Bev Church – Blamed others in resignation, refutes responsibility –

By John Kraft & Kirk Allen

On December 27, 2014


It is obvious by the language used in the resignation (read it here) that she has learned absolutely nothing.

— First, she says she was glad to serve “my Ward” – but the reality is that she has no Ward in the City of Marshall.

— Next, she claims she was encouraged and advised that a “rushed and inadvertent execution of a homestead document” would not negate her “factual residency in my Ward“. Those statements are completely false and show her contempt of the law and of the voters of that Ward.  “Homestead documents” are not “rushed and inadvertent” when used for three consecutive years (read them here and here)  to obtain a real estate tax discount on her actual factual residency – not within the Ward she claims she somehow lives in.

As for her “factual residency”, she was asked by a person about using the restroom in her antique shop, and she replied that the restrooms did not work, and she had to go to the laundry-mat to use the restroom. When asked about the upstairs portion of the building, Church stated that it was under construction, soon to be open to the public, and that she was excited about opening it. So I must ask: how can you live in a place with no working restroom and under construction, soon to be open to the public? Why is her car not there at nights? I think you know the answer – I mean, even Herman Wallace and Tim Sanders know the correct answer.

— Finally, she calls it “petty strife”, when her own actions were what caused the lawsuit, and her own actions caused the other hard feelings between the aldermen. She once again refuses to acknowledge the fact that she does not live in the Ward. She will have to live with that failure, but at least a fellow Alderman, Tim Sanders, knew and let everyone else know what the truth actually was.

When a person cannot accept responsibility for their own actions, they have learned nothing while thumbing their nose at the law.

    This is another example of public corruption with no accountability in Illinois that cost the people of Illinois LOTS of money and causes more PUBLIC TRUST EROSION of the foundations that our government agencies are based on, public trust is the foundation of all government agencies. Eventually if left unchecked, it will ultimately collapse our government agencies from our town halls to our Statehouse. Get informed. Get involved NOW! Please.

    It doesn’t cost the public servants personally who commit these crimes or are involved in wrongdoing personally. We should DEMAND personal responsibility of these public servants and We the People should be able to sue them personally, and they should not be allowed to use our tax money to hire lawyers to protect them in civil lawsuits. Our legislature should enact new laws that allow us, We the People to sue these corrupt public servants PERSONALLY and hit them where it counts, IN THEIR WALLETS, in suing them personally in state and federal civil lawsuits against them personally. I understand John and Kirk are pushing law makers to change our laws concerning this very thing. I would just like to thank them publicly for that. Keep up the fight for us We the People. Thank you!

    She has had the building under construction for the last eight years!!! She was having it worked on. When they owned the restaurant..I have found that she likes to stretch the truth about a lot of things
