Let's see Bush went to a the ranch that he owns and worked most of the time and when he wasn'tRead Moreworki ng he was spending time hosting wounded warriors. What has your Mr. O done? Martha's vineyard at 10G a week and how many trips at millions of dollars has his useless wife taken? And yes we pay for all of her secret service and the costs to house and fly them.

Now what has Jim Ladas or LUV done for our village? And "by force"? Really Mr. Ladas? Respectfully Bartholomew Sylvester Buster III

The following comment was posted by Mr. Ed Andrysiak, but was then deleted: “If the MayorRead Moreand his Board facilitated or created your opportunity to vote on that issue he is entitled to the credit someone gave him. Jim...you are grinding away and splitting hairs unfairly. As a word of caution...we Lemonters aren't stupid and if you keep up your biased picking, on everything, only YOU will be discredited. Wake up.” The following is my original response to these comments and which was also removed: “I do not believe I was being unfair. I simply brought to light the absolutely essential role played by Lemont voters in bringing lower electric rates to the village, a key fact that was completely neglected by the anonymous comment referred to in my essay. Feel free to give credit to the mayor for putting the measure on the ballot. But apparently he and the village board get to cherry pick the issues on which they will allow us to vote. The fact is though that no matter what the mayor did, Lemont could not have joined the WEAG without the votes of 1,412 citizens. I will keep grinding away whenever I think the rental sports complex proposal is being neglected or distorted. I have only one bias; I believe that the citizenry deserve a right to vote on any issue that involves taking on a huge debt. Since I’m not looking for any credit, it will be extremely hard to discredit me. But I will continue to try to let the people of my town know what is happening. To let them know that our village leaders are willing to take Lemont into tens of millions of dollars of debt in order to build a facility geared toward renting to elite traveling youth athletic teams. That they plan to build this extravagance on land they do not own, land that they plan to rent from the Metropolitan Water Reclamation District, land that is currently polluted. That although they promise it will pay for itself, they are prepared to pledge millions of dollars of village revenues as collateral to cover any losses. And if those funds are insufficient, if our town can’t afford it, that we may face dire financial consequences, a possible economic catastrophe. And I will continue to remind them that our village board robbed them of the chance to vote on funding for this project. I am sorry sir. I am wide awake. So wide awake that I can see the potential nightmare that appears to be invisible to you.

Awake, but misguided by hate and anger! Respectfully Bartholomew Sylvester Buster III
