GOV, high school board violates Open Meetings Act [D209]

I decided to contact the Cook County State's Attorney, Dick Devine.
Dear State’s Attorney Richard A. Devine,

On Monday, February 20, 2006, the District 209 school board violated the Open Meetings Act by hiring a firm to conduct a superintendent search in closed session.

I attended the meeting and was denied my rights to observe the process under Illinois law.

Seth Stern wrote in Forest Park Review:

The decision to hire Bickert Group was made during a closed session meting, from which the board emerged to vote on the hiring without naming the firm or stating the amount it would be paid. The board heard presentations from Bickert Group and another similar firm during a closed session at its January meeting.

According to the Illinois Attorney General’s office, these meetings may have violated the Illinois Open Meetings Act.

Please investigate these apparent violations of the law and take appropriate corrective action. I further request to be informed of the corrective action you take.


  • Applicant denied three times a job at Proviso, was passed over to hire Welch's brother states:

    Proviso violates many laws. Carl, check out the many law suits and discrimination complaints Proviso has. Their human resource office is incompetent and ruled by Welch. The Human resource office is a joke Patrcia Imborgia is a liar and does not know the law. Hopefully, she will be served with papers soon. She is an idiot that covers up her dumbness by not being available.
    LOOK INTO THE LAW SUITS! You will discover more than you thought you could.

  • Pamela says: First of all, anonymus, Pat Imburgia is retiring at the end of this school year. That should make you and Crome Dome happy. Speaking of illegal...why is it that Proviso West is registering Latinos on the sly on Sat.? Why are they making kids who should be learning English register at East where there are no ESL classes? Will there soon be another State sanction like what happened in Elmwood Park? Is it true that Queen Wallace doesn't want the ESL classes at West?

  • Secretary from PMSA states:

    Good Imburgia needs to leave sooner. She is not helpful and never should have had that job. That entire office should be demolished!
