I have to say that one of my guilty pleasures is posting annonmously to this blog, and reading all of the local gossip. I am a little new school, but, I think that if we the people, in order to form a more perfect union, would look at the root of the problems that we have in the suburbs. 1. Low voter turnout (average 16%)which means that a great deal more than 1/2 of the people that are eligible to vote, don't even bothr. We could call them lazy or apathetic, but the truth of the matter is that most people that don't vote, don't do it because the feel that it doesn't make a difference. Why? Because our officials don't run on campaign platforms or issues, they run on popularity. It is not hard to get 1700 people to vote for you, and they know that. Most of the people that vote are the family and friend of village employees. They are not voting for leadership, they are voting to keep their own jobs, which they hold at all costs. So, the 16% of the population that is employed or supported by the village runs the town. The bigger question, after the gossip and mud slinging, is what do we want from our elected officials, is it feasible, and how do we make this a campaign issue?
What I really want is for Dolton to professionalize its staff and day-to-day operations, reinvent its community identity by involving concerned residents, promote the ideas of ethics and efficiency and get a strategic plan of where we want to be over time. I get the feeling that our sentiment is as survivalists and we're just trying to make it. If that's the case, the foreseeable future will be difficult b/c we find ourselves reactively digging ourselves out of pittfalls instead of proactively avoiding them.

The Stubbs slate is a Shaw slate and everyone in Dolton should be aware of that fact. they will continue the ghost payrolling and I heard that all of the SHAWS flunkies and croonies have been slowly moving back to DOlton to take over the village. You certainly don't want this group in office they will really take us to the bank and steal all of our money. STOP THE STUBBS SIMS LOCKHART LOWE AND GREEN GROUP. RUN LIKE HELL IN THE OTHER DIRECTION. LEWIS IS BAD BUT THESE PEOPLE ARE WORSE. THERE ARE OTHER CANDIDATES OUT THERE. YOU DONT NEED A TEAM TO RUN OR FIX THIS VILLAGE. JUST GET RID OF LEWIS HARRIS JEFFERSON GREEN - BEEN IN OFFICE TOO LONG.

I know Mrs. Stubbs and I know she cares about the people in Dolton unlike the other Two canidates for Mayor 1. Mary Avant and 2. Riley Rogers . Neither could find anybody that would run on their team as a slate because they are not in this race for the concerns of the people of Dolton, Mrs. STUBBS, I promise you she will work for the people and with them.If you really want to see our village change for the better? APRIL 9TH. VOTE FOR STUBB--SIMS--GREEN--LOWE--LOCK HART A TEAM THAT WILL WORK TOGETHER FOR THE PEOPLE OF THE VILLAGE OF DOLTON.

This blog is very insightful, to say the least. It seems to me that the main problem is folks are not getting up and voting due to lack of truthful information about the candidates. Don't go by hear say- that's what got Drew Peterson convicted! The truth of the matter is people don't care what's going on in their community until it directly affects them. If someone is voting for the current Mayor it's because something he did that resonated well with them, and if someone else isn't voting for him it's because of something he did that pissed them off! Wether you know the candidtates personally should not be a reason to vote for them, but unfortunately that's how the majority of voters will vote. It's never about who's best for the job, but who they like. Mayor Lewis hasn't been a fair man and is such a hater that he will let his personal feelings get in the way of his job and the betterment of the Village..this is the truth. His judgment is impaired or there's no way in the world he would have appointed his daughter as the General Manager to run a facility for seniors when her lack of compassion, care and concern for her own mother is non-exsistant. More people have lost thier jobs working under his leadership due to his own insecurities. Greed, jealousy are his constant companions and will always be. That goes for most politicians! No way the people can ever really win. Pick your poison people and deal with it.

I know this Mrs Stubbs also she's an actress and she's good see she has you fooled too! she cares about herself and what she can get out of being mayor of dolton if she wins this would be her best role,she needed to have people on her slate because she had to have a background so she could be center stage, guess everyone forgot about when she ran for trustee DOES THE WORD FRAUD COME TO MINE? it's about power not the people with her,I promise you she will work for herself and hide behind the people.

People of Dolton, IT IS THAT TIME AGAIN - I WANT OT THANK YOU FOR MAKING A CHANGE IN 2011 - WE MUST WE MUST DO THE SAME AGAIN. LEWIS JEFFERSON GREEN HARRIS MUST GO. DO NOT MAKE THE SAME MISTAKE - DO NOT VOTE FOR THESE INDIVIDUALS. They are the problem all have been in office since 2008 or before. TIMES UP. We have seen the demise of the community and the only way ONLY WAY we can proceed to the future is by ELECTING NEW PEOPLE TO SERVE.
We have done the SHAW thing disatrious results, the Lewis team a living hell, so lets looks at the other candidates and yes if they all new they will all have to learn anew and work together. Please take care of this town for our children's sake and survival. DOlton has plent independent candidate running for all offices. PICK ONE OF THEM. NO REPEATS.

THE ONLY THING YOU CAN PROMISE AS FAR AS THE STUBBS TICKET IS CONCERNED IS...GARBAGE, A STEP IN THE "WRONG" DIRECTION, A RETURN TO BULL_HIT, & THIEVERY AS USUAL. THE PEOPLE WHO VOTE FOR THAT TICKET ARE OBVIOUSLY THE PEOPLE WHO DIDN'T LIVE HERE WHEN THAT ADMINISTRATION WAS HERE BEFORE!!!! "If you really want to see our village change for the better," act like there is NO Stubbs, Sims, Green, Lowe, or Lockhart on the ticket...THAT'S HOW YOU CAN HELP DOLTON!!!

2/2/2014 no water on in home with three children despite having emailed the new Dolton Administration. It takes about twenty minutes to turn water on or off. It has been two months and my water in my home is still not on. There is complete resistance. Called the water department to say that the water was still not on and it is now two months later when it should have been, five minutes later a police officer arrived at my home to discuss my water bill he says. In retaliation, the water still is not on. The intimidation is at bay.

Pay your bill and you can have water...it's that simple.
