GEL ELECTION PROFILE: Get to Know the Glen Ellyn Civic Betterment Party

Glen Ellyn Civic Betterment Party: What is it?

As election time nears, many residents may ask, “What is the Civic Betterment Party?” We asked Alex Demos, Nominating Chair for the Civic Betterment Party, to respond to a few questions to help residents understand how the party works and what they are doing for this year's election.

The Glen Ellyn Park District (GEPD) posted an overview of the Ackerman Park fieldhouse project on their website in response to our open letter from March 27, 2009 to the Executive Director and board. The overview answers some questions, but many key questions remain unanswered. They are listed below.

For reference purposes: here are some important facts about this project:
- the referendum funding request for this project was $7.4 million (the project total cost is close to $9.2 million)

GEL BIG PICTURE: Glen Ellyn Park District Responds to Open Letter

In March of 2006, a Park District $12.5 million referendum failed to achieve a successful vote from the residents for land acquisition; building a new Main Street Recreation Center with increased program rooms and a larger gymnasium to accommodate the growing recreational needs in our community; renovate the Lake Ellyn Boat House and construct new washrooms and shelter at Ackerman Park. 9,387 votes were cast with a majority voting against this referendum.

Glen Ellyn Village President Candidates

Questions Posed by the Citizens for Glen Ellyn Preservation to the 2009 Glen Ellyn Village President Candidates Gary Fasules (Independent) and Mark Pfefferman (Civic Betterment Party).

We are sharing their responses with permission by the Citizens for Glen Ellyn Preservation www.glenellynpreservation.org.

1. What policies or programs would you support as Village Board President to enhance the relationship between the preservation of historic resources and economic development?

On Monday the Village Board approved cuts in Special Programs Fund (SPF).

We wanted to clarify how these cuts fit into the broader budget issues and the proposed sales tax increase. According to village manager Steve Jones, these cuts are unrelated to the proposed Home Rule Sales Tax (HRST) increase and the current General Fund budget deficit.
