PARIS, IL. (ECWd) -
According to time sheet provided pursuant to the Freedom of Information Act, Mrs. Bridgette Borries-Pierson, District 5 PD / CADD Unit, worked between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 2:37 p.m. on December 14, 2015, without clocking out for lunch.
My FOIA request was clear, I wanted to know the hours she worked, to include any break time:
At 1:19 p.m. she called our phone from her cell phone and did not leave a message.
At 1:28 she called my cell phone and engaged in a conversation about an article I wrote, which included a letter from IAHE to its members.
From the documentation provided by IDOT, it appears she conducted personal and/or IAHE business on State time by making the phone calls while being on the clock. The unfortunate part of this entire ordeal is that the original article was intended to show people taking the right path and stopping the use of public property to conduct other-than-public business, but instead resulted in her getting snippy over the phone AFTER I already gladly said I would redact the contact information from the letter that was posted in the article.
