25. Chicagoland Outdoors says "Don isn't the only "locust" in DuPage County who's concerned."

According to Adam Morgan in his article in Chicagoland Outdoors titled "Trouble in the Forest: FBI Looks Into DuPage Preserve Scandal, District President Goes On Angry Tirade." Adam closes with this...

President Pierotti then ridicules Don for what he said at a meeting last week, "that Mr. Manning and this board was being investigated by the FBI, which is nothing further from the truth. So why don't you check your facts."

Don then politely asks if he can finish. President Pierotti says "you can do anything you damn well please."

So Don asks why the President and Commissioners of the Forest Preserve won't publicly discuss Manning's bonus or the idea of closing the district.

"Are you idiotic?" Pierotti replies. "You're like the locusts, you come around every 17 years," he says, then repeats that Brent Mannings was never questioned by the FBI, and boasts that he's never had an accusation regarding the Forest Preserve substantiated by the State's Attorney's office or the FBI.

Before Don can continue, President Pierotti waves him off, saying "that's enough, I don't wanna talk anymore. I got a root canal I have to do today, I shouldn't even be here and put up with this."

He must have had quite the toothache.

Regardless of the investigation, and Brent Manning or President Pierotti's role in it (and President Pierotti's thin grasp on English grammar), this is no way to conduct oneself as an elected civil servant. Especially not towards a member of the community during a public forum. And judging from videos of other public meetings, Don isn't the only "locust" in DuPage County who's concerned.

Speaking of, locusts do not appear once every 17 years. Some cicadas do, but they belong to a completely different taxonomic order.###
