I see all the vacant stores everyday when i am coming home from work. The town looks pretty sad coming into it. All this home rule is what the hot topic is here. I am for it, if it saves our police department. I have 2 teen boys and i feel alot saifer with the police around. I also think worth police department is one of the finest i have ever seen. They are respectful and not to mention fair. I have been living in this town for 5 years, it is a good town. There are several problems though. I do not see why all the arab bussiness were closed, and talking to the people that once owned them it seemed like they where not treated fairly by the town. I do not think the people running this town are doing a horrible job. Also it might be a plus not to run the arabs out, because if you see alot of Bussiness are owned by arabs.

We are compatriots. Worth and Franklin Park Illinois.
Compatriots that say NO to HOME RULE.
Our team went to the streets today. Mayor Pritchett is reporting that almost all residents in his district are going to vote NO to Home Rule!
We are gaining ground and it is predicted that a goal will be made on election day. The final score is predicted to be 28:7.
Many of the women in our town are the cheerleaders. They know how to use a phone and talk to the neighbors. They provide drive for the heavy weights on our team and have doors open easily for our message of No Home Rule.
We send our best wishes to the our Compatriots in Worth Illinois (City of Friendly People). We want you to score a goal against Home Rule also.- Thank you, The Leaf Burners.
Excuse me? Many of the the WOMEN in town are cheerleaders? IF you haven't noticed, let me tell you: WOMEN wear pants, WOMEN are firefighters, police officers, doctors, lawyers, & CEOs of major companies .... AND WOMEN ARE ALLOWED TO VOTE now too, if you hadn't noticed ..... THE WOMEN OF WORTH, regardless of their views on Home Rule, are not cheerleaders .... they are the LEADERS of this town. Think on that, Compatriots Team.

BY THE WAY, MY VOTE IS FOR HOME RULE

Connect the dots folks. The above poster apparently did not read with any kind of comprehension of the English language. The Great people of Worth know how to read and they know what a metaphor is. Cheerleaders are a metaphor for the women that know how to communicate with their phones. They talk to the rest of the town about Home Rule, the silent campaign, the whisper campaign that goes on day and night. You won't see it on this blog.

Another SOCIAL DEMOCRAT that doesn't read what was wrote. These SOCIAL DEMOCRATS are always assuming. Easy to spot them folks. Their agenda is to take the money out of your pocket and spend it their way. Would you trust such a person as above, a person that can not comprehend what was said, a person that does not know what a metaphor is, would you trust that person with your money?

As always, Vote No to Home Rule. Good Night Great people of Worth Illinois.

Perhaps I am an idiot for not understanding your analogy, but as explained, your analogy still doesn't make sense & still just as offensive. I am a resident of Worth; why would I want to take money out of my neighbor's pocket? By the way, Democrats usually vote for large government; Home Rule is (when you get down to it) about smaller government.....

Now I know what that R in your name stands for.
Perhaps?
Please explain to me how Home Rule is 'smaller government'?
Home Rule enables the Mayor to make more departments where the Village can hide incentive money. That means more people will be employed to do just such tasks. That is bigger government.

Smaller government means that the decisions lie with the village, not with the state. MUCH EASIER to knock on the door of the Mayor than it is to knock on the door of the Governor ... WE can decide who has power in Worth.

Home Rule is for taxing the middle class and redistributing the money as incentives to the wealthy. SOCIAL DEMOCRACY.

Do you really know what home rule is about? I don't think so, by your reasoning how can you explain the fact that the vast majority of Illinois communities are home rule. Not just in the Chicago area but downstate also. The redistribution of wealth already has taken place starting in 1981 with Reagan, even his vice president said that trickle down economics was voodoo economics. This is where the massive tax cuts for the rich started look into it and you will find that the rich under Ike (a Republican)were taxed on a progressive basis of as high as 90%.
It is said that the definition of insanity is keep doing the same thing over and over again and to expect different results.
The no home rule agenda is driven by fear and blame and has no basis in fact for their stand. Scare the people degrade the present administration (which has done as much reduction of spending as they can without endangering the village or its residents). If you dare disagree with the no side you will be called retarded, as socialist, a Marxist or various other term they learned listening to Rush. They show no positive suggestions for the situation the village is in. The home rule towns that surround us have added taxes and people still go to them to shop.
As far as a cost to recalculate tax tables that is a bunch of bull as gasoline prices seem to change on a daily basis and the taxes on gasoline are complex as some taxes are on a gallon basis and others are on a percentage. As an example look at Thornton's it is partially in Worth and partially in Chicago Ridge, a home rule town with a different rate of tax than Worth. Are the pumps in Worth lower than the other pumps that have a higher sales tax rate. Home Rule is the only viable alternative than raising the property taxes and suffering from reduced services with increasing crime rates as our patrols are gone, and the criminals will know this and the undesirables in the village will take advantage of this.
The no side seems to have a personal agenda and not the good of the village as their intention. Why, did the candidates they supported in the last election lose. Why did thy lose? For the same reason the no side will lose. The people of Worth will that they have the intelligence to make the right choice.
Voting YES for HOME RULE is the only way to give the village of Worth a chance.

It just doesn't get any better than this. Another SOCIAL DEMOCRAT spewing lies and paranoia! Hahahah. FEAR!!!! Criminals taking over! Wow! Be Afraid! Home Rule will save you!

You see this Saul Alinski spewing SOCIAL DEMOCRAT using the demeaning technique right off the bat. He assumes that I don't know what Home Rule is. I know all you Great People of Worth, Franklin Park and Blue Island know from my comments that I know.

Take a look at the posting. The poster uses unoriginal ideas that you will find all over the WWW that conspiracy theorist have been using for the last ten years. These people are real anachronisms!

Let me dispatch the lie now.
There are 4891 cities and towns in the State of Illinois. It is claimed by the Attorney that is a spokesman for Home Rule that there are 199 communities with Home Rule in Illinois.

The poster above lies and says the "fact is the vast majority of communities in Illinois are Home Rule".

How are 199 communities with Home Rule a majority of 4,891 communities in Illinois?
http://illinois.hometownlocator.com/cities/

Do you want people like the poster above to have the upper hand? Do you want America to fall into the Abyss of Marxism? The Social Democrats are trying their best to change the face of America. Does your Mayor and Board of Trustees buy into this SOCIAL DEMOCRACY?

Vote No to Home Rule.

Just proof of the name calling I pointed out in my previous post.
THANK YOU FOR MAKING MY POINT.
The poster does not believe what the yes to home rule side says and distrusts and even infers his name calling on the current mayor and board, BUT IS QUICK TO CITE THE BOARD'S ATTORNEY!
Just ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF THE NO TO HOME RULE'S HYPOCRISY!
NO FACTS, NO LOGIC, just spouting lies and deception. The opposition to home rule just seems to be able to do is to call names, what a pity.

As to the second comment, yes I do smoke leaves. The wafting of the aroma of autumn leaves does leave a latent impression in one's mind. You'll smell it when you check the ballot, No Home Rule.

To the Wonderful People in all the communities that oppose Home Rule; You are doing great work by your combating the lies and bring forth the truth about Home Rule and your communities local government lack of transparency. We have the ball and are getting closer to the posts!

Folks,(haha) Look at the above poster. I am calling this to your attention because these above comments are made by SOCIAL DEMOCRATS. They bought into Saul Alinski's teachings on how to demean people and how to intimidate people.

They want to run your life but can not run their own. When they have no evidence to support their claims or when they are challenged they come up empty handed with no evidence to support their claims. When that happens they resort to such tactics as telling people to volunteer because they have no evidence to reply with in a logical argument. And when their 'volunteer' statement doesn't work they attack people by calling them idiots.

Would you want to have these people running your life? Would you have these people run the local government? Why are these people so interested in Home Rule? Because if Home Rule passes they will have your money without working for it.

Vote No to Home Rule. Keep your money in your pocket, keep your local government under your control and don't ever give up your freedom.

Vote No to Home Rule.

Not only will Home Rule raise prices in your local community, Home Rule will give the Local Government powers to purchase property with your money and then manage that property and collect rent.

Local Government is not a business, Local Government are not Real Estate Agents.

In the following video you can see for yourself how the Home Rule people want to acquire property from the private sector and place it on the Government roles. The Local Government then will control the property. Is this the job of Local Government? Is your private property next?

The part in the video starts at 4:00 minutes to the end. It's just a short ten or fifteen seconds.

Home rule is not the answer! The answer lies in balancing the budget. Consolidate the police department with Palos Heights as they seem to spend alot of time in our village anyway. Or better yet contract with other villages for police services. The call volume vs the cost warrants a look at contract services. Stop paying North Palos to protect us for the 2-3 calls per day. Start a part-time department for less than the North Palos contract.

In Worth there are currently 34 store fronts that are vacant, anyone who questions this please drive thru and count the open store fronts, there not hard to see. With this amount of empty business I think the Village should be trying to attract business which will create more sales tax.If the Board decides to increase the gas tax as one of there first tax increase that they will do its three cents more than if you go to Thorntons which is always three cents lower than BP. Common sense tells me in this economy that I'm going to go to the cheaper place to buy gas.Home rule to me is an easy way to increase the taxes on already burden ridden homeowners who can't afford to do anything due to cost. Next thing to tax is food and with Fairplay being the only store that has any kind of deals this will put an end to this bargain store. Look around thearea there are more grocery stores closing because they cannot compete.
