Alderman Arthur Denze has agreed to represent the residents of Pearl Lake Road in their fight against City Hall. Finally! Somebody willing to represent the people!
Sheila O'Malley, the mayor's chief of staff, was quoted by the Rep-Am as saying "Alderman Denze is entitled to put forward any resolution he sees fit, but the mayor has to concern himself with the safety and well-being of citizens who travel Pearl Lake Road. We will go forward with it because it needs to be done." This raises some questions for me.
Shouldn't the mayor also concern himself with the safety and well-being of citizens who LIVE on Pearl Lake Road?
WHO are these faceless citizens travelling the road? Why does the mayor care more about them than the citizens who live on the road?
Has anyone ever complained about the road being too dangerous? Have there been a lot of accidents caused by the road conditions?
I have driven on Pearl Lake Road many times, and as long as you obey the speed limit, there is no danger to the driver.
