  1. Thank you to the people of “The Village Free Press” for posting this! I challenge all the residents in the Proviso Township to come to this Sunday’s forum in Melrose Park. Invite your friends and neighbors, and help spread the word. Ordinary people, working people, low-income people, and the youth needs to come to the forum and ask the hard questions of the candidates that are running. Please do your homework, and educate yourself of the candidates that you are selecting. That is the only way that people will see major changes in the Proviso Township on a local level.
