TLC / MVP took enough from this village. Still are. TLC / MVP also with School Board. Check it out. So who is better. Right now the Getty's.Get over it. Don't like it run for Mayor. You can do a better job, I guess. Well, that is what you seem to be saying.
well, let's see, TLC's been out for how many years? and MVP has how many on the current board? and how long has he been mayor? come on, look at who's in charge for the last five plus years and ask why are we in debt? where's the money going? where's a budget? quit sending out all the glossy, expensive garbage and balance the budget, it would be refreshing.

Mayor Getty had Wisneski and Krueger on board. He actually had TLC /MVP on the board for the first 2 years. They did a number on this village. Spent most of the money. Getty and his board now are bailing out. Look back at records. Check it out before you write.
TIF'S , Taking property, Building the Police Station with a new Village Hall and Community Center in the wrong place. Costing us money for our so called FREE Quarry land. They pulled many tricks on us. We the people are paying for the mistakes. Thanks Visk.

two is far from a majority....it's been five years and we're worse off now than before using tif money to fund other tif's. Five years should show progress not worse debt but then we don't even have a budget. How do you function without a budget? I don't, do you?

Ask the Federal Government, they seem to be having the same problem.

I can't believe how naive some people are that when they see contributions like those shown they don't have a problem with this. I don't care what party or candidate, if you take their money they are looking for something in return.

WOW! Just got our Fall/Winter program guide, and the opportunities are so overwhelming I don't know what to do first. Two whole pages - face to face - about the community picnic, although my copy just arrived yesterday and the picnic is today. And our two full-time recreation employees have really outdone themselves with the variety of programs they are putting on...a trip to a casino, two Kenpo classes, a "workshop" put on by the county, a Lego program, a health screening, rules of the road, a blood drive, a Zumba and a Yoga class. And we get all this terrific programming for $250,000! And did you notice the Union bug on the cover - I wonder where the union print shop is in Lyons? Oh, wait, it doesn't matter as long as they gave a little "donation" to Chris' campaign fund.

Just drove by the picnic - if you want to go you had better hurry as the last several hundred FREE parking spots aren't filling up and the place is overrun by 10's of people...

. I know that I can't' wait to buy my ticket to the big dinner dance for only $100. Wait, my hubby should go too. After all I will need a dance partner. Can't wait to shell out $200 for this fabulous event. NOT!!

Totally agree...if I want to spend $200 on a night out it would never be the crappy food and sh!##y drinks at Crystal Sky. I could have a great dinner at a lot of places for that amount. But let's not forget the profits will go to restoring the Tower and hundreds of other public projects, according to our Village President. And I thought it had been announced that it would be held at the village center? Could the fact they had a problem serving alcohol right next to the police department made them change their minds???
