Comments & Commentary by Charles Hill

If you haven’t seen the movie “Liar, Liar” starring Jim Carey you should see it. This column would then make more sense. If you haven’t, let me describe some of the plot. Carey plays an attorney who is a habitual liar. This trait isn’t lost on his young son who uses his birthday wish to correct the behavior his Dad (Carey) demonstrates on a daily basis. You’re probably saying get to the point Charles.

Okay, each of us has a wish each and every birthday. I would ask each of you to wish that the Mayor Of St. Charles, Patti York, would have to tell the truth for 24 hours straight. That would mean we could really find out the answers to these important questions.

1) Why did she run Chief Swope out of town? 2) What is her true relationship with former FOP prez and her top cop Thomas Mayer. 3) Did she tell the St. Charles Police Association that she would fire Swope. 4) Why Dennis Corley for Chief? 5) Did she know about the alleged forgeries before hand on the recall petitions? 6) Why would a night shift cop call Patti to let her know that her daughter was caught cashing alleged forged checks before anyone else? 6) What do the night shift cops have hanging over Patti’s head? 7) What qualifies Lionel to be a construction contractor? 8) Is his new found company doing work for anyone who has contracts with the City or who needed the approval of Patti (City) to build?

Send in your questions the week before your birthday, maybe if we all wish it may come true.
