TREMONT WEST DOES NOT REPRESENT 96% OF RESIDENTS Submitted by jerleen1 on March 15, 2010 - 8:48am. I understand that there are some new Housing Inspectors/Code Enforcers being brought into Tremont and Ward 14.  I'm not 100% sure if that means they will be relocating the current ones.

What I have found most interesting since the Annual TWDC Meeting in January is that numbers speak for themselves.

During the Board elections for 2009, TWDC indicated a membership number of approximately 930-940.  Immediately following the unsuccessful Special Meeting in November 2009 (to change By-Laws and Charter), leaders inside the organization began purging the membership list.  Currently they profess to have a membership count of approximately 521. 

Based on the Tremont Population of 9,000 or more, this leaves TWDC only representing approximately 4% of the residents and clearly indicates an estimated drop of about a 40% in membership.  Facts speak for themselves - which means that Tremont West does not represent approximately 96% of the people in this community.

This is an indication that since block club members are also included in the TWDC membership tally and block clubs vote on community issues which also goes through Tremont West, decisions made on what is best for everyone is made by only 4% of the residents.

Since City funds (tax dollars), federal funds, grant monies and other monitary allocations are presumed to be for the entire area, why are our community leaders permitted to act on what 4% of our community thinks - especially since the by-law committee is in the process of creating a set of Policies and Procedures to hopefully be adopted by the Board, which further will be designed to deter more community participation.  The standing committees will be allowed to say who is a member, who can and cannot vote, how the committee structures will be run, etc. - perhaps even causing more loss of membership.

My question is that:  If Tremont West Development Corp is such a great organization why aren't people lining up at the door to register and become a member?  Go figure.

While I am not stating these facts in a hateful manner, I don't believe in white washing them either.
