Atleast when Touchette ran Centerville, he let a litle something in the pot for the people. The current politicians in Centerville aren't even leaving scraps behind for the people.

We are lucky to have the current Cahokia Mayor and Police Chief.

Fred does it for free because he has screwed the village for so long, he was getting paid for two or three job titles and had the highest income in the village. People, dont be so upset fred lost to curtis because fred is your mayor as we speak lol open your eyes. He runs cahokia and is laughing all the way to the bank. That same golf course hes working "free" now made him hundreds of thousands years ago. The whole crew got paid off of that job. Fred just knows how to play the game better ;) he got caught at fairmont race track while working and rushed back to cahokia jumped on a tractor only to jump back off and go on workmans comp before seeing punishment. That is genius ...he is no saint but old school and smart .... You clowns eat it all up too ....when freds wife was really sick frank gave him generators from the street dept to use in case the power went out. They were never returned. Having said that, garys first order of business was to try charging frank for a lap top that disappeared. Come on now mike king stole the whole village and moved to fla with the city van and you all love him to death btw he backs gary n fred imagine that

This is the most accurate statement i have seen on topix, and for that i thank you. I agree with the chief statement not the mayor but thats just an opinion. Thats why we all loved king so much. He robbed us blind but never missed a tball game or homecoming. We as taxpayers know what a leadership role leads to.... That being "BENEFITS" we dont want you not to get yours but give some back please. You cant just take take take geeze its take take give. That one give for two takes makes us love you because we feel we are benefitting too

Bald faced lies. And a very litigable slander and slur. Better start moving your money, bud, because if you can't prove these lies, you are going to be held financially liable. Better start making tracks, Bubba.

The people who support the non nominated and third party canidate Curtis McCall Jr ILLEGALLY used tax payer funded buses and school time to transport students to the county to vote
for Sprague's and Bergman's oreo proxy. Police were there at the behest of several tax paying citizens and employees who saw this happening. It is ok to register to vote at the school. But the 18 year old students can either vote at regular voting places on election (seversl w/in short walking distance of the school), just like the rest of us tax paying kcitizens who find the time to vote. These 18 year old students do not deserve any special transportation at my expense. Cut it out, McCall, your're going to get Falling Frank and "Buy Me" Sprague back in Cahokia tp rob us again.
This practice of bussing students to vote early and registar to vote has been going on since Pam Manning was the superintendent. She was trying to get a new High School built. Make your own conclusion.

Hell Frank Bergman didn't have one either & was hired by the county board on his "Merit". What F'ing merit, that fat bleach blond cheeseburger eating SOB has never earned anything in his life let alone having any merit.
Frank Bergman does have a degree. He earned while he was mayor. His education was subsidize by the village. He also interview for other jobs while on the village payroll.

Most cities pay for education if it is relevant to your job i think cahokia may be one im not sure on that one though dont quote me. Only makes sense if you want a promotion and it is required to move up
