Fed up in Bolingbrook...this case for the 99th time is being run by the STATE POLICE, Claar has no influence. Bolingbrook Police and the Village have nothing to do with the investigation, but I guess it is easier to throw out false claims than use facts. So typical and lazy.

I will never vote for that guy ever. I have lived in Bolingbrook for 14 years and cant stand the guy. He needs to resign or Retire! He is a fence rider and will for any which way the wind blows him. Just ask him how much it cost for his OFFICE at the Gulf Course. I know some one who worked on it!. Just get some one in here who can do the job right and move on.

Actually Claar had everything to do with the peterson case. He never brought the body up when they found it. Clearly covering that up for Drew I assume... Politics standing in the way of bringing a mom home to her kids for proper buriel. How sick is he!

The 42 year old motorist was killed not by hitting a mailbox, but a pot hole. I heard it on the scanners. Another famous cover up! Check the polie reports people!

Well, I say it won't be long before Claar is done as Mayor in BB. He is as
corrupt as Mayor Daley on a smaller scale. I do agree, he has impeded
the Peterson Case. I do feel however, that a resolution will be coming soon
for both Peterson and Claar. JMO

I agree, Wendy. If Claar was my friend, I would recommend him to retire. Now.

Breaking news from Amy. YOU ARE A LIAR, you did not hear that on the scanner because that was never said on the radio. It was from the mailbox, and she was speeding and took the curve too fast. In fact there is not a pothole in that area to begin with. Nice little lies and smears, you are pathetic. Please check the Police reports because that, being the truth, is what is in there. I'll be happy to call you out on your BS. And what you wrote about "when they brought the body up", you smoking some funny green herb?

I blame Claar for the Lindberg kidnapping, the sinking of the Lusitania, and the US defeat at the Alamo. It wasn’t Cubs fan, Steve Bateman, who messed the Cubs chances, it was Roger Claar at the game that day.
Bolingbrook is a nice town; Roger Claar has been a dedicated and successful mayor for years.
After 20+ years, I understand that familiarly breeds contempt but you small-minded folks should at least get some facts straight. The Peterson case was quickly handed over to the State Police. Claar had nothing to do with it…why would he?? What could he possibly gain by doing anything for Drew Peterson? Peterson is an embarrassment to the whole town – the last thing Claar want for Bolingbrook.
I hope he wins on the 7th. He’s got my vote and he earned it.

And Mussolini got the trains to run on time. No one is saying Roger hasn't done a few things right, but the truth is he has done more than a few things wrong as well. Things that are going to cause serious financial problems for the village in the very near future. He has used his position as mayor to fatten his million dollar campaign fund. He needs to go -- now!

As to your question - what could he possibly gain by doing anything for Drew Peterson? How about cover up the fact that they we're drinking buddies. You see, that's the problem with being a compulsive drinker you end up spending time with people you probably shouldn't. Besides, both Drew and Stacy worked for Roger at one time. So don't go acting like he wouldn't know Drew if he passed him on the street. He knew him. A lot better than he wants anyone to know.

You have obviously not been to Bolingbrook latley. Roger Claar is a drunk who has gotten several DUIs and has only gotten a slap on the wrist. Not to mention the wonderful golf course that he made for himself and yet the other golf course that he wants to build with our tax money. Yea hes a great mayor...lol

Any chance someone will actually have facts on this blog? The video was a cheap shot by some creepy sneak. If it were meant to prove something - it didn't hit the mark. I could have attended the St. Balderick fundraiser, filmed 4 mins. of Mayor Claar in attendance, helping raise funds for the cancer cure and proved the exact opposite outcome with my video.
I read some of Bonnie's tale - "Busy Bonnie got 205 signatures" - she assumed that was enough. Question for "Busy Bonnie" - how are you going to run a city of 60,000+ people if you do not have the time now to properly handled your petitions?
All in all good folks of Bolingbrook, you have a nice town - many many solid things happen there, with more to come ..much of it is due to Roger's unwavering suppport for Bolingbrook.- I assume the best person will win and assume you'll support that person.

Citizens for Bolignbrook First Responds to critisism
The Citizens for Bolingbrook First, hereafter referred to as "CFBF", has released a rebuttal to many claims made by Bolingbrook mayoral candidate Bonnie Kurowski-Alicea. Alicea is running a write-in campaign for mayor of Bolingbrook after having her name taken off the ballot. The local electoral board covering Bolingbrook is made up of Sandra Swinkunas, Carol Penning, Leroy Brown. Swinkunas and Penning are currently running for trustee and clerk respectivly and are both members of the, CFBF party which also includes incumbent mayoral candidate, Roger Claar.

Alicea alleges that Claar used his influence with this board to, "powerpunch his way in to office." CFBF responds by saying that Will County Clerk Nancy Shultz-Voots certified that Alicea had 42 unregistered voters on her petition for election and thus put her below the required minimum of 197 registered voter signatures.

Alicea takes issue with the Village of Bolingbrook's ownership of the Bolingbrook Golf Club along with Clow Airport and the Americana Estates subdivision. Alicea points to the 1.3 millions dollars in losses that the golf club takes each year as proof that it is, "nothing more than a hobby for the mayor (Claar)"

CFBF states in it's rebuttal that The Village of Bolingbrook is required to show the depreciation of the property on it's reports and that the gold club, "made $92,000 prior to depreciation." CFBF further says that the golf club has put Bolingbrook, "on the map" and that it has served Bolingbrook well by hosting weddings, golf outings, presentations, fundraisers, and other activities. They also say that, "the sole reason for building the course and lakes was to solve some regional storm water issues on 4,000 acres west of Kings Road." Bolingbrook Golf Club includes many lakes in it's design which have allowed the Village of Bolingbrook to not require retention ponds in subdivisons on the western half of Bolingbrook.

CFBF claims that, "The Village of Bolingbrook has not purchased any businesses." Alicea takes exception to this and asks on her website if this is, "deception again" Clow International Airport was built in the late 1950's by Oliver Boyd Clow and was a privately held airport up until 2004, when it was purchased by The Village of Bolingbrook. Bolingbrook has also taken on the role of residential developer in Americana Estates. A 225 lot high end community adjacent to the Bolingbrook Golf Club. The Village of Bolingbrook has built streets and infrastructure for the subdivsion and is currently selling lots for homesites.

For a complete list of the issues debated between these candidates please see the Citizens For Bolingbrook First Ad placed in the Bolingbrook Bugle or visit Bonnie Kurowski-Alicea's website, Bolingbrookmayor.com

And you are stupid enough to think voting for someone that recently worked at a Laser Quest and Discovery Zone with an online degree in management is going to be good for the city. She is a slob any way you look at her; professionally or in person.

Her resume is bogus and it stretches the truth.

As opposed to a misogynist, alcoholic (go ahead get you dictionary out, I'll wait) who endangers the community every time he gets behind the wheel.

Where did Roger work before he became Mayor? Wilco. And he resigned from that job when funds he was in charge of mysteriously turned up missing. Personally, her appearance doesn't bother me. Neither do her ethics. The same can't be said about Roger's. Besides, anybody who walks around town wearing those stupid GC sweater vests wherever he goes should not be criticizing anyone else's appearance.

Several articles indicate Bonnie K-A is a professor at North Central College with a PhD in psychology - check out NCC website for confirmation - she is not listed anywhere in a search of staff members. How can we trust someone to run our Village when we cannot even confirm their employment status.

Calm down Uncle Abe - I'm not calling you stupid or an idiot - I simple know the town pre Roger was a flat line - Roger made it "alive". He's is not a rich man. He lives in the same house he has lived in for 20 years. He lives a nice life style but not an over the top life style. He's in his 60s, he has no children at home, his wife works full time. He likes to go out in town. He loves to hob knob with the people of Bolingbrook. Please, don't take that fact and try to slip it into something corrupt or evil. If anybody's life has been in a spot light, it's been Mayor Claar. Do you think everyone is in on some sort of cover up??
In 20+ years he has amassed a powerful bankroll to fund project for Bolingbrook.(that he CAN NOT and HAS NOT tried to personally touch). I truly think he has done a great deal for Bolingbrook and will do more.
