Why are the 21st Ward Interested Parties for Alderman Scared to Address the 87th Street Situation

It's apparent to me that the interested parties for 21st Ward Alderman are going to ignore the new 21st ward constituents coming from Chatham. Although Chatham residents have loudly stated their displeasure with the cadre of vendors, phony fundraising, buckets boys, etc.it appears that if those who are announced intentions to run will turn a deaf ear to their concerns. Again, there is an ordinance that prohibits solicitation of any kind that runs from 87th Ryan to Western on the...

It's apparent to me that the interested parties for 21st Ward Alderman are going to ignore the new 21st ward constituents coming from Chatham. Although Chatham residents have loudly stated their displeasure with the cadre of vendors, phony fundraising, buckets boys, etc.it appears that if those who are announced intentions to run will turn a deaf ear to their concerns. Again, there is an ordinance that prohibits solicitation of any kind that runs from 87th Ryan to Western on the west and another one that runs from the Ryan to Cottage Grove on the East.. So I guess the 21st ward doesn't start until Halsted and runs West for election purposes because these same individuals were silent on the Concepts Charter- Clay Evans debacle.

Do any of you have some courage to refute me?

    Refute you ?? You keep articulating the same small misguided thinking, we get it, you hate bucket boys and "looking ghetto" !! And again I say,

    Candidates for aldermen are full of bright ideas, saying;
    When I become Alderman I'm going to fill these darn potholes!

    Refute you ?? You keep articulating the same small misguided thinking, we get it, you hate bucket boys and "looking ghetto" !! And again I say,

    Candidates for aldermen are full of bright ideas, saying;
    When I become Alderman I'm going to fill these darn potholes!
    When I become Alderman I am going to clean this empty lot!
    When I become Alderman I am going to reopen the electrician class at Simeon!
    Really? How? These candidates speak as though their mere presence in City Hall with their bright ideas will make city council sit, bark and roll over! None of these candidates have offered a plan to make their bright ideas REALITY, but it's not their fault.

    These candidates are only doing what they have seen work for Alderman, after Alderman, after Alderman for decades. Offer bright ideas, get in front of cameras and profess your outrage, create a headline and YOU, CC of C will vote for them.
    The only way to make things happen in City Hall is to organize the votes in your community into a voting bloc! This is the only thing City Hall fears, respects and reacts to, other than dollars. The truly powerful aldermen know this. The truly powerful aldermen know that if they organize and direct the votes in their wards, department heads will listen, mayors will listen, state representatives will listen, and not only do they listen, but they move when that voting bloc says move.

    Alderman Burke picks up a phone and potholes get filled, he picks up a phone and debris gets removed from vacant lots. How did Alderman Burke get that type of power and influence in a Rahm Emmanuel administration? Alderman Burke organized and directed 87% of the votes in his ward AWAY from Rahm Emanuel. NOW, after exercising the POWER of that voting bloc, everybody listens!!

    Instead of doing the hard work of organizing a power base by organizing a voting bloc that will demand fear, respect and action, these candidates talk about their bright ideas and expect to enter city hall and ask better, or ask more forcefully, or ask the right person.

    *The state of our community is too critical for us to continue doing what we have always done*

    We must stop voting for bright ideas with no plan.
    We must stop voting for the person on television
    We must stop voting for our soror or fraternity brother
    We must stop voting to get election time gifts (contracts, streets fixed, seasonal jobs)

    We have an opportunity to take control of our city council, take control of our Board of Education and take control of our community, but only if we elect candidates citywide, that understand how to organize a community network, inform and mobilize the community into a power base, and how to use that Power base to make things happen.

    POWER not Permission

  • Clap Clap Clap, bravo for the speech. Ok, you are going to go into city hall and tell Rahm "he's going to give you the TIF Money", he's going to create jobs in your community, blah blah blah. Got to get elected first sport.

The fight is not over, It has just begun.

The was a rally protesting the closing of Simeon's Auto and electrical shops. This can not take place. The buck stops at the mayors' feet and Ald. Brookins is again asleep at the switch. If we lose these shops the mayor and alderman will pay at the polls.

New charter school for at risk youths

I recently learned that Emmanuel Christian Church has entered into an agreement w/ CPS to open an alternative high school at 83 rd & Damen. No community engagement efforts just trying to slip in without notice. Smh!

    You and your neighbors need to DEMAND CPS send out the head of alternative schools and explain what is happening. Alternative schools are not all the same and you need to know what kind of school is coming. We had Richard Milburn for 1.5 years and had trouble as it is a school for youth who are expelled from CPS and CPS approved alternative schools. It is a school that had to have armed security guards. Once we got on CPS and the archdiocese of Chicago they moved, Many of the churches that once had schools are looking for ways to generate revenue from the spaces since the school closed.

    Wow! This is very concerning. I will do just that. Thank you.

Protests to keep Simeon Career Academy auto and electrical shops open

There will be a rally Monday 6:00pm at Simeon Career Academy to protest the closings of the auto and electrical shops. I will also have petitions there to have signed and delivered to Ald. Brookins to demand that he prevent the closings. With the state of black young unemployment in this city we can not let this happen
