I have lived here all of my life. All I can say is thank god for all of you that moved into Ridge Cove, Ridgemont Square, Briargate, Martha's Ridge and the Sayre Building and that moved in from Cicero and Chicago, and Texas to run Chicago Ridge. We “lifers” have no business staying here in this town that was somehow left to you. Let’s get a new ordinance that will remove or kill off anyone that has been in this great town for over 20 years. Does this sound good for you?

Why is Brad Grove running for trustee again? Because he buys a lot of free drinks? The Trustee liquor license issue should have kept him from getting elected in the first place and is still a gray area however, because it has never been adjudicated. Yes the Village Board changed the code to let him on AFTER he was elected, but the original concept of preventing elected officials from holding a license or interest in a liquor sales business still makes sense given the potential for abuse.

I suppose the Governor personally saw to it that the Trustee section was removed. I wonder how much the dear governor was paid for that signature by some special interest group somewhere.

Someone needs to challenge this mistake.

As for the Siegel quote in the newspaper "I've had lots of support from people who want me to run again" You must be joking you have taken this village from being in the black to a very bright red. I know you will try to blame it on the economy , but what about the "old crew" of friends you hired to work in the village and then inflated their salaries. Oh and lets not forget the hefty increase you gave to the department heads. So how many other people really want you back....NONE.

Somebody already did time for the Lindburgh Kidnapping. You keep referring to people who complain about this mayor as "loose" and "loosers". All the "loose" women that the he hung around with at La Posada were his biggest fans. The word was that He actually tipped them very well. When you are running a business that is "losing" money and don't have any ideas of your own how to straighten things out, you should be man enough to admit it and pack it in.

Grove appeals to many folks in the Ridge - a scofflaw good ole boy with a huge liquor cabinet and a company SUV truck. Now that is livin. He loves his vacations in Vegas and his snorkling in the Carib. He is just like everybody else.

Reading the posts can be funny or confusing. Dan is running against Gene with no real platform. They have been friends for years. Dan backs Gene on all the major issues. Dan does not get attacked, Gene does. No proof just attacks. Gene wins. Next election, more attacks. Probably only a handful of people dedicated to smearing Gene on this site. Sad. It's not enough to win any election.
I also agree that LOSER would be proper so here goes. You idiots are a bunch of LOSERS but you are VERY LOOSE with the mud-slinging!
I also have an idea who Wayne's World is. Great company you keep. I bet Dan is saying thanks but NO THANKS to you.

You certainly have talked around all sides of this story. When you want all the credit you have to take all of the blame. So it goes with Gene Siegel. He loves the spotlight and can't handle criticism. If you want to keep saying that Dan Badon and Gene Siegel are friends then you need to explain why Dan Badon is running for mayor against Siegel. They obviously are rivals in this election and are not friends. Badon wants to be Mayor to provide leadership and energy. Go to his website. Badon has never been a go-along crony of Siegel's. Mudslinging? Siegel is the master and you obviously have learned something from him. You are going to downplay the importance of this election just like Gene wants you to. Big mistake. The gravy train is getting derailed.

Proof?It is public record that during Gene's tenure more than 50 apartment buildings where built.Nobody thought about what that would do to are schools and other village services all this administration could see where the healthy contributions of the builders of these buildings.(also a matter of public record).

Not sure what the Board will do now, but I think they should bring the issue to a head. Somebody else said it. It needs to be adjudicated, and if it is lost, every elected representative in the State house who voted to change the law to allow Trustees to own bars should be fired, or at least investigated by the same guy busting the Gov. Makes no sense for elected officials to own bars. Period. What kind of morons or perhaps crooks do we have in Springfield?

I read all of these posts too. I didn't see Gene's platform anywhere. He said he going to run his record in the paper. The last four years has been nothing special. He has lost control of his board, some of them openly mock him, two of them are not supporting him, and Dan is running against him obviously because he sees a problem. Siegel will keep saying Dan is "against me now after all I did". We need a change because Gene is washed up and his supporters know it. They like pushing him around in private.

Dan is lifeless and has riden on Gene's back for his whole political career. Why him? What change? This site was extremely Pratl heavy the last election and HE LOST TOO! Badon will lose by a thousand votes.

There may be an easy way to setle this. Make a $1,000 bet. Both sides place the money in an envelope and give it to someone both sides trust, a third party.
Instructions are: If Dan wins give both envelopes to the person that brought the Dan envelope in. If Gene wins give both envelopes to whoever brought the Gene envelope in. The third party gets a 5% "hold and sort" fee.
I know what side my money would go on! Any takers?
