Final Thoughts before the Election

images (1)

A lot has certainly happened over the last month.  I wanted to recap a few things for my readers, and fellow citizens of the Village of Carpentersville and to provide a final thought before the election. 1. Despite a very desperate attempt by the Incumbent Trustees, Mr. Burroway and...

Needs of the Community

Readers of this blog, and to the community in Carpentersville … what are the needs of the community?  What is it that Trustees are supposed to do? There are so many answers for that – unique to each resident, and as wide and diverse as the members of our...

Let’s talk about “Misinformation” (4)

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...

Crying Broke

white-bear-shameful

It’s time to renovate the management in our town!  That’s right my fellow Carpentersville residents, businesses and interested people, it’s time to start collecting nominating signatures in our Fair Village for the open positions on the Village Board! For a little over a year now, we at Save Carpentersville have...

Public Safety is Critical

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...

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...
