I wonder if all villages or municipalities have problems with their village managers that we seem to have in Oak Park.

I refer more specifically to the current manager who has been directly involved in one feckless situation after another — loan, contract, money mismanagement, etc., etc.

Now apparently he wants the village-owned house that he has lived in rent-free for years given to him [Oak Park village manager may soon be homeless, News, Dec. 1]. He only later decided to pay a rent that was far below the rate for such a house.

In my recollection of the past 40 years, I cannot remember another village manager so inept. Wake up, Oak Park! We should be able to do better.
