* Jason Plummer discusses his Metro East strip mall

“Since we purchased Monticello Plaza we’ve probably added about 12,000 square feet of new space with tenants who are opening and operating; we’ve signed another 30,000 square feet that we have signed leases on, but they’re not open yet,” said Midwest Asset Group owner Jason Plummer. “It’s good, but we’ve been fortunate to work with the village of Godfrey; it’s a great community.”

Pizza World and Russell Cellular, a Verizon store, occupy a new building added to the Monticello complex. Pizza World, owned by franchisee Dave Stafford of Godfrey, opened last week; Russell Cellular will open Monday. Each will have a ribbon cutting and grand opening in February.

Also opening next month at Monticello’s main and existing building is LAG Gaming, owned by Scott Hampton, and next door to the video game store will be a second location for Complete Supplements, owned by Matt Hamman, which has a Maryville store. A few months ago Apex, a physical therapy business, opened next door to the antique mall in Monticello.

Republican Illinois gubernatorial candidate Bruce Rauner officially opened his campaign office Saturday at Monticello Plaza with a grand opening in the afternoon when he spoke to the public. Rauner is a businessman from Chicago.

I’m told that Plummer donated the office space to Rauner’s campaign.

Have at it, kids.

    “I’m told that Plummer donated the office space to Rauner’s campaign.”

    It’s nice to see Bruce’s luck is turning around.

    Willie, log off. Nothing to see here.


  3. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Jan 28, 14 @ 12:30 pm:

    Rich!

    Are you and Plummer and Rauner in cahoots with my 3 doctors, my special cardiologist, my yoga instructor, life coach, the barista at the coffee stand and “Dave”, who I talk to for 45 minutes once a week about … well, we leave that all in the. “Exit Room”…

    I may need a moment, like “Dave” told me to take during times like this…

    (Looks at calendar, not ‘April 1′…)


  5. - Soccermom - Tuesday, Jan 28, 14 @ 12:33 pm:

    When people say “run government like a business” do they mean “give valuable stuff away for free to political cronies”?


  6. - Chavez-respecting Obamist - Tuesday, Jan 28, 14 @ 12:34 pm:

    Maybe Jason thinks Rauner will appoint him Illinois’ Ambassador to..I don’t know, Disneyworld?


  7. - hisgirlfriday - Tuesday, Jan 28, 14 @ 12:36 pm:

    Good to see the have-nots looking out for each other.


  8. - hisgirlfriday - Tuesday, Jan 28, 14 @ 12:38 pm:

    Which one of them claims the homestead exemption on the campaign office?


  9. - Plummet - Tuesday, Jan 28, 14 @ 12:38 pm:

    I believe the news here is that Plummer donated something to someone other than himself.


  10. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Jan 28, 14 @ 12:41 pm:

    @FakeJasonPlummer - it was kinda of a bummer giving up the space at the strip mall. I kept an offices there, one like my LG office shoulda been, pretending is fun #JustLikeBruce

    @FakeJasonPlummer - Bruce us cool. I got a Payton Prep sweatshirt and a brand new Carhartt #PropsNotThoseKindOfProps

    @FakeJasonPlummer - Good trade; Brucd gets the office space, Bruce teaches Dad about how to be really good at Clouting your kid. #FairTradeUnfairToOthers


  11. - Rich Miller - Tuesday, Jan 28, 14 @ 12:42 pm:

    Pizza World, vitamin supplement store, generic cell phone store and a video game store. Yes, a truly upscale shopping and dining experience. Rauner’s $18 watch will fit right in.


  12. - Almost the Weekend - Tuesday, Jan 28, 14 @ 12:42 pm:

    OW what do you think Plummer is getting out helping Rauner. Possible next SIU President nominee?


  13. - PoolGuy - Tuesday, Jan 28, 14 @ 12:44 pm:

    here’s some free office space where campaigns go to die, but I’ll throw in free pizza and fish oil pills.


  14. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Jan 28, 14 @ 12:45 pm:

    @FakeJasonPlummer - Dad wanted to pay for me to win. Dad shoulda just done what Bruce did and call the Congress principal for the seat. Denying the worthy is way cooler. Bruce Rocks! #FiniteSeatsHavePriceMenus


  15. - jim - Tuesday, Jan 28, 14 @ 12:45 pm:

    Is there something wrong — or even odd — about a businessman engaged in a business venture?
    what’s the issue?


  16. - Stones - Tuesday, Jan 28, 14 @ 12:49 pm:

    The only thing missing is a Currency Exchange.


  17. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Jan 28, 14 @ 12:50 pm:

    @FakeJasonPlummer - “Truth Time” - the office is for me and Slip and Sue, and me showin’ her Kool places to hide. Bruce is smart to ask me, I can be a hider like nobody and everything #BorderCounties #ExtraLiabilityInsurance

    @FakeJasonPlummer - Um, Bruce, State Farm called; Old mall liability insurance, $1 million, you and S&S, $17.6 million. What gives? #AmbulaceChasingLG #NeckBraces #LessonsToBeTaught


  18. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Jan 28, 14 @ 12:53 pm:

    @FakeJasonPlummer “I’d gladly match my experience up against anyone’s” See you at the Strip Mall, “Slip and Sue” #QuoteFinallyWorks #EvWorseThanMe


  19. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Jan 28, 14 @ 12:58 pm:

    @FakeSlipAndSue - Jason, I was wondering, has the sidewalk been repaved? It is snow and ice season #GuessEvWillOwnStripmallSoon


  20. - 47th Ward - Tuesday, Jan 28, 14 @ 1:00 pm:

    Jason Plummer heard there was big money to be made owning strip clubs so he went out and bought himself an entire strip mall.

    Keep an eye on that kid. He’s going places.


  21. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Jan 28, 14 @ 1:01 pm:

    @FakeJasonPlummer - Bruce is the Dad I never had. Bruce is going to Clout me into the One Direction concert. Dad makes me do chores first. #BruceHas7KidsNow


  22. - I'm Strapped - Tuesday, Jan 28, 14 @ 1:04 pm:

    Mr Rauner: If elected,can you verify your offices will be:
    1) Chicago
    2)Monticello Plaza, Metro East strip mall, Suite 101(next to the Carharrt front?)


  23. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Jan 28, 14 @ 1:12 pm:

    @FakeJasonPlummer - Uncle Bill just called. Sorry Unc, Mister Bruce promised me like an office and my Slurpee machine filled 24/7. #DonVonCarhartt #OfferJasonNeverRefuses #HmmSlurpees

    I am guessing Bruce promised Jason the Ensign Governor spot; not the Lt. Governor, but “LG in Training”, like a CIT at camp for Jason. Jason thought it was Kool.


  24. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Jan 28, 14 @ 1:15 pm:

    @FakeJasonPlummer - Bruce was shocked the. “3″ didn’t call for the space. Mister Bruce said he heard of me. #TooManyStringsToLease #BruceAsksRahmAboutMe

  27. - circularfiringsquad - Tuesday, Jan 28, 14 @ 1:26 pm:

    How about a video poker den aka Lucy’s Crib to round out the space?
    Maybe Daddy’s Little Deduction can hook up with Payton Place Philly ….what a couple


  28. - Rail Sitter - Tuesday, Jan 28, 14 @ 1:27 pm:

    @FakeJasonPlummer - asked Mister Bruce if I could call him Uncle Brucey. Asked me if I was - circularfiringsquad -. Guess that was a No.

    @FakeJasonPlummer - Mister Bruce got real sore when I asked if Payton Prep was like a football space camp Dad sent me to last summer. Mister Bruce told me to &$@#%*. Mister Bruce does know Rahm #DictionaryForBadWordsSaid


  33. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Jan 28, 14 @ 1:44 pm:

  34. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Jan 28, 14 @ 1:47 pm:

    @FakeJasonPlummer - asked Mister Bruce about interning too, after the Ensign Gov thing, but he says I missed my calling. No, Dad was calling to get in the back of the Range Rover is all. #CohenCouldntPawnJasonOffForFree


  35. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Jan 28, 14 @ 1:50 pm:

    All that’s missing is Sheila Simon trying to get signatures in the plaza.


  40. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Jan 28, 14 @ 2:11 pm:

    @FakeJasonPlummer - asked for campaign t-shirt, you know, to like wear at Kams during b-ball season. Told my size was not available, for shirts, hats, buttons, stickers, and signage is out too. Running a campaign on a shoestring sounds tough! #HidingSwagAndEmployees


  41. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Jan 28, 14 @ 2:13 pm:

    @FakeBruceRauner - now I know why the “3″ recommended I get Jason on board. Ok, they got one past me. #MoneyCantStopAllBadDecisions

    @FakeJasonPlummer - had to move all kinds of my stuff out so Mister Bruce could open. Put my comics in a file cabinet and labeled the Drawer “Position Papers” I positioned them away! #UnjusticeLeague


  44. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Jan 28, 14 @ 2:20 pm:

    @FakeJasonPlummer - Dad said, no mater what, I get to hang out at that office. Why my key doesn’t work no more is a puzzle I guess #LeaveYourKeyTakeACannoli


  45. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Jan 28, 14 @ 2:23 pm:

    @FakeJasonPlummer - listening in on my walkie-talkie I planted, sounds like a scorched earth campaign. Hello, Mister Bruce, see my last two weeks last time #BurnedBridgesMeansMoreLumberSoldLater


  46. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Jan 28, 14 @ 2:27 pm:

    @FakeJasonPlummer - told Mister Bruce I am Awe-Sime at press releases, as long as his name ain’t Grogran, Grodan, or …whatever, stop laughing. #RatherReleasesWereLikeWheresWaldoK

  61. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Jan 28, 14 @ 4:00 pm:

    @FakeJasonPlummer - Got the paperwork from State Farm for Slip and Sue to sign before she can come to the Toy Box South. I dunno, 348 pages is a lotta liability policy. #SignHereInitialHereNotarizeThere


  62. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Jan 28, 14 @ 4:07 pm:

    @FakeJasonPlummer - “Evelyn Pacino Sanguinetti is a fine person, an able public servant and an outstanding LG candidate for Illinois. Also, 348 pages is standard for liability, reflecting nothing ill towards Evelyn Pacino Sanguinetti” #LawyersStink #HappyS&S

    Pretty elitist comment Rich, and disappointing. These are all small business owners trying to make a living. And how is Verizon a “generic cell phone store”? This was previously a rundown plaza that has now been renovated and revitalized. I don’t see anywhere in the article where someone claimed it was “upscale”.
