Phil Kadners column appears five times a week on Page 2 of the print edition of the SouthtownStar.
He believes columnists should advocate for readers and their communities. So he has not only championed the causes of individuals doing battle against big business and big government, but he has battled for a new building on behalf of the Crisis Center for South Suburbia, fought for construction of a permanent shelter for the homeless in the Southland, and successfully campaigned for the creation of a public access counselor in the Illinois attorney generals office, a lawyer who will actually help citizens who want information about what their government is doing.

Then have Kadner explain why you whinny little political wannabe's resigned in a snit. Thend have him explain why it was never going to be a "rebate check" but a tax credit on the tax bill.
I hear Ed is planning a run for township trustee. Good luck because you will need it.
You promised me a "rebate check" now I want it!

Sorry Mad Senior. I worked hard to prevent the board from abating money back to you. Why you ask? I will tell you why.
1. I have a GED (so I'm an expert on schools)
2. I don't and never have had kids in the school. So I really care about the kids.
3. I'm a Governmet PayCheck Millinioare
4. 51 years old got the Chicago Ridge Vilage Board to vote to let me retire early and get 80% of my salary for life.
5. Plus the village taxpayers give me a 3% pay raise every year.
6. Plus the village taxpayers gave me a bonus check for 45,000 dolars.
7. Plus the village pays for my health insurance.
8. Plus I get a check for being a Village Trustee.
9. Plus I get a check for being a Worth Township Trustee.
So as you can see there was just NO WAY I could support any money being abated back to the TaxPayers.
O by the way vote for me to Mayor when the time comes. I need another PAYCHECK.
Since: Aug 10

I hate Ed Moody, He spends his own money in the village to promote issues he believes in. He runs for Office that don't earm him a paycheck. He spends time going door to door. I just hate him so much. He gives greedy pigs like me a bad name.

I've seen his DKS (Door Knocking Strutt) and it's got style, charisma and class. A lot of it is all low but it's still class.
Ain't none of you going to be able to move like Eddie, I want to move like Eddie, I want to move like Eddie!!

Thats true we hear all the latest songs at Trustee Grove's bar. He is so upset at Ed (not his busboy Storch) Ed Moody who they are all afraid might run for something. You know the Ed who actually does good things for the village.
