So either over half of all the residents in Crestwood decided, for no apparent reason, to just like John last night or he bought the likes to fool and confuse the residents of Crestwood.
How pathetic is that?
Figuring out when Toscas lies is actually very easy - his lips move.
hey what do you exspect. Me and my mate Yerrible Toscas will do whatever it takes to win. Terrible Toscas gave me the green light to do whatever needs to be done to lock this election up. So I went on line hired a company to bring my likes up. I am a freaking genius.

Wow! It is so revealing that only thugs Presta. All people do on this site is tell lies, stories, half-truths and use profanity and insults. No meaningful discussion, just nonsense. Presta should be proud that he such classless people working for him. But then, this is the way politics in Crestwood has run for 40 years. Only idiots would believe the garbage on this site. It is made up of spineless, anonymous people who hide under made up names. Presta should be very proud of all of you!!

Gary Carr I think has just lost this election for John Toscas. His constant crying and finger pointing on his facebook page and his blog that no one at all follows is getting really annoying now. He is a loose cannon, never knowing what is going to come out of his loud mouth. But you can always be sure whatever he says is all lies. He never has any solutions to any of the problems Crestwood is facing. I was once a Toscas fan but having Carr on the ticket just lost my vote. Dino and Lou, show me what you got?!

You Presta backers are something else!! You must be getting nervous if you're keeping track of the likes on his facebook page, like really??!! I don't know Toscas very well, but what I do know is he has the best interest in mind when it comes to Crestwood and it's residents. He is honest and the most qualified candidate to run for Mayor. We need Toscas to get us out of the mess the current regime got us into!!

You want to talk about lies?!? What did Presta do for over 22 years? I'll tell you what he did, Presta and the old regime lied to the residents and business owners of this village telling us we had clean 100% pure Lake Michigan drinking water when in fact they were slowly poisoning us with carcinogenic well water!! Now that's pathetic!!

Toscas has my vote hands down!!

I am a long time resident. This election is getting ugly and to be honest with you it is coming from the Toscas camp. All we see is undocumented inuendos from Toscas running mate Carr. Anyone can say I heard or word. On the street.It is really starting to look like their camp only has the water issue to campaign on and nothing else.

If you truly want to get elected tell us what you are going to do for the vilage. How are you different. Besides the water issue what do you stand for. How are you going to improve the village. Stop with the I heard a smear campaign rhetoric. It is not working and in fact is hurting you. Even on this site most of the name calling is coming from Toscas supporterd who chastise other people for name calling and present no proof. You are name calling and then point the finger at someone else but there is no one else calling names.

You chastise Presta for pointing out the fact you hired a service to boost your "Likes" but complete avoid the fact your campaign bought the likes.

I still have not made up my mind but you are making it easier and asier for me to not vote for you.

Now go ahead and call me names. I and leaning towards voting for Pavoni or Presta. FYI just because someone disagrees with you does not automatically make them a Presta supporter. A lot of people do not like Toscas and Carr is crushing his hopes. That is what I am hearing from my neighbors.

You are alienating yourself by calling Presta/Pavoni spportes names. By the way it sure seems like a lot of business and a lot of residents are supportng Presta by the signs.

Stick to what you are going to do to improve village service,public safety,parks and attract business to Crestwood. Stop the scare tactics they are not working. And stop with the un named sources of he said she said 2nd hand hearsay infor. People are really tired of that. Time to start naming names of who is telling you all of the comments you are putting on Facebook or it just looks like you are making this crap up

Are you kidding me. Everyone post is about someone calling Toscas a douche bag or this and that. Or Gary Carr wreck. You clearly are not reading all the posts on topix it's about 80% to 20% someone saying bad thing about Toscas Carr. Go back and read this your crazy if you think Presta is getting beat up more then Toscas.

Every person on here that post something about Toscas has been a personal attack. They call him terrible names and make personal attacks because they Can't say anything bad about his record. His record is impeccable. The only thing that Toscas can be blamed for is telling the truth about Lou Presta. Toscas isn't making personal attacks against Lou. He's making us very aware of his plan, his plan is to cut spending, his plan is to get rid of the PR firm, and his plan is to get rid of the lawsuits. So how can anyone say he doesn't have a plan. You must not be listening or your just apart of the Presta camp. And people are not going to run away from Toscas because Carr is tell the truth about debt, lawsuits, ect. Anyone that does really say that were probably never going to vote for John anyway and so their trying to flip you.

I read the link you provided thoroughly, and I find it interesting that Lou, not once mentioned anything about the biggest problem our village faces which is the water scandal. Does he think if he ignores it, it will go away??? He sure didn't have any problems creating the mess.

Where are the ideas on here. Presta says he wants to ensure fiscal responsibility. That's a joke right? 41 million in debt a pension fund that's 26% funded. He calls the fiscal responsibility. Listen if you want Lou to shit in a bowl and call it chocolate ice cream go ahead you can make your own choices. But don't come on here calling that an idea. Why would anyone want to work for crestwood when they won't even get a pension.

That's why there needs to be a debate. So call your buddy Lou and have him debate Dino and Toscas. Then well see who has ideas.

I agree with you. We need to elect someone who is fresh and not beholden to anyone. We need Dino a life long resident and business owner. He is the best for the job. John and Lou have way too much baggage.

Dino is running an honest smear free campaign. He is not buying likes on Facebook and he is not smearing nor is he endorsing anyone who supports him to smear the other candidates. He has a clear and concise plan.

FYI have you ever heard Dino speak. He would knock the socks off of both the other candidates. He is warm and friendly and speaks directly from the heart as a LIFE LONG RESIDENT.

Dino's plan is to raise taxes and rates. Didn't you read his mailing? How is he going to handle the lawsuits? Ask him his plan about that when I asked him he said he's going to let them play out! I said are you kidding me. I'm not bashing him either. But once I talked to him about that and taxes, I said I can't vote for him.

He is going to do exactly what Toscas is going to do. Negotiate. That is all John has said. So Dino like Toscas will hire a lawyer to negotiate. Toscas would not by law be able to handle the lawsuits himself he would have to hire an attorney just like anyone else would have to if elected.

And yes it is due time to raise some fees. Business license's only a dollar, vehicle stickers only 5 dollars. It doesn’t pay for the women in the office to do the work.

Remember everyone hates Chester for the way he ran the town. You cannot have it both ways. Residents should also be charged for garbage pickup. If you want change this is how you do it. If you want to live in a cheap town with little or no services keep things the way they are. Toscas or Presta for that matter will have to start raising fees to raise much needed revenue.

Go back and look over the hundreds of threads on this blog. The common theme is the residents want change. They want better parks, better police and fire protection. You cannot have this unless revenues are raised. You also have the possibility of judgments hanging over our heads. We need change and we need to change. Remember everyone hates Chester for the way he ran the town. Now it is time to pay up and get the town to where it should be and the town’s people and elected officials should have made sure years ago we were going in the right direction. We didn’t the elected officials didn’t. Shame on us. It is that simple. If you want it to stay the same as it was "cheap" then we are going to be a cheap town and we cannot complain about the shabby services. It is your choice, make it wisely.

They don't want there mayor to hire his son as the police chief either. But you see that happen if he's elected and lets not pretend that wont happen either.
