He is bringing professionalism to the City of Chicago Heights and those old clowns of the past have not accepted the change. "YOUR DAYS ARE OVER AND GONE".

No, I dont! Name any businesses that are even trying to come to this city! Drive down most streets and you will see they are broken up! The water main breaks have created several sink holes in several spots of roads that havent been fixed in months. He got humilited in court against that Indiana mayor over the price of water! Now Lets look at the Down town and East sides of town, it looks like Detroit! The North end is having more board ups due to vacancies! Noone wants to move here, as evident by our shrinking population! check out the census!Then Lets look at the west side! Looks like Compton in Beacon Hill! The cops and Firemen are leaving in droves. Where is Daves so called "influence" going or helping this city in improving the city? Name any succeses he has delivered and prove it! What ever happened to the new pumping station that we Were supposed to get from the 2009 "stimulis"? They Were supposed to paint the water tower, Too! Neither job done! Furthermore, the Mayor from Indiana pointed out the raise in the price of water was due to the Fact that "Dave" and the city has done absolutely nothing to stop the waste due to so many of the leaks underground! He refuses Still to address this like any good Mayor would! This falls on him! So, once again, what are his succeses? Name them! He should take care of this city before he worries about building any coalition in the South side! He aint measuring up! There is more to being Mayor than handing out patronage jobs and keeping friends and "FAMILY" out of jail! I just put my house up for sale. What a hit i will have to take, but well worth it! Ill go to a city that work!

Why should anyone have to prove themselves to you, an anonymous poster on Topix. David proves himself every damn day, and the politics of hatred were defeated in 2011. He will be mayor for as long as he wants the job.

Oh, Still Waiting for the list of Daves accomplishments! I see you couldnt provide one either. Since you seem to know everything, do you know if Mike Murphy got released yet? Make yourself useful. Go find out and let us know......How did Gonzos daughters case go in court? You know, the one where She kicked a Homewood cop? Whats wrong, Digg Digums? Nothing to say about that?

Oh, are you speaking of the newest pumping station along saratoga farm, the folks in college point are enjoying their new streets and curbs, the hill area are getting new alleys, northside will receive new roads also. Correcting problems past administration slept on i.e. collapse of sewer systems etc. Dead trees removed and still going. Not enough room and time to continue. I have a grill to tend and walk around my front yard which had its branches picked up Friday after one call. Oh and when I tried to have my alderman (4th Ward) to get work done, I waited and waited. So I just call City Hall and it was done before the week was up.

Are You Serious,
You lost credits for bringing up issues that have zero effect on the man's mayoral role. What has he done to deserve my support? Attend a finance meeting or city council meeting and find out. Slandering comments followed by insults indicate your ignorance on what is REALLY moving in this city.

If you feel so hefty about it all, ask to meet with him in person and voice your concerns. Otherwise, "shhhhhhh"

Mayor Gonzalez and his administration are completely committed to the success of this great city! They have done a wonderful job cutting trees down that have been in a list for YEARS AND YEARS! Also, the development if NEW HOMES on the east side is A HUGE STEP IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION for our city.I really believe that for the first time in a very long time, we have an administration that truly cares and loves our city!

Most of them new Homes are vacant and get burglarized on a regular basis and they are pretty much giving them away. What else you got? Tree removal? Wow! Thats the most important thing you can think of? Where are the new businesses? Why are the roads all broken up? City hall and the police station are run down! Gonzales has done nothing and will keep doing nothing as long as he is in office! The hill looks like a border town(South of the border). Its depressing! Its saturated with gang bangers! The schools are terrible! What succeses story is there? Make a list! PROVE it!

Why u wasting your time talking to these fools? its obvious they are a bunch of uneducated, middle aged fatties who couldnt hold down a job so they suck off of a guy like Gonzales for a city or township job!Look around, they are everywhere! Grown men doing the jobs that teenagers should be doing for summer jobs!

Ha Ha, he called me a Idiot. So Are You Serious, you must be sitting on the bar stool at Dino's talking about the old days huh, and what it use to be like. Well, I may be sitting across from you, Ha Ha. Stop by Skyline one day and look for the guy driving the Black Town Car and eating Corn Beef Hash with Wheat Toast, It's me. I voted for Faso, but have to say Gonzalez is doing a pretty good job with what he has to work with. Hell, I call my Alderman Deabel and can never get anything done. But let me call City Hall and work is done within a week. Guess Deabel is too busy riding his bike around instead of representing our ward.

I don't see much improvements to the city being made. Yeah some dead trees are being cut down. Big fat hairy deal.

That old folks home they built is a joke, from what I have heard they have almost no residents and nobody wanting to move in. So that was a huge waste.

They still can't find a retailer willing to go into the old Ace Hardware strip mall at Dixie and Joe Orr, and it continues to decay.

They built a new park next to the library that is overrun with the most ill-behaved teenagers imaginable.

Speaking of the library...the mayor's grotesque displays of political grandstanding concerning that organization were a disgusting abuse of power...and I am convinced they are not over...

The park district got a police force....why? Tell me again why?

Route 30 has more vacant buildings then active businesses. I'd never stop at a gas station there since people are routinely robbed or murdered at these places. surprised they stay in business...

No point in even talking about the east end or beacon hill. Those areas are way too far gone for rehabilitation....
