Village of Lyons Residents: I keep asking the UCP Faithful to answer a few simple questions, and they keep ducking and dodging, telling me about the Grand Picture Hanging in the Village Hall, or the Party at ZUPA's where all of the UCP Shills got together to Sooth and Comfort each other, that April 9th, is a Fate- Accompli!!!
* Dear Leader "Green Jeans Chris" has approved an $8,000 per year salary increase for himself, as well as Health Benefits Valued at an Estimated $15,000 per year!!!(Had to estimate this as our Legal Team, headed by old Burtie Boy, cannot find the time to do the Math!!!) So Dear Leader has given himself $23,000 increase in Salary and Benefits, thanks to us, the Village of Lyons Residents, should he be re-elected to the Office of Village President!!!!
* In order to keep us all informed of the Great and Wonderful Deeds, Dear Leader "Green Jeans Chris" is performing on our behalf, he has Hired a Public Relations Specialist to proclaim to all that Dear Leader "Green Jeans Chris" is the Second Coming!!! Cost for this Perk,$2,000 per month, paid for by us, The Village of Lyons Residents!!!

What, Oh What, would Dear Leader "Green Jeans Chris" and his Convicted Felon Father "Farmer Ken" do without Access to the Village of Lyons Taxpayer Funds, that they keep Accessing as if it were their Personal ATM?????

I hope to find out come April 10th!!!

On April 9th, Vote VIP,*WISNESKI*MENDLIK*GATZ*GRA UNKE*JOHNSON - and on April 10th, please join me in Welcoming Dear Leader "Green Jeans Chris", "Farmer Ken", and the UCP Bobbleheads, BACK TO LIFE IN THE REAL WORLD!!!!!

Why Vote: Please do not apologize to the UCP Bozo's, they should be the last to cast stones when someone forgets something!!!
Over the past 4 years, they have forgotten to produce BUDGETS, TIF REPORTS OR SCHEDULE ANNUAL TIF MEETINGS, they have forgotten to inform us, the Village of Lyons Residents, what is the State of our VILLAGE FINANCES, WHAT PRIVATE DEBT CERTIFICATES THEY HAVE ISSUED, AND TO WHOM!!!! They have forgotten to explain, to us the Village of Lyons Residents, how much we owe for these PRIVATELY ISSUED DEBT CERTIFICATES, and HOW LONG WILL WE BE PAYING THESE OFF!!!

Dear Leader "Green Jeans Chris", "Farmer Ken", and the UCP Bobbleheads forget lot's of things!!!!

They are also Hoping and Praying that on April 9th, you will also FORGET, all of the tasks that they have FORGOTTEN TO PERFORM FOR US, the Village of Lyons Residents, that they, as our Elected Officials, are EXPECTED and REQUIRED TO DELIVER!!!

So on April 9th, Let us, the Village of Lyons Residents, NOT FORGET TO VOTE VIP -*WISNESKI*MENDLIK*GATZ*GRAUNK E*JOHNSON!!!
Once Pattie and the Crew perform a FORENSIC AUDIT ON THE VILLAGE OF LYONS FINANCES, you will see an Epidemic of Forgetfulness sweeping across the UCP!!! And I do not think, they will be lining up to apologize to you, and the Village of Lyons Residents!!!!

With the Election so close at hand, Let us take a moment to reflect on some of Dear Leaders "Green Jeans Chris" Accomplishments.
* Gave himslf an $8,000 per year Salary Increase, and Health Benefits estimated at $15,000 Annually. Total Package for "Green Jeans Chris" if re-elected to Village President -$25,000 per year!!!
* Appointed Former Village of Lyons Mayor, Kenneth Getty Sr. "Farmer Ken" to Zoning Board!! "Farmer Ken" Also enjoys running around the Village Hall Barking Orders to the Troops!!! Yes, "Farmer Ken" Was Convicted and sent to Prison for Crimes he committed as Mayor of Lyons, crimes against us, the Village of Lyons Residents!!! Yet Dear Leader "Green Jeans Chris" Sees no problem with allowing him access to Village of Lyons Resources!!!!(Oh Francine - explanation please!!!)
* "Green Jeans Chris" Hired himself a Public Relations Specialist, at a Cost of $2,000 per month, to extoll all of the great and wonderful deeds, he is accomplishing on our behalf!!! We the Village of Lyons Residents Pay the Freight for this Luxury!!! TOTAL COST-$24,000 PER YEAR (How much you want to wager this does not include reimbursable expenses????)
* He hired a Part-time Village Manager at $65,000 per year!!! This Gentlemen's Claim to Fame is Boosting his Annual Pension by $30,000 per year, for 6 years of service to the Village of Oak Brook, and Saddling those unsuspecting taxpayers, with $750,000 of Unfunded Pension Liabilities!!!!(Great to have Tommy Boy here Serving Us, in his new capacity!!!)
* Hired Joseph Mario Moreno, as Village of Lyons Relationship Building Consultant, at $750 per month/$9,000 Annually!!!(Mario has since fallen off the grid, and is believed to be Building New Federal Relationships. Hmmm, did we ever get any reports or documents, justifying all of Mario's Relationship Building Efforts on our Behalf??? Francine, Oh Francine, if you are finished gazing at the Picture and Reveling at ZUPA's, maybe you could take a stab at this one???)

See the Pattern here people!!! If nothing else, this IDIOT needs to tossed from our Village Hall for LACK OF COMMON SENSE, and PURE, UNADULTERATED STUPIDITY!!!!

Oh, and one more thing. Did anybody ever get a final cost for Dear Leader "Green Jeans Chris" Having his NEW SELF ANNOINTED TITLE OF MAYOR, plastered on all of our Village Vehicles???(Oh Francine, can you please check in with Dear Leader and get us an estimated cost??? I know he is extremely busy, following VIP Supporters up and down Village Streets trying to intercept their pamphlets and literature, but if you ask nice, mention the picture, tell him what a great time you had at ZUPA's, and how nice his gelled hair looks, I bet he could shoot us a ballpark number!!! Thanks for all your efforts Francine!!! Come to ZUPA's on April 10th, and we can celebrate together, won't that be fun?????

wait don't include Campos in this? Hmmm isn't she the clerk of the town that was hired as a part time clerk but then her ucp cohorts decided to make her full time giving her a modest salary of $39,000.00 in pay and benefits. She is a UCP operative her name is in large letters on the obnoxious billboards. The only reason that her name appears so big is because no one knows who she is!!! UCP is out come April 9th when competent residents who actually own property here win the election!!! Vote straight VIP Wisneski,Mendlik,Gatz,Johnson, and Graunke!!!

To point 1, the 2009 debt paid off unpaid bills (unfunded debt). Same for all but $1.7 million of the 2010 issue. The Village had a schedule of doom (bills it could not pay) at the beginning of 2010 that totaled over $2.3 million. They made financial commitments for the park that were not funded.
Since your head is so far up you a**, you cannot see this. These details were presented at the Finance Committee that you attended. And ALL trustees including the Visk supporters and Patti voted for the 2010 debt; they had to. Otherwise the Village would have gone bankrupt.
And we encourage you to investigate the people behind the 2009 bond issue, Visk, Witherow, Hayden, Henn. You might be on to something; they controlled the issuance of those bonds. Check the 2009 audits and see what happened!!!!
Your negative partisan support of anybody but the people in power totally compromise ANY positive comment you could say.
By the way, the debt is below $25 million, not matter what goofy numbers you post. Page 49 baby. Thanks for showing how well Chris has done.
You forgetting the $750,000 borrowed December 16, 2012...or isn't that "real debt" in your mind.

No, the Trustees did NOT "have" to vote for the 2010 DCs. And funny, NOWHERE in the 34 pages of the Ordinance they voted for in Spetember of 2010 is the interest rate even mentioned, let alone capped at 9%(tax exempt) to 13%(taxable). So we the taxpayers must question whether they were misled by the architect of this debt and certain Village officials "in the know". Because I sure don't remember those interest rates being discussed.

Finally, Stool, the President of High Definition Powerwashing contributed a total of $500 in 2011 and 2012 to Getty campaign committees, and was given $6000 of business by VOL in 2012 business that previously had been free for the Village, done by volunteers and the county). A ROI of $12 in business for each $1 in campaign contributions. Apply that ROI to the $400,000 collected by the Getty committees...are we the taxpayers going to pick up the tab for $4.8M of expected ROI in contracts and business? How and with what funds? This in addition to the $2.6M due in 2013 for debt P&I, pension contributions, the $800,000 VOL will have to come up with if it is awarded that grant for enhancing Smith Park and the cost of that CMAP study. We'd check the budget, but gee, here we are into the second quarter and no budget for 2013 in sight? Can you help us out on this, with your insider info?

To all who stumble upon this forum. Swan, Stool, and She Back. A.k.a the "SSS" group. Will comment fast with swift action to counter any positive comments made towards Getty or the UCP. They are hired internet henchwomen to work maliciously for Pattie and the "VIP" party. They have made numerous attempts to discredit Getty and the UCP at any cost with no remorse. They are constantly going after and laying out personal attacks on Ken Getty Sr. The "SSS" work hard behind the scenes to mudsling any UCP Member or Supporter as best as they can. They will try to crawl under your skin like ticks! The "SSS" praises and worships Pattie and VIP on a pedestal made of gold. Despite all the crime and pedophiles VIP is tied to, the "SSS" will work diligently to dismiss any claims or counter attack to change the subject. Citizens be warned and take extreme caution as the "SSS" will likely attack you without hesitation. They are swift. They are dirty. They are cold blooded. They will try to eat and devour you. There is no known defense to steer clear of the "SSS". Everyone is subject to b victimized. You have been warned!
Poor, sick puppy! Who has to "attack" Ken Getty: his record speaks for itself.
