The funny thing is Oak Park, Il as clean as the residents act like it is, is dirty as Chicago, they think they are better, unfortunately, they are the same, maybe even worse. Now, the residents have an actual chance to change the issues behind redevelopments around Oak Park, Il and the constant selling out that is going on around the village. One such example is the 18-story development at the corner of Lake and Forest, in the article below lists more of the details, however, it seems the village trustees are so corrupt that lawyers are needed to tell these trustees not to talk to the developers connected to this development.
Therefore, these trustees do not show up to meetings for questions on the development, come face to face with voters, when they obviously are in discussion with the developers. This shows the level of corruption that this village has that the trustees do not want to discuss issues important to the residents but rather stay close to where the money is.
With an election coming up on April 4th it is a perfect opportunity for the people of Oak Park, IL to shed the skin of these sneaky snakes, however if the human behavior of Oak Park, Il is any indication this opportunity to rid Oak Park, IL of these money grubbing bastards with slip through the fingers like sand. Oak Park, IL can never seem to separate itself from its past in a good way, but they sure could sell it off.
