Constitutional Right to Candidacy

The American Constitution outlines the mechanisms by which each natural-born citizen is entitled to certain unalienable rights and liberties.  One of these is the Constitutional Right to Candidacy, which basically allows any US Citizen to run for political office under the freedoms and liberties afforded to him or her by the US Constitution. Any violation […]

Liberty Song

I found this song and thought it was particularly relevant. “Come, join hand in hand, brave Americans all And rouse your bold hearts at fair Liberty’s call. No tyrannous acts shall suppress your just claim Or stain with dishonour America’s name. Chorus In freedom we’re born and in freedom we’ll live. Our purses are ready. […]

Freedom/Liberty vs. Social Responsibility

I’ve been thinking about this topic quite a bit lately, particularly as it relates to COVID 19 cases.

Addditionally, the Declaration Of Independence affords us the right to “life, liberty, and the pursuit of […]

I’d Like to Meet You!

At the impetus of the Village, Mandel did hire a third party […]

Village Fiscal Management

There needs to be increasing transparency and better communication with all citizens regarding the Fiscal Management of the Village. I do believe that while the Village has been fairly fiscally responsible over the years, the recent expenditures (mainly the Development Plan) have been alarming. In general, coupled with the SSND project, I think we’re not […]

Daylighting of Underwood Creek

I think this is as close to a “no-brainer” as possible. This is a clear win for the Elm Grove Village. I read and reviewed the correspondence and Public Comments re: this issue, including those from Women’s Guild President Wynia-Smith. I’d like to quote and echo directly the comments from Mr. Robert Reineke: “I’d like […]
