The Trustees should be Ashamed …

integrity2a

As we reported earlier, on March 14th, 2015, during a break of the audit and finance commission meeting, Village Manager Rooney had an altercation with Humberto Garcia, a commission member and trustee candidate.  Mr. Garcia, in his remarks to the Trustees on March 17th, described what happened as an...

They Know they’re going to Win…

rooneysminions

Now, I’m not one to normally partake in the making of a politically motivated cartoon image – but I couldn’t resist.  As Trustee Humpfer seems to believe that my investigation into the Manager is a “personal vendetta” I figured that I might remind him what my opinion is on...

As Predicted … Once a Bully, always a Bully

92841418

In some of the previous posts regarding Rooney’s Bullyism, I predicted that those complaints that the Village actually released (truthfully, I believe there are a lot more, but hey, this village has a history of hiding information – even from their own “independent investigators”) would not be the last...

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 –...

The Bully and the Meetings

Well, what an interesting board meeting tonight.  I was glad to have been able to speak, and to be in attendance during the duration of the meeting.  I’d like to offer a few comments, since we simply can’t make comments during the meeting.  What I find supremely interesting is...

Facts & FOIAs Revisited

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...

Truth in Press Releases

brainconnected

It always makes me wonder whether or not press releases are truthful – or more hopeful in nature.  In the case of this press release however, it’s pretty clear that hopeful is the best case scenario for a description. I’ve discussed at length the reasons for the “disagreement,” but...

Audit, Finance, Public Safety and Communication

answers

I had the pleasure of attending the last audit and finance commission meeting, as requested by Trustee Humpher when he seemingly invited me (and any other resident that wanted to attend) to the meeting to “Roll up your sleeves” and discuss these issues with the commission.  Alas, Trustee Humpher...

Solutions Requested? OK!

stubborn

The board meeting last night was very interesting, and I appreciate that the Trustees are at least looking at what I’ve been saying even if it’s to just deflect the criticism.  I sincerely hope that the Trustees understand that my dissatisfaction with the job performance of the Trustees has nothing...

FOIA’s & Facts

foia-banner

First, because this needs to be said, I am not here writing all this stuff, and spending all this time putting this stuff together with the illusion that anyone will actually believe anything that I have to say without checking it out for themselves.  Everyone has their own opinion,...
