Deciding not to let the voters of Shorewood elect a trustee to replace Phinney who resigned his seat, the Village Board interviewed 12 applicants ..........
( I believe none of the twelve have ever subjected themselves to the bright light of the election process and found this back door way to office to be more palatable !)
The Village Board Members selected Sean Cummings, who is the co-chair of the D2D Committee.
The D2D project, replacing the SHS natural field with an artificial field, and possibly adding a big dome for winter, was touted as a private contribution project that would cost in the $3 million range.
The "private contribution" aspect of the project may have been well intentioned at first, but the D2D Committee, with Sean Cummings in the lead, quickly acquired about $1 million in taxpayer money from the School District, the Village Board and the CDA.
In the meantime --- the School Board is cutting back programs like music, arts and
languages, and is trying to figure out which school building to close
for the lack of students and money ..........
Mr Cummings should fit right in with the present Board Trustees, who have a penchant for overlooking the mundane every day needs of the Village of Shorewood, for the bright lights and glamour of the Big Dollar Projects.
