Village is about to see its finest hour

Posted4/29/2021 1:00 AM

I for one completely disagree with John Olsen's claim of Elk Grove Village Mayor Johnson making pompous proclamations. Mayor Johnson has done nothing but good during these trying times.

He has given credit to the residents to help them with water bills not once but twice, He has set up COVID-19 vaccination sites within the village to get all residents vaccinated. and now. He is going to show that it is time to start living again.


I applaud Mayor Johnson and can't wait for the fun to start. And I know I am not alone.

This is going to be Elk Grove Village's finest moment. The fireworks, the carnival, the concerts (and what a great lineup they have), the parade, the Octoberfest and on and on.

Yes, thank you, Mayor Johnson for being the first to bring the fun back. If everyone stays safe and has fun, we will be ok. I will have my mask on except when I'm drinking a cold beer, eating some corn on the cob while catching the parade just before the fireworks go off. Man, this was a long time coming. Kudos, Mayor, hope to have a beer with you.
