Should Bloom 206 Superintendent Be Donating to Mayor's Campaign Fund?

Using money from school pop machines, Glen Giannetti bought tickets to men-only smokers hosted by the South Chicago Heights mayor.

Bloom Trail High School donated to the South Chicago Heights mayor's political campaign fund for the last four years, according to State Board of Elections records, giving at least $200 to "Citizens for Dave Owen" every January since 2008.

This year, the amount increased to $250.

Bloom Township High School District 206 Supt. Glen Giannetti told Patch he made the contributions to "Citizens for Dave Owen" on behalf of the district administration, pulling the cash from the quarters and dollars teen-agers and faculty deposit into the high school vending machines.

"We buy their smoker tickets," Giannetti said. "I usually buy two tickets from Mr. Owen because he is an advocate for District 206."

The men's only "smoker" is an annual fundraiser, at which guests receive "a steak dinner, drinks, cocktails and a chance to win $3,000," according to Owen. Every tenth guest also receives $100.

Giannetti said the fundraiser donations are not taxpayer dollars. He also said the campaign money isn't actually donated by —even though that's the donor name listed in State Board of Elections records. Giannetti said the donations come from the office of the superintendent.

"I don’t even go. I just buy the tickets," Giannetti said. "But it’s definitely not taxpayers' money. We would never use taxpayer money to support political regimes."

Legal authorities and a campaign finance advocate say these donations are highly suspect, yet differ on whether vending machine revenue is considered "public funds" under state statute.

Giannetti may have broken the law if the money is considered "public funds."

Cook County Assistant State's Attorney Karyn Stratton said there are questions here that must be answered.

"The first thing you have to know is who owns the pop machines. Is there a contract with the school district? It also matters what the contract says as far as any kind of plot on the funds," Stratton said.

Stratton said if the district is indeed making money from the pop machines, that money is meant for the public.

"They say they’re not taxpayer funds," Stratton said, "but income to a school district is still public funds."

Pop Money vs. Taxpayer Money

has had a vending machine contract with Pepsi since 2006, making between $14,000 and $17,000 in net revenue each year from machines used by students and faculty, according to the school district's state budget documents.

Giannetti said the money being contributed to Citizens for Dave Owen is from a fund that's separate from taxpayer funds.

"The money that is accrued is in the discretionary areas of the superintendent," Giannetti said in an e-mail. "I bargain with the companies on what percentages of money they will return to the district. ... We use it for numerous entities that are in the district and some that are not."

Giannetti said he spends plenty of the money on students.

"I give a little to the chess club, to the Mathletes, to the transition kids out at Bloom Trail. It's incentive money to help keep the students on track."

Mark Greven, legal counsel for the State Board of Elections, said Giannetti's and Owen's actions are unusual.

He's not sure they're illegal, however.

"I don’t see any direct election code violation," Greven said, pointing to the fact Giannetti used pop-machine money as being a key element. "It would be one thing if they were general funds appropriated by the state government, but they’re not."

Greven said the only law Giannetti could be violating is Illinois State Election Code, Sec. 9-25.1, which states:

No public funds shall be used to urge any elector to vote for or against any candidate or proposition, or be appropriated for political or campaign purposes to any candidate or political organization.

But the same section defines "public funds" as "any funds appropriated by the Illinois General Assembly or by any political subdivision of the State of Illinois."

Quarters and dollars from a pop machine don't fit that definition, although Greven said he still has plenty of questions for Giannetti and Owen.

"I can’t imagine any scenario where a school district would want to list themselves as a contributor to a political campaign," Greven said. "An argument could be made that the revenue is revenue that belongs to a government entity, and that the revenue is being used to help fund a political campaign."

Why Donations May Be Illegal

David Morrison, deputy director of the Illinois Campaign for Political Reform, believes Giannetti has broken the law.

"It’s illegal," said Morrison, "if (the money) was generated on school property for school resources. You cannot use that money on candidates. You cannot use public resources for political resources."

Morrison cited Section 5-15 of the 2003 Illinois Ethics Act, which reveals several political activities state employees are prohibited to do on State time, including: 

Soliciting contributions, including but not limited to the purchase of, selling, distributing, or receiving payment for tickets for any political fundraiser, political meeting, or other political event.

Later, in the same section of the Act, the State prohibits employees from "making contributions on behalf of any candidate for elective office in that capacity or in connection with a campaign for elective office."

Perhaps a school district superintendent isn't considered a state employee, but the district is a government entity, and Sec. 70-5 of the Act accounts for that as well, stating:

Within 6 months after the effective date of this Act, each governmental entity other than a community college district, and each community college district within 6 months after the effective date of this amendatory Act of the 95th General Assembly, shall adopt an ordinance or resolution that regulates, in a manner no less restrictive than Section 5‑15 and Article 10 of this Act, (i) the political activities of officers and employees of the governmental entity and (ii) the soliciting and accepting of gifts by and the offering and making of gifts to officers and employees of the governmental entity.

Morrison said he believes vending-machine profits should be considered "public funds."

"If (the vending machines) are plugged into the school’s outlet, if the license from the bottling company is through the school, those are public funds," Morrison said.

You Scratch My Back ...

Owen admitted to having a friendship with Giannetti, through his son as well as through former South Chicago Heights Mayor Donald Prisco.

“I’ve known Glen for years," Owen said. "My son played basketball for him. I certainly knew him from the last mayor. His wife is Prisco’s daughter. I can’t remember if I went to the wedding or not.”

Asked if he found it strange that records showed Bloom Trail High School had been sending him campaign money, Owen gave a simple answer.

"I don’t even see the checks when they come in," Owen said, adding that he does not handle that aspect of the campaign.

Owen also said he couldn't be sure whether Giannetti regularly attends the smoker. “I have like 20 ticket sellers," Owen added. "They see the people. We just mail the tickets to certain people who have bought them in the past. I don’t know if they come or not."

Giannetti said part of the reason he's been contributing to Owen's political campaign is payback for South Chicago Heights providing a service to Bloom Trail.

"The reason why Mayor Owen is receiving that money is we’re actually running Chicago water to Bloom Trail through South Chicago Heights," Giannetti said. "Now, even though they (South Chicago Heights) make money from that, it just shows how he’s an advocate for us."

But campaign money is the wrong way to return a favor, according to Morrison.

"A lot of times we hear, ‘They did something for me,’ so I felt obligated to do something for them," Morrison said. "But you cannot use money generated for the school district to support candidates."

The Crime of Bad Judgment

According to Illinois State Election Code, a single violation of Sec. 9-25.1 is a Class B misdemeanor. Multiple offenses are classified as a Class A misdemeanor.

An official from the Illinois Attorney General's office also cited Election Code Sec. 9-25.1 as the possible violation, but said an accurate assessment couldn't be made based on what's known.

Regardless, Greven said he's never seen a political campaign list a school district as a contributor.

"I think what’s going on here is some poor judgment," Greven said. "I have a bad taste when it comes to a school district taking money from any source and using it for a political contribution."

Giannetti insists the school pop machine money is free and clear for the administration to dole out as it sees fit.

"The money is on the grounds of being discretionary," the superintendent said. "We won’t pay salaries, we won’t just give cash to anyone, we use this money for those who put our district on a pedestal. ... The money is in a separate fund and we use it for incentives."

"I cannot comprehend the problem."

The Marchegiana dinner is run by the Marchegiana Society - has nothing to do with Dave Owen. However, I'm not really sure that the possible "men only" aspect of the smoker is the important point in this story. This story is not about the smoker, and it has nothing to do with Frank Perez or the Chicago Heights Park District or municipal government. The problem is the fact that the man with his hand on the purse strings at District 206 decided that his students' lunch money should be used to support his buddy's political war chest. It literally makes me sick to my stomach to see people like this in charge. As Mr. Owen noted, Mr. Giannetti gained political prominence by marrying into the family of former mayor Prisco, who went to prison on corruption charges. Mr. Giannetti seems to be carrying on that family tradition quite well.
Mick May 24, 2011 at 02:30 AM
I never said Owen had anything to do with the Marchegiana. My friend goes to both, and maybe he has the crowd mixed up. Maybe Lisa Aprati was not at the Owen dinner, but he said it is not men only-it doesn't say that on the ticket & women have been there. I was correcting my previous statement. It is not the important point. It has nothing to do with Perez, but we are just wondering why so much is made of Giannetti's $200 error in judgment, but the Park District buying about $400,000 in cleaning supplies without bidding is dismissed when the city officials say, "we didn't know." Giannetti didn't know, so he must be innocent, by that logic. It wasn't lunch money, it was money donated by Pepsi. Again, you have so much to say about everything, but when it comes to these cleaning supplies, you remain silent. That's the issue Mr. Paicely. Mr. Giannetti's $200 gaffe is rectified by what Mr. Lahey says, paying it back. Will Perez give it back? Why doesn't that make you sick to your stomach? Do you really judge people by their family members? If someone's brother is dealing drugs, does that make him a drug dealer? You shouldn't have brought that up. Oops!
Winston Wolf May 24, 2011 at 02:54 AM
Mick: I'm done talking about the smoker/Marchegiania dinner. I clarified your question and the difference between that event and Owen's smoker. Nobody cares whether the event(s) are gender-integrated or not. You are using that detail to obscure the malfeasance that has been uncovered. I am not sure why you are so willing to excuse Mr. Giannetti's "error in judgement". There are questions raised here that need to be answered. The record is clear - the superintendent utilized his students' loose change in order to support a political ally. That money is not "donated by Pepsi". It legally belongs to School District 206, and Mr. Giannetti is responsible for it. The fact that he used it to fill the campaign coffers of a friend is grounds for dismissal. He should immediately step aside, or the board should dismiss him. Perhaps then the district would be saved from further humiliation. If he is this brazen with district funds, who knows what else may be uncovered? I encourage the State's Attorney to pursue this case, up to and including prosecution!
jason amos May 24, 2011 at 03:31 AM
As long as the States Attorney is invited for that have them stop at city hall?
jason amos May 24, 2011 at 03:37 AM
Chris I will be in touch with you I have some good info for you regarding Park district wrong doings,along with connections to other people with political jobs or seats.
Mick May 24, 2011 at 04:02 AM
You cannot clarify something I was already clear about. I agree the men-only line is something no one cares about, but it made the article, so your beef is with the editor. A $200 malfeasance has you so riled up! Again, you dodge the cleaning supplies issue. $200 versus $400,000? You are not worked up at all about the park district buying $400,000 in cleaning supplies, but want to can Giannetti for a minute fraction of that. You feign indignation, but your arguments scream that you have a different agenda. I think the State's Attorney should start at the Park District, because $400,000 in no-bid contracts is a huge sum of money, not loose change, and bidding is required by law, and $200 spent by funds donated by Pepsi is a small amount of money and authorities in the article were not sure if it was illegal to donate to a campaign. The authorities are not going to waste their time on such a small matter. If Giannetti donates $200 back to the school, will you donate $400,000 back to the Park District? The district's humiliation was that first board meeting full of favoritism and nepotism garnished with the race card. Take your Unity Party blinders off for a second, breathe deep, and look at things objectively. Your Unity Party cheerleading routine needs a good wash. You are like those Cub fans who yell that they are the greatest team ever, but they haven't won a world series in over 100 years. We don't share your enthusiasm.
Winston Wolf May 24, 2011 at 12:37 PM
I have no information on any Park District dealings. If an article is written about the PD, I will address it at that time if it's worth commenting. Right now I am narrowly focused on this article and on getting Mr. Giannetti out. Maybe if he had been with the Unity Party, Jason and Mick would be helping me out.
Arthur W. Wiggins Jr. May 24, 2011 at 01:43 PM
Anything written by a person that chooses to use an anonymous/factious name holds absolutely no credibility. Even if revealed after using it for any significant amount of time, credibility is diminished. Regardless of your "focus" , your political agenda is clear. Good government any where offers and encourages transparency. Mick makes a very important point concerning persons that misappropriate. Intention is what will establish whether or not he is prosecuted and or convicted. $3 - $4 hundred thousand dollars over any period of time is much more worth the prosecution effort rather than $200 yearly for 4 or 5 years.
Nicole C. May 24, 2011 at 02:24 PM
Winston Wolf you crack me up with your dramatics. "Betrayed", seriously? I am a 206 parent, and have a long history with the school. That money is used for so much more, focusing on a small donation is childish. Yes, I will admit that it is questionable, but to stir such a ruckus, Unneccesary. Do you know that Mr. Owens is the only mayor surrounding Trail that offered to help the school connect to good water? Do you know that good old Ford Heights (where our new Board President is from, and all his loyal Reverends) wanted to charge the school RENT to hook up to the water that they get for FREE? Bash, bash, bash, is all you Unity Supporters do. I for one am tired of it. Maybe people like you and everyone else involved in Chicago Height's new PARTY are so loud and blowing out your bumholes to distract. Like the man above me said , you LOVE to ignore issues others question...Hey, open your eyes, spend your energy involving yourself actively in stuff. Then when you give an opinion it will be respected because maybe proof of research will reflect in your words, instead of the high and mighty opinions you spew now. "the board needs to convene a special meeting", yeah, but not for the removal of our Superintendant, but rather for the removal of our uninformed, uneducated, lying "NEW" President, and members elect!
Winston Wolf May 24, 2011 at 02:54 PM
Arthur, anyone who writes poorly and uses simple words (see: "factious" when you probably mean "fictitious") incorrectly also demeans his or her own credibility. Your complaints about the Park District have nothing to do with the story on which we are commenting.
jason amos May 24, 2011 at 03:21 PM
Winston,I would create my own. Party and sell my soul before I became any part of the UN Unity Party.
Arthur W. Wiggins Jr. May 24, 2011 at 03:37 PM
I am glad you were able to understand my typo. If you think your poor writing skills have went unnoticed, well just because we do not mention it does not mean it was not noticed. Nor does your poor understanding of what substantiates good government go unnoticed. Normally I just quit commenting to you, because it is obvious that whatever drives you has no connection to Kantian ethics. I am Arthur W. Wiggins Jr., not Tom and Jerry, not Steve Austin, not yabba daba do; My credibility lays in what I say and able to defend under my legal given name, regardless of typos. I have no complaint about about the park district here, like anything concerning Stare Decisis, many things outside of this article's topic are relevant. Just because Glenn Gianetti did something inappropriate, does not make it or him in any form sui generis, my mentions of the park district is completely comparative. It is easy to sit and type when you have no accountability..... much different when people know who you are.
Nicole C. May 24, 2011 at 04:24 PM
Arthur, Winston onlyresponds with bullying words because he has no other form of argument and once again wants to skirt around things....I try not to comment on him either because he is so easy to bash and criticize it wouldn't be fair.
Arthur W. Wiggins Jr. May 24, 2011 at 04:55 PM
Nicole C., Thanks for your support. Winston Wolf is simply a disingenuous person fill with insults. Glen Giannetti used money that appears in every way that it should have been reinvested in the school system. There are plenty of misappropriation of funds happening in our City. I do not understand how an misappropriation as in-significant as $200 or $250 over 4- 5 years overshadow Thousands and hundred of thousands of dollars for any amount of time.
Christopher Paicely (Editor) May 25, 2011 at 08:01 PM
Jane, I deleted your comment, only because you gave the name and home address of someone. If you would like to repost your comment without the personal information of any individual, that would be fine. Thanks for visiting Chicago Heights Patch.
Jane May 26, 2011 at 12:02 PM
I have been following the story and comments reguarding Superintendent spending. I say where Chris Paicely posted that he would look into any leads... There has been something bothersome to me for quite some time. I did not know who I could contact to investigate this. One of my neighbors works for BTHS in the maintenance department. This guy has a car port with five spaces. Not one but TWO of these spaces are occupied full time by BTHS vehicles. Seven days a week 365 days a year. I have seen him using these vehicles on all days of the week including in Indiana on Sunday. These vehicles are easy to identify as they have the BTHS logo on the side. One is a Chevy Tahoe the other a white pick up truck. He also has a large white box truck that I belive is property of BTHS also. Someone needs to look into this. Some of the neighbors talk and also say he gets a tax break on the $350,000+ property because he has it zoned as aggricultural. It is not. The neighbors on this block are taxpayers to the Bloom school district and feel that it is unnessary for this man to be driving around in TWO BTHS vehicles. He also has a hummer and cadalic not to mention the equipment he brings home on the weekends for personal use. This situation is very botersome as a taxpayer. Any light you can bring to the subject would be wonderful.
Winston Wolf June 10, 2011 at 12:30 PM
Chris, is there any news on this? I would like to know if the State's Attorney or the School Board will be moving forward with action to rectify this situation. Thanks!
Christopher Paicely (Editor) June 10, 2011 at 03:50 PM
Hey Winston, I contacted the State's Attorney's office for follow-up purposes about a week ago, but haven't heard anything definitive yet. The school board has met since this information came out, but according to one of the board members, it was about a separate matter. I'll keep digging and keep everyone posted if any new info comes out.
Mick June 14, 2011 at 04:11 AM
And after you are done with the $250 matter, continue with Winston's areawide look into corruption and see if anyone is following up with the park district purchasing almost $400,000 in cleaning supplies without putting them out to bid. Why is Perez' firm winning these contracts of all the firms out there? On behalf of Winston, I beg you to continue his pursuit to clean up things. Maybe the State's Attorney's office is going in order of dollar amounts, high to low, and it will be some time before they get to a $250 dinner ticket. Winston wants this town to be squeaky clean, and on that we agree. Not to wax philosophically, but it is time to brush our differences aside, sweep the favoritism out, bag the garbage, and choose politicians who are clean and polished. We need to start with wasted dollars before we go to wasted pennies. Winston's not just obsessed with 206, but wants the whole area dusted for corruption.
Christopher Paicely (Editor) June 14, 2011 at 10:25 AM
Mick, As I've said before, there's nothing I won't at least look into. I appreciate your concern about the way government entities spend taxpayer dollars. I know the Southtown reported on this particular matter in the past, and a few things have changed since then. If I come across any new information, I'll post it ASAP.
Winston Wolf June 14, 2011 at 12:53 PM
Mick, I would respectfully ask that you not put words in my mouth. You have stated in the past that you don't even live in Chicago Heights, so I don't know why you are so interested in the Park District's janitorial supplies. It seems that most of the people with whom you have a problem - including a Certified Public Accountant and a Staff Sargent in the United States Army - are Latinos. I hope that's just a coincidence, and not the sign of something darker in your personality. Perhaps you were one of Mr. Faso's target audience during the campaign - eager to believe that anyone with Mexican heritage is involved in criminal activity. As an out-of-towner, I know that you have no personal stake in the matter, so your motives intrigue me. I believe you do live in District 206, so the possible misappropriation of students' lunch money seems that it should be a concern for you. When I glance at the numbers and see that 85% of the district's students are of Latino or African-American descent, I again shake my head and wonder whether your motives are pure. You are correct in stating that Casey Toner "reported" on the "issue" of the cleaning supplies. Young Mr. Toner is very plainly a poor reporter. It is apparent that Mr. Lopez's political opponents fed Mr. Toner bogus information in an attempt to smear the administration. The story amounted to nothing, which is why no further stories have been published since the original.
Mick June 15, 2011 at 03:53 AM
The race card? Yawn. zzzzzz Corruption is corruption, no matter the color. I would assume that if you are obsessed in a $250 matter, you would be interested in one for $400,000. Let's reverse your game. Seems like you are against Faso and Giannetti, both who happen to be Italian. I hope that is not a sign of something darker in your personality. You are the one who implied Giannetti had Prisco as a relative; therefore, he must be a crook, and are downright indignant when Faso implies that Gonzalez' brother dealt drugs; therefore, he must be involved. Lunch money? That is your imagination. It was a donation by Pepsi. Then, you felt Toner was a tool, and he happens to be white. Are your motives pure? How do you like the inference you are a racist Mr. Wolf? I live in 206, and hate to see Chicago Heights claim 206. The City of Chicago Heights immediately put in 206 the same law firm that serves the Heights and Chicago Heights District 170. Coincidence? Again, Mr. Wolf, by your logic, one should not have an opinion on Libya, Guantanamo, Afghanistan, Iraq, Somalian pirates, Texas border issues, Arizona immigration laws, and gay rights laws in California since he doesn't live there. 206 is being hijacked by Chicago Heights, and that's why we are speaking out. P.S. I know you are not Perez, as he would have spelled it correctly as "Sergeant," and he would have said U.S. Army Reserve. The $250 story amounted to, well, $250.
Winston Wolf June 15, 2011 at 03:00 PM
As a Caucasian of European descent, I am not concerned about looking within myself for anti-white bias. I do seem to have struck a nerve with you, however.
Mick June 16, 2011 at 02:33 AM
Not really. The race card is usually played when the argument is lost. When kids lose an argument, they call someone names. The race card is a version of that. It's been overplayed, and people are a bit bored with it. Sorry about the pun, but it is crying wolf. I wonder how Jesse and Al feel about those Duke lacrosse players when the accuser turned out to be wrong. I wonder if they offered them scholarships. I would like to see Herman Cain be president, and the race card is in the hand of the other team, and people who criticize him are called racists. The card has lost its lustre. You mention that 206 is only 15% white, so I hate to see someone like you pound on the minority. I only used your words against you, so I probably struck a nerve with you. You can call me a Muslim, and I won't take offense, because I am not. Ditto with racist. I guess everyone here is a little tired of your selective rants. I never wrote anything negative about Gonzalez, and even Perez as a person. Just wondered why the city didn't bid its cleaning supplies and both the park district and city seem to buy from him when so many good companies are out there. You don't seem to care about that. That's your prerogative. I think $400,000 > $250 and am a little confused when someone cares about something so trivial, yet looks the other way when the matter is so glaringly against the law. I don't care about your race, just your consistency.
Winston Wolf June 16, 2011 at 04:16 PM
I have no connection with Al or Jesse, don't know anything about Herman Cain and have never given a thought to your religion. It seems clear that you are using those irrelevant topics to avoid looking within yourself to find the true root cause of your animosity towards the current diverse Chicago Heights leadership. In psychology it is a defense mechanism called "projection". Look into it. And if you have questions about the Park District's bid process, attend a meeting.
Mick June 18, 2011 at 03:13 AM
Your connection with Al and Jesse is the similar quick draw of the race card. You don't even know my race. I did not mention my religion-just was saying you can call me whatever, and if it's false, you are wasting your time and mine. Again, you are not good at conditional statement. No good at analogies. I have looked within myself, and find that I am honest, and wonder why you are so concerned about $250, and care less about $400,000. I have no animosity toward Gonzalez or Perez, but have no love for them: you, my friend, love them. You seem to dislike DeLuca, Giannetti, Faso, and everyone Italian, so are you projecting? Let's drop the race crap, ok? You rip on Giannetti over a $250 matter, and I on the Park District for giving Perez $400,000 worth of business without bidding it. That's it. Plain and simple. I just hate to see this space wasted on accusations of racism. Be consistent in your thirst for legality, or you appear to be on a personal witchhunt.
Winston Wolf June 20, 2011 at 01:27 PM
There were plenty of good Italian-Americans supporting the Unity Party and running on the ticket. You are correct in stating that Faso and Giannetti are not people I want to see in positions of influence, regardless of their racial or ethnic background. And I never said I dislike DeLuca. I think he's doing a pretty good job as a state representative. Politics should not be about liking or disliking people personally. There are no permanent friends or enemies in politics, only permanent interests. This story by Mr. Paciely was about Glenn Giannetti's actions. You are obviously a friend of his (I noticed you gave his biography in comments on another story), so I understand your tendency to defend him. Luckily you are not the State's Attorney nor are you on the school board, so hopefully personal relationships will not allow this man to continue using our children's lunch money to fill his friend's political war chest.
Mick June 20, 2011 at 04:01 PM
You are right Winston. You are always right. You can have the last word. I bow to your brilliance. You have me all figured out. The Unity Party should give you your gold medal now for crushing your inferior competition. You are the last man standing.
Mick June 23, 2011 at 03:57 AM
$400,000 > $250. It wasn't lunch money-you don't read well. There were plenty of good non Italian-Americans supporting Faso-your point? I mentioned Giannetti's father was a marine and that Giannetti worked his way up at 206. Doesn't make him a friend of mine knowing some things about him. I know Gonzalez is a CPA and that he is married--is he my friend, too? The story in the Star was about the Park District's actions-so? I know-I should go to a board meeting, but you state emphatically that Giannetti should be fired. Here it comes-if you are concerned, then go to a 206 board meeting. The Park District and City bought about $400,000 in supplies without bidding them, so luckily you are not the State's Attorney, or on the Park District board, so hopefully will not allow any mayor or park district superintendent to continue to purchase cleaning supplies from friends without bidding. Why does your logic apply to $25o, but not $400,000? Why am I a racist for questioning you, but you aren't for questioning me? I noticed you praising the city for concrete work, but you seemed to have missed the article where Giannetti replaced the old elevators at both schools with new ones. You are obviously not his friend, so I understand your tendency to attack him. Winston, please be consistent. And, must I go back to what you said about DeLuca's mayoralship during the election, hiring his wife and other things?
Winston Wolf June 23, 2011 at 03:29 PM
I thought you were done responding, Mick? It looks like we just have to agree to disagree on this one. As for Anthony's mayoralty, I call them as I see them. I think he is now a good state representative.
