"Thank you so much for your website, I think you are doing a great job. I am writing to let you know that Councilman Dennis Gallagher becomes more unhinged by the day. I compained to him that my kids could use a place to play ball and it wasn't fair that the nicer fields at Juniper Valley Park are sitting there unoccupied and locked a good portion of the time. Councilman Gallagher blamed the two men who fix up the park for locking the fields without permission. I called the Parks Department and they said that the fields are locked to keep them well maintained and that permits were required for play. I went back to Gallagher to tell him what I was told, and then he blamed a baseball team that he used to fund up until last year.
He then told me, "Just cut the locks."
I couldn't believe that my own councilman would encourage people to break the law and vandalize park property, but I heard it with my own ears! I told some people about this and my friend notified the Parks and Police Departments."
