Political games

Posted5/4/2018 1:00 AM

In the April 23 Daily Herald, a story of the new tollway chief was written. I do not know how stupid Chairman Robert Schillerstrom thinks the people of DuPage County are but to say we have to pay Elizabeth Gorman $29,000 more than the last executive director because you have to pay for quality, then she should not have been hired in the first place. If she does a better job than the last person, then you give her a raise. $215,000 a year is a good start for a person to get to find out if she really is qualified or not. Just because some politician said she was, let her prove herself first.

Then the article states other politicians and what they are paid of which they are all part of Gov. Bruce Rauner's group. Why do we not just say we put these people in because they are connected to the governor and we are paying them this much and if you don't like it, too bad and be done with it?
