Determining whether or not an individual qualified as a “resident” has been a complicated issue for Illinois courts over the years.[6] The Maksym decision has seemingly resolved the question and to do so has announced what is now the controlling test to determine whether an individual has established and maintained residency:
[I]n assessing whether the candidate has established residency, the two required elements are:(1) physical presence, and (2) an intent to remain in that place as a permanent home.

Alternatively, the majority gave an example of acts by a candidate that would show the candidate abandoned residency:
For instance, if an Illinois resident accepts a permanent job with an out-of-state corporation, purchases a house in a new state, moves his or her family into the new house, moves all of his or her belongings out of the old house and into the new one, and then rents out the old house on a one-year lease with a right to renew, it clearly could be said that this was an abandonment of the Illinois residency.[11]
Thus, the Illinois Supreme Court has established a new test for determining whether or not an individual is a “resident” of a municipality. That test begins by determining whether the candidate has established residency through physical presence. Once residency is established, residency is presumed to continue unless the contesting party can prove by the candidate’s actions that the candidate has abandoned that residence.

Who would you rather have on the board, a part-time resident lawyer, who speaks his mind and presents an informed viewpoint when he is at the meetings, or a slacker retiree who is frequently confused about the issues? These guys came in as partners and they wanted to take over everything and it all crumbled. It almost doesn't matter if the guy is flying back and forth all the time. At least he knows what he is talking about. It's amazing when you stop buying drinks what happens to your support.

If the law is against you, argue the facts. If the facts are against you, argue the law. If both the law and the facts are against you, pound on the table and yell like hell. So just keep yelling Rabbit.

He does not even own a house. How can he relate to those of us who pay thru the nose.
I hear hear he lived in his adoptive mothers basement.

If he doesn't reside in Chicago Ridge then he shouldn't be on the board. He flies back for the meetings and then flies back to Texas for his new business. He should resign as Trustee.

The presence of illegal aliens does five injuries to the concept of interclass mobility necessary for the citizens of this republic.

First, it decreases the market clearing wage for the jobs they take. These jobs would be available to our own citizens and legal aliens at a higher wage rate. The latter would be passed through to end purchaser of goods and services.

Second, it raises the cost of government -- the latter having to provide additional social serices of the last resort.

Third, it affects prosperity through the export of cash wages directly to the home country, affecting the was through of the money supply.

Fourrth, it keeps our own people on the welfare rolls burdening the public.

Fifth, it creates enclaves of special interests supported by their legal counterparts in the name of solidarity. In so doing it slows the assimilation of our new legal immigrants into American society.

In Texas, a “residence” is the place where you normally live, live most of the time, or return to after temporary absences. A “domicile” is your true, fixed, and permanent home. If either your residence or domicile is in Texas, you meet this requirement for a DL or ID.
For example, a college student may reside in another state while at school, but still have
a Texas domicile if his or her parents live here.

Mayor or President, Clerk, Treasurer and Trustee: One-year residency in the municipality preceding the Consolidated Election. If a person (i) is a resident of a municipality immediately prior to the active duty military service of that person or that person's spouse,(ii) resides anywhere outside of the municipality during that active duty military service, and (iii) immediately upon completion of that active duty military service is again a resident of the municipality, then the time during which the person resides outside the municipality during the active duty military service is deemed to be time during which the person is a resident of the municipality for purposes of determining the residency requirement.

My issue is not with his residency. My issue is that he spends all his time and energy and efforts whining at meetings and then disappearing. Being a drunk at the local bars on Saturday nights doesn’t count for being involved in the community. For anyone to say that only Davies can do this trustee job is crazy because he has misrepresented unrepresented and non-represented the Village. I don't think elections really matter.
What does matter is that you have a politician like this that is just collecting a check.
Why has he been invisible in the community ever since he got elected?
It doesn't matter what brilliant strategy that someone uses to get elected, what matters is that only that he has represented our community poorly.

Invisible? Not everyone has to be on center stage. Some people just show up to work. He is not trying to be all things to all people

The Illinois Supreme court said that abandonment of residency is a question of intent. Okay, selling your home, moving your family and starting a business 5 states away and commuting to be with them regularly shows clear intent to make Chicago Ridge a secondary concern. If his family was planning on coming back or if he was building a new home here, there might not be any question but starting a business in Texas to diversify? This guy said it was too far to commute from Orland but he commutes to Texas? Just tell the truth. Oh wait...he is too smart to tell the truth.

As long as he is at his own Performance Party fundraiser coming soon. Good luck to running mates Jack, Lynn and Brad.
He can always catch the red eye flight first thing next morning to get home.
