    You can say what you want but again they are 2 votes out of 50. The real power is in the hands of the mayor. You can sit here and complain about our aldermen which accomplishes nothing or you can write the mayor and call the mayors office until the mayor makes more cops the top priority.

  • Been there, done that. What makes you think the Mayor will listen this time? This is about political control, not about public safety. It is in the Democrats' best interest to not pander to our needs. They want to divide and conquer (ie. maintain control). Why do you think McCarthy was ousted?

    BTW the real issues are with the County and State, which we seem to have zero access to. Think Kim Foxx and her security entourage will be open to a UKV meeting? Highly doubtful.

    I actually read the story and at no point was there mention of the East Village Assn. opposing or supporting the plan and that's because they have not weighed in on the plan. They reported on a meeting, called for and hosted by Ald. Hopkins. The people who oppose the plan are the people who live adjacent to the proposed restaurant. They have a right to say what they think of the project and that's what they did. From what I heard, the mechanic just signed a multi-year lease to continue operating at that site and found out about the project from a news article. Something is very odd about that.
