FOP Runoff (UPDATES)

Early returns from the Hall:
  • 9,000 votes, plus or minus.
That's pathetic to say the least. We'll see what the breakdown is between retirees and active members.
  • Runoff - Angelo versus Shields?
That would be truly pathetic.

UPDATE: NOT Shields.

Angelo versus Graham.

Looks like Martin Prieb won his race.

No it's official there will be a runoff. Angelo v Kevin graham. Marty prieb wins as 2nd VP. Just so all of you know, if Angelo wins then the vote on Prieb is wasted because he will never let Marty be part of unit 541 which means his day to day job is at the lodge. More than likely if you vote Angelo then prieb gets wasted just being assigned to his current unit and is no better to us than just a simple unit rep. I really think we need prieb in the forefront of our union.

Would it be apathetic, rather than pathetic? Or, would it be both? It seems 9K, or 50%, participating is not bad, considering the participation of other recent elections of all kinds, however, I had hoped for 75+% participation.

Yes, Angelo wants the best for us, but can he really make a difference, can anyone dent this anti police corrupt city hall machine, he only gets on tv at 2am for 15 min on the channel nobody watches. Whatever. Hope he does a better job. We really need a loud voice. 1st and the 16th, no isr's, no receipts, goto calls. That's it.

100% agreed with you you cannot let Bella in that office he can't be trusted when Grahamtakes over Bella must be on the outside. Bella has been around a long time he's a very subversive person be very careful around him personally I know him and I won't even talk in front of him because you cannot be trusted is involved in a lot of collusion. If you get a CR number and Bella is involved with it expected take time and a suspension possibly in addition to a longer time.

Why do you re-elect an idiot to FOP? I don't understand this at all and hope I don't have to read anymore about how the City is screwing you. If the City is screwing you, you don't re-elect the guy who helped screw you.

I voted for Kevin Graham, he's not perfect but atleast his heart is in the right place. I think he will do his best. Angelo sucked all the way around. That contract was horrible and anyone with half a brain cell knows it. Dean caved on a ton of things which were in favor of the City and diminished your benefits. Blah blah blah.....he couldn't negotiate because of the letter. We should always go to arbitration, we may not gain but odds are we wouldn't lose as many benefits as Dean gave away. The healthcare issue was BS, they (Dean's Regime) convinced everyone that healthcare was a risk going to an arbitrator. Yeah maybe we would have gotten the Tier system and shitty prescription coverage anyway, but maybe not. Dean handed over your healthcare without a fight because it didn't affect him. Do you really want this fool handing over all your Due Process rights regarding CR investigations, suspensions, call back, and terminations in the next contract at a time when the City and the Alderman want you to have zero rights. You can't even carry a cell phone at work anymore. He let the City off the hook for funding the pension. If history repeats, Dean will give more away. And don't forget the way the City didn't abide by anything in the contract they didn't want too. Clear violations and obvious grievances that the FOP would ignore and hope you go away when it was brought to their attention. Please people use your head and vote for Kevin Graham. No one could possibly do a worse job than Dean Angelo, whose name appears in the dictionary as the definition of fetal.

I voted for Shields, hoped to get a vocal President once again. Anything is better than Dean at this point, I hope anyone who voted for others throws his/her support behind Graham. Angelo has allowed our pension to take further hits by letting the city off the hook for payments into the fund. We have the worst funding ratio of all funds in all major cities. We need an advocate for us who will force the city to make their contributions, otherwise we will pay the piper down the line in the form of reduced benefits. Detroit is proof it can happen. It is time to follow the lead of places like Indianapolis, where they are 98% funded. I believe we are 25% funded, and that is beyond frightening. Vote Graham, at least it will be a different approach from Silent Dean.

I'm a supervisor and cannot understand why the first thing you guys don't do as a membership is to change the by-laws to prevent retirees from voting. What right does a retiree have to hold a position and make decisions that affect the working conditions of active duty cops. That mazes me, that retirees can shape the board of directors of the FOP. Wow!

I voted for Shields, hoped to get a vocal President once again. Anything is better than Dean at this point, I hope anyone who voted for others throws his/her support behind Graham. Angelo has allowed our pension to take further hits by letting the city off the hook for payments into the fund. We have the worst funding ratio of all funds in all major cities. We need an advocate for us who will force the city to make their contributions, otherwise we will pay the piper down the line in the form of reduced benefits. Detroit is proof it can happen. It is time to follow the lead of places like Indianapolis, where they are 98% funded. I believe we are 25% funded, and that is beyond frightening. Vote Graham, at least it will be a different approach from Silent Dean.

I think you are giving the president position of the FOP too much credit, no matter who he is. He does not let the city off the hook on the pension. He has very little if any control over the pension. Those changes go thru Springfield and the mayor
Do you really believe any FOP president could have stopped that. Why would he have allowed it to be changed is he had any control. That's way above his pay scale
Is is hard for any FOP president to get changes made when there is a no strike clause, simple as that

So what now loudmouth? The other option is a guy who collected disability while getting paid a 6 figure salary, then gets elected to collect another 6 figure salary. Miraculously recovers, gets cleared after 10+ years of scamming, to return to active duty so he can retire and collect a pension. I've heard of double dipping, this is quadruple dipping. What a role model and leader. No thanks buddy!

Dean will kick Marty Prieb to the side of the road if elected in the runoff because Marty ran with Kevin Graham.
Disability Dean will be retired in 2 months because he turns 63. He cannot negotiate our contract as a retiree.
Election boils down to an active officer who is still on the street versus a 10 year disability scammer who worked a $90,000 a year job as a professor while collecting disability and when given the ultimatum by the pension board to retire or come back to full duty he miraculously came back full duty after bilking our pension fund out of over $500,000.00. Wake up FOP.

If you voted for Marty Preib that vote will be wasted if you vote for Angelo. Graham and Preib ran together and a vote for Kevin Graham assures Marty Preib a voice in the FOP.

Congratulations to Marty Preib. Preib is a fighter, he is a rebel rosier, he also would be the person to push against the city on the various issues that affect the WORKING POLICE OFFICERS. Here is the problem, Angelo would never allow him to be part of his regime. I was unaware that the Union President could pick his own cabinet and disregard the voices of the Officers. Angelo would never have Marty around him every day and the reason is simple. Marty would see what is going on from the inside. Off all of the people who have ran in this election, who actually has fought for the working Police. Now I know what people are going to say, Angelo has fought for us. Has he? How many issues or how many times Angelo has been silent or just given us lip service on the issues that effect us? Have you ever red Preib blog? He has been in the trenches for a number of years now, how many other officers can say that? If Angelo wins and does not allow Prieb in then this would be another indication that Angelo has no part of fighting the establishment. For this reason alone, vote for Graham

Yeah wake the fuck up and put the disability scammer back in office who has not been on the street for 12 years because he was to busy bilking our pension fund out of $600,000.00 while collecting $90K a year as a full time professor who will be a retiree in 2 months when he turns 63. Why would anyone vote for a guy who stole from our pension fund?????????????
This election is active officer Graham (Trump) versus retired disability scammer Angelo (Hillary). Time to drain the swamp. The pension board should be going after Dean for the over $600,000.00 he stole from our pension fund.

I am glad I am retired. A vote for Graham is a vote for Rahm. Marky D voted to endorse Rahm. Elect Graham and the lawsuits against the FOP will again begin. The FOP will be broke in no time. As for Prieb, you might as well voted for a civilian. He never done an ounce of police work. Just ask anyone who "worked" with him.

A vote for Graham is a vote to put Donohue and Doherty back running the union and making themselves rich.
3/11/2017 02:32:00 AM

Donahue and Doherty got pension legislation passed that funded our pension at 90% by the year 2040. Disability Dean who stole $600,000.00 from our pension fund just endorsed the latest pension legislation that passed and defeated the previous legislation by kicking the can down the road to 2065 when our fund will be funded at 90% costing the taxpayers of Chicago an additional 20 billion dollars. BTW Disability Dean has not submitted any legislation in his entire three year term of office. He's in Rahms pocket.

There are policemen in this city that have been in numerous shootings, been shot, made literally thousands of arrests, saved lives, and been sued countless times. Angelo' son as a merit detective? Unreal, ridiculous and unfair. That is why I cannot vote for Angelo. Where did he work 014?? Slap in the face to working police men and women. Nice hat in that picture Angelo... you look like a French poet. Weirdo

we need to have a debate at FOP hall for everyone running and have a moderator. Let the membership get up and ask questions of the candidates and let us hear their answers. Add amendment to by laws to have elected members only be in the office. Do away with all the vice presidents except one and the sergeants at arm except one. A good way to cut union expenses. After all, the United States of America has only ONE vice president and we seem to have done well all these years.

You are correct Dean must go look what he has done to our pension look what it has done for anything anybody he has done nothing all he does is hide apparently you never see him at one time Greg Bella would speak out but he is now known as Quiet Greg also I wouldn't trust him as far as I could throw him he needs to go also hoping that Kevin Graham keeps him away from any Apple Pay businesses somebody you can trust does not belong up there.

What did Tommy do now inquiring minds would love to know. Tommy was part of the deal with Dean whoever won the presidency would give the other one a beautiful job with the fraternal order of police the fix was in at that time another reason to vote in Kevin Graham if for no other reason then to get rid of Dean and put Marty in let's hope and pray that that anyone that was left from the last administration and is still in a position of any type of authority is not a lot To be in our union hall too much to learn for that person and that person would be we deafly never be trusted. The only person that should definitely stay there 100% is Maggie O'Grady that woman came from the Pension Board that was the only move that Dean made that was great she helped many with pension problems and also when rum decided to cancel the Blue Cross and Blue Shield medical plan for active and retired officers she took a stance took many phone calls and she had to get it resolved.

First the only thing Dean can teach you is anything you want to know about the medical and how to beat them. Also only one or two retiree should be able to be involved and on the board of FOP. Retirees have very little skin in the game. If Dean and Kevin are the best we can do then throw the towel in and lets change direction and go with someone else.Greg and pension board Mike also need to go. Mikie is a total goof. He's on lite duty and working part time for IROCC at the ranges and has been for several years. Total goof talking stupid every chance he gets.
