No of these people deserve my Vote

I hope I'm not the only one who is completely disgusted with the political commercials right now! I wouldn't vote for anyone with one of these negative, slanderous commercials. Tell me what qualities you have for the job. Why I should vote for you without slandering the other person. If even a shred of the governer candidate's commercials is to be believed both deserve to be investigated and arrested. As for alderman candidate's I should be tripping over you in my neighborhood not just when it time for my vote. The same goes for the Mayor. I feel so discouraged!

    "As for alderman candidate's I should be tripping over you in my neighborhood not just when it time for my vote"

    It is discouraging that the Aldermanic and Mayoral vote isn't until the end of February and not on the same day as the Gubernatorial and Cook County elections. I've been told this is an intentional scheduling to suppress voter turn out. I've not confirmed that for myself but the logic holds. Low turn-out favors the incumbent and incumbents schedule the elections.

    Either way, it is because of the split election schedule and the later petition filing date that Aldermanic and Mayoral are not yet openly campaigning. The major local push will begin after November 4, 2014, Gubernatorial and Cook County election day.

    City candidates are traditionally encouraged not to hang signs and kiss babies until after the State and County election. This is so that voters will not be confused about who is on what ballot or what day of voting.

    In my opinion it is confusing and obnoxious but that's Illinois politics for you.

Better Education

an elected school board would help your child get a better education. the un-elected board appointed by our mayor only care about getting big contracts, for millions of dollars. For them it is only about the money, and it flowing to their circles. they have no idea what goes on in the classroom. nor do they care. for profit education is not the answer.

  • Rosario Wife,Mother, Friend!!!

    I agree, I was reading the bio's online, only one is/was a teacher, or principal. I want a board oF education, that represents the people who are using the Chicago public schools, former teachers, parents, former students principals. Not former bankers and politicians! Schools are not businesses, maybe that what is going wrong

  • billywood 5500s ashland hope&peace

    Government ,especially education should never be run like business. Cronyism is corruption and this city is overflowing with scams to cheat the good folks. Tax the rich and make them pay fair wages then watch the corruption wither under the strain.

vote for new leadership

If you're tired of the speed limit and red light cameras, paying outrageous prices to park your car on our public streets, just so private contractors can rake in truck loads of money and your elected representatives line their pockets with gold, vote for someone new. Call your alderman and ask him if he has ever, ever voted against against the mayor.

  • Pete DeMay A McKinley Park parent and candidate for alderman

    You are right Stanley. I was proud to sign the pledge to eliminate speed and red light cameras and I challenge George Cardenas to do the same. Across the 12th Ward, people are fed up with the lack of attention and transparency and want change. Please give me a call at 773-791-1428 or email at petedemay@gmail.com so we can set up a time to sit down and talk.

Bollards

A friend of mine mentioned he would like to acquire a "Bollard" to protect his garage seeing he is at the end of an ally. Who instals these?

  • Laura in Chicago,Il. Casa Catalina Volunteer

    Try calling your Alderman.

  • ALDERMAN?!?!?! Since the last gerrymandering, I'm not sure who it is or if they want to help. I am now in a long finger of a boundary that extends for a mile or so and is extremely narrow! only a couple of blocks wide.

  • I'm the guy trying to find out about a " Bollard" Called the 15th Ward office. They had no idea what I was talking about. They said they would get back to me which they never did.

looking for a honest furnace repair person

can anyone recommend a good furnace repair service that is not to expensive. My home wall heater leaks carbon monoxide. I bought new carbon monoxide detectors to see maybe they weren't working properly but they start going off so I had to turn the heater off. I would like to have it looked at and fix before the winter.

  • Update: Sal's number is 773-430-0784
