Hayes is from that good old boys club. Chicago style politics at it’s best. A lot of residents, both Republican and Democrat feel he has a ethics issue. The business community and residents can no longer survive and afford to live in Arlington Heights. The damage is done, but Hellner can start fixing the issues and make local government free of nepotism and unfriendliness. Say no way to Hayes.

Hayes told the 6290 residents in Arlington Hts who signed the Shadow Project petition back in 1997 that it met nothing. Trustee's make the rules in town, not you.

Ron Drake for Mayor Big Rally will be this Sunday April 7th at 6pm at his campaign office located just south of the Village Hall on Arlington Hts. Road. Music, Food and Mr. Drake

The benefit of term limits is more people get experience and can contribute to their community. The problem of not having them is that those who are perpetually in office lose touch with reality. They essentially get addicted to their positions and feel they are irreplaceable.

Ron Drake had a big interview today with ABC. Watch it on the news.
