Opie you don't carry over term from one level of government to another. It's terms at that position. Plus ed was county board then Mayor so you not counting his? Plus you never answered the question on term limits! Do you think Illinois needs them? You are obviously a ed crony and will not point out his negatives which are many. Fact is he has to many and from what I am told at city hall, will not finish if he wins this one and hand over to a crony so they are Incumbant. That's bad practice. Plus I worked my hardest for ed his first term so don't start the I never liked him.
Besides unqualified economic developer he has many more. Unqualified inspectors, fire chiefs and others at city hall. Engineering work should be bids and not handed to one company and he failed his fiduciary responsibilities payment according to state actuary on pensions.
The theater was paid by TIF taxes and what do you think state money is but taxes? Either way it was tax money instead of a developer and it's continuing to cost the tax payer by not having a positive revenue stream. Look at the showplace 12! That is a successful theater. Plus ed looked the fool with Elliott Davis not even knowing what a feasibility study is!
If you can't see the quality of Edwardsville over GC than you are blind. Art sees the diversity in edwardsville and Glen and that's what's needed here! Not reliance on the mill like ed does.
Suncoke has a class action suit against them for polluting our town and we should be fining them. But he takes hybrid car bribe for him and his cronies and drops the issue. That's not caring for your town.
You want Arts plan? Get off your butt and go to his headquarters or call him. You aren't owed anything but to take the iniative and educate yourself.
But plan or not, term limits for mayor and alderman needed and most have far surpassed and time for replacement.
