Shameful Organization: Calumet Heights Community Association!

This organization held a "community forum" for the candidates in the 7th Ward run-off election this afternoon at Trinity Hospital. The leader Mr. Coleman Conley actually attacked Mr. Mitchell and conducted the meeting in a very disrespectful manner. This is an Illinois non-profit organization that needs to be looked into and reported to the Attorney General's office. As a resident of Calumet Heights I find what transpired to be very disturbing and against the laws for non-profit organizations!

This organization held a "community forum" for the candidates in the 7th Ward run-off election this afternoon at Trinity Hospital. The leader Mr. Coleman Conley actually attacked Mr. Mitchell and conducted the meeting in a very disrespectful manner. This is an Illinois non-profit organization that needs to be looked into and reported to the Attorney General's office. As a resident of Calumet Heights I find what transpired to be very disturbing and against the laws for non-profit organizations!

The members of the organization should be ashamed of themselves for allowing themselves to be "puppets" for this man and subject to this nonsense! We will ask that the State look into the financials of the organization and all the members who belong as well. Many of us left along with Mr. Mitchell and his staff and he will receive our vote on April 7th!

Natahsa, you do not fool any of the "thinking" people of the Ward! Your tactics and desperate acts are a direct indication of your disrespect for the people you say you represent. If you do the math, 75% of the voters do not want to "retain" you to represent them moving forward. Now let's talk about the people or person who funded your losing campaign........time to apply for another "online" job!

  • Happy making better choices

    Wish I would have known about the forum. What made it so bad?

Winners and losers in Mayor Rahm's TIF game

It's sad to say, but many of Mayor Rahm's most loyal aldermanic supporters come from wards that get the least in the great TIF scam.
Some reformers I know are a little down in the dumps after Mayor Emanuel trounced them in last week's TIF showdown.

It's sad to say, but many of Mayor Rahm's most loyal aldermanic supporters come from wards that get the least in the great TIF scam.
Some reformers I know are a little down in the dumps after Mayor Emanuel trounced them in last week's TIF showdown.
That is, when they tried to get the City Council to force the mayor to spend some of the millions he's got stashed in his TIF slush funds on our dirt-broke public schools, most of the aldermen buckled under pressure from the boss.
Still, I don't see last Wednesday's vote as a total loss. Think of it this way—Aldermen Scott Waguespack, Robert Fioretti, Rick Munoz, Toni Foulkes, and their progressive colleagues smoked out the mayor's loyalists, forcing them to concede that they'd rather let Emanuel squander millions than adequately fund the public schools. So at least we know where everyone stands—the boss is first, the kids come last. He not only strong-armed the aldermen into abandoning whatever principles they might have, but also commanded them to read from the talking points his aides conveniently distributed. Other aldermen defended the TIF program. I can understand why Alderman Burnett's so effusive about tax increment financing. One of the program's central flaws is that it favors gentrifying wards, like his, over poor ones.
Thus, the program that's intended to help the poorest of the poor neighborhoods largely benefits richer ones, like the near-west- and near-north-side communities Alderman Burnett represents. Through 2010, the city spent about $197 million in TIF dollars on various projects in the 27th

Ward. In contrast, the city spent about $7.9 million in Alderman Anthony Beale's far poorer south-side 9th Ward. Those who got, get more. And those who don't got, get the shaft.
It's pretty sad that the mayor's most dependable TIF supporters represent the wards that fare the worst in this ongoing scam.

Sixth Ward residents make sure you get to the polls and vote to reelect Alderman Roderick T. Sawyer. Chicago, at this point, cannot afford on-the-job training in any ward

  • Jeff Janulis CAPS Rep

    Rod Sawyer being the poster child of how a ward sinks when a rookie takes the helm (punked out on ward remap, doesn't know how much salt is on hand, anti-Rahm to the extreme with disastrous impact on the ward...). The 6th ward has a severe case of buyers remorse and can correct that on Tuesday.

    Plus anyone that aligns themselves with a domestic violence abuser of women is very suspect in my book.

  • Glenn in 60619 Concerned citizen and independent journalist

    So according to your logic Mr Janulis the incumbent is supposed to remain the incumbent forever. The previous alderman and her predecessor had their first terms in office as Rid Sawyer does now. I would strongly suggest you travel throughout the ward more and take notice of the scores, if...

    So according to your logic Mr Janulis the incumbent is supposed to remain the incumbent forever. The previous alderman and her predecessor had their first terms in office as Rid Sawyer does now. I would strongly suggest you travel throughout the ward more and take notice of the scores, if not hundreds of infrastructure improvements involving sidewalks, curb cuts, street lights, etc. The retail corridor the alderman has been working on will enhance the quality of life for countless residents.
    Despite your highly personal problems with the alderman, take heart that you too will benefit from his re-election

  • Jeff Janulis CAPS Rep

    So according to your logic, "Rid" deserves credit for spending the Menu Money ? A trained seal or even a newspaper editor could do the same thing.

    As for the incumbent staying in office, "Forever"...they should remain until a better alternative comes along, in the case of ward 6, that...

    So according to your logic, "Rid" deserves credit for spending the Menu Money ? A trained seal or even a newspaper editor could do the same thing.

    As for the incumbent staying in office, "Forever"...they should remain until a better alternative comes along, in the case of ward 6, that didn't happen. The people of the 8th, 34th and 9th ward get it...the people of ward 6, still thinking they are bougie, are suffering from them being so smart as to turn out an incumbent with seniority...that is why most black wards are in the state they are in, black alderman have a hard time getting seniority because black folk think they so smart and turn them out before they can get seniority and committee chairmanships, save for the three previously mentioned.
    "Rid" will never be a committee chair and always be on the outside yapping and looking in....and the people of the ward will suffer as a consequence....with little "benefit" inuring to me and others.
