Brian Cross appointed to board of education, District 209


Brian Cross has confirmed that he was appointed to the board of education of Proviso Township High Schools (District 209) to fill the position previously held by Charles Flowers, EdD. (There are probably Flowers allies who would argue the seat isn't vacant because the board of education doesn't have the authority to remove an elected board member.)

Like board member Reatha "Sue" Henry, Cross is a full-time employee of Cook County Recorder of Deeds Eugene Moore. Moore is the political boss that influences who gets hired (and fired) at District 209. And until recently Moore was the "broker of record" for the district.

As the broker of record Moore made $18,000. See Forest Park Review (Josh Adams). Recently the contract was changed to Bateast Insurance Group. See Proviso Herald (Chuck Fieldman). Bateast is connected to Moore and one of the bosses pulling Moore's strings, Rev. Claude Porter who runs PLCCA, a social service agency.

Cross is an inappropriate person to appoint to the board of education because he has no independence whatsoever. He will vote the ways he's been told to vote or he will lose his job with the Recorder of Deeds.

  • This is disgusting!

    Brian Cross has done nothing for the people of proviso. He has no accomplishments and absolutly no ambition! The most he will ever be is Eugene Moore's shoe shine boy.

    Looks like Brian Cross needs to stick to anonymous voice over's.

  • I wrote a comment on the "other" blog regarding the total lack of any prior involvement of Mr. Cross t be a school board member and his callow support of patronage politics. Well, guess what, it never got past the censor, who might very well be Brian himself. There was no sweraing or some of the other stupid stuff i see from some bloggers on both side of the chasm so it had to be censorship. How sad since that other blog boasts that it is impartial. I would respect it more if it said this is the official blog of Gene Moore, Chris Welch, Brian Cross, etc and, we promote our own interpretation of events. That jis much more honest. Oh well, nothing is new in the insidious political arena called Proviso politics.
