Open meetings act violations filed against the College of DuPage board.  http://edgarcountywatchdogs.com/2014/08/o...

 

…and from a few years ago

 

The Academic Bill of Rights (ABOR) which calls for an academic environment where decisions are made irrespective of one’s personal political or religious beliefs, was passed by to COD board in April 2009 and rescinded by the new board in May 2009.  Kim Savage and Nancy Svoboda who were new to that board voted to rescind and are up for election in 2015. New that year and voting to rescind, but no longer on the board is Sandy Kim. And new in 2009, still on the board, but not voting to rescind is Allison O’Donnell. Why is this important?  Because, we need good fiscally responsible people who do not condone indoctrination to run for COD board.
