Ray has done nothing wrong. He is a great man and contributed more than most have to this community.

It is Bolingbrook's loss and soon another towns gain.

If you ask him he will not even take the credit for what Bolingbrook Park District has accomplished. He says it was a TEAM effort. He is a man of character and faith.

Good Luck Ray in your new job.

He has not been back working for the Bolingbrook Park District.

He is an honest,hard working and creative man that had a vision for Bolingbrook and all Bolingbrook residents have benefitted. Just look around at your Nature Center, Parks and Facilities.

Any town that hires him will benefit for years to come.

After that (expected) segway OFF TOPIC (why am I even surprised???), I was looking forward to hearing all of the 'facts' that former employee was going to share with us.

We could really use a 'slap upside the head/shut the hell up' judge it icon...not that it would do any good.

If you are all done bickering and whining now maybe you can absorb this:

I believe Ray's kid was arrested for drugs very recently. Maybe he is spending time trying to help his kid and that situation out.

I work for Ray for nearly a decade and all i can say is that it's about time. He might have done some good at the beginning, but he started to run the place as if it was his own personal playground, and all of us lowly employees suffered for it. I can give plenty of examples if you would like...
Could you please give examples. He just got hired at Park Ridge and already were suffering. He cut our employee picnic(which by the way is the only staff event part time employees are invited). And he stopped all raises! He seems like a weasel

Yup. He runs with a whole circle of heroin heads in Bolingbrook. He's already had one friend die from an OD, and a second friend who has had two close calls with OD's recently. BPD and other agencies keep arresting the circle, but they keep getting let right back out by the Courts. No treatment or jailtime either. So the cycle will continue. And before anyone says Heroin or drugs is a "victimless" crime, well who do you think is breaking into cars, stealing GPS units and radios, etc.? Yup, dope addicts stealing to get their money. They are a drain and scourge of society.

From what I have heard Park Ridge employees and staff are very happy with Ray. He has no control over raise freezes. That would be the Park board idiot. In fact I believe ya'll just got a bonus. Park Ridge is in he dark ages and needed someone with Ray's abilities and patience to clean up their act. So his son has a drug problem. Not a reflection of Ray as a father or his ability to run a park district. His son needs help and your prayers. If you think Ray is a weasel then you don't truly know him. Ray is a man of faith and character.
