What happened to innocent until proven guilty. We are so eager to accuse this man who gave his all to serve the people of his village. This man who helped make Niles an "All American City", who gave us the free bus that helped so many many senior citizens get around. Who helped build the Niles Senior Center that gave purpose to so many seniors around town. Shame on you.
