Rep. Batinick Reaction to Newly Exposed COD Waste

In reaction to today’s Chicago Tribune report, Rep. Mark Batinick (R-Plainfield), who just last month sought to advance a package of legislation aimed squarely at a $750K severance buyout that left local taxpayers reeling, had this to say about the new revelations that College of DuPage administrators spent hundreds of thousands on taxpayer-funded outings at the high-end publicly-owned restaurant on the campus of the College of DuPage:   “I think once people read these new revelations, there will be a renewed call for an electoral remedy for the college board members who allowed this to happen.  There should be resignations, but short of that, voters should have the right to recall these officials.”
