OMG, I was at a Chicago Ridge Board meeting and Lynn Barker made a complete fool of herself. The board spent 20 minutes discussing the Metra Station railroad crossing and ideas to improve safety. Lynn Barker was in the audience and after the discussion concluded she approached the board and asked if the board could discuss the Metra station railroad crossing.

You could have heard a pin drop, everyone on the board thought she had lost her mind. They had to explain to Lynn that while she was sitting in the audience they discussed this topic at great length. Upon hearing this she just chortled and snorted through her nose, giggled and sat back down.
Not the way I saw it

Really? I was at the meeting too. Because the item was on the agenda, Lynn asked what was being "voted" on relative to Metra. The board then explained that although the item was on the agenda, there was nothing being voted on and that it was on the agenda for discussion purposes only. Question asked and answered. Nothing more than that - not the bumbling scene you've portrayed.

far from it. Yes she was there and so was I. After sitting through the whole meeting-- not right after they discussed it-- she asked what they were voting on re metra. they never said what they were voting on. They then Told her they weren't voting on anything that night it was just in the agenda for discussion. She didn't say lets discuss metra. Glad to see someone came to a village meeting usually the same 4 people are there. Next time pay attention better.

This is getting very interesting. We need Instant Replay to sort this out.(Was she listening or not? Did she chortle or bumble? Did he really pick his nose?) Maybe we could have some sideline reporters too, to explain the action in the Board Room. Who are the four people at the meetings? Maybe they could explain the action to the viewers like Hawk and Steve.

My newsletter did not have Lynn Barkers picture. Gosh think about how many times she has run and lost trying to get her name on the newsletter.

This is worthy of starting a thread she asked a question at a meeting? Get a life. U can be a poor winner too. Get over yourselves. Sounds like she's still involved and concerned if she's still going to meetings. Again Get over yourselves.

I think its wrong for anyone to pick on anyone. If people are picking on Lynn, I'm sure it has everything to do with the fact that Lynn has been a bully for years. Lynn is a self absorbed political thug. For hundreds in the Ridge her loss was cause for celebration. Still I would like an end of the snark that takes place on this blog.

My god please tell Lynn Barker to stop going to the board meetings she keeps making really dumb statements. She always looks angry and frustrated with her hair. Her sister sits there looking down at her smart phone. Barker is flustered whenever the very friendly and attractive female trustees are speaking. Lynn makes awful noises out of her throat and nose. I'm tired of seeing her scratch herself and jerking her head around whenever someone walks past her. Something is wrong with her.Barker needs to accept the fact that the voters do not want her. They have defeated her twice. Lynn please leave us alone and stop being a mean bully. Thank you and have a good day.
