Sounds as if the FBI should be looking Dolton, Counrty Club Hills like they did Harvey. Not to mention good ol' Blogo.
And just for the record I've lived in the south burbs my whole life.

The feds need to look at any town/community that has corruption! It's just not prevelant in the areas of Dolton, Country Club Hills nor Harvey! They will have a lot to find in Orland/Tinely/Mokena and Peotone too...for that freakin' matter!

What exactly have the Republicans done? Look at the present state of this country and economy? Good job Republicans! For the record Dolton was in the Red well before Shaw even took office. Two mayors had preceded in death before Shaw...and financially, the community was heading in a downward spiral and residents....weren't even aware of it. The books were hidden very well!
So many things people don't know! However, they're too racist to look at the facts!

The town is messed up. They kicked my wheelchair basketball team out of the gym because my coach is running for Park Commissioner. Now I do not have a place to practice. He just would like to help the community in which he lives. Dirty Politics WOW!!!

Why the Village spent 10 million dollars on the dorchester? Streets need to be repair, so we can not have another 4 years of Shaw policy!!!!!!!!!

Were did you get the dollar amount? I would like to see that for myself. I guess the elderly need to live in an up to date, clean, operable facility. Their loved ones don't take care of them. Therefore, they need to live in a good facility with caring attendants that are taking care of them.

Please don't believe that crap! Rod...is a pot stirrer! A classic (BMW) Bitch/Whinner/Moaner! Fox, didn't beat him up on the street! Please don't claim things...unless you've seen it for yourself. Rod has had his head inbetween his behind, smelling himself for quite a while! He doesn't respect nor adhere to authority and over steps his boundaries as a Public Works staffer. Instead of acting in a professional manner, and appreciate the well-paying job he received and village car; with a highschool education, he yells/screams at authority figures! When they don't allow him to get away with it, he behaves like a scorned broad....lying, scheming to get sympathy/empathy from others! Rod came at another DP, employee yelling/screaming and got reprimanded! He's good at acting a fool! He needs to be better at being an employee! He needs to be terminated with his insubordination. Then he can see what a highschool education will get him in this present job-market/economy!
