Take focus off Fenwick, put it on economy

  • Article
text size: AAA

As a 1970 graduate of Fenwick High School, I was particularly let down by Gov. Pat Quinn's comments to reporters that Fenwick has "Lost its soul," as reported in the Daily Herald on March 15. I have always been proud to say that Pat Quinn is a Fenwick alumnus from his days at the Citizens Utility Board to the Illinois governorship. But I draw the line at fighting his brother's battles in print with the office of "governor of Illinois" behind him. I'm sure that John is a very fine man and also very capable of addressing his own battles.

I sincerely hope (along with, most likely, the vast majority of Illinois voters and nonvoters) that Gov. Quinn will appropriate all of his waking hours to addressing the sad "state of the state economy at all levels. Anything that Quinn can do to mitigate the damage done by his predecessors will also be very much appreciated by the residents of this great state. Fenwick can, rest assured, stand on its own laurels, past, present and future. Fenwick High School needs no defending by me, but this speaks of Fenwick pride and soul.
