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.

    This is just more duplication of services already available. A few weeks ago, I got a call from the Alderman's office that purported to be a "well-being check" since I am a senior citizen. I find such "solicitude" intrusive and an invasion of my privacy. It is not the job of the alderman to manage my life or even my well-being and that is all that you are proposing. The provision of city services can be effected by calling 311 or requesting such services on-line, there is no need for a "DISASTER HOTLINE". Such a thing, especially manned 18 hours a day is just another expensive boondoggle.

Water Reclamation District of Greater Chicago

We have all been affected with flooding, sewers backed up, ect,,, What should the Water Reclamation do for us? I visited their web-site and it was very difficult to get any information from.

I just heard that the commissioner is leaving his post to be an alderman replacing a alderman who has post traumatic stress disorder.

Besides that, shouldn't we be watching over this department to fix our water problems ?

    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?!

  • The sewer in front if the house next door has been sinking for years. Giant 2+ hole in parkway by sewer my property the house next 2 mine had all sinking holes as well in direct line.

63rd and Cicero

Does anybody know why a right turn only lane was not incorporated when the SE corner of 63rd and Cicero was redeveloped into green space? Please do not say because of the CTA.

There is so much space and a right turn only would have prevented long travel backups on Cicero Avenue and prevented grand central station on 64th and Kilpatrick, then through the alley over to Knox where people turn north on a one way street south, then out to 63rd, illegally potentially causing an accident.

    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!

    I like the idea of snail mail to a specific department head instead of using 311 or online requests, the decision-makers are more likely to see it. 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.

  • We got around 16 inches. Out of all 4 houses in our corner we were the only ones to get water. We are going to be installing a clean out and re-routing our gutters to try and alleviate what we feel may be the problem. Really hoping for no more flooded basements.

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.

    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. :-)

I've worked for the City of Chicago for 15 years, as a watchman, laborer, and the last 5 years as a ward coordinator under the Department of Street and Sanitation.  As a ward coordinator I was on the frontlines and had a chance to work closely with the Ward's Alderman. I had an Opportunity to be at the Alderman's side and assist in the day to day operation of a Chicago City Ward. I've been active in politics for the last 30 years from the grassroots up and am no stranger to Chicago politics.

I'm currently seeking to run for the seat of Alderman of the 13 Ward. I've lived there with my wife Kathy and 4 sons for 13 years. I'm currently a volunteer patient advocate at the University of Illinois Medical Campus. My goals for the 13th ward includes preventing violence in our community, providing vital services, and cleaning up our neighborhood, to bring a real change to the City of Chicago, and by offering my experience to better serve our community.

Also, I believe they signed the same petition as the Alderman's and perjured oneself. And was removed by the Chicago Board of Elections which is independent of Mike Madigan and anyone you think is conspiring to not have somebody on the ballot.

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.

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.

Let's talk development. Let's talk University Village. Do you remember when Maxwell Street was much rougher and grittier than it is today? I can remember and I am sure you do, too, because it was not very long ago. I spent time at UIC and I was able to play a key role in that community center development. The result was a successful redevelopment and the creation of the popular and much-patronized University Village. Residents and tourists no longer have to tolerate the grit, the abandoned buildings and the feeling of hopelessness that those things bring. Residents, tourists, students, passersby, and all can now enjoy walking, jogging, biking, and patronizing the safe and vibrant streets of University Village. This is a perfect example of how valuable resources can invested intelligently into the community so that EVERYBODY WINS.

To revitalize the 23rd Ward, we need community development and community outreach experience and HANDS ON LEADERSHIP. Throughout the ward we see vacant lots and abandoned buildings that are vandalized and underutilized. Let's take matters into our own hands. Let's revitalize the 23rd Ward. I'm ready and I'm up to the challenge.The time for change is now! We need to revitalize the Archer Avenue Business District and redevelop the area near Midway Airport. We need more business and jobs. This is what I will fight for as your next 23rd Ward Alderman.

next time you play dirty politics, don’t pay the accused out of your political bank account and give him your lawyer to defend the case, it makes you look guilty and arrogant.

Because it is the weekend, and I do not want to upset myself, I will not get into the other Zalewski Goon that was arrested for stealing opponents signs. From what I understand, Anna dropped the charges.

One stop job shop

Why not assist the 23rd Ward residents with finding jobs? I believe that one of the aldermen’s most important duties is to help their residents to pursue their career. Currently, there is not one source to go to and review positions available in government. City, County, State and Federal all have different locations to review and learn about their job openings. If elected, I want to make it easier for job seekers by having a JOB CENTER within my local aldermanic office. Residents can come in and browse to see what positions are available. My aldermanic staff will be assigned to working with job applicants in helping them in filling out their applications.

Private driveway ordinance???

I always thought there was a city law against unauthorized public parking in the space directly in front of an entrance/exit to a private home's driveway ( i.e. blocking access to it by the homeowners and household's visitors
own vehicles).

That is happening more than I can ever remember, in front of my residence and I want to put a stop to it. Before I copy the license plate number and turn it over to the police for ticketing (and...

I always thought there was a city law against unauthorized public parking in the space directly in front of an entrance/exit to a private home's driveway ( i.e. blocking access to it by the homeowners and household's visitors
own vehicles).

That is happening more than I can ever remember, in front of my residence and I want to put a stop to it. Before I copy the license plate number and turn it over to the police for ticketing (and or towing), I want to inform any new people on the block of my intent so they have fair advance warning. Therefore, I would like to know the exact city ordinance (if there is one). I have looked, but cannot locate anything.

If anyone out there knows, I would be obliged if the ordinance was posted here. You would think common sense and neighborly courtesy would be enough, but even "neighbors" these days don't often do the right thing....

Thanks for any assistance in locating such an ordinance.

  • You could also call your Alderman's office and they will have revenue officers coem and ticket. Or you could do what I have done at our CAPS meeting (813/833) we have flyers that explain the ordiance and on several occasions it has worked.

    Wondering if there is an ordinance/reg prohibiting blocking the only access to private parking. A permitted block party barricaded access (ingress or egress) into a private parking lot which butts up against the closed residential street. Normally, the folks involved in the block party are great and in 11 years the situation has always been a non-issue. This year it was different. No notice was given to the owners of the cars in the parking lot that the street would be closed and ingress/egress would be limited, and it was "oh well, you just can't get out". Can they really do this? What is my recourse, if anything? Thanks much!
