My name is Rick Pratl, and I work for the Village of Chicago Ridge Public Works: 30 years in the Public Works and 30 years a union member. I have been the union steward for the past 15 years. I come from a union home. My dad was a union plumber. I also have coached high school football at Harold L. Richards for the past 26 years. If you want to talk, let me know. Feel free to write anything you want!
