The latest news involves dragging original Advocates founder Ken Lerner back into the web of lies created by Megan Schroeder and Julia Beckman. Ken was Treasurer in the early days when Advocates were a group of residents concerned about the community. He kept the books as Treasurer and filed the required election paperwork with the State Board of Elections. He filed a final statement on January 30, 2006. During that time Stephen Daniels, Library Board President and lawyer, was Chairman of Advocates Caucus 2005.
Now seven years later Megan Schroeder has filed new paperwork for the new Downers Grove Community Advocates NFP and uses Ken’s home address, and lists Ken as the former Chairman and Treasurer, all without his knowledge or permission, and all fabricated out of thin air.
Ken Lerner has no connection to Advocates since he quit in 2007 over disagreements in how Advocates had become a back room political machine that pre-decided who they would endorse, and then rammed those recommendations through the group, counting on get-along-go-along, trickery, and using other members honesty against them.
More as this unfolds. No questions are getting answered, but more are piling up.
