Pay should be based on performance Mr. Polit.
I got mentioned in the paper today. I do not support having foreign nationals taking jobs as police officers in the village of Mt. Prospect. A police officer has much power in society today. That person should be a American Citizen. Its the right thing to do.
Please help in getting John Dyslin over the top on April 7th. We have 2 more weekends before the election. He can use your help, and the weather should be nice. We need folks to help lit drop.
Also share this with folks in Mt. Prospect. With a huge field, and expected low turnout, getting folks to vote for John Dyslin can make a difference.
Congressman Bob Dold speaks on behalf of John Dyslin-
Congressman Dold recently spoke in support of John Dyslin's candidacy for Mt. Prospect Trustee. The congressman believes John will be an effective and hardworking trustee for the people and businesses of Mt. Prospect.
John is one of our Captains also in ROWT.
Vote John Dyslin on April 7, 2015
The budget is over 100 million/yr for MP. We are talking a 2.6% cut.
With MP spending over 600K for two people already, one who is out on FLMA, and we have no clue on whats going on, there is a place to start cutting, IMO.
Mount Prospect Braces For State Cut...
With Gov. Bruce Rauner proposing local municipalities give up half their yearly state income tax share in an effort to help reduce the state deficit, Mount Prospect would stand to lose approximately $2.6 million annually.
“It’s a significant amount,” Finance Director David Erb said.

That $2.6 million would equate to roughly 26 employees at $100,000 on average for salary and benefits for each individual.
According to Erb, the village would need to figure out a way to come up with that lost money either by increasing property taxes, finding another revenue source or making cuts to the budget.
Erb said the village is already at the “bare minimum” when it comes to staffing since reductions were made in 2010 for the 2011 budget. He said the village would be hard pressed to cut any more staff should they be on the hook for the $2.6 million.
“It’s still early and rather than getting folks concerned, let’s see first what happens in the legislature,” Erb said.
Erb said he probably would have a better idea on what the immediate future will look like by the time the village conducts its first quarter budget review Apr. 28.
“I imagine by then we will be in pretty good position for knowing what our needs will be for the remaining eight months of the year,” Erb said.
According to Erb, the village is developing a message to elected officials downstate that says the village cannot absorb that type of financial cut and it would be quite impactful to the village and its residents.
Currently, the village has about 25% of total expenditures on reserve, which equates to $11 million or three months of money on hand, Erb said.
“The last several budgets, we have used reserves and other funds to cover shortfalls,” Erb said.
Should state legislators approve reducing the local distributive fund to Mount Prospect and other communities, Erb doesn’t think this calendar year would be as affected financially as it would definitely be in 2016.
If Rauner's plan were to come to fruition, Erb said the village would first look at using reserves to make up for the shortfall, and then determine what other alternative revenue sources are available to help get by in conjunction with financial cuts.
“There wouldn't be one (option) without the other,” Erb said. “Right now, it is a wait-and-see approach because this all depends on the state legislators. For them, this $2.6 million is a drop in the bucket, but for us it’s 5% of our General Fund.”
This guy is in a lawsuit for his last gig. He did not do his job, did not honor FOIA requests, etc- That is why get got canned.
John Dyslin is who I support for trustee. We need new blood on the board.
Mount Prospect Trustee Candidates Weigh In On YOTI Settlement
About two dozen people came out to support our law enforcement officers in Palatine on a very cold Jan. 10. In addition to myself were Rep. Tom Morrison and former congressional candidate Larry Kaifesh.
We already had issues with lack of communication from our current board. We just recently paid out 8.8 million, plus legal fees over 1.5 million for the Rico lawsuit brought by Todd from YOTI. We do not need more of the same. That is why I support John Dyslin. http://patch.com/…/lawsuit-reveals-why-lincolnwood-sd-74-te…
