Where's Alberto Culver, International Harvester, Benjamin Moore Paint, Kiddieland? 119 brand new alleys? guess who paid for that? Ill build you an entire addition to your home...just also give me your checkbook. Beatification of Broadway and Lake? Thats beautiful to you? What happened to the lake street corridor project?
Didn't we waste a couple hundred thousand dollars resurfacing the field with synthetic turf, right after it was first built?
5 guys is awesome.
You know how Melrose figured out a way to actually "bring business" into town? TIF's and massive borrowing.
Speaking of massive borrowing, I noticed on the RMP website the Cook County treasurer's report on Local Government debt. Melrose pensions only 32% funded. I guess Serpico saw some extra cash lying around and decided to put it to use. Maybe thats how he paid for the Division street uselessnessifictation project?
I'd be pretty upset if i was a village worker. Not only are they being forced to campaign for MVP, but Money is literally being taken out of their pockets.
But you are right, Great job Melrose!
Yep, it's Serpico's fault that a privately owned company, Kiddieland didn't change with the times and bring enough customers inside its gates to stay in business. That's all Serpico's fault. Riiiiiight.

Also, Serpico had nothing to do with bringing in Costco to fill the vacancy left by Kiddieland. A store that does much more business, and employs more full-time workers year-round then Kiddieland. Not to mention makes more sales than Kiddieland, which provide more tax dollars to the local community. But, yea, lets not give Serpico any credit for that.

Yea, I guess it's a BAD idea to resurface our alleys. It's probably a much better idea to leave them looking like we live in the hood. With housing prices dropping across the country, its probably not a good idea to do things that bring up property value in Melrose Park. I mean who wants that?

And yea, it's probably a bad idea to turn the civic center field synthetic. I mean it would be much smarter to leave it grass so that we (the taxpayers) have to pay significant maintenance fees on it every year, so that the town can actually use it enough to do positive things.

I only hope you're intelligent enough to detect the sarcasm in my reply to your arguments. Although I fear you are not. Because based on your "ideas" about why those specific things I just listed are bad ideas, I feel you must be pathetically unintelligent. You have no vision. We are all dumber for having to listen to your ideas. You do not pass go. You do not collect $200. And may god have mercy on your soul.

Wow! You make an intelligent response about the corrupt,incompetent Serpico and his gang of Mustache Petes are all crickets. That says it all.

Serpico is a bloated, corrupt, pig. A puppet to his corrupt masters. He always has been.

Jesse Martinez is also a bad joke. But he is the lesser of two evils at this time.Will Jesse ruin MP? How can he? Serpico has already made MP the biggest garbage can in West Cook Suburbs.

Some smart young leader needs to step up and run for this office.

And know this....I am a white/Italian heritage local and I am embarrassed by Serpico and the Chief of Police.

Haha, this is classic. I love when Jesse's gang thinks their smart and rattles off "ideas" about mistakes Serpico has made. And then when someone points out that they were actually the right decision, and Jesse's gangs eyes open to "big boy" world and not their little secluded "dream world" they get all quiet. Jesse's gang - you are the children at the table. Look, we all appreciate your ambition, to a certain extent, but your blindly naive, and you really need to stop.

Here's your best gameplan going forward - continue to make false accusations about Serpico and his staff and supporters. Because when you bring up Jesse's "dream world" ideas or talking points, you sound like morons after they're refuted with actual logic. When you poke holes into Serpico's decisions on Melrose Park, you sound like morons when you're refuted with actual logic. So please, continue to make false (criminal) accusations about Serpico, his staff, and his supporters. This way, after you're thrown in jail for slander and libel, we won't have to listen to you at all anymore. Thank you, and goodnight.

When the streets of Melrose Park were clean and we didn't have to worry about reform because there were no Mexicans or African Americans!
