Corrupt Aurora Mayor Tom Weisner will resign, effective October 30.
Citing "health reasons" Weisner will leave city government after a decade of destruction and deterioration to the city, including skyrocketing taxes, massive debt, increased labor costs, reverse economic development, crime stat manipulation, wild spending on projects to reward cronies and making Aurora "second to none" for corruption in Illinois.
Weisner and others associated with the political mafia of Aurora have been under federal investigation. If indicted and prosecuted, Weisner's crimes would pale in comparison to former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich.
Bob O'Connor, Alderman-at-Large, wild spending finance chair and Mayor Pro-Tem, is likely to assume the role of mayor to continue to the corruption until a new mayor is elected in 2017.
In one of Weisner's worst and most recent irresponsible acts, he appointed corrupt cop Kristen Ziman ahead of more experienced and qualified police professionals as part of a deal with the political mafia in an effort to make sure widespread crime at City Hall was kept out of the spotlight.
Ziman was fully aware Weisner was under investigation before she was appointed as police chief and intentionally disregarded the crime spree at City Hall because her spouse and close friends all financially benefit from the corruption and political mafia. We encourage Aurora Police and all area law enforce agencies to immediately remove Kristen Ziman from any law enforcement capacity to protect the integrity of the APD.
As we have stated repeatedly since he was elected to this most recent term, Tom Weisner was never going to finish his term as mayor.
Weisner's career has has an extensive history of use of intimidation, threats, violence, racism, bigotry and dishonesty with vindictiveness and bullying.
He even exploited his own late disabled son for political fundraising and later threw his adopted son under the bus after a domestic dispute saying his son was just a "ward of the state."
We hope this begins a chance to save Aurora from its current path of deterioration and encourage Tom Weisner, if he actually has any health issue, to make his resignation effective immediately and to begin removing department heads who have colluded to ruin our city.
