There are different candidates for aldermen running in the April 2013 election in several wards.
All of the current people in office have failed the community in numerous ways and there is no good reason to keep them in office. Failure is no longer an option.

Great, the elected officials failed to maintain the bridges because they did not know who they belonged to; that is probably the same reason why the people and everything else has been over looked as well.

The politicians got paid while the municipality, taxpayers, and the public got played.

Complete Streets!
By a 13-1 vote, the City of Blue Island adopted Illinois’ FIRST Complete Streets ORDINANCE - a historic moment for our community.
•The new ordinance applies to ALL streets, in EVERY ward.
•New road improvements are required to provide facilities that make the roadway convenient for ALL users. This includes pedestrians and bicyclists, but also handicapped, the elderly, youth - as the ordinance states, accommodating all ages and abilities.
•Key routes near schools, parks, commuter stations, as well as all arterial roads have been “prioritized” by the City. The design of these streets will be assisted by the Plan Commission, providing a forum for public involvement.
WILL CITY HALL'S COMPLETE STREETS ORDINANCE GET THE BRIDGES OPEN?
Has this ordinance been over looked like so many others?

What about bridges? Does the ordinance require prioritizing bridges?

Yes it would include the bridges. But you need the right Alderman in place to push it forward. What we have now well

The city, aldermen, and council need to ensure they are in compliance with the Complete Street Ordinance.

Hart was first elected Mayor in 1937 and remained in that office until 1965.
The current mayor has been in office for about the same amount of time, 28 years.
Seriously, Don, Ken, and Robinson Engineering had to know who had possession of the bridges; what it would cost and what it would take to maintain both bridges.
Ok, the present administration and our local elected officials have been asleep at the wheel for nearly 28 years.

Her priorities are some where else. And the bridges remain closed. State Representative Robert Rita has done nothing, also.

At tonight's council meeting Aldereman Vierya voted to repave streets in other wards. But no mention on repairing the bridges in her own ward. Treasurer Biloto said nothing about repairing the bridges! Go figure.

The word in the second ward, Carmine Bilotto let us down. He had eight years to put a plan together to keep the bridges open. He had four years as city treasurer. He is more concerned about his personal wealth and buying the next foreclosed home in Blue Island. He has fooled us long enough.

A record of failed policies, ideas, and failure to take appropriate ACTION.
