KLEPT, why doesn't Welch's car have a current vehicle sticker? [H]



[UPDATE: I was wrong on this one. The Village of Hillside stopped requiring vehicle stickers on January 1, 2003. Therefore the evidence shows that Emanuel "Chris" Welch was in full compliance with the law.]
I took these pictures of a Mercedes I assume to belong to Emanuel "Chris" Welch. Inside the car Welch's District 209 photo ID was hanging from the rear view mirror.

I noticed that the most recent village sticker on the vehicle was from 2002.

Part of Welch's campaign for state representative has been attacking incumbent Karen Yarbrough for not doing enough to get more resources for schools. Welch's critics tend to respond by saying that Welch's words are meaningless and that he's in politics to help himself.

Welch is still a resident of Hillside according to his campaign filings. So I assume his car is registered at his Hillside address which means he probably didn't get a sticker for the last four years. Hillside gives a new sticker every year, right?

How strick is Hillside in enforcing vehicle sticker requirements? Is this something anyone can neglect? Or is it something where one has to get special treatment? Would a connected scofflaw have to ask for the favor? Or is it understood that Mayor Tamburino's cronies aren't to be charged normal taxes and fees?

  • that definately isnt right if he doesn't have a valid sticker. no one should be above the law!! but don't you think you are taking this a little far? that is just creepy that you are looking in his car, next thing you know you'll be prowling by his house, rummaging thru his garbage.

  • You mopes need to call the Village of Hillside. They got rid of the requirement to purchase stickers beginning in 2003. Carl you are a stalker!!! You need to be prosecuted for what you are doing to Welch you classless piece of crap.

  • Carl: Now you know what you are saying and doing is not right. This is nit picking because you don't have any real issues.

  • BTW, the car was parked closest to the door at a District 88 meeting. I locked my bike to the post next to the car. I didn't exactly go looking for this.

  • Cynthia, what constitutes a real issue?

    If Hillside discontinued it's village stickers program, obviously Welch has committed no foul.

    But if Welch is getting preferential treatment from the Village of Hillside, is this a legitimate issue?

  • Carl, To find out the real Truth, I suggest you call Patrick O'Sullivan, Clerk, Village of Hillside at 708-449-6450.

  • There is a voicemail recorded in the Deputy Clerk's voicemail box.

    In general government doesn't stop charging taxes, but I suppose it's possible.

  • Thanks for finding the link.

  • Now Carl, I believe you owe an apology to Mr. Welch and to Mayor Tamburino for making an unfounded allegation....

  • I suspected Carl wrote things before properly investigating them, and this entry certainly proves that point. This guy is biased and lacks credibility, and you need look no further than here to see that.

  • Sure, I'll apologize to Chris Welch and Mayor Tamburino. I'm sorry. My bad.

    I didn't consider the possibility Hillside did away with the vehicle sticker requirement.

    When's Welch going to apologize for filing a false lawsuit against me?

  • Carl, I somewhat agree, the photos of Welch's car and license plate no. is not, too, cool.

  • Carl:

    Stay home, twist a Rubic's Cube, watch your plants grow, make some tea...But please do not stalk people...your credibility went down the tubes. I think its funny what you did -- its a hoot.

  • So what, Welch had someone video taping Manzo and his kids. The true stalker is Welch. He is the sikco!
