“We have scheduled an important meeting with you at 2pm tomorrow regarding ethics and other matters. Please come to the Law Department on the 9th floor at 1 North Dearborn. Thank you.”
Unfortunately I didn’t receive the email on time because I took a sick day on Tuesday to take care of my son who had a minor surgery scheduled that day. I therefore could not attend a meeting that I didn’t know about. Based on the last minute email-only notification, it appears this was the result CPS officials were hoping for.
Again, since we don’t know what the alleged violations are, I believe ANY EFFORTS TO SUPPORT MY CASE SHOULD FOCUS ON FORCING CPS TO TELL ME WHAT THEY’RE CHARGING ME WITH. After they reveal the charges people can then decide what next steps need to be taken.
There is still quite a bit to be told about what happened on Wednesday. The corruption behind CPS’s actions that day was readily apparent. I intend to write about it soon. In the meantime, my attorney wants me to spend some time with him preparing our case. I’ll have a statement ready once that work is done.
Finally, my message is that we need to stay focused on the corrupt fiscal management and incompetent education policy of our district and our city. That’s what I’ve tried to highlight. This is not about me. This is about corruption, and I am an obstacle to that corruption. At some point I’m hoping all of us will be obstacles to it.
