What are the requirements for becoming a trustee in Melrose Park? Do you have to have a certain level of education? Reside in MP for a certain amount of time? Receive a number of votes? What I don't know?
Or do you just have to be "connected" to the right people and kiss someones ass?
Just asking, thats all.

OK The saga continues.......... I was doing some digging and from what I was told by some current MP residents is that trustee Lomeli let his head get too big for his own good. On a nice sunny day our beloved trustee was a some kind of ball game, cheering on one of his children in some collegiate sport. Trustee Lomeli apparently became upset at an umpire with a call against his very own. Trustee Lomeli then, with wonton disreguard for the safety and good example to the children present, did strike said umpire upon his person. This resulted in trustee Lomeli being arrested and charged with some violation of the Illinois criminal code. Blah blah blah and in court trustee Lomeli admitted his sin and apologized to said umpire. The result was a black mark upon the good name if trustee Lomeli and his position as a Melrose Park Village Trustee. Of course this could not be good for the village, a person serving the needs of the citizens,( and some non citizens) with a bad mark. Quickly as you can say fagetdabouttit, he resigned or was replaced, and promptly forgotten by his peers on the village board!
So there, thats what I heard, feel free to correct my information, or add to it in any way. Thank you and God Bless America!

Mr.Lomeli was cheering on his son during a melrose park gaels football game, when the.coach on the other team was blabbering about his son calling him names such as fatass, scrub etc. Mr. Lomeli then told the coach to stop and the.coach continued which led to a parent defending his child and a fight.broke out, lomeli was not handcuffed and community service was issued and also court charges , he then resigned . So "ex melrose parker " get your facts straight !!!! immature person

Lomeli was and is a great guy. I worked with him on several occasions and he is a descent man. Very down to earth person. Only he knows what he had to endure being one of the first Latino trustees in MP. I'm sure that wasn't easy! Leave him alone!

Now I know this is not true, because his grandson is only 3 or 4 years old and plays peewee baseball, so they don't play real games, kids most of the time play with the dirt on the floor! Unless he has another grandson that's older, but I know this child was not called on any base! I know this as a matter of fact!

Mp14-, You must be family because anybody that is not really don't give a s*** about that guy! He had his opportunity to do something when he was an elected official and he did nothing for the community. As a matter of fact none of our elected officials at the village volunteer Their time They get compensated with our tax dollars. These people are all about themselves they always have been and always will be. And no I'm not part of any campaign I just think melrose is headed in the wrong direction as long as a corrupted or incompetent administration is in there. take it how you want and stop crying about Ruben!
