    Now is the time to put up or shut up. I attended hearings at Skokie and Markham last time. If the majority of us attended at least one hearing it would send a strong message to the County Board. I hope to see you there.

    I agree with you Monique-put up or shut up. We should act like the fighters we are-the only difference is the forum. How can we call ourselves attorneys when we can’t represent our own interest!! Now is not the time for whinning, now is the time for action. Anyone can complain but it takes a special breed to stand up for the underdog. We are that breed. Think of the hear as representing a client who is getting jacked around by the system. We do this everyday. How should this be different? The Board members are just another jury to practice our legal craft. They won’t bit so give them a piece of your mind. As a former politician, I can say that most board members actually want to do the right thing but it takes alittle hard nose persuasion to see an issue differently than there leader. They need our help to make the right decision.
