About this Article
An Island Lake trustee candidate is criticizing Mayor Debbie Herrmann for promoting a website that attacks her political opponents and ridicules some local residents. The site, sourgrapesgang.com, labels some Herrmann critics as "whackadoos." It's also filled with "half-truths" about the candidates opposing Herrmann and her allies, said village board hopeful Mark Beeson, who is running against Herrmann's political slate and was among those targeted. Herrmann says she was only sharing the link and had nothing to do with its content.
