    The Election will take place on Tuesday February 24th. The candidates for 5th Ward alderman will be incumbent Leslie Hairston, Tiffany Brooks, Jedidiah Brown, Robin Boyd Clark, Jocelyn Hare and Anne Marie Miles.

    South Shore residents, it’s imperative that we all take a close look and become familiar with each candidate running for the 5th Ward Alderman. Let us all take the time to read, or listen to some of the candidates via YouTube. Explore each candidate platform & what their plans are for SOUTH SHORE if elected. There is too much emphasis on Hyde Park, the Lake front, Woodlawn, and the University of Chicago.
    Hyde Park & other communities continue to progress, but not South Shore.
    One candidate made the following account, “ when my family and I visit Hyde Park for a meal, upon returning to South Shore, it becomes depressing.”
    South Shore is one of 77 well defined community areas of the city of Chicago in the US. This community has experienced an economic decline over the past decade & has not seen any new business growth within the neighborhood.
    South Shore lost Partnership Bank, Ace Hardware, Currency Exchange, Dominick’s Grocery, and several small boutique businesses, Currently 71st street starting at Jeffrey to Exchange, has 18 vacant properties.
    Whole Foods Market plans to open six new locations in Chicago, four of which will open in May, according to Crain’s Chicago Business. The new stores will be located in former Dominick’s locations. The first of the six stores opened today in Streeterville. The following stores will open in Lincoln Park, the West Loop & Edgewater, according to the report. The grocer will open suburban locations in Evanston, Willow brook, and Elmhurst later in the year.
    How long will the residents of have to put up WITH the CONSTANT ALIENATION? Hopefully, the candidates for 5th Ward Alderman can give us some input on SATURDAY, JANUARY 31, 2015 at 10:30 am. at Hyde Park HS. 6220 S. Stony Island.

The time Mr. Cub ran for alderman

The Eighth Ward was centered in and around the Chatham neighborhood—Banks lived at 8159 S. Rhodes—which was then starting to change from white to black.

He opened a campaign headquarters at 79th and Cottage Grove. And came up with a snappy slogan: "Put a slugger in City Hall."
