After 5 1/2-year ban, Tom Dagley allowed back on IDOT property –


Illinois Department of Transportation has issued a letter to Tom Dagley stating that his more than 5 1/2 – year ban on entering or being on all IDOT property is no longer in effect.

It is unclear what caused his ban from entering these facilities, but we do know that it is due to the way he treated employees of IDOT at the time.

The redactions on pages 2 and 3 of the below pdf were identified as having details of his harassment of an individual there:

(c) private information, specifically, information regarding the harassment of an individual that a reasonable person would object to being released to the public.

On February 3, 2010, IDOT issued him a letter informing him he could not enter onto IDOT property or into IDOT buildings.

This lasted until they sent a follow-up letter on September 30, 2015 telling him the 2010 letter was no longer in effect and informing him that while on IDOT property he “shall be courteous to others and not engage in disruptive behavior, horseplay, interrupting work, or impeding the work effort of others.”

I have petitioned the Attorney General’s Public Access Counselor to obtain unredacted documents.

  1. You guys are way too dramatic. You can’t get the whole story just by digging through FOIA records trying to figure out what happened. It didn’t work for this instance and I’m wondering how many other of your stories are just your interpretation of FOIA records. Tom called the HR lady a bitch…that’s it. That’s what got him banned. Sorry if I ruined the mystery.
