Dominick: Cicero recognizes diversity as it grows
As the world remembers the late Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. on the 50th anniversary of his march on Washington D.C., which strengthened the civil rights movement in America, it’s worth noting that the town of Cicero also has advanced significantly in reinforcing civil rights.
If you believed the inaccurate and incomplete coverage by the mainstream news media, you might think Al Capone and racial tension still haunt our great town. But Cicero is beyond those turbulent times, even if some media refuse to see.
One of my first acts as town president in 2005 was to address both the concerns of the Mexican-American community, the largest ethnic group in Cicero, and also the concerns of the African-American community.
