SCIENCE ACADEMY - If I could do anything I wanted to do, I would start a Science Academy in Morton. I’ve hired nearly 200 engineers from overseas. Almost all share the desire to provide not just a good education for their children but an extraordinary education for their children. Even those already in the States would migrate to Morton from Chicago or St. Louis for the right program for their kids.
VETERAN FRIENDLY MORTON - Our young men and women go in harms way to protect our country but when they come home they go from standing in the front to standing in the back - that has to stop. Morton can lead the way as the premier veterans-friendly city. Why not give preference to veterans for village jobs, why not special offers to veterans from all our stores, how about a land-bank of property on which returning veterans can build, or apartments with subsidized rates for the first few years back until they get on their feet. What are your ideas?
