Looks like the truth is out. Mongo and his partner were trying to shake the village down for $500,000 in government hand outs to build a new 4000 sq ft patio. When they didn't get it Mongo started talking about running. Very very interesting!

I guess Gail didn't want to talk about this. Seems she doesn't really want the truth getting out.

He’s pissed because the village turned him down. Everyone knows that Mongo is only running because of this and publicity to “his” bar. He has no real intentions on staying here in Romeoville. He only signed a one year lease on his apartment. After April, he will be gone. Maybe off Cresthill or Plainfield to open a strip bar. Hey Cresthill and Plainfield, here is your heads up. Here comes Mongo… LOL

Which is how Stone City got their permits after donating $2000.00 to John Baby. Yep every thing is okay if you pay John first.

Hey! I like Stone City. It’s better than the sh*thole that was there before. Who are you? Do you even live here and know what the F is going on or just some dirty bag trying to stir up trouble? Go get a F’n job or a life or both! Loser.

Didn't Mongo's also get the same permits, a sales tax incentive and TIF money. Wow the truth s©cks for you! Mongo just wanted more and more. The village told him no and now he's running. Hmmmm wonder what his real motives are?

Mongo will move back to Florida on April 10th. Unless he forgets how to control his temper and snaps again. Just google Mr.mongo very interesting background and not talking about football. I can safely say NO I won't be voting for the mongo circus.

I just can't imagine how much more those two wanted to get for free from the government.

Does mongo really even live in R-ville anyway ? having an apartment does not make you a resident. Glad the city and Noak saw through his attempted scam on borrowing taxpayer money. Also according to HIM he has no financial stake in the bar that has his name on it. So he just sold off his the naming rights to the owner. He BSd the owner into thinking he is the real deal when what he is is a side show.
Move on Romeoville Your town deserves better.

OK, everyone asks for facts when it's something against John, so where are the facts here? How do you know he asked for $500k? And if we are outraged about that (and if it's true we should be) then why aren't we upset that Stone City got more than $200k from the village?

I really don't see why either one of them should have gotten anything. But why would you be upset about one and not the other?

The outrage is that Mongo is running for office partly because of it. Oh and the Village did help their restaurant out when they reopened with $75K in TIF and a sales tax incentive worth almost another $175K. Mongo didn't put a dime into the place. Now he's just mad that he didn't get more by showing off his rings. The fact is Mongo hasn't been apart of any successful venture since 1985!

I thought that is outlawed in Illinois? Maybe it's time to look at Mr. Noak's campaign contributors and how many have business with the village.
