Why would anybody run for Mayor in this town? If you put your name out there it will be dragged through the dirt in order to ruin your reputation. Your business will be hurt because they dragged you through the dirt and customers checking you out will turn away. Your job will suffer because people will believe the trash being said about you.
Everybody you talk to will wonder if the stuff is true.

I don't get why anybody is interested.

Those guys out there will say anything about you and you can't do anything to fight back and restore your name. Who needs it? They have been going after everybody who has anything to do with the city. If a guy votes one way, they call him a crook. If a guy votes the other way they call him a crook.

Who needs that crap?

Kelly Turner seems to need it. This is the second try for mayor by this ego manical person. By the fact that his name and ego maniac are used in the same sentence, tell us why he would need to run and lose so much.

A perfect example of what people in Lockport public office face. Why would a sane person put themselves and family through that? These jerks attack all the time and it never stops. It doesn't matter which side you are on.

If a person is honest and he enters into politics there is nothing to face except doing good. However, when you have liers in town that make up stories about everyone and falsehoods with NO facts behind them you have the problem of your reputation being ruined by these weirdos. They put everything out there and hope it sticks because they offer the moon to people and give nothing to them but headaches and empty wallets. This town use to be like that until we got carpetbaggers in here that are destroying our town. The honest and intelligent business man does not want to be involved. I say get involved and tell the truth about yourself: your family, your education, your plans for Lockport, and what has been done the last few years to development. The people are smart and they will believe the honesty. Tell the people you are doing away with no bid contracts and tell them how much has been spent. You will notice in the upcoming Legend PEOPLE DO NOT LIKE NO BID CONTRACTS. IT IS IN YOUR FAVOR. VOTE FOR NEW, COMPLETELY NEW, LEADERSHIP FROM THE OUTSIDE. GET RID OF THE CRONY CHICAGO STYLE POLITICIANS AT THE BALLOT BOX AND WHEN YOU ARE IN SPEAK UP AND DON'T LET THEM BULLY YOU. IT TAKES A STRONG LEADER TO MAKE A MOCKERY OUT OF THE MESS WE ARE IN THE LAST TWO YEARS! GET DEVELOPMENT GOING AGAIN! TALK TO ALL FORMER MAYORS THAT ACCOMPLISHED SOMETHING IN ALL THE TOWNS. GO FOR IT, THE PEOPLE OF LOCKPORT WILL THANK YOU. AND GO TO EACH HOUSE IN LOCKPORT AND TALK TO THE PEOPLE, AND LET THEM KNOW YOU, AND TALK ABOUT YOURSELF AND WHAT YOU WILL DO. DON'T BE FREAKED OUT BY THE OPPOSITION THAT WILL ONLY TALK ABOUT THE OTHER GUY. THIS GROUP HAS ACCOMPLISHED NOTHING, NOTHING, NOTHING AND MORE NOTHING! GOOD LUCK, YOU HAVE OUR VOTE AND MANY OTHERS WHO WANT A COMPLETE CHANGE OF THESE BOBBLEHEADS.

Pete Colarelli, King of the endless paragraph.
Pete is one of the pathetic morons who post all day long on this site. He usually starts the slanderous remarks and they are quickly followed by remarks from the other side. It goes on and on.
