FIPHD (ECWd) -
In this video we talk about Ford County Board member Nuss with what may be some of the reasons he cannot see any wrong-doings at the FIPHD. Simple things like his future niece-in-law that works at the FIPHD - and babysits for Doug Corbett on the side - I'm sure he wouldn't want to upset that gravy train...We also talked about his statements saying he is "doing his constitutional duty" by being "innocent until proven guilty" - which IS NOT in the constitution...but it really makes a person wonder whether someone that was simply asked a question by a reporter has a guilty conscience by immediately invoking that statement instead of simply saying "no comment". We also played back his now famous quote of "I will answer to them [the board], I will not answer to you [voter in his district]." So there you have it folks, remember that statement during the next election - we will!
We also discussed Julie Clark's "Plaque for 25 years of service"(page 2 near the bottom) to the FIPHD. The problem is that the Illinois Municipal Retirement Fund (IMRF) replied to our FOIA request by stating she has less than 19 years of service ( IMRF Report-note that in 1988, 2000 and 2010 were not full years credit) Does this mean she has been drawing extra perks, vacation days, and sick days for the number of years that she doesn't qualify for? We will find out soon as we also know she worked for Manpower in the 1990's for about 18 months which would reduce her FIPHD time in service even more!.
