Mark Kern and the St. Clair County Board pays $32,000 an acre for a park and most people don’t even know where it is.
Belleville Mayor Mark Eckert pays $1 million for a swamp that the previous owner paid $150,000 for.
Mayor Eckert buys the Meredith Home from the Catholic Church for $500,000 so it can’t be turned into a questionable abode for homeless people or something of that sort.
Democratict big wheel Bruce Cook buys the Meredith Home from Belleville to have it torn down to make a park in honor of his daughter but, so far, nothing has happened.
Never miss a local story.
