After reading your article in the Dec. 21 issue of the landmark regarding the village president of Brookfield (“Law would give Brookfield prez sweeping powers,” News), these people running (or can I say running down) this village obviously have too much time on their hands.

If we have to count on these people in the event of a disaster, we don’t stand a chance.

They can’t take care of us now. Look at the streets. Look at all the vacant business properties. Ogden Avenue is a disgrace.

The “prez” should pay attention to this current disaster and try to develop this village to the great potential it has.
