Why didn't the Patch report on the petition challenge going on in Worth Township? The Unity Party's petitions and candidates are being challenged. The Worth Township Community First Party raised a challenge that Assessor Toscas and Trustee Lind should not be holding Village Trustee positions in their Villages (Crestwood and Chicago Ridge) and that they should be disqualified as candidates on the Township slate. Toscas is running for re-election as Township Assessor and also as Mayor of Crestwood. Lind is running for Township Trustee again and is already a Chicago Ridge Village Trustee. The Township Electoral Board is headed by Supervisor Murphy. There has been one hearing to decide these issues and a second one has been scheduled. The incumbent slate is at risk of being knocked off of the ballot by the challenges.

IF ANY DEMOCRAPS, LIBERALS, MARXISTS, PROGRESSIVES OR COMMIES ARE
ON THIS LIST THEY SHOULD BE DEFEATED OR THROWN OFF THE BALLOT AND THEN BE "PUT TO DEATH" JUST SO THEY CAN'T RETURN.

The Community first party is fighting the Unity Parties corruption. The Unity Party has two candidates that are running for two offices at the same time. They want two paychecks each.

Who actually is the Assessor now? I ask because I saw that Dietrick won but isn't in office according to the website, something isn't right with this. All the papers and website for the elections board says Dietrick won so why isn't he in office?

Toscas stays in office till the end of the calender year. Dietrich then takes over Jan 1, 2014. Has always been at the end of the calender year.

Is there any noise about the next Worth Township election or are we stuck with this Community First bunch of thugs? I hope that the voters are not fooled with signs and slogans again. It takes a long time to set up a successful Township election operation so I am hoping to see some action. All of the Mayors in Worth Township have to get together and toss this bizarre group out of office.
