Lonely Neighbor

Elderly woman in neighborhood (somewhat abrasive and constantly complaining) has stated this year she is not putting up her lights around windows as usual because she is lonely and has nobody to celebrate with. She lives with and is caretaker for her blind and frail older sister. Would welcome any suggestions to bring them an ounce of Christmas cheer.
Only thing I can think of is to bring them a tray of cookies....am physically unable to decorate for her and they are both shut-ins. Thanks in advance.

Aldermanic Candidates

By reading EveryBlock and Galewood.net, I learned there are 5-6 candidates for Alderman in the 36th Ward. Villegas, Vittorio, Vazquez, Zaragoza, Aquino and Tenuta.

It's only 3 months until the election.

Villegas, Vittorio and Vazquez are the only three of the group who have made any effort to reveal themselves or any platform to the community. Villegas is the only candidate that I have noticed putting himself out there and showing sincere interest.....with the other two V-guys close behind in...

By reading EveryBlock and Galewood.net, I learned there are 5-6 candidates for Alderman in the 36th Ward. Villegas, Vittorio, Vazquez, Zaragoza, Aquino and Tenuta.

It's only 3 months until the election.

Villegas, Vittorio and Vazquez are the only three of the group who have made any effort to reveal themselves or any platform to the community. Villegas is the only candidate that I have noticed putting himself out there and showing sincere interest.....with the other two V-guys close behind in enthusiasm. Although a lifelong Chicagoan and primarily a Democrat, there is no way I can support the 26 year old candidate with little life experience just because many of his relatives are machine politicians. Call me cynical but ......

I mistakenly responded to a candidate in the 29th who told me to write to him because his platform would be too long to post on EveryBlock. Another said to look him up on Facebook. (I don't have a FB account because I don't want one; hello?)

Want to win an election guys? Tell us who you are personally, what you've accomplished, how you can make a positive difference and what you can do for your constituents. What makes you the man for the job?

    GOALS FOR IMPROVING ALL OF CHICAGO
    • Fight to end privatization of public assets and public services
    • Restoration of cuts to free clinics and mental health facilities
    • End the red-light cameras that don’t improve safety and are used only for revenue
    • Fight the horrible parking meter contract and support the IVI-IPO lawsuit against the meter company
    • Use the city’s TIF slush fund to support neighborhood public schools, shore up the worker pensions, and refund mental health clinics and health centers
    • Equal pay for women in public service and all private-sector jobs
    • A graduated city income tax that would exempt all households earning less than $70,000/year and tax wealthy households at proportionally higher rates.
    • Ticket suburbanites that park their vehicles on our Chicago streets overnight. The suburbs ticket Chicagoans that park overnight on their streets and it should work both ways.
    • An independent elected civilian review board that has the power to investigate, subpoena, and discipline officers – including dismissal for misconduct.
    • Find new sources of revenue such as Fair Tax, suburban commuter tax, or a financial transaction tax that don’t unfairly impact or target Chicago residents
    • Fight for stricter sentences when committing a crime with a weapon

    POLITICAL PROMISE
    • I will never support political candidates that don’t have the best interest of our residents at heart. I will never support a candidate for office that abuses his responsibilities or wastes tax payer money.
    • I will hold open and assessable community forums, candidate debates, and meet and greets for all candidates running for office in the ward boundaries. I will not force a politician on our community or use political donations to promote a friend or relative into office.
    • I will be an assessable and approachable Alderman that represents the residents of the 36th Ward with honor, transparency, and dignity.

  • Joaquin Vazquez Candadate for the 36th ward

    I would like to thank all my family and friends who have given up their precious time to support me in my cause these last couple of months. I especially would like to thanks all the thousands of people my volunteers and I have spoken to along this journey and had signed my petitions.
    I am sad to say that I have decided not to contest the objections that were filed against me. It is not that there was any merit to them, I was quite sure I would have defeated all of them, but one in particular where a receipt was accepted at filing but has since been conveniently misplaced would have required tremendous time and money .
    Whether it was at a function, signing my petition, parishioners at the church’s or the many business owners I have seen, I was blessed to encounter some of the best this ward has to offer as I’m sure the other potential candidates have as well. And whether you’ve signed my petition or believed in my vision for the 36th ward I hope you follow through, research the candidates and vote for the person who has our best interest at heart. This is your opportunity to voice your opinion on the future of the ward.
