He sure deserves it being a part -time Mayor you sure do need a PR a AST and needs pops giving out orders. Didn't the Mayor say it was "disasterous" to take away an exempt? Hypocrite!

since da boyz from Buffalo Grove obviously wanted the handle "She Back" so badly, back to posting as Elizabeth Swann! Here is the post that got pulled off this morning...back again.

Saw the "businessmen's flier"..paid down $5M in debt...Naw, only $2,845,948 since 2011...of course VOL ALSO paid $2,120,544 in INTEREST (which must of course be paid, but does NOT reduce the debt...are we SURE that the business folks put this info out there? If this is how they are keeping THEIR books...).

Also, let us not forget that since Getty et al took office in 2009, VOL has issued an additional $2.9M in 2009 Series Bonds and Debt Certificates plus over $4M in NEW GO debt via those variable rate 2010 Debt Certficates.

And then the part about cleaning & repairing streets & sidewalks...Residents pay HALF to get their sidewalks repaired (Do you businesses get a better deal?) and last I looked, community block grants & Motor Fuel Tax paid to repair streets. All of the above plus street cleaning were also done by every previous administration.

The other page, well...no offense, but ...$7M of the GO Bond debt was approved by the people of Lyons via referendum and additional debt was issued in 2003 (the Vachata years), most of the over $7M of Senior & Junior Lien Revenue fixed rate TIF debt supposedly refinanced in the 2010 variable rate Debt Certs was issued in 2002 through 2004 (again, the Vachata years), plus NO clean hands in regards to running up the unfunded liabilities of the Firefighters & Police Pension Funds. So proof, businessmen, of what you say.

Finally, Getty/UCP extinguished reckless spending?
The last VIP flyer addressed that one, for sure...Guess our honest businessfolk think that if a lie is repeated often enough, it becomes accepted as truth. Well, "you can't fool all of the people all of the time."

Same old ramblings even though you are back from your jaunt to Buffalo Grove. Where do you get your information? The 2012 budget shows that all of the fund debt and past due bills were repaid. It shows that another $1 million in principal and interest. Did you ever add up the debt oustanding. Doubt it. Using the amount from the County after Visk ran up debt to $30 million.

The $3 million in 2009 bonds were to pay bills the Village had already spent. And in 2010, all but $2 million were to refinance Village debt. The $2 million was to fund the contracts that were incurred WITHOUT FUNDING.

Good news is that neither UCP or VIP will listen to you. A non issue, not even worth this response.

WAC: This is a more appropriare moniker, typical UCP Wac Job!!!!
Lets's talk about change.
*$8,000.00 per month Raise for our Village Preident. Health Benefits for our Village President and Trustees.
* Village Lawyer and White Collar Mouthpiece, old Burtie Boy, hasn't been able to find time to calculate cost of Health Benefits for our Dear Leader and the Bobble Heads!!! So let's estmate $15,000.00 per year. Our Dear Leader has given himself an $8,000.00 raise and $15,000.00 in a Health Package - Total $25,000.00 for Dear Leader.
* 2,000.00 per month to pay for a Public Relations Expert, to write glowing articles and sound bites, extolling our Dear Leader, "Green Jeans Chris'", 4 Year Listening Tour, and all of his "Relationship Building"!!!
* Hire a Part time Village Manager, at $65,000.00 per year.(A Village Manager that the Better Government Association and the Chicago SunTimes recently reported that nearly $750,000.00 in unfunded pension obligations have been imposed on the Village of Oak Brook, related soley to former Police Chief Tom Sheahan)Sheahans attitude, as stated in the Sun Times, regarding the Pension Sweetner he, and only HE, qualified for; Sharp-tongued and unapologetic about benefitting from the provision that no one else has used, the 59-year-old Sheahan said of his pension: "I worked for 24 f------ years [in the public sector], I deserve every penny of it and I deserve a lot f------ more."
This is our Village Manager, that Dear Leader has created a position for, he certainly deserves it!!!! All paid for by us, the Village of Lyons Residents!!!!! Making sure he gets what he deserves!!!
*Hire Joseph Mario Moreno as a $750.00 a month Consultant to "Build Relationships" with our own Cook County Board!!! Old Mario, was supposedly wearing a wire for the FEDS, for months!! And has now disappeared from View!! Bet Mario is no longer Listening, and is now Blabbering!!!! But old "Green Jeans Chris" and "Farmer Ken" thought they needed his expertise in Building "Relationships." "Green Jeans Chris" and "Farmer Ken" I certainly hope you two did more "Listening" tham "Talking" when old Mario was in the room!!!
Yea, WAC, we certainly have experienced change under this regime!! And WE THE VILLAGE OF LYONS RESIDENTS ARE CERTAINLY PAYING THE FREIGHT FOR IT!!!!!

My bad Ladies. I didn't mean to get the Womens Civil Rights movement started on here! And again, the things I state are only an opinion. Just a single opinion from my view only. I don't take claim to UCP. Yes, I voted for UCP early already, but the comment I made should not make UCP liable. Nor should anything I say, or others.. it's all "hearsay" as someone mentioned early. So don't get your panties all in a bunch and get bent out of shape over it. It's just my personal opinion that there are certain times of the month which causes a women to have higher stress levels than men. That is a proven scientific fact. There is nothing wrong with a women in office, but one that lets her emotions gets the best of her and can easily lash out at people because of not being able to hold her anger or feelings can effect certain situations. You made your own example of that firing at me right away calling me sexist. You didn't think before you wrote. I know you immediately didn't like what you heard so you attacked right away with out thinking. Am I right? You got pissed and you ranted right away? Tell me I'm wrong. My wife even agrees with me on this on.
LPH: You are certainly the Poster Boy for Morons!!! And now we discover you have a Wife, and she agrees with you!!!! You really have an understanding for the inner workings, of the Fairer Sexes Mind!!!! What a Lucky and Blessed Woman She must be!!!!

Excuse me... I just asked "what did P.W. supposedly say"
You were the one taking it off topic with your remarks about why women aren't elected US Presidant etc....
My "panties are not in a bunch" over your comment and I'm real happy for you that your wife is on your side.
LMNO: Pay no attention to this UCP Knucklehead, and his UCP/Forest Park Spin Room Buddies. They are spouting all kinds of B.S. to get everyone focused on their rantings and ravings, and keep the focus off of "Farmer Ken", "Green Jeans Chris", and the UCP Bobbleheads Running for Office!!! Same with highjacking She Backs Moniker to spout all of their B.S.
Election Time is here, and they have NO Record, No Platform, and NO Vision for the Future to Run on!!!! So when you have nothing of substance, baffle the masses with Bullshit!!!! And here we are!!!
They certainly do not want questions being asked about LACK OF VILLAGE BUDGETS, NON-EXISTENT AND MISSING TIF REPORTS AND UPDATES, VILLAGE FINANCES AND PRIVATELY ISSUED DEBT CERTIFICATES!!!!! NO, No, No, we cannot let the voters focus on anything of substance, Gosh No, they might actually vote us out of Office!!!! They might find out about our Grand Plans to PRIVATIZE THE VILLAGE WORKERS, OR OUR PLANS TO TAKE CONTROL OF THE SCHOOL BOARD AND PRIVATIZE SCHOOL RESOURCES, AND BUILD RELATIONSHIPS WITH SCHOOL FUNDS AND BONDING CAPACITY!!!! No, No, NO, can't have that!!!
These idiots have so little respect for their Constituents, they even had the Goof from Bridgeview purchase a newspaper and turn it in to their own Ego Booster, and expect us all to believe that this is an Independent Legitimate News Paper!!!!!
These Dummies have cancelled any and all Village Meetings, Finance and Board, until after the Election, WHY?????? Makes you have to think, and wonder, WHAT IN THE WORLD, IS UCP, "FARMER KEN", and "GREEN JEANS CHRIS", HIDING FROM US THE VILLAGE OF LYONS RESIDENTS?????
Mario Joseph Moreno, the Consultant and Relationship Builder, hired by "Farmer Ken" and "Green Jeans Chris", hired to "Build Relationships" with our own Cook County Board, at an "EXTREMELY MODEST" MONTHLY FEE OF $750.00, paid for by us, the Village of Lyons Residents, also seems to be hiding!!!!!!
"Farmer Ken", "Green Jeans Chris", this may just turn out to be the best $750.00 per month, we the Village of Lyons Residents ever had to pay!!!!!!
Mario, We hope and Pray you LISTENED WELL!!!!! BUILD THOSE NEW RELATIONSHIPS MARIO!!! DO TELL, DO TELL!!!!!

Francine, you seem to be in the know. Any word on Village of Lyons Budgets???? Can you get us any information on the Missing TIF Reports????? What about those Privately Issued Deb Certificates, can you check and see who is holding the paper on these, and exactly what WE, the Village of Lyons Residents, are on the HOOK FOR???????
Francine: Can you tell us why "Farmer Ken", and "Green Jeans Chris", disbanded Neighborhood Watch, and Contracted it out????
Francine, can you justify the $2000.00 per month we are paying for the Public Relations Specialist, for our Dear Leader??????
Francine, Can you rell us why we needed a CONSULTANT, to BUILD RELATIONSHIPS, with our own Cook County Board, when we have a Cook County Commisioner living and breathing right next door in McCook??????
Francine, Can you tell us all why we had to Pay $750.00 per month for this Consultant, Mario Joseph Moreno???????
Francine: did you know, it is alleged, that Dear Leader has spent some quality boating time with ole Mario?????
Francine: Can you tell us why the Finance and Board Meetings have been cancelled until after the Elections, yet "Green Jeans Chris" felt it was his duty to hold "The Getty Event" prior to the Election, even though he was not required too???????

No Francine, you cannot tell us any of these things. You cannot answer or justify an questions or concerns, on pertinent issues of the day, facing us the Village of Lyons!!!

Look at the PICTURE FRANCINE, EVERYBODY, LET'S ALL LOOK AT THE PICTURE WITH FRANCINE!!!!

ARE WE ALL FEELING GOOD YET?????

Views from the high stool you are awesome! Please keep serving up the truth to these shmucks as they cant handle the truth! They play gutter politics and love to distract from the real issues. They also love harassing and bullying the residents. So much for an open government and working for the people! Their party is a joke and in shambles which is why Getty and his sidekick Kyle have been out walking! This April 9th vote straight VIP for a breath of fresh air!!!

After another successful night at Getty's fund raiser and dinner party last night at Zupa's.. I have come to the realization how close residents and businesses are brought together through the UCP party. I assure we have nothing to worry about. Let's stop wasting our time on here going back and forth with the VIP supporters. They are very hard headed and narrow minded. You will not be able to convince them to vote UCP. There was a great turn out last night with people of all ages from early 20's to people even 80 years old! I seen a lot of strong business owners at the party who are convinced their patrons or clients in Lyons fully support Getty and UCP. There was at least 300 different faces that came by through the night. It was a great time! There is a lot of support and hope for UCP. We are just wasting our time on here. Let the half dozen VIP members and or supporters go back and forth with their dreams of winning and there epic fails of trying to discredit Chris and UCP time after time again. VIP is not winning. I never received one invitation from them to go to any kind of formal address or support meeting. They have nothing to present. They are all hiding inside there litte houses and hoping to convince the few people on here to vote for them. People know the truth. Everything on here is just a game. Let VIP play their little games while the UCP Supporters do what needs to be done. The big game begins April 9th, GET OUT AND VOTE GETTY AND UCP STRAIGHT! WE WILL BE VICTORIOUS!!!
