Mayor Lewis Towers is smarter than those 5 nuts put together. Someone should put a sock in their mouths. June 14, 2011 Village Hall Mtg was a straight joke. Every thing the Mayor they told him we are going to over throw it call the role. These 5 nuts are out of control. I'm bringing my cage and I was a visitor. I'm bringing some pop corn to. One kept running up and down from her seat. The New Progress Party would have never done that. Can't wait for 2 years.

Did you see when all 5 of them lead by Rosie Wms got up and walked out so there was no quorum and stopped the mtg so Mayor Towers could not finish his mtg. Wild wild west have nothing on Sauk Village. I thought they were moving forward. That was 50 feet backwards. So much for love and harmony. It was almost 4 fights broke out smh. These are grown ppl.

The Village is finally being turned in the right direction. If you don't like it to bad. Move with the new direction.

I'd laugh outloud here, but that would be rude. As far as Towers being smarter than the 5 put together, why is it that Towers wanted to hire a group of 5 to 10 youths from Bloom Township for summer jobs, but had nothing for them to do, and nobody appointed to supervise them - since in all his wisdom, he fired most of the Village employees even though he said he wouldn't fire anybody from the Village that would cut essential services.

Oh yea - that's some fine Mayoral skills he has there. Everyone is beginning to see just how smart he really is - In my opinion, he couldn't count his own balls and get the same number twice !

The New Progress Party was just as smart as Towers ! That's why they sent out Political mailers RIDDLED with misspelled words, and the BEST what when they claimed to be "DEMOCRATES" !

Running for office and claiming to be affiliated with the Democratic Party, shouldn't they at least be able to spell DEMOCRATS correctly on Political flyers and information?

Can't fix stupid !! So why would you make statements that they would do or not do ANYTHING. One thing they should have done is learn how to use a spell checker.

One thing a successful administrator does his control his meeting. Firstly you have to bring g an agenda that is relevant to the meeting. Secondly, when you have people working for you, you should know something about your job. Lastly, an administrator surrounds himself with knowledgeable people. This would curb the "foolishness" as you call it. So far, the mayor has failed all three of these requirements. And if you agree with his incompetency, then you have failed as a taxpaying citizen!!! You've heard the saying..."YOU CAN'T FIX STUPID"!!!!

If Towers brought in the president there would be something said negative. Everything he does is put under a microscope because you are just jealous he is the mayor. In 2 years he will be elected again as mayor. There will be 5 seats up for re-election and they will all be replaced and gone forever except Trustee Benson and the Mayor and maybe Trustee Myers. He is the best Trustee and he does his job. My My what will Sauk Village Trustee look like in 2 years. Won't you be surprised. Can not wait.

Parks and Recs should be called Parks A Wreck. There are still NO all inclusive programs for boys and girls, citizens are still taking their child out of SV for summer activities. So the community center is not open daily and school is out. So much for hitting the ground running. ROTFLABO...yea right give it back to Benson at least everyone was welcome.

I would sure like to know how we have moved forward since the election. Since you are so anti Mayer Towers and all con for our new trustees please explain how being disrespectful as an elected official pass's you with no mention? These no class board meetings are an embarrassment to the Village. God help us if these trustees are the best we can get in Sauk Village to be our leaders. The majority of trustees seem to only care about the power they have or driving the Mayor crazy. That just doesn't help us at all. Also, I really don't think any of the employees that had to be let go would work for free, so who do you suggest pay them? You can LOL we are used to you being rude. Just more Village class.

So are all 12 of Towers's supporters here yet? And Benson couldn't fix a cup of coffee correctly, let alone run Parks and Recs. Wasn't Benson censured recently because he was accusing the Police of breaking in residents homes? For thouse of you that were not apprised of that, Benson did indeed receive a censure by the Village board for his accusations which were baseless, stating the Sauk Village Police were committing residential burglaries themselves.

What kind of Mayor blacklists a business in his own town ? Towers, thats who!

What kind of Mayor doesn't show up to support his own Village Pancake Breakfast sponsored by his own Volunteer Fire Department, but Lynwood Mayor Eugene Williams Shows up to it. Towers, that's who !

What kind of Mayor daily breaks the law, by driving a vehicle registered in Illinois without a front license plate, even though Illinois Vehicle Code states a front license plate must be displayed? Towers, that's who !

And as far as the next election? Don't count chickens before they hatch. The New Progress Party did, and we saw how badly they were beaten at the polls. Towers fate awaits him and only a short time away.

So I am hearing that the Mayor is attempting to appoint someone with the name "Shaw" as the police chief?!?!?!?!!! Please Lord tell me this is not true. Everyone needs to look up the political names of "Shaw" and see how corrupt they are!!
What is wrong with the acting chief Holevis????

MAN you are crazy! What kind of crack you been smokin? Towers is downright dumb, the NPP were all uneducated only one with education Francine got all sucked into the black power of Towers. Come on man. Now Towers wants to put someone in over Chief Holevis just because he's black. It's not the same Shaw from politics that's wrong informtion there. These people who are supporting Towers and Benson are either stupid or think that they're going to save the black people from something. Come on man you can't be all that stupid. If you like Harvey and want lake michigan water you better move back there. This is Sauk Village and it's racially diverse so either get use to it and work with the white folks or get. But stop making the black people look stupid

Seeing that the New Progress Party lost trustee seats recently, Mayor Lewis Towers and Trustee Benson are quite delusional if they, or their supporters (like those on this board), believe they stand a chance politically. Because of their actions, Mayor Lewis Towers and Trustee Benson have continued to stir up the anger from the people of Sauk Village. Politics 101 - One pissed off person will tell ten other people.

I spoke to a friend, who has lived in the village all his life, about this topic. He said that, "it was about time Sauk Village hired black people." I thought it was about qualifications not reverse discrimination? In case you haven't seen the latest census info, whites are becoming a minority ( http://southtownstar.suntimes.com/news/613737... ).

A logical argument states that those not qualified for a position should not occupy that position. A racist argument places unqualified individuals in a position to which they are not qualified, based on race not merit. I believe Mayor Lewis Towers was elected based on his race and it has cost the city dearly. Those that have realized this error are attempting to correct it.

Let's put qualified individuals in place of Mayor Lewis Towers and Trustee Benson - regardless of race.

Can you give any references as to why Sauk Village is so great? There used to be a wonderful woman who ran the community center and influenced children positively, they got rid of her. There used to be schools there (now we are going back 20 years), that cared about the education of children and not a paycheck for the teachers. There used to be programs from the kids to participate in with the police and fire departments, not anymore. There were never bars on store windows, rarely did you ever see graffitti on houses or garages. You could sit outside at night and not have gun fire, now, you sit outside during the day and there is gun fire. There were no kids walking in the streets with their pants hanging below their ass cheeks. There was no garbage on the streets. There were police officers who got to know the residents, not anymore, they don't have time, they are too busy trying to decrease the amount of crime. The biggest thing before was a kid trying to steal a stereo, now, you have to worry about getting shot. There are many good folks out there who still believe in the community, but it is not a community, it is a minimum security prison where the inmates have total control. The schools are very low on the state and nationals, the crime rate is up, people take pride in their yards only to have it destroyed, there are bars on windows of businesses, there is garbage in the streets, there are kids walking around with their pants hanging off their butts, there are 30-40 kids walking in the middle of the streets. When the village tries to enforce laws like curfew, walking in the streets, etc. parents scream "You be pickin on my kid cus he be black" or "You be pickin on my kid cus he be white". Parents need to look at what their kids are doing. Adults need to look at what they are doing. Adults get irrate when they get a ticket for a car sitting up on blocks in the drive, a car that is painted 4 colors with no wheels, yet they are the first to complain about the neighbors lawn being too long. People need to start taking pride in things, stop making it about race. They need to make a community effort, not just a "me" thing.People need to take responsibility for their actions and their children's. If someone said something about my kid, I never said, "did you" I asked, "why did you". SV used to be a great place to live, it was friendly, you could let your kid go outside to play without worry of gunfire, you could sit outside at night and relax, you had pride in your lawn and kids who messed with it were delt with, parents joined together, that is what community is, joining together, not fighting against police, fire, other parents. JOINING!

I am glad to see things are finally starting to head in the right direction.The mayor spoke one way when he wanted our votes and then did the opposite. Benson has an ego problem. He did nothing for our kids. Now we have a chance and can get our house in order. All we need to do is prevent the mayor from doing more damage and in two years vote him out.

Why did the People voice party promise clean water during election season> Haven't see any efforts to get clean water. No answers at board meeting, what are they hiding? Question for village voter, what measures have been taken to go in the right directions? In just a few words what has been done?
