We had the cameras in Bolingbrook. Then 200 of us visited the Mayor on one day. And then the cameras were gone.

Think about it.

I will remind you to vote out the current mayors and others that put the auto red lights in our cities. Instead of finding ways of emptying the citizens final few dollars try to MANAGE our cities instead of raise reaching into our already empty pockets. I will not go away and will be every where I can near election day

Proven FACT: The red-lite cameras product many more rear end accidents with injuries. Maybe the ba$t ard tort lawyers bribed the local politicians
to install the equipment. Who benefits??? The tort lawyers and the local gummints which can now spend more $$$$$$$$$$

if u really wanna know how much they make do a freedom of information request on all the financial activity of those cameras and teh contract it has with that city. do it in email form...that is an official request also by law. name the email freedom of information request and direct it to the freedom of information officer of that town/city and they have a set amount of time to get it to you or they could be sued by law. but they will give it to you as they know most folks will just complain anyways and not do anything.

if u just create an email and a send an email to deborah mcillvain or whatever her name is. She sent me a copy of the contract. its that easy its not magic or a favor it is her job as the freedom of information officer and the city could be sued if she denied that. and you can ask for all the money those cameras made. and i've seen on some cameras up to almost 60 thousand dollars a month was made. you are ignorant...meaning u are ingnoring the information im providing.

u can't ask for all the money made literally but a copy of how much each camera made during the duration those cameras were placed at a certain intersection or all intersections. this is not hocus pocus this is the law.

A MESSAGE FROM THE ATTORNEY GENERAL
Open and honest government is the cornerstone of American democracy, and it can only
be achieved through the free exchange of information between the government and its citizens.
The Office of the Attorney General is committed to supporting and enforcing the
principle of open government embodied in two important laws: The Freedom of Information
Act (5 ILCS 140) and the Open Meetings Act (5 ILCS 120). Both are critical tools in shining
light on government action, and ultimately strengthening our democracy.
As Attorney General, I feel so strongly about the role these Acts play in our government,
that, for the first time in Illinois history, I have established the position of Public Access
Counselor within my office. The Public Access Counselor will take an active role in assuring
that public bodies understand the requirements of the laws and conduct their business openly and
that the public has access to the governmental information to which they are entitled.
The Freedom of Information Act is a pro-disclosure law embedded in the fundamental
principle that citizens have a right to access public documents of their government, while
balancing the government necessary ability to conduct the business of the people.
The purpose of this Guide to the Illinois Freedom of Information Act is intended to be a
helpful contribution in ensuring open and honest government in every corner of Illinois. The
Office of the Attorney General is pleased to offer this revised guide to foster accountability of
government to its citizens, which is the bedrock of a democratic society.
LISA MADIGAN
Attorney General
State of Illinois
