You gotta admit, he's got an amazing group of trustees though! How'd he get them...!?

The only people in Melrose who have done less than Jesse Martinez, is the ticket of trustees. It's like the semi-cute girl who only hangs out with her uglier, more overweight friends. Look at me! I've done way more than these clowns/ I'm prettier than these girls.

I give Jesse credit, he finally found people that have done less than he does!

Vote Martinez!
oh no

Its hard to believe. Those credentials on all 7 of them are horrible. Then they put down more negative things about the current administration. That's all fine and dandy but no where do they report the plan of action to make changes! Again, they are bad so vote for me. This seriously can't be for real. They were better off not making a website.

Their website is better than Serpico's website serpico4mayor.com . I am voting for reform. I see issues about Melrose not personal attacks. The reason they put negative things on the current administration is because those things are a reality under Serpico.

Aren't there Issues on the website, and doesn't it ask the visitor to contact them for further discussion? I bet even if they had a step by step analysis that was pages long, you would still find something to complain about. "oh, their issues are too long, people aren't going to spend all day reading that stuff" I can't believe how much time you people spend talking about Martinez. Secretly you must think he has a shot, and you're throwing everything but the kitchen sink at him to try and prevent him from winning.

That is the only explanation I can think of considering no one has even mentioned Serpico's website. Now that's a useless website. It has a youtube link that doesn't go anywhere. It gives a story about each candidate. How are those candidates that much better than Martinez's candidates? This is another situation where you can't be pleased no matter what was on there. I bet if they all had doctorates your response would be "oh they think they are better than us" That website tells you that there are MP Latinos for Serpico (which the majority of the people in those pictures arent melrose parkers) and thats about it. Where are their issues? where is their plan of action? You know what their plan of action is? To tell voters that if Jesse is elected, he will raise water rates. Scare tactics at its finest.

just read the bio's on the candidates. There is no comparison. Serpico and his candidates blow them out of the water. If you so otherwise, you are only making yourself look bad!

Their website is typical political rhetoric from the challenger. Throwing stones at the incumbent while laying out vague plans that are set against obvious goals. I'm not saying its right or wrong. It's politics 101. It's the website they needed to make.

What makes it funny is who's on the ticket. It's like a group of jokes went to a political advisor and had him make a website for them. It's funny. They're ambitious. They're wide-eyed happy. And unfortunately for them, they're a few tacos short of a combination platter.

Looking at the site I actually feel bad for them. It's like a cute site I'd expect a high schooler running for student council would make. Yey, good job, Jesse and friends! We're so proud of you and your site. No matter what, win or lose, you made us proud. You're such adults!
Good job good effort

Costco. Miejers. New Winston Plaza. 119 brand new alleys. Garbage picked up twice a week. Beautification of Broadway and Lake. Unbelievable home football field for our kids. And my personal favorite 5 Guys!

In a recession Melrose figured out a way to actually bring business into town.

A bed time story.
There is a pathetic young man who had a psychotic break from reality not too long ago in the parking lot of Melrose Park P.D.. Let's just call him J.T. or Jr. for short. He has a pension for blaming everybody else for his problems and poor decisions. He blames his ex-girlfriend for getting mad at him when he is unwelcome at her home at 3 a.m. while his wife and new born baby are asleep in his foreclosed home. He blames his other ex girlfriend for bankrupting him and keeping him from making his mortgage payments when he makes $70,000/yr and was single. He blamed the me and Lt. Dimaio for making him mentally unstable by keeping him on midnights and coming to the police station with his hands wrapped up like a boxer, looking for me and Dimaio to kick our asses. He blamed his cousin for causing me to keep him on midnights. He was stripped of his gun. and sent off for a medical evaluation. But we felt sorry for the lad and did not fire him. Instead we eventually gave him his gun back and kept him on the payroll sitting behind a desk.
But this was not good enough for him. He wanted his job back on the streets because he missed visiting his ex-girlfriend while his wife and baby were asleep. Even though he was unwelcome there.
So Me and Serpico gave him a way back. We made him sign his soul over to us and work for Serpico's campaign. Because you know he has a family to feed. Now he goes around putting up Serpico signs where they are not wanted. Like his grandfather's house. They keep getting taken down but he returns early in the morning and puts another one up. They are very elderly and do not support or plan on voting for Serpico. You see blood is thicker than water. But he puts them up anyway. They are old and can be manipulated by his sob stories. This makes him look good to us. He goes around town with his newly recruited crew of childhood friends who live in Stone Park and talk about how great Serpico is and how no Mexican's like his cousin Jesse Martinez.

The message in this tale of woe is what a false perception signs project and how sad and far a pathetic individual can sink into selling his soul and lose all self-respect. It is also indicitive of a sorry man-boy who can not take responsibilities for his own immature, reckless, and selfish behavior.
I feel sorry for his wife and child. BUT WE HAVE HIM WHERE WE WANT HIM. LIKE SO MANY OTHERS. THIS IS THE REALITY OF SERPICO.

Where's Alberto Culver, International Harvester, Benjamin Moore Paint, Kiddieland? 119 brand new alleys? guess who paid for that? Ill build you an entire addition to your home...just also give me your checkbook. Beatification of Broadway and Lake? Thats beautiful to you? What happened to the lake street corridor project?

Didn't we waste a couple hundred thousand dollars resurfacing the field with synthetic turf, right after it was first built?

5 guys is awesome.

You know how Melrose figured out a way to actually "bring business" into town? TIF's and massive borrowing.
Speaking of massive borrowing, I noticed on the RMP website the Cook County treasurer's report on Local Government debt. Melrose pensions only 32% funded. I guess Serpico saw some extra cash lying around and decided to put it to use. Maybe thats how he paid for the Division street uselessnessifictation project?

I'd be pretty upset if i was a village worker. Not only are they being forced to campaign for MVP, but Money is literally being taken out of their pockets.

But you are right, Great job Melrose!

Very well put.
I doubt that any of the serpico supporters have the brainpower to pick their knuckles off the ground to write something meaningful and on issue without resorting to personal attacks or insults.

You are fantastic at saying a lot while not really saying anything. There is no substance or proof in anything you say. If it's a fact you say it was useless and if you have no proof you make up a theory and pass it off as a fact... only ignorant people are influenced by someone like you. People that believe we didn't land on the moon or that 9/11 was an inside job... that's who you appeal to.

Prove me wrong.
Are those businesses still in Melrose? How did the alleys get paid for, by themselves? So the field has never been resurfaced? How many TIF districts are there in Melrose? Are you saying the cook county treasurer's report is wrong? wait who am I kidding, treasurer Pappas is only saying those things cause she supports Jesse. Does that make you feel better?
you are funny

Jesse claims there are too many italians over hispanics in the current administration when really there are 3 italian trustees and three latino trustees. Yet jesse picks 5 latino trustees and 1 italian trustee... Hypocrisy at its finest?
