There's a lot the Riverdale Park District doesn't have. For instance, a swimming pool. However, one thing they do have is a credit card for the elected officials who run the park district.And the hoops players pay for the nets themselves.
FOX 32 News and the Better Government Association have found that a credit card is being used to pay for tens of thousands of dollars in conferences, flights, hotel rooms and fancy meals.
At a pickup basketball game in a south suburban Riverdale public park, kids said that it's been a long time since they've heard the 'swoosh' of a ball going through the net.
"Two, three months ago," said one kid.
I feel bad for the kids but not their parents--they electeded these clowns.
