* From the Joliet Township Government’s Facebook page, with emphasis added…
* The Edgar County Watchdogs spotted it and posted about it…
I reached out to Joliet Township Supervisor Daniel Vera this morning and he told me since the deputy township clerk is “sworn in” and “performs the duties of the clerk in the absence of the clerk,” he was under the impression that the post needed to be filled by someone of the same party as the township clerk, who is a Democrat.
But, after the Watchdogs whacked them, Vera said he reached out to his attorney who said the obvious: This is not a Democrat-only job.
“We’ll be taking the ad down this afternoon,” Vera said.
