Carlinville Alderwoman Beth Toon says Attorney Schuering lied about (illegal) meeting –

By John Kraft & Kirk Allen

On September 5, 2018


During Tuesday’s Carlinville City Council meeting, Alderwoman Beth Toon had a chance to set the record straight from last month when Attorney Dan Schuering told her she didn’t know what she was talking about, and he called us (ECWd) political terrorists.

When it was her time to speak to an agenda item, Toon read a quote from the newspaper, which quoted Schuering as saying the meetings in question never happened (these two meetings are part of our FOIA lawsuit) and Beth Toon was the only one worried about them.

Toon said she had a feeling “there was a big misunderstanding” about the meeting(s), she handed out a picture she took of one of the meetings in question and explained how she entered the room and was asked to leave because they were having a meeting and one of them told her to leave because he was advising his clients. She left the room, went to retrieve her camera, and returned to take the picture.

We have been informed the individuals captured in the picture are Carlinville Electoral Board members and Dan Schuering (the Attorney claiming no meeting happened).

Toon said the meeting did happen and that it is wrong to say otherwise.

    Make sure to press “she handed out a picture” so that you too can see those present at the illegal meeting held at Carlinville City hall that atty Dan Shuering claims never happened. I received a call after Alderman Toon walked in on this meeting. She was shocked and so was I that this meeting took place. What happened to transparency?

    I think Dan Schuering should be FIRED.

    Wow!! Now there’s a Kodak moment for the attorney and the City Council to weasel out of. The deceit and lies of the Carlinville City Council, are known across the State. What better proof; what could possibly be more incriminating; than a picture?

    Thank you to Councilwoman Beth Toon, for doing the right thing and exposing the lies. She has it right.
