Team effort garners top 5!

Illinois – (ECWd)

A special thanks goes out to Reboot Illinois for their recent reporting on our investigative efforts in Ford and Iroquois County and by all indications the report was a hit.  (Their article here).

Our efforts garnered that story a top 5 spot as most popular items in the past week. Although the article gave us plenty of accolades, we could not have done it without key people of integrity stepping out of their comfort zone and standing up for what was right!  The real meaning of We The People is wrapped around the entire events that were exposed in that article.

A special thanks to the following because without this team effort, nothing gets fixed!

  • The whistle blower!
  • Will Brumlevee with the Paxton Record for great local reporting and additional investigative work
  • Rod Copas – Iroquois County Chairman for leading the charge
  • All other Iroquois County Board members who voted to fix things! 
  • The good citizens of both Ford and Iroquois County who came to the meetings and provided support for reform!
