We had quality candidates to choose from in this past election. But the voters decided, on more of the same, and that is what we have now. You are in a dream world if you think it is going to get better! The Peloquin cronies, are still running this city. There is no independence, from the Blue Island Independent Party. They lied to us. Look at Cicero ,Illinois. Look at Chicago, Cook County. Things will not get better until the corruption in this state is cleaned up.
as I said....We need QUALITY candidates, and that was not the case.

The reporter kadner is and idiot for believing Vargas in the first place. Vargas could have brought hope and change for the last twenty years and he didn't .

Give Mayor Rita time. Maybe he'll slip in an earmark for money for a Blue Island Bridge in his Casino Bill?

Vargas is still a puppet, he never changed Peloquin's commissioners at all. Same folks running all the departments. Same fraud and hiring schemes. Vargas is just great at keeping a lid on everything.
