Morton Grove Mayor Calls a Unity Meeting

Candidates in the April 5, 2011 elections for Morton Grove seats are invited to participate in an open-dialogue meeting.

Village Mayor Dan Staackmann announced over the weekend that he will be holding a "Unity Meeting" for post-election progress.

The event is open to any Morton Grove candidates who ran in the April 5 elections for village, library, park or elementary leader positions.

On Saturday, April 16, the Morton Grove residents will meet in an upstairs conference room at the Civic Center at 9:30 a.m.  

"We will  focus on bringing our community together and all work together to make Morton Grove a better place to live and raise a family," Staackmann said.

This offer of open communication with the opposition is a bit hypocritical, considering the Action Party continually dodged efforts to hold an open debate with the opposing Caucus Party prior to the last election. Now that the Action Party is again firmly entrenched in the village government, the mayor can afford to be magnanimous to the opposition. His party only won 3 seats by a narrow margin and he is rightfully concerned. The Action Party does not have a sterling record of openness. We hear about too many deals after they have been already settled and beyond change. Is the mayor going to restrict their speaking to 4 minutes and make them sign in before they can talk, just like at the village hall meetings? I am not trying to be negative for the sake of being so, but I think the Action Party will make an appearance of being open to other views, but they will go ahead and do their thing anyways.
