I was at my favorite restaurant last night and I heard a conversation that made me very happy!
Darren Deskin has filed a challenge to Turner's pettitions for mayor and he did it the same time that Turner's mom was admitted to the hospital. Turner won't have time to defend the challenge so he gets removed from the ballot. Steve Streit wins for mayor!

All's fair. Turner won't be mayor and the people will win.

This makes him look bad but I was not going to vote for Deskin anyway. I don't know who I will vote for Mayor cause I don't know Streit.

Most residents aren't familiar with Mr.Streit. Just about all I have talked to said that they don't need to.
he consensus was pretty much that the do know Turner and that is enough to vote for Streit. I must say I agree.

Turner challenged Joe Fracaro's petitions for 2nd Ward Alderman six years ago, and then lost to Joe when won both the challenge and the election. If Deskin can find a flaw or two with Turner's petitions for mayor, so be it! Turner knows very well how this game is played, because he has been playing it for years.

Exactly right. I can't stand Turner and he would be a HORRIBLE mayor, but he definitely knows how to play politics. This stuff is his specialty.

Maybe someone ought to look into Mr. Deskin's petitions for his aldermanic run. All's fair...right ! The same for ALL these dudes...including Streit. No one should be off the hook.

Sponge Bob had a chance but couldn't find anything wrong with any of his enemies' petitions. Just wait until Turner is examined by the hearing board...I'm sure there's a lot of indisgressions by Turner that will finally be viewed by the people!

I hope Deskin is right, because if he is wrong he will be liable for court costs.

If he can get Turner off of the ballot I'll be happy to contribute to the lawyer fees.

Yes Kelly...must keep up the propaganda. What is more amusing your lack of shame and intellect or time you spend on this site? You are brown, sticky stain on society and soon to be exposed.

I don't think that's true. This happens every election. Actually, I think Turner has done it to many people (and has had moderate success).

I think it goes in front of an election board. I believe attorney's do get involved, but I don't think there are "court costs" or any liability.

This will likely be another billable hour or two for Turners favorite lawyers and then we'll move on.

Hey Chum! For your information there is a time period when you can challenge petitions and that is past. If the "Slimys" wanted to they should have done the "due diligence" and put in their challenge. Now you, 4th Ward Mary and the rest of the "Slimys" are coming down on Deskin for doing what is legal.

Thanks for the "legal" aspect of this issue. Does not absolve Deskin from having "suspect" petition signatures or the other candidates as well....whatever the legal time limit suggests. Mr. Deskin has enough trash in his closet so it might be a good idea if he sticks to his own aldermanic issue and not worry about the mayoral race. But thanks "chum" for your legal insight and the usual slimy talk.

Deskin must really be an idiot if he thinks he is going to succeed. What an embarrassment. And believe me, I know a lot about embarrassment.

It sounds like Deskin's petitions were unimpeachable or the "Slimys" would have used their "Alinsky" tactics and attacked him. Read Rules for Radicals, this has to be the "template" of the "Slimys". Just attack your opponent with lies and innuendo. This is how "4th Ward Mary" got elected in the last election. They are now out doing the same to the people in the 3rd Ward and to Steve Streit.

Stop with the conspiracy crap already. If anyone is a "radical" it's folks like you who suspect everyone is a commie or leftist radical out to destroy Lockport ! Take a look around ! It's gonna take a lot more "SMARTS" than just a nice picture on a website to turn this town around or a guy that spouts off at a council meetings ! That goes for EVERYONE....new and old !

No not a conspiracy. Not a commie or radical. Nothing more than a HEAD COWARD is all Turner is. The COWARD and his puppets and made of mockery of the meetings, not saying that others have not done their share either, but take a look at any meeting, and it it like watching a Jerry SPringer show. You know the beginning, the middle and the end is near when the screaming and pouting takes place.

Chum you are a perfect example of old Saul, attack the messenger. This rhetoric has been perpetrated by the "Slimys" for the last 19 plus months. The tax payers of Lockport are not going to put up with the "cathartic renderings of Turner, Tom Kelly, Van Dyke or 4th Ward Mary. This will not happen during election time, that's a promise!

Your tired "message" is BORING already. By the way...YOU...do not speak for the taxpayers of Lockport...neither do I.
