I’m beginning to think a Sandack type of overhaul of SB99’s Ethics and Nepotism Policies may be in order. As you may recall, Current Mayor Ron Sandack ran with overhauling and tightening village ethics a platform issue, and upon election immediately wasted no time fulfilling that pledge to voters. One part: no more campaign contributions from people or groups that do business above a certain level with the village. It reflected aspects of ethics legislation the state General Assembly pursued in response to Blago’s (and Ryan’s) abuse of power. That hasn’t had any deleterious effects here so far, and doesn’t look like it ever will. If anything, some local companies have sighed relief they are barred from having to play that game.
Here are the sheets of the current Nepotism Policy for SB99. This is not the policy for the District, this is for the School Board.
The District 99 Nepotism Policy was changed in January to keep track with changes made to the School Board Policy.
I could not get these to post right at DGreport.
