These awards remind me of how every vehicle wins at least one JD Powers & Associates Survey, as long as they pay for it. The Illinois Municipal Spending Engine ( The associations that works to drive spending) can certainly find ways to award folks for something. Here is a fact that isn't really being reported. Glenview's spending on total annual wages was some $6 million more over 10 years than had it merely kept pace with inflation. It was $31 million (2010 numbers), and it would have been $25,421,603.39 had it kept pace with inflation. http://www.usinflationcalculator.com/ IL has too many governments with too many employees, earning too much money and with too high a benefit level. Public employment is killing this state, and it MUST. BE. CUT.
