staying around

He will be staying around. FOR A LONG TIME. Listen. Watch politics closely. People dont really care about what is going on in town. They are so rushed by just living life. Going here, going there, etc. They hear politicians names like Baldermann over and over and over throughout town and through that repetition, comes name awareness. Then in the ballot box, they see the name, associate with name recognition and Boom, we have another incumbant year at the polls. It isnt rocket science. I am not saying I agree with it, just telling you how the incumbants continue to win. Think about the issues on the school board. WE continually hear about Sue Smith, Maureen, Sue Gilooly, They will win again. Think about it. How do they continually win? Ask most people and even if they are not well liked. NAME RECOGNITION.

I don't agree. I think people moreso now than ever are paying much more attention to the political fallout affecting our community. I do NOT think incumbents on that school board will be re-elected. I believe their names are synonomous with backroom deals, nepotism, fiscal irresponsibility, etc. THAT is the name recognition they've earned. I believe our mayor's political antics are synonomous with pension exploitation, backroom deals, nepotism, etc. If the people want better lives for themselves, their families and children, they have to start voting for better public servants. And I think they will.

Get them all out and keep them out. We need term limits, serious pension reform, and no double dipping.
And what about their war chests? I'd love to retire with some of them!

Go to Tim's Facebook page and see the pictures of him playing flag football. You may have to be friends with someone who is friends with him already though to see them. Seems ok to play football. WTF

Way funny... I hear Tim attended the Republican Steak Fry fund raiser Sunday. No one sent him an invitation. I guess he see's the wind shifting so he wants to become Republican again. No integrety.

Google "padding pensions Baldermann" and you should be able to retrieve a good article about him from the Chicago Tribune.
