I'll give you a few. When he was running for mayor he said he never knew anything about this water scandal. He said he didn't know the town was drinking the well water, he didn't know the water was bad. He said there wasn't going to be any lawsuits and that both convicted felons were going to be let go. He "vote yes to the rebate" he was going to get the rebates back because we have a huge surplus of money.
Then after he won all his stories changed, he said "yeah I knew about the well, we all knew. I knew the well shouldn't be used, but I didn't know it was bad water". The lawsuits are still in place, both felons were convicted. And there's no way for a rebate, which we all knew anyway. Now he's saying he might not be able to give the rebate back till his 2nd term. He says we have to pay off all the lawsuits first.
Well no kidding Lou. We all knew you were lying. Your Scum!!
Thanks for your reply. I am trying to get an attorney to take my lawsuit. I was told there is no way to prove the following. The water caused any cancer. Both the EPA and IEPA have issued reports stating that. There is no connection and no way to prove the water caused any cancer. I was also told it came out at trial there was no proof the state ever told Crestwood not to use the well.The state was unable to provide any documents and that is why no one was charged with distributing the alleged contaminated water.That is why the courts threw out the class action suit and several other people have dropped their suits because now they would have to foot all of the legal filings ect because an attorney will not cover all costs unless it is a slam dunk case. Is this true? Can you point me in the right direction if you have proof. I sure could use the money.

There is a "causal link" between the chemicals and the elevated cancer rates in Crestwood! Please quit trying to disguise yourself! I am related to a cancer victim and there is a LINK! Stop already!

What is the relationship between the Village who owns Standard Bank stadium and the Thunderbolts. Big Joke

Why are our parks in such poor shape?

When will we have a health department with a licensed inspector?

When will we stop funneling millions toward the attorneys?

When will we get a real police department?

When will we get a real library.

When will Lou realize the damage being done by the poker machines?

The really sad part is that you jump on the band wagon, ignorant, Greedy individuals are just in this for the money. Probably after you finish shopping on your link card. The people that think they are owed something. Reality check, a lot of people...millions have died from cancer and they don't live in Crestwood. Explain that. Also explain how the rest of the village's people don't have cancer? You should probably get a job instead of trying to sue frivolously. Sadly Mom's & Dad's die! It does not mean its your personal cash cow. Take the professional's advice. There's nothing there to sue over. Maybe take your case to the Federal Government their the one's who are supposed to protect you. If there was any legitimate claims that could be won any lawyer would be all over it. It's what they do! Your clueless & not going to get "your" money.
