Austin Ave closure

The train going through the neighborhood with 200+ carts is bad enough without having to avoid austin because its closed.

Re: Was Aldermanic Candidate Paulino Villareal fired from the Sherifs Department?

Is this true?!?!

Re: Yesterday I volunteered to register new voters in Southwest Chicago. As an Hispanic Woman I found it offensive when a Caucasian Man told me, "I guess its your guys (Meaning Hispanics) turn to take over according to Paulino Villareal". He then explained to me that Mr. Villareal is a candidate for Alderman in the 23rd Ward.

Is this true?!?!

Re: Yesterday I volunteered to register new voters in Southwest Chicago. As an Hispanic Woman I found it offensive when a Caucasian Man told me, "I guess its your guys (Meaning Hispanics) turn to take over according to Paulino Villareal". He then explained to me that Mr. Villareal is a candidate for Alderman in the 23rd Ward. He told me to google a video that circulated online via social media: http://youtu.be/PMFlYdv8Wbw and then another of him answering questions from what seems to be a reporter: http://youtu.be/D-8gXm3p9f4. The man then ranted about Mr. Villareal's losing his job as an officer for a gun related incident, abusing his power, and beating his wife. He then went off on how Mr. Villareal stated that if he were elected, he would put on a bullet proof vest, carry a gun, and patrol the streets.

Since I had never heard of this, all I could tell this man was that I would look it up. Then explained to him that I might be of Hispanic Heritage, but I am an American,educated, Tax Payer, who served my country. Then told him that Mr. Villareal does not represent most Hispanics view. We are not trying to take over!!! We have the same American Dream as the next person, no matter their background.

After watching the videos I was speechless that Mr. Villareal spoke as if he had a "Latino Manifest Destiny" to prove. So I am not sure what or who to believe. Just hope Latinos/Hispanics don't just vote for him because of his race. After all look at how Alderman Solis sold out the Latino/Hispanic community in Pilsen.

What I do know is that as a Latina/Hispanic/American/Woman/Human, Mr. Villareal will not be getting my vote. Especially if he is rumored to been fired for abusing his power as an Officer and abusive. I hope those are just rumors, but even then just from watching his stump speech and interview his point of being "Officer Alderman" is ludicrous.

It takes more than a Spanish Surname to win my vote!

DISASTER HOTLINE for the 23rdWard!

When a disaster strikes, people look for help and expect to get it from their elected officials. These past several months, we have faced cruel weather conditions where heavy rains and gusty winds left many residents with flooded basements, downed trees, damaged roofs, downed power lines and broken gas mains. Many of these conditions could be life threatening. People lost electricity, needed additional trash pick-ups, required prompt assistance to have sewers opened up, etc. It is unfortunate, that in 19...

When a disaster strikes, people look for help and expect to get it from their elected officials. These past several months, we have faced cruel weather conditions where heavy rains and gusty winds left many residents with flooded basements, downed trees, damaged roofs, downed power lines and broken gas mains. Many of these conditions could be life threatening. People lost electricity, needed additional trash pick-ups, required prompt assistance to have sewers opened up, etc. It is unfortunate, that in 19 years of alderman Zalewski being in the office, residents have not gotten the assistance they deserve, but help is on the way.
If elected, I will create an aldermanic DISASTER HOTLINE with open phone lines, not just a recording, to assist and provide information to residents of the 23rd Ward. My aldermanic staff and I will answer phones from 6am till midnight during any emergency to provide answers, take requests and expedite outage repairs. The residents would be able to call my office to find out when electricity will be restored, downed trees cleaned up or how to get assistance in pumping water from their basements. These are issues the public deserves to be helped with. It is just the right thing to do when people need help.

    Typical of a politician - throw out a position and let evreyone distort the comment so that people forget the original position and then you don't have to answer any questions. Plus you get all this free online p/r.

Are the public servants we elect competent enough for the job? Should our public officials take IQ tests, or equivalency exams? I want someone in office who can balance out their own checking account before putting their hands in my pocket.

Source: Medilll Reports Chicago / Public Record - Recorder of Deeds.

I wasn't sure if you could file for bankruptcy multiply times, so I goggled it.

How Often Can You File For Bankruptcy?

Bankruptcy is a legal process that is designed to help both consumers and businesses eliminate their debt or repay the debt under the protection of bankruptcy court. Presently there are no limits to the number of times you can file for bankruptcy. Bankruptcy law determines the length of time between filing for bankruptcy and multiple filings may result in debt that is not discharged if it appears you are abusing bankruptcy laws.

    Something is definitely wrong with the sewer systems in the Clearing neighborhood. There is a sewer behind my house in the alley that is collapsing and filled with debris and it took me several calls to 311 and finally to the Dept of Water Management today. Someone tried to tell me that was not the reason why I had over a foot of water in my basement last Friday. But my home is very old (1912) and there is a catch basin in our yard that is supposed to drain to that alley sewer and it cannot drain properly with debris in it. I also mentioned that it didn't matter what he thought was the cause because I am still paying that Dept every year for water and sewer fees and why am I paying for a sewer that is not working!? Supposedly, someone will be sent out today to investigate this issue. But it seems very odd to me that in 2010 and last weeks flooding had no impact on the airport. It makes me wonder how much water is rerouted from that area to not cause major impact there?!

    I'm convinced that the people who make these decisions often do so without any real knowledge or regard for how traffic flows in a particular neighborhood. I'd recommend that you provide this information to the city's traffic management department (find out the names of the two people at the top and send them a letter) and your alderman; perhaps have some of the people affected by the traffic on Kilpatrick and Knox (and the alley!) also join in.

    I've had great luck getting things done in Chicago by going in with the right attitude: Be factual and civil in describing the problem and its effects on the residents; make your suggestions for a possible solution; and ask for a response. Also provide your full name, address and phone number so they can get back to you. I once received a phone call from the mayor (Gene Sawyer at the time) because I cc'd him on a letter that I sent about something. Another time I described a situation with an extra-high curb on Madison & LaSalle Streets causing problems for pedestrians, and within 10 days it was rebuilt.

    Good luck!

Send a copy of your letter to the mayor and your alderman. Maybe even include a copy to the Illinois DOT as well -- who knows? Throw it out there and see what happens.

    It may take a little while, but you can feel proud when your efforts pay off and you solve this problem. I'm still shaking my head about the alley traffic and people driving the wrong way down the one-way street! At the very least, there should be a squad car parked there (maybe send a copy of your letter to the police district too!). :-)

3ft of sewer water in basement from drain and toilet

Did anyone else have major flooding in basement? We now have 3 ft of dirty water in our basement not going down. Came up through drains and toilet. It also smells like gas.

Our amazing team of community organizers started with just 10 salons and now we have more than double that. Team A23 is all about working with the community to benefit the entire 23rd Ward both east and west side of Cicero Ave. This is the kind of leadership and community outreach you can expect when we get Martin Arteaga elected to be the next 23rd Ward Alderman.

With many families struggling and living paycheck to paycheck in the 23rd Ward of Chicago we understand how costly “Going Back To School” time can be for families. That is why A23 Field Organizers went out to Local Hair Salons in the 23rd Ward to help offset the cost of Haircuts for Back to School at just $5.00 MONDAY TO THURSDAY starting August 18th-21st & August 25th-28th . Just present your school ID or print the coupon below and give to one of the following participating Hair Salons below.

Call for an appointment or if you have any questions call the Martin Arteaga for 23rd Ward Alderman’s office at 708-505-9166 or email info@arteaga23.com.

Working together we can bring the CHANGE the 23rd Ward needs! Thank you to all the hair salons and barber shops that have participated.

Please visit our website at www.move23forward.com for a complete list of salons as we continue to reach out to local businesses.

    Yep, Hammertime..I am here also! Jen was not demonize get anyone, but simply asking how giving away their services is helping the financial crisis of the business owners andtheir employees. For example, if I owed a salon that offered this deal for $5 and my usual price is $10 for a haircut, where is the other $5 dollars coming from? Did A23 supplement this effort by paying the deficit or just expected the owners to take a loss? Most salons and barbershops rent chairs to stylist and barbers, so they can service teir clients. Subsequently,they earn money in order topay their rent to owner. If stylists are asked to reduce their fee, it reduces the money they have to pay their personal bills and the rent to the owner. Again, stop getting bent out of shape, because someone calls your person to the carpet on an issue. This should be a warning to voters that A23 is about fluff and might skirt the issues once in office!

  • Actually most of these salons had similar promotions going on and were happy to join in. They had the option to say no, pick 1 day, or all 4 days. Of course there were people who said no but the majority of the salons that didn't participate was due to the fact that they were short staffed. Personally I think that with 40 salons this promotion was a success and we appreciate and thank all the salons/barber shops that participated. :-)
