Nobody got Borgo "in".
He was elected because people were sick of Doyle's incompetence .

The former village attorney,John "Jack" Ardaugh is not 67, he is in his early 50's and I do not believe he lives on Spencer Road. Must be someone else.

Maybe its not him then. Who knows where he is living now since he left "the firm". He was instrumental in getting Borgo in though. As I recall, Ardaugh got Borgo his backing and also gave Doyle a bunch of bad information as Village Attorney to make sure Doyle burried himself. You can't trust anyone in the politcal arena. Ardaugh stabbed Doyle in the back telling Doyle Lakewood was needed because Manhattan needed "affordable housing" and then when people revolted against Lakewood, he Ardaugh "decided" he was wrong.

Yeah that's part of the story behind the rise of William A. Borgo. But the really big muscle and backing was the Walsh political machine. It was a two pronged attack; Ardaugh messes up Doyle and Larry Walsh with the aid of Bill Delaney pushes Borgo before the people. Walsh originally took office in 2004 and went to work right away. Borgo was recruited by Delaney. Even though Borgo was currently seated as the School District VP. When Borgo won in 2005, it came to as such a surprise he had not yet laid the requisite plans to step down from his post as School Board VP. So borgo violated Illinois law by sitting on two Boards, collecting two paychecks and in two principal positions. Hugely in defiance of Illinois law. Ever since Doyle has been trying to regain his standing in the political world.

Slim you are shady...would the real slim shady please stand up. Yeah he did and all you Manhattan political boys who won;t call a spade a spade are in denial. You are just hanging around hoping that the Walsh political machine deals something to you - problem is it ain't gonna' come because Will County is a big place and there are way more votes elsewhere in the county where the population is greater in numbers and requires more to pander too. Please you self-centric unaware of the bigger picture dumball.

School board members do not get paid. Know your facts before you run your mouth with false allegations.

It wasn't Larry Walsh who pushed Borgo. It was Jimmy Walsh the Township Supervisor and Forsythe the funeral home owner and original visions trustee candidate who put on the big push with the old Township Clerk Jim Patterson. Get your facts streight. Larry Walsh doesn't even like Borgo. He just has to put up with him until the people of Manhattan get smart.

Okay, maybe it was Jim walsh, bit Larry is feeding off the frenzy as well. Otherwise, big ol' Larry walsh would be down here pushing all kinds of good things on Manhattan. And he ain't. Right now they are all letting Manhattan go to waste. So what's the reason?
