In an attempt to collect information through FOIA from East St. Louis District 189, we sent five FOIA requests on Jan. 8 and nine FOIA requests on Jan. 15. We have yet to receive our information and/or a denial of request. Obviously District 189 chooses to defy state law and thumb their noses at taxpayers seeking information. Their unwillingness to cooperate shows their arrogance to the taxpaying citizen. Our committee has turned the matter over to the Illinois Attorney General’s office. I am sure this is no surprise to anyone considering their past performance of running the district into the ground.
