I totally agree with the recent BND editorial regarding the upcoming Fairview Heights mayoral election that encouraged voters to choose thoughtfully at the polls. Remember that candidate Mark Kupsky is joined at the hip with outgoing (finally) Mayor Gail Mitchell.
Mitchell aligned himself with the corrupt and discredited Democratic leadership of St. Clair County, and we can expect the same from Kupsky.
I fear once in office we will never be rid of him as he will become another bobblehead for the Mark Kern/Bob Sprague politcal bosses. We can’t forget when Mitchell needed a few votes to retain his seat in a previous election, the votes he needed magically appeared from his cronies at the county.
Never miss a local story.
