Since everyone is tearing up Front St and Daves Auto and the other businesses down there we might as well ask Trustee Engler about receiving a "FREE BOOTH"while acting as the Market Manager for the French Market and at the same time being a sitting Village Trustee who is not allowed to receive additional compensation. Taking a free booth is not allowed especially from a business ( Bensidoon Inc ) who was using our municipal lot and employees providing services to them and Trustee Engler voting on the whole thing. When Bensidoon wanted to pay Trustee Engler by check and it would be more obvious and documented she QUIT as Market Manager. Lots of questions to ask here ??????

Well as far as you have stated I say YES.
but I am sure the crooks all see it different.
It always OK for them but never for anybody else.
that is the main reason people get into politics t any level. Clout, cronyism, a little bit f power and influence, Siwnski is another perfect example.

Will county is just a little CROOK county.

Lets ask Trustee Engler to explain the situation or just have the States Attorney look into her actions ? Easy enough to get to the truth !

Do it! That way everyone will see nothing was done wrong way before the 2015 election. Engler and Richmond all the way in 2015. Labriola GONE in 2015.

As a past Chamber Member I also want her to explain the embezzlement cover-up from 2007,08,09 ! Lots to look at and I could care less about 2015 election I'm talking about actions our elected officials took and why it was never questioned. I'm a business owner in town and I have rules and laws to follow so should she .

There are many questions surrounding both issues.
Are you willing to ask some of them at the next village meeting?

And get attacked personally on this sight and in town ? No Way ! I've seen the level of viscious attacks on here , and now their going after a long established business on Front St. and the owners who have fought hard for years to keep Front St. alive. Business is bad enough here in Mokena and I cannot afford to be " condemned " for asking questions that are already evident to these officials. I'm going to send a very detailed letter to the States Attorney's Office about both incidents asking for a look see !

You did not state what she had at her booth that was supposedly free. Why bring it up now. I know Debbie and she's as straight as can be.

She did not pay a fee for the space her booth occupied as every other vendor had to do. You then consider the fact as a sitting Trustee she voted on employee's being used to support the French Market Company and free electricity and water and you have a direct conflict . Plus it is illegal for a Trustee to receive any additional compensation during a term and she received the " Quid Pro Quo " ( free space ). Should have consulted a lawyer , and as an official she should know better and now she should address it !

Vince ? I would say let's have the authorities look at the violation and decide if indeed Trustee Engler broke any Laws and with this out there let the Honorable Trustee initiate the look see ! Also , what did Jim Giglio do a decade ago ? The articles you posted show 2003 .We're there any charges or legal ramifications or was it just a unethical reporter trying to sell more rags ?

Ok you have a lot to say. Here is a way to get all of your answers. Put your big boy/girl pants on. This seems to bother you a tremendously. So go to a village board meeting and present all of your facts. After all it is really bothering you and YOU need to do your civic duty and bring this to light with the proper authorities. Posting on Topix does not count. Or go to the Will County States Attorney and present all of your evidence. If you dont want to do this shut the f$uck up.

And do it now, but oh I forgot, you will wait til right before the 2015 election and try to derail Engler's campaign. Won't work. If Debbie chooses to run for reelection in 2015 she will prevail!

I don't know anything about this woman. What I do know is Quid Pro Quo
is a gutless wonder who is busting someone's balls all the while hiding behind a computer screen in anonymity trying to get someone else to do his alleged dirty work. It is time for him/her to step up or shut up.The constant whining has gotten old.
Honest mistake

hey we all make honest mistakes.
Some of us are just lucky enough not to be in public office so when it happens to us we aren't breaking the law.
didn't you ever get something for nothing or for a little favor down the road.
Golly gee if you don't thinks what you are doing is wrong , then is it?
If you ignorant of the laws you don't have to abide by them do you?

so there were a few mistakes down at city hall.
so what, it's all good.

they are nice people and that trumps everything else. Right?

Not Giglio but I'm in the know , why don't we ask the Honorable Trustee to disclose the information about the free booth while she was voting on bills and other related items and see if it is indeed a legal issue ? When Bensidoon Inc. tried to change the arrangement and pay her with a check she realized it would be to obvious and would be exposed so she quit as the Market Manager . It's is also a concern if she was involved with the Chamber Embezzlement Cover-Up , heard 3 current members of our Village Board hand a hand in it ? Time will tell !

Yes but he/she is not on here complaining like you. It is gut check time for you. Bring your information of wrong doing forward. Present all of your information to the proper authorities. What are you waiting for? Why have you not present your complainant to the proper authorities? If you had you would have stated that previously. Do your civic duty. If you dont you are just as bad as the perpetrator.

You really don't have a clue, do you? You're just trying to stir the pot but there's nothing there to stir. You just can't stand the thought that the current board is doing a good job. As for the chamber, when did you attend your last chamber meeting to bring this up? Crawl back in your hole.
