Public Funds for Elections?

Here’s a question: Is it illegal to use village funds in conjunction with election campaigning? I only ask, because Business Cards bought and paid for by the Village for Village Trustees probably should end up here:   These are being delivered by Trustee Burroway while he and his supporters...

The Bully and the Meetings

how-to-stop-bullying1

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...

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...

Political Rhetoric vs Ideological Conviction

I debated as to whether or not I should add this as a comment or a post, but tonight’s meeting has truly made me see that this cause is the appropriate course of action.  And that more board meetings will need to be attended.  I’m going to let everyone...

Public awareness and Involvement

change-management

I think we can all agree that we spend most of our time, living our lives, not really paying attention to our governments (federal, state, local).  Hell, we live in Illinois, arguably the most corrupt state in the United States.  With the back room deals and behind closed door...

The Big Bad Unions!

Big-Dawg-590-LI

It’s all because of the unions!  That’s right everyone, the big bad unions have swooped into the village and are throwing their extremely large, corrupt weight around in attempt to take over control of the village – and next, the world!  Seriously, the village board has already claimed to...

Who is our Village Manager?

Portrait-VillageManager

We know who our trustees are – they live in our town and are a resident like us.  Of course, only 1 of our trustees lives on the east side of the river, and even then it’s in old-town, not the east side like some of us.  However, we...
