College of DuPage – States Attorney responds – The system is working

By Kirk Allen & John Kraft

On January 12, 2016

DuPage Co. (ECWd)

We called for citizens to take action and ask the Dupage County States Attorney to investigate a possible Open Meetings Act violation at the College of DuPage in this article only two days ago.

We have been informed that the DuPage States Attorney Bob Berlin has responded to those requests for investigating possible action that was taken in a closed session on March 6th, 2014.  It is our understanding a request for closed session records has been made by his office that requested not only the March 6th, 2014 closed session recordings but also the February 20th, 2014 closed session.

The fact an additional month has been requested may indicate that the officials at COD have in fact reviewed the information and found issues that point to a previous meeting.

We are confident that the paper trail and those recordings will in fact prove action was taken in a closed session to extend Robert Breuder’s contract.  Such action would be illegal and can be reversed by the courts and possibly by COD with a vote to void such action taken in violation of the law.

We want to thank the States Attorney’s office and Mr. Berlin for hearing the people and taking the steps needed to investigate.  Upon completion of this investigation we suspect one of two things will happen.  No action, or prosecution, of which we pray it is prosecution as nothing short of that is going to send the message that such violations will not be tolerated.

Let this chain of events be a signal to the citizens that the system does work provided you have become a part of it and not simply a spectator.  Your government is just that, it’s yours and when you dont actively participate you end up with chaos, which COD has been a fine example of.

    Good luck! I hope the States Attorney is not just blowing smoke up your butt like most do obviously…lol. I suspect no charges will be filed, and if they are it will result in lenient sentence based on a “plea deal” resulting from back room deals with the Good ‘Ole Boys network and lawyers getting paid as usual..Not significant consequences for these violations to deter others from considering doing the same. Expecting justice from a rigged system, a publicly corrupt system as we know, is a fantasy not reality. But I hope I’m wrong. Have a nice day.
