Are you suggesting you frightened McConnaughay so badly she "fled" the county? Does yourRead More ego know no limits? You're a joke, Jeffy. No one takes you seriously. And this pandering to every county official! I know you need a job, but your tongue is so deep you can taste what they had for dinner.

Pathetic Engage200 meeting of seeking CPR help with 70% failed Jefferson Levy and listening toRead More Student Furniture Salesman (former used cars) pitching replacing existing student's desks including Hubble. By the Book the current price for same Jefferson replacement is $20,000,000 before any interest. Perhaps almost every resident remembers Hubble at $30,000,000+ interest that is part of the yearly $8,000,000+ interest payments. Further comparison of the two schools included good yearly; Fire/Life Safety Inspections, Boiler/Pressure Vessel Inspections, Roofing Maintenance Programs and Asbestos Management. Jefferson (and any other public building) has the need upon any remodeling work beginning including required compliance with ADA requirements to accommodate those students with special needs, i.e. wider bathroom doors, wheelchair accommodations and all the minor modifications we see everyday in other buildings. Doubt anyone has seen a single building anywhere ripped to the earth to accommodate special needs? Federal ADA laws are for modification of existing buildings NOT demolitions!

By the way, the 2011 bill that called for smart grid and smart meters, was also an employment billRead More "utility shall create 2,000 full-time equivalent jobs in Illinois" and a "green energy" bill. No wonder our electric rates are sky rocketing. see the bill http://ilga.gov/legislation/publicacts/97/097-0616.htm

Jeff, Jeff, Jeff Odd that you would pick this race to write about ... or is it? As Paul Harvey usedRead More to say, "now you know the rest of the story." But in this race you haven't written about the rest of the story. I bet the rest of the story would be a real interesting read. Are you going to write about that? You could do it on your coffee break (sorry old friend, I just couldn't resist!) Too bad only 12 people read the Patch anymore. And even less write a blog. The Patch had a good thing going there for a while.

Bob, I would not have been able to resist either and sadly, I can't talk about it. But what I canRead More say is that mistake actually was an honest one. When the Illinois State Board of Elections called the office (and not the campaign), I didn't think twice about making the correction. And the best evidence is that I did it on my County email account which I knew would be posted with the correction. It's not like I was trying to hide anything! And I completely agree with you about Patch, but since I'm putting the stuff up on my blog anyway (http://thefirstward.net/) I thought I'd put some of it here too. And TheFirstWard.net is doing really well. Let me know if you ever want to contribute!
