Neighborhood Network Remarks June 6, 2023 By Mayor Woods

Posted on June 9, 2023 at 9:57 AM by James Guirguis

To Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle and Commissioners Donna miller and Monica Gordon, to United Way, and Nicor Gas, as well as our very own OAI, on behalf of the Village of Park Forest Board of Trustees and our neighboring-network partner, Richton Park, we welcome you! We welcome all the sectors woven together into the belief that we are better together, as neighbors and neighborhoods …

We know that ZIP CODES should not be CODE for lack of services or resources, or CODE for the quality of life vs. the quantity of lives lost. Whether it be from expanded healthcare services for children or workforce development for parents, we realize that there is no need to trade spaces when we can simply transform places! This is what collaboration and partnership looks like! Indeed, these are efforts of good deeds that bring about results for those in need.

Being that we are here today, it proves that we have moved beyond the space of conversation and into the realm of transformation.

Yes, today is a good day. Let us continue to do the Good Work!

Thank you.
