Letter: Marge Paul is independent voice on Berwyn City Council

To the Editor:

A couple of young men from the firefighters union stopped by my door recently with glossy campaign handouts featuring Mayor Lovero and urging my vote for Mr. Walega for 3rd Ward alderman in Berwyn.

All I could think of is what would possess any 3rd Ward resident to vote out our only independent voice on the Berwyn City Council? We are so lucky to have Marge Paul as our alderman.

Despite the overwhelming pressures of being the sole watchdog on the council, Marge accepts her role with a smile and never gives up. Last year, she caught an error in the tax levy language that would have raised the already ballooning taxes by another 11 percent!

She's proven to be a fighter not only for 3rd Ward residents but for all Berwyn taxpayers. Definitely re-elect Marge Paul. From flood prevention to appropriate business development, I trust Marge Paul to truly represent us.
