The deck of "CARD's" is full of Jokers....their lack of fiscal responsibility borders on criminal, the Board should be ousted and their Executive Director immediately terminated. A state/ferderal investigation would no doubt find official misconduct, fraud and abuse of taxpayer funds. Any community not wanting to be in the "Recreation District" should have the right or obligation to remove itself from such a tax funded boondoggle as the " Collinsville Area Recreation District " or CARD. What no poker tournaments for land acquistion ? How about a CARD Casino where everyone is sure to lose. Dump CARD now !!!

CARD Emergency Meeting 11/1/11 --- Well we lost the one on the Heating System, but it sure was great when J. Burke gave an abstain vote on the bond issue. A. Carruthers and D. Tanzyus did a fantastic job. A. Carruthers was fantastic in his battle with M.A. Bitzer. The look on Bitzer and Badasch's faces when the vote was over was unreal!Both Maryville and Collinsville need to disban CARD and the city's take control of the Parks.
