chaos in campton: I just witnessed stupidity in Campton Hills - - - Again! - 01/05/11 06:01 PM
So I come from this hearing on whether or not Kristin LeBlanc should be allowed to run against Patsy Smith as the new president of Campton Hills.  The hearing, which had a board or panel made up of three village people was kinda fun to watch.  I showed up late because of events with my kids and school, but I still caught the better part of the 3 hour dog and pony show. 
In fairness to a Mr. Millette (spelling, I'm not sure) he seemed to try to be fair to both sides, but after each attorney proposed an objection he'd relent.  The … (3 comments)

chaos in campton: A New Group Opposing Campton HIlls - 06/24/09 02:47 PM
I wish that I could say that I have had even one thing to do with this site, but unfortunately, my contribution is just sharing this site with the world, or more importantly, the concerned citizens of what I hope will someday be "formerly called" Campton Hills.  A new site was launched and in all truth, I have no idea who did this, but to say that it tickles me would be a gross understatement.  I wish the person(s) would step forward so that I can give kudos where kudos is needed. 
Here's the site....
Here are the top 3 questions … (0 comments)

chaos in campton: Campton Dissolution Is on The Ballot!!!!!!!! - 09/01/08 02:19 PM
A lot of taxpayers want out of Campton Hills...or whatever the name of the community of the month is.  People overwhelmingly want out.  Petitions for disconnect continue forth.  Judge Colwell ruled that the first two dicsonnect are allowed to leave and return to the peaceful entity formerly known as Campton Township.
There's a great amount of people who want to also see the entire frigging community go bye-bye.  More than enough people have demanded that the residents take a vote.  The vote simply needs to ask....SHOULD CAMPTON HILLS BE DISBANDED?????  Although the answer to this is a resounding yes, certain … (2 comments)

chaos in campton: More Irresponsibility in Campton Hills - 08/19/08 04:56 PM
The KAne County Chronicle Today wrote about the village dissolution....A question to dissolve the village should not be on the Nov. 4 ballot because it is the wrong election and it was filed too soon after incorporation, four Campton Hills residents say.In court papers filed late Friday, Edward Fiala III, Aubrey Neville, Nancy Nickels and Linda Smith sued Chris Baldwin and Kane County Clerk Jack Cunningham to remove the dissolution question before ballots are printed. An initial hearing on the issues is scheduled today before Kane County Circuit Court Judge Michael Colwell."We are asking the judge to act quickly because the … (0 comments)

chaos in campton: Campton Hills...My Personal Experience - 08/08/08 02:17 AM
The microburst that came through monday night left devastation at our house.  A lot of our roof was ripped off.  Shingle nails came down and pierce car tires.  13 large trees were torn down, but ultimately our family was safe.  No one was hurt.  We couldn't access our street because of all of the trees down on the street.  Later that evening Campton brought out a front loader and pushed the trees into the yards to make the streets accessible.
We had family come over to remove the trees and the pieces of our neighbor's homes that landed in our yard.  … (6 comments)

chaos in campton: Betty Loren-Malteese Leads Campton Hills?????? - 08/03/08 04:42 PM
Funny thing happened to me last night.  I was out eating in Geneva when I ran into Paul Fritz, local landscape business owner who is trying to be squeezed by the local dictatorship, er government.  Mr. Fritz was telling me of his woes and the villages desire to burden him with a ridiculous SSA (Special Service Area) tax.  I later went home and found an article on Paul Fritz from the Kane County Chronicle. 
Evidently, there is a drainage problem and Kane County is going to pay for about 1/2 half of the cost to make these changes.  Having said that, … (4 comments)

chaos in campton: Campton's Leaders Back Down.... - 07/18/08 03:21 PM
Campton Hills has decided to allow the petition for the dissolution of Campton HIlls to be certified.  Mind you, these leaders have spent a lot of time and money creating a community that most people now don't want.  They incorporated, and have spent a lot of money in legal fees fighting subdivisions that have the right to opt out.  What's so amazing is that I believe the majority of Campton's residents don't want anything to do with this village, but we're being taxed to pay attorneys to keep us hostage in Campton.  So stupid isn't it? 
I have spoken to people … (0 comments)

chaos in campton: Campton Hills....the cards begin to crumble!!!! - 07/17/08 03:17 PM
Looks like the people are speaking.  The question becomes...IS THE VILLAGE LISTENING.  It only took, what, 250 people to get the referendum on the ballot to create this quagmire, but they needed over 2000, yes two-thousand, signatures to get the ballot to state, 'LET'S KICK OUR NEW VILLAGE TO THE CURB.  Long overdue. 
The village had a short notice meeting to discuss the actions of the village clerk.  You can find the referendum for the DISSOLUTION OF  CAMPTON, as well as the emergency board minutes that focused, for the most part on the clerk....not the resolution.
I've spoken to people who supported … (4 comments)

chaos in campton: Campton Hills...the house of cards begins to crumble - 06/12/08 04:18 PM
Well just as I've been saying all along.  All those promises of NO MORE TAXES helped our Village of Campton Hills officials get elected and a new town created.....Gross.
The Kane County Chronicle reported yesterday that "Campton Hills wants to create a special tax district to pay for drainage improvements in the Evening Prairie and Verhaeghe subdivisions and about 87 adjacent acres. About 40 homeowners are affected. County officials say the area's aging drain tiles are on the verge of collapse and the work is necessary."  A courageous land owner, Mr. Paul Fritz, evidently is considering fighting this tax.
Of course, … (4 comments)

chaos in campton: Communism has come to Campton... - 05/29/08 02:24 PM
Last week, I went to the Board Meeting for the Village of Campton Hills (VofCH).  The VofCH declared the dissolution petition containing 2100 signatures -determined to be valid by the Kane County Electoral Board this past December - to be VOID. Patsy Smith briefly feigned concern about providing some sort of explanation to the audience as to how this decision was reached. Attorney Braithwaite, in a side comment to President Smith, indicated that no explanation was necessary.The Board, none of whom dared to make eye contact with the mostly anti-Village audience, unanimously approved the decision. So much for open government and self determination!
Campton Hills officials took steps Tuesday to … (2 comments)

chaos in campton: Walk with your IPOD and get Ticketed in Campton - 05/16/08 01:48 AM
Now that Campton Hills is slowly falling apart, I think that it's time to share with you the latest incident that happened last week out in the Village.  This is crazy stuff.  As you know, the "Owners" of this village, Patsy Smith, et al. have represented that they are going to run the village with no new taxes. salaries, new costs, more overhead and purchase village SUVs and no new taxes. 
There are the regular reports of getting ticketed for speeding 48 in a 45 zone.  Yes the speeder sped, but again, common sense is not prevailing here.  But with … (3 comments)

chaos in campton: Campton Trustees can't agree on Salaries - 10/17/07 07:13 AM
Campton Hills trustees can't agree on how much they are to be paid.  Patsy Smith, who is now shoving a tax increase to the community for a police force increase, is now asking for more money for herself.  This is from the administration that ran it's campaign on not having to need new taxes to create this new entity to support our community.  Charles Cappell seems to be the only trustee insisting on honoring the terms that they posted in order to get this village in place.  In other words, everyone else doesn't care to honor the platform that they used to … (2 comments)

chaos in campton: More Chaos in Campton Hills - Illinois - 10/03/07 05:23 PM
So stupid is the administration in Campton Township.  They ran a political campaign on one of two platforms.  They said that they wouldn't raise taxes because the current tax base would be sufficient to support our township.  Later there is a double murder.  The police chief doesn't even go to the crime scene.  read the article below, but get my comments after words.  The comments are from the Kane County Chronicle.
After facing blistering criticism from a village resident, Police Chief Greg Anderson admitted that he should have come to the scene of Sunday's domestic shooting.Anderson said he was not told about the … (0 comments)
