Needs of the Community

cscandidateposter

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...

Assault at Public Works?

code-240

A lot of interesting things can happen in a day.  This morning was the St. Patrick’s day parade in Down Town East Dundee, and a great time was had by all.  While my family and I were getting ready, the Village was holding one of it’s Audit and Finance...

Money, Politics and Vendettas

integrity2a

I was asked recently during an interview several questions which I wasn’t entirely prepared for, but never-the-less had an answer for, and these are questions that seem to be circulating, so I thought I’d write a post to give everyone the chance to hear the answer. The first one...

VOTE OF NO CONFIDENCE

Vote+Of+No+Confidence+424127_226493830782362_17281831

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...

Audit, Finance, Public Safety and Communication

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...

Communication is Everything

Communication(10)

It’s amazing what the power of communication has to teach, to understand and to learn.  As I’ve said previously – I’m in this to bring awareness to myself and my neighbors, not just to make a point or be a pain in the butt … and part of that means learning...

Back to Basics

I was driving home this morning – and saw a sight that may very well be the saddest sight I’ve seen in a long time – and believe me, that is saying something.  Driving home from my daughter’s school (none of us are immune to our kids forgetting their...

Priorities!

priorities

So, what’s the point of all this?  Why start speaking up?  What benefit does this have … what motivates people to take a stand?  PRIORITIES.  We all have them – the line in the sand.  Everyone, to varying degrees, will tolerate a certain amount of dishonesty in our leaders, and...

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...
