Kansas, IL. (ECWd) –

The village of Kansas, IL. recently hired John Clough as its Police Chief.

During his interview, we understand he claimed the previous articles and allegations against him were all political and there was nothing to them – we would bet he never admitted to the village board during the interview that the Governor’s office verified all of it prior to his termination from the Prisoner Review Board.

During the hiring process, he was initially “hired” outside a proper public meeting with a 4:2 vote and without the item being placed on a village meeting agenda. After communicating with the village president, Clough was properly hired at a later meeting by placing the item on the agenda and the village trustees voting on it (advice and consent).  We understand his hiring was done without any job application being provided.

We had previously written about John Clough after he was appointed to the Illinois Prisoner Review Board by Governor Rauner – read about it below:
