Orland Park Library Director, Mary Weimar, Lies to Trustees –

By John Kraft & Kirk Allen

On July 27, 2014


Orland Park Public Library Director, Mary Ann Weimar, lied to the Board of Trustees about “never taking paid time off” during a public meeting. Mary Weimar is the wife of the former Oak Forest administrative judge and current Alsip village prosecutor who thinks his badge gives him special privileges (read about it here).

One of the stupidest lies that was ever told during the OPPL-BoT meetings happened at the meeting on 6/16/14, when Library Director Mary Weimar made the bizarre assertion that she never takes days off. This was during a portion of the meeting when Weimar was on the ropes trying to justify why she’s paid nearly $200,000 while the Library is on course to lose $500,000 by this time next year and run in the red.

Weimar claimed to the Board that she never, ever takes PTO days, but Board Member Cathy Lebert didn’t believe her and pressed her on this, to make sure that she heard Mary Weimar correctly…and, again, Weimar asserted that she never, ever took PTO days and that she was at the Library at least 6 days a week doing various things.

This sounded like baloney, so a FOIA was submitted for Mary Weimar’s PTO records from 2013 to the present…and sure enough she takes PTO time all the time! So, she lied to the Board (again!) when she claimed she never takes PTO time. What the heck are all of these PTO slips for (that were approved by “SR”, Scott Remmenga, the Business Manager)? If Weimar is not taking her PTO time then someone is signing her name to these and Scott Remmenga is also involved in this fraud. That’s highly unlikely. More likely is that Mary Weimar just flat-out lied to the Board about whether she takes PTO time or not. It’s such a stupid lie, though. Why say something like this when it’s so easy to prove her wrong?

Here is just one of the many documents stating she took PTO, or paid time off. Last December alone she took 12 days.

      Seems important to me. Why is a public employee lying about such stupid stuff? Makes you wonder what else she’s lying about.

    Did you mean to say shes the “husband of…” or maybe you meant wife. Or is she a transgender? Just saying?

    Now that its established that Mrs. Weimar is an official liar, the statements she makes to the board or regarding any official business should be inspected and reviewed. When she chose to lie, she identifies herself as an untrustworthy person. I just read a story about satanists who prey on children in pubic places like libraries using porn and drugs, etc.

    I hope she’s not bench warming some pew in a church up there somewhere….she’s the kind of person that gives the church a bad name. (go to church on Sunday and live like the devil the rest of the week). Given the seriousness of what’s going on up there…these people just sound evil.

    The buck toothed ferret-faced liar is a lot more ugly on the inside…and that’s hard to believe . The amount of tyranny we have is the exact amount we tolerate. I think Edmund Burke said that.
