Just as an aside, I did record the special meeting last night, but it was pretty fast and, for want of a better term, dull. It was Convene. No one had anything to say. Go to closed session to review resumes and decide which Exec Dir candidates should be brought in for interviews. (This was according to Matt Campbell who mentioned to the few people attending that there would unlikely be any action items out of the session, so that no one should feel they'd miss anything if the didn't want to stay.) Reconvene with no action items (On the nosy, Mr. Campbell!). Adjourn. Recording will go up later, but it's not "content rich"! Also, FYI, if you want to go to these special meetings, keep an eye on the location posted for them--yesterday was back at the Ottawa Street district offices, and this one on July 2nd looks to be, too. So, heads up, don't head over to the HPC for these unless you see that a meeting is indeed booked there. Happy Independence Day, y'all!

Oh, and in looking at the agenda for July 2nd, I see they will seek a motion to sort of bind over to Monday, July 7th for the same purpose (gotta get those interviews done!). So, expect another special exec session on the 7th, again at the Ottawa St. Admin Offices, BUT----Don't forget that the regular board meeting is, at least right now, on the calendar for WED, July 9th. THAT one is more like a meeting that the public will find interesting. I think that one would probably still be at the HPC, so back downtown.

Vicki, did you actually stand up for the pledge of allegiance this time? Gossip at the grocery store is that at the last special meeting, you kept your butt firmly planted in your chair and focused on video taping the park board/staff. Your actions show how un-American and Godless you are, which is typical for a left wing liberal like you. Obama doesn't always put his hand on his heart, but at least he gets up for the pledge. You should be ashamed of yourself! I can see you starting a petition to take the pledge out of public school in Plainfield next. You are an insult to every veteran who gave their life for our freedom.

Mr. Hat, Illinois is ranked right at the bottom in job creation, is one of the highest in property taxes, and the state is totally and financially broke. With the state of Illinois in shambles, you are worried about a citizen not standing for the pledge? You should consider refocusing your dialogue at our state's problems rather than making inappropriate insults to a lawful citizen.
