Letter writer Richard Skillings has St. Clair County Board Chairman Mark Kern and MidAmerica Airport Director Tim Cantwell pegged to a T.
The lengths of secrecy and back-door shenanigans that these two people have enacted on the tax-paying public amounts to nothing more than legalized theft. If this were the wild, wild West, these two men would be tarred, feathered and strung from a tree.
Until Kern is unseated, the county will be forever doomed with wasteful spending, high unemployment, corrupt school districts, overpaid airport directors, cronyism, nepotism and a courthouse infested with drug users and drunks.
Cook County doesn't hold a candle to St. Clair County when it comes to corruption.
