Three challengers are up against incumbent Timothy Brophy in the Joliet Consolidated Election to be held April 5, 2011.  The challengers are: John M. Gurka, Brian Baltz, and Robert O'Dekirk.

Timothy M. Brophy is the current Joliet City Council Member serving District 2.  His biography from the Joliet City Council Website:

Goals for the City of Joliet 
Tim has both big and small goals for the City of Joliet . On a larger scale Tim would like to make Joliet a place we are all proud to call home. He would like to augment and diversify our economy and to maximize all revenue sources so we can keep pressure off property taxes. He would like to continue the revitalization of downtown Joliet into a vibrant and active place to live, work and play. He continues the work of changing the Evergreen Terrace housing project area. Tim emphasizes the importance of working together with other units of government, especially Will County , to effectively and efficiently get the most out of taxpayers' dollars.
On an individual basis Tim would like to completely eliminate basement flooding from every home. He would also like to relieve neighbors of problem houses, drug houses, over-crowding and other residential abuses. Tim would also like to continue to work with the Joliet Police Department to eliminate noise pollution from loud vehicles."

I was unable to find any official websites or YouTube videos for John M. Gurka, Brian Baltz, or Robert O'Dekirk.  If you know of any sites with their information, please email me at  I will also check for more information as the election nears.

  1. I've been searching the net for about an hour and can't find anything about what these candidates stand for. It's actually a little frustrating considering the lection is less than a month away.
