Terrace View Pond on the northwest side of Lombard is the main campaign issue for one District 1 trustee candidate and a concern for all three people seeking the seat in the April 9 election. Deborah Messineo-Jones says her top priority is creating a more biologically healthy water condition at the pond, which she says stagnates and smells. "People don't even call it a pond anymore, and it's very unhealthy," she said. "I think we took a natural resource in our own backyards and turned it into a dump."
