FLOP Endorsement

As if more proof was needed that the FOP is rapidly outliving its usefulness:
  • So the FOP Executive Board voted today to not endorse one of our own members for Senate, instead 12 members chose to back Rob Martwick. In case nobody remembers, Rob Martwick is close with John Arena and even applauded him for “standing up to racism in our community,” when he filed 31 false complaints against our members. In fact Rob Martwick was the one who was at the Cubs game with Arena when he demanded to park in the police lot.

    Now not only is Rob Martwick an anti police progressive, who endorsed Kim Foxx, he appointed restorative justice fanatic Lindsey LaPointe to his State Representative Seat when he was appointed to the Senate. Lindsey LaPointe is also an extreme anti police politician who is currently pushing legislation in Springfield to abolish bonds and electronic monitoring.

    So now after knowing all of this, 12 of our Executive Board members chose to support him over a decorated member who would actually stand up for us to all these anti police lawmakers. These board members fancy themselves policemen who get to play politician, neither of which they are good at. I’m sure if the members were surveyed, nobody would agree to endorse Martwick and his anti police crew. We shouldn’t be surprised because the same board members did this two years ago when another member was running against Martwick for State Rep.

    At the core of this issue is the fact that Mark Donahue is good friends with Martwick, so Donahue gets his minions to follow. We should not have anybody on our board that supports anyone that applauds someone for filing false complaints against our members. The difference between two years ago and now is that now we have an FOP election. Everyone gets told of who to vote for and why but we also need to know who NOT to vote for and why. Well the why is because they are encouraging the anti police movement among politicians, while allowing more “restorative justice” legislation to be pushed in Springfield. So here are the board members who allow the anti police agenda to be pushed:
Anyone even remotely associated with former aldershithead Arena deserves nothing from the FOP. He registered thirty-one complaints against CPOD members based solely on their exercising their Freedom of Speech as PRIVATE CITIZENS.

These FOP members need to be voted out, and anyone who has them on their tickets should be encouraged to ... reassess ... what exactly these turncoats are bringing to the table:
  • MARK DONAHUE – Trustee
    JOHN CAPPARELLI – Treasurer
    BILL DOUGHERTY – Trustee
    KEN HAUSER – Trustee
    DANIEL TREVINO – Trustee (son running for Judge 10th Circuit)
    BILL BURNS – Sgt at Arms
    MICHAEL GARZA – Financial Sectary
    SERGIO ESCOBEDO – Trustee
    ANDREW CANTORE – Trustee
    FRANK QUINN – Trustee
    MIKE UNDERWOOD - Trustee
    (we're missing name #12)
Retirees, we're counting on you, too, to see exactly who is siding with those who are actively working against the Department.

There should be limits as to how long you can be at the FOP. Isn’t president three terms? Then you shouldn’t be able to be there more than 4 three-year terms, no matter what position you hold. The likes of Donahue, Dougherty, Aguilar, Bella, Caparelli, Bailey, Hauser, Trevino, and a festival of others whose names escape me at the moment, all need to go. You had your time. I’ve got 27+ on, Donahue’s been there pretty much since I started. Aguilar, Dougherty Bella....at least since the late 90’s to early 2000’s, and they submarined Shields when he was president. I’ve voted against all of them for years and theyre still there. Fucking go away already. If you’re retired, go enjoy the rest of your life. Go travel. Move out of state. Watch the grandkids....just get the fuck out. Like herpes...you can’t get rid of them.

Majority of people at FOP were never the police. They were the guys that bitched the most and did the least amount of work. The only one there that did any work was Greg Bella. The rest were complainers that never knew how to be the police. Bunch of cowards. Sell your souls to the devil. Fucking Judas.

One thing I’ll always remember about Martwick and Arena is that they both sent out the most glossy mailers right before the elections. I must have gotten 20 to 30 each every time there was an election. They must use the same strategist as both their flyers had the same theme. They support law enforcement, they support senior citizens, they support education, they support clean air & water. Yea bla bla bla! But nothing specific. Same old Democrat talking points that our low information voters fall for every time. But the other part of the mailer was just filled with the lies and smears about the candidates they were running against. And to really scare the voter they would say that person is a Republican or is a Trump supporter as if that was the worst thing you could ever do. That’s their speciality. There has been a study on those political mailers and it was found that they are most effective form of gaining votes than of any other means.
As for the FOP endorsement, they should ashamed of themselves. There will be two retiree votes in this household against them and against Martwick.

SCC-Thank you for confronting this unpleasant issue. I'm sure it will spark some nasty comments which will call for "killing the messenger." Why has FOP endorsed politicians such as Lisa Madigan (proponent of the Federal Court consent decree)? It appears to be the machinations of our self proclaimed Legislative Action Director, former President Mark Donahue. This jackass also receives a FOP salary while supporting the anti police politicians like Arena and Black Lives Matter thugs working for Kim Foxx.

Current President Kevin Graham should remove Donahue from the FOP payroll if he has any desire to continue his floundering presidency. Retaining Donahue would only be shooting ourselves in the foot. Perhaps a current FOP member can raise this issue at the next Lodge meeting.

They all totally blow. We've been in need of a real union for years instead of a fraternal organization. Teamsters should be representing us. FOP is just a reflection of the CPD: Nepotism, Cronyism, and a friends and family network. If you're a nobody and call there for any assistance in any matter, you can expect to be brushed aside. I've spent over 20yrs paying dues to this BS organization. And if the arguement is they're police officers like us, you're sadly mistaken, there are no police officers occupying that building at 1412 W. Washington.

M. Donahue would of tried to give Martwick the endorsement but enough people blocked it with the "very qualified" for both guys.

The cop running DO is the prime example of what is wrong with this dept. the biggest clout chaser in the dept. I’ve never seen anyone grovel for juice. The guy literally has no shame. His behavior would have most of us embarrassed but he never flinched. All he does is look out for himself and doesn’t care who he throws under the bus. I have many examples and here’s one when he was in the academy he said “you know who that is in our class, he’s a gold star son and my new best friend”. Career built on being a snake. Eventually he worked hard chasing juice he got merit Sgt which he thought he was entitled to. As a tact Sgt he would play Favs and leave cops on the street alone will he cut everyone else including himself, great officer safety DO. Or a guy on his team getting into a shooting while he decided to go home for the day leaving his guys unsupervised and refused to come back until a direct order came. The stories are endless. I would vote for a homeless mope than this lying backstabbing fool. When I saw he was running my first thought was the snake finally found out where he belongs in politics with the rest of them.

That in itself is very telling. Tells me that the vast majority is satisfied with the current state of affairs and will keep your Democratic masters in power.Hell even your elected union is endorsing a cop hating POS. To the few that care hope your planning to leave the CPD in the very near future. Really sad state of affairs, but to an outsider very entertaining.

Mark is receiving an inflated pension plus another huge salary from the fraternal order of police that we pay into that is our money, he is the leader of the cult recently saw him at it and event Mark said the pension plan is just fine it’s being funded perfectly however when you try to find out if the city is making a required contributions you can’t find out the proper information everybody always says just don’t worry about it. Being retired yes we are worried about it, it is a huge concern to many of us people like Mark and the rest of the crew are actually shoveling money into their bank accounts simple as that! Personally I will vote everyone of them out that I possibly can we need change just like the head of the fraternal order of police on Washington Street who am I going to vote for none of the old school, many are saying that Catazara he’s out of his mind, they said the same thing about President Trump who is making America great again, the greatest economy in history the most people working our enemies are afraid of us is taking care of business is pro police sorry time to take a chance at least for his old retired guy.

In response to the "Dirty Dozen", Mark Donahue and Bill Dougherty have done more harm to the FOP and the pension than you could imagine. Remember when Donahue forgave the city around 20 million dollars that was owed to the pension? As a board member myself, I'm embarrassed what goes on at our board meetings. Shameful best describes them.

To you young officers reading this, Donahue and Dougherty are hooked up with the 19 Ward and Mike Madigan. This is a fact. They are both seasoned liars, especially Donahue.

The bottom line is this; if you want change in the FOP, start by giving these two "politicians" the boot!

Retired officer here. I never understood the FOP endorsements for the entire length of my career. Seems like they rarely endorsed candidates that I would vote for. Or that the membership would vote for. Thanks SCC for that list. What a bunch of useless do nothings who show up at districts and units every few years looking for a vote. Then you never see them again. The membership doesn't appear to be well represented here, and that may be an understatement. I decided when I retired, to no longer be associated with the Lodge. I have always felt that somehow these politicians that were endorsed against all logic, and somehow were pulling the strings of the Lodge. So, I pulled my dues. Seems anything remotely related to the city of Chicago is doomed to failure, and corrupted from within. The FOP is like an onion. The more you peel back, the more it stinks. So, you young guys and gals, vote for turnover at every election. Do not keep the same people in the lodge. Just my .02
Stay Safe everyone...the enemy lies within the gates.

My belief is that someone like Ray Casiano has the experience of serving in an administration where he gave up some of his extra salary to show he wasn’t in it for the money...that alone speaks highly of a persons character and demeanor. He is also the only one who voted against sending our contract negotiations to arbitration. He isn’t perfect nor is anyone else, but I do believe he will fight for the members. We live in a day where VRI, VRE or any other OT officers can get is appreciated and needed. That being said, money is the root of all evils...he was promised high paying jobs while serving as VP of the prior FOP administration and he turned them down. His interest isn’t politically motivated, he’s a former Marine who understands the importance of commaraderie, troop welfare and standing up for what is just for the members. Everyone is entitled to their own opinions and this one is mine. Either way, we need to vote to have a voice. By the way I have never seen anyone in the current administration visit a district over the last 4 years! Apparently social media takes precedence over human interaction nowadays.

Anyone on the board who voted in support of Martwick must be voted out! Can they provide any reason why they support Martwick over a member of FOP? Why does the FOP board vote in secrecy when they select a political candidate to support? Let the membership make the decisions. I can check their backgorunds but instead look at their current actions. Absolute bullshit to support martwick.

It's all relative my friend. If these people are willing to back direct enemies of police officers, do you really think they're going to have your best interest in mind when it comes to you getting sued, or fired, or us getting raises ect? They may as well be our enemy themselves. You don't have to overthink anything, you hardly have to think at all.

Everyone knows we don't matter. Cops don't vote. We don't even vote for one of our own. We really are useless.

The bigger dis is that with the endorsement goes our money. The FLOP will give our dues money to the candidate they choose. Martwick, Arena, and they other B have to be laughing their asses off at us.

We should be represented by Teamsters or MAAP or any other REAL union that doesn't have reps/trustees who look out for themselves first and foremost.

I'm sure most of you won't understand this, but politics makes strange bedfellows. Sometimes you have to side with the person who is in the position to help you most. Maybe Martwick made some bad decisions, but he is going to remain in his elected position with or without an FOP endorsement.

The job of every elected member on the FOP board is to do what is best for ALL members of the FOP and that is exactly what they did. Like it or not we are going to need this guy when legislation hits Springfield that we are for or against. He has always supported us there.

And by the way, get your facts straight. The FOP did not endorse either candidate in this race. Both candidates were classified as Qualified.

They have “stole” over a million dollars between the lodge with the salaries and expense accounts.

Honestly, most of you people don't have a clue as to what goes on at FOP. Someone tells you some bullshit and you perpetuate it.

Nobody did more for FOP members than Donahue while he was president. Nobody has done more for FOP members since.

While president this Lodge became solvent. His predecessors kept this Lodge in debt that they never intended to get out of. The Lodge building was paid off within the first three years of his first term. He was able to garner more pension benefits than anyone before or after him. He got premium free healthcare for retirees. He got a work schedule changed from 6-2 to 4-2. He got sworn affidavits, got rid of the roundtable for officer involved shootings where an officer had to give a statement within two hours of the shooting. He got duty availability. I could go on, but you should have gotten the picture by now.

After his presidency, he became a lobbyist for the Lodge and still is today. He we works exclusively for the Lodge meaning there is not any conflict of interest for him. Most lobbyists have several clients and play both sides of the fence. He has kept the board of directors in the know when it comes to any legislation that can effect police officers either positively or negatively.

It's really too bad that someone thought a term limit was the only way to prevent another Bill Nolan. The FOP isn't fucked up because of Donahue. It's fucked up because of the term limit which led to the people that followed him; Shields, Angelo, and Graham. The voters have always had the ability to put a term limit on anyone by voting them out. They never voted Donahue our for a reason. He was best we ever had.

For what, maybe 7,000 city-County wide votes?
The voice that represents us (FOP & various committees) is only somewhat relevant.
Democrats 99% don’t recognize FOP unless there’s PAC money coming in from the Membership.

Endorsements should not be offered up by a band of 12, but if so needed it should come from The Membership.
That goes to all elected including sworn and former members on the ballot.
It’s a stretch to even get Member to vote on Contract ratification hence kooky endorsements from a Board with little push back.

Martwick may have offered some good points here and there, NONE recently but he knows all too well how to pander for the Dem votes and the Party money...if he wants to remain in office. If he signaled against policy makers LightLoafer and JB Porterhouse, then that’s all he has. But if he’s with Section8’Arena then he won’t ever go against LightLoafer and the progressives of like.
Sidling along with Loser Section8’Arena probably was never considerEd, perhaps even known when the Band of 12 made that recommendation.
Martwick ALWAYS makes himself known, making the rounds on the NW side... around Election Time - always.
What’s he working on for the CPD - FOP right now?

Our Pension and Contract is under siege, being dismantled and reconfigured...and not a thing Martwick can do.
So again, what did Martwick propose on behalf of FOP ?
Remember when FOP for years endorsed both Madigans (but not since 2016?) because they said “FOP needed a friend in Springfield“.
How did that work out ? Are we better off now than 10 years ago?

I won’t support Martwick or anyone else that has such close ties to Democrat lunacy.
I’ll roll the dice on little known GOP IL Senate candidate Beckman, heck I might go with OToole (D) just to oust these lifetime career politicians.

Remember and always cast a vote.

This FOP absolutely refuses to address the OUTDATED residency rule, or do anything about the bullshit gun registration policy that CPD has (when NOBODY else in the country has to do it)!

As a loyal member of the FOP for the past 24 years I finally have had enough. I know several of the names on this list, some are work acquaintances, others are (or were) friends, and no matter who was in charge or on the Board, I always went along with what they were doing by blindly believing that they had the best interest of me, and the CPD as their primary goal. Over the years this belief has been slowly chipped away and, for me, it has finally come to a head.

This is the second election in a row that the FOP has defied current members seeking Office by not supporting those who have our best interest at heart, whom at their core serve and protect this City and have decided to put their names out there and do more. I am flabbergasted after these candidates toed the line and walked the beat with me and other loyal CPD members to learn that they did not receive support form the FOP.

If you cannot support Sgt Daniel O'Toole and you are a member of the FOP Election Committee you should just resign now. How in the world you did not bring an unanimous decision to support O'Toole over Martwick (Donahue bestie) just proves a nasty rumor that has been spread, you are in the FOP for yourselves, not for US, the members. Biily D & Frank Q, I am saddened by your actions and lack of intestinal fortitude to stand up and do the right thing. Please resign.

To all of the north side Officers, Firemen and City Workers, please know that you have a fighter in O'Toole, a person who WILL go and stand up to all the BS that the restorative justice & social justice warrior candidates and policies that are out there. He served his country, he has served his city and now he went out on a limb and without much money, fanfare, and sadly, support from the FOP, he has volunteered to serve his ward - and I am certain he will succeed in doing so if given the chance. He has a history of high success in each of his endeavors in life, Senate would just be the next in line.

Some of the New York City cops complain about their union but it still seems much stronger than in Chicago. If the FOP thought they were going to be dumped then maybe they would take a stronger stance. Until then, until a show of mass anger, people overflowing at the meetings, things will remain the same. Members think things won't change so they don't bother to go to the meetings. That mindset is why Groot won the office of mayor.

Lots of lies being spewed on this blog. my message to the members, listen carefully to the candidates when they come talk to you. Do your research. google their names, see what kind of cops they are or were. their reputations matter. look into their backgrounds. you are all coppers, trust your own judgment. then Vote.

**Im tired of listening to all the candidates coming to our roll calls and wasting our time with their pre-scripted bullshit!!! They have all lied to get into office to make their fucking money and screw the rest of us..so I think we should vote them all out and start fresh just like the bullshit brass that gets dumped or they run scared and retire...bye bye!! Perhaps the more important vote "WE"(meaning true paying members) should vote on is dumping lodge 7!!!

Local #2 did not endorse Martwick because he has pending legislation for a 3% cola bill that he is sponsoring for first responders . Whats scary is when you have police officers bad rapping fellow police officers to firemen. Pretty sad when a fireman has to tell police officers not to criticize their own!

I'm going to play devil's advocate here. I do not agree with the endorsement of martwick but I am also 100% positive that I have yet to see one police officer who decided to run for office it is truly qualified to do so.
Just like everybody else they sit there and complain and they say they will introduce real change. there is no more generic thing to say than that. If you give me a police officer, or anyone else for that matter, that has a definitive plan, a backing, and a real strategy then I will endorse and vote for them, but until then just being a policeman does not get my endorsement or vote.
Just standing on a soapbox and telling me that you serve the community as a police officer doesn't mean anything more than a 20-year neighborhood grocer, or garbage man, or a lifetime resident of the neighborhood for that matter.
Whatever the case, though Martwicks opponent, the police officers resume on the police department might seem impressive, his resume as a politician or potential politician is zero. his website does not provide an explanation outside of telling you the illinois in the toilet basically. No real news there

What is the motive for all this appearing on the blog? Maybe it's to hide the fact that O'Toole is going to get smoked in the primary. It's a fake election for him. No money raised. No skin in the game. And the FOP is supposed to randomly hand out endorsements to guys that have never done anything for them? And they couldn't get a thing done for us if elected. Before jumping on this band wagon, take a serious look at what this does for policemen. It completely isolates us in friendly turf.

O'Toole was NOT a member of FOP until October??? And now FOP has to bow to him and piss off someone that votes for us and has major say in helping us?? Think like an adult.

We've seen P.O. candidates in the 19th ward lose big time in real elections against non police officer advocates. This is a dangerous game to beat up on candidates that are police friendly. O'Toole probably just wants to get promoted and this is his means to an end. I'm a Sgt, but i couldn't trust many Sgt's to do the right thing. Sorry

Please support OToole, Kilroy, Garrido, as well as ASA Mike OMalley and Lorraine Murphy for Judge. Also vote against Foxx. Thanks.

Kilroy is the biggest jagoff. Worked with him in 017. He wasnt liked. Vote for anyone other than kilroy.

My belief is that someone like Ray Casiano has the experience of serving in an administration where he gave up some of his extra salary to show he wasn’t in it for the money...that alone speaks highly of a persons character and demeanor. He is also the only one who voted against sending our contract negotiations to arbitration. He isn’t perfect nor is anyone else, but I do believe he will fight for the members. We live in a day where VRI, VRE or any other OT officers can get is appreciated and needed. That being said, money is the root of all evils...he was promised high paying jobs while serving as VP of the prior FOP administration and he turned them down. His interest isn’t politically motivated, he’s a former Marine who understands the importance of commaraderie, troop welfare and standing up for what is just for the members. Everyone is entitled to their own opinions and this one is mine. Either way, we need to vote to have a voice. By the way I have never seen anyone in the current administration visit a district over the last 4 years! Apparently social media takes precedence over human interaction nowadays.


Have to agree. Had a situation that came up and Casiano stepped up and handled it. Sent me to the right people, took an interest in the case and answered all the calls and went out of his way Thanks Ray

What FOP should be doing is helping get the word out to oust deranged Democrats in the U.S. House Reps from Illinois.
FOP should be all on board to rid these nasty resistance cranks:
Casten IL - 6th District
Bustos IL- 17th District
Underwood IL- 14th District

The GOP needs to regain the U.S. House of Representatives.
If you have Suburban relatives and friends that live in these IL House districts remind them to vote GOP.
MAGA - KAG needs 12 House seats nationwide.

ALSO, there are 4 Democrat U.S. Reps in Florida, 2 in Arizona and 1 in Wisconsin that need to go too.

Get that word out FOP - Martwick will NOT do anything for CPD.
Once a Democrat Always a Democrat.
He’ll side with with the rank and file of every Dem in Springfield, including TurdDurban and DuckWorthless every single time.

To the guy that blasted OToole about when he made Sgt and so on he is full of shit. Yes Danny was merit for which I don’t agree with, but if they are going to make merit, how can you go against a decorated copper who has been shot and stabbed. This clown who critiqued Otoole is obviously one of the fop members who voted for Martwick and against a good copper. Look I was promoted 3 times by test and I hate merit. Fop has turned into a organization where everybody is their for personal gain, not a concern for the members. The only one down their with balls and for the Police as far as I’m concerned is Greg Bella. Jagoff graham came out months ago and publicly said he was endorsing Martwick, without even meeting Danny. Anthony Napolitano worked with Danny on a beat car in 15 years ago and is totally behind him. We need Martwick who appointed himself to the Senate with the help of his rat partner John Arena out. Martwick again with Arena help appointed him to the 38th Ward Committeeman post. These guys are the kings of back room deals....

Thanks to SCC for this post, if only because Officers are now aware of the issue prior to the ballots going out. However, it will be wise to ascertain the facts, and even wiser to understand that Martwick could be a friend insofar as the pension is concerned. Among my fondest wishes is for all of you great young (and not so young) Officers to navigate your careers, finish in one piece, and enjoy retirement as much as I am currently doing. No politician is your friend anyway, and they are mostly there to make the job more difficult for us. None of that really matters as long as the pension fund is secured, and and whatever else Martwick votes for or against does not concern me. As for Mark Donahue, he is paid less per hour that most Officers despite his extra income, and no one has done more to save the pension fund. He has also been the police his whole career, and if you think otherwise, go to a meeting and tell him as much to his face. Being the gentleman he is, nothing is likely to happen to you as a result. It cannot be stated too strongly...VOTE!

You are really one screwed up dude. The Board meeting is always held on the first Tuesday of the month. Graham changed it with less than a week's notice.

As to Murray and Aguilar, the Board voted to adhere to the bylaws of the Lodge and pay them what is required. If they didn't you'd be bitching about that too. Just what the fuck does anybody's pension have to do with how much they get paid at a job anywhere? Any retiree has earned his pension after contributing for 30 plus years. If you decide to go work for Microsoft after you retire should you get paid less than someone else doing the same job just because you're already getting a pension? Now STFU! It's time for you to come up from the basement. Your momma's calling you for dinner.

Some FOP History said...
Honestly, most of you people don't have a clue as to what goes on at FOP. Someone tells you some bullshit and you perpetuate it.

Nobody did more for FOP members than Donahue while he was president. Nobody has done more for FOP members since.

While president this Lodge became solvent. His predecessors kept this Lodge in debt that they never intended to get out of. The Lodge building was paid off within the first three years of his first term. He was able to garner more pension benefits than anyone before or after him. He got premium free healthcare for retirees. He got a work schedule changed from 6-2 to 4-2. He got sworn affidavits, got rid of the roundtable for officer involved shootings where an officer had to give a statement within two hours of the shooting. He got duty availability. I could go on, but you should have gotten the picture by now.

After his presidency, he became a lobbyist for the Lodge and still is today. He we works exclusively for the Lodge meaning there is not any conflict of interest for him. Most lobbyists have several clients and play both sides of the fence. He has kept the board of directors in the know when it comes to any legislation that can effect police officers either positively or negatively.

It's really too bad that someone thought a term limit was the only way to prevent another Bill Nolan. The FOP isn't fucked up because of Donahue. It's fucked up because of the term limit which led to the people that followed him; Shields, Angelo, and Graham. The voters have always had the ability to put a term limit on anyone by voting them out. They never voted Donahue our for a reason. He was best we ever had.

1/13/2020 09:24:00 AM

The best contract I've ever had in my 21yrs on the job was under Donahue.

If you dont like him, ok, but in the last 20yrs which President has been better than him?

Another huge problem is that our members don't bother to attend the FOP meetings. Then they hear rumors and innuendo and perpetuate it on this blog. Go to the meetings and get the facts! Too many low information, and uninformed members out there. Our FOP leaders are a joke, and may be in the bag for corrupt politicians. The FOP meetings should have standing room only and the elected members should be encouraging more and more member to appear, but they don't. U know why? Cuz it's working for them. Many members on this blog have valid ideas, but posting on SCC is all they do. Go to an FOP meeting, and you will see how screwed the pooch really is. If they hear enough griping on political endorsements, maybe they will change their tune. In fact tell them so at the meetings!
I'm retired and no longer a member and will be moving out of state. I went to FOP meetings early on and learned that Bill Nolan and his henchmen were no friends of the rank and file police. I remember him telling us that the contract that his crew brought (under Daley) was the best deal for the member ship we were gonna get. We voted that contract down resoundingly and went to arbitration, and got a better deal. That was the last time I remember all of us being united. It was empowering to say the least.
Go to the meetings once in a while, and speak up. They cant stop you from doing that.
