High Rollers, Snake Eyes?!?!





The Village Board has already said that your taxes will go up, but how much? Trustee and #1 number cruncher of this Village Board Paul Humpfer doesn’t know. So, I guarantee you that the rest of this Village Board doesn’t know either. Carpentersville Finance Director Lisa Happ doesn’t know. Hmmm, but they continue pushing this multi-million dollar palace for Public Works?!?!



What’s so scary about this scheme is that Kane County has already sent homeowners their new assessments, which plainly shows that property values have declined. Next year, you’ll receive your reassessment from Dundee Township and I guarantee you that it will definetely show all our property values have plummeted. So, that means our property taxes will go down, right? Nope! The Village of Carpentersville would see less revenue from this decline in property values, so they must and will raise taxes again to keep paying off all those bonds that Carpentersville has. At least our Village Board gets those monthly paychecks from the taxpayers to help pay for those extra taxes that this Village will impose on the struggling families of Carpentersville. 


Yes, let’s place our priorities on the welfare and comfort of Public Works employees. I’m sure this Village Board knows what’s best for Carpentersville and those whining taxpayers. That’s one of the reasons why this Village Board passed that poison pill at the cost of 1.3 million dollars without a public hearing. Sort of the Father knows best thing, I guess.


With elections only about 18 months from now, what will those who’ll run for re-election do to “stifle” the complaints about the increase in taxes, in these troubled economic times?

Pat Schultz, Reformer or Hypocrite?


During the dark days of the Boettger & Sigwalt administration, when “No-Opinion Audits” were just as common as handing out candy on Halloween and collusion among Village Board members to stifle dissent was justified to move Carpentersville “FORWARD.” It seems that we’re revisiting history.

Back in those Dark Ages, Pat [Patricia] Schultz was among many, who found the tactics of the Boettger/Sigwalt administration as being DICTATORIAL and unhealthy for Carpentersville’s finances and transparency.

Now that she is elected and is part of the political machine, she has embraced the former tactics of the Boettger/Sigwalt administration. She believes “secrecy” is now the best policy. No need for public input from the taxpayers, since the “political machine” knows best!

I guess it proves that evolution is a fact! Politicians, such as Pat Schultz, promises reform and transparency, but once elected they become the monsters that they once fought against.

Linda Ramirez Sliwinski who prides herself on Representing the Hispanic Community, Lost because of Her support for Illegal Aliens and Her Help in Issuing Mexican ID cards to those Illegal Aliens.

Apathy won the election in Carpentersville on April 7th. Less than 15% of the registered voters voted. Of that number only 48% voted for the winner and 52% voted for someone other than the winner. That’s hardly any mandate!

Sarto Lies about the Capital Improvement program

In response to Bill Sarto’s blatant Lie, We thought we’d tell people the truth about how and when the Capital Improvement Program began.

Sarto’s Lie as posted in the Daily Herald

posted by Bill Sarto on Wed Apr 01, 2009 5:59 PM

RCG a.k.a. Richard Grass-

For your information the Main Street Bridge was rebuilt while I was the Village President. The Engineering on that project won the Village an award. The Engineer at the time was our current Village Engineer, Scott Marquardt. If you’d like proof, stop by Village Hall and in the outer office of the Village Manager is the award that the Village won.

Can you tell me what part Paul Humpfer played in the finances of the Village? Trustees Sigwalt and Humpfer were on the Village board prior to me and there was NO Capital Improvement Program until 2006. That happened after I was elected. It was a campaign promise that I had made and kept, unlike the promises made two years ago by both Humpfer and Sigwalt that were never kept. I have kept all of the promises I made during the campaign of 2005.

See, that’s the big difference between the majority on the board and myself. I keep my word and produce real results. They are all talk with nothing else to back them up. The results have come since my election. Why didn’t the board previous to my election fix the streets and infrastructure? Why did it take my election to get results?

King Sarto is delusional and believes everyone, including the Republican Party is out to get him!

Seek help Carpentersville Village President Bill Sarto, before you hurt someone or yourself.

Over at the Daily Herald blog site, our beloved King Sarto has pointed out that he knows everyone of those anonymous posters, who he perceives as his enemy.

Our King has now accused Pat Schultz as being the anonymous poster by the name of “Old Towner.” He also accuses her of attacking not only himself, but he also implies that Pat Schultz has attacked Public Works Director Bob Cole’s visions for a new public works building.

Go to the link provided and see how our beloved King, who acts like someone who may suffer from grand illusions of greatness and of course paranioa. Is this due to dementia, alcohol or just a mental illness in it’s later stages?


Here’s Pat Schultz e-mail that I was able get, which explains Pat Schultz side of the story. This includes parts of the discussion on the Daily Herald blog.

Just to clarify. I received a call last night asking if I looked at this article in the DH and all it’s comments. I hadn’t so I went out there and apparently Bill has me confused with someone who hides behind the name “Old Towner.” I have only posted once in a paper in response to an article and that was the article about Bonnie Lipprandt. You may be able to research and find it. Sorry to disappoint Bill but I used my real name. Always do.

I will let Danny Wozniak know he was referred to as an Old Time Republican. I’m sure he would say thank you. As for the other gentleman who spoke, sorry again, but I don’t know who that was.
But I did recognize him as an unhappy resident as many of them are.


I would hope that you would know that I would never say those things about the Public Works Building and if I have some concern I would call you or catch you after a meeting when we have talked before. And if you still have any doubt you know you can call me,

By the way, thank you for taking care of the overhang on Wisconsin Street and alerting Jack to the potholes. I will be sure to go down to the residents and let them know you took care of it and so quickly.

The comments that Bill wrote are below. Judge for yourselves. And again feel free to contact me. I do wish that person would at least say it’s not me even if they want to remain anonymous. But it is so easy to hide behind computers.

I know you are all so busy as I am and all I can ever do is sigh and keep going. It takes the patience of Job.

Continue with these public displays if you wish, Bill, but I will not respond to either you or that paper over these comments outside of this email. That article is not from today, so how long do they allow those comments to keep going? By the way, at the time those comments were posted I was at work and we are not allowed to surf unless we are at lunch and I don’t take lunches at 2 pm when I leave at 4.

Best Regards,

Pat Schultz and yes, I’m one of many that live in Old Town.

Bill, I guess the lady that spoke last night was right when she said that you need HELP!
This isn’t about Republicans, Paul Humpfer or anything else other than you.
You seem intent on avoiding the issue. At last night’s meeting the same lady said that you told Bob Cole “to just throw it on the ground”. He instead kept it till the next morning, when he gave it to the village manager.
What happened with it from there is still in question. What is obvious is that you are good at avoiding questions (supoena) when it might require telling the TRUTH!
Anyone that has either seen you at board meetings, read blogs, seen you on you tube or met you in person know YOU HAVE NO SENSE OF REALITY!
You dont have carpentersville in your best interest,only your own,that is why you constantly bring politics into the picture,yet you always state “it’s not political” B S Bill.
We old timers are not stupid.We are not happy with your ideas.We dont need a new public works facility, we need more street and sewer repairs, storm water management,etc.,not purchasing of overpriced,worthless property.
Oh, by the way, whayever happend about the “GREEN OOZE”. Hope you remember that(NOT) .

Welcome: Pat Schultz-
For those who don’t know Pat Schultz, she is a Republican Precinct Committeeperson from Old Town. Of course this isn’t about politics is it Pat?
We don’t need a Public Works Facility? Now that proves you have NO common sense or any sense of what is best for our Village. Last night’s public comments were a joke. You guys even brought out some of the really old time Republicans from Carpentersville to harp about the Village and give “fake praise” to the “volunteers” who are cutting the grass one house at a time. That was the same stratagy that has failed this Village for decades. That was how the streets/neighborhoods were neglected during those previous 40 years of Republican run administrations. You don’t have a clue as to what this Village needs. Your so called solutions are just more of the same bad thinking that has gotten Carpentersville into the mess it was in when I was elected. Pat you and your bunch have NO VISION. It truly is the blind leading the blind.
So, you think it’s “ok” to leave millions of dollars of Public Works equipment sitting outside, which only shortens the life of that equipment. Pat, please don’t think, it hurts the team.

I don’t know what happened to the subpoena. You told me that the Village Manager had it. Pat, why would I lie about this. What’s the BIG deal. All this is another attempt to draw out the inevitable. So, I testify to the FACT that I have no relationship with Judge Hallock and have had no contact with him, then what happens, does Humpfer finally go to jail? I wouldn’t hold my breath. Not is this County.

If Humpfer and his attorney are so eager to get me into court why wasn’t I served last night at the Village board meeting or before or after. So where is the lie? I have NOTHING to hide. I would be pleased to share the TRUTH with the court. But, first, I must be served. Do you think they can do that the right way? I don’t.

Have a good day Pat.

Old Towner– a.k.a. Pat Schultz,

I thought YOU knew where the paper is. Read your own posted comment. Have you forgot that Manager Anderson has it. At least that’s what you commented. I have no idea where it is. You seem to know more about this than I do. Perhaps that’s because I don’t really care where the paper is. Why don’t you ask the “process server” what he did with it, if he truly was a process server. I have my doubts. A real process server would not have left a subponea on anyone’s car. That is NOT proper service. Ask anyone who knows, they will tell you. I hope he didn’t bill Humpfer for this shoddy work. Even Humpfer deserves better than that.


Well, there you have it, just the facts. We have nut running our Village, who wants to post on blogs at all hours, like his favorite hours of 1am, 2am and 3am, no wonder he sounds so incoherent, he’s sleep deprived.

Just a warning King Sarto, watch out for those squirells!

Just my thoughts,

Public Works Director Bob Cole grabs and destroys subpoena that was served to King Sarto!

Carpentersville Public Works Director Bob Cole had “no comment” to his alleged actions at last Tuesday night, prior and after of the Village Board Meeting.

After the Village Board Meeting, both King Sarto and Public Works Director Bob Cole walked out together to King Sarto’s vehicle. Then, which many of us find quite queer, Mr. Cole decided to take the subpoena that was served to Mr. Sarto [which he refused to accept and the process server left the subpoena under his wiperblade on the windshield] and took the subpoena with him, with out giving it to Mr. Sarto. Hmmmmm, where that subpoena went, is the REAL MYSTERY!

Did King Sarto ordered Public Works Director Bob Cole to take that subpoena and hide and/or destroy it?

I’m sure both Bob Cole and Bill Sarto will get their stories straighten out by the end of the holiday.

But, can we blame Public Works Director Bob Cole of being a personal maid to King Sarto? After all, King Sarto has already purchased a over-priced piece of property, so he can build a overpriced Public Works Building on the old Tamarac property.

Is this a new conspiracy, which now includes staff? Shall we call it the new…WATERGATE? This should be a appropriate name, since our village wants to raise our water bills, faster than the rate of inflation. But, if you think that our tax rate is going through the roof, just wait and see how fast our tax rate will go up, when Public Works Director Bob Cole gets his shiny new multi-million dollar Public Works Building to make life easier for his employees. Who knows, King Sarto might throw in a new ICEMAKER MACHINE for the shiny new building. After all, some of us remember the ICEMAKER MACHINE fiasco, during the Boettger regime.

So Bob, what happened with the subpoena, did it land on your desk, garbage can or back on Sarto’s desk?

Just my thoughts,

King Sarto aka Tax & Spend

King Sarto now wants to “tax and spend” us into prosperity, really no kidding. At his re-election blog he says that with his plan, we’ll pay no or little property taxes like, Rosemont and Schaumburg in the future. Sure and we’ll have our streets paved in gold and will have a new multi-million dollar Public Works building. On top of that, he proposes to detach Carpentersville from the Dundee Township Park District and form a new layer of bureaucracy in Carpentersville! According to King Sarto, he can not only do it cheaper, but better!

Now listen up boys and girls, it’s time to open our wallets, purses and piggy banks and hand over that hard-earned money and hand it over to King Sarto and his vision of the future. You see folks, Sarto says that it shouldn’t be considered a tax…nope, he calls it, “investing.” If we just follow his scheme, we all can look forward to no or little property taxes, like the families who live in Rosemont and Schaumburg.

Let’s see boys and girls, Carpentersville has the third highest tax rate in Kane County. Right now, we have to take out Bonds [which have to be repaid through property taxes] and King Sarto wants to build a shiny new building with all the bells and whistles [many millions of dollars] and he wants Carpentersville to split from Dundee Township Park District and form another layer of bueaucracy

Go to King Sarto’s re-election blog www.carpentersville.wordpress.com for his latest brainstorming spending idea. There you’ll see his political buddy and Algonguin resident, Dave “campaign sign stealer” Reece, gushing with praise over the investment that King Sarto wants to do for Carpentersville
