Proviso Probe

Sunday, July 20, 2008

D209 paid his legal bills, what's to stop Welch from having district pay to settle case against him?

Question for District 209 Superintendent Nettie Collins-Hart and the Proviso Township High Schools board of education: if District 209 paid the legal bills for Emanuel "Chris" Welch in the case of Odelson, Sterk and Odelson & Sterk vs. Proviso Insider (Welch and Emily Robinson), what's to keep Welch from buying-off Odelson & Sterk with a big settlement and sticking it to the D209 taxpayers?

Should we have confidence that the D209 board members will protect us from wasting taxpayer money this way?

Has anyone explained to Collins-Hart how the board paid a $500,000 judgment against Melrose Park Village President Ron Serpico with taxpayer money?

Who will stop the inappropriate diversion of taxes paid for education to bailing Welch out for his own bad behavior? The Cook County State's Attorney?

  • Whoa there big boy. Are you jumping the gun a little bit here Carl? You're assuming there's going to be a settlement or judgment against Welch. It seems awfully premature when we don't know anything about this case. Also, what if Welch gets a judgment against you? What if he gets one against Odelson and Sterk and his old employer? I think you're trying to scare taxpayers cause you have something against Welch. You might have a larger following Carl if you stop defaming the guy.

  • Carl can you explain in detail how Proviso paid Serpico's bills? Where did the funds come from? The District or insurance? Who recommended the payment? Who was board president when that case occurred? Wasn't it Theresa Kelly?

  • Carl I don't think you know Welch or Odelson and Sterk. That case will never settle. That case will go all the way to trial and those guys will destroy each other with all the dirt they are going to throw on each other. They are all to stubborn to settle for anything less. Watch and see!

  • I have a question for ole' Nettie. When will she get rid of the principals? She must start at West and definitely clean house at East. The three stoogees at East are not cutting the mustard, Pacth, Jonhson & Johnson. I hope she not only makes the board start being accountable, but it must also begin with the Principals!

  • Carl, you just gave Welch a great idea. Of course, Welch will try to settle with Oldosen and Sterck and have 209 pay the settlement!
    The new super will go along to keep her job,just as Libbka did.The board of course will do as their told!!!
    Welch will do or get away with as much as he can,because the Cook County State Attorney's office will do nothing,as usual!
    The Question is, What can Charles Flowers do? What can Yarbrough do?
    I bet neither Flowers or Yarbrough will do nothing ,as usual!

  • The more this situation is discussed in public, the better the chances the district doesn't pay. Will the insurance carrier determine that the case does not fit the parameters of their liability? Has the insurance carrier even been notified? Not to worry, legal settlements take precedence over mundane things such as teacher salaries.
