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?

Mike Vaughn, After watching the Plainfield Village Board meeting, I have come to the conclusion Read Morethat after Trustee spoke, there was no issue whatsoever. He stated that he felt it was unethical on his part to vote for a liquor license for an establishment that would directly compete with Hop Scotch and Vine shortly after HS&V donated major sponsorship to the local Republican Party. That is what we call “pay to play politics” and he made the right choice. What I find so interested is how fast Village Trustee Margie Bonuchi and the owner of Hopscotch and Vine Mike Vaughn were so quick to attack Mr. Peck for his choice. Had nothing been said, this would be a dead issue. Now that I have looked into it, I find it questionable that Margie Bonuchi voted against allowing another bar/restaurant a half block or so from Hop Scotch and Vine without any explanation. It must be a coincidence that The Bonuchis are close friends with the owners of HS&V and even take vacations with them. History tells us that Mr. Vaughn agreed to be part owner of Bin 48 and backstabbed them while opening HS&V during that process. He also allegedly called the Will County Health Department on one of his competitors on Lockport Street. For Margie Bonuchi to assert that HS&V welcome more bars/restaurants in the area is a bold faced lie. She is voting to protect her friend’s business from local competition. Lockport Street cannot be bought by sucking up to Margie Bonuchi Mr. Vaughn! Mr. Vaughn writes that he is a lifetime resident of Plainfield. Well Mr. Vaughn, that doesn’t give you permission to treat people in town like garbage. Mr. Vaughn, were you dishonorably discharged from the military? If so, please indulge us! Sincerely, Mrs. Valerie Walker
