Proviso Board Candidate Arbdella "Della" Patterson Hires Burt Odelson as Lawyer!!!
Proviso School Board candidate Arbdella "Della" Patterson has hired Burt Odelson, of Odelson & Sterk, Ltd, to represent her in a case before the Proviso High School Electoral Board. The Proviso Electoral Board has been convened solely to hear legal objections filed against Ms. Patterson alleging that she has a legal conflict and cannot sit on the school board. Patterson's attorney is the School District's former general counsel who was ousted unanimously by the Board in May of 2007. Odelson has since filed a lawsuit against the Board President and the Board President has filed one against him.
