BOBBY Has lost 2 jobs and now has his uncle pay everything for him (What a loser). I hear he has 2 DUIs as well. If you care about people then why would you put them in danger with your reckless drunk driving (More of a loser). Get this in your head bobby--- you are a loser, you can't win anything you put your mind to. Everyone knows you're getting used by Jesse. Do you feel like an idiot, Bobby? Do you? I know you're reading this. Stop walking around like you've done something with your life...loser.
Honestly, driving drunk is probably the worst offense anyone's written about on this site. It disgusts me to know that someone would get behind the wheel and put people's lives in danger. If this guy did that twice he's lucky and fortunate he didn't harm anyone, and I think he has no place in politics because he obviously doesn't care about others.

Most of this distracting "questions" you people are asking have already been answered. If you really care that much go through this forum and find them. A person should not be required to repeat himself time and time again. Especially when its the same people asking the same stupid questions about RMP candidates (and bobby who is not a candidate)

Anyway how can you people believe 3/4 of the garbage questions that are on here??? 2 DUI's really? doesnt your license get suspended forever when you have that many DUI's? last I saw Bobby was still driving around town.

I guarantee you if this bio were of an RMP trustee candidate the MVP lackeys would be ripping it to shreds for nothing but fluff. Oh he went to Melrose Schools. Where is his degree? What has he done?...nothing. But sadly it is a MVP trustee. What did he do before he became a trustee. Went to school in Melrose, raised a family, worked hard at a plant and volunteered in Melrose Park. SOUND FAMILIAR???????
The only difference was that he was plugged in the village through his father, the Chief of the fire dept.
How pathetic and hypocritical you all are.

Don't anyone be fooled by these wolves in sheep clothing. This election is about them losing their grip on Melrose Park. Nothing more. The are out of touch with what this town needs and turned a blinds eye to what they turned this town into. And now they want you to give them 4 more years by telling you they have made this town prosper! The facts don't lie. Higher taxes, huge debt, mismanagement, favoritism, nepotism, bloated govt., corruption, housing values STILL the worst in Cook County, rising crime, and a diminished quality of life in this village IS THEIR LEGACY.
And now they say RMP and Jesse Martinez are not qualified for every reason they say that Prignano (a good man by the way. There is nothing wrong with his credentials.) is qualified. I can only surmise one reason that Prignano who has the same qualifications as 3 trustees for RMP who are being raked over the coals... because they are not Italian. Once again, How pathetic and hypocritical you all are.

Tony Prignano was born and raised in Melrose Park. He is the son of Hannah and Anthony Prignano. Tony’s father, Anthony, is a retired Chief of the Melrose Park Fire Department. Tony graduated from Melrose Park School and attended Proviso Township High School.

Tony is married to another lifelong resident of Melrose Park, his wonderful wife, Josephine Salinardi Prignano. Josephine and Tony raised three children, Joseph, Anthony and Mary Jo. Today, they reserve their bragging rights for their four amazing grandchildren, Matthew, Giana, Talia and Joseph, Jr.

From 1954 to 1958, Tony served in the Army Security Agency as a Morse code interceptor operator. He rose to the rank of Specialist 2nd class and was stationed in Japan for 2 years.

Tony Prignano worked for many years at Triton College as the Associate Director of the Physical plant. He is now retired.

Throughout the years Tony enjoyed a long and diverse career as a volunteer coach at Our Lady of Mt. Carmel School. Tony coached a variety of sports there, including basketball, softball and track, he even coached a young Mayor Ron Serpico. Later, Tony became a fixture on the local baseball circuit, coaching many Melrose Park little league and colt league baseball teams.

Tony has served as a Melrose Park Village Trustee for 12 years. Not only has he served with distinction as a Trustee, he has also brought his unique brand of energy and ideas to the many other committees he has been a part of. He has continually proven himself to be a diligent and forward thinking Trustee whose confident leadership has helped make Melrose Park a better place to live.

As the elder statesman on the Village Board, Tony Prignano has made the issues that affect Melrose Park’s senior residents his priority. Tony stated,“I want to ensure that the men and women, who once bravely served their country, worked hard, obeyed laws, raised families, and made this country the greatest nation in the world are treated with respect and dignity. I have been committed to that belief since my first day serving as a Village Trustee and will continue to do so.”

As far as I can see with this one is that she married into the town. Surprise an Italian. She volunteered in River Forest and Oak Park and was appointed (NOT ELECTED)to library board. Which after reading it she sounds like she was a go-fer for Loretta Costello. Doesn't sound like she had too much faith in Melrose Park schools because she sent her kids to St. Lukes, Montini and Fenwick schools. Really giving back to the Village there Mary. Maybe she should run for office in Oak Park or River forest. She seems to be more rooted there. I also like the last tag line of making Melrose the safest in the western suburbs. Tell that to the three murder victims in the last 8 moths. I believe that beats out Bellwood, Stone Park, Franklin Park, Northlake, Hillside, and Broadview.

Can you say MVP HYPOCRITES!

Mary Ramirez Taconi is a first generation Mexican American. She was born and raised in a bustling home filled with 5 siblings and 5 foster sisters in Gary, Indiana. She is a graduate of Andrean High School and Stone School of Business in New Haven, CT.

Mary’s first job was as a showroom manager for a company located in the Chicago Merchandise Mart. Her most recent employment was with Trinity Orthopedics at West Suburban Hospital, Oak Park.

Mary has been married for 27 years to Joseph B. Taconi, Jr., a lifetime resident of Melrose Park whose grandfather founded the Asso Appenni Society. They are proudly raising 3 children in Melrose Park who are graduates of Fenwick and Montini High Schools. Their 2 daughters are recent graduates of the University of Illinois, Champaign and their son is in his 3rd year of studies at Kendall College in Chicago

For 14 years, while her children attended grammar school, Mary volunteered her time and efforts at St. Luke School, serving on the Women's Guild, School Board, chairing fund raisers, dinner dances and performing clerical services in the front office. After her children graduated from St. Lukes, Mary brought her energy and enthusiasm for volunteering to the high school arena, where she was active in the Fenwick Mother’s Club, chairing their raffle committee and serving as a class representative.

Once her children were settled in high school, Mary Ramirez Taconi was able to realize some of her own aspirations and began to vigorously pursue those interests. She served 2 terms on the Melrose Park Library Board as an appointed board member under the direction of Loretta Carlini Costello. Next, Mary focused on the Village and how she might make it an even better place to live. Mary was soon elected a Melrose Park Village Trustee, where she has served distinctively with vision and leadership for 3 terms.

Mary Ramirez Taconi looks forward to continuing her service to our Village. She stated,“I am very interested in issues that formulate policies that help protect our streets, parks and schools from the influence of drugs and gang crime. I believe the Serpico Administration, the police, and most important, the community, has made a concerted effort to make our Village one of the safest in the west suburban area.”

That makes sense! He gets 1 DUI and doesnt do community service, then gets a second one and doesnt immediately go to jail for failing to follow the courts orders from the first DUI. When did he get these DUI's????? cause if im not mistaken, RMP was passing around their nominating petitions in august or septmber. Roberto's name wasnt on those petitions. Unless jesse is a fortune teller, I dont see howyour statement is true. Cause if Roberto wouldve gotten any DUI's prior to the petitions, im sure he'd be in jail already. DUI's dont take that long to process numb nuts, especially if you supposedly failed to do community service from the first.
Last thing I heard Roberto was at the village meeting making Serpico look like a fat fucking idiot. Im sorry, just a fucking idiot, the fat was already there before Roberto made him cry.

Usually when people have solid credentials, and have good intentions, they wouldn't mind repeating great ideas or successes they've had.

In fact, I bet they would repeat it as often as possible.

The only questions that have been repeatedly asked are: what will you do to better the community? And: what credentials do you have?

So you find those to be stupid and distracting questions?

"Said it before so go look for yourself," "Jesse won't answer questions unless you go to his office and ask" - I see a theme. Apparently, you have to beg to get answers out of Jesse's campaign.

its one thing to answer a question that is asked by someone who hasnt heard the answer, its another to keep repeated yourself to idiots that don't care what you answer and will keep asking the same questions over and over to make it seem like you have a legitimate answer. Jesse will answer all your questions, you dont have to come to his office, he'll go to you personally. Im not Jesse so I dont speak for him. Thats why people should talk to him.

He will come to your house, stalk you by the metra station, have a drink w you at Cafe 2000, go to events he isn't welcomed to, attend your pets funeral JUST PLEASE LISTEN TO HIM!

He's trying so hard for people to just hear him out, and nobody will. Hell, he is even willing to campaign during working hours! Suspension from his State Job? Who cares because he wants to be YOUR MAYOR!
