Blue State Blues

flag-fireworks1In 2009 when I attended my first Tea Party Rally in Joliet, I met Adam Andrzejewski. At the time he introduced himself as a candidate for Governor of Illinois. I asked him point blank if he was a Conservative, he answered yes I am. Eventually, he ran against machine candidate Pat Quinn and lost big. However, he did not stop his effort to make a difference in Illinois politics. His next venture is a website called “For the Good of Illinois.” Adam regularly exposes corruption at all levels. More recently he has uncovered a huge rip off by College of DuPage President and his Board of Directors. Mind you, College of DuPage is a Junior college not a four year college. Adam has been campaigning to have the President step down from his position, and the board responded with a $762,868.77 severance package. This money doesn’t include his State pension, but will increase what he gets. What is really hard to understand here is why a Junior College President’s salary is so high as to command three quarters of a million dollars in severance. I worked for a top rated manufacturing company in a management capacity and I know what hard working people make. Even the owner of our company did not take an exorbitant salary.; he chose to reinvest his money in the company. I know what a CEO of a company has to do to keep showing a profit, and the job is huge compared to that of a College President. So why is there such a disparity? Most likely it is because a college doesn’t have to show a profit, and can ask for money from the tax payer simply by playing the sympathy card that they need more money. Sadly, our state government is sympathetic to this kind of extortion. My guess is that under all this college level corruption are a number of State Representatives who are in on the action. I copied the latest report from Adam’s website below. It may seem a little disoriented because I could not transfer all the format. I suggest clicking on the link to get to the site and see it as he presented it.

Many folks will say why should I be interested in what is going on on Illinois at a Junior College level? It is my contention that with some searching as done by Adam you will un cover similar if not more egregious examples of corruption within your own community. The folks have learned that they can extract goodies from the population through taxes and are in on the action. I don’t care how much you like your kid’s teacher, I guarantee there is graft going on within your School District. Start by looking at salaries within the District and begin asking questions about why there are so many high paid people in your school administrations? The teachers get Jack Squat, but their management team has potential for some real money.

I thank Adam of this dogged pursuit of opening the books in Illinois, and showing us what is going on within our communities.

Over 75 regular people gave public comment for over three hours. Watch as I aggressively battled the legalities of this outrageous payment.

Our lawyers – Timothy Elliott, Charlie Philbrick, and Jordan Franklin – convinced Judge Bonnie Wheaton to force COD to open a large room to accommodate the 500 citizens. Read Chicago Tribune article

State Rep. Jack Franks (D- Marengo) threatened to withhold $1.25 million of state funding.

The pressure was intense on this college board… in fact, the board stood up (for the first time in three meetings) for the pledge of allegiance. The board blamed previous COD boards. Incredibly, Trustee Savage blamed the 500 citizens for not showing up– years earlier. Chairman Erin Birt repeatedly stated that she takes this stuff seriously. Really?

And then they rubber-stamped 6-1 the $762,868.77 severance package of the college President. Read Daily Herald recap story here.

The coalition united against this action was formidable and non-partisan. But, for many people in the audience, these were their supposed “friends” – a Republican majority board. The coalition feels sold out.

Last night, this board told the people that their voice doesn’t matter. In the April elections, three board seats are on the ballot. At the ballot box, the people must speak with their vote.

For The Good of Illinois.

  1. In my view, this is the unfortunate fallout of a system that can only measure money. A teacher teaches, which is difficult to measure, at least in dollar terms. An administrator manages, with output measured through indicators like enrolments, fees which are dollar expressable and cannot be questioned.

  2. The PRODUCERS work hard in order to live while so many non producers do, little yet receive much.

Confused about Islam, Muslims, Taqiyya, Kitman, The Islamic State, and Sharia? I've spent 14 years studying these confused beings.  They are not at all what they want us to believe, especially those who are ruled by al Qaeda , ISIS and the Muslim Brotherhood as well as those who commit overt and covert Jihad while practicing Sharia tortures upon women

“ The limitation of riots, moral questions aside, is that they cannot win and their participants know it. Hence, rioting is not revolutionary but reactionary because it invites defeat. It involves an emotional catharsis, but it must be followed by a sense of futility. ” ~ Martin Luther King, Jr.
