Stop with the tutoring. Where did you get your degree? OOPS, forgot you don't have one.
Sean: Back to the the drawing board old friend. Google is not the be all end all. See if you can follow me here. Take your two hands, you have a left one and a right one (they are attached to your shoulders), place them over your ears, right hand to right ear, left hand to left ear. Still with me pal??? Now concentrate hard, that thing you are holding between your hands, most people commonly refer to as your head, inside that head is your brain.(Yeah, I know, it is quite a bit higher up on your body than you previously thought).Again, Inside that head is your brain. Think of it as your own "On Board Google Device" reread the previous post and reponse you are responding to, try and focus on reading and comprehension (which at least reading, according to you, you have already mastered),so now we can focus on comphrehending, meaning and context. Control your urge to fall back on google, I believe in you Sean, the elevator will rise to the top floor and the doors will suddenly open. Al the best, Sean!!!

stop with the oops thing...so, so corny.
You're finally giving credit to the Mayor for building relationships ..exactly what a Mayor should be doing..
wondering too: No wondering too, I am not giving our Village President (Gosh Darn-it wondering too, I did it again) our esteemed self proclaimed Village "Mayor" credit for "Building Relationships", I am just repeating what he "Himself" told us in the Desplaines Valley News a couple of issues ago. Have you noticed his new found budding relationship with the DesPlaines Valley News??? Have you noticed and listened to him tell us all how he is reaching out and "Building Relationships" with neighboring politicians, all under the guise of promoting the Village Of Lyons??? Well I have news for you wondering too, he's "Building Relationships" all right, but not for your benefit or mine,(well maybe yours), and certainly not for the benefit of the people of the Village of Lyons. Before all of this "Relationship Building", destroys our fair Village, and we are on the brink right now, why don't we vote this current group of "Relationship Builders" out of office and set an example for the rest of this fine State of Illinois. Let's put in the Village Independent Party of Wisneski, Mendlik, Gatz, Graunke, Johnson. Let's demand that they actually install an open and transparent government, while "Building Relationships" with the Village of Lyons Taxpayers, Employees, Local Busnesses,etc. Let them perform an initial Audit of all Village Finances and TIF Finances upon taking Office. Upon completion of that Audit, hold an open and transparent meeting for all Village of Lyons Residents, and present the actual State Of our Village Finances. Let us all know, where do we stand today, and how will we navigate the road ahead of us to get to where we need to be tomorrow. Invite the Suburban Life, The Chicago Tribune, The Sun-Times, and the Landmark Newspaper to attend, observe and report. Now wondering too, wouldn't that be a refreshing change of pace, The Village of Lyons Government, performing their "Fiduciary Responsibilities" for the Village of Lyons Residents!!!!!

Sean: What no google reference to back up all your profound and deep thoughts??? I see you are now refering to your right and left hands, did I confuse you when we last talked??? After you have perfected comprehension, context and meaning, then we can try and tackle multi-tasking. Don't try to perform to much to quickly. It may take awhile to get your "On-Board Google Device" functioning in a coherent manner.Keep plugging away pal. We are all rooting for you!!!

Lady A: Whay exactly is your issue with us "older people? Could it be that we actually have lived and recall the older history of our fair Village and can actually sit down with our neighbors, friends and children and verbalize our recollections of these events? Since you brought it up, wondering why us "older people" have an issue with our Village Presidents Father, the fact is the man is a convicted felon. Not just any old convicted felon, but convicted of crimes perpetrated while holding the same Office as our illustrious leader does now. Of course, the elder was Mayor of the Village at that time, which of course our esteemed leader claims he is also Mayor, seconded by his white collar patronage lawyers, that we pay to give him such ground breaking advice. Yes Lady A, us "older people" can actually recall and pass these events on to the younger generation, showing them how if we are not careful, history can and will repeat itself. My what a novel concept, passing along history without relying on Google or Facebook for this Knowledge!! OMG!!! I have another bit of groundbrakeing news for you Lady A, us "older people" actually like to go out and let our hair down every now and then!! We actually date, spend time with significant others, and yes we may even have an occasional one night stand, can you believe us "older people" Lady A!!!! And, are you sitting down for this visual, every once in a while we may even get under the covers and give you " younger people" a run for your money in that facet of life. LOL Lady A!!!!
Please dont give her any more attention, yes we are old but not dead!

I wish PattiK was on the ballot again, sadly the VIP don't have a chance for the president without her at the top of the ticket. First PattieW picks a former male stripper as a clerk candidate and a trustee candidate who owns a strip club in McCook. Once they leave her she replaces them with people who have done zero for this town and never speak up at VIllage Board meetings. I have never seen these people on the Channel 6.

PattiK please run as a Write-In. Poor Dick Gatz and Mr. Graunke are doing all of the work for her. I have seen them in my neighborhood the past two days and even gave me a VIP sign for my window. I drive past your house today and you don't have nothing for your party up. How do you expect me to support you when you aren;t helping with nothing, not even a sign.

I want to see all the VIP people take over the offices, but I cant vote for someone who isn't a leader. I don't like the Getty's, but he is always in the neighborhood talking to people. If you don't run PattiK I will be leaving that spot empty.

Please help the VIP win Patti.

This one's for all the folks posting from Forest Park:

Promises made, promises kept?

Apparently NOT to the Illinois Comptroller...2010 TIF reports were supposed to be submitted to them by mid February.

Still not received as of early March.

What do those bad boys contain that they are being kept under wraps until after the election?(At least that's the word from an affected taxing body.)

Now, for more on the library district referendum front.

Pros: Library would be safe from being arbitrarily shut down by VOL, as almost happened last December, when a certain Trustee tried to convince the VOL Board to not approve the library's tax levy.
Library would also receive it's property tax and PPRT $$ on time.

Cons: Certain costs will be added and if taxes do not increase then money for services will be reduced.
Easier to increase tax rate.
Possibility of a merger withanother library district - no public input required.

Guess it all boils down to who do we the taxpayers trust. We know the way the VOL players think and act. Not so much for the library board, although their standing up the taxpayers Saturday was not a good sign. So here is a link that illustrates the thinking of the library board president and reputed driving force behind the become a district campaign:

Sean yes they did leave a sign out front and yes I did throw it away put it in the trash where it belongs! Also Getty's trustees don't say much either last board meeting was 15 minutes! His trustees all look at him for his stamp of approval before they can say or do anything! This election day change is coming we're going to elect the VIP party Wisneski, Mendlik, Gatz, Graunke, and Johnson. Its time to send the insurance kid back to his parents shop!!!

Matthew 26:20-26:23

Matthew 26:20-23, "Now when the even was come, he sat down with the twelve. And as they did eat, he said, Verily I say unto you, that one of you shall betray me. And they were exceeding sorrowful, and began every one of them to say unto him, Lord, is it I? And he answered and said, He that dippeth his hand with me in the dish, the same shall betray me.

I honestly thought the Mayor was a nice young man until I was directed to this forum. It has to be the love for his father that has him doing all these things that some people dont agree with. Its got to be the direction from his father.

One inconvenient point here: we the taxpayers know nothing about how UCP has been managing VOL finances since they took "control" back in 2011, because the audit and TIF reports for 2011, due last summer, were never submitted to the Illinois Comptroller.

We DO know:

- bringing VOL up to date on statutory financial reporting requirements did not appear to be high on UCP's to do list...until the Illinois Comptroller delivered a KITA last fall.

- VOL has run without a current budget approved in a timely fashion (that is, before or early on in the current FY) since 2012, and the 2011 budget was approved late 2010...BEFORE UCP "took control"

- the current administration has failed to meet the agrred-upon Comptroller's deadline of mid-February for completion and submission of the TIF reports for 2010.

What's a voter to do? Good decisions rest upon reliable and complete information, something Trustees and taxpayers seem to have a hard time obtaining under UCP.
