What are your hobbies?

“My hobbies basically are cutting lawns in the summer, snowblowing in the winter, fixing lawn mowers, and I go bike riding. I collect lawn mowers, electronics, all that stuff. One person’s junk is something good to me. And I like to play video games.”

What do you like about Oak Lawn?

“I’ve been here all my life. I know my way all around it. That’s why I never want to move from Oak Lawn. It’s a good town. Plus, I was an Oak Lawn police cadet for five years.”

What’s the last movie you saw?

“An older one called ‘Category 6: Day of Destruction.’ It’s with Brian Dennehy. There’s a big storm, a combination of hurricanes, twisters and blackouts coming to the city of Chicago. It’s a good movie.”

What would you do if you were mayor for a day?

“That’s a tough one. I’d try to lower the taxes if I could. I hope I could go places and get free food. Plus, I’d walk around and try to meet people I normally don’t talk to.”

Which person from history do you want to meet?

“I’d want to meet Selena Gomez. She’s pretty, and I’ve seen her on many TV shows. She’s a good singer. I’d want to ask her if she’s single, or maybe if she’s going to do any more singing or be in any movies.”
