Letter: Welcome to Edgar County Watchdogs

To the Editor:

Speaking as an alum (MS Finance 96) and ex-employee of Northern Illinois University, I welcome with open arms the arrival of the Edgar County Watchdogs to NIU and DeKalb.

The two founding members of this group made their first DeKalb appearance at the most recent NIU Board of Trustees meeting, suggesting to the Trustees that they use the group as a free resource to possibly identify and, if need be, help correct any systemic problems.  In my opinion, a nonpolitical/nonbiased offer of free should always be welcome to taxpayers. 

However, considering NIU Administration’s two slogans of accountability, clarity, and transparency and ethically inspired leadership, there may be little for this group to look at or expose within our University.

Regardless, it is a breath of fresh air to add to the discussion and I wish them well.
