In a Dec. 5 article titled “Byrnes announces re-election run,” the Review wrote that Commissioner Joe Byrnes works part time at the Park District picking up garbage, but he actually does much more. He has been an awesome ambassador of the Park District. True he does keep the Park clean, but he does much more. Helping those who park their cars in the parking lot, aiding seniors as they come to the Park, being everyone’s dogs best friend by giving them a dog biscuit as they walk in front of the Park are just a few of the things that Joe does. This doesn’t even include all the volunteer hours Joe puts in at the Park. (Anyone who has gotten a sandwich at the softball tournament knows Joe).
