Wonder what the nepotism policy is in Harrisburg? Heard that Gerald Mahan has told some people a family member of his will get the next open position with the city. Sounds illegal to me.

Didnt say that it did......but what are you....what is anybody going to do about it when its spread so far these days?.....it isnt just hbg, saline county, illinois.......its everywhere......if no politician cares about it, no commander in chief, then how is a end to nepotism going to happen? Hell, supposedly the next sheriff deputy has already been picked and the hiring system hasnt even been completed yet and his dad is a saline county board member, let alone I believe the president. If you say anything in public about that someone will pipe up and say "well, the board has nothing to do with the board that hires for the department" well ya, thats the " textbook" reply , but we all know that it does have something to do with it lol

True, City Police and Deputies are already picked before testing...

Just like was said above.....new deputy hired whos dad happens to be the saline county board president....no interviews or anything . How convenient. Had a test to make it look good, then no background checks done (but said they were) and no interviews, so whats the county merit board for exactly? Nah, nepotism and cronyism doesnt run rampant here .
