We told you last week and we're telling you again: It's not OK to mess with campaign signs.
Village trustee candidate Joan Hoigard’s husband, Kurt, was on his way home Sunday after dropping off a campaign sign with a friend who lives on Ashland when he passed the 7-Eleven at the corner of 47th Street and South La Grange Road. Amid the collection of a dozen or so signs for other candidates and races, there were two distinct holes where placards for Hoigard’s slate once stood. “He went around the side, opened the gate, looked in Dumpster,” said Hoigard, who is running with Michael Horvath and Jeff Tucek. “Sure enough, there were the signs.

Patch asked the village president and trustee candidates to respond to two questions regarding possible construction at 47th Street and East Avenue.
An Illinois Department of Transportation study is underway to determine what should be done to alleviate congestion at the intersection between 47th Street and East Avenue in La Grange, which is mere feet from a busy freight train crossing. The intersection, which has stop signs at each corner, sees about 12,000 cars and 56 freight trains pass through each day, according to the Chicago Region Environmental Transportation and Efficiency Program (CREATE). La Grange Patch asked the village president and trustee candidates to answer two questions regarding intersection. Candidates’ responses are listed in the order in which their names will appear on the April 9 ballot. I believe the board has the opportunity early in the upcoming term to work…
