In Rare Move, Bad Cops Who Lied to Be Fired

Several Chicago cops who lied and gave false information about the murder of Laquan McDonald will be fired.

Meanwhile, Aurora Corrupt Cop Kristen Ziman who routinely lies, could hire the dishonest cops from Chicago as part of her effort to transform the APD into a full force of pansies, corrupt and dishonest cops and gradually eliminate any good cops in Aurora.

We strongly support maximum criminal charges against any police officer, state's attorney or anyone in law enforcement who lies, conspired with others to lie or covers up lies.

The only way good cops will get credit is when we and they root out bad cops within our community.

Shodeen announces another redevelopment, this one in downtown Batavia. Meanwhile, in Aurora, after 11 years, we have a weed lot across from City Hall along with more weeds, piles of environmental waste and big mud puddles south of Benton. So this is the best Aurora do? Pathetic.

Aurora needs new people in their development departments.

Firing failing executives at the City? Talk about a rare move.

Those responsible for the ghettoization of West Plaza, N. Lake, S. Lake, Indian Trail, Broadway and just about every older business area in Aurora need to get fired. So should the ones who couldn't get any new construction along Orchard and the I88/Eola interchange over the past 12 years.

A cop stopped in my restaurant last week, so I asked him his thoughts about todays society. He showed me a book that just happened to be about social issues and police work. He said it was a required book for promotion. Well I know police are up on the issues and left him to his reading.

I wasn't aware that cops could even read. That in an of itself is amazing.

The Silverplate Building is getting a mural! Woot hoot! Thanks to the exemplary work of our highly-paid development people at the City, the building's been vacant for over 20 yrs but it's gonna have a mural. Does that count as a new business?

7:40 AM, I am curious what is it you expect the development people to actually do?

I88 / Eola has a big church. other cities like Lombard, Downers Grove, Oakbrook, Naperville have big corporations, shopping, restaurants and hotels along I88. Aurora has Motel 6.

Maybe 200 kids go to the Batavia school district from Aurora. BUT 100% of the tax money from the outlet mall and businesses north of there go to Batavia not Aurora schools. How about that!

Did anyone read that article about the Aurora Park District? I can't believe that they want a tax increase! What alternate reality are they living in?

Maybe if that appointed board at the Fox Valley Park District would quit awarding luxurious salaries and pensions to its directors, no increase would be necessary.

They paid Bob Vaughan, who is now a Board member, a whopping $454,800 for his last year of employment (2004). Mr. Vaughan enjoys a ludicrous $188,000 pension, courtesy of you, the taxpayer. They paid Steve Messerli $376,000 for his last year of employment (2010). Mr. Messerli enjoys an equally inappropriate pension of $180,000. Nancy McCaul, who retired nearly 2 years ago, was also awarded a generous one. Anybody know how much it is?

Vaughan and Messerli were paid more than the mayor of Chicago and the governor of Illinois! For administering a Park District!! Is there no limit to this pension extravaganza?

Jim Pilmer, who had no Park District experience, was hired by his friends on the Board at a salary of $150,000 and also received additional perks and benefits. When he retires in 4 years, what will be his final year's salary? How much will his fat pension be?

Look up these salaries and pensions for yourself at openthebooks.com.

Is this Board absent all sense and judgement?

All of these directors retired or will retire in their 50's. While the vast majority of Aurorans work well into their 60's because they must, these privileged administrators were awarded high salaries for their last year of employment and granted off the chart pensions while still being of working age.

With the median FAMILY HOUSEHOLD income in Aurora at $60,000, it's disgusting that the Board is paying these fantasy land salaries and pensions while scheming up a tax increase.

I am reminded of these stupid personnel and financial decisions, in addition to the Board's fiscal irresponsibility and incompetence, each time I pay my tax bill.

Don't they understand that we already pay some of the highest taxes in America? With the sludge of local governmental bodies we have in Aurora and this state, they want us to pay more?

If the Park District needs more of my money, start by being responsible and reversing fiscal mistakes. Have Bobby, Stevie and Nanci voluntarily half their abusive pensions. They'll still be making far more money than most local retirees.

Jimmi, how about reducing your bloated executive staff by 25% with a 20% pay cut? How about all of you start working 60-70 hours a week (and I mean actually getting your hands dirty running park and recreational programs, not impressing people at meetings or courting the media about some "compelling story.")? With all of those $100,000 plus salaries, bust your butts doing real productive work, kind of like what's required in the private sector for big salaries.

We know these people have at least a month of vacation now. Reduce it to two weeks with no additional money paid out for vacation buy backs or other governmental nonsense.

After a year, let's see how much of my money's been saved. This should not be the same Park District of 15 years ago so show the hard-working taxpayers how quickly you can make these changes, before you even consider asking us to pay more.

Then the new Board, which will be freely elected in April, can start discussing revenue and operations with a fresh set of eyes. Hopefully, they'll be residents who have worked in the business world and understand how Illinois has been ruined in a big way by government and irresponsible spending habits.

If you can't correct these gross inequities, then you don't even deserve a place on your own meeting agenda.

So who will be the Acting Mayor now that Weisner has submitted his resignation effective 10/30?

Anonymous said...

I'm curious if the Fox Valley Park District has a nepotism law. I know that Aurora does not.

So I guess the stories about that blue guy Alfado were true as he will be made chief of the police when Chapa Via is mayor. Her husband will have access to millions in "grants" from the city to fund their many failed business ventures.

What about the Park District? Can they hire family?
