Will Co. (ECWd) -
The Lincoln-Way Area Taxpayers Unite group filed their First Amended Complaint in their efforts of stopping the closing of a school. Out of control spending for years has crippled the district. Numerous recent articles by us as well as the Chicago Tribune Southtown has exposed a laundry list of illegal spending. To date, law enforcement has done nothing, to include refusing to take a citizen's criminal complaint. (A few of those articles can be read by clicking here, here, here, and here)
It appears this group of citizens, with the help of their attorney, have laid out a very good case. We highlighted some of the key points that jumped out at us but please know there are plenty of other valid points we did not highlight.
My hats off to the citizens who stood up to the established and demanded transparency and accountability to their tax dollars. It's nice to see this filing make it to the courts this week, which is National Transparency week.
You can read or download the entire filing which includes the exhibits below.
