KLEPT, FBI approached about Serpico and D209 [D209]

I heard a rumor that [name redacted] has been in contact with the FBI about Melrose Park Mayor Ron Serpico using inappropriate influence on D209 Board Member Gary Marine.

At the April meeting of the District 209 board of education, Marine had requested a motion be put on the agenda to terminate the services of Odelson & Sterk and replace the firm with Giglio & Del Galdo.

Marine is a Village of Melrose Park employee which gives Serpico many ways to give him carrot or stick.

If Serpico used inappropriate influence the case would seem to resemble the firing of Generso "Gino" Trombetta.

Trombetta sued District 209 and Serpico and prevailed by demonstrating Serpico used his influence over Board Member Dan Adams to get Trombetta fired. Devine's office failed to take criminal action citing a statute of limitations problem. Trombetta's supporters claim the statute of limitations hadn't passed and that State's Attorny Dick Devine merely did Serpico a favor.

The Melrose Park Police Department is currently under investigation for questionable practices related to hiring Chief of Police Vito Scavo's private security firm to work on the village water main replacement project.

If Scavo is indicted it is assumed that the feds will pressure him to testify against people above him in the food chain.

  • Ok, with Marine there might be a little connection, BUT SERPICO GAVE WELCH A WHOLE LOT OF MORE MONEY ON THE STATE REP AND THE NEW STUDENTS' FIRST CAMPAIGNS. I SEE SERPICO HAVING MORE INFLUENCE WITH WELCH MORE SO THAN MARINE. SERPICO HELPED SPONSOR BOTH WELCH's CAMPAIGNS. LOOK IT UP PEOPLE!

    Odelson and Sterk are being jerked around by Welch. He playing both attorney firms!

  • more signs than votes needs to let the welch anger go. gary marine works for the village of melrose park. his wife works for the village of melrose park. together, they bring in $80,000 a year. marine's brother-in-law pete urso is his boss in the public works department. his sister-in-law, jackie mcmillan, also works for melrose park. and you think "there might be a little connection." get a clue more signs than votes. gary marine is a bought and paid for puppet. look at his voting record in 209. he votes with flowers and kelly on everything except when it has something to do with melrose park. he never votes against melrose park because he is afraid he is will lose his job. the fbi should take a look at that as well.

  • Wow. Gary Marine should be ashamed of himself. Now I see why he put the attorneys for the Village of Melrose Park on the agenda. He had to do it or he would be out of a job. Gary...words of advice...when the feds come to your house, tell the truth.

  • Hey I am just reporting what Welch reported on his D-2's. SERPICO GAVE HIM ALOT OF MONEY $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

    Odelson and Sterk should know that Giglio and Del Galdo gave Welch money three days before the election! Welch is really lying to Odelson adn Sterk. He needs to come clean about the deals he has made with Giglio and Del Galdo. He is playing both attorneys, but worse he is playing and lying to the community. Can't just hold Marine under the bright light, Welch needs to be investigated by the FEDS also.

    Food for thought for bloggers.

  • more signs than votes let it go. Your detective work is awful. You want to suggest that going to the state campaign disclosure website and viewing a list of donations that were properly recorded for the world to see is evidence that welch would do something as stupid as getting rid of a qualifed school law firm for a firm of political hacks who will likely be indicted for their work in Melrose Park and Cicero. Come on. Let the anger over welch go at least on this issue. Gary Marine and Melrose Park are crooked, corrupt people. They are trying to take over 209 at all costs and by any means necessary. Well, I think Gary Marine, Serpico and Scavo are all going to jail real soon.

  • More Signs Than Votes, you might be right about who is going to jail, but Welch will probably be their cell mate. Of course my investigation is on a lower scale than the FEDS, and a blind man can see that WELCH is connected to Serpico and tied into this scandal.

    You implied that Welch would not fire Odelson and Sterk: "that welch would do something as stupid as getting rid of a qualifed school law firm." Well, I dunno know!
    Welch is known for doing stupid things and causing the district many law suits. He has messed of 88 and given them bad advice. Welch is not the smartest attoney, and that is why the Italian boys take advantage of him. He thinks he is a made man, but they just use and abuse him. This stupid act from Welch will just add to the list. It is about who gave him the most MONEY! It is all about MONEY AIN'T A DAMN THING FUNNY!
    $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

    Why would Welch all of sudden stop doing what Serpico orders him to do? HUMMMMMMMM? Doesn't sound right!
    $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$
    I believe it was Serpico, not Odelson and Sterk you gave him the most CASH. Who is your daddy, Chris?
    According to Chris it is Serpico.
    Welch you shouldn't hate the player but hate the game. Fess up brotha, you just got played.
