Toni Taxwinkle Should be Impeached

http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/columnists/kass/ct-soda-tax-kass-met-0914-20170913-column.html

When she was 4th Ward Alderman from 1991-2010, Alderman Joe Moore was politically aligned with Preckwinkle. I wonder what his perspective is on this assinine tax?

    Hidden treasures in Toni Taxwinkle's idiotic pop tax
    Taxpayers are rightfully angry about Toni Taxwinkle's costly and idiotic soda pop tax, though there are some hidden gems in it, too. But angry taxpayers jamming the county boardroom on Wednesday weren't looking for treasure. They were looking for vengeance on Taxwinkle for her ravenous penny-per-ounce soda pop tax.

Does anyone know what was going on behind La Unica around 6:10 Monday evening?

A couple of ambulances and fire trucks. Didn't see a lot of police, but I wasn't gonna hang around to see what it was.

    If Edgewater's "very sketchy," how would you describe Rogers Park?

  • elm, I think Helen's point is just that you might find more info on the Edgewater site.
