Reform and Good Governance
at the College of DuPage?
In June the College of DuPage burst into headlines with the publication of an email from its president that showed him seeking $20 million in state funding with no clear purpose. The email, released in response to a Freedom of Information Act request, led to a scathing Chicago Tribune editorial and activated residents concerned that COD was empire building at taxpayer expense.
Tonight’s speaker is College of DuPage board vice chair Kathy Hamilton. Hamilton holds an MBA from New York University, is a licensed CPA and worked in corporate finance for two Fortune 200 firms. Hamilton has demanded openness and transparency at COD, questioning the college president, administration and board majority, even as COD’s faculty union voted “no confidence” in the president by a tally of 189 – 53. For her independence, Hamilton, the board’s only CPA, has been bounced from its audit committee, removed from setting the board agenda and censured by the board – leading to another Tribune editorial, strongly supporting reform. Hamilton is a married mother of two from Hinsdale. She is a first-time officeholder.
