One year later and we are being led by a City Administration that has absolutely no skills in the revitalization of our town. No substantial new businesses. No experienced Department Leaders. No Police Chief. No improvement in city services. No respect from our Mayor. To your credit; patronage hirings and newspaper and television stories that have made us look like the dying city that we are. Thank you mayor. Thank you pro-tem. Thank you J. R. Thank you for nothing!

The south side of Chicago had its glory days. That was back in the 70's.

Promises that they couldn't keep is a prime example of their ineptness. Uneccesary, trite public events is their only claim to fame.

Nice try 101. We know how you love to brag about having your job. And how you love to throw those that have lost their jobs, because of your lies, under the bus

Agreed. Don't forget the #1 toadie for Peloquin Kenny Stachulak. That guy had his lips on Peloquins ass so tight you'd think it was Super Glued on.

You Peloquineers are sick. The town was ruined by DON PELOQUIN! I repeat DON PELOQUIN who did not live in town the last 10 years of his failed administration.

Come on smart Alec. Tell us all how things have improved here under the direction of the "no bid contract administration." You can't! Now you scaredy cats will try to discredit any one individual that wants to run for Mayor. Problem for you is, we all collectively don't want you in office.

I am a resident of over 20 years ... Let's not forget who the Mayor Pro-tem was for over those years ... Hmmmm... Think now you can do it .... DOMINGO VARGAS.....!!! And hmmmmm who was on the city council .... Another toughie .... The RITA's!!! And, with exception of Ray Eads at the time everyone else were a bunch of bobble heads ... Like those in place today.

The demise of our community has been in the works for many years ..did Bob Rita help Peloquin at all ... NO..... And , now like the demise of our country led by the Dems ... So goes our fair community. And who is ultimately accountable ... The VOTERS ... Although voters were bussed in all over our community in this last election. Sad .... But there is a bright spot .... Other communities are thriving while good people lost their jobs ... Businesses moved out ... We have no vision ... No commitment by those in power beyond their self interests ... As ducted by the Dems. Sad but true.

Hey now, Bob Rita brought Roseland back to life. He just needs time. Sarcasm intended!
Self Service

Blue Island elected officials have traditionally been in the business of self service for 30 plus years. The Peloquin Coalition Party and Ritas have enjoyed their 30 plus year behind the scenes behind closed doors relationship as evidenced by the Peloquin Bilatto and Vargas Rita alliances.
The "culture of cover-up" "promises made by Vargas, Rita, and the BIIPS" must be examined. There needs to be criminal accountability for much of what has occurred or failed to happen; up through the chain of command.

It is so easy to prove that their friends, family and Cook County contacts have been given priority for jobs. This will ultimately be their fail.
