Last year, State Rep. Kathleen Willis passed legislation allowing the Village of Bensenville to sell 125 acres of White Pines Golf Club to private developers. Her bill was added as an amendment to a crime bill with no discussion or debate.
Willis’ shortsighted, selfish bill will destroy the last of Bensenville’s precious green space and lead to more industrial sprawl, more heavy traffic, more flooding, more blight and more pollution.
On Tuesday, June 28th we can say NO to the sale of White Pines by saying NO to Kathleen Willis.
