Time for another Department Manager

bossfired

Truthfully, it’s been too long without a department head leaving.  Here in Carpentersville, we currently average a department manager loss about once every 4 months.  Apparently it’s time to get rid of another one!!!  Facebook has been abuzz with this tidbit: Carpentersville Seeks New Fire Chief I certainly hope...

Public Duty Doctrine

iloveimmunity-300x202

The Illinois Supreme Court has recently ruled that the Public Duty Doctrine was no longer necessary and has struck it down.  I tend to follow these things because they affect my full time employment, and I’ve had a chance to do some digging as to what this is –...

Let’s talk about “Misinformation” (4)

940b4db0a51a64980b4805b27089996e

I’m going through this audio file from Saturday’s audit and  finance commission meeting.  It makes me angry, it disappoints me, and frankly, it’s surreal.  Folks, these Trustees can say I am just trying to frighten you … sure, it’s a possibility that I am that devious.  OR, I’m actually...

Over the course of the next few days, we are going to be posting various village documents that directly contradict what the Village Board Members say in public. Remember...

Board Meetings

sclogo4.fw

Does anyone else ever notice that Board Meetings are always the same.  We listen to them praise each other, berate those that having differing opinions and finally speak about things which they really don’t understand … Case in point: Trustee Rehberg spoke about a QuadCom initiative to that will reduce...

Intentional or Complacent?

complacency

These days, it’s so hard to tell whether or not our Board is simply just complacent or if they act recklessly with intention.  While the idealist in me wishes fervently to believe that a group of 7 ordinary citizens couldn’t possibly intentionally condone most of what’s been exposed –...

Public Safety is Critical

governmentremovalrequest

Why is public safety, police and fire so critical?  As residents, we might be tempted to answer something like “because they protect us if something happens.”  There are some general truths, such as – someone will always show up to help you when you call 9-1-1.  It’s the system...

Facts & FOIAs Revisited

pesky-truth

Part of my most recent foia has been returned, and no shock here, a vast majority of the information was denied.  Here is a copy of the request: Click Here.  You’ll notice that most of the documents that I requested were specifically to determine whether or not the information...
