Comptroller’s office finally tells the truth

By: Diane Benjamin

More on these two stories:

As I stated in one of the stories above, government employees would rather talk to me over the phone instead of in writing. That eliminates the paper trail, the email below proves it:

Hmmm… Don’t know why your email never made it to me or the local government division. Feel free to give me a call at 312-835-3317 and I’ll get the department director on the line and we’ll try to answer your questions. -Abdon

I didn’t call, a simply responded asking why 2023 data isn’t available for either Bloomington or Normal when the landing page for both have 2023 information.

This was the response:

They have not filed it yet

I then asked if both were past due since Normal’s year end was 3/31/23 and Bloomington’s was 4/30/23.

I received a ONE WORD response:


Both Bloomington and Normal have released last year’s financial statements. There is no excuse for not submitting that information to the Comptroller’s office. They are the ones hiding data. The Comptroller’s office is evidently doing nothing to force compliance. Your “public servants” hard at work.

Isn’t Illinois great?

  1. “Public Servants,” is a term no longer applicable. The feel, “Entitled,” to a paycheck from the taxpayer. They’re not qualified because they don’t have to be. As long as they’re leftist progressive marxist democrats that is all that is required. As long as they’re willing to do as they’re told, no matter how reckless, they keep receiving a paycheck for an unnecessary job and title. And as usual, the taxpayers are stuck with the bills for their deliberate malfeasance. Oh and they positively HATE accountability or responsibility.

    1. At least with those elected the public has a say in their job performance every few years and they are seldom overpaid.

      The hired help ‘professional staff’ are the most prolific leaches – with a sense of entitlement so great they even feel like they can wag the dog even though they are the tail.

  2. how every single county and state dept is handling contacts and communications and complaints – unfortunately (should be illegal) and not good practice but common – CRM (customer relationship management) systems and process at their worst
