College of DuPage (ECWd) -
When a public body has to employ a propaganda machine...I mean a public relations firm, you know they have problems.
First, I ask you to watch this 20 second video of Dr. Breuder saying that the College of DuPage is the "epitome of transparency":
Next ask yourself that if what Breuder said was true, why are we having to sue the college in DuPage Circuit Court for access to the very public records he professes are open to the public? Things like his very own W-2, and the financial numbers used in slides his senior management team presented at the last couple of meetings. You know, the stuff that really matters.
Now, we have the COD attorney "explaining" that Res Publica, the P.R. Firm, will be used to "release information to the public...BUT...information also that is "balanced"". Really? What did he mean by "balanced"? Did he mean they would just make stuff up to counteract the public records we get a hold of? Will they withhold records from a requester so the information will be "balanced"?
Time will tell...
Any bets that the final price of this propaganda effort will come close to or actually exceed the price the State of Illinois wanted to conduct the audit?
