Broadview public works investigation closed Village officials, however, aren’t saying what they discovered By IGOR STUDENKOV Contributing Reporter

Broadview appears to be moving on since an ABC 7 investigation conducted last May indicated that some village employees may have been using a public works facility for off-the-books auto repairs. Since then, two public works employees have been terminated and Broadview Mayor Katrina Thompson said that the village has wrapped up its own internal investigation into the matter, but village officials are mum about what they found. Last year, ABC 7’s I-Team made public video footage that appeared to show public works employees running an off-the-books auto repair operation in a village-owned garage. Matt Ames, the village’s public works director, told I-Team investigators at the time that he was unaware of the operation. In addition to discovering the off-thebook repairs, the I-Team reported that Judy Brown-Marino, a village trustee, said that the board had “signed off on a large number of invoices for auto parts that just listed part numbers. Now she’s questioning if taxpayer money is being used for private repairs.” See BROADVIEW PUBLIC WORKS on page 3

Chambers unite for annual awards banquet On June 6, at Triton College, 2000 S. 5th Ave. in River Grove, the Bellwood, Maywood, Broadview and Melrose Park Chambers of Commerce hosted their annual Proviso Township Joint Chambers of Commerce annual scholarship and awards banquet. At least 300 people packed the college’s large dining space for the event, which featured J.B. Pritzker, the businessman and Democratic gubernatorial candidate, as the scheduled keynote speaker. Due to a family emergency, Pritzker didn’t take the podium. His running mate, state Rep. Juliana Stratton, spoke instead. Six young people received $1,000 scholarships while eight community members received awards for their service.

Broadview daycare in jeopardy as village moves to sell Precious Heart Daycare’s owner said has to be out of property by June 30

By IGOR STUDENKOV Contributing Reporter

For the last 13 years, Gloria Lynch has been operating Precious Heart Daycare out of a village-owned building at 2301 W. Roosevelt Road in Broadview. But now, the village is looking to sell the building and it wants Lynch out by June 30. In the meantime, Lynch said in an

BROADVIEW PUBLIC WORKS Issues resolved? from page 1 At the time, the I-Team reported that one public works employee had been suspended. In addition, the Cook County Inspector General and Broadview’s attorney both launched investigations into “whether a private auto repair business was run out of Broadview Public Works. The attorney was also “reviewing the conduct of Public Works Director Matt Ames after learning what the I-Team uncovered.” The ABC 7 investigation was televised less than two months after Thompson was elected to succeed former Broadview mayor and current trustee Sherman Jones. During a regular board meeting on Dec. 16 — when trustees were debating whether or not to authorize the “temporary and probationary” hiring of a part-time and fulltime laborer in the public works department — Thompson said that dealing with the scandal had consumed most of her attention when she first got into office. She said the two hires, in addition to a cashier, would be the first since she was elected last April. “We had two [public works] employees

interview last month, she’s been trying to secure a loan so that she can purchase the building herself. If that doesn’t happen, the livelihoods of nearly 100 people — from kids to employees — could be upended. Matt Ingersoll, Broadview’s special counsel, said that the village is trying to get out of the landlord business. “The village’s primary role is to provide services like picking up trash,” he said in a phone interview last month. “The role of a landlord – it’s a bit burdensome. It would be better if private citizens owned the property.” There has been some disagreement between village officials and Lynch about the leasing

terminated — one full-time and another part-time and we haven’t replaced them,” Thompson said. “They are needed in those departments. The department is shortstaffed.” At the time, a motion required for the authorization of Thompson’s three recommended hires failed for lack of a second. Since then, the board has approved the hiring of a full-time public works employee. At a March 19 regular meeting, the board voted unanimously to hire Jay Green as a new full-time employee in the department. But the status of other issues related to the public works scandal — such as the inquiry into the conduct of Ames, who still works for the village, and whether or not taxpayer funds were used for private repairs — is still murky, since village officials won’t release any details despite conceding that an internal investigation has closed. After a request for more information last month, Thompson confirmed that the investigation is closed but she didn’t provide any additional details into the matter. Matt Ingersoll, Broadview’s village attorney, also wrote in an email that he was also unable to speak about the investigation. And the public works department did not respond to calls seeking comment. In late May, Village Free Press filed a FOIA request with the village clerk’s office, asking for “any reports related to the conclusion of the internal investigation regarding the

arrangement Broadview had with Precious Heart. Ingersoll said that, to the best of his knowledge, the business had an annual lease with the village until Dec. 31, 2012. After that, the lease became month-to-month. Lynch, on the other hand, said that while there was an agreement about how much rent she would pay, the village never set anything down on paper. Both sides agree that her ability to pay rent wasn’t an issue. Lynch said that the village moved to evict her in December 2017. After she met with village staff members in February and May, the deadline was pushed back – first to the end of May and then to end of June. But deadlines can only be pushed back for so long, so Lynch has been trying to buy the property herself. She said that she tried to get a personal loan, but that didn’t work. Now, she’s trying to get a business loan. As of late last month, she did not know whether she had secured the loan or not. Ingersoll said that Broadview has no issue with Lynch buying the property, but it also

wanted to give other potential buyers an opportunity to purchase it. Lynch said that she hoped she’ll be the one who buys the property — for the sake of her employees and the families who rely on the daycare. She said she’s been operating Precious Heart in Broadview for 13 years, but has had the business for 20 years. She said that she’s put around $100,000 of her own money into making the space usable. Currently, Lynch said, the business employs 15 people and takes care of around 60 kids from Broadview, Maywood, Bellwood and other nearby suburbs. “With [the village] trying to rush it, it’s hard, because I’m trying not to lose my business,” she said. “And that’s a lot for [families] to deal with all of the sudden.” Multiple attempts to contact Lynch about the status of her business loan application and any alternative plans she may have for her business if she can’t remain at her current location were unsuccessful.

D209 hires new HR head in second board vote Anthony Brazouski will start July 1

By MICHAEL ROMAIN Editor

The second time was the charm — at least when it comes to Anthony Brazouski, who was hired as Proviso Township High Schools District 209’s new assistant superintendent of human resources, safety and athletics. The school board voted 4-3 to approve his appointment at a regular meeting on May 8. The vote came roughly a month after the school board had initially voted 4-3 against Brazouski’s appointment at a regular meeting on April 10. Brazouski, who starts on July 1, will receive a base salary of $144,960, in addition to $15,040 that will be put into the Teachers Retirement System. Health and dental benefits total $33,980. Brazouski replaces Kim Waller-Echols, who announced in April that she was resigning to join another school district. He comes to D209 from various school

districts in Wisconsin, where he has worked as chief academic officer, chief executive officer and executive director of academic achievement. According to district officials, he has been a consultant for the district for two years and once applied for the principal position at Proviso West. Brazouski earned a doctorate in Advancement of Leadership, Learning, and Service and a master’s in Educational Leadership from Cardinal Stritch University. He has a bachelor’s degree in English literature and education from Marquette University. According to a statement released by district officials on June 1, Brazouski has deep personal roots in Proviso Township — particularly in Melrose Park, where he grew up. “I am proud to join a school district that has for over a century provided excellent educational opportunities to the community, including members of my own family,” he said in the district statement.

Board members Della Patterson, Theresa Kelly and Amanda Grant had been against Brazouski’s hire since Supt. Jesse Rodriguez recommended him to the board in April. They argued that the process that resulted in Brazouski’s appointment was not fair and echoed concerns of some people on the hiring committee, specifically members of the teachers union, who said that Brazouski was not the best candidate to have emerged from the multi-tiered hiring process, which included four parts, including writing and interview components. Since then, Rodriguez and other board members have pointed out that some of the claims made by those on the hiring committee were based on inaccurate information. Rodriguez and several board members have since noted that Brazouski was, by far, the most qualified candidate in the hiring pool. Board Vice President Sam Valtierrez switched his vote, making Brazouski’s hiring possible. Valtierrez said he changed

Broadview giving out free smoke alarms The initiative is part of larger community outreach effort By MICHAEL ROMAIN Editor

Broadview residents can now receive free smoke alarms as part of an initiative implemented by the Broadview Fire Department, the nonprofit Illinois Fire Safety Alliance and Office of the State Fire Marshal. “The Be Alarmed! Smoke Alarm Installation program provides smoke alarms and fire prevention materials to Illinois fire departments in an effort to both educate residents on fire safety as well as to provide them with lifesaving devices in their home,” Broadview Fire Department officials said in a recent statement. “Smoke alarms are the most effective early warning device there is,” said Anthony Monks, a Broadview fire inspector who reached out to those other organizations about the initiative. “Just having a working smoke alarm in your home reduces your chance of dying in a reported fire in half.” As part of the program, Monks will install the smoke detectors free of charge, conduct a non-punitive safety inspection and help families create a safety plan in the event of a fire. “Our program includes educating residents to have a home fire escape plan, so they know what to do if the smoke alarm sounds,” Monks said. The Be Alarmed! program is part of a more comprehensive array of community outreach

efforts planned throughout the summer that the fire department will have a role in administering. Broadview’s certified car seat installers (Firefighters Scafidi and Nolan) can install infant or toddler car seats and explain all of the safety features for new parents, daycare providers, grandparents and others who are responsible for taking care of infants and toddlers. Contact administrative assistant Kris Murphy at (708) 343-6124 (dial zero) to make an appointment. On June 21, 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., the Broadview Fire Department will host a “Meet Your Firefighters BBQ” at the fire department. The firefighters and paramedics “would like to show you what it takes to provide excellent service to the community. They will explain the roles they provide and give safety tips as well.” On June 29, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., the village of Broadview will host a women’s leadership camp at the Broadview Fire Department, 2400 S. 25th Ave. in Broadview, for young women, ages 11 to 15. The camp, #WeCanToo, is designed to give young women insight into the requirements and demands of community leadership, and tips on working in areas of the workforce that were once male dominated. The camp is free and lunch will be provided. For more info or to secure a spot, contact administrative assistant Kris Murphy at (708) 343-6124 (dial zero). CONTACT: thevillagefreepress@gmail.com

his mind after receiving more information about the hiring process, adding that his vote in April regarding Brazouski’s hiring was based on “hearsay” instead of factual information. “Just because I might have changed my mind doesn’t mean that I’m not looking out for the best interests of my students, parents, community or teachers,” Valtierrez said. “The information is right there. It’s on paper, it’s not hearsay. Last time, unfortunately, I made a mistake. It was hearsay.” Board President Ned Wagner said that after he reviewed the hiring process, “it seemed to be complete, fair and handled properly.” He added that the decision to put the matter back on the agenda for a second vote was cleared by the district’s legal counsel and that the hiring falls within the board’s nepotism and hiring policies.

Teach them to fish, feed them for a lifetime Maywood trustee’s fishing trips open to young people, 10 to 15 By MICHAEL ROMAIN Editor

Melvin Lightford, 71, is a man on a mission and the destination is an area pond. For the last eight years, the Maywood trustee has been taking young people on fishing trips during the summer. Teach a child to fish and you’ll open him or her up to new vistas of opportunity, Lightford said during a recent interview. “I’m trying to get kids off the street and keep them from being hurt,” he said. “But also, there are college fishing programs that offer scholarships. So this can be a way for them to stay out of debt, too.” Yes, fishing scholarships do exist (see here) and Lightford wants to turn kids in the Proviso Township area on to the concept. As he’s done since he was first elected to his trustee position eight years ago, Lightford is looking for kids, ages 10 to 15, and adult chaperones to accompany him on the fishing trips. Lightford’s Take Me Fishing Summer Program Series is free and includes lunch (usually fruit, Vienna hot dogs and quarter pounders, the trustee said). Fishing poles will also be provided for kids who don’t access to, and/or can’t afford, them. The parents or guardians of eligible young people only need to sign waivers, which will be available at Village Hall, 40 Madison St., and the Maywood Park District, 921 S. 9th Ave., in Maywood. This year, the trips will take place on June 16 (to Busse Lake), July 21 (to Maple Lake) and Aug. 18 (Wampam Lake), with the group scheduled to depart from the Maywood Park District at 7 a.m. and returning at 4:30 p.m. on each day.

We’re trying to bring that to Bellwood.” The upcoming streetscape improvements are just the latest in a series of efforts by village officials to invigorate that area of Bellwood, including locating the Office of Emergency Management facility along St. Charles Road, rehabbing two apartment buildings and demolishing a few buildings that were “eyesores.” And more improvements and projects are coming, Tsiolis said, adding that he was not yet prepared to give any details about them.

TORCH RUN United efforts from page 1 is designed to raise awareness and money for the Special Olympics movement. “This is something special to me,” said Bellwood Mayor Andre Harvey, a former firefighter and public safety director, during a speech he gave in Forest Park after the run.

“As much negative press as public servants get, this is something positive,” he added. “More people should be out to see this. Public servants, police officers and fire fighters actually sacrifice their lives and they give back to the community.” Harvey, along with Bellwood Police Chief Jimenez Allen, were among those who participated in the torch run. As the joggers from the law enforcement community ran along Roosevelt Road, they were accompanied by police vehicles and Special Olympic athletes. “This was very, very special to be involved in,” said Allen. “It’s been a long time since I’ve done this, but this is for a good cause. It’s wonderful to see the smile on the

children’s faces.” Westchester Police Chief Steven Stelter said that he wasn’t sure how much money the departments raised collectively (they were still collecting funds early Saturday afternoon), but he noted that departments across Illinois raised around $4.4 million last year from a multitude of torch runs put on around the state. “We do this because we want to do it and we want to give back,” Stelter said. “Our kids are everything in our communities, so we want to give them the tools to stay on the right path. This Torch Run shows our unity in every shape and form.” For some rookie officers, such as Maywood officer Chris Fuqua and Forest Park officer, Zachary Calamus — both of whom joined the force less than a month ago — the event was a baptist of sorts into community policing.

“This is my first torch run,” Fuqua, a Maywood native and Proviso East High School alumnus, said. “It’s a great experience to be involved in. I did this something similar in college, so it’s great to do it again now that I’m on the force.” “This shows that we support the community as much as we want the community to support us,” said Calamus. Forest Park Mayor Anthony Calderone said that the Torch Run reflects the seamless working relationship that the participating police departments and villages have. “This is what it’s all about,” he said. “This is the ending of the run, but it’s just the beginning of what will be in the future. Each of us mayors standing here today supports blue.” CONTACT: thevillagefreepress@gmail.com

NEWS briefs Maywood approves work on 1st Ave. water main, construction to start in 2019 The Maywood Board of Trustees recently voted unanimously for Hancock Engineering to start preliminary engineering work on one of the most deteriorated water mains in the village. During a regular meeting on May 15, the board voted approved an agreement between the village and Hancock so that the can firm can start preliminary engineering services related to the replacement of a deteriorated water main located on the west side of First Avenue, from Harrison Street to Washington Boulevard. The preliminary services include collecting and drafting topographical information for the site, sending documents to utilities and the Illinois Department of Transportation, and drafting utility information on the project plans, among other duties designed to prepare for the actual work of replacing the water main in 2019. “The improvements are being done to address a water main that has a history of recurrent breaks over the last 10 years,” Hancock engineer Mark Lucas explained in a document sent to village officials in April. “The water main is located in between the two southbound lanes of First Avenue,” Lucas wrote, “which results in repairs having a significantly higher cost due to the volume of traffic using the road and the required traffic control on the State owned roadway.” Hancock added that completing the preliminary engineering work now “will allow for the time that may be needed to obtain easements prior to bidding the improvements.” The preliminary engineering services will be completed at an hourly rate not to exceed $55,000, a sum that will be paid for out of the village’s Madison Street TIF fund.

Ferrara awards $5K scholarships to children of Bellwood plant employees Five children of Ferrara Candy Company employees in Bellwood have received $5,000 checks as part of the firm’s second annual Ferrara USA Scholarship Program, which awards 10 high school seniors, graduates or current post-secondary undergraduates money for college. Ferrara awarded a total of $50,000 in scholarship money. Domenic Conversa, who attends York Community High School in Elmhurst, will use the $5,000 to attend Purdue University; Julio Gutierrez, who attends West Chicago Community High School will use the money to attend College of DuPage; Carolina

Melgoza, who attends Morton West High School in Berwyn will use the money to attend Triton College; Wilfredo Najera, who attends Proviso Math and Science Academy in Forest Park, will use the money to attend Triton College; and Jianna Santello, who attends Lake Forest High School in Lake Forest will use the money to attend the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Mike Goldwasser, chief human resources officer at Ferrara, said more than 30 students applied this year, up from about 20 the year before. He said the company worked with Minneapolis-based Scholarship America to review each application, assessing students’ community and school involvement, academics, career goals and more. Goldwasser said the firm split scholarship recipients evenly among employees who work in corporate versus manufacturing plants. “It’s a fantastic way to invest in the community’s development as well as their families,” he said. “The kids who apply for this are so deserving, it’s designed to help them maybe get a leg up and further their education.”

Cook County Sheriff ’s Office creates carjacking database, Maywood joins effort In an effort to address the recent uptick in carjackings across the city and suburbs, the Cook County Sheriff ’s Office has created a database that it hopes will help law enforcement agencies investigate and solve the crimes. Back in April, the sheriff ’s office sent a letter to Maywood Police Chief Valdimir Talley, requesting the police department’s participation in the new database. Brad Curry, the chief operating officer with county sheriff, explained in the letter that the database “will contain the name, personal information of the offender (if available), social media information, the offense, criminal charge, criminal history and any other information deemed critical.” Curry stated that the sheriff ’s office hopes that local police departments will “notify our office as soon as you have completed our reports, or have suspect information of a carjacking.” He added that the office has extended the invitation “to all law enforcement agencies in Cook County and collar counties to share this information in an effort to centralize the data as a source of reference.” Local departments may report their carjacking data to a communications center in the sheriff ’s office, Curry said. “By having this information available in one central location it will aid in identifying trends and patterns in order to help combat this growing issue,” he explained. “Your agency can receive this data as often as you would like.”

On May 6, Talley confirmed that his department has agreed to participate in the database. Data on carjacking incidents this year in Maywood was not immediately available. According to the department’s annual report, presented in January, the number of motor vehicle thefts in the village held steady from 2015 to 2017. There were 98, 89 and 93 in 2015, 2016 and 2017, respectively. There was no data available in the report explicitly referencing carjackings.

Maywood launches Safe Summer Initiative Dozens of residents gathered inside of the gymnasium of the Maywood Multipurpose Building, 200 S. 5th Ave., on May 26 for the official kickoff of the village’s Safe Summer Initiative. Headed up by Maywood Mayor Edwenna Perkins and Maywood Trustee Isiah Brandon, each year, the initiative compiles a list of summer activities for young people to participate in during the summer months. Flyers with a listing of summer events are available at the Maywood Public Library, 121 S. 5th Ave. in Maywood, and other places.

Maywood launches Safe Summer Initiative Legislation sponsored by state Rep. Camille Y. Lilly (78th) that would raise the legal age of tobacco and e-cigarette purchases from 18 to 21 statewide passed both houses of the Illinois General Assembly on May 30. It now heads to Gov. Bruce Rauner’s desk to be signed into law. Lilly’s district encompasses parts of Melrose Park, which is among municipalities in the state that have not introduced their own ordinances to raise the minimum wage, according to a list provided by Tobacco Free Kids. Bellwood and Broadview were also off of the list. Maywood enacted a tobacco age ordinance in 2017.

If the measure, Senate Bill 2332, becomes law, it would make it a Class A misdemeanor for someone under 21 to try to buy tobacco products with a “false or forged identification card or to transfer, alter, or deface an identification card,” according to the law’s language. “This is a public health issue for our young children who need to be focused on doing the best they can in school and other extracurricular activities,” said Lilly in a recent statement. “Long-term health care needs to be taken into account because while we enjoy good health at a young age, lung cancer, respiratory issues and heart disease can be exacerbated through smoking.”

State budget signed into law According to a Chicago Tonight report, on June 4, Gov. Bruce Rauner signed into law a new budget for the first time in his nearly 4 years at the helm. The governor called the measure “a compromise,” a “step in the right direction,” and a “great a great bipartisan effort.” Per the Chicago Tonight report: “That Illinois has a spending plan – a $38.5 billion budget which passed on time and received support from members of both parties – is notable given recent precedent. Illinois social services, higher education, even vendors that contract with the state to do business, all languished during 2.5 years of unprecedented political deadlock in which lawmakers failed to pass a budget. “That logjam broke last July when a dozen mutinous Republican lawmakers joined with Democrats to pass an income tax increase over Rauner’s objections. “The new fiscal year 2019 budget that will take effect in July spends approximately $5 billion Illinois will bring now that the individual income tax rate is 4.95 percent instead of 3.75 percent and the corporate rate is 7 percent, up from 5.25 percent.” Read more at: chicagotonight.wttw. com/2018/06/04/illinois-budget-signedsealed-delivered.

VILLAGE perspectives

Why Illinois should be proud of its progress on education Much has been made recently of a newfound sense of unity at the state Capitol, and rightly so. After years of bitter partisan fighting, Democrats and Republicans came behind a new state budget and left Springfield with a renewed sense that compromise and cooperation are essential and very possible with the right mindset. But we should not take a shortsighted view of this important moment. It has been in the works for many months amongst our group of lawmakers who understand our state’s higher education system depends on a united effort to rebound and rebuild. Last year, a group of Democrats and Republicans with leadership positions on the higher education committees in the Legislature came together with big dreams and a bigger commitment to turning them into new hope for our colleges and universities. The end product is a package of legislation that should make all of us proud and hopeful.

Our higher education struggles have become widely known. As our attendance has declined in recent years and funding was held in limbo during the budget impasse, families and current and potential students worried. Some who planned to attend school here went elsewhere. Others couldn’t afford to go at all. And with every student who made that tough choice not to attend an Illinois college or university came huge ripples: for those students and their families, knowing they might not return to live and work here; for the campus educators and support staff whose careers were not uncertain; and for the many communities

who depend on a thriving higher education system to fuel their success. Our Higher Education Working Group policy agenda helps answer these questions definitively. Yes, we want all students to stay, grow and thrive in Illinois. The platform is diverse. We are working feverishly to better understand why students sometimes fall through the cracks when they transfer to new schools, and how to prevent that moving forward. We are providing a critical fouryear commitment so MAP grant students can afford to attend and finish college, not take it year by year. We are creating a new merit-based scholarship program called AIM HIGH to help give

CHRIS WELCH

students the access and affordability they need to reach their full potential. We also are giving our campuses more tools to invest in making long overdue repairs and improvements to their buildings and grounds, and collecting more information voluntarily from our K-12 students to better understand what they want in the college experience and how we can provide it within our state borders. We have more work to do. Each of these initiatives will rightly be judged not on hope and cooperation, but on how well they work to increase enrollment and provide more opportunities for Illinoisans. We stand confidently behind this package as a strong first step toward reclaiming Illinois’ mantle as one of the nation’s best homes for higher education. We did this together, and will build on our progress together, because Illinois cannot afford anything less.

— Emanuel “Chris” Welch, 7th Dist. State Rep
