He is not worthy of holding any public service position, IMO, and these are just a few reasons why:

He used the school board president position to push the superintendent pay to absurd levels while he was getting his superintendent certificate. Hmm.

He made sure principals got hefty raises under a "plan" he voted on

He thought he and his village board were being slick (before an annoying state rule kicked in) to tell us the village administrator was going to retire, saving us money, and then he and the board were going to turn around and rehire him as a "consultant" doing the same job and paying him over $100,000

He spiked his cop salary $70,000.00 this year and then went on "disability" retirement

Yeah, real good guy. Typical Illinois politician.

I hear that the Chi Ridge pension board is being sued by their own members to stop this overly inflated pension from destroying their fund. I hope its true. This guy could still be doing an administrative job very easily. Again if he is so injured that he cannot do an office job, then how does he ever expect to work again. He was the Chief, not a patrol officer or tactical officer. Its people like this that give pensions a worse black eye than they already have. Thanks mayor for becoming the poster child for pension reforms.

Actions like this have put Illinois absolute worst in the country in unfunded pension liabilities. It's especially disgusting when these actions are done by elected officials, and then they double dip, going from government job to government job.

As I have said before. The average working police officer or fireman will never get this type of payoff. They work their years of service and then get their pension(which many want to stop). I believe that the people who do their job and make their contributions deserve to get their pensions(yes I am in a police pension fund). However its always the big shots, chiefs etc that you hear about abusing the funds like this at the end. And to take a disability pension at age 44 while working an administration postion in a police department, thats just ridiculous. there is already more than enough anti-pension sentiment. Nobody needed to see this type of crap happen.

Go to Chicago Tribune Watchdog - July 15 article about pension spiking at Chicago Ridge police dept.

Or simply google him and pension. Can't miss it.

Look, obviously to intelligent people, Tim is a liar, cheater and decietful.

Cheated on first wife, came to NL Republicans to gain support to run for Mayor, told a great story, was asked to run for Senate, took the campaign contributions then quit, ditched the Republicans, now he cheated/scammed to get a pension, on and on....

No way he can ever get Republican support again, I hope the Democrats see him as untrustworthy, he is done around here and he knows it. Bet you he will try to take Saas's job in a couple of years?

You sound very smart. Now I get it. Do you think he will run for mayor and if he does do you think he'll win again? If not then who do you suggest we support. I thought he was a good guy but you and a few others opened my eyes.

He will run again.

He will win in a landslide.

The voters of New lenox all in all are happy with the town. They will be happy with the tax rebate coming out in a couple months. Most people dont care what someone does in the their personal life. This is a non story and will only get people mentioning his name and talking about him. Win in a land slide.

I do not believe pols like him and Blago have much of a chance any more. They've become a laughing stock, an embarrassment, the poster children of all that is wrong in this state.

He'll try to get in the school district, but hopefully the residents will have wisesd up to that group, too, and get impartial, intelligent, fiscally responsible people voted in. That's probably why the supt. salary was bumped up so high while he was board president and why he got his supt. certificate. The Plan.

Just reading through this forum. Is there really a gun shop that opened up in New Lenox? If so, where? I used to shop at a place called Dads Gun shop in New Lenox. I thought they closed down.

Much the same way Sue Gillooley has openly and disgracefully cheated on her husband and her dumb ass is still sitting on the school board. However she is up for reelection this year, what about Balderman?

What fire did she fuel? I usually see all the meetings but I must of missed something. Annette isn't up this election is she? And I think it is a state law now that New Lenox has to follow. I don't think the village or Annette had anything to do with it being the law.

It is a joke that the people down in Springfield felt it was a good thing to have political signs up all over. I drive to plainfield every day from New Lenox. On the path, I see, friggin Kinzinger signs everywhere. Now the Debbie signs are popping up. When I get closer to Plainfield, it is all of their political BS signs. Enough is enough. Its not bad enough they are wrecking the county, now this???

As for Baldermann on disability, I dont think so, Can you collect disability and still get a paycheck from the Village of New Lenox for being Mayor?
