Lets keep reminding everyone of this as well.
Best advice to give everyone is ask questions and don't be bullied intimidated by any of the useless tactics this group will think they are doing.
ASK QUESTIONS about the FACTS!!!!
This majority hates QUESTIONS on FACTS!!!
Facts are not in their vocabulary. They like LIES better and INTIMIDATION BETTER AND MOST OF ALL, SNOOPING IN OTHER PEOPLE'S BUSINESS. THEY LOVE, LOVE, LOVE THAT. TALKING ABOUT WOMEN IS THEIR FAVORITE AND MAKING UP STORIES THAT OLD OLD MEN WOULD ENJOY. MISERABLE CREATURES ALL ARE THEY!

Since we have read all the statements about women and put together all the patterns we know who the two aldermen creepies are. It is easy to figure out. The remarks, off color and degrading to our women of the community, are enough to elect forthright human beings...NOT THESE ALIENS FROM ANOTHER PLANET. WE ARE ASSEMBLING ALL THE TRUTHS AND WILL GET TO AS MANY PEOPLE AS WE CAN BY KNOCKING AT DOORS AND INTRODUCING OURSELF. THAT IS WHAT THE PEOPLE LIKE. THEY LIKE PEOPLE WHO SHOW THEMSELVES AND TELL EVERYTHING SINCE THEY ARE GOING TO BE REPRESENTING US. IT WILL BE DONE!

You bring us the most important singular point: Introduce yourself to the people to get their vote. The cowards do not do that. They never darken the door of the voters. They are scared and cowardly. The people made a mistake last time and they need to not make a mistake this time or the town is doomed! It has gone downhill for the last few years and will continue with these worthless minds voting in a block for worthless things. We need to forge forward to get a new leader and after he is involved in the political scene we need to pay him a salary that he can devote all his time to the job. He cannot be of the same mind as those on there and do not elect people that are friends of friends or have made their name known on other boards against the people. This Chicago style politics is out the window in April. Elect anyone but Kelly abd his cronies!/////////Do yourself a favor and look around and ask yourself what progress has been made since they took over. Then Vote!! Vote for the person who will make this town like the other towns surrounding us!

Alderman comes clean on vulgarity

A Lockport alderman admits making vulgar remarks in a conversation with the deputy city clerk but accuses his political opponents of pressuring her to complain to police.
Ald. Tom Kelly's admission is sure to fuel an already heated political feud among the city's 3rd Ward aldermen and Mayor Tim Murphy's political faction.
Deputy Clerk Donna Tadey told police that Kelly (3rd) referred to another city clerk's office employee as a "black-widow-spider bitch," according to a Dec. 7 police report leaked to local newspapers.
Kelly also told Tadey that a city resident active in a Wal-Mart opposition group had "a nice ass, but, man, does she have a rotten personality." And he also called departing city administrator John McIntyre a "(screw)-up," according to the police report.
Tadey told police that Kelly's comments made her feel harassed, uncomfortable and fearful for her job.
Kelly said he has known Tadey for 15 years, and the two often traded off-color remarks, even faxing lewd jokes to each other.
"I thought I was talking to a friend," he said. "To me, being loud and vulgar and lurid is not harassment. I guess I offended her. I really feel like a fool."
Tadey could not be reached Friday for comment on her complaint. Messages left for Lockport police were not returned Friday.
The clerk's office employee of whom Kelly spoke disparagingly said she was "upset and very offended," adding that Kelly's version of events was ridiculous.
"I don't think Donna considers him a friend," she said. "I've known her for eight months, and I've never heard her use a swear word."
Mayor Tim Murphy said it was "outrageous" for Kelly to claim that Tadey was pressured into making a police complaint.
"He's making the remarks and then accusing her of being a liar," Murphy said. "I am confused by the whole thing. I don't know where his animus comes from."
Keep this in mind when you are asked for his vote in April. This an admission of what type of person Mr. Kelley is when it comes to relating to women.

Tom Kelly's rep precedes him. This is just the tip of the iceberg for him. He has offended many women in the community and he has been pretty mean to senior citizens too. Since he is wealthy, he must not understand the financial difficulties of many older people. He has backed cutting off benefits to senior citizens like the 50/50 program for sewer service. So he is offensive and unfair. No way he's getting elected. I hope that quote he said about that woman is on every postcard in the ward!
Take a look at how he deals with seniors in the 3rd ward. This is his "rep" and he wants the vote of the seniors and the women of the 3rd ward?

It all needs to be spelled out to the voters. This is an admission of this diaper mentality. Did you ever see him? You know the pirate on tv? He is as old as the hills and can't keep awake. Every now and then he wakes up, plays with his microphone, chews gum like it is going out of style, looks at his headmaster for directions, screams out every now and then, and then goes back to sleep. That is a candidate? That is someone that represents the women of this town in his ward? Women need to know his past. And to be sure they are keeping everything well hidden that the people need to know. They are only interested in getting elected on giving a few dollars off and then getting a loan to pay more to their pet engineers. What a group of irresponsible people! GO DARREN, GO!

This is comical but since it is true, it is very bad for our community to have such people representing us. They are over the hill! This guy has an aged mother in Wisconsin and he is aged himself or at least acts and looks like it. The fat woman does not know her head from a hole in the ground. The guy that leads the band is over the hill too. He is responsible for all the bad decisions that have been made this year and last year. The amounts of money paid out have been ridiculous to their friends! We have no development and we have no guarantees of it either. The only growth we had was when we had a young Mayor who had business sense. He is responsible for so much and now we have rented stores and more rented stores. And we have excuses and alibis while other towns prosper and go forward..we go backward. It is so disgusting but when you look at this group, you know the reason why. It is deplorable. It is inexcuseable. It is being done in other towns yet not here. Studies, studies and more studies and more money and more money being poured out of this town and yet nothing is done...nothing! The water and roads are deplorable. The downtown needs shaping up. Incentives and qualified people sitting in the chairs is the answer! The development would pay for some of that and even Texaco land would pay for some of the repairs if they had any business sense but they do not. So be careful when you vote, and please talk to the candidates personally or do not give them your vote. If they hide from you, they have something to hide! It is pure fact! Come April let's elect business minded NEW people for the Mayor and aldermen spots and not old men with old ideas that are stale and keep us from going anywhere.

Tom, and the rest of the "Slimys" will have a lot to be accountable for from now until the election. Let's see how much they gave to Robinson and Bert and Ernie in FY 2011-2012.

Forgot the bearded Santa Claus guy who is over the hill too. He takes up so much time and says nothing. He is a puppet too. Talk to all of them before you vote! They should tell you what they plan on doing for this town and why we have had nothing done for these last four years except rented store fronts. Development and rooftops bring money to the people in the form of taxes. If they really feel sorry for the people they would go for development. Developers are not even trying to get in here with this cranky, put down council majority.

Let's vote this sick majority out. This old fart is the friend and bobblehead of old Turdner. He sits there half asleep. Look at other posts today and you know who not to vote for. Vote for the new people who do things for our community. They are not doing anything except talking about their fellow residents whom they have done Zero.

The "creepy" majority in the Lockport City Council have given away $282,421.00 in 13 months in office. This giving of tax payer money was to Robinson and Bert and Ernie. What did they do to earn this "windfall"? How much will come back to the "Slimys" running for office in the Spring. Ask them when they come around asking for your vote. What will their answer be? I am sure we can get the amount of donations that the "Slimys" will report from Bert/Ernie and the Robinson gang.

I agree. But you won't know how much money Turner is getting from Bert and Ernie or Robinson. It will all be cash donations and Turner will never report it.

This is a "profile" of a Kelly Turner backed candidate running for re-election. If Turner doesn't publish a "Bio" and wants to be mayor; what does that say about "candidate Turner"? I am sure he can count on the women's vote seeing what he thinks of women.

This guy has a profile and his days on the city council should be over. He past his prime, really past. The Mayoral candidate named Kelly, 69 years of age, is way past his prime too with his stale ideas and stale comments about saving money for the water bill. He like week old bread! Let's have a fresh face, a new face, like Steve Strait. His ideas are extremely old and out dated and the town has looked that way since he and that bobblehead majority have taken the taxpayer's money and look around. Should you have any questions at all, just look around you. Everything that was done in this town was done by Mayor Murphey and his staff and city council. This group couldn't do what they did in four years if they tried. They do not have the business sense nor do they qualify for their seats with what they have done with our money. Steve Strait will put this city back on the right track, where it was years back, and we will be proud again..finally! This guy needs to retire and take old Dick and old Tom with him. STEVE FOR MAYOR!!

The taxpayers should have learned from the last election not to vote for every Tom, Dick, Kelly and Mary who put their "pretty faces" before the electorate. We need to be more discriminating in the next election. The April 9th election should not be a "beauty contest" like the one two years ago!

These comments by Tom Kelly have not been forgotten by the people. They hear them regularly in the City Council when he explodes on some unsuspecting citizen.

The question that can be taken from the December 2005 article is: when was it that Mr. Kelly began to feel like a "fool'? Was it when he realized he offended her or when he got outed for saying it? Considering his normal demeanor, probably the latter. Does Tom Kelly or Turner deserve the women's vote in the April 9th election? Ladies look how they treat and disparage women.

Can the people of Lockport put of with this type of individual for another 4 years? Tom Kelly has been useless to his constituents. He is tied to Turner, along with Neitske. Do the people of Lockport need this type of representation? Just look at the past and you will have the answer.
