CHATHAM, IL. (ECWd) -
The Mayor of Chatham, Illinois, Thomas Gray - who is also an attorney (officer of the Courts), immediate past president of the Illinois Municipal League, and (recently retired) General Counsel to the Illinois Teachers' Retirement System, thought to act his unprofessional self and flip-off a citizen attending the Ethics Commission Hearing in which he stands alleged to have violated the Village Ethics Code.
Unprofessional of any sitting Mayor to act this way towards citizens, and especially at an Ethics Complaint Hearing in which the Mayor is defending himself from allegations of ethics violations.
It was reported to us that at tonight's Village of Chatham Council Meeting, the trustees stated they will place a demand for Mayor Gray's resignation on the agenda for the next village meeting.
