I am a husband, father, son, brother, uncle and friend. I believe in sharing my talents and experiences by giving back to the community by giving my time to coaching, church and especially to the disability community. I truly believe that all men and women are created equally.
It is amazing how a family of 5 can attend State Fair on a budget and still go home satisfied after a full day. Lucky for us, the coupon books included all of the kids favorite items, grilled cheese sandwich's, baked potato's and pizza.
Why does this country wait until a tragic event occurs before they realize the importance of the infrastructure in this country? Whether it be the bridge collapse in Minnesota a couple of years ago, the closing of the zoo interchange a couple of month's ago, cement falling from the County Courthouse, Hoan Bridge or parking structures in recent month's to the latest story of sidewalks in Cudahy. To me, all Government thinks that by putting off needed maintenance on this country's infrastructure, they are keeping costs in check. But what is the cost of delaying these updates?
As some of you may remember, one of my ideas while running for Mayor, included the idea of making something in the Cudahy Sckool District special/unique in an effort to bring families to Cudahy. I know that my colleague Randy Hollenbeck has had similiar ideas. I was told by some, that a unique idea from the schools would not bring people to Cudahy.
When did sports become more about the individual then the team? Other then maybe tennis, swimming, track and field and gymnastics, sports is about working together as a team. I was brought up that no one man was bigger then the team.
Martin Luther King Jr said "Cowardice asks the question: is it safe? Expediency asks the question: is it politic? Vanity asks the question: is it popular? But, Conscience asks the question: is it right? And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular - but one must take it simply because it is right."
