On July 1, 2019, an Ethics Complaint was filed naming Clerk Kristin Thirion alleging she made false statements under oath on her 2019 annual Financial Disclosure Statement. The matter is now pending investigation by the Village’s assigned Independent Counsel. Initially upon taking office in 2017, Thirion started a policy of publishing Ethics Complaints on the Village web site. That ended after she, Trustee Glotz and various senior staff members were named in Complaints in late 2017. It all seemed rather “sporting” when the political opposition was the subject of investigation, but “transparency” was the loser once Thirion became the subject of investigation. “Full transparency”, as she always touts, would make you think you would be able to find the filing on the Village web site. We doubt that will happen, but we’ll wait and see.
