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...

The Emperor and the Ordinances

Getting back to the mission with which this site was founded, we are going to talk about a subject that was previously covered before the elections.  This is important to you as a taxpayer – your money is on the line with this one … We’ll give a brief...

Post Election

First, I’d like to offer my congratulations to the winners of yesterday’s elections.  Both Trustee Sabbe and Trustee Humpfer have declared their intent to listen and be honest.  I welcome that, and I WILL hold you to it!  Election seasons are rarely as contentious as they were this time,...

Foundations

Conflict of Interest and Enrichment

190208117_640

I realize that there are some, namely all of our current Trustees and Incumbent Candidates along with a select few residents that believe that there is a serious conflict of interest with me running for the Village Board.  (Isn’t it interesting that it’s those with the most to lose that...

Money, Politics and Vendettas

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...

Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays

This is one of those times of the year that it is so easy to continue to focus on the negative in our lives, including how our Village is running, and yet, it is a time of year that we should be celebrating our lives, the lives of our...
