Double dipping is holding two full time positions that can't possibly both be satisfied.
You fail to mention the Assessor that hired extra staff because her other publicly funded position in Glen Carbon doesn't allow time to fulfill her duties here, herself.
What about THAT huge budget increase, with the accompanying pensions? THAT is double dipping.
Also the former (rotten) police chief who has done another rotten job as a township trustee for the last 4 years, that now wants us to believe he'll suddenly do a better job as our Highway Commissioner? He's seeking more pension funds, too. THAT is double dipping.
Don and Mel are guilty of nepotism--but then, so was Helen when the Supervisor hired her granddaughter, and so is Randy V. with his daughter working there. (And it's cronyism that his favorite "hair cutter" works there, too.)
I AM against anybody working there that doesn't actually live in the township. Which of our present employees would that be?
So, what's your point, and mine? Don and Mel aren't doing anything that isn't already being done, and are doing a very good job with our money compared to the rest of the township folks that are presently running things.
And, Don's good efforts for us taxpayers won't be easily sabotaged by those who would have him unseated for their own personal gain. She has his back.
