Boycott the Sun-times

Bruce Rauner used to own a piece of the sun-times, now after not endorsing candidates as their policy, they come out and endorse Rauner, and fire a reporter for not writing good things about him. They want to keep us stupid, and are worse than Fox news. I'll never give them a dime of my money again. I remember when the tribune endorsed Bush (jr.), look at the big hole that got us in. that was the day we canceled our subscription. If you want real, accurate news, just look online.

    Since the monopolistic powers that be prevented having a question of term limits on the ballot in the upcoming election, I am starting a new movement called DIY Term Limits, with DIY meaning Do It Yourself.

    For legislators, 10 years in the same legislative body is enough. They need time to get familiar with the legislative body, become a committee chair, and have some influence. Then they need to move up or out.

    For those in executive positions, two terms (even if one is not a full term) are enough.

    I think I might make up some DIY Term Limit Shirts for the city elections....................

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!

    There are very few incumbents in this state that I would vote for. I have been voting for over 40 years and have come to several conclusions about the current ruling party in Illinois (yes other states also, but I live here), They only care about their power, they will say anything to get your vote, they want their position for life and then they want to hand it down to their children. Since the current regime refuses to allow a vote on term limits I think the only choice is to vote for anyone but an incumbent. Yes it is nice and funny to vote for Donald Duck or Mickey Mouse, but that will change nothing. We have to vote for a non incumbent who can actually win. (Yes, the lessor of two evils). But the good part is, if the new person is no better, vote them out also. We cannot keep allowing the same group of people to rule our state. I for one am tired of Daley's, Madigans, Lipinski's, Burke's. Cullertons. Durbin and Kirk. They all need to go.

    Politicians need to remember that they are there to represent us, not themselves or a political party. It wont change overnight but we can and must make them change.

    Lifetime Bridgeporter, I don't think it is correct to say 'they want their position for life and then want to hand it down to their children'. You forgot about handing things down to their nieces and nephews and their in-laws! Plus, they don't wait to hand jobs down, they keep...

    Lifetime Bridgeporter, I don't think it is correct to say 'they want their position for life and then want to hand it down to their children'. You forgot about handing things down to their nieces and nephews and their in-laws! Plus, they don't wait to hand jobs down, they keep theirs and push someone else out of the way for another job, as Ald Zalewski in Garfield Ridge has installed his son as State Rep.

    I agree that we need to vote out anyone who has been there too long. Having people in the public sector who have worked in the private sector may bring some new ideas to governing.

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

  • Patti38 long time Brighton Park resident

    thanks Claude, I will also give Arias heating & cooling a call.
