Isn't anyone concerned about the upcoming election in our town?

As far as I am concerned the town is in good hands now.A couple of new people are running , one is a wanna be mayor who supports spending tons of the villages money on big box stores , the other is a bar owner in town. Got to tell you we don't need or want him or her. Both have way too much baggage.

I agree. Hansen is doing a good job as mayor, and the current trustees seem to be well educated on the issues and have common sense as well. I'm happy with the good they've accomplished in the past couple of years, and they'll get my vote to be retained.

S who's running in the township? Any challengers or are we stuck with the same old nepotism and the good ole' boy and girl club again? From the supervisor (S. Smouse)to the assessor (H. Marotta) to the deputy assessor whatever the heck she does (H Healy), to the Highway commissioner who is salaried at over $1,000 per mile for his 83 miles he's responsible for (M. Ring), I think they are all a big waste of taxpayer money. The County could take over their jobs very easily and the taxpayers would never miss those good ole boys and girls. What a joke that group is, but they're laughing all the way to the bank at taxpayers' stupidity!!

Not many good choices. Smouse needs to go but the guy running against him is a falling down drunk. The problem is that the Township is what the Village was. Controlled and ripped off by old time friends and family. The village finally turned the corner with competent elected people. Time for the same thing in the Townshio. Or better yet, do away with it as you suggest.

Totally agree with you!! Now we just have to get it done - Get rid of the Wasteful Township altogether. Time for some investigative news people like Pam Zekman to get involved. That would expose ALL of the township's employees part time work for their full time salaries. Yep, taxpayers are definitely getting ripped off paying for their salaries, their wonderful benefits, pensions, per diem, i.e., personal car use and mileage (can you imagine the assessor denying or questioning her sister, our deputy assessor, about her expenses), daily personal time off for personal errands (caught you Mr. Smouse, Mr. Ring, Ms. Morotta and Ms. Healy) and and their perks (can't forget those self-indulgent perks). Yep, the Village got a makeover and next is the Township!

Isn't this the Round Lake Park Forum? Why are you talking about the Antioch elections? What about the Round Lake Park Elections or the Avon Township Elections?

Your post showed up in the Antioch forum. Try putting the town you are posting about in your heading, and maybe Topix can be more specific.

Trying to be helpful, not sarcastic or anything.:)
