Letters to the Editor


I was disheartened to see the published Village of Swansea Treasurer’s Report on Thursday signed by the deputy village clerk.

Where is the elected village clerk? Lauren O’Neill has been absent from village meetings for most of this year. And now there seems to be a problem with taking committee meeting minutes. Ms. O’Neil, if you’re just too busy do your elected duties, then it’s time to step down and let someone who really cares about this position take over.

Ever since Ms. O’Neill was removed from the Illinois Retirement System, you could see her work performance reduced month by month to the point of being ridiculous. I say to Ms. O’Neill: please do the job you were elected to do.
