Here we have a small model of the future Public Works Building, complete with fine Dining facilities, ultra deluxe washrooms with heated toilet seats, air-conditioning, heated garages, royally decorated offices, splendid landscaping and as you can see, a beautiful new landmark of a building.
We’ve overheard that this Public Works Building will be named after Bob Cole, yes what finer tribute to Bob Cole, who has waited decades for his turn to spend a wad of cash on his monument to himself.
Don’t worry though about how we’re financing this palace for Bob Cole’s trucks and employees. You see Bob has been on a fishing expedition for 2 decades to try to pay for his grand vision. The photo below shows Bob Cole landing this beautiful 12 million pound, oops… err, umm dollar bond. No easy feat, no sir! He landed this huge trophy, despite a recession [some of us think depression] a huge foreclosure rate, declining revenue and crumbling infrastructure.
No boys and girls, there’s no turning back now! No sirree, The Village Board just handed over 1 million pounds, ooops, crap, I mean dollars over to the developers and is non-refundable.
Congrats, Bob Cole on your major catch of the day!
Oh….will you be needing a brand new ice maker machine to replace the old one?
Just my thoughts,
A Carpentersville trustee was removed from the April ballot today after a lengthy review of signatures on her nominating petitions determined too many were ineligible or illegible.
The village’s electoral board rejected 45 signatures collected by Trustee Linda Ramirez-Sliwinski, leaving the first-term trustee with fewer than the needed 148 valid signatures, electoral board member Judy Sigwalt said.

There’s more coming from the crying Bill Sarto >>>
Trustee Linda Ramirez Sliwinski came up 6 signatures short after the conclusion of a very lengthy “binder check” at the Kane County Clerk’s office. Trustee Ramirez Sliwinski filed 187 signatures on her petition. This was 39 more signatures than required to have her name placed on the ballot. Generally, that would be considered to be a “safe” cushion by most political experts. Unfortunately, 45 of her signatures were successfully challenged. Most were removed because the person signing the petition could not be found in the Kane County Clerk’s voter registration system.
As part of the Electoral Board that participated in the voter registration “binder check” I must say that I find this very unusual. Especially, right on the heels of one of the largest election turnouts in recent history, also just following the massive voter registration of many first time voters it seems inconceivable that this could be possible.
