I voted for Mary C. Avent. I couldn't find anything on her. She would have been new blood.

You missed the Water Dept "chief-ette" & her incompetent rude staff! When are they getting the boot? Village Clerk was smart to leave before the stuff hit the fan!

Ummm Melanie Fitness chief? Lol There's a lot of spring cleaning to do. Now if people actually do a good job for the village than I think they should stay...but loyalty to a man over the people. As Chief Keef says..that's that stuff I don't like.

Mary is a nice person. I think she would have made an excellent trustee. That would have given her experience on the board as well as giving us an idea of her leadership capacity. Same thing for Kiana. The jump from regular resident to mayor is a little steep and with few exceptions I don't recommend it. People need a reason to believe you can lead them before you run for mayor and they need some recent things to point to that you have done not what you will do. I hope her and Kiana come back around for future elections because they have some good insight to bring to the table.

These two mayoral candidates got the least votes of all of the candidates. You need to get out and meet the people and express your self to them if you want to be top dog. Kiana had the backing of Tr. Bendell so what happen to her with the low votes. Oops Tr. Bendell we are not happy with you either.
Billboards and signs don't vote for you contact with people works best most times. Elections are funny people vote for strange reasons it is puzzling how they do decide to vote. Example the new village Clerk got the most votes in village offices and we just saw pictures of her on the literature. Do people realize she is a causian woman? Are we going back to overseers like in the old days. We have a new level of leadership coming in a few weeks and thatshould be hilarious. l
So all of you future candidates be aware it really is a crap shoot running for public office.

Of course they got the least votes. They spent the least money. They had the least mailers, the least billboards, the least posters etc. You say billboard and signs don't vote for people but they sure get people to remember your name. Every campaign manager knows that people vote for different reasons. Why wouldn't they? We all have different priorities, different perceptions about board decisions, and different needs for our family.

Lastly, I am genuinely disappointed that people actually have the nerve to keep bringing up that the new clerk is white. Then we want to call white people prejudiced and racist. Newsflash!!! We had an all black board. Newsflash!!! Dolton is a mess right now. I voted for her and I knew she was white. If she does a great job, I'm voting for her again. These south suburbs are in great disrepair and all people can focus on is keeping the leadership black. You're right about a slave mindset but don't blame white people and call them overseers. It's ignorant black slaves with pocket filling black overseers and masters.

Burge must go! if there is to be a change in Dolton. Everybody knows it. Let's have some integrity. Burge has been charged with everything from theft of the police vault to assault, to official misconduct. And most recently domestic violence where the married chief took over his girlfriends house, and put her out and then arrested her daughters. He was Shaw's main henchman. The Shaw era isn't over until he's gone. He should be returned to civilian life. He has cursed out so many people in this city it's amazing! And all because He's the CHIEF! Do the right thing mayor. Take his badge so the citizens will be safe.
