Better you have to look at him doing nothing in the office than the general public having to look at him driving around doing less than nothing. He visits Calumet Township more than he works. Not to mention his free meals at T&G Gyros. The health dept. needs to visit Blue Island.I would not eat there if it was free!

If you can't do good at least "Do No Harm".
Better to keep him in the office where he can do the least amount of harm.

Vargas has been USELESS for his entire BI political career. 7th ward has been an orphan ward for his entire term, 20 plus years. Hasn't he set a new record for being useless yet? He collected a slate of additional uselessness in terms of serving the taxpayers of BI. They are, however, very useful to the Ritas. Vargas most of all because he is the main front for ALL of this wiggling. He/they are not even bright enough to recognize that they are all being used or played and will be out as soon as the Ritas get the rest of their friends and family lined up for their jobs. It would be funny that people are so stupid, if it weren't so sad for the hard working taxpayers of BI. It's disgusting.
It's sad that the voters of Blue Island believed all the empty campaign promises too. Blue Island had fair warning of what would happen if they only paid attentiom to the elections for Calumet Township. Supposedly Martino (RIP) didn't fill an available spot with someone Rita wanted and didn't do things the way he wanted, the divorce proceedings began. The Martino/Rita patriarchs were good friends and loyal party members. Yet Bob made a new branch of Democrats to run against the Township officials. The evidence was all there for the voters of Blue Island to use during the last election. Unfortunately there were no other choices for many of the aldermanic races because it's expensive (cost of having your signatures challenged etc.) to run against the money Bob brings with the Democratic party. I believe possible candidates who would be a benefit to the city realize this and don't bother. Those who do align themselves thinking they can make a differece quickly realize they don't have a voice. The deterioration of politics and leadership in Illinois is finally reaching/encompassing every town/city/school& park district. I hope the Park District Commissioners know that their independence will be swallowed up soon too. There's alot of money that's at stake that's currently not controlled by City Hall. These are just my opinions from observations and info shared with me over the 40 plus years livng in Blue Island

Candice should ask Where the Additionals FUNDS went from the "Fund Raiser".
The Old General Fund? Or a Fund for Fire Equipment?

Now the truth is while the building commish and health inspector headed over to D mars for a routine inspection Mario informed Chris at T & G that the inspector would be there soon after D mars. T & G had about 45 minutes to spruce the place up before they got there. T & G got a health score of 90 out of 100. now T & G in dept to him.... hence free meals. pull the health report( prior to Vargas ) NO BULLSHIT ITS TRUE. this was around the same time as when Pierres bakery was closed for violatoins...

Take home vehicles cost money, gas, and depreciation. If this is a new policy it will benefit everyone.

Are you that naive? Look at the salaries! Gomez gets an increase. Berry an increase. John Rita 96,000.00 to do what the previous police and other department heads were doing. No savings here! Don't defend these idiots. Enlighten yourself man! Get on the honest man bandwagon.

Has there been any follow up regarding the whereabouts of the surplus from the "fund raiser" for the fire department?
