Snollygoster (Def.): A politician who puts politics ahead of principle
On April 4th the good people of Lyons, McCook, Stickney, Forest View and Brookfield will be voting to elect school board members for Lyons Elementary School District 103. I endorse Sharon Anderson, Shannon Johnson and Marge Hubacek.
Why? Because for the past 2 years the board members that snollygoster Chris Getty put in place haven’t made decisions that are good for children. In fact, they made decisions that are good for Getty, which are ultimately bad for children.
When you hire Getty’s buddy at $1,000+ per day and hire a bunch of unneeded custodians you are taking money away from children. That’s what snollygosters do – they make decisions that are good for themselves and not for the good of the children.
If the people of Lyons want to continue voting Getty in as mayor, that’s their choice. But do the people of Stickney, Forest View, McCook and Brookfield want Getty and his henchmen to continue making poor decisions regarding their children? I hope not. I would urge them to vote for Anderson, Johnson, and Hubacek. Their commitment is to the children, not to the politicians.
