GOV, violation of Open Meetings Act? [D88]

Today at 5:30, the District 88 school board will meet. This is the delayed meeting separate from the regular meeting that was scheduled for Monday. Various people suspect Dr. Willie Mack will be fired at today's meeting.

According to the Open Meetings Act, the agenda is supposed to be available 48 hours in advance of the meeting. Here's what the executive session agenda says:
Consider... Superintendent benefits

I'm not a lawyer, but if the intent is to have a debate about terminating the chief executive the language "superintendent benefits" is too vague to fulfill the requirements of the Open Meetings Act.

Remember, District 88 has already been warned about violating the Open Meetings Act.

If the ARDC, the professional body for disciplining attorneys, had any teeth, Emanuel Christopher Welch, the board attorney, would be more worried about being disciplined for non-compliance with the Open Meetings Act. But I guess it's like pro wrestling. You're only breaking the law if the people enforcing the law do their part.

  • Welch has again stooped to an all time low. He has replaced Mack with a former superintendent that did nothing in Maywood. Welch is so desperate to win state rep he will make anyone his bed partner. I wonder what Welch will recieve for making this favor. Welch once despised Conglanese and Baxter, but now he is taking orders from them. I can't figure this one out. Maybe the FEDS can!
