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...

Let’s Talk about “Misinformation” (3)

Why is proper Fire Department staffing so important?  There are agencies in the United States such as Underwriter’s Laboratories and NIST that conduct scientific studies in many different areas of employment, one of them is firefighter safety and occupant survival.  Over the course of the past few years, their...

Let’s Talk about “Misinformation” (2)

koolaid1

Continuing our multi-part post on Village Board Statements vs Village Documents we have an email from Deputy Chief Skillman.   Last Saturday, when pressed, Deputy Chief Skillman said the Fire Department manning is good.  On several occassions, DPS Popp and D/C Skillman have both said that manning is adequate and...

Board Meetings

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...

Isn’t it time to ask the Hard Questions?

As we continue our march towards election time, I had a chance to look over those budgets posted on the village website again.  If given the chance to be your Trustee, I want everyone to know – I will ask the hard questions.  I will be wrong at times in...

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...

VOTE OF NO CONFIDENCE

Some may say that a Vote of No Confidence is largely a ceremonial thing that has little meaning and no effect.  But, I believe that in it’s basic form, the public truly does listen to what other residents think, and are capable of taking something as ceremonial as a...

Thoughts about Openness

I’ve been thinking lately about the progression of this site, and of the ultimate goals that I had in starting it and maintaining it.  I know that there are some who don’t believe that my reasons are as lofty as I have suggested they are, and who were concerned...

Welcome to 2014

After a nice time away from the hustle and bustle of the suburbs, we are ready to get back to work.  It’s always nice during the holidays to take some time away from everything with your family and go somewhere.  I hope that everyone reading this, if not able...

Public Speaking

As most know already, I intend to speak tonight during the public comments.  I’ve managed to get my comments down to 5 minutes, although I’m sure I could fill quite a few more.  I look forward to seeing you all there tonight.  As a preview, I’m posting here the...
