I’m on the Board of Directors of the Pierce Downer Heritage Alliance, and the Steering Committee of the Downers Grove Coalition for Managed Redevelopment. Mayor Ron Sandack appointed me to the Comprehensive Plan Ad Hoc Committee, for which I am honored to be one of eleven resident volunteers.

This site started out about Village actions over the last nine months of 2007 to take away our state given protections of the Environmental Protection Act, and the fight to keep them. It was touch and go for several months, but in the end residents came away with most of the state protections intact.
I don’t like using the word fight, but that’s pretty much what it was. Enough people thanked me for “doing my homework”, and providing information on this issue that I feel pretty positive saying people can be heard as long as they’re willing to speak up.
I was called a lot of names over the course of it, but no problems; most of the name-callers have come around to realize the village was on the wrong path and, because of our efforts, took (mostly) the right path.
Update: I helped organize the first DuPage County STEM Conference at Argonne National Labs November 13, 2012, and served as the moderator.
Update- I’m President of SALT Seniors And Law Enforcement Together. It’s been a matter of getting it back in gear.
