Empty Store Fronts for Daley Thompson

Am I the only one enjoying the great irony with seemingly every empty store front in our neighborhood having a Daley Thompson sign in the window, and sometimes multiple signs?

Never mind I just received my third mailer this week from the Thompson campaign throwing around the "wall street" canard when it comes to Kozlar. How exactly does the Daley Thompson campaign think that pension dollars are invested?

    Maybe this will help, as I said there is a correlation, in this article it mentions that assessed valuation derives from information from the Illinois Dept. of Revenue. An area with many prosperous businesses will have higher valuations and taxes, because they report more income. The income gets reported monthly on a form called an ST-1. From there information is complied for assessed valuations for a business area. It is an overall valuation not a per property valuation. For instance, we also rent property that we have a NNN lease, so we pay the property tax. However, we don't report income to a real estate taxing body, but do on a ST-1. The nearby UPS store does the same, so does the fast food joint and the Starbucks. The compilation of this income determines the overall assessed valuation of a business district. Here is where a small to medium storefront gets hit, their taxes are high because of neighboring big box places. So when they rent, they have to get a tenant to agree to pay the tax bill, or as many do the owner pays it and has to charge the appropriate rent to cover it.

    http://www.cmap.illinois.gov/economy/tax-policy/decoding-property-taxes

    Property owners have to fill out an affidavit stating the place is vacant and available for lease or sale, these get verified at random, sometimes you're required to provide photos. (We had to) If you're caught lying I'm sure you will get hit with back taxes and jail time. There is no form or mercy for getting it rented and reporting that the income is low on it and not enough to to cover taxes and debt service. You do get a break for vacant only. This is why it's cheaper to keep it vacant at times. I offered to rent a space on 31st a few years ago, I offered 1K the owner said he needed 1,500 a month, the space was still vacant all that time until one of the aldermatic candidates rented it. He said at 1K he would lose money 1,500 was his break even.

Patrick Daley Thompson's campaign fund approaches 400k???

Thompson's A-1 financial report reveals that as of yesterday he has received over $290k in donations from contributors who gave at least 1k. Add to that his fundraisers, PAC contributions and donations under $1k and this total easily goes passed 400k. Here's the kicker though. 91% (265k) of the donors on that A-1 report are from people or businesses from addresses outside the ward boundaries.

  • Tony Steel neighborhood guy

    Thompson is acting just like the rest of them - trying to buy this election. The people had enough. I keep getting this ridiculous mailers from Thompson lying about Kozlar and every time I get it, it makes my vote for Kozlar that much stronger.

    I never expected anything for making a small political donation.

Something Else to Consider when voting for 11th Ward Alderman

http://chicago.cbslocal.com/2015/03/26/sanitary-district-cop-caught-on-tape-talking-about-sleeping-and-drinking-on-the-job/

The above is a link to a story new to WBBM radio today. Maybe you'll want to ask the candidates about the truth of this story, and if Thompson pleads ignorance, I guess he was not very involved -- except for the paycheck -- in running the MWRD.

  • I read the above link (and all the others, thanks) There was some very strong launguage used in the above link. The MWRD seems to be a diverse group of elected officials. It reminded me of the fire department situation that was on the news a few years ago. So, my question is: Is there an oversight board that is taking steps to deal with the situation and how would this effect an elected official in our community?

I was going to vote for Patrick Daley Thompson until I received a mailer today stating that Kozlar was a Republican, that he wants to raise property taxes, that he is tied to Wall Street. I have been watching the debates, attending the forums and reading both candidates websites. The past few weeks I have been more and more unimpressed with Patrick Daley Thompson but I was still going to vote for him. Now with this mailer that is full of false claims I am voting for Kozlar. If you read and watch all of Kozlars comments he has repeatedly been against raising property taxes, he is obviously not a Republican and he isnt tied to Wall Street. He probably voted against Rauner in the primary, just as I did and now he is labeled a Republican. Give me a break. I dont trust Patrick Daley Thompson after this mailer. He is obviously very desperate to be the Alderman for some reason and I dont think it is to help the residence of the ward.

  • West loop realist Teacher political operative

    Daley must be defeated. He and his entire thief family has to be completely removed from doing any business whatsoever in the city that they have single handedly destroyed by their corruption. Look at Daleys contributors in this race. Electing him will be a vote for the same corruption that his crook family has bought us.

Old photos wanted

My mom, along with her brothers and sisters, was born at 2050 W. Roosevelt
in the early 1920's. They were baptized at St. Charles Borromeo Catholic Church
which was located at 12th & Cypress St. (now Roosevelt Rd. and Hoyne Ave.)
Does anyone have photos of this section of Roosevelt Rd. showing
the church and surrounding neighborhood. Would be great to have a photo
of the building where she and her siblings were born. Many Thanks in advance!

Bridgeport Home Burglary (3200 Block of Aberdeen)

My house was broken into and ransacked yesterday. There seem to have been a few burglaries lately, so keep your eyes open. They rang the door to see if anyone was home, then came through the alley, broke out 2 doors and quickly removed commuters, tvs, and jewelry from our home. Fortunately no harm to our animals. If you saw any strange people or groups of people in the alley of the 3200 block of Aberdeen yesterday or have a camera pointed in that direction please let me know in this message. Stay safe and vigilant Bridgeport.

John Kozlar did great tonight!

I am now voting for Kozlar. He was concise and appropriately stopped Thompson from going on a political rhetoric rant. What is up with Daley Thompson and wanting to raise our property taxes? I know he can afford to pay a property tax increase, but many of us cannot. Let's show up and make a real change around here!!!

    I was thinking the same Erik, until I realized the importance of this election. A blank vote for alderman is a vote for the Daley Machine. All they want to do is divide us. We can rid ourselves of the Daley's right now. I am really becoming a big fan of Kozlar because he offers something new and a path not traveled. I really think he can do a great job if given the chance to work with our community. If we do not like the work of Kozlar after four years, then we can vote him out. If another Daley gets in there again, then we will be repeating history and nothing will change.

With a mailbox at The UPS Store, you get a real street address, not a P.O. Box number. If you’re a business owner, having a real street address as your mailbox can provide you with a professional image for your business. The UPS Store also offers many additional services that the post office does not, services like package acceptance from all carriers, package notification and Call-in MailCheck®, all aimed to save you valuable time.

What does my mailing address look like?
Your mailing address will be the address of The UPS Store location, with either PMB (private mailbox) or the pound symbol (#) designating your individual box. Instead of “The UPS Store,” your name appears first.

Example:
Joe Smith
PMB XXX or # XXX
12345 Somewhere Street
Some City, Some State Some ZIP

What mailbox sizes do you offer?
The UPS Store offers various mailboxes sizes. Contact your neighborhood location today to find out what’s available.

Cars Towed and Ticketed on 33rd place and S Morgan

This morning I woke up to a lot of noise, I looked down and I saw that my car was next in a long line of cars being towed on 33rd place. I managed to save mine but many people weren't so lucky. Plus, we all got $75 tickets. When I parked my car yesterday at 12:30 pm there weren't any No Parking signs. All those signs have been put there this morning or late yesterday.

This morning I woke up to a lot of noise, I looked down and I saw that my car was next in a long line of cars being towed on 33rd place. I managed to save mine but many people weren't so lucky. Plus, we all got $75 tickets. When I parked my car yesterday at 12:30 pm there weren't any No Parking signs. All those signs have been put there this morning or late yesterday. Otherwise why would EVERYBODY still be parked there today? We aren't masochists. I tried to look for a cop but I couldn't find anyone. I called the city of Chicago and they told me to contest the ticket. That goes without saying, but I think something else needs to be done. It is ridiculous to give less than a 24-h warning before towing cars and someone has to pay/apologize for this. End of rant!

Loomis Bridge. . .

What is going on? The north(-ish) bound lanes are blocked every morning. But the south-bound lanes are open. Ashland is way crowded. When will the work be done?

  • They took down the chain link fence and put lights on the tops of the fence poles. There were people making sure no one was using the sidewalk over the bridge for the last few days. I have a feeling it was for whatever they are filming in the area.

  • 1331st enemy of "dibs"

    I talked to two guys this morning. One was "security" and the other a worker. I don't think they'll block traffic any more but the northbound sidewalk remains closed because the fence is down as Radio Relay said. It certainly has nothing to do with repairing the bridge itself.

    I have a shop in the Bridgeport Art Center located at 1200 W. 35th St. When working encourages artist in the building you started out with only three of us 13 years ago and were 50+ artist now. They have just build out a new set of spaces in the basement where I'm at, specifically for woodworking and metalworking shops. If you want to come by and check out my shower might be happy to give you a tour of the spaces if you're interested then I can get you in contact with anyone you want in the building. Call me at 312-560-9251.

  • Me and my partner just finished rehabbing a building at 37th and Halsted. We were looking to rent it as a work/living space. If you would like to check it out give me a call. My # is 773-791-1496 or you can call my partner Robert at 773-724-1594. We envisioned this space as being used by an artist so if you're interested give us a call.

  • K Vitek Concerned bridgeport resident

    There is a store front on 35th & Halsted, on the Halsted side next to Chase Bank. This was Brittany Hatfield Beauty shop that is closed right now

Something to consider when voting in the next few weeks

The following two links are not really local, but I bring them up here as we vote soon for the people who have driven this state and city into bankruptcy. Our politicians are not good stewards of taxpayer money.

http://www.chicagotribune.com/suburbs/lake-county-news-sun/crime/ct-rivera-lawsuit-settlement-met-20150320-story.html

Two men were recently given money for being wrongfully imprisoned. The first link is to an Ohio case, where the man was awarded about $1 million, based on Ohio's reimbursement rate of about $51K per year. The man spent about 39 years in prison, and the judge ordered 50% be put into an annuity for him.

The second link is to an Illinois prisoner, who is settling for $20 million. He spent 20 years in prison, -- half the time the Ohio man did -- but he is getting 10 or 20 times the payout.

How can Illinois afford this? Why don't we have a standard reimbursement rate, as Ohio does, instead of leaving this to 'compassionate' or just plain goofy juries? Could it be that there are too many lawyers here? And they have too much influence on our politicians?

Before anyone answers that the $20 miillion is fair, keep in mind that many of our soldiers have come back from the service damaged in a variety of ways, that they will never be made whole, and we do not give them millions. They're lucky if they can get an appointment at the VA.

  • Lucy Lucy, 56, longtime resident.

    That is an excellent question!!!!! And.....it is only one of so many others. The people who are falsely imprisoned deserve compensation, but so do our soldiers, maimed, or otherwise.

  • West loop realist Teacher political operative

    Enough if the crying for free money. Soldiers deserve to be paid first. Ours is the only civilized country that treats its veterans poorly. This is where the real reparations should begin.
