Mr. Pitmen who lives in Worth Township, has a job with Bob Rita in Calumet Township. So you see friends, his vote has already been bought. Bought very very cheap. I was told he even abstained on his first vote, when they voted on the payroll. He worked for Rita candidates in this last election. A political hack he is.
Living, breathing, rubber stamper.

On the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington, the country can take pride in progress made toward the guarantee of equal rights for all. Yet it is disheartening to watch the continuing battles over the right to vote, a core goal of the civil rights movement and the foundation of any functioning democracy.

At last night Blue Island city council meeting , the residents were disenfranchised by the Rita machine.

. Would love to but the mayor likes to chastise women in public at council meetings if they're having a beer in public.

Nothing has Changed, the council remains untruthful, they are Not working in the best interest of the people, they are promoting companies that will cost more for services, and the council thinks people are fools. More contracts for connected friends selling junk, things that will cost More, dishonest service, and a law firm that HAS to GO!

The new alderman abstained from the vote on payroll and accounts payable. After that he did vote.

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
