Now who will face Rahm?

Karen bowing out to heal from her brain surgery means Rahm just won another election. Can we start a betting pool? What will total voter turnout % be and how much will Rahm win by? We need to liven up this board!

  • @Rob...then why mention it? About 98% of all political workers in Chicago align with one or another sub tribe of the Democratic Party. So when you want to throw a barb you have to be much more precise or the affiliation is meaningless. BTW, in a parallel speech affectation foregoing the adjectival form, you could say there are almost no Republic workers. Which wouldn't be helpful without describing a sub tribal affiliation like RINO, Regular, or Tea Party

  • joanie Resident of Jefferson Park

    Rob the elderly who want assistance going to the polls are identified during campaign canvasses assessing support strength. I've brought elderly to the polls in the past too. I've had a few surprises too, like a couple little old ladies who pulled Republican ballots after being given a ride claiming to support a particular Democratic candidate. It's all in a days work. Many of these senior citizens wouldn't be able to vote without being given a ride to the polls.

CPS students can earn community service hours for participation with the Neighborhood Connection Project Winter Prep and Clean Up

We'll be raking, watering, planting, cleaning, mowing (and other things that end in "ing") our shared underpass and public space. Your help is needed to get this done. For more information on this fun way to improve your neighborhood, contact Kristin Ciarrachi (longtime Edgebrook resident) at kciarrachi@parkcommunitychurch.org.

For this effort, the Neighborhood Connection Project (NCP) is pleased to partner with yet another community institution, Park Community Church (located on Touhy Avenue across from Target).

For more information about the Neighborhood Connection Project, check us out on Facebook or contact Jac Charlier at jac.charlier@gmail.com or Gina Metelica at gina.metelica@gmail.com

As part of its vision to renew Chicago, Park Community seeks to build the goodness and greatness of the city we all love. As we continue to partner with community leaders, organizations and neighbors we seek to make a positive lasting difference throughout Chicago.

About NCP: Started in Spring of 2010, the Neighborhood Connection Project (NCP) is a citizen-led initiative to build community by repairing and beautifying the Metra railroad underpass located at Kinzua, Hiawatha and Lehigh. We were joined by our ongoing partners, Green Star Movement (GSM) and After School Matters (ASM). Phase I underpass beautification efforts were ready to begin and indeed started finally in Spring 2013. GSM worked with ASM's teen interns and our local artists and community volunteers to produce the mural on the East side of the underpass, which was completed in Summer 2013. We completed Phase II when the West wall work was completed in August 2014. During summer 2015 we will finish the project.

My name is Ahmed Khan and I will be working as one of the Northside Regional Field Organizers for Karen Lewis’ Mayoral campaign specifically responsible for wards 33, 38, 39, 41 and 45 among other North/Northwest side neighborhoods.

Karen is seriously considering running for Mayor in the 2015 City of Chicago elections and we need your help to get her on the ballot. At this time, we are looking for volunteers who believe in Karen to help gather signatures.

You can read more about Karen and myself at the end of this message.

There are a plethora of avenues for collecting signatures. You might be interested in:

• Going door to door in your neighborhood/precinct.
• Going door to door in other wards.
• Doing a morning or evening shift at a local CTA Train or Bus station.
• Collecting at high foot traffic street corners, parks, shopping centers, malls, movie theaters, and any special events.
• Simply keeping some petition sheets with you wherever you go and collecting!

If you are interested in any of the above, please contact me with:

1. Name
2. Ward you live in
3. Phone number
4. Email
5. General Availability
6. Can you help get more volunteers?

Feel free to contact me directly at (773) 800-0159 or at cityzenkhan@gmail.com and I will either work with you or put you in touch with the Organizer relevant to your ward.

I will be able to provide you a brief training and share clipboards, pens, and petition sheets and work with you to assess a schedule that would produce best results. If you don't fall in the wards I am covering, I can connect you with your region's coordinator.

We will be doing larger collection events in the near future and gatherings but also need people to be working on this daily.

Sincerely,
Ahmed Khan

Earlier this year in Skokie, Illinois one of those mishandling bomb shells was fully made known to the Skokie Police Department that drugs were being stolen from the Bensenville Christian Village elderly nursing home. The husband of Ilana Yavne who complained to police that his wife was acting irritated and argumentative. He explained that her behavior was brought on as the result of illegal medications that she was stealing from her employment and that the medication belongs to elderly patients.

YANVE, who resides in the 5200 Block of George Street in Skokie, Illinois had medication confiscated from her residents that belonged to at lease two patients. Skokie police claimed to not have legal jurisdiction over the matter however the officer who confiscated the prescription medication did not follow appropriate procedures and was discipline.

The Bensenville Police Department remain to investigate this matter as YANVE husband blames her drug abuse for her behavior issues and unfaithful in his marriage and to cause her to become delusional. Yavne was employed by Ilinois Home Health in Chicago and assigned to Bensenville, IL.

This should be someone you should be extremely cautious of as she may be in Chicago and the Northern area of Illinois seeking employment in nursing.
