I'm requesting a community reassessment of this article because I've been involved in editing it. The article seems to be boosterish in tone and to contain a lot of extraneous information. -- Mesconsing (talk) 18:48, 2 January 2013 (UTC)

From a brief glance, I see that there are many brief paragraphs that could probably use expansion or combining with others. Also, the lead seems long for the article, and ideally shouldn't need citations. And a fair bit of the career section seems to be about Joliet and not on his actions as mayor.

Only a brief glance too, but I agree about the short paragraphs. It is also has a slight news ticker style (In August 1989, On October 17 etc) that is used to start many of these sentence, which is not ideal prose. Mesconsing, have you notified the main contributors and Wikiprojects? AIRcorn (talk) 13:03, 3 January 2013 (UTC)
  • I have resolved the stubby paragraph situation.--TonyTheTiger (T/C/BIO/WP:CHICAGO/WP:FOUR) 14:20, 11 January 2013 (UTC)
  • I had a go at editing it with the aim of neutralising some of the language. I am surprised that there is not some negative information pertaining to the introduction of gambling, but it is probably at a good enough stage to be kept as a Good article. AIRcorn (talk) 17:54, 21 January 2013 (UTC)
  • Keep as GA following these revisions; problems appear to have been resolved. -- Khazar2 (talk) 09:58, 13 February 2013 (UTC)
