( – The Village of Dolton, Illinois, has again attracted national attention during its monthly town hall meeting, primarily due to heated exchanges with the controversial Mayor Tiffany Henyard. Henyard faces allegations of abusing her power, including orchestrating police-led business raids as acts of retribution and misappropriating public funds for personal luxuries such as trips to Las Vegas. Recent developments saw her vetoing a board resolution that aimed to investigate her alleged financial mismanagement.

Amid these controversies, the FBI is reportedly investigating Henyard for possibly misusing her authority over the local police force. The board had sought further FBI scrutiny into her handling of municipal finances.

In response to the ongoing turmoil, Mayor Henyard heightened security at the Dolton town hall meeting, resulting in restricted access and many residents being unable to enter. However, those who managed to get through the intensified security measures voiced their complaints against Henyard, covering various issues.

A poignant moment in the meeting featured a woman criticizing Henyard for alleged financial improprieties linked to a cancer foundation associated with the mayor. This foundation, named the “Tiffany Henyard CARES Foundation,” purportedly aimed to support cancer survivors but faced scrutiny for financial opacity.

Cara Wilson, a mother who previously sued the Dolton police for fatally shooting her daughter, publicly challenged Henyard, accusing her of indifference and highlighting discrepancies in Henyard’s criminal record compared to her daughter’s clean record. Wilson’s strong words underscored her distrust and dissatisfaction with Henyard’s leadership.

The call for Henyard’s resignation was echoed by others, with one resident condemning the mayor for disgracing the community and demanding transparency regarding the town’s finances. This resident also alluded to a scandal involving an alleged sexual assault and subsequent retaliation during Henyard’s trip to Las Vegas, demanding accountability and clarity on the matter.

Critiques extended to Henyard’s overall conduct, with one individual accusing her of deceit and another supporting claims of her being labeled the “worst mayor in America.”

In her defense, Mayor Henyard criticized the media for sensationalizing Dolton’s political strife, suggesting that the coverage was aimed at generating sensational headlines. Police Chief Lewis Lacey briefly mentioned his willingness to engage with the press before concluding the meeting abruptly, citing safety concerns.
