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

    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.

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
Regional Field Organizer
Karen Lewis for Mayor

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.

Chicago Police Torture

From 1972 until 1993 Jon Burge tortured over 200 African American and Latino men to confess to crimes in which many never committed. Burge tortures were able to successful continue despite his removal from the Chicago Police Department in 1993.

Burge nor any detective working under his command that tortured criminal suspects were ever charged with torture, mainly as pointed out by the Cook County Special Prosecutor in 2006, Burge and other detectives should have been charged, however he nor any detective that worked under his command could be charged as the statute of limitations expired.

In 2008, Burge alone was charged with perjury and obstruction of justice for lying about the tortures. In 2010 he was found guilty on all charges and subsequently in January, 2011 sentenced to four and a half years in a federal prison.

Burge is set to walk out of a federal prison this October, 2014. Be aware that Burge continues to collect a pension of more then 37 hundred dollars a month. He should be considered armed and dangerous, someone that may have influence with other corrupt cops in the city of Chicago.

    I think the post is appropriate for EB. It is a community issue, along with the others that are listed, for several reasons. 1) Torture by police is wrong. It is against our democratic values. For that reason alone we as a community can discuss it. Maybe somebody here had that happen to them but absent this posting would not know others cared. 2) Our community has the right to a police department free of unethical conduct and those demands can come from our community and the citizenry. 3) The implications for taxpayers are enormous. Along with other settlements, the dollars add up and it is paid for by taxpayers. 4) Open conversation is important...EB is ideal for allowing this to take place. Other sites have a different "feel" to them but for me EB is the most wide open.

    Thoughts?

Sears won't survive past 2016?

Here is an excerpt from yesterday's article in Crain's Chicago

Fitch Ratings today downgraded Sears Holdings Corp.'s credit rating to CC from CCC, a move driven by the retailer's continuing decline in profitability and the rate at which it's burning through cash. The agency warned that Sears may not have enough funding to support operations beyond 2016.

If Sears goes down, what will happen to Six Corners? I don't love the big ugly building and rarely shop at Sears, but it'll be exponentially worse if the store closes.

  • Lucas Museum Annex!

  • pattymelt is mostly in charge

    We could preserve the Sears as it is and charge money to enter the time capsule.

Hi

Will be interested in how this site compares to Nextdoor Edgebrook. I am hopeful this site remains respectful to all with useful info.

  • Hello HeyJude,

    The two sites seems to attract two different types of people and different areas seem to use one over the other. Everyblock has a 2000 word limit and Nextdoor has no word limit. Use both to reach both markets.

  • Flew That Chicago born & raised. You can come home again!

    NextDoor is probably more considerate of the delicate sensibilities of the genteel.
