Time for Dist. 5 to retire Jack Wagner

I want to share an experience I recently had with Jack Wagner. It was not a pleasant one.

When I learned that someone was running against Mr. Wagner, I checked out his website and decided I liked what Kollin Kozlowski had to say. I contacted him and told him he could put a sign in my front yard.

On Saturday, Feb. 12, my doorbell rang. When I answered, I saw that it was Mr. Wagner.

He said he noticed I had his opponent's signs in my front yard and asked what I thought he had done wrong. I pointed to the three homes to the west of my home. He told me he had fixed that. I told him that he and the village had allowed it to happen in the first place.

When he told me he couldn't stop someone from buying a house, I told him I agreed with that and then told him that he and the village were the ones who approved the variances that allowed the two lots to be divided into four. I also told him that they also allowed the builder to construct a new home before demolishing the old one; this had been part of the agreement.

I said: "You remind me of many of our members in Congress; too many terms served; time to retire."

No one is so good and well-qualified to deserve public service for 24 years and expect four more.
