Do the math, There is NO Savings.
I predicted this during the election that Mayor Rita will actually have more people on the pay roll. It only makes sense as to have more people dependent on him for votes. The next election he'll get his 7 other alderman in and then John will run for Mayor. The take over will resemble the one that happened at The Calumet Township.

These are the same ole people in power who did nothing for the people for 20 years or more.
They have changed their name to BIIP. They have no plan for anything. Just; filling their pockets.

Yes; it appears they are cursed..........

I heard Mayor Rita is the new leader. I was told that if you didn't join his ticket then he would find a candidate to run against you while making things expensive for you by challenging your signatures, court costs etc. Why do you think there were so many unopposed candidates? I think the plan is not complete since there will be 7 more alderman to line up and then 2 years after that a new Mayor. I think Vargas is just keeping the seat warm and relaying Mayor Rita's agenda.

None of the elected officials have done their homework or are on speaking terms with the issues before them that include Blue Island's financial challenges, pensions, bonds,TIFs, land bank, or JAWA. They are ALL following orders.

How many people were fired? How many positions were eliminated? What were these positions? Were new positions created to replace them?
I'm serious, I don't know.

. He is finding out the hard way that he hooked up with the wrong people. Hawley will never be Mayor now. Lost too much trust with the city residents. Not even his newsletter can save his political career now. Everyone in town is talking about him.

They have Not saved ONE THIN DIME!
In fact, Domingo is out spending the previous mayor two dollars to every one dollar Peloquin ever spent with benefit time pay outs alone!

Uh oh, you better watch out or Domingo (women hater) Vargas might not get the promised appointment for judge, from a certain friend in power, if people find out what a pig he really is.

It's sad because he has credentials and it's too bad he lost to Cheatle when he ran independently for the first ward. Although, the Rita campaign would make it hard for relection if he didn't align himself anyway.
