Yes, Go Andy.
About time someone stands up to Braidwood b.s. politics. Braidwood has been getting away with there own ways of doing politics and the county and state have been turning there heads, I hope this leads to more complications to the so called Mayors plan of Braidwood destruction! I commend you!Good Luck!

First of all thank you "Run Far Away" and "senior news" for your support. I moved into Braidwood 7 years ago and my heart has been for Braidwood sinc then. I donated my time as City Administrator for 3 1/2 years and helped the two previous administrations lower the $2,000,000 debt we had. After talking to several attorneys (friends of mine) we believe what the mayor and city attorney are doing with the Finance Commissioner position is illegal. Bill vacated his position and they appointed another person for his posotion. Then they said Bill as sworn in as "Mayor" now they're saying he wasn't. But yet BOTH positions have been voting for the last 1 1/2 years. State Law states you can only appoint someone for 2 years. Hopefully the court will rule in Braidwood's favor and allow BOTH positions to be up for re-electio. So the LAWSUIT is about giving the residents of Braidwood a right to choose and not about any monetary gain. Thank you, Andy

The debt under Saltzman grew to over $1.5 million deficit spending. No matter if you liked Sue Grygiel or not it was her administration that reduced spending to try and reduce the debt, not you, you back doored her every chance you got. Your the reason Main Street has nothing on it. Those buildings should have been left until there was actually someone who wanted to build, but you and yes it was YOU no one else who told the owner they had to close and move.
