Tom MacMillan what is important to myself is where each candidate for Village President stands on Police defunding. All candidates should be on zoom debating about it and have it open to the public. I do not think that will happen

Bill. I would expect that most of the people in town agree with you. Let's vote and see. Why would any of our Trustees want to avoid a vote? They want to grab and control the money in the police budget. Maybe buy some training courses from the Nova Collective? The same people selling training programs are also funding and organizing many of the candidates who somehow want to defund. Connect the dots.

Tom MacMillan I would not defund or reallocate money from the Police Department budget and would like to understand why anyone would think that is a good idea and a comment board is a good place to start

When you're right, you're right, Tom. I say, don't loudly bellow about the correctness of a proposed policy, then bitch and moan and attack the intentions of people who then. say, "OK, let's ask the people to vote on it." Let's have an advisory referendum and see where the chips fall.

Trustee Arti is afraid to let the voters have a say. She would rather heavily promote an idea, have a dozen people send some emails, and then pretend everyone wants it. Let's ask everyone. The best time for the vote would have been when we were hunkered down while protesters trashed Chicago, hoping a thin line of cops would be able to protect the town as business were being boarded up and the L lines were shut down. But the next election works.

I didn't often agree with Ms Boutet, but appreciate that she put in the effort. In a Trustee group that contains some really rude and increasingly dangerous people, who can blame her for not wanting to deal anymore with Arti or Susan. A BnB in Washington State sounds pretty exciting by comparison. Thank you for your service.

You just triggered another old song from my musical memory vault Max- "Ramble On."

Ahhh, the irony, Max.
