Proviso D209 newsletter

Of course, it's propaganda, but this quote amused me.

District 209 CEO Robert Libka received a five-minute uninterrupted standing ovation during the event from the more than 500 guests present.


Did Libka just pull some drowning student out of the Des Plaines River? Jackson may not have been a great superintendent, but he wasn't hated.

If Libka got a five-minute standing "O", I'll bet Chris Welch led the cheers and was glaring at people to keep them standing.

A five-minute standing "O" for a school superintendent is more Stalinist than ringing endorsement.

  • What did Libka do,create the Magnet School? Libka is a stooge from Gene Moore ,Rev. Porter and for Chris Welch! A funny thing is happening in 209, I bet that when Bruno gets indicted, the other board members at 209 will drop Welch like a hot potato, and vote against him and Moore! Libka's days are numbered!

  • However good or bad a job that Bob Libka does, know this, he is no stooge for any person. I have known Bob Libka for 20 years and he is personally uncorruptible and totally dedicated to being a good educator! I doubt, before he became superindentent, if he had ever met Moore or Porter or any other of the folks, some rightly and some wrongly, who get lumped in this crowd. And this comes from one who always signs his real name and has consistently opposed this Moore and "gang" ever since I saw their true colors a few years back. Gary Woll

  • Is it true that 209 is starting a gay and lesbian group for there students?

  • Gary Woll has been a trustee in the Village of Maywood for over twenty years. Since his time on the board, Maywood has been in a steady decline. Gary Woll has supported idiots like Joe Freelon, Jim Parelli, Gene Moore, and now Henderson "Karen" Yarborough. Gary, do us all a favor and move out of town. Once that's done, Maywood will see improvement.

  • I do not want to go back and forth when it is not the main issue but I never supported Jimmie Parrilli, when he got elected Mayor, I won on a oppsing ticket and we NEVER got along during his four years. I supported Gene Moore one time for Committeeman because I hoped he would be at least a little bit better than the Taddeo's and other "corrupt" politicians who seem to be endemic in Proviso politicla history. I have absolutely no apologies for supporting Joe Freelon, Don Williams, Karen and now Henderson Yarbrough but I also recognize that, like me, none of us, in and out of politics, are saints. Some of us try a little harder to do the "right" thing and for the "right" reasons. Now let's get back to the issues rather than the personalities that this website so succinctly raises!!!

  • I just wrote the 9:30 commentary and I have no idea how it came up anonymous.

  • I have not always agreed with Gary Woll but I know for sure, there is not a harder worker for Maywood than this under appreciated, supportive, involved public servant. He is the model for what a public official should strive to be.
    Perfect, no but trying to do the right thing, for the right reasons. Absolutely.
    Sometimes when you belong to and believe in a process and want it to work; you hang on to continue to support it hoping for the best. Gary's exit from Moore's organization was long overdue. They treated him like shit. (can I say that here?)
    There continues to be much hate, back-biting and underminding in his camp (I was there---I know)

  • Gary Woll you are absoulutely right in your comments. I believe you are a man of intergrity, but your friend Libka is like a deer caught in headlights. He has no idea what he has gotten himself into. He is not qualified for the job and you know that Chirs Welch and Moore are taking advantage of his "dumbness" or his naiveness. Libka needs to go into to rehab and be detoxed of Moore's and Welch's brainwashing. If Libka is so smart why can't he see what they are doing to him. If he is such a great man, why did he back stab Jackson. He is a modern day Judas, but he knows that because he a devout Lutheran. Gary Woll please come to District 209 meetings so you could see for yourself the lies Libka tells at the meetings. Libka is not what you think. I will be posting under X-clan2. Keep in touch.

  • I'm praying for Mr. Libka. My advice, pack your bags and get the hell out!!!!

    I don't know him [Libka]personally, but he seems a man of integrity. Gary's golden - I take his word on Libka's character.

    To you bloggers unfamiliar with the "pack"-- The lure-in is not as obvious as you may think.

    If I had to choose a movie to describe the mess that Libka's knee deep in, I recommend that you pick a Blockbuster weekend and rent " Devil's Advocate.

  • There are complete! Libka is the official third member of the
    3 Stooges. (Libka, Moore, & Welch)
    Hey Stooges, Check out what's happening to the Daley and Ryan camps. Are you Stooges next?

  • Doesn't Libka remind you of SPONGEBOB SQUAREPANTS?

  • When are these 209 meetings, I would like to attend one of those myself. I'm really against a hardrock and a shell, in reference to I support. I believe in Welch sometimes but I'm not liking what I'm beginning to hear.

  • D209 meetings are the third Monday of the month if Welch can get all his votes there.
