Public Library board of trustees,

Gina Miller and Patricia Adaranijo

defeated Bradley Daniels to retain

both seats in the Consolidated General

with 4,197 votes (45.63 percent),

the Cook County Clerk’s Office.

Patricia Adaranijo followed with

2,695 votes (29.3 percent) and

Bradley Daniels finished third with

2,305 votes (25.06 percent).

With all precincts reporting in

votes (30.18 percent) and Daniels

finished third with 276 votes (22.33

percent).

“[Voters] must think the library

is doing a good job for the Village,

so I take it as a compliment that

people want me to stay in and use

my voice as a representative,” said

Miller, who will be sworn in for a

third term.

Tinley Park-Park District

referendum fails for second time

Jacquelyn Schlabach

Editor

The Tinley Park-Park

District failed to pass its

referendum to increase the

limiting rate for the second

time on the ballot in

the Consolidated General

Election April 2.

With all 40 precincts reporting

in Cook County,

4,173 residents (68.63 percent)

voted in opposition

of the referendum, while

1,907 (31.37 percent)

voted in favor, according

to unofficial results

from the Cook County

Clerk’s Office. With 1 out

of 1 precincts reporting in

Will County, 23 residents

(88.46 percent) voted in

opposition of the referendum,

while three residents

(11.54 percent) voted in

favor.

“It’s like with anything,

you’re always hopeful that

you’re going to get better

results, and we certainly

got better results [this election]

but not what we were

looking for,” Roby said.

“It’s an unfortunate thing

that we weren’t able to

get this thing moved forward

but at the same time

that’s what the democracy

is about that’s why you ask

yes and no questions.”

The referendum appeared

on the November

ballot where 25 percent of

voters voted in favor of the

referendum, while 75 percent

voted against it, according

to executive director

at the Tinley Park-Park

District, Shawn Roby.

As previously reported

by The Junction, the referendum

to increase the limiting

rate would have been

used for general maintenance

and funding longterm

capital. According to

Roby, over the next two

years, the park district is

to retire $2 million of debt,

which he said would lower

Tinley Park resident’s tax

bills anyway. The park district

was asking taxpayers

as a collective whole to

pay $980,000 in perpetuity.

The referendum stated

that taxpayers would pay

what they did in 2017

plus $980,000. Regardless

of the referendum being

passed, Roby said that taxpayers

will pay less money

to the park district

Roby said that because

the referendum didn’t pass

this election cycle, the

park district will have to

investigate other available

options, such as a bond.

“The money that we’re

looking for is still something

we’re going to need

so we’re going to have to

look at that and then any

other options that may be

on the table, maybe we

won’t make certain renovations

that we originally

had planned,” Roby said.

“All of that is on the table

to see where we can go

with this at this point.”
