Why do the watchdogs take it out on the tax payers for something we have no control over? Filing a lawsuit against the electoral board will mean we have to pay for lawyer, maybe lawyers and court costs. As a tax payer I dont appreciate any of this. Its becoming chronic and the bill keeps growing. I don't know why they would file a lawsuit against a new board like that...they don't even offer to help fix problems...they are just attacking and making us pay for it.

Go to the circuit clerks office and read the suit. They did ask and offer help, it was denied, twice. Their only remedy left was the suit.

You really are stupid.

You don't know why but you run your mouth anyway? Shut your stupid pie hole and go find out first and when you find out, grab your popcorn and porno and go bitch to someone that cares.

Suit is an expensive "I told ya so" for edgar county residents...no if ands or buts. Arguing that this isn't petty says it all...

I have a hard time understanding why there are so many individuals who are complacent and wear their hats down over there eyes and ears. Job standards and/or laws are guidelines for proper procedures, they are required because so many individuals have non existent morals and no work ethic…I don’t like some of the BS and paperwork required for my position….BUT…I dot every i and cross every t. Then again I’m old fashion and believe in the Golden Rule,& that the boss (law) may not always be right but it’s still the law (boss) I was also lucky enough to be raised to always do my best the first time…and there is no such thing as a failure IF YOU LEARN from you mistakes… Seem your area provide exuberant amounts of opportunity to learn…Keep up the good work ECWD…

It appears that every one of the current county board members looks pretty stupid and uninformed. They elect a brand new person that has just been voted onto the board as their chairmen when that person has knowingly sold product to the county in the past and will in the future for major projects.

If the Watchdogs didn't point out this conflict of interest, someone else would have. Shouldn't one or all of them had thought about this before hand?

My sources tell me Illinois is the most corrupt state in the good ol' US of A. Now, living in Cali, which has had some of the most corrupt politicians in the history of our illustrious nation, that says something. So, perhaps this low-level corruption does not raise an eyebrow in Illinois.

@ Mgmt-----What in the hell does that remark mean? I'm not thankful for what appears to be uninformed representation for my tax dollars but obviously, you are.

Watchdogs operate their site and information distribution under the the protection of the 1st amendment. They have to do this because their articles are largely opinion. If they operated as a real news source they would have to comply with different rules, which could includes fact backing and retractions and so forth. If they could operate that way, their allegations would bear much greater weight...but they remain using opinion pieces that fall under free speech...which means their stories don't have to be completely accurate, but they still can be put on the website...

WOO you show your ignorance quite well. Go read the law and when your done come back and tell the truth. They fall under the very same laws as any newspaper or news media outlet, which also are protected by the 1st amendment!

You just cant stand the fact it wasn't your idea and your not getting any recognition for the success they are having.

I heard today that at least 10 different subscribers have cancelled their subscription recent because of the news paper not reporting the truth. They turned to the watchdogs and got the truth, to include video! No opinions when you can watch the real thing!

GO WATCHDOGS!

They aren't done beating this dead horse either...the watchdogs plan on going on with their suit against the electoral board...as well as appealing the disputed petitions...I love how they use tax payer money as if it were theirs. Edgar County is so lucky to have them...
