What do you all think about Tim Schmidt wanting to run for mayor of Kankakee again but this time running as a democrat?

I think he and Karen are only in it for their own personal gain. Isn't Tim and Karen broke and loosing property they can't afford? Or is it because the well dries up on the tax scam in Kankakee since he was a big player in that owning the building ins that had the fake offices in them.

I think Tim would be bad for the city but good for Tim and Karen.

I can't and wont support Tim Schmidt. Tim is really only in this for his own gain. Tim keeps saying the same administration has run this town for over 20 years and nothing has changed, If you remember Tim was part of that admin for a very long time until Don Green fired him. Now Tim wants to switch parties to be a Democrat hoping everyone will support him, it just seems like more of the same old same old with a new paint job. Ask Tim and his wife how they feel about the Kankakee Police sometime.

I think Tim Schmidt would make a great mayor. No one cares for and has invested in Kankakee more than Tim Schmidt. He will have an honest and open government and work for the betterment and improvement of Kankakee. He is the only one with the Economic Experience to help Kankakee. He is endorsed by the firefighters local and they put their trust in Tim Schmidt

Tim Schmidt was never part of any tax scam and to say he was is wrong. Tim ran for mayor 4 years ago and his finances were just fine which proves he only wants to improve Kankakee and wants the best for it. He invested all his money in Kankakee because he loves and believes in it. Tim and Karen have never been greedy individuals and if you really knew them you wouldn't say things about them. Vote of Tim Schmidt.

Lol...Looks like Karen commenting for Tim as usual. Tim's finances may have been fine 4 years ago but they aren't fine now. How many properties are in foreclosure that Tim and Karen own?

Yes Tim did make a lot of money off of the tax sharing scam that is now costing Kankakee hundreds of thousands now in law suits. Tim owned the buildings and rented the space for the companies to have their fake offices here in Kankakee. Remember Inspired Development big donor to Tim's champaign owned by Don Salon.

I wish I had an inside connection like Tim did when he bought the Majestic Theatre building for $1.00 that's right $1.00 from the city of Kankakee.

Tim is claiming 30 years of experience with development and the City of Kankakee. Well Tim has made a very good living off of the taxpayers of Kankakee. Downtown is dead it isn't developed at all it's parking lots. Yes Tim you do have experience and a lot of it with the corrupt Kankake city government remember working for Mayor Johnson and being Mayor Don Green's "guy" for many years.

Tim will be my last choice for mayor of Kankakee. We know Nina is dirty at least she doesn't hide it. Tim on the other hand is trying to hide it claiming to be this straight shooting honest good guy.

Oh and Tim why are you running as a democrat? Are you afraid to run in a primary against Nina? Switching from being a life long Republican to now running as a democrat to me says you are shady and acting like a snake.

Thats funny, because he used to make fun of Phil Hodak and his bad heart. Why did the city have to take care of a burned out old stoner like Phil?

Stop telling lies about the Schmidt's. They are good people who love Kankakee. You guys are so far from the truth it's incredible. You should be ashamed of yourselves. Tim Schmidt will be a great mayor.

I think it's pretty cowardly and childish to go on to some insignificant little internet blog and start trashing Tim in such a way that he can't defend himself.
What's your real motivation to state such ignorant lies? It's obvious you have some kind of agenda and it's equally obvious that you are here to just verbally assassinate someone who isn't here to defend themselves. Why not put something up on facebook so the rest of Kankakee can lamb baste your lieing ass.
Yeah because you are a little weak coward that's why. You're the slimy little snake element that this town should be worried about. It shows in every word you've typed here.
I mean why would any one of you that are part of this two party charade be upset that Tim is running Democrat??? It can only strengthen the Dem. party and remove a person from the Rep. side that wasn't to the majorities liking in the first place.
I know Tim personally and know him to be an extremely courageous man who invested every red cent he has in Kankakee River North/The Freight House Pub when no one was investing ANYTHING into Kankakee's economy. He and Karen struggle night and day to make that business a success and for anyone to see that as a BAD thing doesn't know the first thing about doing business in Kankakee.
I support TIM SCHMIDT for mayor of Kankakee because I believe in his vision of the future for our town and have faith in his ability to bring to fruition the things that Kankakee business and citizens have so sorely missed.
Neither Tim nor his constituents will be bullied by liars with agendas other than bettering Kankakee's future so go find something else to do like play with a shiny toy or something you little piss ant.

Tim Schmidt has my vote. Anyone who would stand up for the community against the proposed mega Chicago garbage dump near the river has my vote. Yes, he was fired for taking a stand for the community and all of us who drink Aqua river water. This means he is a man of character. He would not participate in the selling out of the community for the money. Now, he has haters. This comes with the territory when you stand up to be counted.

HA! Schmidt did next to nothing to bring downtown back to life and now she, sorry I mean he wants to do the same for the city.
And as for this being a forum where he cannot defend himself, maybe that's because karen won't let him.

To Kankakee Revolution, you are on the same insignificant website you are running your mouth about. This is a forum for good/bad comments. Quit coming on the site if you don't like it.
I am not a former cook there. I was a server. I was treated horribly and the only people that know that are Tim, Karen, myself, and my family. I completely understand the stress of the restaurant business, especially trying to get one off the ground and running. But, to treat innocent people the way they did is just wrong, unprofessional, and just down right disgusting. I believe strongly in Karma. It was mostly Karen, but like I said earlier, Tim is a puppet.
I could care a less about Tim being Mayor or not. It makes no difference to me one way or the other. I just feel that if a person cannot handle their own finances, loses their home, and cant run a business that they should have nothing to do with the welfare of our county.

First off if ignorance is bliss half of you must be living in the garden or eden and shouldn't be concerned with kankakee politics.

I have lived and worked along side Tim in Kankakee for the past 25+ years and to say that he has done nothing to improve the city or even downtown leads me to believe that you either can't read or just choose not to. The Farmers Market, music festival, landscapping / cleanup of downtown, and investing in the continued use of the majestic center and sullys are a few of the more public contributions that Tim has       made to our community whether or not he was employed by the city at the time. Why would Tim lease office space in the majestic to KCC, arsenaue optics, black betty's , the coffee suite, or Franks music shop if it was SOOO easy to collect rent from invisible tennants from Chicago?  Its because he cares about the city and the future success of small business in this town.
To say that he lessens the sullys name every time its mentioned is shameful. Without Tims restaurant it would have went from a place filled with great memories in kankakee, to just another boarded up           establishment.

Without even being employed by the CofK Tim has been reaching out to other communities that have made their success' from  cities similar to ours. If we keep voting for HAND PICKED mayors that will continue with the same agenda we CANT expect a different result. Ask Dennis Baron if he wasn't approached to run for mayor before they landed on epstien. And to think that Tim would not already be the Mayor had he not stood up against the landfill is crazy.

To assume Tim is in it for personal gain holds no strength to any argument. If he wanted to be mayor he would be. He wants to be chosen as Mayor of the city he loves not granted the title.

When people ask "Why a democrat all of a sudden?" . You need only look a bit closer to the last election primary. About 6mo before campaigning Green fires Tim. Green asks around for a candidate to run republicab against Tim. Epstein finally agrees after a few No's from other more preferred candidates. Greens cronies shuttle (literally) people to the polls and Tims out of the running. And if you don't believe me hop down into riverview and ask joanne shuade what she was doing on primary election day 4years ago. I'm curious as to what she would say.

Tim has never lived a luxurious lifestyle yet people here are trying to make him look like Lacost or Yeats as if he's been cashing fat checks for the last 30 years. I just love watching the anti-schmidt republicans start scrounging for ways around a Tim Schmidt mayor. Now that they cant control his votes they jump immediatly to public slander. Between the mailers and pages like these it is laugable to watch.

I will say that is nice seeing concern from republicans other than their tax cuts, Obama going door to door taking our guns, and having the Anti-christ in the white house. But all I can really say is the public attacks on Tim are some of the most cowardly attemptS to keep him out of office.

The fact of the matter is that Tim is Kankakee. He lives it and breaths it. Running republican or democrat should not matter. He knows what he's doing and isn't affraid to ask for help where help is needed.  And Kankakee NEEDS HELP. Hes asking for your help to finally put a stop to th e corruption in kankakee and get the city headed back in the right direction.     

All hes asking for is votes. Its up to us too choose. Ask yourself what you currently like about how the city is  run and then try to vote for another   local republican. Tim is the right choice.

I was made aware of this forum today. It's never been one I would go to and now I know why. This is where cowardly little men and women go to trash people in secret.
Count yourself lucky you don't work for them anymore because life for you my friend would not be one of much fun working with me. The votes will speak for themselves.

PS
When you've dumped all of your worldly values into a business of your own and pushed with everything you have to make it succeed here in Kankakee then open your mouth. Till then, put a sock in it and keep browsing the classifieds because I'm sure one such as you is still out of work...

I absolutely count myself lucky that I don't work for them anymore!!! As far as me being out of work, that is by choice. I don't have to work! My mortgage is paid, cars are paid off, and have an amazing home life. I can guarantee you my life is so wonderful because of the KARMA I mentioned earlier. I don't treat people like garbage!!!! It is all about character buddy!
