Ortgiesen steps down; so should mayor, others

Published: Tuesday, April 23, 2013 1:15 a.m. CST

When Mayor Burke and Commissioners Blackburn and Considine approved Shawn Ortgiesen’s expense requisitions over the past 6 years, weren’t they condoning the misuse of city funds?

Shawn Ortgiesen had the common sense and decency to resign when the facts were revealed.

Mr. Burke, Mr. Blackburn and Mr. Considine: Shouldn’t you do the same without further delay?

Note to readers – Sauk Valley Media has been told that elected city of Dixon officials began reviewing and signing expense requisitions in November 2011.
