Alderman Moore on WTTW "Pitfalls of Participatory Budget" 4/24/17

According to Moore PB gives "taxpayers" the decision on how to spend their local community tax dollars. Conversely, Moore's election criteria allows children as young as 16 who are ineligible to vote in public elections, and adults otherwise ineligible to legally vote in public elections, for what ever reasons, to do so. Those ineligible to vote would also include illegal and documented aliens who are not necessarily "taxpayers," and certainly 16 year old children are not self supporting "taxpayers" as...

According to Moore PB gives "taxpayers" the decision on how to spend their local community tax dollars. Conversely, Moore's election criteria allows children as young as 16 who are ineligible to vote in public elections, and adults otherwise ineligible to legally vote in public elections, for what ever reasons, to do so. Those ineligible to vote would also include illegal and documented aliens who are not necessarily "taxpayers," and certainly 16 year old children are not self supporting "taxpayers" as Moore stated. In effect, like his absurd extreme support of continued expansion of our social safety net, Moore's desire is to run his own personal popularity contest with non contributing factions of the community at the expense of taxpayers. I hope Bill Morton runs against him. At least he appears to genuinely care about the community which is more than I can say for Moore.

    PS. I'm talking about real elections, not pretend ones. You know, like local ones, those designed to make you believe that your opinion matters when all the deals have already been made behind closed doors.

  • PB is still. Not. An. Election.

Who's Really the Ones Selling "Hate"?

Our local administration is circulating emails, flyers, etc with the slogan "Hate Has No Home Here" which are an attack upon the Trump administration. While the local administration, and many local Democrat officials support irresponsible government spending at the expense of the working families of our communities, they attack any attempt at responsible management practices and label that which they themselves hate as "Haters." Just another disingenuous agenda by the irresponsible faction which is fostering a welfare economy which will eventually have a major collapse.

    Stand up for ALL our neighbors: "Hate Has No Home Here" signs available at 49th Ward Service Office
    Dear Neighbor, You may have noticed signs with the message "Hate Has No Home Here" posted inwindows, yards and car bumpers throughout Rogers Park. These popular signs serve as a counter to the divisive and harmful rhetoric and policies emanating from the current occupant of the White House and a declaration of our community's solidarity with those have been the object of hateful speech and conduct.

  • The 49th Ward is one of the more liberal wards in the city, so I think that Moore is pretty safe politically.

    But, Manticore, a new alderman would be great for Rogers Park.
