So...recently now that the Park District board has total control they voted to hire the Park Board President TJ Whitcomb to a full time position of Park Superintendent with a salary of $39k per YEAR. Isn't that a conflict of interest?? What a way to create a job for yourself!!!

Rather?? Rather then what?? Whether its Jacobs or TJ they are both wrong and so is the board!! Creating a job for an unemployed Commissioner is wrong no matter who it is!!!

Yeah but, did TJ steal $250,000.00 from the children and Parks?I can't believe you people think it's ok for a scumbag and his little scumette to do that.She walks around like a little prissy thing driving her Caddy and the kids are left out,

if anyone...we were reimbursed for the monies that were stolen. He did his time. We have to move on.... We have had the money back for a few years.

TJ resigned to take the job. No conflict of interest. His step father Al Chmielak is now the president. The board voted to give TJ the job that was vacated by the former director (of 3 months) when he was fired/resigned.There was no other search to look for a new director. Just an appointment for TJ.

Last meeting they appointed Jodi (TJ's mom and Al's wife) for the vacant commissioner. When I questioned the appointment of Jodi, they told me it wasn't illegal. That was their first comment. IMO when you have to quantify your statement that it's not illegal...that doesn't look good , but I was told it was only my opinion.... The vacant post was not posted or looked into anyone else filling that position, just appoint mom. No one else was qualified, we were told.

So now Tj's boss is his mom and his step dad along with 3 other commissioners. How convenient! Only in Illinois does this go on and no one care. Machine politics in the suburbs. Nepotism at it's best.

Haha they have board power to vote their son a raise. Sounds illegal. Seriously Ladner writes an article making these two out to be saints. I heard they were harassing/assaulting some young kids in the park the other day
