Like that's going to happen ...

I'd like to think Plainfield could do better than the bare bones minimum score of 80.8 when 80 isRead Morere quired to receive the Sunshine Award. Disclosing board packets would certainly help their score. ______http://www.buglenewspapers.com/enterprise/article_0932941e-d566-11e3-946f-0017a43b2370.html_____I bet Bill Lamb will say they aren't required to disseminate them and according to law he's right under the OMA but it all must be disclosed under FOIA. Yet, he's the first one to blow off about the 'Plan Commission' annual report or the engineers report. If I can't see it Bill then don't say another babble about it. Or maybe this is an accomplishment some Village Trustee could put on their resume and be proud of their transparency record as the board they served on improved transparency. All I hear is crickets so far. We have a state office candidate around Plainfield saying he's the 'champion of transparency' but I don't hear one peep out of this person when it comes to disclosing board packets. All the other surrounding towns do this for their residents so why is Plainfield so behind the times? Do they want the residents to be uninformed?

I have to give Trustee Racich a lot of credit for stepping up last night. I know I have openlyRead Morecriti cized Trustee Racich based on some of his decisions and we are not going to agree on everything, life would be quite boring if I agreed with everything everyone said. I am quite sure Trustee Racich does not like some of 'Ron's' comments either. However, he is certainly a Trustee that I can respect for admitting he has made the same mistake in the past. The public should know why or why not someone is voting against something and there's nothing wrong with stating your reasons. Thank you again Trustee Racich.Now I'd like to see some trustees step up and demand the Village Administration start posting the Board Meeting packets online with agenda just like every other surrounding town. Why is Plainfield so behind the times and keeping the public uninformed?

Ethics - that would take GUTS to explain!

RJ and others, I’m going to put up a cleaner separate post on Patch regarding the boardRead Morepacket request. That will move it to a new article AND let me make the web links look good and function.
