  1. I loved the video on “Let’s talk about Thornton Township”. It was refreshing to see that someone besides people on Facebook has interests in the “CRAZY” behavior of Township Supervisor Tiffany Henyard! Please keep up going to the meetings and reporting!!! Thanks!!! How about coming over to Harvey and doing a little truth reporting! Not those “FLUFF” pieces about the mayor and his pet projects!!!
