Proudly remembering my father today. He ran the Sanitary District in Chicago in the 60’s. He encountered corruption throughout the organization. His attempts to root out the corruption led to an attempt on his life. Even after finding three sticks of dynamite in his car he stuck with it and continued his attempts to reform the organization.
He taught me integrity and what it means to be an honorable servant of the people.
He was also a superb engineer implementing the deep tunnel project which greatly improved the water quality of Lake Michigan.
The cartoon here is one of many that was given to my dad by the cartoonist himself. My dad had all of these framed when he first ran for the City Council of Mill Creek, WA.
