Wow... I have to thank the voters here in the village for making it to the polls and fulfilling your civic duties, no matter who you voted for. To the UNITY PARTY you may, just may have had a fighting chance if you had not run such a dirty campaign... i.e. everything from pretending to be independent to telling every tom dick and harry on the APD that they will be the next chief, lie after lie about the mayor and his trustee's. Especially the BOGUS "quinn arrested " letter that you vets soooo poorly executed. I hope the members of the UP who were opposed to the dirty tricks they tryed to pull this election were appalled and are starting to see the light and understand that we are looking to the future and that we all have the villages best interest at heart... and that is the honest truth. Many projects in the works, the village transparently see and reap the benefits in the years to come.
Just the facts-

Well I saw Becker at the board meeting last night (4-15-13). I did not notice Murphy or Petzel being there. If they were really interested in Alsip they would have attended the meetings last summer when Quinn tried to take over the Village with that little stunt him and Dalzell pulled. Just goes to show you who is in who's pocket...

I wholeheartedly agree with you. Mayor Kitching is not a vindictive political guy at all hes only a man who truly cares about the future of the place he has called home his ENTIRE life. I distinctly remember a perfect example of this from his 1st election 2005... Vince Cullen Director of Public Works... his wife was running to everyone she knows in the village saying if Kitching wins her husband will be out of a job and they will be in financial distress... election day 2005... Vince Cullen passing Unity Party Propaganda at Worth Township on 116 and Pulaski openly making fun of Patrick Kitching right to his sons face who was there passing palm cards on his father and the action partys behalf heby calmly endured arrogant and rude rants from Vince and his other UP cohorts... Fast foward to April 2013... Director of Alsip Public Works Vince Cullen. Mayor Kitching could have had him removed many times yet has not because Vince is competent and does his job. When it comes to Mayor Kitching it truly is only business and not politics. He has proven that many times over and i wish him and his party nothing but the best.
Where do you get your information? I happen to know the Cullens very well and Vince's wife does not get involved in the politics in this Village. If you go to the Board Meetings you know how ugly it gets and no matter what you do, rumors get started. It's a complete lie that she was out campaigning. The Cullens have always shown loyalty to whoever is in office. Vince has made it clear over the past 27 years that he is not a politician, he is the Public Works Commissioner and works for the people of Alsip. He has always supported his boss. Having "survived" numerous elections over two decades, it's best to just stay neutral in public but make it count in the voting booth.

Sorry Neighbor,
That was not the case in '05. Vince never had to campaign before because there was NEVER any serious competition... except McG in '01 but anyone with a clue knows what happened there .... Village of Alsip out nearly a million cause of that UP bull$hit. I dont listen to campaign wispers or boardroom bologna... Vince and his wife campaigned hard for the UP in '05 and he sure as $hit was @ Worth Township passing Unity Party palm cards election day. Hes just very LUCKY
(insert Unity Party shamrock here) Kitching and the AP are about business and not bull$hit grudges

Dear Misinformed:
You are full of shit about his wife. Never campaigned for anyone. Wouldn't want to be in a department head spot. What would you do if you worked for a Village and your boss was the Mayor? If you campaign for your boss and he loses, you're out of a job. If you campaign for the opposition, you're out of a job. If you stay neutral, you're in the doghouse with your boss. You're screwed either way. Tough spot to be in. Impossible to make anyone happy and your paycheck depends on it. If you judge Vince for his job performance I think you'd find him to be doing a very good one and that's what he's paid to do -- not compaign and risk it all.

Oh yes she/you did. Crying all over town worried about Vinces job. Also Vince was unequivocally with out a doubt actively campaigning hard for Andrews... Why do you keep denying this? Its a known fact I saw it with my own 2 eyes Mrs. Cullen, so put a effing sock in it already.

"If you campaign for your boss, and he loses your out of a job" You just proved yourself you be a complete air head. Vince still has his job and did indeed campaign for the 1st and only boss he has known in the Village... until 2005... your point is moot and worthless. Nit wit.

I was asked not to respond and I should have listened. There is no reasoning with people like you who always think they are right. You proved yourself a close-minded rumor starter when you decided to disrespect a family who wasn't even running for public office eight years after the fact. Shame on you. Goodbye.
