Over on the Peoria Chronicle they take Dan to task for choosing a "puzzling platform" because he wants to focus on the completion of the Kellar Branch Trail. You can read about what others feel is important to the 5th District here, and it ain't the Kellar Branch Trail.
- Job growth, business investment/development within the 1st District.
- Focus on the Warehouse District and Downtown (she is a propopent of what's been going on in the Downtown)
- The crappy $13 Garbage Fee on water bills.
- Raising property taxes that’ll drive out people and they will leave Peoria.
- District 150 is a mess and nobody who values their child’s safety, let alone education, will allow their kid to go to any district school.
- Bullshit spending on Head Start and even the $80k and more for ELITE.
- Our council think a success is drinking Irish beer in the middle of a taxpayer paid street to benefit a local bar owner.
- Taxpayers paid millions to have Water Street installed so we can pay city services to close it so those who seem not to have day jobs can lounge in chairs and tables at a local bar.
- Success is lowering the crime rate.
- Success is repairing and cleaning the streets.
- Success is having a great fire department and sidewalks in ALL neighborhoods.
- Nothing done on Griswold in over 40 years or any side street but with the Southside TIF money we install ornamental lights and fix a roof on an empty building.

As we know, recently the state and city commissioned a feasibility study on the installation of a roundabout. The study is said to have cost nearly $400,000. City Hall is good with the findings of the study and is about to seal the deal on the Beautiful Warehouse District Roundabout.
The local sentiment on Cat getting what they want...
... IF Caterpillar employees came back to the City of Peoria (to the older neighborhoods) bringing in their tax base and their children to Peoria schools, how safe would they be? What would be the probability of being hit by bullets (rather than trucks)?
