How can Colarelli participate so bitterly in politics and still be a spokesman for Citgo? Do they know he is all over Topix? Don't most corporations want spokesmen to be non controversial? Isn't there a danger of getting politicians mad and then they give Citgo a hard time?

It can't be good for the employees.

Citgo. Pffft. Ultimately his boss and profits go to Hugo Chavez. He may tell us Citgo is a US company headquartered in Houston but the truth is it's incorporated in the US and owned by the nationalized oil company of Venezuela whose president is a Marxist dictator.

I've talked to Pete when he's been campaigning in the past and we talked about Citgo. He never claimed it was an American co.

My only concern is for employees. If Colarelli is starting trouble will local politicians and those politicians take it out on Citgo, that can't be good for the employees. In other words a spokesman shouldn't be involved in political fights at all. They should only be talking about Citgo in a positive way.

I don't think corporations want spokesmen to be involved in anything negative that could hurt the corporation.

Maybe he should get a real job and he won't have to file bankruptsy as he did in 2005. I did some snooping which is very interesting. Yes, we can snoop too. Citgo or wherever a person works knows that Pete serves and he serves well. He is a good person to be a representative for the people and that is a big business plus. It hasn't hurt their business, it helps their business having a representative that is a family man interested in his community. Come on...Kelly...come up with something better than that. And better yet, get a real job and get off your computer. And, I am not Pete but a business person who could buy and sell you!

There are hundreds of employees employed by Citgo. Pete works and what about all the jobs YOU and your group turned down! You do not believe in development, you believe in talking down people and trying to make people believe you. You are a repulibcon and a man for himself. This man has a large family, a job and you are trying to demean him. You are one shameful man. You will serve out your turn and then take your fat belly and slither away!!

Correction: This post is not associated with the GDS post, although I do not agree with his analogy. People do not care. I get my gas at Citgo in Lemont because it is the cheapest and lots of people do. I saw four Lockport people there the day I was there. You would be surprised who owns what today but you know what a job is a job when you have a family to feed and clothe. Now when it comes to you know who, he has nothing absolutely nothing but himself and he is all for [email protected]

funny how the democratically elected are Marxist dictators if they don't comply with US corporate bullying. The oil is the Venezuelans, and Chavez has spread the wealth to the poor in his country much more than the previous US-approved leaders.

Still trying to deflect, deceive others aren't you? It is not working, you self hero! Oh, now it is the Citgo Man writing against his enemy, Pete. He is only so jealous of him that he writes. If he ran tomorrow he would win overwhelmingly! He is well liked and very solid in all he believes in...family man with a great family who he works for every day and represents his people by talking out and answering...something the group or should I say slate, does not!

What are you freaking talking about? What term? What are you smoking? Crack? You know nothing about my political conviction,whether I'm a male or female or where I work for that matter! What job did I turn down? Who are my people? Did you take your meds today? And sorry, if you've read my blog that's all I talk about is development in Lockport. Please read it then get back to me. Thanks.

I was just making a general statement about Citgo. I honestly had no right to pull Pete in on it other than to make it look like I was not hijacking the thread. I'm just miffed. Budweiser is a foreign company as is Chrysler, RCA... The list goes on. Heck the future of Wonder Bread is in a bidding war with a Mexican company. It's bad enough we don't make things in this country anymore, ship jobs overseas but now entire companies are becoming no longer American. Sorry for the rant .....

I know GDS isn't, but Whimpy is more interested in this thread than a normal person would be.

I just think most corporations want their spokespeople to stick to the company message. I think that's a fair statement.

In the Cyber-world of a short, fat, pasty, balding 64 year old loser wouldn't you be here too if you were him. Online you can be anybody or just find an outlet for your overflowing feelings of inferiority and hate. I don't blame Turner for living on line with a half dozen proxy servers going at once. What is he to do campaign on his accomplishments and sparkling personality?

I for one don't blame Kelly Franklin Turner for being here all day and night. Life has deprived you of what so many others have i.e. a family, normal appearance and odor, a semi-normal personality, social acceptability in any form. Instead you were dealt a short deck of cards that well...it goes without explanation.

You rolled into Lockport over the age of 40 with no background, no job, no family, no money and you have been trying ever since to make some headway to no avail, just spinning those wheels in that muddy driveway of yours...so to say...I say...you go girlfriend! You have left a mark on this town, while it may be a stain it is still a mark.

It has been a rough ride for you little fella. I mean you lost low level election races to the likes of Joe Fracaro and Devandra Trivedi? That had to hurt and still you didn't end it all right then, I know most people would have got a rope, bottle of whiskey and a wobbly stool at that point.

If this 15th attempt at local political office fails, you can try and take over the Chamber since you are showing interest in that now. Or maybe start a homeowners association for where your $40,000 home with the gravel and mud driveway sits and run for homeowners association president. The world is your Oyster Kelly Franklin Turner. Never stop! Go Kelly Go!!!

Is Walking small Colarelli. His posts seem so bitter. He sure posts as a lot of different people. I guess Colarelli doesn't want to address the subject.

This little guy walks over everybody and lies in doing it! He is the Kingpin of Lockport, he thinks. He is getting landslided in votes come April. We the people are taking over!

I still think that Citgo would want Colarelli to stay out of politics. It doesn't do them a bit of good. I think that having a spokesman be involved in outragious controversy like the Chamber only reflects badly on Citgo and takes away from the message they are trying to get out.

I just think a spokesman should be a spokesman without all the other issues cluttering up messages.

Here's where you're wrong, Turdner.

Colarelli is very well-respected in the community and does alot of good for the reputation of his company.

In fact, taking down an evil despot like you will only increase his poularity in Lockport.

You have forgotten that you are a hated, little weasel who leaves behind a trail of wreckage and depair and most people wish you would fade away.

Pete's the good guy who's gonna take you out.
