ANTHONY FICARELLI, HINSHAW PARTNER, CONTINUES TO FEED AT THE PUBLIC TROUGH TO THE DETRIMENT OF  TAXPAYERS 


Such a busy guy. No wonder he is always smiling. 

Reminds us of the old story of the 45 year old attorney who dies suddenly and appears before St. Peter at the pearly gates. He protests his death and can't understand why he is up in heaven. St. Peter replied "according to your billings, you are 76 years old!" 

Ficarelli found a gaping hole to capitalize on building his predatory law practice by identifying unsophisticated local school board members as a target to derive personal gain at taxpayer expense.

We just obtained information from Lincolnwood District 74 regarding his billings from 2012 to the present. Click here to download the full FOIA response.

Again, here is the link to his Waukegan billings.

Ficarelli billed the following hours:

April, 2014 
Lincolnwood 86 hrs =$27,950.00
Waukegan  35.3 hrs =$9,001.50
TOTAL = $36,251.50

May, 2014
Lincolnwood 132.3 hrs =$42,997.50
Waukegan  4.3 hrs =$1,225.50
TOTAL = $44,223.00

June, 2014
Lincolnwood 97.6 hrs =$31,720.00
Waukegan  54.7 hrs =$15,589.50
TOTAL = $47,309.50

July, 2014
Lincolnwood 56.4 hrs =$18,330.00
Waukegan  53.6 hrs =$15,276.00
TOTAL = $33,606.00

August, 2014
Lincolnwood 97.6 hrs =$31,720.00
Waukegan  47.4 hrs =$12,910.50
TOTAL = $44,630.50

FIVE MONTHS AGGREGATE 
BILLINGS  = $206,020.50

Pigs get fat; hogs get slaughtered. 

Donaldo & Mary, it is time to terminate Ficarelli's sole source agreement with WPS60 at a significant waste of taxpayers money. You approved this deal without shopping around or using Tom Morris to spearhead the negotiations. 

It is also apparent that there is a discrete pattern and conspiracy between the three of you since April to force the teachers to strike.

Someone has taken quite a bit of time to analyze Ficarelli's billings and the communication trail back to Batiste & Lamping. Check out this link

Good citizens of Waukegan. Time to call for an audit into these improprieties and breach of fiduciary by Administrators and Board members who sanctioned these expenditures.

Tom Morris, General Counsel, is the Ethics Officer for WPS60. Tom, get busy justifying your $235,000 paycheck.
