Nina is a person who can't be reguarded a a frend of Kankakee.
She just passed the largest property tax increase in Kankakee history. She says it's only 3%, but in reality she had the property assessments lowered as much as 29% 1st, then gave a huge increase to make it look like only 3% increase. If a property can be sold in this city, the new owners will be buried in taxes unless they purchace the home for the assessed value.
Dan Sullivan is the only one with any clear plans on how to fix our current situation.
Sullivan will be getting my vote.

Dan Sullivan will be getting my vote as well. Nina has proven to me that she doesn't really care about the town just her and her friends. Tim no way that just isn't happening.

I'll take my chances on someone new not tied into the machine.

Porters platform, bring more ex-felonies into town and give them tax breaks to start business. Porter has no platform.

By the way Porter the Obama train has sailed get own own creative ideas, you know your logo that you stole the idea from Obama.

Porter do you actually live in Kankakee and own a house and pay taxes in Kankakee or are you still using your girlfriends address?

No to Porter, Schmidt on the democrat ticket.

If you guys really want to see a change you all should ask for a republican ticket and vote for Dan Sullivan in the primary. Think about it he is the only one running against Nina Epstein in the primary and if Dan beats Nina in the primary than Nina is done she out as Mayor of Kankakee. Than you can decide who to vote for in the general election to be Mayor of Kankakee. So lets send the city a message now and remove Nina from office on February 26th. Lets end it for her and the corrupt ways and corrupt friends by voting for Dan Sullivan on the Republican ticket.

When Dan wins the primary that alone is going to send the City of Kankakee the loudest message they have ever heard. The message that us taxpayers have had enough of this machine sinking Kankakee.
