Illinois State Senator Dan Duffy (R-26th District, Lake Barrington) was recently interviewed for an article in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. The article below describes nepotism in the Illinois state government. The watchdog questions that since this is happening on the federal and state levels, could this be happening on the local level in Naperville.
Why do candidates run for office in the Naperville city council? Why are decisions made to spend millions of dollars for dubious projects? Why are decisions made that make absolutely no sense to those who are directly affected by those decisions? Who benefits from those ‘makes-no-sense’ decisions? The classic line from the 1976 movie “All the Presidents men” might be part of the answer to some of those questions…. “Follow the money.”
