Funny how the article fails to mention the Mayor of Mokena Joe Werner was hired recently to supervise the Blue Island Water Dept.

Peloquins kid is an engineer for Mokena. What family members of the other 2 mayors are profiting from Peloquin?

They should probably save their dimes. The center of voter gravity in the 1st District is in Chicago and the Cook County south suburbs. I would venture to say that Peloquin could be beaten in Blue Island, never mind Will County.

A drive though Blue Island will let everyone know exactly how the 1st district would look in the unlikely event he is elected.

Gee, Neighbor, I wasn't speaking as a candidate, I was speaking as the chairman of the Frankfort Township Democratic Organization, which has given me some small insight to the problems that Peloquin will be facing.

By the way, how many elections did you have to win to get a Republican propagandist's license?

Rush will win hands down, no doubt, and he didn't fix sidewalks to get in office.

He has not managed Blue Island very well, so what would he do to the 1st district?

That would likely be the only way that Republicans could avoid having their fairy tales challenged.

Taxpayer money went to no bid contracts, appointments for professional services, while the bridges were closed, financial records were withheld from the golf course for years, and when the aldermen voted against the reappointment of the golf course manager; Peloquin put him in anyway. No way to run a business, no way to run a city and just plain wrong.

These actions are unacceptable.
