Public Housing Reunions Article

Hello! My name is Mari Cohen and I'm a reporter for the South Side Weekly, a newsmagazine covering arts, politics, and culture on the South Side. I'm working on a piece about people who used to live in public housing projects and still attend reunions with their former neighbors. If this is you and you would be willing to do a brief interview in the next few days about your reunions and why they're important to me, please let me know! Look forward to speaking.

    So far, based on what i've gathered, all the candidates are promoting the same game plan, with very little differences and where they differ they provide no concrete answer on how they will create change. Being that the incumbent already has a track record of putting the game plan in action, people will most likely vote for the guy they already know versus take a gamble on someone new who is promising more of the same.

    As for who i want to win, it's a mute point, my candidate is not in the race.

    I agree the 20th ward needs a new alderman. There are no real grocery stores, restaurants or retail. Also, crime is out of control. In fact, the Manager of the McDonalds was shot in the head inside the restaurant just last night. This ward hasn't improved at all under the current alderman. In regards to Quinn, he was Gov. for 6 years and I can't name you one improvement to the 20th ward. In fact, I just read that African Americans held less then 1% of state contracts under his administration.

The 2015 Mayoral Election

  • Dr. Magic Stuck In South Shore Since 2011

    I don't vote for Democrats. Therefore I won't be paying attention to any Chicago elections. 😎

  • Todd Agosto Analyst/Investigator at Veritatem Cognoscere

    Good point, all they are promising are slight edits of the same playbook. More of an illusion of choice/change than an actual choice/change. Though the same could be said with a Republican in the mix. Both parties are in bed with each other and are beholden to many of the same benefactors.

  • Todd Agosto Analyst/Investigator at Veritatem Cognoscere

    With that said, there is one candidate that stands out from the rest. Not necessarily as a contender but more of a character. Anyone have a clue who i'm referring to?

Experienced Handyman needed for Condo Repairs

Hello Neighbors,

I am beginning the search for a new handyman that could assist with a variety of tasks around the house, from floors, to paint, to drywall, and all things in between. Specifically, I'm looking for an experienced, preferably referred, handyman/contractor who is diligent and knowledgeable about condos and have done great work. If the work is great, I could recommend the individual to the association as we are also in search for a new building maintenance person.

Price is obviously a concern for everyone, so someone who's reasonable in rates would be greatly appreciated!!

Thanks all, God Bless..

Who's "Kevin Bailey for 20th Ward"

I've never heard of Kevin Bailey until today, when i saw his campaign poster stapled to a boarded-up greystone up the block from me.

  • JD Concerned Citizen in the 20th Ward

    Amen.

    Awomen.

  • JD Concerned Citizen in the 20th Ward

    . . . and on a related note -

    CTU President Karen Lewis will be in The Grand Ballroom tomorrow (Saturday, January 24th) at 11 o'clock, participating in a rally for mayoral candidate Jesus Garcia. It will be very interesting to see which candidates for 20th Ward alderman have the guts to stand with her. ('Anybody think the incumbent will be there, even though his office is on the 1st floor - directly under The Grand Ballroom?)

1 dead, 4 others wounded in shootings on West, South sides

About 7:30 p.m., a 32-year-old man was shot in the buttocks and thigh in the 1500 block of East 66th Place, Lemmon said. The man was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital, where his condition was stabilized.

This article has 5 other Chicago locations (Show)

The fatal shooting happened on the 2100 block of West Warren Boulevard on the city's Near West Side, said Chicago Police Department News Affairs Officer Veejay Zala.

According to preliminary reports, a 21-year-old man arrived at the emergency room of  John H. Stroger, Jr. Hospital of Cook County and said he had been shot near Hoyne Avenue and Warren Boulevard, said Officer Ana Pacheco.

Most recently, a 23-year-old man was shot in the heel in the 800 block of South Albany Avenue, said Police spokeswoman Officer Bari Lemmon. The man's condition was stabilized at Mount Sinai Hospital. He told police he had been on the street when a green SUV pulled up and someone fired shots at him.

Another man was shot about 12:27 p.m. on the 6900 block of South Dante Avenue in the city's Grand Crossing neighborhood, said Pacheco.

The boy was standing at a corner on the 2600 block of West 63rd Street when a black vehicle pulled up and shortly after he felt pain, said Zala. The boy was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital with a gunshot wound to the buttocks, he said.
