In response to "Milstein's not the same
Bob she remembers," Feb. 16
Among Oakee Parkee's magnificent mob
I found our illustrious Trustee Bob.
Is there a monetary reward
For seeing him at the village board?
You can watch and hear him on TV cable
A twinkle in his eye at the horseshoe table.
I agree he's open-hearted and warm
A sense of helpful humor is his form.
Supportive and spreading caring cheer
That's our trustee, this non-elusive dear.
Shall we call Ethel's letter a desperate act
Not to be confused with finding fact?
Rumor has it a ghost writer did this dastardly deed
And hoodwinked Lady Ethel to plant the sarcastic seed.
Has smoke clouded issues for partisan folk
Perhaps it's rose-colored glasses reflecting a joke.
A "feel good survey" from village staff's made-to-order mold
My neighbors, friends, small businesses have yet to be polled.
Residents' answers to tough questions remain
Whiteco, TIF, demolition, higher taxes cause pain.
I await my prize in New Leadership Party's space
That's 405 ½ South Boulevard, our candidates' base.
At that address, greet Robert Milstein, please knock
And meet Baker, Marsey, Patchak-Layman and Brock.
April 5 is the election date
Vote for the NLP's selected slate.
Brochures, buttons, yard and window signs, take note
For these and precinct information, call 660-VOTE
