Hinsdale, IL- Investigating Milton Township, Adam Andrzejewski, Chairman of For the Good of Illinois PAC, has uncovered thousands in tax dollars spent on travel junkets and fine dining; thousands spent on gas purchases without receipts, mileage or travel logs; good evidence of township credit for personal use; and solid evidence that township cell phone and email were used for politics in the last couple of election cycles.

Then, Andrzejewski uncovered the potentially large township liabilities:
Was a “secret surveillance” program installed? Without legal opinion or board approval, the non-transparent process to install township building surveillance was so sloppy that it resulted in a price quote “…to record audio at the assessor’s desk”- unbeknownst to the assessor.
After surveillance was installed, were citizens secretly taped without notice? Weeks after the cameras were live, Andrzejewski documents no notice or posting of surveillance.
Did township employees drink and drive in township vehicles? The story is corroborated on township email. Where is the accountability and rules changes?
Lack of basic employee management control: Mary Dickson of Bond-Dickson- the township attorney, and Township Supervisor Chris Heidorn admitted that Hinkle was a man without a time card, job activity report, or job description for the first eight years of his employment.
Mr. Ralph Hinkle was first hired by Milton Township in 2004 as a part-time employee making $16 thousand dollars a year. Since 2004, Hinkle has “morphed” into a full-time employee costing taxpayer's $304 thousand dollars over the last seven years.
