Hail, Hail,the Gang’s All Here

Or should we say “Well, Well, the Gang’s All Here”?

The typical cast of characters seem to be connecting in such a happy way with others of like minds. Is this a sign of things to come? Are we seeing the beginning of a political power house (I joke)? Did they find a new person to follow, or has it always been this way?

On the 17th of June 2016 a fund raiser was held at the 4 Points by Sheraton Chicago O’Hare. It was posted as “A Fundraising Event for Mayor Barbara Piltaver” – Loosely translated it means ~ the early start of the next campaign season.

This event has brought the return of someone we have not heard from in a while, and a few that finally just left after many months of not fulfilling elected duties. Although many have made guesses that Patricia Godziszewski would return this election cycle no one knows for sure, now thanks to KGK we have a little more information pointing in that direction. I do not have confirmation that Kathie Janis was in attendance, even if she was I am starting to believe we will be seeing more of her as we get closer to the voting booths.

Things are very soon going to start getting interesting.

A few Days ago a blog post on another now private and very libelous blog stated that majority members of the School Board of School District 81 were attempting to force David C Stachura, and John Kowalski from their positions. The reason given was that the Board majority didn’t like the questions David Stachura and John Kowalski were asking.

For those of you who have watched the recorded School Board meetings you will already know that John Kowalski doesn’t speak at all, let alone ask questions. David Stachura rarely speaks in coherent complete sentences. On the few occasions when he has, the subjects his own shared blog claims the board is trying to silence have never come up. (Meeting videos found here)

Two of the items the original post claims David Stachura and John Kowalski were not being allowed to question are transparency, and the budget. Now knowing that they have never questioned the School Board on those two subjects during any public meeting I have observed I could only assume he has questioned the School Board or the District staff through Email. With that assumption I submitted a F.O.I.A. And received the following response.

“The district has no documents responsive to your request”

I picked the date of the election as the starting point because it is a very important date to many. It should mark the date that Mr David C Stachura at a minimum started keeping his word to the tax paying voters of Schiller Park, and part of Franklin Park. He walked on behalf of Patricia Godziszewski spreading their word and sharing all the things they will accomplish in defense of the tax payers of School District 81. When in fact since that date he hardly attends Board meetings, or walks out early because he can not answer questions asked of him.

Not one single email or public record of any questions or concerns as far as transparency, the district’s budget, or staff issues. The original post on the previously mentioned Stachura/McCampbell blog is particularly funny to many because David Stachura is not known for being open and transparent when it comes to the School Board. When asked questions he walks out. If he even thinks the citizens in attendance of a meeting have questions he doesn’t show, or even votes against replacing the second public participation he removed when he became president.

All of these points are because he has lied to everyone from the beginning, and has not one concern for the tax payers of School District 81.  Neither does John Kowalski who was nothing more then a semi-warm body filling an empty space on an election ticket. He has contributed zero to this district and will continue to do so.

The dark cloud that has hung over this fine school system for a few years now has a name. A few names actually, and two of the biggest ones are David Stchura, Patricia Godziszewski, and Roy F McCampbell. Remember those names and remember their connections, and friendships when making choices in the next election.

Lack of commitment

Yesterday I asked the audience members of the evenings Schiller Park School District 81 School Board Meeting to pay attention to a few things. Attitudes of a small few members (David, and John) to the others, new faces in the audience (Irene and her troops), the town harasser  (Roy) and his mini-meetings with Patricia Godziszewski. It’s hard to do any of that though when the individuals in question are not present. This is in fact not a bad thing, but it speaks to the larger issue.

Since I can not attend every meeting I normally have to wait on videos, and meeting minutes for information, but last night was not the norm. I received enough descriptions of the evenings events to form an accurate image for the purpose of a blog post.

Some of the main conspirators were in fact absent at last nights School Board Meeting. Almost the entire cast of characters. From the destructive, to the antagonistic. Only the Indicted ex government official living off the tax payer buck attended. No doubt to gather information for his libelous blog.

John Kowalski = Absent

David Stachura = Absent

Patricia Godziszewski = Absent (Maybe she is moving on to new chapters in her life?)

Roy F McCampbell = Present

Even the magnanimous Irene Del Guidice and her rumored posse were reportedly absent from sight.

When people are committed to a cause they drive forward through thick and thin to work towards their final goal no matter the resistance. Their end goal like David and Patricia’s is not always an honest or positive one, but they still fight on. That is a simple description of people who are committed to a goal. A description that does not describe the above individuals, or maybe the combined absences was all part of the plan sending McCampbell only to keep an eye on everyone. If so David Stachura, and John Kowalski decided to make another political statement in defense of their personal agendas, and disregarding the tenants of their oath to the community and its children.

Dave Stachura, John Kowalski, Patricia Godziszewski are not committed People whether their absences last night was planned or not. They are not committed to anything from what we can tell, and they are continuously stepping out on their oath in the name of personal comfort. So many times in the last few years they have chosen to simply not show up when they might be on the hook for some answers or could be put in a compromising position that they may not have been able to properly prepare for. The letter written by David, and Patricia is one good example, with back and forth abscesses from the two for months following the letters release. Another example would be David Stachura walking out of the last regular meeting because he was being asked questions.

On July 17th and 18th the School Board held an annual retreat. Topics included the following

  1. Financial Projections
  2. Review/Refine SD81 Goals, Board Practices, and Communications
  3. Management Resources Services/Team Building

Sounds a little important right? Guess who was reported to not be in attendance either day? You guessed it David C Stachura, and John Kowalski. I have not submitted the F.O.I.A. to verify this yet, but when I do I am confident it will prove to be true. 

How Committed to the children of Schiller Park is David Stachura, and John Kowalski? If you look at their record of attendance, and actions at board meetings the answer presents itself as a resounding not at all. If you add Patricia Godziszewski’s history with School District 81 you would find a trio of the most uncommitted individuals ever to grace the District. A School District of over 1300 children that are nothing more then a game of political chess to these individuals.

Respect

image

Respect = Something that David Stachura, Patricia Godziszewski, Roy F McCampbell, and Irene Del Guidice refuse to show you.

At tonight’s Schiller Park School District 81 School Board meeting I am asking everyone in attendance to watch the body language of David Stachura, and John Kowalski. Observe their interactions with the community, and fellow board members. Listen closely to their questions (if they have any), and observe their reactions, and interactions with their fellow School Board members.

If you are sitting in the audience look behind you from time to time, and observe the activities of Roy F McCampbell, and Patricia Godziszewski (probably sitting with each other as they did last meeting). Maybe stop and ask them what they could be talking about so intently, and maybe do what he does every meeting and snap a few photos of them. If they complain let them know it’s for public safety.

Take a look for new faces in the audience and introduce yourself. Show new attendees that those in the audience are honest caring people not “Jihadists”. Show them that you are all people who care about what’s going on with your schools. Explain that you care about the truth, and that stopping the destruction of this fine District, and consequently Schiller Park is a top priority.

Let the authors (most of them will likely be in attendance this evening) know what you think of their new blog. Tell David Stachura, and Roy McCampbell how disgusting what hey are doing is. Let them know that you know who they are, and you have had it with their lies, and deceit.

Let the new members of the audience know that you will not allow your School Board meetings to be a political show for David Stachura, Patricia Godziszewski, Roy F McCampbell, and very possibly Irene Del Guidice. Show the town your respect and passion for the system that is put in place to protect your children, and your tax contribution from the above listed interlopers. Explain he TRUTH to them even if for the 100th time.

David Stachura, Patricia Godziszewski, Roy F McCampbell, and their followers need to be shown that you will not go away, and you will not relinquish the safety of your children’s future to their one sided motivations. They need to be told, but with some of what they refuse to show everyone else, respect.

Defend your rights, but don’t give them an ounce of ammunition.

A tremendous waste of time

image

The search for awards Pat Godziszewski may or may not have received started out as a post I intended to be a little humorous while making a point. People can brag all day about what they have done or the schooling they have taken but in the end the recognition of others is a better gauge for someone’s abilities then their own words.

I honestly expected to find something, I mean how many people can work for 20 years or more and never receive an award from anyone. The more I think about the situation I realize it’s not very humorous at all, and I have also come to the conclusion that looking for examples of excellence in the career of Patricia Godziszewski has been a tremendous waste of time. With all of her years as a teacher I honestly could not find even one example or proof of her abilities as a teacher.

Before I concluded my search for any commendations given Patricia Godziszewski I submitted a F.O.I.A. request to Leyden School District 212 for any records they may have of awards Patricia Godziszewski received during her 21 years as a teacher in District 212. My thought process was that most employers keep a file on their employees, and if that employer has awarded the employee anything it often goes into that file. Additionally there is times when an employer may keep a record of an award given an employee from an outside source. Since the employee in question works for a public organization some of those records would be public knowledge, and therefore subject to public request.

the results of the F.O.I.A. Are attached below

Some key points that bring me to my final conclusion.

Patricia Godziszewski has some higher education that should benefit her as a teacher, but does she use it? From the stories of people I have spoken with no.

Patricia Godziszewski has spent some time volunteering in the community, but for what reason? For the betterment of her surroundings, or herself?  A good portion of that time was spent on the School Board of School District 81, but what did she accomplish during that time? She helped raise the legal fees of the district more than any other person for starters. Pat Godziszewski only comes in second overall when you include other community members, specifically Roy F McCampbell, with his contributions to the Destruction of Schiller Park, and with David Stachura coming in at third. Hundreds of thousands in taxpayer funds waisted on power trips, micromanaging, and focusing on one family instead of supporting the entire staff and community.

Patricia Godziszewski through her continued abuse of the administration helped bring morale to an all time low, and significantly helped bring about the resignations of a record number of staff of District 81. The effects of those resignations will be felt by your children for years.

Patricia Godziszewski has spent more time trying to make the administration and staff look bad then she ever spent trying to help them do their job. Through her micromanaging of the superintendent to the belittling of the school’s teachers through accusatory letters and misguided attacks she has done more damage than good.

Patricia Godziszewski has described community members as “Jihadists” in one letter written to Schiller Parks People and Places news paper. In another letter written by her and David Stachura to the district’s lawyer she defended the actions of one bad seed resident over the good work of hundreds of staff.

Patricia Godziszewski makes over $140,000 a year as a science teacher at West Leyden with a master’s degree, but
she did not vote for the last teacher contract because she did not understand the contract. It was her job to understand, and she was continually unprepared.

Patricia Godziszewski is currently a teacher at the West Leyden high school. A point she uses often to gain some sort of respect with the community she is deceiving in an effort to gain sympathy to regain her seat on the District 81 School Board. Patricia Godziszewski and David Stachura distract people from the truth with lies and half-truths with no concern as to the effects it will have on the communities children.

Being a teacher is a noble profession one of the most noble in my opinion, but as in all professions there is bad examples. It has always been my opinion that Patricia Gidziszewski is the baddest of apples when it comes to teachers, and it’s time the community stops allowing her to guide the education of children in any capacity.

Continuing the search

We ain’t found #%^*

Day two of my efforts to find examples of excellence in Patricia Godziszewski’s 21 year career as an educator.

During my second day trying I combed the Internet for the previously mentioned examples. In an attempt to increase the odds of finding something I used 13 search engines. Some are foreign language, some are multilingual, and some strictly English. I wanted to be complete in my efforts.
– Baidu Chinese, Japanese …… Nothing found.
– Bing, Multilingual …… Nothing found.
– DuckDuckGo, Multilingual …… Nothing found.
– Exalead, Multilingual …… Nothing found.
– Gigablast, English …… Nothing found.
– Google, Multilingual …… Nothing found.
– Munax, Multilingual …… Nothing found.
– Qwant, Multilingual …… Nothing found.
– Sogou, Chinese …… Nothing found.
– Soso.com, Chinese …… Nothing found.
– Yahoo! Multilingual …… Nothing found.
– Yandex, Multilingual …… Nothing found.
– Youdao, Chinese …… Nothing found.

In Patricia Godziszewski’s 21 year career as an educator I have come up with nothing, zero, zilch, zip, nil, nought, nada. Not one example of a quality educator. I have however heard many complaints, and listened to many stories that to me are just scary. I encourage everyone to ask around. It won’t take long to hear what I have.

Stop letting Parricia Gidziszewski, David Stachura, and Roy McCampbell continue to pretend they know what’s best for this School District, and it’s children. Stop letting their vile influence continue to affect the future of your children. Let them know that their continued efforts to undermine the system will no longer be tolerated!

I will give one more try to find something. More to come on the subject, and again please share anything you as a reader might know.

Excellence In Education, Not Tainted By Political Influences?

newspapersalesman

The topic of a recent post on another blog:

Support Pat Godzezewski’s Advocacy for Excellence In Education Not Tainted By Political Influences In Schiller Park School District 81

Now after I was able to catch my breath that was lost during all the knee slapping laughter from reading that statement I decided to look into it further.

We all know the basics in regard to Patricia Godziszewski. She rarely if ever made a decision that benefitted education or the improvement or advancement of the schools in Schiller Park. She participated repeatedly in efforts to undermine the work being done by others working for the betterment of education for the children in Schiller Park. Raised legal expenditures significantly through her and David Stchura’s unending defense of one family. Almost single handedly caused the resignations of dozens of teachers and staff (with the assistance of David Stachura). I could go on all day but instead I’ll include some links to the high points of her time on the Schiller Park District 81 School Board.

https://jamesjtompson.wordpress.com/tag/patricia-godziszewski/

Back to the above quote. “Support Pat Godzezewski’s Advocacy for Excellence In Education Not Tainted By Political Influences In Schiller Park School District 81”

I honestly couldn’t find any examples of Excellence in education. Not one single example of excellence, and by her own words in her recent letter to People and Places news paper she described herself as a veteran teacher at Leyden High School. Shouldn’t I be able to find one example of excellence from “A veteran” high school teacher? Especially a teacher that is being paid over 100,000 per year. (Details found here Godziszewski Pay Verification FY15 (2), here Godziszewski Pay Verification FY14 (1), and here Compensation-PGodziszewski) With that sort of compensation shouldn’t we as taxpayers, and those of you who have students attending the Leyden High School system expect more? I for one know I do, but why is the community not getting to the bottom of Patricia Godziszewski’s seemingly mediocre educational career in comparison to her compensation? Not one published example of educational excellence.

The quote from the other blog also stated that Pat Godziszewski is “Not Tainted By Political Influences In Schiller Park School District 81” I guess this isn’t really a lie as no political parties in Schiller Park would even consider being involved with Patricia Godziszewski, and honestly they just know better, because they know her.

Now with that being said I did find two campaign contributions, and one expenditure that I thought was interesting. I will also add that it didn’t take me very long to come up with the political influances of Patricia Godziszewski

We all have read about Ancel-Glink on this blog and through other media outlets, and most if not all of us are very familiar with the exceedingly high legal fees that firm brought to the tax payers of Schiller Park through David Stachura as the then School Board President, and Patricia Godziszewski as the then Vice President of School District 81. We know about the many private conversations, and the inappropriate legal expenses created by the two board members mentioned above. This is  basically a political donation to Patricia’s Campaign by a law firm that was forced on the School District by David and Patricia, and caused a drastic increase in legal fees through David, and Patricia. A law firm that was also on the cusp of being fired despite David and Patricia’s work against such a vote. The same firm that suddenly resigned very shortly before the vote would have been cast to fire them, and that same resignation letter was sent to the personal emails of David, and Patricia. That sounds a lot like politically tainted motivations to me.

How about a Polish news paper, Politicly tainted?

How about this little flip.

Yes it is an expenditure, and not a donation. I thought it was just a little odd that the Team 81 crew couldn’t find anyone local to design and create their campaign web site. In stead they turn to Tiffany N. Harrell the Marketing Manager and Graphic Specialist on the executive administrative staff of the Proviso Leyden Council for Community action. (www.plcca.org). Very possibly one of the largest political families in Proviso Township. The Harrell family, connected to the Children First Party through Francine Harrell who’s party received $500 each from the war-chests of Mayor Larry Dominick of Cicero; 92nd Dist. Rep. Jehan Gordon-Booth, of Peoria and the SEIU Local 73 PAC. Proviso Township Supervisor Michael Corrigan also kicked in $500.

Other heavy-hitters to the Children First campaign of witch a Harrell family member was a part of included businesses, Restore Construction ($1,000) and M & M Building Services ($250), both vendors to the school district. Both companies were hired in the $5 million reconstruction of Proviso East High School after the May, 2014 fire.

Restore also donated to the war chests of area Mayors Ron Serpico and Angelo “Skip” Saviano of Elmwood Park; River Grove Village President Marilyn May; State Senator Luis A. Viverito and Leyden Township Committeeman Barrett Pederson. M &M donated to Serpico and Getty in the first reporting quarter.

Details here

Some more politically tainted motivations by Patricia Godziszewski?

Now I would like to add that the Harrell family seems to have done some pretty outstanding things in the past. This is not a question I have about them or their motivations, but more a question of how people like Patricia Godziszewski, David Stachura, and Roy F McCampbell so blatantly attempt to deceive the community at large through such lies as Patricia Godziszewski not being tainted by political motivations. She has no other motivations, and politics is their only game.

Patricia Godziszewski was never in this for the children and tax payers of Schiller Park School District 81.

Censure David C Stachura
