Wait. What? Oh. Nevermind. Carry on, carry on

Monday, Sep 30, 2019

* So, I was skimming through this press release today

Building on a strong team of diverse experts in their fields, Governor JB Pritzker announced the following individuals have agreed to serve in his administration:

ABRAHAM LINCOLN PRESIDENTIAL LIBRARY AND MUSEUM BOARD OF TRUSTEES

Nothing really stood out at first. And then I scrolled down to the fifth name on the list

Martin Sandoval

I almost choked. What the heck? Are they insane???

* Then I kept reading

Martin Sandoval, C.P.A., will serve as a Business Administration Expert on the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum Board of Trustees. With over 25 years of experience in business, strategic planning and financial management, Sandoval is the founding partner of Compass Associates. He previously was a Director of Corporate Development of Sara Lee Corporation and did similar work for organizations such as the McDonald’s Corporation and Arthur Andersen. Sandoval is a member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants and the Illinois CPA Society, and he has also served as Vice President for the National Museum of Mexican Art, Treasurer of the Little Village Chamber of Commerce and Vice Chair of the Hispanic Alliance for Career Enhancement. Sandoval earned his Master of Science in Business Administration and Bachelor of Science in Commerce from DePaul University.

    The curse of having a common name. I faced an allegation of stealing a student’s pencil in grade school. When brought in front of the accuser, the response was, not him, it was another Norseman.


  2. - Ron Burgundy - Monday, Sep 30, 19 @ 4:04 pm:

    Well, I suppose putting “Not THAT Martin Sandoval!” in the press release would be a bit gauche.


  3. - Steve - Monday, Sep 30, 19 @ 4:05 pm:

    That’s it. I totally sold on higher taxes in Illinois. Marty represents the best Illinois has to offer. Governor Pritzker couldn’t be all wrong.

    ===That’s it. I totally sold on higher taxes in Illinois. Marty represents the best Illinois has to offer. Governor Pritzker couldn’t be all wrong.===

    Narrator: It’s a different Martin Sandoval


  5. - A guy - Monday, Sep 30, 19 @ 4:11 pm:

    poor guy should change his name to anything. Though there are a few surnames to avoid.


  6. - Oswego Willy - Monday, Sep 30, 19 @ 4:11 pm:

    ===Arthur Andersen===

    With the Cardinals clinching against the Cubs I hope Jon enjoyed that.


  7. - Steve - Monday, Sep 30, 19 @ 4:11 pm:

    OW

    I know ! Illinois is a talented state with brimming with people with similar names. I challenge any state to have a bench as deep as Illinois.


  8. - ChrisB - Monday, Sep 30, 19 @ 4:18 pm:

    @A guy

    “Why should I change my name? He’s the one who sucks.”

    -Michael Bolton. No, the other one.

    ==Narrator: It’s a different Martin Sandoval==

    You should have waited to see how long it took him to figure it out on his own, OW. I’d have imagined we’d be seeing commenter Steve cluelessly mention this for at least a couple weeks, i.e., “…..ever since Pritzker named that crook Sandoval to the library board of trustees” or “why should we believe a guy that appointed a criminal like Sandoval to the ALPLM board”

    ===Illinois is a talented state with brimming with people with similar names. I challenge any state to have a bench as deep as Illinois.===

    So you’re trolling yourself?

    You’re proud of a self-own.

    Yikes.

    ===You should have waited to see how long it took him to figure it out on his own, OW. I’d have imagined we’d be seeing commenter Steve cluelessly mention this for at least a couple weeks===

    lol, I’d like to think - Steve -‘s self own here and not realizing it is pretty tasty within weeks of - Steve - forgetting its not the same person.

    Your point is well made, however, lol

    Be well.

    - Lester Holt’s Mustache -

    Marty has been charged with nothing. Let’s not hurt his reputation .

  12. - DuPage Saint - Monday, Sep 30, 19 @ 4:33 pm:

    The governor should have appointed Paul Simon. First of all he is a heck of a song writer and singer and is well know to the people of Illinois for his service here and in Washington


  13. - Been There - Monday, Sep 30, 19 @ 5:13 pm:

    It use to take me forever to get through TSA or through customs. Common names can be a problem when it comes to security. But just bad timing for the CPA. At least they didn’t said Marty as that’s how most news stories printed the raid. But that probably won’t help with Google.


  14. - Concerned Dem - Monday, Sep 30, 19 @ 6:19 pm:

    Mike Madigan (of Champaign Co) must have been too busy for the appointment.


  15. - Oswego Willy - Monday, Sep 30, 19 @ 6:24 pm:

    ===Mike Madigan (of Champaign Co) must have been too busy for the appointment.===

    Top shelf. Well done.


  16. - Southern Illinois Mayor - Monday, Sep 30, 19 @ 9:44 pm:

    “How many J.B.s do you know, then throw in Pritzker, it’s not like I am a Jones,” said the governor.
