The online records show numerous appearances made by John Argoudelis at Village meetings representing developers.

One can come to his own conclusion as to if it was not in the best interest of residents.

The question is, Do You vote for him or not?

It is certainly worth the time to check them all out.

so, Argoudelis is using his current position in Plainfield Township to help developers in ways they could not be helped if he was not both an elected official and a layer.
Does not sound right to me. As an elected official he should not be working with developers who are also contributing to his campaign.

I will not vote for John Argoudelis for the County board spot until he comes clean with conflict of interest questions.

Hey, come on now...Supervisor Johnny A has to be top notch, he has Trustee Garret Peck running his campaign.
It doesn’t getting any better.
And we all know those two have to be top notch and above the board!!
No conflict here.

Township Supervisor has NOTHING to do with development. Do your homework before you throw stones.

Township does the senior bus, houses the food pantry, and provides general assistance to individuals who fall on hard times. Nothing to do with development. That would be the village board/city council.

If Reilly is dumb enough to fall into what you call Peck's minefield, then he has no business running for office.

There are a lot smarter and more manipulative people than peck out there.

Peck is just a small piece of the puzzle. Imagine what a veteran lobbyist would do to Reilly. He would be toast.

So whar are our choices?

vote for three

1) John Argoudelis- Conspiracy theory about development

2) Lee Goodson- shares a home with a Springfield lobbyist and gets $ from vendors of the county

3) Brian Smith- Nobody knows anything about. Who the heck is he?

4) Tim Reilly Arrested by Joliet Police- can;t keep his cool- opens a hotdog stand next to portillos and goes out of business

5) Judy Mcdermott- Lots of signs- no public appearances or platform. Who the heck is she?

6) Mike Hillard- Left wing socialist- at the 2009 meet the candidate's night he criticized the township for paying off their mortgage and said they should have given away 100's of thousands of dollars in free groceries to residnets instead.

Slim pickins?

I am writing in Liz Collins. She would have been a great Independent choice despite her big real estate deals and involvement.

So, from what you typed...we have no real good choices.
Just about what we have had in past local elections.
One of these days...maybe...someone will stand up for the people instead of for themselves.
But, I guess this is just a pipe dream.
I know some politician who need to quit worrying about kissing babies to get elected and start kissing...
I will leave this "as is' and stop now.

Sounds like Tim Reilly walked right into an Old Chicago Political Trap, set-up by this Garrett Peck! Does anyone really think Peck had a Taste for Cemeno's Pizza at the same time the Plainfield Dems were in the next room? If You Do, I heard Reilly will be Giving-Away Free Babe's HotDogs!
Give Judy McDermott your vote!
I know her, and your vote be Wasted!
She and her husband are NOT Tied to Anyone, or Anything!
Her and her husband have worked hard for their local Homeowner's Assoc.,Schools,Parks, especially for the kids. I was at the Plainfield St. Patrick's Parade and she had 40-40 people with her marching. Mostly Young Families and alot of kids.
I even seen Republican Sheriff Paul Kaupas Shake Her Hand, as she was beside Democratic Sheriff Candidate Pete Piazza! Now That's What Will County Needs-Instead of all this Crap Being Stirred-Up!!!
Just My 2 Cents from Way Far Away!

I think this country has some big issues, good folks just don't want the hassle.

We are stuck with the crooks.

Or we can begin to throw out the incumbents and put in the fresh, and come re-election if they haven't performed, out they go in with the new.

I've heard some say that will really screw things up, if we fill the seats with inexperience.

Really now, we can't get too much worse.

I just can't vote for John!!

Nor can I!

He should have fought the Village with Township money over the berm. Naperville has fought Plainfield on many issues; they don't guide the locals to spend their own money.

John is a wolf in sheep’s clothing on the berm issue!

hey henry- you are clueless! The Township has no legal jurisdiction and could not. Thankfully a property owner filed their own lawsuit and has put a stop to the berm.

Find something else to attack John with.

Do we really want to elect someone who supports Michael Madigan's Chicago politics?
Are you ready for someone that is not looking out for you best interest?
If you said "No" then do your civic duty and DON'T vote Judy McDermott for District 5 County Board.
