Dec. 3 – Orland Park Patch
With three village board seats up for grabs, Fotopoulos is running as an independent Republican candidate. Incumbent trustees Jim Dodge, Kathy Fenton and Brad O’Halloran are running as the Orland Park United slate, along with Mayor Dan McLaughlin and village clerk candidate John Mehalek.
“I have a lot of the same concerns I had when running a couple of years ago,” Fotopoulos said. “The main thing is fiscal responsibility. The fact that (the administration) didn’t reveal plans for the (Ninety 7 Fifty) apartment complex until after the election troubles me. I don’t support public funds used for private development. If we are using bonds use it for parks, baseball and soccer fields.”
