Alorton Mayor, Three Others Charged WIth Open Meeting Violations

BELLEVILLE, Ill. (KMOX) –  Multiple counts of violating the Opens Meetings Act have been filed against both the former and current mayors of Alorton Illinois.

According to charges filed by St. Clair County State’s Attorney Brendan Kelly, then-mayor Randy McCallum met with a quorum of village trustees in January to discuss his resignation.

Also present at that meeting was Treymella Johnson, who was eventually named to succeed McCallum as mayor.

Johnson is also charged in connection with a meeting in February, in which she was officially appointed mayor.

Kelly says in neither instance was a notice made to the public, nor were records kept of what was said during the meeting.

Also charged are Alorton trustees Perry Young and Dorothy Crockett.

A hearing has been set for May 29th at the St. Clair County courthouse.
