Former People’s Voice Party Candidate Resigns

Friday, May 6th, 2011

Long time ally of Kinga Bartoszek, and People’s Voice Party Trustee Phil DePaola has resigned his seat on the village board.  Mayor Wasowicz announced that he had a notarized copy of his resignation in his possession and gave the reason of the upcoming retirement of Mr. DePaola.  Trustee DePaola ran in 2009 along side Trustee Bartoszek and Former Trustee John Fairmain, who resigned last year.  Trustee DePaola a long term resident of the village retired from a position in the Justice Building Department and then went onto work for the JWS Water Commission until a year or so ago.  DePaola resigned from his $78,000.00 a year job last year as executive director at the JWS Water Commission.  To date no one has ever on record stated what caused the water commission to come to a separation agreement with Mr. DePaola.  DePaola has been seen as a rather controversial figure in village politics from his concocted  jumbo check written on the back of another party’s campaign sign, to the ever changing story about the location of the original village signs his departure leaves the question of what is next for the remaining members of the People’s Voice Party.
