There is a man from Carpentersville, Illinois, who embodies the character America needs right now if it is to recover from its economic depression. Sadly, he is one of a dying breed—and that has big implications for America.
Tom Roeser is fighting the battle of his life. Tom is the president and co-owner of Otto Engineering, the biggest employer in Carpentersville. Tom is battling to prevent his hometown from turning into a post-industrial slum. It is a tough, frustrating fight. He was handicapped by local laws, uncooperative county and state officials, and aid organizations unwilling to commit to battle.
