Why the incumbent trustees are kicked out, a resident’s point of view

Oh man and I thought I hated Oak Park, IL you should really read the article on the Oak leaves (Oak Park’s “newsletter”) it is straight to the point letter on why the village board lost the elections! You can feel the hatred in every sentence! Obviously, there are issues with the Mayor and how he is developing Oak Park, IL then oh dog poop is another thorn in the side of the residents!

Oh, this author hates basically the same shit I do, no wonder why I have readers! There was such a hatred for the incumbents of this board during the election that the residents must have come out in droves to vote. Not only that but also sat down and wrote an article analyzing why the idiots who lost the election were fools to believe that they would win. Which in turn started a great discussion in the comment section about the issues facing Oak Park, Il, at least I am not the only one who see that this village is being fleeced.

Oak Park, IL -River Forest Election results shocker

Okay the people of Oak Park, Il have surprised even me! After the general election, I was shocked! You actually did good and voted out at least three incumbents that were supported by the development groups turning Oak Park, IL into little Chicago. These candidates Dan Moroney and Deno Andrews won by better margins than the Village Manager Association backed candidates. Hopefully with residents like these in positions of power maybe, and I do say, maybe the village board of Oak Park, Il will get focused on issues that really concerns the residents like traffic, parking, etc., not just fleecing the downtown area to local developers.

So, this is one of those various instances that I must say KUDOS! to Oak Park, IL. I truly hope there is an atmosphere of transparency and communication as a result of this, fingers crossed. But until they get all the idiots off the village board I am not sure there will be major changes in directions or focus made.

Crime in River Forest and Oak Park, IL

Ah so there has been an uptick in crime in River Forest the area that is usually not touched by crime as Oak Park, Il usually is but now is getting the brunt of its isolationist policies. Both suburbs are linked together in more ways than one, and unfortunately, both are bordered heavily by poor black areas. Oak Park, Il has the Chicago Austin area and River Forest has the suburb of Maywood, I mean if I was on a board of trustees or governing body I would try to reach to these areas to see what I could do to bring some economic development to these areas so hopefully it would attract investment back into these communities and reduce crime.

But noooooo, Oak Park hides behind cula-da-sacs and River Forest hides behind a huge network of Forest Preserves as if criminals wouldn’t run through a forest, obviously, the city planners never watch a Friday the 13th film before. As the crimes are more economic based than run of the mill crazy violence. Therefore, it must be determined what are the motivators behind the criminal’s actions and there is nothing more motivating than living across the street from a bunch of self-delusional shmucks who think an address guarantees safety.

I thank god am not one of those people and I am paranoid, as the good people of Oak Park, Il like to call it, 24/7 but at least I still have all my shit. So until these burbs take the reasonable approach and help build up the communities around them the problem will always exist and problems like these will always get worse.

Construction on South Blvd another headache

There is another new development planned for South Boulevard great more traffic problems.  This is another pathway to destruction lead by the same idiot mayor who is trying to have Oak Park, Il under major construction on all major streets without a care to who it hurts. This article clearly states that the direction of this development has not taken into account the tenants of surrounding residences or businesses who would be negatively affected by this construction.

I mean shit you have a psychologist worrying about her “fragile’ patients to worries about developers abusing entitlements and flipping the property to new owners. This is what I like to call a basket full of fucking problems, and the mayor is like, not giving a shit neither is the board of trustees. What kind of soundbite is “I understand the concern, I really do..”  WTF??? That is dripping with sarcasm. I glad this shit is happening its like the people of stuck up Oak Park, Il and everyone else fooled to go along with these idiots are getting the payback for thinking they are better than everyone else. With all their progressive bullshit, with their false pretenses and tell you-what-to-do-because-I-own-a-home-fuckery.

I am glad I only rent and that the village trustees and Judas ass mayor is selling off Oak Park, Il bit by bit, they will probably sell off Hemingway’s home or museum for a high rise next! Logically how do you say you are the hometown of Frank Lloyd Wright with all these crappy tall gothic structures going up all over the place? No, you cannot, Oak Park, Il is slowly losing its identity and I am glad!

Here is the article talking about the South Blvd development:
