Jason Ervin caught doing political work during the day

Fox Chicago busted Maywood Village Manager Jason Ervin checking John Conteduca's nominating petitions during working hours. Conteduca is challenging incumbent Karen Yarbrough in the election for Proviso Township Democratic Committeeman. Karen Yarbrough is the wife of Henderson Yarbrough, Maywood's village president.
"If I'm doing something that's not affiliated with the Village of Maywood, I will take myself off the clock," Ervin said.

Ervin is salaried, so if he's not taking a vacation day, there's no functional difference between him being "on the clock" and "off the clock".

Topix has a discussion in progress.
