When Tim Allen ran for trustee in 2011, he didn’t bother mentioning to us what his plans were for our police department. We later learned that it was to eliminate and replace it with Sheriff deputies.

The plan was a boondoggle, as we all know, and went down in flaming defeat —thanks to Winfield United, The Winfield Register, Erik Spande, Dan Cronin, and 87% of the residents who voted it down last November.

The Winfield Deserves Better candidates will be meeting as many Winfield citizens as possible in the next two months. We will be holding informal meet-and-greets at the Dunkin Donuts on the southeast corner of Geneva and County Farm Roads every Saturday from 8 until 10 a.m. from now until the election. Come join us for a chat and some coffee! On Saturday February 16th we’ll be at Morgan’s at 6:30 p.m for another informal campaign event. We will also have at least two campaign town halls, more evening events, and many coffees in homes throughout Winfield. And expect to see us in your neighborhood as we canvass the entire village. Our web site WinfieldDeservesBetter.com will be up soon, as will our Facebook page.

Unfortunately, the Winfield Deserves Better candidates decline participation in the 2013 “Candidate’s Night” that is being organized by the Winfield Junior Women’s Club. There have been incidents and problems with impartiality on the part of the Junior’s leadership during past elections, and we cannot in […]

Village Attorney Tressler, LLP made a statement at the last Village Board meeting regarding the lawsuit brought against the Village by Trustees Tim Allen and Tony Reyes.

Of particular note are a few sentences:

The complaint contains a number of allegations that have not been ruled on by the Court, including alleging that the Village President “unilaterally and unlawfully adjourned the January 24, 2013 committee of the whole meeting”. Plaintiffs’ attorney conceded at the TRO hearing that Section 1-5-2A of the Village Code gives the President the right to unilaterally adjourn meetings.

The Court did NOT address any of the other allegations or requests for relief contained in the TRO. There have been statements made that the Village President “broke the law”.
