Our prayers are with ya George. Hope the court finds in your favor and the recount is in your favor. We need to have you back at the helm to rid us of what has happened since Black took over and allowed Romanik to pulls the strings in Caseyville. If only we knew then, what we know now.....Good Luck
for the record

Hopefully the courthouse has been watching the news, reading the news and knows that Caseyville is in ruins now. Hope the judge finds the law in Chance's favor. If not this town is gone forever. Good Luck, Mr. Chance.

Go George go. People voting out of the mayors or ex mayor blacks renting homes that don't live there is enough to show all that Romanik taught him them tricks from Washington park.

I read the comment to the article in the news democrat this morning from Brad. I was glad to see that he put it in print that " he truly regrets
having supporting Leonard Black" He also states that Bob Romanik runs the Village of Caseyville. Brad, I am glad to see that you realize Leonard Black used you. The little man has always used people for his own agenda and people tried to warn you. Good luck to you and I hope you become a thorn in his side. I am sure that you could get even with him really easy.

I am surprised it took this long. You would think that they would have checked into this earlier. I guess Bobby D. Slowed this process . Interesting !

Brad Vanhoose, I know you read topix once in awhile and hope you read this.
Since Black screwed you over after you spent so much of your time working for his election and defending him, why don't you shed light on his black ops and take him down for what he has done to you? What he did to you, is what Romanik told him to do to you. Black holds Romanik closer to him and felt you were expendable in order to abide by what Romanik wished. If Black found it so easy to screw you, perhaps you should realize this is a double edge sword. Your past enemies could perhaps end up being your closest allies. Go for it.
Also, start your own lawn cutting business, you might be surprised how much business you would actually get. People know how hard you work and how dedicated you are.

Brad, "time to be heard" is so right on. You are the one out there working like a dog when Black is kissing Romanik's a$$. Hope you come out okay on this deal. Don't let those jerks get the best of you. I bet you could bury them both. Good Luck and remember those close to Black at city hall used you at election time too and will also screw you.

Read Brad's comment to article in News Democrat today about election case. At first I believe that the man finally saw the light. After reading his comment today, sounds like he is trying to get back into Black's good graces. So my opinion of him has changed back to before. I really thought he was trying to better himself. Was Wrong.

After attending last night's board meeting, sounds like Caseyville First is Leonard Black's only cheerleader. The people that supported him let it be known that he is not wanted anymore and only won by 4 votes. Too bad we all had to watch our city go down in ruins over 4 votes. Wish I could change mine now. But I hope there is a way to get him removed from office. If he had any decency he would resign. But he is hooked up with Romanik so he has no decency.

Who says I'm cheering for Leonard Black? It just happens that I have less for George Chance.
