I'll never forget the outpouring of love that was shown to our neighbors in the Village when this young officer was gunned down and his comrades so desperately tried to save him.
Now, a year later we install a board member who, if judged by her public comments on FB is a cop hating racist.
Ms. Bryant, you were appointed by four tonight. Next April thousands of Granite City residents will have their voices heard and you'll be a very short-term member. I hope you realize you were used.
And as for the four who supposedly searched a field of candidates, only to come up with this hateful woman, you too will feel the wrath of the ballot box.
Dennis Wilmsmeyer, Erica Venne, Linda Knogel, you achieved your goal, but it did not go un-noticed. As for the fourth vote, he's not running again, or he would be listed here as well.
I pray that I live until April so I can work against these people in the next election. One more year dear Lord, one more year.
