In reference to the your editorial Oct. 1, why should the Caseyville Township Board read and obey the Illinois Open Meetings Act?
After all, the president of the United States has told the U.S. Justice Department to ignore laws passed by Congress and signed by past presidents. He has also signed executive orders telling executive departments of the federal government to enforce certain rules even though he could not get those rules passed by Congress. He even has, at times, ignored the U.S. Constitution.
Our governor has decided that the state Constitution can be ignored (legislators' pay, etc.). So why should a county or township or municipality or even the individual citizen obey the laws?
