Bob Anderson discusses his almost three decade old quest to consolidate townships on Friday, Jan 5, 2018. The Wonder Lake barber has seen little support from his political peers, and progress has been slow. Now backed by the support of some legislators in Springfield and a new state law that gives voters the power to consolidate units of government, it appears Anderson is at the doorstep of accomplishing – at least in part – his controversial mission: abolishing townships.
