After 32 years, it's time for a change. That's why the Journal & Topics Newspapers believes Rob Sherman deserves to be elected Buffalo Grove village clerk.

Sherman is passionate about changing government behavior and he would bring new life into a village that has seen more downs than ups over the last two years.

    You have got to be kidding!!! What dribble. I was waiting for the punch line, but it never came!!! Jan Sirabian is a woman of character, a woman of valor and someone that I hold in great esteem. I am very proud that she represents our wonderful village. I cannot say the same for Rob Sherman. You say, "If in four years he does not succeed, residents can vote for someone else." That is not a way to run a village. It seems to me we just went through that and I for one do not want to do it again. I encourage everyone to join me and vote on April 5th for Jan Sirabian. Let's keep Buffalo Grove the wonderful community that it is.

    So the editorial staff at the Journal Topics has drunk the kool-aid. Or is it something in the air at your offices? Your recommendation for Sherman as BG Village Clerk stinks. Some of the logic (if you can call it that) you use is ridiculous. Why would I vote for someone on a "test drive" basis and then say after it din't work out, "Oh well I guess I'll vote for somebody else in four years?" Didn't the citizens of BG show your dumb newspaper that we don't put up with elected officials for full terms if they don't perform? How can Sherman perform in the future when his past has been riddled with strange happenings such as, a distain for our justice sytem, jail terms, police reports (both on him and by him), bikini car washes (accompanied by his questionable comments), and women's lingerie seminars,etc. What a "fine"' person to put in elected office! When did you last see him him attend a BG meeting and have you paid attention when you attend BG meetings? I, for one, having been involved in the last BG recall don't want to go through another. Putting Sherman in office makes me worry about having to do that. Another reason for my concern is he stated he really doesn't want the job of Village Clerk. Both he and your newspaper scare me. I'm glad I voted for Jan Sirabian.

    Are you NUTS? Sherman has said on many occasions that he doesn't want the job of Clerk. He is only doing this for his pal, former Trustee Lisa Stone. Janet Sirabian is a great Clerk and is very passionate about the village. She also volunteers hundreds of hours a year to make Buffalo Grove a better place to live. What has Sherman ever done except file law suits against other governing bodies and beat up his son? This endorsement makes me ill and this is the last time I read this RAG!

    “That's why the Journal & Topics Newspapers believes Rob Sherman deserves to be elected Buffalo Grove village clerk.”

    I’m trying to figure out why the Journal and Topics is willing to gamble our Village Clerk office on someone like Rob Sherman. Does he “deserve to be elected Buffalo Grove village clerk” because he went to jail for issues relating to domestic violence? Does he “deserve to be elected Buffalo Grove village clerk” because he lies about his opponent on his website? Or, does he “deserve to be elected Buffalo Grove village clerk” because he has said on his own website that he doesn’t even want the job?

    The article goes on to say, “If in four years he does not succeed, residents can vote for someone else.”

    Well, that’s reassuring Journal and Topics. The Journal and Topics might be willing to give Rob Sherman a 4 year tryout, but I am not.

    One set of lost keys and one lost tape in a 32 years career is hardly reason to replace someone as respected in their field as Janet Sirabian is.

    Minutes are a record of action taken. If people want to see and hear more details (and they often do), anyone is free to view every Village Board meeting either on television, on the Village’s website, or by checking out a DVD at Village Hall. It doesn’t get much more transparent than that.

    The Journal and Topics might endorse Rob Sherman, but I do not. I strongly urge all of my fellow Buffalo Grove residents to join me in voting for the candidate with integrity, professionalism, an excellent record, and class.

    Janet Sirabian is the only candidate that “deserves” to be Village Clerk.
