What is a voter to think, Rahm Emanuel? #CHUY2015

ELECT Jesus "CHUY" Garcia, Mayor of the City of Chicago, and KEVIN M. BAILEY for Chicago's 20th Ward Alderman!

#Chuy2015 #KevinBailey20thWardAlderman

  • Bronzeville Curmudgeon Bronzeville Conservator

    In the African American community of Chicago, we elect people to office who are not accountable, then they become sycophants to the established plutocracy, for patronage perks they hand out to their political cronies.

  • Bronzeville Curmudgeon Bronzeville Conservator

    Bob Fioretti is supporting Emanuel because Rahm has committed to paying off his campaign dept!!!

    Rahm did the same thing for the rump African American candidate, in his last successful campaign for Mayor of Chicago!

"But efforts to peer into the daily operations of the mayor himself — a man with enormous say over hundreds of millions of dollars in city contracts, hiring and regulations — are met by a stone wall."

Are there any FUTURE 20th Ward Aldermanic Candidate FORUMS or DEBATES scheduled?

Are there any 20th Ward Aldermanic Candidate FORUMS or DEBATES scheduled to take place between now and April 7, 2015?

Alderman Cochran has already either DECLINED or FAILED TO ACCEPT three (3) opportunities to debate his RUNOFF Opponent, Kevin M. Bailey. He keeps bashing Mr. Bailey to whomever will listen on social media, but, not in a forum conducive to addressing the issues head on and in front of the voters!

PLEASE ADVISE!

What's wrong with a bicycle tax?

With the amount of money spent to make Chicago "cyclist friendly," what's wrong with charging a bicycle tax? Those who drive pay annually for city stickers. Why shouldn't cyclists have to do the same?

    I am actually part tree hugger so although I really don't like bikers in the street, I appreciate that mode of transportation and own a bike myself. My old bike had turn signals and everything. I was comfy on the sidewalk and followed the rules. I called out as I was set to pass ppl and was kind to walkers. This is not the average biker of today so putting them in the street irritates me. Between watching for rude bikers and folks slamming on their brakes at red lightcamera intersections, my peaceful driving experience can be tense some days. When I do ride, I drive over to the lake path then unload my bike to cruise around there. No venom

  • Happy,
    I'm sorry for your anecdotal experience. I'm sure you know that the majority of bikers are probably courteous like you. There may be a contingent of morons who are not but I would like to think this isn't the majority. Motor vehicles and bikes share the same roadways in many of the world's major cities. I'm sure that can also be the case here. Education and accountability are key 😌

If you care what your neighborhood looks like but it's plagued by excessive littering, i have a simple challenge for you. And no lame excuses, I don't want to hear how busy you are, we can all spare 5 minutes a day, as well as a grocery bag.

So here's the challenge: Everyday walk up and down your block for 5 minutes picking up every piece of trash you see. Do this for a week and you are likely to see enough of a difference, that proves it's worth a continued effort.

As you put in your 5 minutes a day you might hear an inner voice that says something like; "This is beneath you.", "You have better things to do with my time." and/or "You'll look like a crazy street person." Ignore the 'trash talk' and instead say to yourself "I'm ashamed of living on a block that looks so bad.", "This is so simple and easy... a preschooler could do it." and the inevitable logical conclusion in question "WTF is wrong with people?" I prefer/recommend some variation of the later... anger is a great motivator. ;D

Now if you happen to be a doggie-parent, you have zero excuse for at least picking up glass-bottles* as you go on your daily walk around the block... being that roughly a quarter of your time is spent idly standing and waiting for your pup to sniff and pee every other tree, shrub and light pole.

*Note: to decrease the chances of glass shards cutting paws

  • Todd Agosto Analyst/Investigator at Veritatem Cognoscere

    WOW you have great neighbors. No one comes out to help me and very few pickup litter in their own front yard. My guess is many if not all, are a bit too uppity to stoop so low. Literally and figuratively speaking, picking up trash is beneath them. ;D

  • Elder Preacher of The Gospel, community property owner .

    Keep up the good work. I salute you all and join in the effort.
