SO why aren't all those press releases mentioning Manager Sheahan, and why isn't the name painted on the village vehicles Sheahan instead of Getty. Nice try, though.

Welcome to Lyons! TLC has been disbanded since 2010. Not involved at all anymore. Two parties this election: the ones in power now and a new party, Village Independent Party. The new party is the way I'm going.
The new party is TLC / MVP just a new name. Same faces. Wisneski was on the board for 8 years or more. Directions from Close, Visk ,
Burell, Witherow. TLC people MVP people get signatures for the party. Keep your eyes open and you will see and hear alot. Krueger votes with Wisneski same people. She was TLC and MVP last election.
Thank you

Village manager when he was in office.

Never Forget, you seem to have forgotten that in the last municipal election - that would have been 2011 - there NO TLC candidates running. You can check out prior election results at the Cook County Clerk's website any time you want.

BTW, state Reps. McSweeney & Frank have introduced a bill (HB 983) aimed at curtailing the most blatant abuses associated with alternate revenue bonds.

Manager Form of Government. Not Mayor Form
And so why does he insist on being caller "Mayor Getty" instead of the legally correct title "President Getty"? Could it be related to ego?

He can be called Mayor or President, according to statutes.
And this old issue was resolved when former attorney stated that
either or is allowed. If you had attended the meetings you would
have the attorney clarify that trivial issue once and for all.

According to the Statutes, we have a President and Board form of governbment in Lyons; his official title is "Village President". The Mayor/Aldermanic form is used in other communities, but not here. The use of the title "Mayor" for presidents is more just an accepted practice, but legally incorrect. I DID read the statutes, did you?

Quote the statute and then when you find it..call the former attorney and ask him. I did it at a Village meeting..the one that
you did not attend. Apparently, you talk the talk, but can't walk the walk.

So, how about you showing us anywhere in our OWN village code the tern "Mayor" is used? I am "walking the walk" - now its your turn. Just cite the section where the Village code even once uses the term "Mayor". I find Chapter 6 referring to a village president, but can't find a single reference to a "mayor".

And while your at is, can you provide the references to the need to have a full time IT person to be required to maintain the village web site. Once again, you can only run your mouth, but not provide answer.

I have done my part for our village over the years - a lot more than you know. Why, for just once in your life, try telling the truth. I may be a jerk, but I am not the son of someone who tried to steal hundreds of thousands from the people, and then lies about it. And I will not stop asking questions - just because you never provide answers.

MY antics? Like being able to back up what I say? You asked me to back up my claim - I cited our own Village Code. You sound like the kid who if they were losing would take their ball and go home. How come when you are challenged to back up YOUR statements you make remarks about the other person, but never actually give an answer. You must either be Chris or must follow his pattern.
