In public debates of spending, no one invokes Nazis unless they’re losing, or unless they have something to hide. 

Forced Disclosure Leads to Governance

Invoking Nazi Tyranny While Defending 

Spending Malfeasance
College of DuPage Trustee Dianne McGuire
Watch Dianne McGuire’s tirade here | Nov Board Meeting
Justifying the gifts, dinners, parties, alcohol and more, Trustee McGuire compared herself to revered German theologian Martin Niemoller & invoked Nazi tyranny while defending the COD President, senior managers, accountants and trustees.

 

Today, at the political blog Reboot-Illinois, McGuire’s tirade is exposed and much more…

Here’s a brief summary:

  • COD admits no meeting minutes exist that record board votes changing COD President Robert  Breuder’s contract. In Illinois, without public votes, such addendums are invalid. With the extensions and extra perks, Breuder’s contract is currently worth over $469,000.Dr. Breuder claims a contract until 2019 (page 6), but are all the contract addendums valid?Last Friday, Attorney General Lisa Madigan and Lake County States Attorney Michael Nerheim received  my Quo Warranto application seeking a review of Breuder’s employment contract and addendums.
  • COD has deep “conflicts” with board members of its supporting community foundation-  a total of $192 million in COD payments went to foundation board members since 2010. Many contracts circumvented competitive bidding and payments were hidden through “Imprest” accounting.
  • “Possible fraud” at the radio station-  learn why there’s a major concern.
  • COD touts an enrollment increase of six percent since 2008. But since 1998, enrollment is down by more than 5,000 students- even after COD spent more than $600 million on brick-and-mortar expansion.

    Its time to end this party at the College of Dupage.

    The Waterleaf hotel/restaurant was supposed to be an educational resource for students providing a working example of managing a hotel operation as well as culinary experience in the kitchen and dining room. The taxpayers were sold that lie. Now we know that students are not involved and the Waterleaf is an exclusive country club for the Board of Trustees and President Breuder who are receiving gourmet meals and lavish parties, all the while sticking it to the taxpayer.

    Three seats are up for election in April. Lets get rid of the baggage and elect some trustees who take seriously the financial accountability of the college.
