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

One hour of your time is kindly requested on Saturday, October 4 between 10am-12pm to help get the bricolage underpass mural ready for winter and cleaned 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.
