Plainfield resident Rob Ayres this week launched a survey asking questions mirroring those that will appear on the March 18 primary ballot for the Plainfield Park District.

Ayres said he created the online survey to show that the park district board could have gotten the same community feedback without having to fill up the ballot with the three questions — leaving room for more pressing issues, such as a recall.

On Thursday morning, Ayres released some early results of the poll.

According to Ayres, the 195 responses include eight duplicate IP addresses — which could be the result of more than one person in a home using the same computer to fill out the survey.  

"Now, this may be that two different people took the survey on the same computer or device, but to try and keep this as clean as possible, only one will be counted," Ayres said in an email to Patch. The data also doesn't track whether respondents live within the park district boundaries.

The results, so far, were as follows on Thursday morning:

  1. Should the Plainfield Park District issue permits for users of the districts' dog parks? Yes: 16.41 percent No: 83.59 percent 
  2. Would you like the park district commissioners to investigate building a community center? Yes: 43.59 percent No: 56.41 percent
  3. Do you feel that term limits should be placed on the park district commissioners? Yes: 41.54 percent No: 58.46 percent

Hey My Conscience if by you meaning Jeff has done one good thing, what he has done was to challenge Mike Lambert on the ballot it is no different then the person who challenged the other two people that were running for our park board, and look how that turned out with an unqualified director and Doug Booth making $82,000.00 a year as a communication director and firing Mary Ann Ryan who was in that position making a lot less and other good people losing there job so they could hire friends and doing business with friends and getting in a unfair labor act ruling for firing people.
