Here’s a gem of a series of comments by a concerned citizen:
“Please query Alderman Elizabeth Chappell about her opinion regarding the destruction of 833 Wisconsin Street and the demise of the National Historic District. When I asked her what her opinion was she replied, “I have nothing to say.” This is HER Aldermanic district and ward, and she has “nothing to say???” Chappell needs to review her duties as a city official, and the responsibility she has to her constituents.”
“Hi Mr. Strauss,
Thanks for your reply. I have spoken with three other residents, one as recently as this morning, Saturday, August 7th, that have reached out to Elizabeth, and have received the same response that I did. They are absolutely livid. I hope that you ask her what her opinion is on the demise of the historic district, and the future of the dangerous comprehensive plan change that is about to be voted on, and will quickly multiply throughout the city. If you do, I would be interested to hear what her reply to you is, and whether she is voting yes or no on the issue that her constituents are so adamantly opposing.
Those two comments, made on different days to the online site, were made by one of Ms. Chappell’s constituents and it might be of great interest for her to take an interest.
Quite possibly, the worst criticism that can be made of a member of representative government is a lack of care about what the voters who put he or she into office might think.
Jim Sieg and his “One Man Band” performed again in the front courtyard of the Geneva Java Coffee Shop on Saturday night. The positive response has been huge. Crowds have overwhelmed the outdoor seating, and stayed into the late evening hours every time this group (it’s actually a group of guys) has performed. Jim will be back out in front of the Geneva Java strutting his stuff every Saturday night, from five to nine. Stop by, it’s free, and you will love how well he and his group entertain you.
