Fioretti did you think you'd win?

Fioretti, Don't you know when to drop out. Rahm 46% of vote so far. Fioretti 7%. 46 plus 7 equals 53% could have been to Rahm. Now more months to waste on campaign adds. Rahm your English negative campaign on Chuy let Non English speaking people see Chuys face all over the place and didn't have a clue if it was good or bad and Chuy learn how to say the word afford. Both F's should be heard.

  • @Merc- Fioretti's voters despise Emanuel. They would vote for Garcia, Wilson, or Walls before they'd cast a ballot for Emanuel.

    If you think the majority of Chuy's voters don't speak English you are as clueless as your buddy Emanuel.

it's a shame...

When I joined everyblock I was hoping that this would be another way to get information and stay connected to the neighborhood and whats going on thru honest and caring neighbors...

What this has turned out to be for the past few months is nothing but a forum for folks to down each and every person running for alderman...this forum has turned into a joke thanks to folks making up fake accounts, accusing candidates of everything under the sun, etc....

When I joined everyblock I was hoping that this would be another way to get information and stay connected to the neighborhood and whats going on thru honest and caring neighbors...

What this has turned out to be for the past few months is nothing but a forum for folks to down each and every person running for alderman...this forum has turned into a joke thanks to folks making up fake accounts, accusing candidates of everything under the sun, etc.

Thanks to all the honest people on here who try to bring information about the neighborhood to all of us so we can be informed citizens looking out for the best interest of our neighborhood. ..and to the rest...stop littering our forum with garbage,filth and ridiculousness about this upcoming election...this last go round that was posted half of the comments were deleted by everyblock...it just goes to show there is not an intelligent conversation going on when half of what was said can't be seen...stop it already! Take your garbage elsewhere!

Before anyone even thinks of posting some ridiculous hurtful comments let me say this..I'm not endorsing anyone for alderman..my account is real..and I have lived here for over 25 years...I'm a TRUE neighbor to Garfield ridge..this is my home....

  • Well I'm glad I'm not the only one who feels all this has gotten out of hand....the bad thing is these folks r getting kicked off every block and jump on again under a different name/avatar...

  • We on EVERYBLOCK make it what it is. If you don't want to talk negative then don't. If you have positive news or comments then write them. You're complaining like the ones your complaining about. Do you have something positive to add to Everyblock? I do and have. We can...

    We on EVERYBLOCK make it what it is. If you don't want to talk negative then don't. If you have positive news or comments then write them. You're complaining like the ones your complaining about. Do you have something positive to add to Everyblock? I do and have. We can talk about the best can opener or the best grocery store or how a mean neighbor said hi. Figure out something good to talk about and skip the complaining, just don't read what you don't want to read. How does that sound. That's what I recommend. This is a free place to express yourself whether good or bad it's still a good place to discuss incognito. Don't complain to take it away, please.

A new selective enrollment High School?

I received a letter from my precinct captain and in the letter it states a list of things the neighborhood has received. One of these things listed .... and a new selective enrollment High School will be coming to the southwest side of Chicago....

I live in Clearing and was wondering what high school because he didn't elaborate and where? I heard about the UNO School that was supposed to be in my neighborhood and I was not happy about...

I received a letter from my precinct captain and in the letter it states a list of things the neighborhood has received. One of these things listed .... and a new selective enrollment High School will be coming to the southwest side of Chicago....

I live in Clearing and was wondering what high school because he didn't elaborate and where? I heard about the UNO School that was supposed to be in my neighborhood and I was not happy about that, then that was not happening due to the laws they broke. Now this.

Does anyone know about this new school and what kind of school? Where it will be I hope not that part of 65th street Burbank getting annexed into Chicago for this school.

My precinct Captain denied knowing anything about UNO so I don't think I will get a straight answer.

Is this an UNO School? A Charter? Where is it going to be located?

  • You do have a choice for mayor. Anybody but Emanuel. If there is a runoff, you can bet Garcia will deliver much more for the SW Side than Emanuel.

  • Yes that was my only choice I could make. The others didn't have a choice.

What's happening with can openers?

Electric and handheld can openers are not opening cans without flip tops. Neither my husband or I are having much success. Anybody else having this problem, explain your situation. If you're having no problems with this, let me know what you are using to open cans and perhaps include the brand name. What gives???? I'm baffled!

  • I'm disabled and that's just a little thing in life that annoys me. My other problems can't be fixed here.

  • I purchased the Kuhn Rikon via QVC and just used it. I was hardly turning and I didn't even hear a puncture, I didn't think it was working because there was nothing to it. I decided to check it and it worked. I barely grabbed the edge with the little lifter and the lid came right off. Thank you everybody for your ideas and I'm so glad I asked. I'm no longer frustrated when opening cans.

Setting the Record Straight on Arteaga

Martin Arteaga will not address several issues:

Does he live in his parent's attic in order to run for Alderman of the 23rd Ward? All while having his real residency with the Mother of his child in 2117 Broadway St Blue Island. He also has his old drivers licence registered there.

You can find more information about him here: http://www.dirtsearch.org/cgi-bin/toolbar.cgi?fname=Martin&lname=Arteaga&statename=Illinois for free.

You can also view his criminal record with multiple arrest from 2007 to 2012. Charges are Domestic Abuse,...

Does he live in his parent's attic in order to run for Alderman of the 23rd Ward? All while having his real residency with the Mother of his child in 2117 Broadway St Blue Island. He also has his old drivers licence registered there.

You can find more information about him here: http://www.dirtsearch.org/cgi-bin/toolbar.cgi?fname=Martin&lname=Arteaga&statename=Illinois for free.

You can also view his criminal record with multiple arrest from 2007 to 2012. Charges are Domestic Abuse, but was dropped to a misdemeanor in a plea bargain. His ex-wife was on a date after breaking up with Arteaga. Arteaga then approached her date and beat him pretty bad. He also has a second conviction that was dropped to probation for being in a violent altercation.

For the record I use to be affiliated with the Arteaga Campaign. Not at the management level, but would go help out often. I live near his parent's house where until recently never heard of Martin Arteaga. His Sister suggested I help out to help add to my resume. I decided to stop going in because both my kids would come with me at times & one of them found drug paraphernalia while helping clean Mr. Arteaga's car. His office also reeked of Alcohol and Cigarettes. On top of catching Arteaga's staff posting on here several vicious attacks.

I was reluctant to post anything on here since the attacks are vicious, racist, and bigoted. However, the voters and citizens of the 23rd Ward deserve better. Here I was thinking I was electing a young, vibrant, latino to be our next Alderman. Sad to find out the hard way you can't trust a book by it's cover.

Fake profile people we are not interested in your cowardly post. We do want to hear from Team Arteaga on his criminal violent activity & his residency.

There is a picture attached with Mr. Arteaga's vehicle of his home in Blue Island. Anyone know what agency he should be reported too?

    HDO is very much alive and it's very much UNO

  • We need to know the truth pretty in pink! Does he or does he not live in the 23rd ward! I came on this site just to follow what's going on and I believe every candidate deservs a fair shot but Mr. A did not get my vote and never would!
