As he promised our new Village Clerk, George Schleyer has opted out of participating in the IMRF pension plan. He said he would rather spend his time WORKING for the taxpayers instead of trying to justify a pension. Kudos to George. If all our elected officials were this honest and fair there might not be a pension crisis in Chicago Ridge. Carry on Mr. Clerk. By the way, don't forget the independents are going to be sworn in May 28th, 7 pm, be there to show your support.
Good Job

George is doing the right thing by putting the tax payers first. I happen to know that Ed Moody also rejected the pension plan. Lets hope that every elected official will follow the example set by Ed and George!

I don't understand. Is George a clerk or a voting village trustee? If he opts out of the IMRF pension, that is his choice. I didn't realize there was any morality attached to this decision. Of course he is going to WORK for the people. That is what he is being paid for. If a pension is offered as a perk for your job, why would you not take it if you do your job honestly and to the best of your ability? Are other people who WORK for taxpayers, or WORK for their employer expected to opt out of their pensions? This is political posturing by another "non-political" "reformer".

I like how you can keep calling the Village Clerk job a part-time Job. The responsibilities of the job are pretty big ones. That is what Mayor Chuck always told us. The pay is less than it used to be. Is that what makes it part-time? The job is still the same job. Every union job you can think of has pensions no matter how many hours are worked. Shleyer will work plenty of hours in his "part-time" job and he will wish he took advantage of the benefits. He kept his word, and that is good, but he is trying to be a martyr.

Thank you for seeing my point.

Just do your job, George, and don't editorialize. You will be judged on the job you do,not the politicizing of it. We're counting on you

I think a lot of politicians are upset that George is refusing a pension and that makes them feel insecure.

George is already bowing down and kissing up. He has realized that he got elected to a do-nothing job. He is going to like being irrelevant. Look how that worked out for Chuck, Jack and all of the department heads.

Looks like George struck a nerve. Lynn should stop blogging and hang her barkado in shame.

Check out the article in the little preview newspaper that we get in the mail. George is resurrecting the chamber of commerce. Another promise kept. What would Lynn be doing if she were in that office right now. Probably a whole lot of nothing. Go George Go.

To bad he didn't promise to know what he was doing in the Clerk's job. Any jackass can kick down a barn. Can he demonstrate the ability to perform the duties of the position? A typical qualifying background is a Bachelor’s degree in Records Management, Public or Business Administration, or a related field; with any responsible experience providing administrative staff support. The Clerk's position directs the Village's records management program.

Does he have any combination of training, education, and experience which to a not-for-profit, board, commission, or other body which required developing agendas, preparing minutes, and maintaining official records? NOOO! Supervisory experience in a bakery? It is highly unlikely that his bakery operation is not close to the Village Hall operation.

So your telling me thet Lynn Barker had all of these qualifications to be the clerk. I don't think so.

If you're so concerned, why didn't you run (unless you are Lynn) or find someone qualified and convince them to run?

What business does George own? The Chamber of Commerce is not a government agency? If I am right and a Chamber is not a government agency and apparently owning a business is not a requirement for organizing a Chamber chapter, then what was our great leader waiting for? Why didn't he start this thing back after he lost his two other elections? If this is the answer that saves the village what was stopping him before? He must know that the Chamber idea has never worked in the Ridge.

You need to hear this again: To bad he didn't promise to know what he was doing when he ran for the Clerk's job. Any jackass can kick down a barn and George can kick.

He is doing nothing to demonstrate the ability to perform the duties of the Clerk's position. He has no qualifying background like a Bachelor’s degree in Public or Business Administration, or any related field. He has no experience providing any administrative staff support. He does not have any combination of training, education, and experience serving a not-for-profit, board, commission, or other body which required developing agendas, preparing minutes, and maintaining official records. Supervisory experience in a bakery? It is highly unlikely that his bakery operation is close to the Village Hall operation. He should be the first face that residents see when they go to the Village Hall. Instead he is making himself irrelevant. Good work Mr. Reformer/lapdog.
