There is just no way to describe Gaboreks inanity with what she is saying. For example, she is claiming that Hanson did not provide leadership on the Lake Michigan water consortium. That is simply not true.

With the exception of her friend Scott Pierce, the majority of the Board AND Hanson supported participation in the group, including sharing in the funding of its activities. Only when the group stopped being viable because of some towns changing their minds and moving in different directions did Antioch pull out of the project, and only to conserve taxpayer dollars. Work is still being done by the Village on bringing Lake Michigan water to Antioch but this time without pouring money into a consortium going nowhere. She is uninformed about the options being pursued, and in the process of trying to make the Mayor look bad, has also managed to slap each of the Trustees in their face.

I am really sick of the hash being thrown around by this bimbo. She can't run on her experience or her record. Hanson can and is. Hanson deserves another four years. Ms Gaborek deserves to be ignored.

We have hard working, competent, educated, and professional people on the Board, many with extensive business experience and extensive public service experience. Gaboreks belief that she is the one to lead them and "educate" them is laughable and an insult to the best elected team Antioch has ever had.

Take your side show somewhere else Mary. Your rhetoric is stupid, demeaning, and invalid. If you want to serve your community, start where you are qualified. Ask for a Committee role or run for Trustee where you can have an opportunity to learn some humility and about how Antioch actually works.

Apparently this woman has never heard of the Illinois Open Meeting Act. We don't need a Mayor telling others what to do in back room meetings. We have already experienced the Wizard of Oz process before Hanson became Mayor. We don't need more and Gaborek needs to understand the law.

The major problem with this Moron is that she lies to get to her perceived end. She clamed at the township meeting she can bring retail to Antioch, you mean like the market place fiasco she blamed every one for when the economy tanked. I guess she wants to bring Antioch back to the Larson days of inept leadership tax money pissed away with no regard to the taxpayer for the benefit of the then selected elected officials . Well Geborek we don't want to go backwards, were happy with town in the black with more and more improvements run by smart elected business minded people , not your pie in the sky lie's. You are not selling a used car here you know. But nice try anyway, I'm sure you are going to get a few votes but they are not in office anymore , they were voted out awhile back.

OMG, what a whack job/moron this woman is. She needs to have her head examined. If this woman gets elected all of Antioch would become unraveled. She obviously doesn't go to the meetings (the last few months doesn't count). I go to almost every village meeting and where was she during the discussions about the Lake Michigan water being brought to Antioch??!!-geez she wasn't there. GO FIGURE!!! Larry and his administration did a very extensive study looking into getting Lake Michigan water just the same way other towns did. Like the article said Larry doesn't run a one man show. The decisions that are made are done by the trustees voting on it and what they feel is in the best interest of the village. They are informed votes with knowledge of what's going on via the studies that are conducted. Hello the trustees do village "things" outside regular village meetings, they also attend meetings that have to do with things on the village agenda which also includes the Lake Michigan water issue. Also Larry has a very good staff (Jim Keim-Village Administrator). Larry will break a tie if need be. He still is on top of things and things are and have been getting done these last four years. He has an excellent track record to PROVE it. She is so full of hot air. I can't believe the crap that comes out of her mouth. She has nothing to go on against Larry so she just starts grabbing things out of the sky hoping she can make it stick. She is just an incompetent puppet for the past administration that put Antioch on a path of self destruction (I'm sure you heard of Dorothy Larson) and her former idiot friends yes that includes ex-police chief Forester-well those are the idiots that are trying to weazle their way back into control thru this joke of a person called Mary Gaborek. Mary you are better off running your little household as a housewife and NOT running a village. The village is not a PTO for grade school where you figure out where to hold the next kid party and collect a few cereal box tops to help with the school. The mayor's job requires some "know how and experience" which she obviously has none and it shows. Her too few brain cells is not enough to run a village. She also appears to be a flat out liar (she doesn't attend board meetings like she claims too (a few months doesn't compare to several years of attending). I tell ya she already has Larson written all over herself. If she is a liar now imagine if she got elected. The village has taken 20 steps forward since Larry was elected back on 2009 and if Gaborek wins that would send the village into an out of control backwards tailspin. This twit bimbo Mary Gaborek is definitely not the right choice for Antioch--she would be like committing "village suicide". She can't even give good speeches. PEOPLE IF YOU'RE SMART VOTE FOR LARRY HANSON FOR MAYOR AND KEEP ANTIOCH MOVING FORWARD IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION.

Totally agree. Gaborek equals incompetence and inexperience and she has no clue on how to run a village. Larry Hanson equals competence and experience and has proved himself over the last 4 years that he does in fact deserve another 4 year term. Gaborek is just making an ass out of herself and goes to show you how uninformed she really is which is not good for someone trying to get voted in as mayor. She just runs her mouth off without a clue to what the facts really are and tries to cut Larry down in order to bring herself up not to mention the slap in the face as to what she has said about the other trustees. The only thing she is good at is being a experienced idiot and her true colors have really shown themselves that she positively is NOT MAYOR MATERIAL.

I hear Gaborek is now running around town claiming Hanson stopped Antioch Marketplace several years ago. Also not true. He voted yes with the Board and approved the development. Nearly a year after approval with no building underway, the developer came back to the Village asking for a $13 million sales tax handout that with interest would have added a sales tax burden to shoppers of over $23 million. A burden the developers earlier rejected as "unworkable" but later embraced as "no problem" as they sought to salvage their failing project caused by the rapidly collapsing economy in 2008/2009. He and two other Trustees voted against that handout but 3 other Trustees and the Mayor approved it. It still failed as many thought it would. There was a concern at the time that the developers were grabbing the $13 million to sweeten the deal for another developer who had adequate funding.

Antioch Marketplace was not the only development in the area that never got off the ground. Three other big ones in Lindenhurst, Grayslake, and Volo collapsed as well. All caused by the economy, not Larry Hanson.

It's becoming clear that Gaborek's so called clean campaign has turned ugly, and someone needs to call her out on her lying. To put her lying nicely, she lacks a broad perspective that embraces the facts. And this folks, is one more reason Gaborek needs to lose big. The taxpayers in Antioch don't need a liar in charge here. We already have one of those in Washington.

Someone needs to publicly call this woman out and set the record straight. Shame on her willingness to say anything to get elected.

She must be hiding behind village hall, nobody has heard a peep out of her for awhile. Would anyone know if the rumor is true that she has built a shrine on the old market place property and she go's back there to pray to construction god's at night ?

What's with her face on signs all over town? Is she trying to use her feminine "charm" to get votes? It really is a very nice picture of her and I am sure when it was taken 20 years ago she looked exactly like it. Not to say that she is not an attractive lady, but she is 49 or 52 (depending on who she is talking to - her age seems to be a movable feast), but she is showing it. Not fair to attack people on their looks, but then it's not fair to try to use looks to achieve some goal. Unless of course, you are a woman.

Although I would never vote for her, I wish her well, and I also wish that she would run on her plans and capabilities, not on the lies and distortions she is campaigning on.

You make my point. There are NO pictures of guys, just of her. Why? I suspect because they are not desperate narcissists.

In answer to your question, I don't want to look at any of their ugly mugs. What they look like has nothing to do with past, present, or future performance, although Ms. Gaborek apparently feels it has a lot to do with why she should be elected. I disagree. I look at credentials, experience, other objective qualifications, and results people have achieved. I recognize that the masses in our country get spun up on issues such as hairdo's race, smile, spouses, kids, pet dogs, and the like. And that is part of the reason our country is in the toilet. What someone looks like is no predictor of qualifications or performance.

Please don't ask stupid questions.
