JF stop the BS with your puppet AR and Mike. Mike has some history in Crete he needs to think about before running for anything.

How did you get a copy of the Tovos' income tax returns? Do they claim the "gifts" of the car usage anywhere? Finally does anyone know the name of the Mr and Mrs Tovo Inc that now runs the "community" Fall Faire?
Appears to me you are more concerned with finding "dirt" than discussing Tovo's approval as mayor. Sounds to me you are taking things a bit personally. Sounds to me like we should open the diary of your life and pick it apart moment by moment & piece by piece. Are you the IRS? Let's see your returns. Let's see your life's book and bank statements. The overtime issue of course is valid but you don't even address that issue, only seek to dig up dirt. This forum is titled approval of Dan Tovo as mayor, not pot shots at an individual you personally don't like. Stay on topic and stop being childish. Grow up and act like an adult and state facts and reasons regarding your vote and choice for our next mayor, stop fishing for negative personal information to spew and sell your opinions.

OK I have heard that one of the candidates has been arrested for abuse, but cannot find a thing when I search google (except on this forum). Could someone kindly tell me the truth or at least send me a link as to "legal troubles"?
People are their own worst enemies, but slandering someone on just a hunch does not work for me.
I can deal with truth and statistics --just not unsubstantiated whispers. What was that Bibical thing about feathers being scattered?

What kind of abuse do you mean? You can go to the Will County Clerk of the Court's website, do a search for Jay Farquar's name, and you will see it come up. The "OP" in the case name stands for "Order of Protection."

Thanks for the Will County Clerk website info - enlightening.

There is another great choice for Mayor, a guy named Bill Bailey. I decided to meet with him, and that meeting was more than thorough and lasted about four hours. I wanted to scratch way below the surface and see what this guy is really about. So here is some of what I learned:

He is a rather quiet, unassuming guy. Remarkably he listened to what I asked and gave thoughtful responses. Politicians are all about selling themselves, but Bill wanted to know just as much about my perspective as I did about his.

The long delayed Park Building -- he was the contractor who did the HVAC on it - and his part was finished in May of 2009! He also gave the city a discount on his services because that is the way he is. Knowing a small bit about construction, I know that once the heating AC electrical and plumbing systems are complete there is not any major interior work that needs to be completed. You throw up the drywall, do the ceilings and floors, and put some cosmetic touches on the facility. Two months max. The years of delay is one of the reasons Bill Bailey decided to run.

He had several years worth of notes of his thoughts on ways to improve how Village Hall relates to the community. Bill told me issues he uncovered, and problems he heard from fellow residents, and then he told me of solutions to get things done. Online bill paying can be done if one actually pursues it - there is not just one mechanism to do it, as one example.

Bill also told me about his friend who was dismissed. It sounded like the famous mercurial tempered mayor was having a bad day when he did it. I've talked to others who work at the Village and most everyone lives in fear of their jobs. Tell me how that negativity brings about a spirit of teamwork. It doesn't work, it never did.

So the reasons Bill Bailey is running for Mayor are numerous, complex, and documented for years. Anyone who wants to tackle our city and has a PLAN is my guy. Whiners, idiots and scammers need not apply.

Bailey has a facebook page he told me about - you should investigate too.

I to have had conversations with Bill Bailey,
and he is very smart man and humble.
he wants to serve the people of monee not tell them what to do, like the current king and queen tovo.
He will start with things like taking down the MAYOR PARKING ONLY sign that is #1 parking spot at village hall.ect.
Get rid if Chicago style of government and take the TOVOS WITH.

At the Golf Vista Forum I saw several people who did not live within Golf Vista in attendance. But...a lovely man cam eup to me an asked if I was married. I answered yes, but not to Bill Bailey.(I am working with Bailey on his campaign, and he asked me to come along for moral support). No one else was questioned, of course.

Four Mayoral Canidates: Ms. Barfoot had her husband, Ms. Farquhar had his slate entourage, Mr. Tovo has his Ms.-- yet common courtesy of allowing each candidate one person was not extended. Missy Tovo had something to the man about me, ensuring I would be kicked out.

And so it went. Out in the parking lot, I saw the Mitsubishi loaner that the Tovos drive around in parked in the lot. Was this official Village Business? Was it official Village Business when Missy was at the Doc's Drugs drive in picking up a prescription? Or when both Tovos went to vote? How about when they stalked on of Bailey's campaign workers?

Factss. Now more speculation and questions:
Wonder if the Tovos or WE THE PEOPLE pay for the gas they use? How about the insurance for the car? Have we seen a Village sticker on it?

Well then ask everyone you know who complains if they are registered to vote. The LAST DAY to register for the mayoral election is tomorrow (WEDNESDAY). Online at Will County Clerk Site or postparked with residency proof (copy of utility bill and drivers license) by the time the post office closes (4:00 PM)

You call the search for the truth "dirt"? Sorry whoever you are, but my search for facts has led me nowhere. Too much info is missing, and I agree with the original poster that questions are the appropriate method to get answers. Most answers from the Tovos have been smoke-and-mirrors.

They really believe we are all stupid. Personally, I delve into the truth. You are correct in saying everyone has a Past. But when choices affect our community we should DEMAND answers. I do not care what anyone does in his or her personal life. I am relentless when people who fancy themselves as guardians of my money try the hide and seek games.

You have every right to vote as you please, as is your right. I will as well. But when I see vulgar language, name calling, and junior high type conduct in my humble opinion it is unnecessary. Frankly, I was leaning towards Bill Bailey as my choice as were the 7 votes in my home until I started seeing the type of posts his apparent campaign workers were posting in this forum and others. How in the world is the attitude of that campaign going to represent ALL of us in Monee with the hatred and personal attacks they are spewing to and about anyone who doesn't agree. Let's look at the leadership skills of the candidates. Tovo's we know because we have 4 years of his leadership, if your not happy with it don't vote for him. Farquar we know because we have had 2 years to deal with him and we can read his public record and his ability to resolve conflicts in his personal life (based on the record in Will County Clerk as referred to in other posts it is not a good record). Bill Bailey, who I do know personally, we have no record of his leadership. But denying his excessive use of alcohol publicly and his lack of involvement in the past is not the answer. Deal with it. It has been said that a character of a man (or woman) can be determined by the things they do when they think no one is watching. I don't believe a thing these candidates say they will do, I look at how they behave when the chips are down and they think no one will find out. Bailey owning a nice home means nothing so did Jesse Jackson Jr. and Blago and George Ryan. Having things is NOT character, integrity, and leadership. DOING things is.
