Kincaid Still Has Village President, For Now

At least some members of the small village of Kincaid are tired of the attention their otherwise, quiet community is receiving.

First, the board of trustees fired their police chief for using city employees and equipment to work on his house.  The Illinois State Police are still conducting an investigation into allegations former Police Chief Richard has kept several tools and weapons that belong to the village.

Then, their village president was arrested for violating orders of protection, possession of a controlled substance, and now faces official misconduct charges.  President Doug Thomas has refused to step down.

Trustee Bill Davis hopes the wheels of justice turn quickly.

“I just hope we get everything done, get everything through, regardless.  If he’s guilty, the court will find him (Thomas) guilty.  If he’s not, we’ll get through,” Davis says.

Trustees refused to call for President Doug Thomas’ removal at Monday night’s village board meeting.  Their village attorney advised the board to wait until Thomas criminal cases are resolved.
