— Resolution calling for Ford Heights library audit sparks contentious debate in House – Angela Underwood (DIERSEN: What do you know about Ford Heights and the south suburbs? Rep. William Davis (D-Homewood) says that Ives sits “in her ivory tower in Wheaton where they have a ton of businesses and a lot of opportunity” and that Ives “has no idea of the true problems that exist” in his district and that Ives “has never even been to the communities” in his district and that Ives should “leave my communities out of her mouth” and that until Ives is ready to come to the table and talk about helping his district, she should remain silent and that “Can you do that, I don’t think you can?” I lived in the south suburbs 1948-1976. I worked in Chicago Heights 1964-1966 and 1970-1972. I worked in Park Forest 1966-1969. I worked in Harvey and Joliet 1972-1974. In addition to Ford Heights, Rep. Thaddeus Jones (D-Calumet City) represents Crete where I lived 1948-1972 and where my brother continues to live in a home that I have half ownership in. The real estate taxes on that home are about 10% of market value. I delivered major appliances to homes in Ford Heights for Firestone Stores 1970-1972. I collected delinquent federal taxes in Ford Heights 1972-1973.)
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A debate over a resolution directing the auditor general to perform an assessment of the Ford Heights Public Library District brought harsh words during House debate May 10. “This will allow the current board to have a health audit,” Rep. Thaddeus Jones (D-Calumet City) said of the resolution, HR843. However, the discussion for a clean audit turned ugly after Rep. Jeanne Ives (R-Wheaton) shared her particular concern for the south suburbs and Cook County, where property taxes are reaching up to 5 and 10 percent in property values. “You are seeing a continuing decline in services including police and fire protection,” Ives said. Rep. William Davis (D-Homewood) did not like Ives talking about his turf and noted their inability to make payments and continue needed programs is because representatives like Ives don’t vote to help fund better breaks in the south suburbs. “She can sit in her ivory tower in Wheaton where they have a ton of businesses and a lot of opportunity,” Davis said. He said all Ives does is talk about how bad his district is but she has no idea of the true problems that exist. “She has never even been to the communities,” Davis said. “So, I wish she would leave my communities out of her mouth.” Davis said until Ives is ready to come to the table and talk about helping his district she should remain silent. “Can you do that, I don’t think you can?” Davis said.)

My father was the first of his ancestors to earn a high school diploma. My mother never attended high school. I spent my junior and senior years and the summer in between washing dishes for the minimum wage in the basement of the S.S. Kresges in Chicago Heights. I just barely made into the upper 20% of my class, my ACT score was only 24, I was draft bait, my eyesight could not be corrected to 20/20, I had partial red/green color blindness, and I had Osgood-Schlatter disease (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Osgood%E2%80%93Schlatter_disease).
