Tif Passes in Lockport

Burcenski from CARE was there with all her papers, but she didn't have anything to say. Kathleen Konicki wasn't there with all her misinformation about the TIF and Turner wasn't there either. Everyone who spoke for the record supported approval of the TIF. All the aldermen present voted for approval of the TIF with the exception of Tom Kelly, who voted no. Mike Kelley was not present. Lockport's TIF district is now a matter of fact and is no longer a campaign issue, so it really doesn't matter what the various candidates think about it.

<quoted text>I am going out and have a steak today, it is a great day for Lockport, and the room was full of well wishers last night as I watched it on television, I am so very proud of our Mayor and the entire City Council and the speech they gave--less the one old creepy guy with his kelly turner views--you have succeeded beyond measure for downtown and Lockport streets and improvements and watch it grow and grow. As Mr. Tierney said it is not a tax increase. He is a great spokesman for it, we were so proud to listen to him and Mr. Collarelli spoke so elegantly. Lockport you are the best and again thanks to our wonderful Mayor and City Council and all our wonderful downtown merchants!
Where are you going for that steak? Orland or Joliet?

Homophobe. Is it because Greg likes to drop his soap in the shower over at the station? Is that where your anger towards gays comes from?

Some in Lockport are such sore losers, they can't admit defeat, or move on. Even after much time has elapsed! Just enjoy the beauty of the day, the sun is out! It's a new day!

See, that's what frustrates me about Kelly Turner and his bobbleheads, like Vito DiBeasi, Tom Finnen, and Dick VanDyke.

They made the TIF their main platform issue and have been ragging it ever since they began campaigning, yet not one has the courage to show up and defend their position publicly. They are cowards who know that their positions are not tenable rationally, yet they continue to send out mass mailings spewing their propoganda. They know that their ideas cannot be defended in the light of day, so like sewer rats, they spread malicious garbage in the dead of night.

That's what I liked about Deskin and Porfilio last night. They took a stand in support the TIF and basically told the council how they would vote if they were sitting up front. Isn't that what we all want from our leaders? Where were the other candidates? The TIF vote is probably the final nail in the coffin for Tom Kelly. If I lived in the second ward Porfilio would get my vote.

I believe that Deskin apposed the TIF originally and then flip flopped. Not sure that that is what we need in a leader! Also Portfilio is in the 3rd Ward not 2nd.

I want to say that the business owners, Mr. Tierney, Mr. Colarelli, The city council-one, all the people who spoke affirming the decision making, and last but not least--the Mayor of our proud city of Lockport for passing the TIF last night. It is law, a done deal now, and all the critics can talk and talk but it makes no difference as they cannot harm the business people anymore. Mr. Tierney said it best about the complainers. He represents Mainstreet! We are so proud of all of you, you have done your job well.
