*** UPDATED x2 - “Agreed to step down” *** Pritzker withdraws nomination of Cesar Santoy to Tollway board

Friday, Oct 11, 2019

* From the Secretary of State’s Index Division…

Santoy’s name and company are listed in the federal search warrant of Sen. Martin Sandoval’s Statehouse office. Santoy’s attorney claimed his client is not a target. The governor called on Santoy to step aside earlier today.

*** UPDATE 1 *** From the Pritzker administration…

Cesar Santoy has agreed to step down. His appointment has not been confirmed by the Senate, so our administration has withdrawn the appointment.

*** UPDATE 2 *** Hmm. Well, this is interesting. Santoy’s campaign committee has received $4,250 in two contributions from Sen. Martin Sandoval.

Also, there’s this

Six intersections will be studied and additional red-light cameras are on the way for Berwyn after the City Council approved the contract with SafeSpeed, LLC Tuesday.

The discussion became heated at times as Third Ward Alderman Marge Paul initiated the conversation, discussing the tie of Michael Del Galdo to SafeSpeed. Del Galdo, a Berwyn attorney, had done work for the city earlier this year. […]

Fifth Ward Alderman Cesar Santoy voted to approve the contract after reading the submission from Deputy Police Chief Joseph Drury earlier this month.

“I was impressed he did some research and was able to find an alternative to save the city some money and increase the revenue, and at the end of the day improve public safety,” Santoy said.

    Just one more thing….who recommended him?


  2. - Not again - Friday, Oct 11, 19 @ 3:26 pm:

    Probably should pass a bill in veto to reconstitute the board.

    ===who recommended him?===

    I’m asking around about that. Patience.

    This has been one heck of a Friday.

    ===who recommended him?===

    For what it’s worth, Illinois Sunshine has Friends of Martin Sandoval as Santoy’s biggest donor, though last donation was back in 2015.

    Santoy donated to Sandoval’s daughter’s campaign for Cook County Commissioner. She’s currently working for ComEd.

    That actually does not seem fair. When news broke about JB’s various problems during the campaign, people stuck with him. Isn’t he also under federal investigation himself? Seems a little hypocritcal

    - Foiaf -

    It might not be fair but, there’s a lot of people under pressure . What appears to be a massive investigation could put a lot of seats in jeopardy. I’m not saying it’s right. I’m just saying that’s the way of the political world right now.


  8. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Oct 11, 19 @ 4:09 pm:

    ===lot of seats in jeopardy===

    Governor Pritzker is up in 2022


  9. - Steve - Friday, Oct 11, 19 @ 4:35 pm:

    OW

    I’ m talking about seats in the 2020 election. Concerning the image of corruption.


  10. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Oct 11, 19 @ 4:38 pm:

    And a tollway nominee that is stepping away is effecting.. who exactly?

    He was appointed by a governor who was called so many things, and ran against a party that “corruption” was a centerpiece.

    Pritzker won by 16 points.

    Trump is in the White House, and actually on the ticket.


  11. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Oct 11, 19 @ 4:48 pm:

    ===I’ m talking about seats in the 2020 election. Concerning the image of corruption.===

    In 2019, an indicted Ed Burke… won.


  12. - Steve - Friday, Oct 11, 19 @ 4:50 pm:

    OW

    Is everyone as fortunate as Ed Burke ? Probably not. They don’t have the massive campaign fund to help them out.


  13. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Oct 11, 19 @ 4:51 pm:

    ===They don’t have the massive campaign fund to help them out.===

    The HGOP and SGOP, along with the ILGOP are essentially broke… running with Trump.

    What else ya got?


  14. - Ha - Friday, Oct 11, 19 @ 4:52 pm:

    Oh Willy. Relax, nobody attacking Rosemont, at moment. Did you miss the part about Sandoval donating to the guy, and him acting in his capacity as alderman to enrich himself and his gang? Gee wiz wonder who recommended him for the tollway board? Lol. So Steve you are not wrong no matter what the warden says.


  15. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Oct 11, 19 @ 4:54 pm:

    ===Did you miss the part about Sandoval donating to the guy, and him acting in his capacity as alderman to enrich himself and his gang?===

    Nah. I’m trying to figure out who - Steve - is pearl clutching for.
