I'm endorsing John Hedges for Oak Park village president.

I had the pleasure to serve with John on the village board, and he's the right man for the job. His long public service in Oak Park makes him uniquely suited to the challenges of local governance. He's got the knowledge, experience and good sense to make village government more efficient and effective. He works well with his board colleagues and village staff, building relationships of mutual respect. He's insightful, respectful and purposeful … basic requirements for the role of village president.

I hope he'll earn your vote next Tuesday.

Greg Marsey

Oak Park village trustee (2005-2009)

Hedges isn't Pope

This is a strong endorsement for John Hedges from someone who clashed repeatedly with David Pope when they were both on the Board. If Hedges were just another Pope, then Greg would never have written this letter!

you were not a good trustee. your endorsement should mean nothing to anyone who reads it, save your vma sister and brother. now go back to your downers grove jimmy john's and get me a #1 easy mayo. BTW why didn't you open you JJ in Oak park? there was none her at the time of yours opening?

Thank you Greg for your independent voice! You certainly can't be accused of being "VMA"!
