We already need a new police chief. The current "idiot" is rude and ignorant. Its funny how easily public "servants" forget who pays there bills. I for one am terribly disappointed with how that man craps all over people.

Yeah it would be so much better to have the last two losers back, right?? They aren't only rude and ignorant, they actually get a kick out being jerks. Yeah bring back the self serving jerk who only care about what's in it for them. If you believe that I really want them back in our PD, I have 16' of land in the country club that I'll sell ya for $10.

You must really enjoy working with Shavone on village business. Sharon will never get the people behind her until she rises above the personal attacks and acts as her own person.

Respect is earned by following the rules. When she simply hires her own friends with no bid contracts and off-the-cuff appointments it shows she has no concern for the rule of law not to mention public perception. Even if those same individuals would still be appointed. Circumventing the rules will not endear her to the people.

hahaha you're kidding right? Every politician has people making personal attacks against them from all sides. It doesn't mean they condone it. She can no more control what someone puts on the internet about or in defense of her than you can.

Btw, to the OP, really....

I asked someone that paid a tad more attention to that topic than I did, and they said they saw some threats in it so maybe that's why it is gone. I think I tuned it out pretty quickly so I don't remember the topic much. Maybe topix got enough complaints? I dunno.

They are always hiring lateral police officers that must tell you something is stinky over there in the PD. You can't keep officers is a problem. Midlo will be the next Robbins in 5 yrs.

I don't now and never want to work with Vince on any business. Please tell us what rules she has circumvented. And then maybe you can explain Vince's ties to the collection company that works for the village. Or perhaps why he voted in adding 16' to his own back yard. The past administration was so into whatever was bet for ONLY them that they neglected the citizens of our town. It's a new regime now and thankfully they want what's best for the village.

So what has the "new regime" done? I am not talking about the village employees she ran off or fired. What has she actually done for the village? I haven't seen anything yet. My sense is she is in over her head and seems to be going in circles until someone tells her what she should be doing

My understanding is she is trying to figure out the mess that Terry Stephens left her. One has to realize that Terry did all he could to work the people up in a frenzy so he could get elected, raise taxes where he seen fit,spend the money on his little hidden projects and when the Voters who once backed him figured out they were being taken advantage of and lied to voted him out. Now what happens is that Sharon has nothing to work with and the loyal Terry supporters will nag and bitch about what she's no doing instead of realizing what he left her with.

at least you admitted that she has been ineffective. So what little projects did Terry have that the self knighted "tax watchdogs" not know about? I am sorry but I am thinking Sharon is just a pig but wearing lipstick instead. Just my humble opinion

How was there an admission of her not doing anything? I refuse to get in a pissing contest with you since I can already tell that you're loyal to Terry and his merry band of liars.Two of which for some reason still sit on the board.Where's the Water Tower, the Business' Lang was supposed to bring in,the company that was going to turn our garbage into Electricity? Was the Water Main project ever finished? If I can't think of any more of his "promises" I'm sure someone who reads or posts will continue of wht he told us he would do.

You said she hasn't been able to do anything because seven months later she is still trying to figure things out. I am not loyal to Terry just not going to give Sharon a free pass after her promises of new business etc. perhaps it is not as easy as it seems. There are other people on the board like Karen Jerry and Don who never seem to get any flak for the ills of the village. They talk a good ball game but really do not accomplish much besides useless bike path signs. I agree Vince has to go. Alan and Gary are good guys but take the blinders off every once in a while and take a look around

One of his "little projects" was a very shady land deal between himself and Murawski that they made to give Tom and Vinnie a little extra back yard. As soon as Rybak took office neighbors started complaining about the deal those two idiots made and it was discovered that the deal wasn't been brought to the board but made behind closed doors. The street that Vinnie and Tom tried to make their own backyard was never even vacated! Undoing all of their little "deals" has taken considerable time. Even now they haven't let it go and have continued to hound her about it. She has revamped the insurance and been dealing with contract negotiations with both police and fire. She is actively working on economic development and talking to several businesses about coming to town. There is plenty going on that we the residents don't always see. Does that help you any?

Revamping the insurance? If by revamping you mean trying to take away legit insurance and replacing it with some bull shit that is barely considered insurance then you are absolutely right. The insurance they were trying to offer was so bad it was a direct violation of the police and fire union contracts, to which several board members stated they didn't even know the police and fire departments had unions... really?? Once they realized the ramifications of implementing said "revamped insurance" the whole idea was dropped until next year. But really, A+ for trying to screw over the employees who protect and serve Midlothian!

Your story is wrong honey. No board members said they weren't aware that there were unions involved and they are offering very comparable insurance so get used to the fact that changes are in effect and move on. It's happening to everyone. Thank obamacare and quit trying to blame the local officials. They are doing the best possible for all involved.
