Purpose of my writing today is the bs shooting going on around my home. This needs to be taken care of immediately, as the house is by a school and my kids walk by it everyday. Blatent disregard that these little thugs show is sickening, and I have had enough!! You better believe I will be attending the next village meeting on this matter. Has anyone else had enough? My kids are the utmost importance in this matter and I am very concerned for their safety! Thanks for reading.

You must live over on/by Peoria. There have been THREE shootings there since December. Ridiculous! Those people sell drugs, is a gang hang out and they have an alligator as a pet! You mean to tell me the police can not do anything about this? Do they rent? There is a new ordianance that would allow them to be evicted. I think that is the way it would work. Yeah, I dont live far from there and I am sick of it to. Someone who has nothign to do with them is going to be the one who gets hurt. Your kids, my kids, someone innocent who is not playing thier games. They need to be stopped!

I was wondering if you would also post these posts, in the forum Steger news by residents. One of the problems with so many forums is nobody reads the others, because as you have seen Sauk Village and Chicago Hts. also post on this forum page.

When it is in the Steger forum everyone knows you are talking about things that happened IN Steger and more people will be informed. Had you not mentioned peoria St. most would not have known you were talking about Steger, but then again Chicago Hts. has a Peoria st. L:ets please try to keep Steger news in the Steger forum. Just a suggestion. Lets hear what others think.

That is not the only solution!

April 7th.. Vote for CHANGE

Lou Sherman and his cronnies are the ones who have allowed this to esculate. Vote him out! He does not even think Steger has a gang problem. He said so himself at an assembly at Bloom Trail. You know how many gangbangers were probably sitting right there laughing at him...

Oh you can believe I will be at the voting, and at the next board meeting. Honestly I can't just pick up and move at a loss. In this economy the house won't even sell, and I cant afford to mortgages. Something needs to be done! Does anyone know when the next board meeting takes place? If so please let me know.
Thanks

I live right don't the street from there and I CAN'T in good conscience let my kids walk a block to go play with their friends who live right near "that house on Peoria" it's awful. I can't tell you how many times I myself have been walking by there during my nightly walk...only to hear some punk say something completely unwarranted. It's ridiculous....and I think going to a meeting is a GREAT start! I'll be there too. Something needs to be done.

As far as Lou Sherman goes. It's time for a change...no doubt about that. But I also think that we as residents need to show these gangbanging jerks that we won't tolerate it. In saying that, I cartainly don't mean we should take it into our own hands...but if enough of us get fed up, and we all put our heads together I'm sure we can use the laws in place to rectify the situation.

The present Chief Stultz will remain as the Chief as long as Mayor Sherman is the mayor. Your vote in the next election will eliminat him and trustee fajman who is his daily golf partner in the summer. I remember when Fajman was known as LAZY FAJMAN on the police Dept. He was a waste of money then and now. Do you ever read about arrest that his son has done as a detective on the Police Department or are their no arrest with shootings that have occured lately. make your vote count.VOTE SHERMANS TICKET OUT

I agree,(Stultz/Sherman) but am very concerned as to who will be next in line, as Chief. And if it is the "next in line" then there will be absolutely NO CHANGE.

An analogy: "Different tent...Same CIRCUS."

Maybe worse.

I know a few officers on the department who are excellent. However, the department needs a major shake up. I do not see that with Bob as he will bring his brother over from SCH to be chief and Lou will keep Schultz. Miranda would be a good vote if the citizens of Steger wanted change that is new.

Bob Joyce does not have a brother in SCH. Please don't spread untruths as it gets us no closer to choosing the best leadership for our village

perhaps they heard the story wrong. i do recall from ernie's last election that there were rumors that ernie's brother was going to come in as chief it prosteger won. i know several people were upset about that. not sure if it was true or not.

Is this true? I am very upset as, now, I do not know WHAT to believe or WHO to believe from either party. I think people want to be informed, and NOT AFTER THE FACT. I need to make an intelliigent decision and CANNOT honestly make one, if I do not have the information I need to MAKE IT!!!!

PS. As for me and other neighbors I've talked to, if we do not get answers and info, we are NOT voting at all!

Miranda as Mayor, is getting to look better and better!!! Maybe we do need someone totally different!

I wish someone would have the courage to speak up.

I'm sure anyone can call either The United Party of Steger, or Mirandas Hq and both will answer any questions anyone may have. Links to their web sites below and their phone numbers are on the sites or you can send an email from their site.
All of the candidates are not using this site, well almost all.
