Now if the FP Board would stop setting the wrong example for the employees by entering into no-bid contracts themselves and then taking political contributions from those same firms we could learn from this error in miss-management. Then we can move on to addressing the salary, free family health benefits and a pension all for a part time job of being a Board member. What about the Presidentís salary and car benefits that he said he would address almost a year ago. While we are addressing reform, letís take those taxpayer paid political signs down in the forest preserve with the president's name on them....let's start doing what is right.

The Commissioners and President of the Forest Preserve District of DuPage County must be held accountable for their failure to safeguard our tax dollars. When I attend meetings I don't hear many questions if any while many millions of our taxes are spent and sent to companies that are awarded single bid contracts. We need a full investigation and accounting of why these companies get the millions without a competing bid. Get more info at www.protecturforestpreserves.org
