If you every want to make an issue of something, just start talking about it, no matter what it is. Naperville is not going down the road towards bankruptcy. It can’t happen right? Well it could, but it’s not, correct? Yes the electric and water utilities are borrowing money from each other, but we’re OK overall right?
Downtown Naperville has had kerfuffles break loose late at night and early morning occasionally turning into chaos and mayhem resulting in pandemonium, but Naperville doesn’t need the National Guard to maintain peace does it? Maybe the city council needs to pass a resolution stating that downtown Naperville is safe and family friendly.
Just keep creating and passing resolutions stating the obvious, otherwise known as socially acceptable non-productive behavior on the part of the Naperville city council.
Naperville city councilwoman Becky Anderson wants Naperville to make a public statement in the form of a resolution that Naperville is a “welcoming city”, that residents and visitors alike are accepted within the city limits. That begs the question, since when has Naperville not been a welcoming city? What happened and when did it happen, that requires a formal resolution to prove to all that we are good folks living in a great city. What exactly does Anderson know that we don’t know?
Councilwoman Patty Gusting chimed in by saying, “they (people) know we are a welcoming city, we embrace everyone, we are so happy…it’s fantastic, we love being here”. OK, now I’m beginning to get worried, what’s going on in Naperville that we have to shout from the top of the Municipal Center, that all is well in Naperville. Since when did Naperville start going bad that we have to resort to a resolution to prove otherwise?
Naperville is a welcoming city, and Watchdog can prove it. Within the last few weeks Naperville police apprehended a couple of ‘bad dudes’, as our President would refer to them as, on separate offenses but using the same weapon of choice; a car to try and run over people. Not very nice behavior to say the least. Congratulations to Naperville’s finest for making these apprehensions. Now this is where the proof comes into play, that Naperville is truly a welcoming city. One of the ‘bad dudes’ was turned over to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, and reportedly faces deportation. Congratulaltions to the Naperville Police Department for making this happen, and congratulations to the City of Naperville for proving they are a Welcoming City by welcoming the U.S. Department of Homeland Security to our fine city. Councilwoman Anderson, we don’t need another empty resolution. We simply just need to follow the law and let local enforcement do what they do best; enforce the law.
