To the fine residents of Calumet City: We are now $51,760,428 in debt, and Mayor Michelle Markiewicz Qualkinbush makes $138,000 a year -- a reckless and unbridled amount by any city standards.
Calumet City has poor city services. We need better leadership and better accountability of tax dollars.
Crime is running rampant in Calumet City. We have empty lots, empty houses and empty-headed elected officials. We need elected officials who no longer need to fleece the residents.
"Proven leadership"? The current administration is not acceptable. No more "me, myself and I" politics in Calumet City.
Calumet City needs a new mayor and city administration -- people we can trust. I say vote for Pam Cap for mayor.
I will vote for Cap, who has put her life on the line for the past 22 years as a Calumet City police officer. She has a master's degree and is a lifelong resident of Calumet City. She cares about the taxpayers of Calumet City.
Let's all vote for accountability in government. Cap is the person we need to change the culture of "politics as usual" in Calumet City.
Vote for Cap, and change will come.
Cap has no clue

Not totally happy with the current regime, but Cap has zero experience running a city government, so she needs to stay on the police force and let the mayor alone. My addy might say Cadiz KY but I have family in Cal City and they all are voting for Qualkinbush for re-election. Enuf said.

A good Mayoral candidate is going to run on a record of acheivment or at least tell people what they are going to do if they have no acheivments. Pam Cap is a actually not even a candidate anymore for obvious reasons that she is unqualified. Now she feels compelled to have all the gangbangers and idots she has running with her group pestering people with lies and harassment of good citizens. Pam has no professional acheivments nor can she hanger her hat on ideas that are good for the city. Cap and her people have a campaign philosophy of just character assination of the incumbents with little facts total untruths and no insightful dialogue to run a reasonable adult and respectful campaign. This person has no business in office. I used to respect her now I don't even respect her as a police officer or otherwise.

Pam Cap is back on the BALLOT for the FEB. 24th Primary Election as a candidate for the Mayor of the City of Calumet City ( making sure everything is technically correct here); Kellie Nixon will be on the BALLOT as well as a candidate for the Office of City Clerk for the City of Calumet City.
This is AMERICA people! We have the right to have a 'CHOICE'.....that choice should not be decided by anyone who is all ready seated as an elected official. That whole thing sounds a bit 'unethical'. I don't know the laws, but, if this is one, we as voters, need to look into how to change it. An 'Electoral Board' needs to be totally unbiased. In fairness to all citizens.
So, as of now, WE DO HAVE A CHOICE!
PEOPLE WAKE UP!!!!!!!!!!
Tomorrow is a City Council meeting. Come join the fun! See our Mayor and her court LIVE! The show is an absolute 'HOOT'! Come pick up an agenda. See how many bills are passed for payments and who those payments are going to. It's time for an 'awakening' in this city.
IT'S TIME FOR A CHANGE..........tired of the same old song and dance, still stinks of GENOVA!

People have a choice now in Calumet City !!!!!!!!!
People now can speak for themselves!!!!!!!!!!
The mayor and her cronies try to tell us what to do and how to think.Feb 24th is the time ,we as voters can begin to speak up for ourselves.Pam listens to the people of Calumet City ,while Michelle decides what she thinks is best for Calumet City.Just look at the casino license,she decided what she thought was best for Calumet City,without consulting any residents,if she did she would have found out they didn't want it.She spent over 2 million dollars chasing a license the residents didn't want. We can no longer afford this dictator,we as residents need someone that listens to us.That person is Pam Cap.

What do you call acheivement? You mean doing what you want and not listening to your residents? Michelle was a city clerk when she became mayor,where was her experience? We do not harass residents,we are not thugs,we are working class people doing what needs to be done to improve our city.Michelle uses city money and the city attorney to keep opponents off the ballots. Who is the real thug? The people that support Michelle were put in their positions of authority by her ,not based on their qualifications,that's why they support her.
