It appears Steve Streit has taken a page out of the playbook of Lockport's most inept, incompetent, and disgraced former mayor, Tim Murphy. Streit is obviously using Murphy's scorched earth tactic. Streit continues to mail out lies about his opponent. Murphy was an expert at this. Murphy left office in disgrace and Lockport in shambles. Please don't allow a Murphy clone (Steve Streit) to be elected. We cannot go back to that disgraceful type of leadership.

Let's hope he's as effective a mayor as Murphy was. If he is then he'll double the sales tax revenue. He'll also bring in a boat load of property tax with the new commercial development.

Really, specifically, what did Mr. Murphy do that disgraced Lockport from a BUSINESS aspect (I don't want to here about him getting hit by the car)? Specifically what lies did Mr. Streit say personally, NOT the PAC that sent out the mailer. Remember I want specifics not generalities and conjecture.

I hope he's like Murphy. He's the reason for WalMart, Jewel and would have gotten Target here if not for Turner and his gang. Turner removed the inept staff and brought in true professionals who cleaned up the city. Now they've all left because of Turner and we're back to Cronyville.

Murphy didn't bring in any of those. Mitchel did most of the that. Jewel was first then Walmart. I live in Regency Point and Murphy told us he was against Walmart when he ran. Most of my neighbors are still not crazy about it.

Mitchell brought Jewel in yes, Murphy though brought in Wal-Mart and cleared out a lot of the dead wood at city hall.

Here is the archived story on Murphy when he decided not to seek another term. Murphy is the 3rd rail of politics for Turner as he has defeated him directly or indirectly for most of the last 10 years. So get ready for the vulgarities...

There you are little buddy I missed you. The Wal-Mart deal was finalized in 2005 http://articles.chicagotribune.com/2005-06-04... Mitchell was not the mayor when the deal was completed Murphy was http://www.amlegal.com/nxt/gateway.dll/Illino... $fn=default.htm$3.0$vid=amlega l:lockport_il

So now that has been established back to my original question. What did Murphy do that embarrassed the city from a BUSINESS aspect? Please try to use words that have more than one syllable and can be typed out in their entirety. The same goes for the Mr. Streit question as well.

Very nice! I'm ready for it, as usual he'll either ignore the question or resort to some insult about a sex with either my wife, mother, grandmother, sister or weight,or some homoerotic fantasy he has about taking one in the arse.

What is wrong with WalMart? One stop shopping when gas costs are up. Seniors have jobs which are part time supplements of their income. More tax dollars in the city to add to a declining tax base. Just think if Turner, Pizzaman and Tom Kelly had got their way, how much worse would the financial health of our city be?
NO WONDER HE HATES MURPHY

This sure makes this forum irrelevant and it is all achieved by documentation! Too bad he is not running again! He showed them how to be a Mayor of a City and do good work for the citizens.
Oh are you wrong

You better read the Herald News that is on this site. You look bad! Now, I wonder who you could be? You see documentation over hatred occurs here! Bad Day at Bad Rock for you!

The only thing he did was get head from one or two employees. We still are not sure if they were male or female.

Ok where's the proof? See you cannot stand the fact you've been called out as a liar and continually attack with smears. If you had any evidence of those allegations present them under your real name.

You have got to be joking, right? Frank Mitchell put Walmart on the table and I-355 brought in the rest. The only thing Murphy did is disgrace this town with his zipper down and hire inept people that made it so difficult to build in this town, we lost all hope of seeing growth.

Turner isn't the solution for Lockport, but Murphy surely wasn't the messiah.

Totally inaccurate, the deal was already in place for Walmart when Murphy took office, he just had to finalize it. Saying yes and where do I sign is not an accomplishment.
