This has all blown up out of proportion. First, it never should have made it to the media. Second, why did I get a copy of the report before the council meeting from one of Doris' mass emails, not the Boone camp or the media as claimed in the lawsuit? Third, What prompted Boone to file a complaint? Was it the Mayor, Shockey and Sweeney threatening her job if she didn't go with their plan or did she truly feel harassed?

And if Doris got her copy from Boone releasing it that is fine. My fear is that she got a copy in her capacity as a council member and released it first. Just say the truth.

Just because you can't comprehend it doesn't give you the right to tell me to shut up. I'm going to keep on so get used to it.

How little you really see and know is very evident in your posts. Knowing the laws and when the mayor choooses to apply them should be a number one priority. That has not been the case for the past 12 months.
That was certainly evident last night. Seems Counts falls all over himself releasing what he feels will hurt his possible opponent in the mayoral race. The media had copies of the Boone/Moss report BEFORE even the council had them! Counts was putting his eggs in the basket of the summary of that report, which sounded like it was dictated by him and his other 2 cronies in crime, Shockey and Sweeney. But anyone actually reading the report would find the summary describes something very different than what the interviewees said. But I digress. I shouldn't be surprised that the Leader and Patch didn't take the time to actually read the report. The lying press release from the mayor made a good cover story.

But now the blatant hypocrisy comes to light! Seems Shockey is not only accused of sexual discrimination, but has a lawsuit against him and the city for it! All Moss had was some unfounded accusations and Counts fell over himself paying Boone off with taxpayer money. But his chief of police? No, no taking him in the back room asking him to resign. Counts didn't blab this to the media like he did the Boone case. Not at all. Instead, Counts promotes the man with the sexual discrimination lawsuit and gives him a $40,000 pay raise! Aren't you glad he's running the city his way? I'm not!

Attacking Counts again are we? May e it was Sweeney or Shockey that headed it up. You have some pretty serious allegations in there. Could you please post the proof you ha e that it was Counts that planned and executed the whole thing?

Well, it is sure clear that the two cases involving discrimination were treated quite differently! Counts is the elected head of Arnold. The city administrator and the city attorney both report to him. He is supposed to be in the loop on EVERYTHING! That is his job and it is their job to KEEP HIM IN THE LOOP! So yes, Mr. Counts is ultimately responsible.

This political mudslinging is ridiculous. If Doris wanted to get elected as Mayor, she should have tried to accomplish something positive in the last 2 years. The insurance company and the attorney it hires handle the Boone issue and the Ott issue. It is flat out political lying to try to blame either situation on Counts or Sweeney. The insurance company surely has more experience in these matters than Moss, Hohmeier, and Borgelt.

But with their vast micromanaging skills and legal experience, surely they know better than the people who actually have legal degrees and management experience.

It is all political mudslinging, you are right.

Why are so many things from the past suddenly coming to light? Doris promised the citizens that she would expose stuff, yet she holds all of the information for when she "thinks" it benefits her and we never see the proof. She is out for herself and not the citizens.

She throws mud at Counts. Tell me how he is supposed to handle something that is hidden from him? He can't. If your family member is having marital problems how can they blame you for not helping them if thy hide it from you? You can't.

I find it funny that Doris accuses everyone that doesn't agree with her of having "mental instabilities". She did it to Mike Evans on her Facebook site and a few others I can see on here (the thread name after me that someone had deleted...how do you do that?). I guess that is her cop out for people that suddenly see her for what she is and disassociate from her. She has to find a way to make them look bad rather than be responsible for her actions.

No, that's the clinic that YOU own. LOL. Still thinking I'm ArnoldCC even though you have been repeatedly told otherwise, huh? You really do have an obsession wih her, don't you? Are you stalking her? What about her fascinates you that you have this obsession?

I'm disappointed that you couldn't come up with anything better than that. Try harder. I know you can do it.

Probably because of some serious digging! Counts, Shockey and Sweeney could only keep it covered so long before the right clue appeared to allow someone to go done the correct trail. These rumors of hidden shenanigans have been around for some time, but until the right areas got probed, it remained covered up. Unfortunately the regime went after Moss using some tried and true dirty tactics that seemed to give clues as to how the operate and what to look for.

Also, the precedent was set by Counts to bring out this dirty laundry in his public attempted lynching of Moss. Unfortunately, that will cost the tax payers dearly as they have to foot for his lies. Now we know what he was covering up for his chief of police! Thank goodness for some willing to shed light on this. Maybe the good ole boys will learn that they have to play fair and by the rules and these back room deals will not be tolerated.

If there were any good news to come from this it would be that Counts gets replaced, along with Sweeney, the city government gets cleaned up, and the tax payers will get to stop being the bank for the corrupt deals and payouts Counts and Sweeney work up.

The other option will be the residents continue getting what they deserve if they put Counts back in. That really hurts those that care enough to look for the truth and want to correct the problems.

I'll still vote for Counts. I do not believe Doris has the tact to be Mayor. She refuses to get along with anybody and launches personal attacks on citizens (example Mike Evans). When you are representing people you cannot do that. You have to represent people and be IMPARTIAL and work WITH then whether you like them or not.

Have you seen how Counts treats people? Why don't you ask the Veteran that he belittled last night at the council mtg. The difference between Doris and counts is this..... You always know where you'll stand with Doris. With Counts he'll tell you one thing to your face and do just the exact opposite of what he said. So it's up to you.. If you want someone nice but can not keep order in his meetings because of his ways and lies or do you want someone who is blunt but honest, does not sugar coat anything and does her best to keep it open to the public. You decide.. You have to live with your vote.

You don't know where you stand with Doris. One minute she backed Evans and the next she is accusing him of being mentally unstable and is publically berating him on her mayoral Facebook page.

Apparently he is not the only one.

Aka. Beth akka lettusnamenames.........

You may call it rude to turn over the old rocks and stir the old pot. Call an ace an ace. If the shoe fits wear it. Nothing rude about her as long as your honest and trustworthy. Evans seems to have turned that corner. People change. Sometimes you can't be faithful for ever. Evans view and Doris's are different now. You see how Evans is walking the walk.....

Beth is not me. Guess you're having a hard time believing there are more people than just me that feel that way about Doris.

Elmhurst, IL, is what anybody from near my house has. I had my neighbor prove it a couple weeks ago because I thought it was odd. Come over here and try it. After my last post I saw a patient that arrived slightly late for their appointment.
