Will mayor Vargas or PSO Rita address the public and advise us of the ongoing rash of residential burglaries we have had the past few weeks? Do our police have any suspects in custody or any leads?

City Attorney Shawnte Raines, sat there speechless. She did not give an opinion, or show any sign or desire to do what is right, and go out for bid! She is obviously not, concerned about the taxpayers who pay her salary, but looking out for the politicians who gave her a job. Where is Blue Island ETHICS ORDINANCE?
What is, "the primary reason SMARTFUSION WAS SELECTED"?
Who "pushed and coaxed the MOTION and AGREEMENT along" and "WHO wanted it PASSED"?
Who was "URGING" to GET the "NO BID DEAL DONE"?

Sure they are. You are just not part of it. I don't think your anti-Vargas campaign is working on topics either.

What were City Attorney Raines recommendations on this "NO BID CONTRACT"?
How was the MAYOR ADVISED? How was the COUNCIL ADVISED prior to the VOTE?
How were BLUE ISLAND, and the TAXPAYERS PROTECTED?

Patronage, Special Interest, or Self Interest No Bid Contract?

I am sure you will get all the information you need on this site. Just keep asking and they will respond. I am sure of it. When they said nothing to you at the council meeting what they really meant was we will continue this discussion on topix. Try pissing up a rope.

You have put so much pressure on these guys that I'm sure they will resign at the next meeting. The boycott is what really got them. Keep the pressure on them. Turn up the heat! You got them right where you want them. You are even more pathetic online.

How many people and who will take the fall for the JAWA Insider Patronage, Special Interest, No Bid, Appointment Riddled Deal?
Will the money have to be Returned to the communities?
Will any persons be charged?
Will any of those people serve jail time?

Rita says he will be asking to legislative audit commission to investigate how Jones' former company wound up getting the lottery business, and whether any ethics rules were broken.

"That's what I'm looking at. Why would someone push so hard to have a certain company do business," Rita said.

Is Rita distancing himself from Vargas?

This type of rhetoric proves that you are intimidated by Topix posters. Keep trying to convince yourself that we can't think independently.

Clearly you have no brain. The people in this town thought that Vargas was a free thinker. Had they known that he was on team Rita, he would never have been elected. We trusted... He betrayed. He lied to us and he won. He and his team have gained nothing but mistrust from Blue Islanders. Our movement is flourishing on Topix and in the Community. Now who's delusional?
