Theres some real dishonest people in antioch
#23 Jan 7, 2013
its more widespread then just Antioch.
I can remember corruption in Fox Lake all the way back to when Armondo was mayor
or how about Hamm
and then there are articles like this one
or this fun historical article
So Fox Lake has a long history of crime and corruption.
But these days they have gotten better at hiding it under the rug.

Yep, and now it's almost time for the elections. Time for all the good taxpayers to vote in all the corrupt crooks again. All the "No-Goods" who claim to serve the people but who really "use" the people and laugh all the way to the bank. Yep, those nice paychecks they get for their worthless job performance. But who's watching them?? No one except the worthless supervisor,(Mr Smouse), and that's no threat, right Ms Marotta? Oh yeah, I've run into her a few times out and about on taxpayer time shopping, running around taking care of personal business or she's sitting at home doing ???? because I see her car in front of her house when it should be at the township office. I'm still trying to figure out what the Highway Commissioner does?? Solution: Save taxpayer money, abolish townships and let the County do their job!

I try my best to vote out the bums or to keep them from getting in.
So far it hasn't worked.
Obama is still President and Bender is still mayor.
Well at least i get another chance to try and vote out Bender.

Agreed, then you get some wanna be trustees who think they know a lot about nothing which includes Mr. Brent Bluthhardt, he even looks crooked. He's running for township trustee in Antioch, well he can keep running in the other direction cause he won't get my vote.

I agree with you. I have not heard positive things about Brent Bluthhardt -- people tell me he is a real slime ball. He definitely would not be good for Antioch government period or anywhere else for that matter. He has ties to the old blood of Antioch politics and we have been there and done that and we don't need any new blood to repeat old business, a vote for him would definitely be putting Antioch on the wrong path (yes, even for township government which is a joke to begin with). So no he won't be getting my vote either. He should just go slither back from whatever rock he came out from under.

Since, despite this belly-aching, there will in fact be an election in April and you will still continue to pay taxes, is there anyone you don't find a slimeball running for office? or anyone you would consider voting for?

That's a good question for EVERY town out here.
The choices usually are a corrupt / incompetent incumbent.
Or an unheard of person who will soon become no better and in some cases even worse then the incumbent.
Its really hard to get an honest, smart, and dedicated person to run for political office.
Even when you do its even harder to get them to win against a corrupt incumbent politician who'll break any legal/moral rule to get elected again.
I would love to see Fox Lake get some GOOD honest politicians.
But it probably won't happen in my lifetime.

Seriously?? Do you seriously believe that our snow removal system totally depends on the Antioch township Highway Commissioner?? Are you kidding me?? Well let me fill you in: Here is a Daily Herald partial article written 6/1/2011 and I quote, "Mark Ring: Antioch Township is paid $86,946 for 83 miles. There you have it, but remember that was 2 years ago and I'm sure he figures he's worth more than that now. HA! 83 MILES!! That breaks down to $1,048 per mile and he's laughing all the way to the bank. I think you have your concerns all wrong. The taxpayers are totally getting ripped off. Let the County or the Village do those 83 miles, and I'll bet they can maintain the roads for a heck of a lot less!! The townships NEED to GO and that includes ALL of them!
