Thank you 18th Ward for your support

I would like to thank the residents of our community, who voted for me in the February 24th, Alderman Election. It was a long hard road. With little money and a handful of staff we fought the the good fight of faith. We ran a clean and honest campaign. The 18th ward has the greatest people I have known. For this reason, I purposed in my heart to stay the course. I am both grateful and honored for having opportunity...

I would like to thank the residents of our community, who voted for me in the February 24th, Alderman Election. It was a long hard road. With little money and a handful of staff we fought the the good fight of faith. We ran a clean and honest campaign. The 18th ward has the greatest people I have known. For this reason, I purposed in my heart to stay the course. I am both grateful and honored for having opportunity to represent you. Although the February elections are over, and i did not make it into the April runoff, there is still much work to be done. I am committed as ever to having a listening ear and being a voice of hope, purpose and action in our community. I look forward to working together with everyone to help move our ward forward.

closing of gas station

Does anyone know why the BP gas station on 79th and Pulaski closed

  • Does anyone else have a comment . Concerning the gas station closing on 79th and Pulaski

  • Many have posted this same question and never a real response. Sounds fishy! How many vacant gas stations have sat for years with nothing done and this station seems to have vanished in thin air.
