Time for a change

Harvey, IL

The time for change in Crestwood is now. Why would anyone in their right mind elect the same people who sat idly by when the village knowingly mixed water from a tainted well? Why? And why has not one trustee come forward and say what was done was WRONG? Why? What are they afraid of?

Think of this. Do you believe the Illinois Attorney General and the federal government conducted a raid on the village with little or no evidence? No they would not. What happens if the sheep in Crestwood re-elect the same people back into office and they are indicted down the line?

Crestwood officials will come out before the next mayoral election and give some type of rebate back to the residents. Remember that is what started the mess Crestwood is in now. Neglect everything in town in order to give a rebate back.

Don't fall for the BS. Let’s start the healing process now and start moving forward. Elect Flynn and Toscas.

I think they will start talking rebate in the April adviser and to the seniors at the Biela over a free lunch

Looks like me and my boy got our work cut out for us on this poll. There is no way a Gassmere will lose to a Toscas or a girl. No way. We will stay up all night voting to make it look like all kinds of residents have voted. Now if I could just find my boys name. Deloris get in here. You need to vote for the boy.

Ok, now watch this. The poll right now will probably be the results on april 5th. But watch in a couple of days when the people at the village hall see this they will force all the employees to get on here and vote for the other guys. They did that for all the polls on this forum.

They most certainly did not. It was me and my boy all on our own. Do not give any credit to anyone else but us Gasses, that is the nickname we call each other.

Hey Frank according to the poll looks like you will need to find a hobby to fill your spare time.
How about something in the water sports area.

First of all, I give credit where credit is due...Chester Stranczek did a fantastic job for the citizens of Crestwood for 40 years. However, it is shame that his name will be forever infamously linked to the Crestwood Water Scandal. While I think his intentions were good, his judgment was bad when mixing in the well water with the lake water. Did he know about it? Chester knew EVERYTHING that was going on in this town at any given time since 1968. I know this because I lived here since 1960.
Well...what's done is done. Now we have to focus back on what made Crestwood a great place to live. To do this we need not only competent, but intelligent people who have excellent foresight and leadership skills. That's why I believe, hands down, that Mr. John Toscas should be elected Trustee. We need to wipe the slate clean of the past and start working on rebuilding our reputation as a model community. We were once that...but now we are being laughed at by other nearby communities. I was once proud to say I live in Crestwood...now I am not. I want that opportunity again to say I am proud to live in Crestwood and I think Mr. Toscas can get us heading in that direction. Thank you for taking the time to read this my friends.
Good point

Lets start with public service. How about a real full time police and fire department.How can anyone work only part time ? you have to be there everyday to get a feel of the town , know who the drug dealers are etc.etc. I think its time for crestwood to step up and pay for a real police and fire dept.

By now everyone has received the letter from the VIP (Very Incompetent Party)attesting to their "attributes". Bobby S. is even taking credit for the millions of dollars given back in rebates. He does state, "THIS ADMINISTRATION gave over 49 million dollars in tax rebates.....BOBBY, YOU DIDN'T DO THIS...YOUR FATHER DID! SHAME on YOU for taking all of this credit your father accomplished over 40 years!!!
Also...exactly what grocery chain is taking over the vacant store left by Dominicks? State what store, Bobby! This so called "mystery store" has been talked about for over a year now!!! This is nothing but a smoke screen people...no grocery store is moving into that space! And...there are no "several other retailers" who want the old K-Mart space! Name the names, Bobby! Nobody believes the VIP anymore because thay do nothing but LIE, LIE, LIE...there is no accountability, no transparency, and nobody is allowed to question the people supposedly "running" this town. I own a small business in Crestwood as well as live here. MY TAXES KEEP GOING UP AND UP AND UP! How about yours people? My attorney constantly has to appeal every year to get my business and residential taxes decreased, if even for a couple of hundred dollars. Finally...people, please believe that the REBATE PROGRAM IS NEVER COMING BACK!!! In fact, let's take whatever may be left over in the till, if any, and hire a FULL-TIME police and fire dept!!! We have good people in these departments making about ten bucks an hour!!! Can you live on ten bucks an hour? I sure as hell couldn't!!! It's time to get 'Bobby and his Low IQ BOYS' out of here and get some people in there who know what the hell they are doing!!!
