Bobby Wasko has retired as Fire Chief from the Summit Fire Department. Or could one say that he was forced out of that position. Why would he retire from a high paying job when he is a few years shy of his 20 years on with the Village? Well the answer is simple; why not just give him another position with the Village. The Village has offered him another position, Code Enforcement Officer. He will be in this position for a couple of years so he can get his full 20 years for his Pension.

The Village is planning on promoting Rich Gallaga. Can you believe that one? That is a total crock. As some of you may recall, he used to work for the Village of Summit many years ago as a police officer. Went to the police academy…But he could not pass the psychological test so they let him go.

Then he went to work for the Village of McCook as a Police Officer. However he decided to sell stolen goods with his brother-in-law Randy and he got caught. So instead of firing him, they allowed him to resign so it would not be on his record.

He is the Deputy Chief at the Fire Department and soon he will be the Chief. Can anyone guess how he is getting his position? Can you say Colleen!!! I guess it helps when you are “good friends”(wink wink) with a trustee.(Read between the sheets…oops – meant lines.)

How to get a job with the Village of Summit: Qualifications: Morally Corrupt. Thief. Fired from another Village or Sleep..oops, sorry, Friends with a Trustee. If you have any of these qualification – Apply for a job in Summit and you will get a great job, benefits and even a high ranking position.

How can you imply something you know nothing about. Even if what you are saying about past history is correct, people move forward and make good things happen in their lives. Qualifications in the present speak louder that mistakes of the past. I am sure you are not perfect.

In addition, just because one is good friends with someone does not imply one is sleeping with them. From what I know about Colleen she is a very hard working Trustee who generally cares about the town and is working hard to move the village foward.

It is obvious you know nothing about moving forward. If you look at the other "administrative" positions, you have a drunk who drives around in the "village vehicle" constantly on weekends and evening from bar to bar and nothing is ever done. His "high ranking" position within the political movement in Lyons Township, with Senator Landek. Yes he is connected to all the corruption going on. He makes deals under the table all the time.

YOu have a police chief that is a loser and knows nothing about his job. He has been caught in the woods with women who are not his wife, he has slept with dispatchers who work for Summit and yet remains in that position despite the efforts from other "board members".

So judging someone that has moved forward and made something of his life and moving the fire department in a direction that is being recognized for the good - is completely stupid on your part.

Interesting. BK is a two faced piece of ****. No way any Mayor around would put him as Chief. especially since he leaked information to media during 2005 election. He will suck anyone look what he does to current chief. No one respects him or current chief.

So what do you call yourself? A person who hides behind his computer screen uses a fake name and busts a guys balls. That is exactly what I thought a "two face piece of shi*".

99% is true; however, knowing the Trustee and family, being close friends with someone does not imply anything else. Families are close, I have seen. No one should have to defend a friendship with someone clearly having nothing to do with their life but be jealous over someone moving forward. It is ashame as these individuals have to work together and there is no trust. Let's see who is the better person when it comes to an emergency - who will show up. BK or new Chief! I am betting new Chief, never have had the opportunity to be assisted by BK. Too busy in office suckin'

The only reason the chief would show up is if bk was done sucking him and he wanted to go play police. What doesn't anyone do a full background check on this guy. Unless you and all sheep and believe what he tells you. He isn't qualified. Just because he says he has this degree or that degree doesn't mean he can do the job. I can read a book on heart surgery. Doesn't mean I can perform heart surgery

Let's clean house by getting rid of Joe, Bill Mundy, Chet. We all know Bill and Chet call all the shots and Joe is just sitting in his office. Get rid of Barney Five (Les) and put someone there that is a real Chief. Bill Mundy is a sneak cheat and the best thing he knows is drinking and driving around in Village car while drinking. Chet is a sneak.
