His opposition Terry Patton has allowed Municipal theft, Voter fraud, and repeated violations of Illinois State Laws but now wants to be a Judge. Patton has not earned the right to be a judge based on his disregard for Illinois law. ELECT MICHAEL WASSELL for a fair hearing no matter what your last name is.

Former Cleveland mayor files lawsuit seeking to leave village

|The former mayor of the village of Cleveland has asked a Henry County circuit court judge to order the de-annexation of his property from the village. Since January, Jimmy R. White has been seeking to de-annex his property from this village of fewer than 200 people. Mr. White lost the 2013 mayoral election to current Mayor Richard Waterman. The village board has taken no action on Mr. White’s request but recently had village attorney Graham Lee write to Mr. White’s attorney, John Ames, stating the village wants reimbursement for a portion of $28,000 spent to raise Jackson Street, where Mr. White lives. According to the letter, $15,000 went directly to improve the entrance to Mr. White’s property. The letter states the paving and repairs and building up of the road was done by Mr. White alone, and that the village board never approved or authorized the work. However, according to Dispatch archives, the Jackson Street improvements passed 4-3 on July 12, 2008, with Mayor White casting the deciding vote. On Thursday, current Cleveland Mayor Waterman confirmed that, since the board’s June meeting, he had heard there was a 3-3 vote on the Jackson Street work and Mr. White cast the tie-breaking vote as former mayor. He added that, if he had known about the 2008 vote, he would not have supported Mr. Lee’s letter. “I was going by what the board members said,” he said. “I believe the only board member still on was Steve (Ballegeer).” Mayor Waterman also said he believed the village didn’t have all proper documents in place from the Federal Emergency Management Agency and, “probably” the Army Corps of Engineers, to raise the part of Jackson Street. “I’m not sure I’m right because I don’t have the papers in front of me,” he said. “The corner was elevated. It used to flood real bad.” Mr. Lee’s letter to Mr. Ames said that if Mr. White dropped his petition to de-annex, the attorney believed the village would drop its reimbursement request. Mr. White’s suit, filed July 18, said de-annexation of his two parcels would not isolate any part of the village, adversely affect its growth prospects or zoning ordinance, or disrupt village services. It stated typical real estate taxes for his parcels, payable to the village, are $221.69. No date has been set for any court action.|
Cleveland Lost one of it’s longtime residents. Our condolences to the family of Wayne Stohl that Passed away Sunday 13 July 2014.
Davenport 2nd ward alderman Bill Edmond told Jim on the Jim Fisher Show today:
Davenport Mayor Bill Gluba told the Civil Rights Commission, when asked about our Marine held in a Mexican jail. “ I DON’T CARE ABOUT THAT MARINE, I care about the children coming across the Border”( illegals) Don’t spend one dime in Davenport, Iowa until he resigns. Do the Veterans in Davenport agree with Bill Gluba? If not let that piece of crap know about it. He don’t care about a Marine in a Mexican Jail, but wants to bring diseased illegals from Mexico to Davenport by the bus load. Mayors office phone: (563) 326-7701
The Village of Cleveland is falsely claiming Jim White enhanced his own property and now wants out of the Village. “Mayor” Richard Waterman now wants to enhance his property by abandoning Charles Street, after saying last month he wants to resign as Mayor. Both were discussed at last night’s Board Meeting. So the Board Falsely claims Jim White did it, and it’s a problem, but it’s OK if Waterman does it. CAN YOU SAY HYPOCRIT? And trustee “Carpenter Dan” Boggs Resigned after one month as Building inspector because Trustee Leo Henkelman wouldn’t support giving Boggs $400 per month as a retainer for the job. Is it really about being responsible or is it about continuing a Board sanctioned vendetta against the former Mayor White?
Looks like Gary Sides isn’t cutting the Village grass anymore. It’s starting to look nice again. The gentleman from Maple Street is doing a great job keeping it that way. Even mowed the Village grass around Jim and Linda Whites mailbox. Nice to see the Board sanctioned Vendetta by Sides doesn’t affect the man from Maple Street. He just cares that it looks nice. (Gary Sides is second best AGAIN) Trustee Sherri Krogman did volunteer to do mowing the right way too, and yes she is Qualified to run the equipment, But “Mayor” Richard Waterman won’t give her a key to the garage so she can. Other volunteers can get a key but a trustee can’t? Maybe Waterman was too drunk to remember he said he would give her one
DISBAND COLONA PARK BOARD

So Cleveland Treasurer Lisa Sides is back to her old tricks again huh? Village Mail is being hidden from certain members of the Village Board. She did the same thing before as Village Clerk/Treasurer. SOME Trustees (Including Steve Ballegeer) got to see it right away. But the Mayor and other Trustees only saw the mail (and treasurers reports and minutes) at the last minute at a board meeting if at all, then votes were taken on the information that the “right” Trustees had the chance to review first. The others had to wing it on the spot. Can Waterman stop it? Not a chance. They worked hard to get him in as Mayor so there was a pushover in the Mayors office. Now that he’s there he’s being treated like a mushroom “Feed him a bunch of S— and keep him in the dark.”
