John is an Indiana native who moved to Oak Park in 1976. He served on the District 97 school board, coached youth sports and, more recently, retired from the law. That left him time to become a Wednesday Journal columnist and now a blogger. John has some pretty strong opinions about Oak Park and a wry way of putting them across. You won't want to leave his blog without leaving a comment of your own.
