John Arrington; Man of God, Minister, former Alderman, Harvard Law graduate, educator and pillar in the Harvey community. We would love for him to take interest and run for Mayor! He has a political, experience, charisma and the tenacity to lead the city of Harvey!

Handpicked, groupie? You don't know what you are writing about. There's nothing foolish about this man. So bigred what do you know about him obviously not much to be bashing him? He comes from good stock, which is hard to find in the political arena.

This isn't directed to you bigred. However, it seems like many people on these boards, have a problem with those who are educated. Fundamentals are essential and important. Just because Mayor Kellogg may not utilize his high level of education properly (or to his naysayers standards), doesn't mean that everyone else with those type of credential/accomplishments follow suit. I find it interesting you are doing the same exact thing as the other posters who were bashing Thompson. Shame...shame...shame! Hmmm, are you related to Thompson? Laugh!

He may be good,but you & I know that just because a man is a Minister does not mean he will not lie, steal, & decieve the residents. Some of these Preachers are nothing more than PIMPS. Why is'nt this man Alderman anymore, did he lose?

I believe he just didn't run anymore. He served under Graves Administration. I think he just got fed up with the corruption. Not to mention, he worked numerous hours in a seperate profiled position. I think for the school District #205? Not to mention, he was in school too.

To answer your question no he didn't lose! He gave up hei seat as Alderman of the 4th ward because of personal reasons that I will not say , but he will explain we he's ready! Trust and believe you have not seen the last of Alderman John Arrington!

Do you really think that brenda thompson doesnt know whats happening in harvey politices, please give me break. She worked with arrington when he was the alderman. There needs to be one person running so we can get kellogg out. Brenda Thompson has shown us her love, compassion, fight, and drive to fight for harvey and the citizens, businesses, children, senior citizens. she has the years of experience, knowledge and again i say she loves and cares about the citizens of harvey. So people come together and work with her to turn harvey around and defeat kellogg. We as black people can and should work together for the good. Give her the chance.

I just hope they don't flood the race with multiple people running ensuring another win for Kellogg. All those running should commit to a debate at Thornton HS. Citizens should be allowed to ask questions of them along with someone who oversees this process. Everything they have or have not done for the community needs to be addressed along with there plans for the future of Harvey and all it's Govt, funtions. Croonies of whoever should be exposed and weeded out by a showing of no interest from citizens.

I agree with you bill, I hope that happens. I would love to see that. But I really hope it comes down to Brenda Thompson and Kellogg. a one on one race. zucarrelli needs to put some judges in the polls who dont cheat for kellogg, David orrs office need to send out states attorneys, judges need to watch for all the strangers on buses kellogg brings in along with gangs voting illegally. STOP THE CHEATING KELLOGG, TRY AND WIN LEGALLY. LETS PRAY FOR THAT.

I think Reverend James Sims should run for mayor because he is a true man of God and will not lie to the residents.
I saw an article on him and a new black owned newspaper that touts him and maybe he is getting ready for a run for mayor.
I think the black Harvey newspaper is a set-up to push someone for mayor and maybe that someone is Rev. James Sims.
He at least has a good following and he would be a much better mayor than the one we have now!

I don't think rev. Sims is trying to be mayor. He is a supporter of Kellogg and has been a backer of Kellogg for a long time.
The newspaper is a good thing for this community but only if they tell the truth.
I know the editor has a reputation for calling it like it is and maybe he will do the same thing in Harvey. If he does like they say he is doing in University Park, then things are going to get really interesting in Harvey.
I hear the owner of hte Harvey City News also worked for the Black Express and Lu Palmer so maybe he is a older man and knows his way around.

When is the next mayoral election in Harvey

Whoever wins needs to demote or fire the current police administration period! The community starts with the police department and the officers. Its to bad Graves passed away. From any stand point he had crime and the community somewhat cleaned up. Under this fool now the hookers and dope dealers are all over the place. If the citizens of Harvey really want a respectable place to live they will vote in a person of integrity.

The question was, when is the next Harvey mayoral election.
Mayor Kellogg is a disappointment to us in the church community. We helped elect this man and to date he has done little or nothing to clean up and improve this community.
When we moved here nearly 45 years ago, this was one of the best towns in the south suburban community.
As a white person, I have done my best to stay here but the other day, after a visit to city hall, I was shocked to see how bad the actural situation has gotten.
I also saw a copy of a newspaper called the Harvey City News. Is it something new?
Is it published by the Harvey administration?
It had an article that told about a payoff in a recent crime but as there was only one copy left, they wouldn't let me have it. Is it my race or were they just keeping a copy, I don't know.
I plan to put my house up for sale as my wife and I are in our senior years and can't take the risks associated with the crime waves here. We know we will not get any return on our investment in our home as they have let the town fall to pieces.
I think the black residents, who control the votes because they compose over 85% of the registered votes, are to blame and must enjoy the crime and the lowered property values.
Also, the town's annual report is flawed and anyone can see that there is corruption in Harvey. Why won't the united states attorney looking into the crime and spending of federal money in Harvey.
