R Vill - Hassert will not be running for mayor. He went on the WJOL radio and cleared that rumor up on Thursday morning. Stop passing around baseless rumors.

DUH! that's the kind of ignorant vote that got her elected. She is a STATE Representative. Just in case you need to know that means she will be in the state capital of Springfield, Illinois.

I will miss him.

Let's see if Emily can do what she promises and if she's any good at reaching out and asking the PEOPLE of her DISTRICT what THEY want like Hassert did all the time.

Brent Hassert has done a wonderful job as a State Rep. He will be missed. I do not feel that his sucessor will be able to fill his boots as well as he did. Brent, You will be missed by many and if you do decide to run for mayor of Romeoville you will ahve my vote.

I'm sad to see Hassert go. Emily's dad does not have integrity in his law business dealings and I fear she will be influenced by his god ole boys club ways.

Hassert is a pig. I look forward to the investigations. Hopefully he will go to prison for a long time like his buddy George Ryan. No more protection from state legislative buddies, just like when Ryan got out his protection was gone. It will be a great day when he is sent to Prison.

You have room to talk on getting a life I'm sure. The fact of the matter is Hassert was a crook and so were his cronies. Now he's gone, and so they shall follow. Whatever idiot ran his campaign is who lost it for him. All negative lies and he loses. He deserved to lose. If you can't run a positive campaign on your record you deserve to lose.

Interesting how you have an icon obsession much in the same way that FL does.
