    Mike you seen to be impressed with titles and or slogans rather than policies.
    "The City that Works"
    What does that mean in terms of policy outcomes?
    So far you can't cite any actual policies that made either Daley better for the average Chicagoan.
    Under Daley 1 we saw the highest elevation of crime in the cities history as well as the biggest outflow of jobs.
    He was hated by the minority community.
    Under Daley Jr. we saw a city that work for those who live downtown. That was always the critique of both Daley administrations.
    They talked about the neighborhoods at election time but did little for them after Election Day.
    Jr ran the rubber stamp city council and together with the major we ran up a huge debt. To which Daley responded by selling off the cities assets at 10 cents on the dollar.
    That is the legacy of JR!
    Much of what you think of as the good old days under Jr was the product of a booming national economy in the 1990's.
    Even with record tax revenue his still managed to bury the city in debt.

    You're talking millions all over the United States that have taken in lead since they were born. For decades. Millions for decades! Today there are 318 million people in the US. I would like to know out of that number what percentage of humans are effected severely by lead poisoning. 135 "managed" to earn a "medical degree"? 150 "might" have earned them a cure for cancer? C'mon you're talking about scientists, accountants, lawyers, dancers, actors, mathematicians, psychologists, doctors, brain surgeons, physicists, the list goes on and on and on. All being exposed to nothing but lead, especially in paint. Everything was painted in battle ship grey and it all had lead and chipped off daily along with windows opening and closing, doors opening and closing. Paint was being disturbed on a regular basis. Maybe people should check their daily routine and see what other "chemicals" could be effecting their child. Lead is in the air! We breathe it daily. We are surrounded by it. We've been surrounded by it all of our lives. Now it's a problem.

    risk, you seem to have great difficulty writing a complete sentence that makes sense. If you can't write well you can't think well.

    The company the empties the blue carts will turn them upside down when people, can't follow instructions which specify that recyclables cannot be put in plastic bags and placed in the blue carts. Recyclables must be put in loose in the bins. It's not complicated but many Americans have difficulty reading and writing well. The lack of ability to think clearly is why criminal thugs like Clinton and a corrupt, criminal organization known as the DNC get away with colluding to steal a nomination from someone like Bernie Sanders.

Twenty days of near pitch black on our block.
Family on the bock that sells drugs blatantly for 5 years.
Causes disturbances at all hours and abuse neighbors.
In the last 4 years there have been more than a dozen multi ganbanger
firearm exhanges , multiple car windows shot out, homes with
windows shot out Guess who pays for the damage? US.
Neighbors have security cameras and have given images to police.
That cannot be done now due to near total darkness.

Several calls have been made to 311.
Over winter 2 homes were shot up after 3 shootings.
After that lights were out for 8 WEEKS though calls were made to 311.
There are families with young children on this block.

There seems to be no possible way to get this downgraded city/ward to get the lights back on for our protection..
GANGS do have a way of rigging lights to go off.
The lights were off the day before the illegal fireworks on this block began.
1900 S Miller

This from another ward , residents posting about same issue:

"The alderman's office can just have someone go out immediately.
If you suspect gangs are purposefully putting the lights out, a call to the CAPS office at your police station might not be a bad idea, too"

DONE THAT no use.
311 reports have been made every other day.
Reported online.
CAPS , no use, they will take your report and file it in the circular file.
Can someone please tell me the amount of CA$H needed
in the envelope to hand over to the alderman to get the lights back on? Of course this is only a political donation.

    Report Links Crime to Streetlight Outages
    A new study commissioned by Chicago's Department of Transportation confirms what many people have feared: crime goes up when the lights go out. The study, which was conducted by a team of graduate students collaborating through the Data Science for Social Good fellowship, found on average crime went up 7 percent across the city when entire blocks of streetlights were not working.
