New Alderman in the 13th ward?

Do you think we need a new Alderman in our ward? Come on people sound off let your opinions. Be heard!

  • Alderman should meet Raul and put this all to rest.

  • Latinos for Marty is a joke. When he can't respond to facts about the 100% rubber stamp for Emanuel, TIF dollars, train traffic, selective enrollment schools, he says I should be BANNED. Maybe that is how they want to do it in Madiganistan (he probably picked up that from his...

    Latinos for Marty is a joke. When he can't respond to facts about the 100% rubber stamp for Emanuel, TIF dollars, train traffic, selective enrollment schools, he says I should be BANNED. Maybe that is how they want to do it in Madiganistan (he probably picked up that from his Turkish buddies in the Gulen Movement), but not here. As far as solutions go, we have many. Unfortunately, like Judy said the clout crooks have a lock on the ward. As a result, we have to suffer and act appreciative when a pothole gets patched or a tree gets trimmed.

    The bigger problem is Marty's boss won't even let him talk about the issues. He needs to grow a pair and stand up to Madigan and Emanuel instead of being their loyal b boy. The machine isn't working for the SW side.

    Oh, and I am registered to vote in the 13th, vote every election, and this is my name. Are you smart enough to figure it out? Hilarious that I have you worried enough that you went to check. While we're on the subject, you are TOTALLY anonymous... that is unless you are Marty Quinn himself.

Raise Chicago Ordinance

We should all have awareness of the Raise Chicago ordinance! Please research and post your thoughts. Should this ordinance pass on the state level, will it make a difference, is it fair collectively? What do you think?

Helicopter hovering

today (9-18) at 2:15pm to around 3pm a helicopter was hovering around 63rd and St. Louis... Does anyone have any idea why? Just curious

  • 30+ yrs Long-time resident, trying to help keep it livable

    Sometimes it's just as easy to go into the Police Station @ 63rd & St.louis, if any one would & should know............
    And, you know they do have Caps meetings where maybe they could answer that.

  • MT6

    They are looking for illegals in the neighborhood.

  • Must be, we have so many Italians, Irish, Polish, Asians, Ukrainians, Indians, Palestinians, and Hispanics.... Bless the country for its diversity...

Burglaries over night increasing & attempted luring

I follow a page on FB ''Southwest Chicago Post" that provides updates on Ashburn/Scottsdale/West Lawn Communities.
Please be vigilant! Watch your kids!
Make sure all windows and doors are locked. Get an alarm.
I keep a light on my porch all night and I'm about to order motion light and security camera. These burglars don't just want to take your things - they also want to harm you physically. It's about protecting yourself and your family.

Chicago PD Chopper in Wrightwood/Ashburn Area?

Did anyone else catch the helicopter with a searchlight over the Wrightwood/Ashburn area tonight a little after 8pm? The searchlight was on, obviously the police are hunting for somebody but I didn't catch any noise about it on the scanner(s). Has anybody got a clue as to the story behind this little manhunt? I didn't notice heavier squad activity throughout the neighborhood. Just curious...

change in ward 13

Who else think that we need a change from the status quo. sound off here and let your voice be heard.

  • Yes I voted and yes im registered, no to volunteering I'm not for the status quo.

  • Here's a bit of info for the 23th ward stop and save on Archer received 3 million dollars in TIF funds then donated $13.000 to the Alderman campaign. Makes me wonder how much is spent in the 13th ward and who recieved it.

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. Called sewer dept water ward office pictures taken mesurement etc. is an issue not large enough we were told. So far a senior a dog & a toddler have fallen in the hole. Filled with dirt continues to sink hmm

Day Care Centers in neighborhood

If anybody knows me, I'm not writing this to give any addresses or do anything. I just want opinions or facts if anybody has any.

Do neighborhood day care centers and multiple housing in single family house cause sewer system problems?
