Dick Sayad for Des Plaines Mayor and John Geils for Bensenville Mayor

Dear Chicago Clout Fans,
I hope you understand I have taken an interest in the Des Plaines election for 2009. I was involved in the Bensenville Election and also in the Park Ridge Election. I was involved in Bensenville because of the O'Hare Airport Expansion Project and then I got involved in Des Plaines Politics because Mayor Daley and his lieutenants are moving into Des Plaines. Two years ago, the Des Plaines Sixth Ward turned into a fight that became a boil in Des Plaines Politics no one wanted to talk about. The contracts and the Casino deals were in full swing and contracts were debated. Des Plaines Politics is interesting because you cannot trust anyone, you cannot trust the local newspaper, and they are sellouts and corrupt. Russ Stewart also got me interested in this game and I should make up my mind whether I should thank him or not.
I will tell you about the crazy local politicians soon, but I made up my mind on the best of the best. Enjoy my opinion, I base my choice on insider information.
Bensenville: Mayor JOHN GEILS: keep John, smart and not for sale.
Park Ridge: Tie, same but different. Town was screwed by Daley operatives' two elections ago. Enjoy loud planes and pollution, problems from Des Plaines Casino, with little benefits.
Des Plaines : DICK SAYAD: elect this man, period. He needs to put various political factions in order. Des Plaines needs a strong advocate, too much at stake. I got calls about his last mailing, many union members took it the wrong way. Sayad is not anti-union. I am a member of a Union, remember, putting a Union man like Marty Moylan in charge of Des Plaines will be an error. We need Unions to provide checks and balances. Marty Moylan will get eaten alive in this position, he is a full time Union Representative, and despite his assurance of "Flexible work schedule", he sounds like a John D'Amico clone. Dick Sayad has two terms of experience and was an independent Alderman. He did fight for his residents. Dick Sayad did give time and money to his ward. Marty has less than two years as Alderman and aligned with some bad local political blood. I also like Mark Thompson, the Burkross and Todd Wessell relationship is very unhealthy in this town, far too much hate. Mark Thompson would be a great Mayor, but a full time lawyer downtown would make the job a challenge, Mark would be a close second. Marty Moylan would be choice three, he still shook my hand and said hello despite my poundings. Michael Lake would be called "Dusty Knees" where I work and is a disgrace to everyman wearing the uniform. I think Lake ran for office to see his name in the paper or to be a spoiler. I spent more time on Des Plaines because the Casino invites many problems, vote for Dick Sayad.

No Games Chicago Rally a Great Sucess! Charles Walker Chris Shaw

No Games Chicago.jpg It was a great protest today as expected. A massive rally against the Mayor Daley Chicago Olympic bid went well with-out a hitch. I am very happy for the event organizers including Charles Walker, Bob Quellos of No Game Chicago. Charles Walker went to the site last night and found a large truckload of snow dumped on the speaker’s podium site. Charles Walker believes making lemonade out of lemons. Charles Walker, Rachel Goodstein, and Patrick McDonough stuffed a convict uniform with sticks and newspapers and put a mask of Mayor Daley on top. The Media went nuts and the image was sent everywhere. Only two of the costumes exist. That was funny.
The first speaker was Chris Shaw a expert on the costs of Olympic hosting. The next speaker was me, Patrick McDonough, I dragged up Rachel Goodstein, president of the Friends of Meigs Field. I was asked to speak about the corruption in Chicago. My speech started, “Chicago has a history of corruption maintained like a well tunes sports car. It hums along perfectly; it provides money, jobs, and contracts and great rewards for a chosen few. The Chief mechanic is Mayor Richard M. Daley.” I spoke about the Department of Water Management, Hired Trucks, and the retaliation Daley has for Whistleblowers. I got freaked out a little because the young kids were very quiet and listened closely. I wrapped up my speech with Rachel, it was great. I was glad I talked all about the old Inspector General, Alexander Vroustouris. I also enjoyed seeing my friend and fellow protester Patricia Hill. Patricia was always there when I needed her! Bob Quellos did an outstanding job, he and all his staff did a great job. I could not believe all the police, they were videotaping the event and they had a full battalion if horse mounted police. They were ready for my speech. Some protesters felt intimidated by all the cops. I am going to give more press to this group, they did a great job. Nice job Charles Walker.

April Fool's Day for all Des Plaines Taxpayers Read Des Plaines Journal

I have to make a major speech tomorrow in downtown Chicago. I am following the Des Plaines Mayoral races with great interest and was hoping to make a recommendation today but I am on another emergency. I am truly disgusted by radical activists and the local Republicans under the control of promised money and jobs. I am exposing the b.s. train controlled by Mayor Daley and the boys. These pimps have dogged out the public trust because some of your Des Plaines leaders have no work. The Chicago Tribune has a great article on O’Hare Airport Expansion. Bensenville and Des Plaines are in big trouble. I am going to endorse Mark Thompson or Dick Sayad. I hope Mayor Arredia gets a check from Park Ridge when he leaves office. http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/chi-ohare-suburbs-01apr01,0,7701235.story Expect a great article soon.
