Have you driven the streets lately? Have you hit a pothole? Have we become the pothole capital of Illinois? Have you seen the downtown plan to demolish 22 "historic buildings"? Have you watched the majority of the board give more than $10 million dollars to one developer to build a high-rise apartment for the affluent? Have you seen your tax bill? Have you watched Channel 6 when the president cuts citizens off in mid sentence?

Have you seen the report that wants to knock down the Pancake House at Forest and Lake? Have you seen the report that wants the Westgate Tudor buildings to be bulldozed for a street? Have you imagined the loss of Marion Street Mall to cars? Have you wondered who is really benefiting from the four year Whiteco fiasco?

When you elect the New Leadership Party candidates: Bob Milstein (President), Martha Brock, Geoff Baker, Greg Marsey (Trustees) and Sharon Patchak Layman (Clerk), you will have accountable, transparent and open government that respects its citizens.

With the New Leadership Party you will have leaders that repair the streets and that refuse to give money away. Under the NLP, citizens will get information from the clerk quickly and within the required legal time frames. With the New Leadership Party businesses will be treated fairly, openly and with respect. With the NLP all business districts will get economic attention. With the NLP our partner agency the Oak Park Development Corporation will be involved as a major player in the development of all of Oak Park.
