As a matter of fact I do. I don't feel the need to harm my children, my self or any other innocent person. Or paying someone (ticket fee) my money by being stupid and not stopping. Haven't had a ticket in 20 yrs THANKYOU.

After reading the comments here I wonder if "why" is talking in circles. That is a shame. I live in the 1st District where Mr. Hurkes is the Trustee. Last year at Christmas he passed out FREE!! food to the senior citizens, and one lucky family was on my block so I know itís true. Does your Trustee do that?
Mr. Hurkes gathered volunteer students and Boy Scouts to help the elderly rake their leaves and clean out the gutters last month, does your trustee do that. And during the winter he personally uses a snow plow to clear the driveways for seniors that cannot shovel their driveways and sidewalks, does your trustee do that? I went to one of his local town hall meetings to learn about the new AT&T internet service that was coming to Oak Lawn last year. At least he was able to bring in people with the information for those who wanted to make a choice.
This talk about stopping at stop signs is petty little nonsense and gives no facts of substance only silly mud slinging. That does none of us any good. I watch the village meetings on cable all the time, we should all watch them and stay informed.

To the 30yr Resident you must lead a sheltered life and really do not care about your neighborhood because Mr. Hurkes does not. There are so many violations(city code and village code)that are abuused or not adheared to and this guy does nothing. I also live in the 1st district and all I can say this guy does nothing to enhance dist 1. sounds like another Blagojevich. (do nothing with out recompense) wake up and smell the coffee the jestures you mentioned are nothing but a figment of your warped imagination like his

I hope he wins. I've already said I'll do anything I can for who ever runs against the present mayor. Heilman has ruined the village. He should be ashamed of himself for letting the personal attacks by Bob Streit go on at the village and public works board meetings.
Grow up boys.

You're worried about stop signs, you should worry more about what the mayor and his pals have been doing. For example, all the new construction..... Who's looking at the plans and approving them?? Is anyone watching? Why do we need hundreds of condos and huge homes that are standing vacant. What about the monster houses that don't meet the codes but get built anyway? Ask the mayor who's living in them? Anyone he knows??

you are so right!! And what about Senior Citizens whose taxes have sky rocketed because of all the new condos and homes? Oak Lawn looks like the city with buildings crammed into each other little houses right next to hugh ones that towers over them...... what about the police who are getting fat and lazy because of the cameras at lights and so much more

The mayor wants it to look like Naperville or other suburbs with the big homes....then he should go be the mayor there. We are all being taxed out of our homes!!!

ever seen the police inside the station sitting around or the one (forget his name) he is always spitting over his head and proud he can! Just seems like since they put those red light cameras up you do not see patrol cars out very much or when the gas station on SW and Cicero got robbed it took them like 8-10 minutes to respond to the 911 call and by then the robber was gone. Oh and no I wasn't locked up I was there for my wallet that got stolen....and I know some of them personally..........it is just my opinion

Bounty, I am one. You have the report number? I can look up the times from when the call came out to when the first car on scene arrived.
