He is the BEST Mayor since Mike King & is far better the Frank Bergman. In less then 6 months Mr Cornwell has fix half of the sewer breaks that our previous Mayor could & wouldn't in the 8yrs he was Mayor. Has cleaned up vacant lots & Code Enforcement is actually doing their job, unlike under Frank Bergman rein.
For Sure

Yes he is doing a good job. Better than the last mayor did in the years he was here. I hope the sewer problem will be resolved soon. They are working on them, but not in my area yet. Hurry up. It smells like shyt when you pump those things out. That cannot be healthy breathing those fumes. Help!!!! Beware, don't drink the water. Buy bottled water. The water stinks.I pay three water and sewer bills and the water is not fit to drink.

I agree with, number 9, he is the best mayor since Mike King. He is trying to get things done which is more than Frank did. I will vote for him again if he runs.

and what I find funny is those morons over in Cahokia Heights that have signs up for Radford don't realize Radford is part of their sewer problem because he back Bergman for his unearned county job.
Those people went through almost 6yrs world of sewer breaks & Bergman & Radford(who works for the county) did absolutely NOTHING to help them or even try & fix the problems. Bergman even went so for to buy $500,000 worth of sewer pipe & it just sat over in a vacant for several years yet did NOTHING.
In less then a year Cornwell had over half of the sewer problems fixed. I guess those folk should call and thank Radford & Bergman for having to smell sewage for the past 6-7yrs.

for those who marked my response, PLEASE prove me wrong then. Good luck w/that.
But until then you are as much as part of the problem as those who caused it because you back Radford & Bergerboy & the St Crooked County Board memebers

Love Gary and the new administration - and I too am damn glad I voted and support all of them. More changes and improvements have taken place in Cahokia in the last year than Cahokia has seen in many, many years.

More is coming folks - we can't go anywhere but up...

You think Frankie Bergerboy was a "GOOD" mayor??????
What Kool-Aid have you assclowns been drinking??
He was a total screw up, putting our city in the red & giving out raises to his select few when he tells the union there is no money for raises or insurance. Good god trudy he is the worse mayor this village has ever seen even considering how bad the last few were.
Here's a list of his fine deeds...
Lets see what has Frank done for Cahokia.
Frank spent almost $10million for Parks only to have a YMCA that only pays $1 a year to rent & the village has to maintain the buildings.
Frank give out about $20,000plus in raises to Ms Halter(her 2nd BIGG Raise), Betty Sharp & Mr Sprauge and I believe Mr Tory.
Frank was hired only his family & friends to work for the village.
Frank file & receive a $20,000 check for falling down some stairs when no one was there to witness it(like we know it really happened at work) & then NOT pee in a bottle for a drug test like every other worker would have done & then have his board OK the settlement even though there are lots of unsettled cases w/the Village employees that are 3-4-5yrs old.
Frank fell out of a moving truck while working for Commonfields, how smart is that.
Frank refuses to sign contract that has been on his desk for 3-4yrs.
Frank say he drove the Villages $38,000 SUV and filled it up on tax payers money to a Las Vegas and then lied saying he went to Tulsa, Okla.
Frank said he had no knowledge of Charles Robinson and James Allen working 96hrs a week, which we all know is a lie.
It was Frank and Harry Halter, who was the husband of the mayors then appointment secretary, argued just after midnight on the mayors front lawn. Then Cahokia police used a Taser on Halter, who was then a part-time Alorton police officer.
It seems it was Franks fault that security didn't thwart a theft in December 2006 that netted thieves $61,500 worth of windows and brass mailbox doors from the former Parks campus. Village employees John Torry and Robert Holmes moonlighted as the campus security then, but no one was on duty at the time because they were off for the Christmas holiday. Since when does security guards take a day off???
Frank tried to replace Sheila Ware when she was sick. Frank tried & then have the guts to say "he didn't know Ware suffered an aneurysm" and then went onto say "My thoughts and prayers go out every day for her" How can he say his thoughts & prayers went out to her every day when he said HE DIDN'T KNOW ABOUT IT???
Frank suspended a Village worker for refusing to drive an unsafe, unlicensed & non-inspected truck.
Frank suspended a Police Officer for giving his nephew a DUI or DWI.
Frank suspended 2 workers for refusing to hand out political fliers during work hours.
Frank fired Debbie Barker because of "supposed" stolen money & then refused to give her job back even after the judge told him there was no case against Ms Barker.
Frank OK TIF money to be spent on the Nova Plaza only to have it take 6yrs to fill it half way.
Frank said it was his idea to have the overpass built, yeah sure he did & he invented the internet w/Al Gore also.
It was Frank's idea to pave & put sidewalks down Judith Ln just because Prax Air decided to move back to Cahokia, even though there are some streets that were in much worse shape that should have been fixed.
Frank wasted our tax dollars on having Paris Ave repaved when it was apparent it didn't need it.
Heck I could go one but why........

I support Gary and I will vote for him again. Cahokia is looking better than it ever has. People are actually working. If you see someone not working, call the mayors office and report them. When Bergman was in office, no one was doing anything. Three people standing around leaning on shovels and talking. I actually see people working and the appearance of Cahokia has improved and alot has been cleaned up and mowed. I will vote for him on the next election. Good job Gary!

STFU you F'ing Moronic Sybil, you must be jealous that no one listens to your lies anymore, but then when you sleep w/the Radford/Bergerboy/Kern/Sprauge /Radford group the only way you get folks to even respond to you is by stealing someone screen name. Anyone w/an ounce of brains(which u have none of) would know I didn't make your post.

BUT I am glad you keep posting all the crap Franklin Bergerboy did to Cahokia. The more you do it the more people will know what a putz all of those running the county are.

What Frank did was in the past. Lets all get out and vote on March 20th to keep a 132 million dollar tax increase to build a new school that we don't need.
Get out and vote on the 20th agaisn't the new school.
It doesn't take but a few minutes to vote but it takes a lot of years to pay for it and much higher taxes.

Radford and McCall are in support of the tax increase. Just another reason to hate their asses.

and let's not forget he worked on Bergerboys campaign first.
Personally I believe it was all a set up so Bergerboy wouldn't take the fall for voted fraud himself. Franks own mother(bless her soul) had said Frank bought votes in both elections, and this came from a very very close friend of Doris's.
And let's not forget it was even taken to court where the judge himself broke the law by allowing the photo copied signature of Bobbie Robinson on the petitions which is against the law.
