Lincoln-Way D210 – Ron Sawin retirement effective April 30, 2016

By Kirk Allen & John Kraft

On March 23, 2016

Will Co. (ECWd) –

Tonight’s School Board meeting reflected Ron Sawin is officially retired April 30, 2016

When the lights are turned on in a place that has gone dark for some time, the cockroaches scurry. It appears to be the same when the people demand accountability of their public servants.

Clicking this link will give you an example of the light that got turned on at Lincoln-Way District 210 and specifically exposed questionable actions by Ron Sawin, now the former Assistant Superintendent.

Sawin makes the third person to flee at Lincoln-Way D210 since the spotlight got turned on a few months ago.  One board member who happens to be an Assistant US Attorney saw the writing on the wall and removed himself from what we suspect would have become a conflict of interest with his job, and the former Board President who was basically flying blind at his post and got exposed.

The citizens in this community are doing what many more need to do. They are holding their local officials accountable by exposing all the wrongdoing that is impacting every taxpayer in the district.

    WOW CR!!! I THANK these gentleman for having the guts to expose what others won’t. Lincoln Way School District has made too many mistakes to look the other way but you want to bury your head in the sand-you must live on the West side of the District. Closing a much needed school on the East side of the district is not going to benefit anyone in this school district, least of all the students who are now going to be in an overcrowded school. ISBE NEVER told the school board they had to close a school-that was pure propaganda! I only hope that these gentleman expose all of the health risks are kids are going to be and are being exposed to by keeping the oldest school in the district open. I also hope they investigate and publish the number of students, current houses, families, TRUE growth expectations from one side of the district to the other, tax dollars (where they come from) and show that by closing NORTH you are ruining the lives of so many more students than if a school in New Lenox would have been closed – IF a school had to be closed. Lincoln Way School District 210 in the Enron of school districts. Too bad someone didn’t do for Enron what these men are trying to do for School District 210.

    I like another comment I saw on this story somewhere…” in the private sector this guy would be fired… In Illinois he gets to retire with a publicly funded pension!” ECW- what else have you learned about that coach living on LWW property… we’ve been told his late-model Cadillac is still in the driveway.

    Talk about falling asleep at the switch. What a nightmare he has been part of.
    negligence, incompetence, and distrust. Good riddance.
