I've been seeing a bunch of great points around Topix about the serious flaw's in Jesse Martinez's plan. I wanted to summarize them in this discussion.

1) I keep hearing Jesse wants to get Melrose Park out of debt. And to do that, I understand he would have to raise taxes. I figured, although that seems like a bad idea, it makes sense. One thing he would have to do to cut the debt is raise taxes. But how do I know he'll do it. And then I read, and did some research, and discovered that Stone Park (the town he is/was a trustee in) is one of the highest taxed municipalities in the state! So, it seems almost certain, if Jesse were mayor, taxes would go up.

2) I heard that Jesse would seek investors from anywhere to get money back into Melrose Park. That he would likely allow more section 8 housing, and various other undesirable businesses and residents. This seems logical, but again I had no proof. Then I thought about it (for about 2min) and realized that's exactly what they do in Stone Park! Stone Park is filled with strip clubs and sketchy bars! Per capita, it probably has the most strip clubs and "promiscuous" bars in the state! So, it also seems certain, if Jesse were mayor, we would get a ton of awful businesses flooding into Melrose Park.

I think Jesse's political rhetoric and his political history have finally come together to tell us the man he really is. If he were ever mayor it seems almost completely certain that not only would he raise taxes (like they did in Stone Park), but he'd also welcome money from anyone (like they did in Stone Park with strip clubs, prostitute bars, adult bookstores). I will be telling everyone I know not to vote for Jesse Martinez - ever.

Why don't you just ask Jesse and his candidates to tell you their plans. Why don't you stop by their campaign office and talk to them? I was a Serpico supporter in the past but not anymore. Maybe I'll stay home but your comments are pushing me to vote for Martinez.

I've already talked to Jesse - who hasn't? I don't need to talk to him again so he can offer me a job I don't want and that he won't be able to give me when he loses the election.

Also, if pointing out to you that a pig with lipstick on is still just a pig, only makes you want to buy that pig more, than I feel sorry for you.

How many dollar stores, rim shops etc can a town a have? Why would he have to raise taxes? How about reducing the code enforcement department to start?

Does Jesse Martinez even live in Melrose Park? He should go back to Stone Park and run for Mayor there. They probably didn't want him there either so he's trying to come to Melrose.

Really he offered you a job, even though you are clearly against him? You have never spoken to him... If you are going to spread lies at least have them make a little sense.

Why do Jesse's supporters always use such profanity on here? I haven't met Jesse yet, but from reading how his supporters talk on here I'm concerned. I don't know any of them, but they seem like a scary group of guys coming in to town cursing and yelling. I hope they don't come by my door. I don't think I'll be voting for them.

I am NOT a Jess fan. The guy is an idiot!But what will he ruin? MP is already ruined! Serpico and the corrupt mobbed up leaders have already ruined MP. There is nothing left.

No younf families want to move to MP. No middle class whites want to move into MP.Serpico with his mob connections and strip bars and porn shops and corrupt cops has made this town one of the least desirable cities in Chicagoland. He and his supporters blew it! They could have made MP into a desirable, well managed place to live. Instead its the butt of every mob joke.

If anyone is of Italian heritage they should want to treat these corrupt politicians like Mussalini.They are an embarrassment to Italians. They sold out for their own personal gain and forgot about the people that got them elected. They think they are above the law and when the Feds come they will be ratting on each other.
