At your Annual Town Meeting, take time and listen carefully to what your residents want, need or care about. The annual town meeting is the one time a year that the residents have a direct say in how their township government is run.

The calumet township did not convene a real annual town hall meeting this April 2013.

The residents in attendance were treated in a shameful manner, by township clerk Fred biloto, the township attorney, and the township clerk hand picked moderator Martin sosnowski. To ad insult to injury, the moderator was paid two hundred dollars of the taxpayers money.
It is important to note the township supervisor bob Rita was absent.

The township must hold a proper annual town hall meeting in the future.

It is a great place. We get a full time salary, and you don't have to show up. You CAn get your college paid for, and they even pay you while you study. You really.can't match it.

Townships across the state have been collecting a portion of your property tax bill for years, without providing an equal amount of services back. In reality, these governments are simply a localized version of countywide government with similar programs and services. Most residents aren’t even aware of what Townships provide (many aren’t even aware they exist!), much less have any idea who the elected officials are.

There is no coincidence that the Trustees, Supervisors, and other Township employees want you to be blind to the business they conduct—or don’t conduct.  Our Townships are filled with cronies who gladly earn a salary and generous benefits off of your hard work.  It’s time for Republicans to stand for limited government once again—and put an end to Township government.

In the recent ABC-7 I-Team Report, the Better Government Association brought to light the corruption and waste housed within the walls of Township government.“Cronyism, nepotism, patronage...all in the service of taking care of friends and families and campaign contributors," said Andy Shaw, executive director, Better Government Association.

By abolishing Townships, we’ll provide tax relief to everyone: seniors on fixed incomes, average families, and families going through rough times. You won’t hear the Establishment politicians calling for the waste to stop because they benefit from the cronyism and tax-payer funded patronage that Townships provide.

Township government excels at cronyism and tax-payer funded patronage. Townships rarely make an effort to hide this unethical behavior due to no oversight, lack of accountability, responsibility, daring legal challenge.

But that’s not the only problem with Townships. We have a similar problem with double dipping much like the pension system. Currently there is no stopping state legislators from holding positions in multiple levels of government. Three state elected officials hold posts in Springfield and their local townships, cashing in twice on lucrative salaries and benefits paid for by you!

You might wonder Who they could be; well you don't have to look far to locate one of them!

I viewed this website, it shows no meeting schedules, no elected officials info, no General Assistance info. I get the feeling they are not even open to help the public! They are there to help only themselves.
Thanks

I tried to access the Calumet Township website, there is no information available. Nothing. What are they trying to hide? Everything. This is the same thing that will happen to Blue Island Government, with the so called Independents puppets elected.

The next meeting will be today Thursday the twenty seventh of June at 630 p.m. This is a very important meeting for Calumet Township residents, the Trustees will vote on how taxpayers dollars will be spent for this fiscal year. If you have any questions, show up, they will be answered. Bring your Family and Neighbors. If you have any questions go to the township website.

Springfield and local governments have failed as well. Taxes are at an all time HIGH. Corruption has to be prosecuted from the top down.
