New Lenox School Board member comes under fire

Jan 18, 2013 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: The Herald-News

In an environment that Maureen Broderick likened to Nazi Germany, the New Lenox School Board member was publicly scolded last week over her role in removing a candidate from the election ballot.

Typical dirty tricks by the local GOP. If you can't beat them, stop people from voting for them.

Too bad Kathy Miller couldn't fill out her paperwork correctly. She's the one costing us money, not Maureen. And why old we pay for Kathy's appeal anyway? This is her choice- let her foot the bill.

Would an average taxpayer exercising his or her right to examine and object to a candidate's petition be attacked in this manner? If so, we are on a very slippery slope as a culture. Kathy Miller is at fault. She was lazy and sloppy with her paperwork and assumed she wouldn't be questioned.

And here's a piece of advise. If you feel there is a conflict with the board ruling, appeal WITHOUT the drama - deal with it like an adult! Disandro and pals could have handled this in a mature manner but instead turned it into political theater. Another repeat of what the community had to endure under the failed ledership of a past board president.

I agree with you 100%.... Part of the rules is filling the paper
correctly, Miller has to play by the rules like everybody else.
The School Board did the right thing. At least two of them did.

Why on God's green earth are we the taxpayers paying for Miller's appeal? She's sold enough insurance policies she should pay for it herself. If a regular citizen had been kicked off the ballot would we be paying the legal fees? What is wrong with this board? Do they suffer from some kind of mental impairment. Vote everyone off except MB and SS.

They are paying for the districr to be defended. Milller is appealing. MILLER hired her own lawyer out of pocket. The district is now in need of defense after two people made some careless decisions. So, perhaps that is who should GO. Oh so much more to come. Once the curtain falls who will MB blame next.

Ever since this lady became a board member many years ago, she has been the subject of controversy. Why? because she opens up discussions that the rest try to keep hidden. And yet "we the people" keep voting her in. Again why? My thought is that most of the intelligent voters of New Lenox realize, it's best to know all sides of any topic, even if we do not always agree with the view. After all, don't we learn more from someone with a different opinion than our own? If nothing else, it may validate our own thoughts more. So Maureen, even if I do not agree with all that you say or do, I thank you for having the strength to "go against" the majority and make us all think a little harder about the people we vote for (or against) to represent what we pay taxes for. You will once again have my vote

I'm seeing a pattern here. For the last several years, our school boards, not just the presidents have come out and called Maureen on the carpet on so many issues. She causes the political THEATRE, as you call it. If she would quit pulling Irish shenanigans like this, then board presidents and board members would not go to "The Theatre".

I'm seeing a pattern here, too. Make a public mockery of someone you don't agree with. Shame on all of you who took part in that. Why wasn't this done in private session? It's absolutely despicable that this was allowed to go on by the board president and Dr. Sass. It would have been one thing if the claim against Mrs. Miller was false but it wasn't. Just because you didn't like the outcome was no reason to treat two outstanding board members in such a disrespectful way. I remember how this board was run a couple of years ago and absolutely nothing has changed. A few new players, same game. So much for campaign promises. One thing I can say for Maureen Broderick and Sue Smith, they have always been respectful when speaking during board meetings. I'm sorry to say this board is no better than it was before. I hope the new candidates are watching carefully and are going to bring positive change if elected.

Kathy Miller was careless in completing her petition. Have an independent board review and rule on the petition inaccuracies, and then find some way to replace ALL board members immediately with chatty cathy dolls that repeat the word "no" to every expenditure administration wants, including raises and bonuses and stipends.

Maureen would not allow a private session in past years. It is against the Open Meetings Act. Maureen is being investigated again. A decade of legal problems she has caused. Notice how everyone is staying away from her now.

What? Maureen and Sue have been 'respectful' when speaking during board meetings? This is like children who behave in front of their parents then bully fellow humans. Come on. Take OFF THE BLINDERS. They are awful, spending, lawyer-hungry, board members. They ridicule others, they challenge nothing. They are useless. I know and pay attention.
