Bolingbrook, IL. (ECWd) -
We previously published an article, including a letter, written to the DuPage Township Supervisor Felix George, by former Supervisor Bill Mayer in which he is trying to get the township board to rescind an action taken in 2019 to issue a corrected W-2 form to Mayer.
The letter was written by Mayer's Attorney, John Spina, who was also the DuPage Township attorney when Mayer was the Supervisor prior to his resignation.
In response, Township Trustee Benford, through her attorney, Rob Hanlon, sent Spina this letter in response.
Key points from Benford's response letter:
- Bill Mayer enjoys the reputation he has deservedly earned based on his widely reported conduct
- Statements made during a public meeting are protected speech
- Civil action (against a public body) must be commenced within one year, which clearly places the 2019 board action outside the statute of limitations
- TORT immunity applies
We urge all to read the below letter, it is a fascinating read:
