According to Park Ridge Public Works, there are collection bins at all Park Ridge polling places into which you can put your old yard signs. Nice efforts by the Go Green organization and Newcomers Club. Here is a photo from the PW building collection site this morning.

The other side tried scare tactics, issuing false claims about taxes, and importing workers from outside Park Ridge not to mention getting large fina...

A fellow Park Board member is sending this to the newspaper after being targeted in a mailing from two candidates for Park Board - Jim O'Donnell and Jim Janak: I received a campaign mailer for the Park District election supporting two candidates for the Park Board in Park Ridge. It was funded by "Cook County Integrity PAC". Why is a Maine Township Republican right wing Tea Party PAC funded with $10, 000 in donations from a non-resident getting involved in a NON-PARTISAN Park ...

I was pleasantly surprised that Candidate Marty Maloney's signs are now back in their original place near Park Ridge. Out in the public space at Park Ridge Pointe both candidates are now represented fairly.

Asking people to pay tuition for public school is a terrible idea in Park Ridge. It goes against the very idea of public school. Either Park Ridge offers it to everyone or they don't. There are already full day options at the private schools. It will create a second class of stude...

Gov. Rauner vetoes automatic voter registration in Park Ridge. He is concerned about voter fraud. The greatest voter fraud is the Republican's claim of significant voter fraud. This undermines our democracy.
