Answers pieced together through interviews, records, and city documents involves a familiar mix of names, rubber stamping, political clout, and lax oversight.
Influence and clout from Rep Rita (with ties directly to Madigan) promoted appointments announced by Mayor Vargas at the Blue Island city council meeting. Blue Island an impoverished municipalitiy where transparency and accountability is lax "putting ... taxpayer dollars at risk" as an attorney, Mayor Vargas (Blue Island) and Rep Rita "should know better."

Give Mayor Rita time to complete all his firing & hiring before you criticize. There will be another election yet for him to aquire 7 more alderman and then things will only get better!

Failure on multiple levels for all elected officials who sat on their hands, allowed and covered up the whole municipal Blue Island mess on all levels. Charges are in order regarding misappropriated funds, abuse of power, and unacceptable actions.
Bullies with no credibility or positive regard for others.
