The city should help them out if they are having a hard time. They are respected and run like a business. They have done great things and nobody talks about them in a disrespectful manner. They have a great reputation and this town needs them! They are a cherished organization ran by a great lady, Mary Kay Campbell.

Some of the money that is being spent on engineering and private law firms by the majority ought to go to hometown people that are fighting for Lockport's future, like the Chamber of Commerce. We will watch and see if that is the case and if anybody opposes it. If they oppose it, they are working AGAINST OUR TOWN NOT FOR IT!

Most Chambers have a board of directors who vote to spend money. Who is on the board of directors for the Lockport Chamber of Commerce? How did they get in debt and for what?

They have been dragging the "Slimys" uphill for the last 18 months. You would be broke and tired dealing with those ignoramuses too! "You can't make a silk purse out of a sow's ear"! The people in the Chamber are not miracles workers. No matter how hard you work you need support. Take a look at those in the Majority and ask your self: who would buy anything from these people? Do you think that a business person would invest in Lockport knowing their history the last 18 months. My name is Kelly, Tom, Dick and Mary. I am here to help you! Ask the developers that came for help from these guys the last 18 months. They are still picking the knives out of their backs.

Most of their money went for improvement and projects that had the possibility of improving Lockport. Maybe they failed but it is for sure the City of Lockport did not put any money forth for any projects that would help the people. They never put money under the table! Now who does, you might get the jest of that! And where did all the city money go; but of course the taxpayers are paying that one, right? The city has all the taxpayer money and the majority sure knew how to spend it. WHERE ARE THEIR CHECKS AND BALANCES, HUH? INFORM US ON THAT ONE, RIGHT? THEY JUST GET THEIR MAJORITY AND VOTE IT IN AND PAY OFF THEIR FRIENDS. NICE IF YOU CAN DO THAT! RIGHT?

Now I wonder who started this forum? It sure is easy to see! Wanting to know who is on the board of directors? hmmmmm.....now don't we wonder who started this and what will be made up about it??? The court jester is at work, the maker upper of stories is at work again! I will tell you what they will show the residents their books. They are not afraid to do that. Does the same hold true for the City Council? hmmmm....I bet not! As someone said, money in the pocket is not reported. hmmmm.....I wonder!

This is the web page of the leadership of the Chamber. As you can see Lockport's own Pete Colarelli is on there front and center. Guess who is posting on here trying to deflect? Could it be Pete?

More lies Pete?

Here he is again attacking the good people of Lockport. He never stops. Mary Campbell is the head of this organization with a top score of a wonderful reputation. We would trust all of these people, all of them. They are for our town.

No doubt this thread was started by KT or one of his gang to start smearing the guy running against him. Guess what KT he wins no matter what, because everyone knows how you act and conduct yourself.
Thanks Pete

Is the Chamber broke, Pete? Tell us the truth.
Who do they owe money to? Did you vote to spend them in to ruin?

Tell us Pete? Can you tell the truth?

If anyone needs to know how to spend the taxpayer's money just ask the majority and the leader? of them. They have shoveled it out and keep doing it all the time while they deflect everything and try their best to wreck reputations as is their practice. You ought to know Warrenville, Naperville, or whatever isps you are using. What has Pete got to do with it anyway, Ms. Campbell is the head of it. As usual you make NO sense but you keep up your dirty deeds. We get it you hate Pete. We get it you do not like the Chamber even tho they are representatives for this town. Why don't you just quit while you are ahead? Save us some crumbs while you spend thousands!!!!! Laughable!!!!!
