Bronzeville Thank State Representative Mitchell for Limiting Your Transportation Options

Several weeks ago the Illinois House of Representatives voted on HB 4075. The bill was bought and paid for by the taxi and commercial auto insurance industry and would place draconian regulations on the ridesharing industry Areas such as Bronzeville, which is designated by the City of Chicago, as an underserved community by the taxi industry, has residents who regularly use ridesharing companies Uber,Lyft, and Sidecar for critical transportation needs. Although his constituents use these services State Rep Christian Mitchell supported the bill that would limit ridesharing in Chicago while protecting the taxi industry. .

Well I will say this, it is very uncomfortable to drive through, groups of drug dealers milling about in the street. I didn't sign up for this, until this problem gets solved how do you move forward, just like it has been said maybe they are there to discourage us or frustrate our resolve so we give up and move on. I have seen the Police move on them but they are still there, I have had several conversations with my neighbors and they are at a lost, this is a great concern because you think maybe they have some power you are unaware of that gives them license. You think to yourself am I putting myself in jeopardy by calling them out, but in normal times our families are free to live out in the open with normal neighbor activities, talking, children playing etc.,etc., but who can play in the middle of cars flying down our street 60 miles an hour, 20 to 30 young people coming to and from with who knows what activity going on. Alderman if you are listening ..............HELP

  • Happy making better choices

    Thanks Mr. Harris. Sometimes ignoring is a way to go by not even giving energy to those personal attacks but great for saying something since you felt led to do so and nice Imagine for your last post. Great to see when we all share for the betterment of our neighborhoods.

  • imagine imagine all the people living life in peace

    That's what it is all about...WHERE WE LIVE ! We work hand in hand with the 9th dist. We have people working with the City on abandoned buildings. We sign the complaints when we call the cops. And yeah, that could be dangerous. But we do. We know what buildings...

    That's what it is all about...WHERE WE LIVE ! We work hand in hand with the 9th dist. We have people working with the City on abandoned buildings. We sign the complaints when we call the cops. And yeah, that could be dangerous. But we do. We know what buildings are the most trouble. And have eyes on them. We are doing the smoke outs right in front of them, letting them know we know who you are and what your doing so move it along. We put landlords on notice. We go out and patrol our areas with our cell phones in hand . Writing down and calling 911 when needed. We do not pretend to be cops. We call them We report all the nonsense they tag. Over and over again. And I am sure the cops are tried of it. We are tired too. That's what we pay all our high priced taxes for. And it has worked. Same thing in Canaryville. Heck, we even walk when the weather is great out.They have over 200 members who go out everyday to watch and take a looksee as do we donate their time for the cause. And you would be surprised at ow many are actual CPD who live here in the area. They too report the trouble spots. We have gotten great results. Our Alderman is about as useful as a 3 legged horse. He doesn't even take email and never has. And when yeah call, well good luck with that! And because of this Heliport nonsense, and because of our total displeasure of it being shoved down our necks, he didn't come to the last few CAPS meetings. Gee wonder why! Anyway. This is what we have done and it has worked for us. All I ever see here is crying from certain people over and over again who just want to be arm chair warriors. These are some of our tools. You can ignore them and me. that's the American way! But don't ignore your kids right to be able to go out and play like you did before this all got taken away! Take care . I shall not try anymore or bother you. I am far too old and wise to know when some cannot just help themselves and prefer to cry about all the injustice ! Have a nice day!
