F07, filings for Forest Park commissioner [FP]

As of 4 PM--an hour before the deadline--the following individuals had filed to run for commissioner in Forest Park. On February 27, 2007, there will be a primary. The top eight candidates will appear on the ballot for the general election in April. The top four vote getters will be seated as Forest Park’s commissioners in May.

* Hosty (incumbent)
* Curry
* Plepel
* Tellalian
* Hoskins
* Webster
* Scafidi
* Lazzara
* Nyberg

[UPDATE: I have checked and I was the last candidate to file.

[Also, I neglected to mention the candidates for mayor. The following candidates who had all announced their candidacies in the Forest Park Review filed to run.

* Calderone (incumbent)
* Doolin
* Jackson
* Steinbach

[End update]

[UPDATE2: Looks like Scafidi and maybe Jackson are off the ballot. See Forest Park Review (Josh Adams).]

    Well at least he would have a job of some kind.

  • I suppose Carl could just sit at a computer and anonymously post sarcastic remarks like you bbbwwwaaahhh and contribute nothing to his community. Or, he could put himself in the race and actually attempt to make a real contribution to his community. I think this is great Carl. Good luck to you. You have my vote!

    I can't believe it, Chris Welch and Tony Calderone both blogging on the insider! My, My, how do you guys get paid???
    I knew about Nicole Trottie working for the Insider and Don Sloan and Brian Cross, but now our Forest Park Mayor and he is working with Chris Welch?? Unimaginable!

Sloan and cross will be very busy,with there army of 89 and 209 janitors, working the field campaigns for Tony Calderone in Forest Park, working hard to beat Kelly and Flowers in 209, supporting the status quo in 89, working to beat Welch's opponenets in 88 and running the campaign for trustees in Westchester. Don Sloan plans to show Proviso that nobody can win without his support and army!

    I never trusted that Steinbach anyways, always felt she is an underminded person only trying to garner attention.

  • I doubt the e-mail thing ever happened, I have heard some really terrible stories about how Steinbach lies and doesn't even think twice about doing it.

    That is a very sad case when a person lies and does so to the level that they sue the village they are elected to.

  • naysayer, that's exactly the point...steinbach's m.o. is to lie to sow seeds of doubt. she has no ethics, no ideas, no clue about how to run government, and nothing to run on but lies about her opponent.

    By Anonymous huh, at 6:45 AM, December 22, 2006  

  • Calderone's mo, take care of your $friends$, quietly have someone else deal with your enemies, tell half truths let others assume the rest. He has taken pretend your listening with concern to new heights, it works.

  • Patrick Doolin was overheard after a few too many cocktails at Jimmy's Place telling Steve Johnsen how easy it will be to bury that fat c&#% in the election. I don't know what's worse, a woman who has no common sense or a bigoted sexist who hates anything that's not white and male. I hope they both lose so we can be rid of them for good, this town will be better off without them.

Shows over "Melrose" Tony. Laugh today because April will only bring tears for you. And they won't be tears of joy. Bye Bye for now ringmaster

  • I don't believe Calderone, Doolin or Steinbach would allow themselves to be overhead, at a public place, making nasty comments about the opposition. They are not that stupid. Nasty is reserved for a private audience, so quit the bs.

    The Melrose thing has long outlived it's usefull shelf life.

    That sorry story will not work anymore.

  • The Forest Park web board is a non-entity now. It's just that b#%^$ Pam Fontana complaining about everything in town. What a nasty nasty person. She rags about our cops and then wonders why she gets tickets. She thinks they should have a squad right on her street at all times to serve her every pathetic need. Get a life lady.

    As for Pat Doolin yapping at Jimmy's, he does it all the time. Johnsen too. Tony Steinbach, now that's funny. Jimmy the owner is just as bad. He plays nice with Terry Steinbach then tells everyone how much he hates her when she and her husband aren't there. He says it loudly too. "I hate that b^$#%. The only reason I deal with her is because I'm friends with Tony." That group are a bunch of back-stabbing jerks who deserve each other.

    And the foods not even great. It's the Olive Garden disguised as a hometown Italian restaurant. La Bella is sooooo much better and the food is fresher, much nicer quality.

  • It's hard to tell who is bashing who and who is supporting who.

    It seems to me to be good ole fashion mud slinging.

    To pick on candidates or elected people is one thing,,,, but to pick on their family is OUT OF BOUNDS.

  • Carl wants to hold the public trust, yet he can't even enforce his own blog rules:

    "3. Don't attack people with stuff that's personal, like their sex life, unless it is in some way relevant to their public persona. Just because you disapprove of a sexual practice...doesn't make it relevant."

    It takes away from the fact the Bertucci lied in his letter to the Review. Bust him on that.
