Nyota Figgs is currently the City Clerk of Calumet City. She has not set foot in her office since June of last year. Figgs is elected to office to fulfill the needs of residents, which means being present. But she is not.


354 days 13 hours 29 minutes 10 seconds, since Figgs has been spent a day in the clerk’s office!

Figgs is paid over $125,000 annually with a healthy expense account by the tax payers. This VERY excessive compensation structure was implemented by former Mayor Michelle Qualkenbush. One would think that Figgs would at least put in a semi-weekly appearance for the substantial sum paid to her. Figgs says that she is on medical leave, but it has now been over 5 months and she was out gathering political signatures.
