I didn’t attend the Connect Transit meeting last night, but I have reports from people who did.
Of course people spoke that rely on buses, but people also spoke about BUDGETING a $12,000,000 loss when the country and the State of Illinois both have no money.
One person who attended reported hearing reports of massive waste at Connect Transit. I spent about 1/2 hour pulling questionable spending reported in Board packets just since January 2016: http://www.connect-transit.com/about/trustees/packet.asp
See if you think Connect Transit is being fiscally responsible with your tax dollars. I could have pulled MANY more items, start with these:
Where are the trustees?
Where is the press?
Obviously they need some serious investigating!
