History matters, and so does having a senior board member

I am disappointed that Village President David Pope did not recognize the significance and impact that the inclusion of the wisdom of a historian, an elder statesperson, for want of a better term, would have added to our Oak Park Village Board of Trustees in these times of turmoil, change, and new beginnings in our village.

But, I am not disappointed with the selection of Elizabeth Brady who is a proven citizen with many fine qualifications that will serve us well in the role she has to play as a trustee on our Board. Let us always keep in mind, however, that "history matters" a great deal and if we do not learn from the past despite its superficial changes, as a civilization, "we are, in deed, condemned to repeat our mistakes."
