It must be so lonely for Turner and company.

When they knock on doors, people call the Streit Campaign for signs.

They called all their cronies and got their yard signs in Art Coon's daughter's yard, Jimmy Louch and Dave Palya's rental properties, every Piazza family member's yard and the misinformed Daum and Karli residences.

Now they've blown their wad on all their drunken friends at the Moose and Legion, so who will take their yard signs now?

Even their so-called "friends" take their signs but are telling others they are voting for Streit, Deskin, Vandermeer, Smith and Capadona.

They can't in good conscious vote for the Slimy's because they know they're total idiots.

Poor Turner...it's so lonely in the gutter!

I attended the Lago candidate forum last night and believe that this blog thread is very accurate. Kelly Turner looked VERY lonely last night. There were close to 100 residents at the meeting and most left knowing that Steve Streit is the far better candidate for mayor. Kelly Turner offered no real passion for Lockport or a vision for our future. Steve Streit was articulate, professional and had a real grasp of the issues. Turner appeared cocky, cold and sarcastic.

Turner’s sole platform seems to be water rate reductions, but his own engineering company admitted that our water system did not have enough funding to really take care of all our problems. Turner does not have an answer for that and he looked tired and devoid of any real ideas.

The most embarrassing point of the night for Turner came later when Denise Marynowski, a Lago resident and city council member, interrupted a conversation he was having with some of our residents and screamed “Liar!” She had to be removed from the area by her own family members. If this is his head cheerleader, then he has a lot of work to do because it made him and his campaign look directionless and desperate.

I know that the 100 people there will be calling and emailing their Lago friends and neighbors to endorse Steve Streit for mayor. I believe it is fair to say that Turner has lost any support he hoped to find in our community and I don’t believe that Marynowski will survive her re-election bid either.

I wish I could have been there to see it first hand. I'm sure the forum was an eye opener for many of the residents. I especially find it rather amusing that Ald. Marynowski had to be escorted out of the building by family members after having a melt down for the second time in public. I hope the residents of Lago Vista keep that in mind when she is up for election in two years.

This is the person that they picked to represent the 4th Ward in the last election?? Will the real 4th Ward Mary stand up!

Here's one of the letters to the editor:

Dear Editor,

Why did Lockport Alderman Kelly Turner and his allies walk out on residents who spoke against what they've done to our City? Turner actually said residents are like Iranian delegates and that he can walk out on us just like he would walk out on Iran.

Lockport residents are speaking out because of the offensive behavior and questionable decisions that have been made by Mr. Turner and his majority since they took their seats in 2011. Our residents have spoken against the majority's no-bid contracts, secret meetings and wasteful spending on duplicative studies that benefit their friends.

Our residents have called into question Mr. Turner's claim that he is trying to save taxpayers millions by closing wells and stopping other needed water system repairs without any research or engineering to justify such actions. They have asked Mr. Turner to tell the whole story and identify the risks he and his majority are taking with our City's ability to provide a safe water source and a system that has the pressure to adequately fight fires. Everyone wants to save taxpayer dollars, but at what cost to our safety?

And to top it all off, Turner and his majority boycotted two meetings on economic development and our water system, two of the top priorities of all Lockport residents.

The taxpayers of Lockport want to see an end to the bickering. They want to see collaboration and cooperation. They want us to attract quality development to the City to ease their tax burdens and offer amenities that other municipalities already enjoy.

Walking out on residents while they voice these opinions is childish and counterproductive. Elected officials need to have thicker skin than that and our residents deserve better.

Here's another letter:

Dear Editor,

I read that Kelly Turner was holding secret meetings and was ignoring residents who would come to meetings to complain about him. So when I saw that he was running for mayor, I decided to try to find out more about him. The problem is that he has made sure he is a ghost without any trace of a biography anywhere.

Turner is a career politician who has run for office nine times in the past 13 years and has lost two-thirds of those elections. He has no local connections to civic groups, churches or schools in Lockport, and he moved his business out of Lockport to Romeoville some years ago. His business is a print company for political campaigns at which he has made $1.7 million on political propaganda. We found this out when the City paid him $1,500 to send us a mailing on the electric aggregation issue.

In the past he has demanded that the City publish their newsletters and other mailers with his company and has voted to double his alderman salary. What's more, he refused to report his campaign contributions in his last election to the State of Illinois like all other politicians do. Is this why he wants to be mayor? Does he want to pad his pockets with more City contracts and use his office to get more political insider accounts?

It is for these reasons that we cannot elect Turner to office ever again. If you are proud of who you are and where you came from, why would you hide that from voters? It's why they are called public officials.

It is so clear that Turner only wants to be mayor so he can get sweetheart deals with his political hack buddies. He wants to force the city to do all their business with him and pressure other politicians to use his print company.$1.7 million in contracts? Why is he still wearing suits from the Good Will?
