Borowski said he and his brother, who was out of town during Monday’s council meeting, recently attended a board meeting where John Borowski commented on a case that affected his street.

“I listened very carefully to get his comments on that case … and I found his comments to be right on target,” James Borowski said. “He’s someone who can see the forest from the trees and I think he’ll do very well.”

LaCicero said he held an interview with John Borowski, and the opinions of the two “meshed very well.”
