KLEPT, why doesn't Welch's car have a current vehicle sticker? [H]
[UPDATE: I was wrong on this one. The Village of Hillside stopped requiring vehicle stickers on January 1, 2003. Therefore the evidence shows that Emanuel "Chris" Welch was in full compliance with the law.]
I took these pictures of a Mercedes I assume to belong to Emanuel "Chris" Welch. Inside the car Welch's District 209 photo ID was hanging from the rear view mirror.
I noticed that the most recent village sticker on the vehicle was from 2002.
Part of Welch's campaign for state representative has been attacking incumbent Karen Yarbrough for not doing enough to get more resources for schools. Welch's critics tend to respond by saying that Welch's words are meaningless and that he's in politics to help himself.
Welch is still a resident of Hillside according to his campaign filings. So I assume his car is registered at his Hillside address which means he probably didn't get a sticker for the last four years. Hillside gives a new sticker every year, right?
How strick is Hillside in enforcing vehicle sticker requirements? Is this something anyone can neglect? Or is it something where one has to get special treatment? Would a connected scofflaw have to ask for the favor? Or is it understood that Mayor Tamburino's cronies aren't to be charged normal taxes and fees?
