From the beginning you have been calling Noak a cheat and a bully. You said you were going to stand up to him at a meeting and then you backed out. You said you have all this proof, but yet more than a month later you have shown nothing. Your messages have had no merit. I would hate to be you. To sit there all day and read this forum just so you can jump in with a criticism about Noak. How depressing. OK, we get it. You donít like Noak. But what is Mongo going to do different? Is he going to give you a job? Be your pal? Come over for diner? Let me give you a little insight. He wonít do any of this for you. Mongo is only running for this office because he did not get what he wanted for his restaurant. That is it. Thatís all. Nothing else. He has no history here in Romeoville. He has only lived here since last April. He has never held a political position in his life. Can you imagine putting someone in the Mayor position that has no experience at all? Running a village is not easy and you donít just jump into the sit and go. Can you imagine what this will cost this village because we have an inexperience mayor that does not know the system? Listen, he doesnít care about you or me or anyone but himself. I have talk to this guy and I love him as a Bear. But, he will only be your buddy if you vote for him, eat and drink at his restaurant and I would too. Puts money in my pocket. Outside of that. He only cares about himself.

I think you might be giving Noak credit for things that Steve Gulden and the Village employees have worked hard for. I don't know that an inexperienced Mayor is such a bad thing. That isn't to say Mongo is good for the village but I don't know that a career politician is either.

I wish we had another choice, to be honest with you.

Staff alone could not accomplish everything that has been done. You continue to try and dismiss the officials including the Mayor and Board that together have been successful. It is the current mix of both that makes everything work. And the mayor is no more a career politician than Steve Gulden the rest of the staff. He has just as much government experience or more in many cases. Under you definition they would all be career politicians. That would make Micheal a career opportunist and smut salesman.

How do you come to that conclusion from my comments?

Steve and the other village employees are "employees" not politicians. They don't shake people down for money and promise the world in return.

My point was I trust Steve and the village employees to run the village a million times more than I trust John to do anything in our best interest. I think he tries to hang his hat on things that those employees could accomplish without him.

I don't disagree with your assessment of McMichael though. I would consider him a career opportunist.

I just think you have 2 equally flawed candidates running and I wish that we had a legitimate option.

You use that shake down term a little too easily. Unless you have proof of something I'd be careful what you say. And since there has never been anything to indicate such I guess you should stop. Unless you have some kind of proof which everyone on here that attacks noak seems to never have.

You also sound like an employee that would like to take all the credit for themselves. Interesting.
