Proviso Probe

Joe Burdi alleged to have violated contracting rules in District 88

Someone sent a letter alleging that District 88 Transportation Director Joe Burdi and perhaps others engaged in malfeasance. See Proviso Herald (David Pollard). (Burdi is also a village trustee in Stone Park.)
The letter alleges that Burdi on numerous occasions last year had work done in the district costing more than $10,000 without obtaining quotes for the work or board approval. It also alleges the bills were paid without board approval, which violates school code and school board policy. He was interim director of building and grounds for the school district in 2006 and 2007, when the alleged violations took place.

Proviso Herald (David Pollard) had a second article giving Burdi's defense.
Joe Burdi said a letter sent to county and federal attorney offices alleging he steered School District 88 business to friends and political associates and authorized work without board approval is all political.

  • Why don't they just fir him? Why send a letter to the state's attorney,when you can fir him. This is political and it seems to me that Chris Welch is behind this!
    Eventhough Burdi is a midget creep,who thinks he is Joe Pesci,he does what he wants because Benny Mazzulla controls district 88 along with Pasqaule!
    Maybe Burdi can get another job with Mazzulla's assitance or with Mazo's and Cogliniese's assistance!

  • Is'nt Chris Welch the attorney for district 88? If he is,then why are they doing this to Burdi?Is there a falling out between Welch and Moore with Mazzulla and Pasqaule?

    Burdi saying that this is politics makes me wonder,did,nt he get hired because of his politics?Was Burdi even qualified to get this job?
    This could'nt have happened to a nicer guy!
