Money can't replace a good reputation. The children and future grandchildren will be hurt from their actions. People don't forget bad politicians.

The City of Blue Island (i.e. the tax payers) is being sued by a former fire fighter because our public health and safety commissioner John Rita decided he was above the rules. The civil service is a branch of governmental service in which individuals are employed on the basis of professional merit as proven by competitive examinations. These people have to prove to the community that they can actually do their jobs! The Blue Island Civil Service Commission, chaired by Loretta Hauschild is responsible for the fair distribution of jobs for our police and fire departments. The commission is regulated under Illinois state law 65 ILCS 5/Art. 10 Div. 2.1 heading) DIVISION 2.1. BOARD OF FIRE AND POLICE COMMISSIONERS and also bound by the collective agreements signed with the police/fire unions. These agreements are legal documents under the law.
Last summer, John Rita decided that none of this mattered. According to the court documents filed in federal court last month, John not only cut a qualified fireman who had played by the rules out of his job but bullied the civil service commission into accepting a list of personal political appointees for police and fireman jobs. Blue Island needs and deserves the best qualified police officers and firemen who have passed the exams and EARNED the privilege to work for Blue Island.
The Blue Island Civil Service Commission will meet on Wednesday night. Under Illinois law, The commission is an independent, apolitical governing body whose only concern is the fair treatment of our police and fireman. The people of Blue Island need these people on this commission to do their job.
John Rita has repeatedly disgraced himself as a public servant by appearing at city council and committee meetings and bullying people. Now his bullying has cost Blue Island its reputation and the tax payers a lot of money. This needs to stop. Today.
You can win this fight,but you must pick up your pace. Attend every city council meeting and question Mayor Vargas on his refusal to appoint a Police Chief. The Civil Service commission are puppets for the administration, you must not depend on them to do the right thing. There is more support to correct this wrong then you realize. You must face the fact that Mayor Vargas is a liar, he will look you straight in the eyes and lie to you.

and WE as voters and constituents must be there as well to support this demand - EVERY council meeting should be jammed with MEDIA present !

The Rita's are only concerned with themselves. The Rep is a little mouthy punk with a criminal record. They both do what is best for the Rita's. Both will sell you out in a heartbeat. So will their flunkies like Palcu.
