We are proud to endorse Stephen box over incumbent Tom Labonge in the Race for Council District 04.
We have made this decision after careful review of Tom Labonge’s record against providing services equally and fairly to all residents.
His abuse of Public power, his disregard for legal contracts, his utter contempt for working people and his lack of knowledge about Public Works issues.
Stephen box is a breath of fresh air who understands the need to maintain the public infrastructure for everyone.
After so long in office he hasn’t learned a thing.
His lack of understanding of the Department of Public works and what works and why is shocking for as long as he has been in City Hall one would assume that he would have learned a thing or two, but sadly he turns to Chicago for ideas on how one should run public services.
In the video below you will see employees not of city forces, but of Tom Labonges office dumping at a city facility debris that was carried away at no charge for select homeowners who have the right connections
These items are the responsibility of the Department of Sanitation, however the employees dressed like City workers dump at a Street Maintenance facility, the cost to transport & dump these items come out of Street Services funds and result in fewer streets getting resurfaced and employees having to take furlough days resulting in more potholes and more trash in the streets.
Hollywood hills residents might care to know about his slashing of funds and furloughing workers resulting in overgrown vegetation, potholes, mudslides and other quality of life issues.
Finally great suspicion surrounds the installation of a traffic signal just feet away from his district office which had been completed for months yet not activated until after the campaign season began. The pressure city engineers were under from his office to approve the installation only a block from another traffic signal.
Shame on you Mr. Labonge for hiring high paid staff to cater to a select few carting away their trash at the expense of ALL city residents.
Is Corruption a good model to follow?
Tom Labonge gets his Public Works idea’s for running the second largest city in the country directly from the most corrupt city in the country Chicago, Mr. Labonge needs a lesson not only in Public Works 101 but a follow-up from the Ethics Commission!
Further adding to the mess better known as Tom Labonge, his ill advised Motion to transfer Street cleaning to the control of Sanitation shows how out of touch his thinking is.
Tom Labonge will only continue to fail the average resident as has been proven over the last year.
We hope you will give Stephen Box the chance to work for you as the next councilman of the 4th District.
Ron Kaye Chimes In
If we haven’t given you enough reasons to question a life long city hall insider who has little to show for all of those years milking the public Ron Kaye has a good article on Tom Labonge Carolyn Ramsay and their dirty smear tactics. Carolyn Koo-Koo Ramsay AKA CAROLYN MARY RAMSAY is busy earning over 80,000.00 a year and a fat pension while taking care of those well connected campaign contributors or as they like to call them these days constituents, but she took a break to email blast thousands of residents which Might be a violation of city ethics.
Tom is really earning his nickname Tom La-bozo these days!
