Iroquois Co. (ECWd) -
As one who believes things happen for a reason, today's mail once again provides evidence to support that belief. When I opened my mailbox this was on top of the pile and immediately I knew the reason we received it, Larry Hasbargen!
For those not familiar with Larry Hasbargen, he is an Iroquois County Board Member who got a little worked up at the last Emergency Telephone System Board when John Kraft let him know he was not the one who gives permission for public comment. The video is worth viewing below. In light of the clear anger and rage built up in this particular County Board member, we felt obligated to make an offer in hopes of ensuring others are not subject to such verbal abuse.
We will pay for Hasbargen's registration to a conference on Dealing with Difficult People. He will learn strategies, tips and techniques for fighting frustrations in the workplace, and he can keep the workbook for future reference to what he learned, or what we hope he learns.
If this Board Member wants to take us up on this offer all he has to do is send us an email and copy that email to the County Chairman. The conference is held May 15th, 2017 in Urbana.
