Thanks for all the feedback on the topic of short term rentals in PR close to Park Ridge. Last night the Council unanimously voted NO on this practice. The city can continue to turn it's back on the shared economy era, but they will have to give in sooner rather than later. Short term rent...

I'd like to hear your opinions on short term room rentals in single family homes in Park Ridge. For 4 years we rented out a room in our house without a single complaint. This Monday City Council will vote whether to allow this practice to continue or not. We would appreciate your feedback.

As a member of the Maloney election team, I was really proud of the way Marty ran his campaign close to Park Ridge. It was all about truth, honesty, and transparency. The other side tried scare tactics, issuing false claims about taxes, and importing workers from outside Park Ridge not to mention getting large fina...

When you vote tomorrow you can drop off lawn signs for recycling at your polling place - or bring them later in the week until Friday in Park Ridge. Candidates can pick up signs through Friday at polling places if they want to reuse in another election.

Seeing many signs for various candidates where they should not be in Park Ridge. It is beginning to look like a " game of signs". It is not how many signs a candidate can afford to put in place but how many votes one gets. LOL

A couple of weeks ago I got a letter from the "Maine Township Vote by Mail Center", the return address was 310 Busse Hwy, PMB #317 by Park Ridge. That address is a PO box in the UPS Store on Busse Highway just east of Greenwood. It was addressed to a person who does not, nor ever have lived at my address. It had a partially filled out (the othe...

There are approximately 14, 000 to 15, 000 registered voters in Park Ridge. In a typical local election (not national, or state wide) about 20% vote. That would be around 3, 000. Of those 3, 000 approximately 80% (2, 400) are over the age of 50. These are very general numbers...

A stormwater utility (SWU) is considered to be a fair and equitable way to fund stormwater projects and would support the City’s drainage system and flood issues in Park Ridge. This item was approved by the Finance and & Budget committee on 9/26/16 by a vote of 4-3. My opponent voted against it. The item was then brought to the City Council on 10/3/16 and was approved with a...

***To be clear, my post below is not intended to take sides in Park Ridge. I sit on the D64 Board and know how difficult it is to do everything needed with the funds available to us. What is not needed, is the manipulation of facts and misrepresentation of numbers to fear mo...

The mayor does have the authority to appoint members to the zoning and planning commissions in Park Ridge. It is way more than just recusing himself when it comes time to vote on new developments.

Why I'm not going to the D64 school board meeting tonight: 1) They are voting on the #1 biggest line item in the annual budget, but we won't be allowed to see it in advance, so there's nothing to hear and no basis to comment near Park Ridge. 2) From speaking to Board members it seems to me they will vote 7-0 to approve, unless the union rank-and-file demanded changes that would make a Board member think twice. 3) Point #2 is such a remote...
