They won't talk about what he has DONE and who his staff IS because they know he's done NOTHING GOOD and his supporters are either VENOMOUS CLOWNS who have already burned bridges in Melrose Park or they're EMBARRASSED to be associated with Jesse Martinez (and are just taking a flyer out on him incase a miracle happens and he wins).

Jesse - Tell us about what you did as a trustee in Stone Park. Seriously give us SOME sort of accomplishment from your time there.
Jesse - Tell us why Mike Manzo, Ben Mazulla, Juan Ochoa, and Tony Peraica don't want to appear connected to you at all (because they're embarrassed of you and know you'll lose). Oh and why would we ever want Mike Manzo having any connection to Melrose Park again?
Jesse - Tell us why no one from your original group of trustees is running with you again 4 years later.
Jesse - Tell us how you got your government job, and why you got suspended from it. You are the one raising concerns about unqualified people being in employed by Melrose Park, so please tell us about the details to YOUR job.

These aren't bullying questions. This is called vetting the challenging candidate's background. Any bum off of the street can start rattling off ideas. No one listens to that bum because, well, he's a bum and not worth our time. So before we'll think about listening to your ideas, you need to listen to our questions. And answer them.

Do you honestly think a candidate for mayor is going to come on the blog full of ignorant racist people. I think if you want to ask him those questions why don't you just go to his campaign office I heard it was on 19th. Stop being a coward and coming on this blog why don't you just go ask him in person.
Haha

I believe the poster was trying to ask his supporters to answer these questions. And in typical form his supporters continue NOT to, and respond with "go on down to his headquarters and talk to him."

Why don't you guys realize, until you want to discuss FACTS about Jesse, no one wants to hear IDEAS.

The truth is I can't get a sit down with the governor to talk about my ideas because I'm simply not qualified to have that meeting. And Jesse can't have a sit down with any Melrose Parker because he's simply not qualified to have that meeting.
So funny

You really want to bring up vetting a candidate?
Let's vet Serpico. Lets start with his associations with organized crime, convicted felons working in his campaign and donating money to his campaign. Lets talk about Outfit contributors to his campaign...JKS/D&P ring a bell? Lets talk about strip clubs that were allowed to exist across the street from an elementary school for over a DECADE and only when the owner fell out of favor was it forced to move. Sex shops on 15th ave that have been exposed by news outlets but are still allowed to exist (more mob connections). Adult bookstores on Lake street that children walk by every day. Three murders in 8 months involving hand guns and robbery as a motive in the middle of residential areas and not once has Serpico himself made any kind of public announcement to allay the fears of residents. Oh by the way, one of the victims was a retired melrose park police officer. The investigation was botched due to incompetence. Again where was Waldo...I mean Serpico. What about the police officers who admitted to the FBI that they were part a racketeering conspiracy tied to Scavo to get immunity from prosecution, and still are employed or never received any disciplinary action for that matter.
Serpico is fond of projecting the reality that HE runs this town until an embarrassing scandal surfaces then he has no comment or Gary Mack belches some laughable response.
I could go on and on and on .......I HAVEN'T EVEN TOUCH UPON NO BID CONTRACTS, CRONYISM, NEPOTISM, FAVORITISM, RIGGED HIRING.... so you really want to talk about vetting a candidate??????

Thomas Jefferson said,
Power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely....

Serpico has absolute power in Melrose Park....IT IS TIME FOR A CHANGE.... and don't reply with this nonsense about Jesse Martinez lacks any qualifications because before the Outfit ok'd serpico running against Taddeo, all he was, was a glorified real estate lawer with an infamous father....

Ouch this response certainly stopped Serico supporters in their tracks.

As a casual Italian observer....I have seen these mustache petes running the Western Cook suburbs for years ....and stealing from the very people that elected them for years. Its embarrassing. And I for one am tired of being lumped in with these mobbed up politicians.These corrupt politicians are NOT representative of good hard working and honest Italian people.

At the same time I am amazed that the hispanics and african americans can't find a single candidate with solid credentials, a good education, a public speaker, a person that only cares about the community.....to represent them!

So once again we have a mustache pete v. an incompetent moron who represents the hispanics. Its the better of two evils and its just plain sad.

Pasqualle with guard in front of his house making 120K and faking like he is a cop?!?!? Serpico using MP like its his personal piggy bank and on and on.....bring in the feds and clean house!

I stand corrected. We thought Serpico was the absolute ruler in this town. Until Mioke Madigan ordered Serpico to stab Skip Saviano, a close personal and political ally in the back, and support that hillbilly republican from Addison, Willis. All because of a Madigan vendetta against Saviano. So if I could make an analogy:
Madigan is Caesar, ruling the empire that is Illinois and Serpico is his Pontius Pilate, a mere governor of a tiny province within that empire.

So I guess you can throw in Disloyal and a puppet to the "vetting" process to characterize Serpico.

Agreed. Serpico is corrupt. A selfish bum that ruined MP.But the problem is that Jesse is a moron who is also selfish.

Can someone intelligent step up and run for office? Someone honest that will clean house and only do what best for the entire community.

give hime a chance....you might be surprised....that's what the electoral process is all about....not always picking the perfect candidate...but the best of the two...i believe the choice is clear...if jese doesn't deliver, vote him out. but to continue to allow a corrupt tyrant to rule who has proven that he is in it to enrich himself and a dwindling power base for 16 years is unfair to the village and is why Melrose Park is a joke when it comes to credible government.....

Looks like Mike Manzo found this board. I can smell Mike Manzo from miles away. Always talking conspiracy, mafia, spraying vulgarity, and still bitter from losing 12 years ago. Mike, stay out of Melrose!

his black Friend is pretty cute but that's just my opinion.in response i would have to take the better of two evils.take a corrupt intelligent lawyer against a stupid clueless Mexican. yep i will stick with the original problem. lets not forget what a dumb Mexican did in four years in Cicero. had to have a white guy come back in a and fix his screw ups.oh didn't the Mexican have half his family on the payroll in Cicero also. just cant believe the opposition would do anything different except screw up the original problems by starting new ones. cant see firing all original staff to bring in clueless Mexicans to do the same job. you would replace an idiot with a bigger idiot.again fine with your original problems that don't really affect me. don't blame taxes on me because they are pretty cheap compared to other towns. you want we to worry about the town being in debt when the state is in worse shape x 100 financially and the country is even worse than that. please don't scare us with your political propaganda, because with that much corruption and that many people involved than im sure we would have the govt in here in a second with there 90% conviction rate. so your telling us that all these problems are going on in town and the government dosnt know and on top of that dosnt do anything about it. you really want to make people believe that. whats next Santa clause is still coming to your house.

Admitting that Serpico is corrupt does NOT help your cause. And Jesse is an idiot. Neither deserve to be dog catcher of MP.

Its time for the Feds to come in and clean house. There are many bright hard working Italians that can run a town. Lets find and promote one. Its that simple.

Serpico getting re-elected and then busted by Feds in the next year or two and then ratting everyone out does NOT help the image of Italian Americans.

A Mexican can run MP...just NOT Jesse. Hes just another Serpico only with a different heritage.
So Happy

Jesse's site is up. And I have to thank you Jesse. You did not disappoint. It is hysterical from start to finish. Well done. You left no comical stone unturned. My personal favorite is the statement that Jesse is living the "American Dream". I guess helping run a town (Stone Park) into the ground, wasting taxpayers money at a government job that you don't do anything at, walking around town like a hobo creeping people out all hours of the day, and losing local government elections, is the American Dream these days. It seems America's Dream isn't as ambitious as it use to be.
