Mr. Big Shot, Not Your Councilman

Mr. Big Shot, Not Your Councilman

In case you haven’t heard it, it’s Super Bowl Sunday. That means you are likely in one of three groups; watching it, no interest in it, or boycotting watching the NFL for patriotic reasons.

Over recent years, the Naperville city council has had a few members trying to throw their weight around as a show of intimidation. One literally did throw his weight around when he was accused of trying ‘rough up’ or tune-up, one of Naperville’s finest police officers. Not a wise move on the councilman’s part.

A few other council members have resorted to interacting with some good folks of Naperville with the following comments:

  • “do you know who I am”
  • “I could make it easy or difficult for you”
  • “apparently you have no idea who you are talking to”
  • “I’m on the council, so that makes me right, and you wrong”

Those ‘few’ council members are no longer on the council.

Naperville doesn’t have a “Hall of Shame” for council members, but a town in Michigan does, and a councilman became a nominee for induction.

So Ed has been on the council since 1984, that’s 34 years; a prime example why Naperville’s term limits is truly a thing of beauty.

That calls for a little music.
