You see a guy sucking hundreds of thousands of dollars in "consulting" fees out of a working clas community and you immediately think - political bias?<quoted text>
Only a coward would resort to personal attacks on an anonymous internet board.
Dan Proft is an intelligent, professional public relations expert who is worth what he is being paid to do. Anyone who knows him knows that he is always working 24/7 and is the best there is. The work he does for Cicero is much more extensive than this article let's on.
This article appears very biased and partisan in nature, given that Proft works with Republicans. There is a not-so-hidden agenda in this article.

what about all those town of Cicero vehicles at his golf outing today?
what about Lair-ry having 3 body guard, a security camera at home and auxiliary officers at his home?
what about his wife Liz having a body guard?
what the 3 million dollar law man Delgaldo?
what the ghost employees relatives of Lair-ry who work less than 14 hours a week?

It is a sad to hear how Mexicans are being blamed for everything. Cicero was corrupt before any Mexican was allowed to move into Cicero. As a minority Mexicans need to increase their education and take control of a town that now belongs to them.
Government and police tactics along with racism that is evident in previous entries is what keeps the people of cicero too afraid to demand change and improvment in the town. Dominick has run Cicero to the ground just like Bush has run the contries' economy into the ground.
If proft is getting paid what this article says he is. It is up to Cicero residents to demand accountability and make the necessary changes.
Dominick's days in office are few. However as history has proven over and over, another greedy shifty bastard will take over and treat residents the same.

Oh, please. It amazes me how people who haven't been in this town have such strong opinions based on fantasy.
People who live in Cicero are fed up with the actions of illegal aliens. There is no question that they have brought increased crime, gang-banging, disease, rats, etc.
The town of Cicero does not belong to ANY one racial/ethnic group, Kaitlin and it certainly does not belong to the illegals who have no business here in the first place. Cicero belongs to ALL of its citizens and Larry Dominick has bent over backward to make certain that EVERYONE feels he/she has a stake.
Your statement that Dominick has "run Cicero into the ground" is simply foolish and uninformed. Our tax receipts are the envy of many a town in Cook County. Dominick has brought large business into our town. We have beautiful new parks, schools, a movie theatre, shopping, improved infrastructure and a new town hall. In addition, the town offers free medical, dental, and mental health services to the neediest among us. Our Senior program is considered the best around.
The people of Cicero are politically savvy and active people. I'm sorry to say that you just don't get it.
And the comment about "police tactics" is an insult to those who protect us daily. Our police are WONDERFUL and do an outstanding job. It is a fully integrated police force that does an outstanding job with monthly community meetings and outreach to children in our school system.
The taxpayers and voters are PLEASED with Dan Proft. If he wasn't doing his job he wouldn't be here. Period. We are a big town with a big story to tell. Your mental picture is of a town that existed in the 1920s. Get a clue. Prohibition is over. We're dealing with gang-bangers today, not the Mob. The Mob is dead. Get a new perspective.
It's clear that you don't know ANYTHING about this town. There is an old saying that is particularly appropriate here, "It's a Cicero thing, you wouldn't understand.

As much as people don't want to believe it Cicero is 85% Latino or more. Funny how the town's elected officials don't even closely represent the demographics of the town. How can the officials even relate to their residents if they don't even speak Spanish or understand the cultures of their residents? It seems as long as the majority of residents are indifferent to Cicero politics, Cicero's "elite" will stay in power. Unfortunately, most residents do have low education levels and questionable residency status and these are two factors that keep most residents indifferent to the politics there.
