(video) College of DuPage – “Breuder Board” vs. “Reform Board” – Part IV – Dedicated to Trustee McGuire

By Kirk Allen & John Kraft

On January 4, 2016

DuPage Co. (ECWd) –

As we wind down this series outlining the importance of understanding what the ‘Breuder Board’ means vs. the ‘Reform Board’, we felt College of DuPage Trustee Dianne McGuire deserved a dedicated exposure of her games.

The pattern of misrepresentations and out right lies by Dianne McGuire is well established and documented.  The bottom line appears to be she simply is opposed to anything the ‘Reform Board” has done or is trying to do.

Are her actions nothing more than a personal vendetta?

From day one she has insisted the law firms should be fired because of her perceived conflict of interest, yet she was silent about the past law firm’s conflicts.  Her problem is that the firms hired won’t rubber stamp wrong doing as it appears the past firms did.  In short, no more free food and booze and vacations on the backs of the taxpayer!

In her efforts  to create her own crisis at COD she has filed multiple ARDC complaints citing conflicts and by all indications every complaint was rejected, yet she has refused to tell the public that outcome.  We told her in this article, put up or shut up.

Once those complaints failed, now her problem is the cost of the firms.  Interesting how she had no problem when Erin Birt illegally hired Res Publica PR firm without any board approval.  She also sat silent when almost $300,000.00 was spent, according to the Chicago Tribune, in just over a month.  How is it that similar spending by the ‘Reform Board”, mostly on matters pertaining to criminal investigations by the FBI and US Attorney’s office, is out of control, but clearly OK when the “Breuder Board” did it?

Again we must ask, are her actions nothing more than a personal vendetta?

From baseless drama at the meetings to cry-baby tattling to the Higher Learning Commission, COD trustee McGuire is clearly unhinged.  She is an embarrassment to the College and the political party she claims to represent.  She needs to resign, just as the Chicago Tribune called for her to do a long time ago!

With a COD Trustee Meeting coming up on the 7th of January, 2016, we urge everyone to attend and bring a friend and be prepared to provide your opinions on any matter COD related!  Citizen outcry is the only thing that will help the voter mandated ‘Reform Board”

    A Parody

    The announcement several weeks ago of Dianne McGuire’s nomination for the 2015 Goebbels Prize for her ‘Nazi Speech’ at the College of DuPage also cited her entire body of work there and was met with much enthusiasm by her supporters. The annual Goebbels Prize is named for Paul Joseph Goebbels, the Third Reich Minister of Propaganda during the Nazi era in Germany and is a relatively new international award recognizing a politician’s high achievements in the practice of venality, duplicity and Chicago Style Politics. The winner is announced every April First. In years past the award ceremony and free dinner and drinks (at taxpayer’s expense) was held at the Waterfall Restaurant. This year it will be held at the White Castle on Roosevelt Rd. in Lombard, Illinois.

    The Goebbels Prize should not be confused with the Goebbels Awards
    which are given yearly for duplicitous practices in journalism.

    In the past few days there have been rumors of an impending announcement on Thursday, January 7, 2016, in Glen Ellyn, Illinois. Many, but not all, readers of this website will be familiar with high honors for human achievement acknowledged and recognized by the awarding of the Pulitzer Prize for journalism, the Nobel Peace Prize and the Stanley Cup in hockey to name a few examples.

    The rumors are that a new, national recognition award in the field of on-line journalism exposing corruption at all levels of government will be announced. The McGuire Prize for spiteful and destructive rhetoric will be funded in perpetuity from a trust set up by past board members of the College of DuPage Foundation, former no-bid COD vendors and the Robert Breuder Charitable Trust. The McGuire Prize will be named after Dianne McGuire and given annually to the on-line journalist or team of journalists who are best able to speak and write spiteful and destructive rhetoric in response to vitriolic and untrue accusations while being 100% truthful in everything they publish during the
    previous 12 months.

    Another rumor heard yesterday is that Ken Burns is considering writing and producing for Public Television a documentary about the Breuder era at the College of DuPage with the working title of “Livin’ Large in Glen Ellyn.”

    I thought you just said that the Edgar County Watchdogs won’t report “hearsay” (which is defined as rumors) in any posted comments here? This comment below is an example of you doing exactly just that. It’s a contradiction in what you say and actually do here. Please consider acting consistently with everyone in your actions or you may appear a certain way to our audience here. Thank you. Have a nice day.

      Um, the first two words of the comment you are referencing are: “A parody”…
