    I agree with Arena's support of the teachers union and all unions in general. I will give credit where credit is due.

Fair Allocation in Runways (FAiR) Coalition: Meet the Chicago Mayoral Candidates Live and In Person

Greetings Neighbors! The FAiR Coalition invites you to meet the Chicago Mayoral Candidates on Wednesday, Dec 3. The meeting is open to FAiR members and those interested in finding solutions to the massive increase in planes, noise and pollution at O'Hare and Midway. Remember the changes at both airports were done without any real community input.

Greetings Neighbors! The FAiR Coalition invites you to meet the Chicago Mayoral Candidates on Wednesday, Dec 3. The meeting is open to FAiR members and those interested in finding solutions to the massive increase in planes, noise and pollution at O'Hare and Midway. Remember the changes at both airports were done without any real community input.

The next FAiR general meeting is on Wednesday, 12/3 from 7-9pm at the VFW Hall at 10 W. Higgins in Park Ridge. Please RSVP/let us know if you are coming to info@fairchicago.org or via the FAiR Website www.fairchicago.org using the "Contact Us" link.

As part of the meeting, you will have a chance to meet in person, hear from and ask questions of several of the Chicago Mayoral candidates. Confirmed to be there so far are Commissioner Jesus "Chuy" Garcia and Alderman Bob Fioretti. All Mayoral candidates including Mayor Emanuel have been invited. This will be the 11th request sent to Mayor Emanuel to meet with FAiR. He has ignored, dismissed and not responded to the previous 10 requests.

For all FAiR members whether you live in Chicago or you live outside of Chicago, it is no overstatement to say that this next FAiR meeting is the single most important gathering we have had and one that you must attend. Why?

Simply, the solutions FAiR seeks fly right through the Mayor's office. The Chicago Mayor owns and controls the airports serving the entire region, O'Hare and Midway, and the Mayor is the last and only missing piece at the table FAiR has created. With the right Mayor or the current Mayor doing the right thing, the success we seek is well within our reach. You can see why it is critical you attend.

One final item, FAiR does not endorse candidates for elected office. We present candidates to the membership to decide who is most closely aligned with solutions to the massive increase in planes, noise and pollution we are all experiencing.

  • Hello Jac,

    Any chance of getting a follow up report of the meeting for those whose old bones don't like getting out in this cold weather?

    Dennis

  • pattymelt is mostly in charge

    @Dennis: If you think the issue is important, you really should try to attend. If the turnout is poor, the candidates will think most people in the neighborhood do not think the airplane noise is a big deal.

Users on everyblock

neighbors, without sparking to much debate I am curious your views on something. Lots of accusations by many about others having multiple names, then there are the opinions that are often strong and heated by folks who clearly want to remain hidden. These opinions as you know can be everything from neighborhood issues to business reviews. What's your thoughts on that issue? Should EB revamp and require neighbors to display who they are? Just general thoughts and I'm sincerely curious what you all think on the subject

  • Dennis 25 year Jefferson Park resident

    So Joanie, are you saying 2 alderman are cyber stalking you?

  • joanie 20+ year Resident of Jefferson Park

    No that isn't what I said nor inferred. I'm someone who actually lives in the community and they know me. They're decent family men and well known because of their positions on the City Council.

North Edgebrook residents express concern about Touhy traffic congestion

Touhy runs along Niles/Chicago border. Village is looking at ideas to help relieve congestion, according to Alderman Marry O'Connor (41st).

  • Just for the record, if I had Harry Potter’s magic wand I would make both Moody and Melvina cul-de-sacs at the north end immediately south of the allies and make the north half of Hiawatha at Lehigh a half cul-de-sac like the one on Hiawatha at Navajo and Devon. This...

    Just for the record, if I had Harry Potter’s magic wand I would make both Moody and Melvina cul-de-sacs at the north end immediately south of the allies and make the north half of Hiawatha at Lehigh a half cul-de-sac like the one on Hiawatha at Navajo and Devon. This would force traffic to go around the North Edgebrook/Wildwood triangle instead of cutting through it (the shortest distance between two points continues to be a straight line) as it does now.

    The argument against cul-de-sacs has always been that they also prevent emergency vehicles from entering a street and my counter argument is that I think that some place some where a traffic engineer could design a cul-de-sac barrier that would allow an emergency vehicle to pass through if such a design doesn't already exist some place some where.

    The second argument against cul-de-sacs is that they cost a lot of money and my counter argument is that the North Edgebrook /Wildwood triangle pays a lot of money in property taxes so we will be getting back what we already pay in.

    Dennis

  • Addendum: This would also give rise to the opportunity to close Hiawatha between SMOW and Wildwood school during school hours creating a car free campus zone.
