The Businesses Donating to your Alderman in your ward

Here is a link of the most Recent Donations to 24th and 28th Ward Aldermen. A Deli gave Ervin $5000.00.. I had no idea that this particular deli did this much business. When you start finding out where your Tax dollars are going to, you may get upset enough to finally VOTE!

    She is a registered WRITE IN Candidate qualified to be accepted as write in. Rumor has it the other write in candidate ha an address of a homes shelter and no plans to,work for election. Did not fact check.

    She may b a special Ed teacher who is active in community issues.

    Go to jjfor28.'com her site.

    Look around and see the scourge of blight in28

    All who do not rally to get new representation deserve to live in the deplorable conditions we suffer under,

    Do your best to help us break the scourge in 28 over the past 24 years.

    Nobody can deny stats.

    The best tools are early voting where one can register And Vote on the same day. Go to the bBoard of elections site for requirements and ID. Going to a polling place outside of the ward is a Good idea to escape the spies and any potential intimidation and retaliation.

    Rumors abound about rough intimidation by thugs and how scarey it is. Others talk a out someone showing up at their door asking them to recant their signature to get on the ballot. Those are also fearful.

12th Ward election?

I'm fairly new to the 12th ward and see that unlike Solis in the 25th ward, George Cardenas is running unopposed. What's his reputation as an alderman? I assume people generally like him if there are no challengers?

  • Thank you for your response. I sent the emails to the following emails accounts that are listed in your Ward page including the ward12@cityofchicago.org:

    anabel.abarca@cityofchicago.org (anabel.abarca@cityofchicago.org) kevin.lemke@cityofchicago.org (kevin.lemke@cityofchicago.org) jennifer.nunez@cityofchicago.org (jennifer.nunez@cityofchicago.org) carlos.sanchez@cityofchicago.org (carlos.sanchez@cityofchicago.org) juan.gonzalez@cityofchicago.org (juan.gonzalez@cityofchicago.org)
    ward12@cityofchicago.org (ward12@cityofchicago.org)

    Do I need to send it again?

  • Thanks for the post, Alderman Cardenas. I'll make it a point to make it to one of the Ward nights. I love living in this neighborhood, but I have to admit, the amount of garbage on the sidewalks and streets that accumulates during the warmer months is a problem. Can you install more public garbage cans?

alderman solis

what a joke, the snow by whitter school was`nt shovel yet the city said it was, right today the streets 23 rd st between damen and walcott is full of snow and solis is asking for my vote in your dreams. u r a bad alderman

  • I see remarks regularly stating "Vote all incumbents OUT" I agree! Especially if they are NOT doing their job of REPRESENTING Their constituents... If there are a rare few that are doing a good job? Well they can get voted bake in.. People have got to stop just voting party lines,. Vote for the qualified candidate!! They would end up being very happy with the results they get.. Well maybe not all folks
