In this upcoming Election do you really think that preciding Mayor Rulien actually has a chance to be Mayor another two years again? He's not a Mayor but a dictator.

Businesses lost, secret land deals. What happened to the development west of I55. We just had to spend 2 million dollars right away to get a land owner annex into the city but now he renigs on the deal to hold out for more money for his property. Screw the city again. None of the new land annexations have brought any money into the city. But we have zoo! And we wasted a good grant to put a fence around it!. Now thats where our priorities are.

Is that one thing a cow or a big ant eater, Everytime I go by I look at it and cant tell what the hell it is.
I hear there going to put offices and restrooms in the shed!.
Its a shame that Kentucky chicken or taco bell couldn't go there. Maybe at slum fest we could have a big barbque and roast Girot oh I mean giraffe.

Mr. Mayor claims that the "Zoo" is something to look at when people come into town or whatever. It's stupid and ugly. Put that time and effort into something usefull around here. No wonder the kids get into trouble. The stores are dirty and employees are rude. The ONLY store that's not that way is BP. I do like living here to a certain extent. It's also really sad the people are that excited for Taco Smell and KFC. Really? I mean come on, I under stand it's closer but, it's just another resturaunt.
Braidwood is all about gossip, eating, drinking, getting high. I'm just glad that I'm going to do something with my life.:D Have fun you clowns that live Topix land.

First this topic was about who is running for mayor not the zoo. If everyone is so dissatisfied with how and by whom this town is being ran, then more concerned residents should show up at the city council meetings and make yourself heard. Blabbing on this site will get nothing accomplished. Besides that, most of this crap is just gossip, lies and people starting rumors. If you want things to change you have to speak to and at the right people. Just remember to research who you are voting for next time. These people were put in their position by a majority of your votes and they can taken out the same way. Stop hiding behind this web site and speak up where it will do some good.

If you honestly think the mayor of Braidwood is a dictator, you either have no idea what a dictator is, or you're just an idiot.

Does anyone know who all the candidates are for mayor. I know I can probably get a list at city hall just trying to save myself the time.

What a bullshxxt artical in the Braidwood rag. Mayor really grabbing at thin air. The last time I was in a council meeting the Administrator don't have the say so to purchase land but the Commissioners do.
Wasn't it the commissioners who approved to purchase, not Andy!. Also the land was only going to be purchased because general fund was 2 million in debt, and they could buy the land through TIFF and when they sell it to some sap they would put the money into general fund to bring it out of debt. But the economy took a shit and now the City is holding property! Instead of trying to fill these open lots you put up some ugly eye sore and call it an attraction, something for Braidwood to have visitors stop and say I want to spend money here! Your the joke! What happened to the golfcart shop and sales center you were building??
You filled the wetlands in for free and now we have another ugly empty lot!
