Defenders of the status quo may argue that constituent services would suffer, but many residents know city hall and the township has done nothing to get either of the two bridges open, repair all of the broken side wlaks or streets in Blue Island and there are limited services currently.

How many of elected officials who’ve been nailed for corruption worried about their "constituents" when they were lining their own pockets?

That’s especially poignant after Wednesday’s sentencing of No. 35, former Ald. Sandi Jackson, who colluded with her ex-congressman husband to illegally divert $750,000 in campaign cash to lifestyle embellishments, not ward improvements.

Smaller more efficient less government might actually empower elected officials to think more globally about the daunting financial challenges confronting the Blue Island and Illinois, including when bonds should be issued, TIFs, the land bank, JAWA, and the pension crisis.

These concerns require elected officials to do their homework and pay attention to real issues.

At the end of the day, it’s time to get down to business and cut out all of the fat that threatens our financial well-being.

Blue Island elected officials need to think about the daunting financial challenges confronting the Blue Island and Illinois, including when bonds should be issued, TIFs, the land bank, JAWA, and the pension crisis.
As other municipalities go bankrupt we know there is "No Endless Supply of Money."

Former Calumet City Mayor Jerry Genova, 38 a one-time rising political star who was convicted summer 2001 of widespread corruption, on Wednesday was sentenced to 5 years in prison by a federal judge who lamented, "You could have been great, but it just didn't happen."

Under state law, the conviction automatically knocked Genova from office.

The state commission that disciplines lawyers said they would seek to indefinitely suspend Genova from practicing law in a few days if he didn't voluntarily give up his license. Genova was disbarred as a lawyer in 2003 now 50 he has substantial debt.

Dip in egg and corn meal before frying and serve with ketchup, cocktail or hot sauce.
