The residents and taxpayers in our community have been kept in the dark about many pertinent issues that I believe should have been disclosed and with important decisions made without public discussion and behind the scenes it leads me to believe our elected officials are afraid of what we have to say. I believe if an Elected Official has violated their ethics, abused their position of power or broken the law then they should be held accountable . I will be glad to discuss at length the information I disclose but I will wait until after the meeting I choose to attend to disclose this . I hope you understand why ? Thanks
thats fine, like i said i appreciate all your efforts.
and thanks for the drop in gas prices.
yep I give that credit to you as you deserve it.

I wont post my name because the general public can be unpredictable and it offers nothing.

I really am just a regular citzen no political intentions or affileation

i have often watched the meetings in the past and I can hardly wait for the meeting now.

Keep up the good fight

Thank You , my intentions are to provide information to our residents that our Administration has refused to do , such as pushing for board votes on the Frech Market and the Vehicle Sticker Abatment without any public discussion and attempt to sneak issues through under the Consent Agenda portion of a board meeting where items are lumped together and with little or no explanation. The Illinois State Open Meetings Act requires them to keep us informed but they have failed miserably in their efforts and I believe it was with intent. They seem to believe they dictate to us but in reality they serve us and unfortunately have forgotten this, and when challenged they attempt to intimidate or belittle a resident and this is absolutely unacceptable. PS: We often are gouged here in Mokena with the Gas prices ! Have you ever seen one of our Elected Officials take a stand against this ?
Huh too

I have heard there was a small fund raising event or meet and greet, what have you on 3-8-13. I heard after the event that it was at Post Game Pub. I was just wondering why the event and any others are not listed on the mokena2013 website. Seems odd. Can anybody perhaps tell why they did not publicize this event a bit more. And if you did attend, how did things go. How well was it attended. Are there are more events planned and if so will there be more advance notice.
How about the FANS group any upcoming events that people might be interested in attending.
Also what happened to the mokenabuzz website, is that no longer up and running?

Jim Giglio I really appreciate the fact that you are asking the uncomfortable questions, and also the only one, along with Tino, with the stones to put a real name here. And no, I am not putting my name out there for the vindictive people in this town to smear me all over like they do everybody else. Keep up the good fight!

Thanks, maybe its me but I did not find that information on the website. Looked under news/events and did not see it. When was the last time the site was updated. And again, this site provides a free venue to get the word out. If I did not ask, it seems nobody is telling.

i think that makes me a new blogger.
( oh dear god I'm now a Blogger I hate that term)
I started reading about the burros /griffin stuff becuase it was amusing. then stumbled on to the 3 stooges.... more entertainment, but with the election coming up I wanted to find out some fact abouut both sides.
This is obviously not the place for that.
however I have learned a lot about SOME Mokena residents.

It definitly takes all types of people to make a village.
it just seems by reading most of the post we have our fair share of the "village idiots"

thats not a slam on you or anyone in paticular just an observation

I would not say village idiots at all. Just 2 groups that have very different ideas of how Mokena should be taken care. I personally am very passionate about Mokena and support the incumbents.

And again to your side as well. Went on the Mokena2013 website and saw no mention of last nights event or this upcoming one. Both sides have taken the time to create a website, but not the time to update them. At least put your upcoming events on the sites.

Hmmm....Let's see. Televised board meetings March 11, March 25, and April 8th. Which meeting will Mr. Giglio choose to speak at? Probably all 3 but I predict he will make his biggest rant on April 8th, the night before the election! But he will continue to yell at the incumbents that their timing on issues is all about the election. Whatever.

Hey everyone take a look at Joe Werner's Facebook and his whining complaint about nasty blogging on this site and his calling it Chicago Style Politics . Then take a look at his biggest supporters on here in particular the " Smarter than you all are " blogger and go back a few months and look at the viscious personal attacks , accusations , threats and name calling this supporter of Werner and his Incumbents has made. Then look at the companies Werner has hired to do campaign work ( polling etc ) and then see who is attached to Chicago Style Politics. Remember WERNER's attack on that 25 yr old kid a few years ago for realizing he couldn't continue his campaign due to FAMILY ISSUES ( sound familiar Joe ) and had to back out ? Come on Joe you can't have it both way's , go grab some tissues ! Grab some tissues !
