Andy has been on the library board for the last couple years and has done a fantastic job keeping the budget inline (take a look at your tax bill) and upgrading the library.
The reason why politics is so bad in FP and the surrounding areas is there aren't enough young people with fresh ideas like him. you should get out more and know your local government. He's not a token hispanic, but an involved resident concerned about our local government.

Thanks,because I've never heard of him.Too bad Dear Leader Kim Jong Peter-san has turned him into his token.Poor SOB will never know what damage he's doing to his Hispanic Community by entertaining Dear Leader.Dear Leader will drop him into the shark tank just like poor, pretty Rose,when he's done with him.Just like the last tall hispanic kid that was trying to be elected trustee,he's never been heard from again.(cue the Jaws theme music)

Andy has done a good job keeping the Library budget inline. Are you kidding me? They should have money, they redid the library and didn't fix the leaking roof. Now that makes perfect sense. He is Barrett's tool, put on the board by Barrett to give Barrett control the library board. Now Barrett wants him to be a tool on the village board, and kiss up to Andy's father in law, a former fireman. Barrett wanted father in law gone and now trying to kiss and make up.

ANDY THE TOOL! Andy start practicing the Bobble Head dance, no worries Barrett will teach it to you. ANDY THE TOOL!

Interestingly enough I have to wonder why as per "Town" on another thread here,that I've never heard any complaints or plans to eliminate prostitution from Mr.Ybarra.(Or anyone for that matter)After all his library is only steps away from a plethora of illegal , deviate,sexual activity.What are the Administrations plans on solving this issue that has,and continues, to haunt this town and its helpless children citizens.4 years of nearly nothing has been done and I'd prefer not to see 4 more.Its unconsionable that this problem and stigma has been put to the back burner for 60 + years that I can remember.Scum ,from even out of state have been caught in,(many) years past and FP has a reputation for tolerance to this crime.One could wonder if the highly touted "Crime" award was procured from a Cracker Jack box.

The FP Library board has a fiduciary responsibility to the people of FP to spend their money responsibly. Therefore, renovations and updates are carefully planned months before hand, roof leaks happen spontaneously and are repaired on an as needed basis. When the time comes to fully replace a roof it is treated as a project and needs careful consideration similar to our upgrade/renovations over the last year.

Andy was placed on the Library board based on his own merit not by Pedersen. Heís exactly what FP needs, a young smart resident who is actually concerned about the people instead of his own agenda. What candidates are you supporting? Why?

Letís keep the message board clean by stating the facts

If your roof is leaking how many days or months would you give it "careful consideration" on replacing ? If the roof has reached its end of life time frame should it be given careful consideration ? I'd like to hear an answer to the prostitution statement posed by the other person .

Barrett claims responsibility for Andy being on the library board. He is Barrett's TOOL after all. As for the roof, library employees have stated that the roof has leaked for years! Not months or days, YEARS!!! The reason the rest of village buildings are in poor condition is the lack of good judgement on repairing them. It is the boards duty to protect our investments and not delay a repair when delaying it only causes more damage. Not to smart of the board to delay roof repairs. What are they waiting for? Barrett's approval?

Since you brought up roofs there jojo a perfect example of juans leadership is why didnt he do something about the police station roof that leaked and caused so much damage it couldnt be fixed, result OSHA condemmed the whole dam building, now we pay thanks to juans leadership abilities.

When will you ever tell the whole story ? Juan was serving with other trustees such as , Cheryl Mc , John J ,who incidentally are still board members . So , stop with the garbage . It seems to end up in your backyard , whenever you post . Why don't you call them out ?
