I just read the article in the Mokena Messenger interviewing Frank Fleischer. He is thinking that being Mayor is a second livlihood for him? He is looking forward to being a full time Mayor? The Mayoral position in Mokena is not a full time position! Look out village employees! He will want one or two of your full time salaries!
LOL , The mayor nor the Board can increase or decrease an elected officials salary during a term. It must be done 6 months prior to the Election. State Law

LOL harder! Beat you blogging that info. earlier today on NOW WE HAVE THE 5 STOOGES blog #25. I know the salaries can't be raised until before the election of 2015. Fleischer will just keep turning in a bunch of petty expenses for reimbursement for the next 2 years until he can try to get his salary raised. Duhhh.....

Fleischer was simply touting the level of service that the people of Mokena may expect from him. Since he is retired, there will be almost no eventualities for which he will be unavailable.
For you to blow that statement up into his making a demand for full time pay is ridiculous on its face, and if it arouses any suspicion, it would have to be suspicions about the state of your mental health. You take liberties that you cannot justify. Let's keep it on the level of a campaign rather than a festival of lies, shall we?
Fleischers wife will not let him put in that many hours with no pay. Over the 16 years he was a trustee, you hardly ever saw her. I don't believe she is truly in favor of him doing this.

Smarter, I think you are coming across wrong. Don't argue with these people just state facts. I am still wondering why the fans group hired a south Holland caterer for their fundraiser as opposed to a Mokena company? No one seems to have an answer for that.

Probably because they got it for free and they offered the place a job if they get elected. That's the way they seem to do things.

Why did Mayor Werner and the INCUMBENTS not renew a contract for a Mokena Company and then hire a company from California for Website Mgmnt.? Why did Mayor Werner and the INCUMBENTS hire the Blue Island Mayors son who's father the Mayor is our Mayor Werner Boss instead of hiring a Mokena resident for the job ? Lots of unanswered questions !

The engineer has been an employeee for a lot longer than Werner has worked for Blue Island. You have not answered the question about the cateterer. Consultants come and go and do not provide sales tax to the village.

The Event was held in Mokena and all Beverages were sold by the VFW. Answer the question about the Mokena Website Company being passed over for a California Company and why the Political Consultant being Hired from Outside Mokena ? Games the Same !

Did Werner and the Incumbents look for a Mokena resident for the Engineers Position ? Does the Engineer they hired live in town ? Did Werner get his job because he Hired the Mayors son ?

Did Peloquin and the city council look for a B.I. resident for the water dept supervisors position? How about promoting from within? I think we all know the answer.

Did the park board publicize the job that Windburg got? Of course she lives in Mokena, but has no education for the job she got in 2010. Games the same.

Windburg lives in Mokena but is not qualified for the job she got in 2010. That job was not publicized. And since you want to dwell on the past, Tony helped run school district 159 into the ground. Years ago Fleischer voted against a sales tax increase that did nothing to hurt Mokena residents and did nothing but help Mokena finances without having to increase services. Games the same.

Blue Island residents can fight their own battles. Worry about Mokena.

You go by qualificaions. Must not feel there is a consultant from Mokena that suits their needs. Just like jobs, you don't hire someone just because they live in Mokena if they don't have the proper qualifications. ie:MaryBeth Wndburg for park district rcreation director. If someone from outside Mokena has better qualifications, hire them. The main thing is that the job opportunity was available for everyone to see.
