In Support of MPRB President Liz Wielinski
I am deeply shocked, saddened and disturbed about the vitriolic and mean-spirited attacks that have recently been directed at Park Board President Liz Wielinski.
I have known Liz since 2004 when she, I and three others co-founded Park Watch.
Park Watch was founded to reform the previous Park Board administration and to recreate a Park Board that would be transparent, administratively accountable and ensure citizen participation. And with the new Park Board in 2009 and the hiring in 2011 of Superintendent Miller, there have been significant improvements.
Since her election to the board in 2009, Liz has worked tirelessly to benefit our parks
and park system. She deserves to be treated with respect–not insults.
