Apparently my open letter to Kelly Turner was met on deaf ears. If these candidates want to get together for a mayoral debate (and they should) I'm all for getting it together and making it happen. Send me a message boys and I'll do what I can to facilitate such an event. I think it can be pulled off. Let's walk the walk cowboys !!!!!

NO NO NO NO Any person who calls a local resident zany is not a resonable person and I would never debate this character. He is insulting and he never answers the questions at all. In fact on the YouTube Video when Mrs. Peretta asked him a very civil question he never answered it,,as usual. We have seen enough of him and know enough of his tactics and Steve has a profile on the internet. Steve will go directly to the people, his opponent will not. He runs from people. I say No..I say go to the people, shake their hand, tell them your vision, and you will win! Steve will do that! Steve will win! That is my opinion, Steve has been insulted enough and tricks played on here on him and Pete. These are good men with good reputations and nobody cares about debates. They learn more from the person going to their home and talking to them or calling them up! Steve offers all of that and more!
He is yuck yuck

Political trickster would circumvent all answers and try to make himself look good, bringing up the water rates ho hum zzzzzz, the chamber ho hum zzzzz, and nothing about himself, always the other guy is bad. Well in this case it is the other way around, Steve is Straight forward, just like his name Steve Streit. He is responsible and will do the best job he can to right this city. It is in need of a good honest man rather than the other choice!

Oh, lets not come up with reasons not to do this. You are all sounding like typical Lockport politicians in the form of the kings and queens of NO, never, nyet,zero. They are who they are. Lets do this and let the voters decide.

Smoking Mirrors is all the opponent is...Steve does not have to debate and fifty to one hundred people show up. It is not going to determine the election. The election will be won on people voting for the candidate who shows up at their doorstep and finally talks to them about a vision of Lockport. He will never do that,never. He never has and never will. Do you know anything about him. No, and you never will. Do you know something about Steve? Yes, and he will be talking to you at your doorstep. A debate with this clown is not something I would recommend. He will never answer the questions. He has been asked over and over in front of cameras and has been trying to sell himself to the public from day one. He is going to lose! Your idea would work if you had a normal candidate. You do not!

The voters will decide. They have seen far too much of one guy already and his puppets too. I am not voting for him or his puppets. I want new leaders and we will get them this time around. We are going to doors and talking to the people directly. It is a big waste of time to have insults thrown your way by the opposition that are untrue. Steve is honest and will show the people what they are missing!

I've never met a group of people so opposed to a debate in my life. So 50 people show up. It could get in the Legend. WJOL, the community TV channel. Say what you want but neither are knocking on everyone's doors. Word of mouth is a factor here. Keep coming up with reasons not to debate people.

In the 2011 election for the 4th ward alderman they had a 4 person debate. Three of four showed and the eventual winner of the race, cut out at the last minute with the excuse of "runny bowels". I wonder what kind of "disease" Turner would use to escape the public debate if it ever came to pass. Remember these people are "Slimy" without shame.
With him it is not 1 on 1

I find it an insult to debate that type of person that has steadfastly stood as a representative and done nothing for the people. I prefer to shake the hand/s of all the people that are voters and speak for myself not debate a nobody such as we have on the council. That is an opinion that stands within reasoning. Debates are not what win elections, truthfulness, honesty and meeting the people firsthand! I would suppose Kelly would write the questions and it is another trick to try to lower the person running against him. Did you hear him call Darrin ZANY ON THE TAPE LIKE WAS MENTIONED ON A POST? To me, that is as insulting as you can get and his puppets fell right in line with him. Out with all of them...that place stinks right now! I think profiles are important and to me, Steve has a lot of good ideas and will be a fine Mayor because he is a good person. By the way, when he wins, and he will, he needs to set the tone of the CEO. The CEO does not cow down to aldermen that speak out of turn. Usher them out of the building and hear no more from them! It is Robert's Rules and it is a business meeting. If they do not adhere out they go!!! If they lie enough they might get elected and they will!

The Topix has a 'message' system. However I think you need to be registered as it asks for 'Topix Username'.

Sounds like Colarelli doesn't want his puppet to debate. It would be hard because he wouldnt be able to sit next to him and pull the strings.

I think Turner, who is never at a loss for words, would probably relish a debate.

Turner wouldn't want a debate. He would have to explain the disaster of the past two years. He is never seen in public. He never attends any city events. He doesn't give a damn about anyone but him. Did you see his latest assault on the public at the last council meeting?

He'd have to explain himself. He can't. He wouldn't show.

This is the kind of leadership that we have with all the "Slimys". Never show up for anything: blame, distract, attack. This is the way of Saul Ailinsky and his bodies. "Never let a crisis go to waste". If you don't have one create one. This will be the "Slimys" MO for the next 3 months. They don't care who gets hurt as long as they win.

Is that you Colarelli? I don't think it would be hard to get Turner to debate Streit.

So angry, Colarelli? Let your puppet boy be free. If you let him go and he comes back, that will prove that he still loves you.

It is Carol Stream Kelly showing his frustration again! He can't get his way! Heheheheheheheheh! Keep trying with your idiotic statements and I am not Petey Boy, as you call your enemies. Too bad, old man, you are failing in your endeavors! These guys are their own men, and you don't even fall in the man category. You and your bobbleheads meet every morning. We know! How is John and Ron Corn and Margerita? I love your friends. We are keeping track!
