Morton Grove Park Board Commissioner Dan Ashta is being criticized for not standing up during the Pledge of Allegiance during park board meetings, the Morton Grove Champion reports.
Former Morton Grove Village Clerk Eileen Coursey Winkler made a public statement at the July 18 meeting, calling Dan Ashta’s actions “disrespectful.” Ashta did not directly discuss Winkler’s comments but instead welcomed her to open a “private dialogue” through email, according to the newspaper.
