AFPF Illinois Citizen Watchdog Training
Most Illinoisans pay more in property taxes to fund local government than they do in state income tax. As taxpayers, we have a right to expect that our tax dollars are spent in a legal and transparent manner. And as citizens, we have a right to honest government. Are you curious to know more about how local governments in your area are spending your money? Do you think there is waste or fraud in your local governments? Do you want to learn the tools necessary for uncovering improper spending in your communities? Join us on Saturday, May 26th for a free Citizen Watchdog Training!
Using publicly-available information and the state's Open Meetings and Freedom of Information Laws, with this training, you will learn how two gentlemen have made a huge difference in Illinois- and how you can too! Our Citizen Watchdog Training is geared towards individuals who are curious to know where there money's going. Citizen Watchdogs have used their skills to expose waste, fraud, abuse, and corruption in their hometowns. Over the last four years, more than 300 elected officials and bureaucrats have resigned or been removed from office because of the efforts of two individuals from rural Edgar County (along with the Indiana border 180 miles south of Chicago). These men merely seek to expose those who betray the public's confidence. In fact, their amateur sleuthing has triggered multiple local, state, and federal investigations. The training will equip you to know where to look, what to look for, and what questions to ask. And it’s free! we look forward to seeing you in Hoffman Estates on Saturday, May 26th!
