As you hopefully read on Page 8 of this week’s issue of The Glenview Lantern, the upcoming Glenview Village Board candidates forum hosted by the League of Women Voters of Glenview/Glencoe will have a glaring absence.


I am not sure how Ben sitting out this forum benefits his interests. I for one wanted to hear what he wanted to say.

You see, in 1992 I ran for the State Legislature in Missouri as a 23-year old college student at the University of Missouri. I was taking on a well entrenched incumbent. I was convinced I could win and worked hard to win. I spoke at every forum I could, knowing that the incumbency deck was stacked against me.

If I could speak to Ben now, I would urge him to participate in every available forum and share his vision. I am not a fan of tilting at windmills but have done so many times when principle ruled my day. The chances of Ben knocking on my door and convincing me to his view are small. Showing me the courage to show up at a large forum would show me the seriousness of his cause.

Go get em Ben!!
