As a taxpayer of Oak Park, I would like to thank all the village employees and the village board for a thorough and transparent investigation of this matter. [PeopleSoft probe finds no fraud, but mistakes, news, March 4] I am glad that it was looked into and found to have no fraudulent activities or intent. There have been so many people who have “jumped the gun” and convicted certain village employees and board members with out due process.

Now that this matter has been looked into and resolved, we can move forward as a village in a professional manner in which we are known to be. I am glad that the special subcommittee of trustees recognized that there were mistakes made and improvements can be made. After this investigation, the village will become a wiser and stronger enterprise because of it.
