How not to fight for the people, Lakemoor's new Gravel Pits
Today's decision by the Lakemoor Village Board to approve gravel pit expansions has done nothing but strengthen my resolve to be a community advocate. I know not everyone agrees with all my opinions, but if the community turned out to show overwhelming opposition to my position; I can promise I would respect the decision of the community even if it went against my own personal views. After the board's decision NOT to ask a single question about the myriad of concerns up in the air regarding noise volume, silica pollution, berm height, insurance for long term commitments which can be withdrawn from, and potential aquifer pollution; I can promise I would absolutely vote against ANY policy until EVERY citizen's concerns are adequately addressed and answered. I will always welcome, and even want, criticism and input from members of the community. If you have a concern in the workplace about back pay, harassment, safety practices, or anything else; but fear a backlash, please come to me. If you need someone to appear in court to testify for you, please come to me. If there is any local meeting you need support at to help turn out a crowd, to help draw more attention, or to raise concerns on behalf of the community; please come to me. I am always available to be contacted via email at email@example.com, on twitter @Aaron4Science, on Facebook through the page Aaron4Science, through my personal Facebook account Aaron Z Goldberg, over the phone at 815-861-5110 (please leave a voice mail or text message). The job of a representative of the people is to represent the people. If the people are not satisfied, neither am I.
