    I think after the basketball removal scheme, the push to ban teens from Chase Park, the scheme to remove parking from the beach that the Park District is kind of tired of CappleMessages.

    The Clarendon Park field house has not received a dime or any time of attention from Alderman Cappleman in the four yearshe has had in office.

    At the same time he has ported over a $1million in TIF funds to projects outside the ward to the 48th.

    CapplePlanner has committed $6million to a "people plaza" that may never happen because of downtown resistance/ embarrassment.

    CappleVague alluded to using TIF funds during the subsidized luxury housing scheme during the Maryville debacle until the developer JDL pulled out. Never mentioned since then.

    CappleCrime has been to countless CAPS meetings where it is expressed over and over the youth need something to do. Clarendon Park needs help and it has a pond in the gym after each rain. Still...nothing.

    Clarendon Park fieldhouse is a legitimate recipient of TIF funds if ever there was one ,it is a community asset falling apart. Many other alderman have committed TIF to park infrastructure.

    April 7th let's vote for Amy Crawford who has stated clearly she will do what can easily be done by a sitting Alderman.

    Fix Clarendon Park...Fire Cappleman.

    Cappleman doesn't relate to poor kids and basically wants to criminalize them and push them out of the neighborhood.
