Letters to the Editor: OPPL Board finally serving its public
4:25 pm CDT August 27, 2015

In October 2013, the Orland Park Public Library’s attorney, James Fessler, told me during a board meeting that I had no right to demand answers from this Board. He said that demanding answers from elected officials isn’t in the Constitution. The Library Board then refused to answer questions for two years.

Since then, I have been pressing for the OPPL to become a public body that respects the public’s First Amendment right to petition its government.
