EDGAR CO., IL - (ECWd) -
After repeated requests for proof that disgraced former Edgar County Board Chairman, Chris Patrick, actually has insurance on his airplane stored in the t-hangar, and that the insurance names Edgar County as additionally insured for $1 million...the Airport Manager, Jerry Griffin, expects people to believe that he personally saw the insurance policy, but does not have a copy of it.
Keep in mind this is the same Jerry Griffin that lied on almost every part of his job application, to include lying about where he worked and the type of work he performed - but yet, somehow, this county board just simply believes him when he says his buddy showed him a copy of the insurance policy.

Here is the latest answer received from the FOIA request for a copy of the insurance policy:
"#2. It is my understanding that Jerry Griffin, Airport Manager, has visually verified the insurance for Chris Patrick's lease."
