When are the people of Caseyville going to stand up to the piece of crap Mayor they have? Right or Wrong, he is going to do what ever Romanik tells him to do. Doesn't matter if it is good for the village or not, it all boils down to what is good for Black and Romanik. The people of Caseyville need to petition the Mayor to resign his elected position. It is the only thing that save the Village from complete ruination and hopefully prevent Caseyville from becoming another Washington Park. Romanik and Black have plans for the village of Caseyville that will do nothing but put money in the pockets of Black and Romanik. God help Caseyville unless Caseyville can help itself.

I am praying that you are right. This man should get out of office and it would be best for everyone if he got out of town also. No one in this town will ever like him or respect him again let alone want to see his face anywhere.

From what I heard the little jerk did this again without consulting with the board members. I hope the board members stand strong and show Black and Romanik that the board members are in charge and will fight for the people of Caseyville. Black has to know that he is on his way out and the town is outraged at his actions, He has no one to blame but himself for selling his soul to Romanik. Slither away into a hole, Black, and never come out. You even give snakes a bad feeling and name.

Save Caseyville. Get Rid of Leonard Black. Keep Jose Alvarez. The choice is plain and simple. Sgt. Moore filing charges against Chief Alvarez is a big JOKE. When did he become a fan of Black's? At one point they didn't get along because Moore as acting chief did not want to hire Romanik's kid and Black told him that he had to. He must have been promised something out of this fishy deal. Beware people of Caseyville, I believe Black and Moore are selling the town to the Grim Reaper.

Why don't you ask Len Romanik about the grievance letter from the Teamsters Union. All Len Romanik had to do is apologize for calling the office girls bitches and for telling them they smell like black people, well his failure to apologize cost them a grievance from the union. Way to go Bob Black or whatever name your using !!

Leonard Black is one heck of a nice person and helps the people of Caseyville and it will be hard to find a better Mayor for Caseyville.
