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?

Peck was the top vote getter in the last trustee election when he still had many people fooled that Read Morehe was a well-intentioned fiscally conservative representative of the people. Within a year of that election, he exposed himself for what he really is, nearly destroyed a park district, wreaked havoc on nearly everything he touched, and in the process single-handedly destroyed his own political future. Unless he has 1500 absentee votes in his back pocket for the next election, I doubt he could be elected to anything, let alone trustee again or mayor. If he does, it would surprise me because so many have, and continue to, distance themselves from him like he was kryptonite. It's a story with a real bad ending that never had to be told. Very unfortunate.
