Liar Liar Pants on Fire

Alderman Zalewski was a NO SHOW at yesterday's forum with a lame excuse that he had kidney stones. Yet was seen this morning somewhere downtown and attended a CPD campaign today around 3pm.

What kind of Alderman blows of his constituents? He's a lying cheat that doesn't care enough about us to show his face. But that's not all he did the same thing last election at a forum held at the Salvation Army Gym, (47th & Lawler) Saturday, January 22, 2011, 10-12 p.m. His NO SHOW excuse the was also kidney stones.
Michael "COWARD" Zalewski needs to go!

  • I didn't go to the forum, but I did watch the video. Did u notice that his representative stated he was sick for the night or something along those lines. It caught my attention, because he did make a public appearance the next morning... Smh
    I'm still undecided, but I'm really disappointed that he wasn't there. I would have liked to hear his POV... Perhaps he didn't bother, cuz he thinks he's gonna win??

  • I heard he did the same thing four years ago. Same tactics, just a different election. It's not that he is confident by any means, I believe that he is running scared and he know he should not take the podium so close to the election. It's a good political...

    I heard he did the same thing four years ago. Same tactics, just a different election. It's not that he is confident by any means, I believe that he is running scared and he know he should not take the podium so close to the election. It's a good political strategy, but it plays terrible with the voters. He was everywhere the next day for endorsements. He Has time only when is convenient for him to do so. I think he has fooled people for long enough and it's time for new ideas and a new direction. A more sensible approach that encompasses our community as a whole. The biggest thing for me thus far has been finding out that he takes $$ from 4 hour motels. That truly is disgusting.

BREAKING 23rd ward endorsement news

Karen Lewis and the Chicago teachers union have endorsed Alderman Zalewksi for re election! There goes another union off the board in the Zalewski column. Sorry martin, I didn't mean to be the bearer of bad news but this needed to be posted. I know you are such a big fan and advocate for uno and charter schools. Did you actually think the CTU would endorse you?? That makes practically all the unions endorsing alderman ZALEWSKI! I think he must be doing something right! While you are out making up stories, the alderman is out in the ward getting things done. What do u have? A made up democracy for America endorsement?

Without permission again!

Please for the sake of my clean neighborhood. Martin quit putting your trash up and around the area. You are not asking for permission at all. People do not want your signs on their property. Have some class and ask the residents or business owners if they would like your sign. Don't just assume. Not sure how it's done in blue island or Pilsen but over here we have respect and we take care of our property. We don't like it to be cluttered with trash. Especially if we didn't put it there.

    Thank you, I have been here for 2 days. I asked a simple goral and arteaga question and I was jumped on for no reason. Is this the way they plan on treating the residents if they plan on winning. Wow oh wow. I am done on this page. I have never been so appalled in my life. Disgusting! See ya's def don't want to be ya!

Garfield Ridge makes Redfin top five hottest Chicago neighborhoods list

Good news for Garfield Ridge. Influential real estate website Redfin has announced their top five hottest neighborhoods in the Chicago area for 2015 - and Garfield Ridge makes the list. I don't know what criteria they used, I just happened to see it on the NBC5 website. For the record, the listing is as follows: 1) Andersonville, 2) Garfield Ridge, 3) Brighton Park, 4) Lakeshore Historic District in Evanston, and 5) Ishnala in Palos Heights.

Arteaga Rumor Mill

I understand that there is some mudslinging going around, after all it is Chicago Politics. Don’t believe the “he said-she said” rumors. (BTW, I think the caricature of me is hilarious: )

Let me set the record straight:

1. I have ZERO convictions on my record. Check the record if you would like. Chicago Election Code states that a convicted felon cannot be elected for Alderman.

I understand that there is some mudslinging going around, after all it is Chicago Politics. Don’t believe the “he said-she said” rumors. (BTW, I think the caricature of me is hilarious: )

Let me set the record straight:

1. I have ZERO convictions on my record. Check the record if you would like. Chicago Election Code states that a convicted felon cannot be elected for Alderman.
2. I have lived in the Southwest side for 23 years. If I didn’t live in the ward, I wouldn’t be on the ballot. It’s as simple as that.
3. Please note that a lot of these rumors are being purported by a person that was fired by my campaign because they were caught stealing $. His dishonesty got him fired. He is a chronic liar and a thief. He said he would go work for Zalewski, so I’m assuming that’s why he’s trying to blast me and Anna Goral.

The following people are the same person: Soxfever51, David Devine, Marty Arteaga, NE Mommy, Joan of Chi, Utalkin2me, Hammertime, JeremyChicago, abc123, Leslie Nope, Lynnchex, Aaron Cheselske.

Please note that I will not be going back and forth on any of these posts or giving them the time of day. If you would like to talk to me in person, I invite you to come by my headquarters at 5215 S. Archer Ave. You can find out more about our campaign at www.arteaga23.com or www.facebook.com/move23forward .

There will be a Garfield Ridge Civic League Candidates night where you can feel free to ask any questions on January 21st at St. Jane de Chantal Church. I look forward to seeing everyone there. Thank you and God bless.

Martin Arteaga

  • The main reason I'm voting for Arteaga is because he's not Zalewski. If it was the Easter Bunny against Zalewski I still wouldn't vote for Zalewski. He's just been collecting that nice paycheck and doing the bare minimum. Don't come on here with your fake profile accusing everyone of working for a campaign.

  • You shouldn't just vote for someone because it's the lesser of two evils. Arteaga is very well prepared. Goral is not far behind. She is a successful business owner and has a good education.

I have been reading up on all of the candidates. Some are good and yes some are bad. I am really concerned on what was said at the public forum earlier in the week. I was told that there was some racist remarks made to the crowd. I wanted some clarification as to what happened and if she really feels that way. Her not calling me back or at least having someone reach out to me tells me it's most likely true. I heard martin arteaga came to the event with a "scripted response" and really didn't tell anyone anything useful. Few weeks left to the election and it Looks to me like my choice for alderman is getting easier by the day.

I understand there are die hard Zalewski supporters and that's alright as long as the other candidates supporters are also respected. Not all Zalewski supporters are bad, the majority of them are miss informed and the rest are just stubborn. I truly hope We move in the right direction and the incumbent is not the driver.

Well guess what? the owner of the building that has it up for sale still has it's cameras fully functional and low and behold it shows to males with hoodies on walking up and taking the signs down and running away to a near by vehicle. The plate, make, and model of the get a way vehicle all have been recorded. Police report has been made. I think it's safe to say they know who you are! Funny thing about this incident is few weeks back the owner stated that a MARTIN ARTEAGA SIGN was placed there without permission. The owner who is selling the place noticed it and took it down. He requested the huge Z signs because he supports the current alderman and just like that, the camera has 2 degenerates stealing them. So I ask you MARTIN, Are u a sore loser? Afraid? Thief? Worried? This is the second incident of this in as many days it's happening out west also. It's a shame if in fact this was you and or your so called campaign. the video tells no lies my friend.

Hello Everyone,
Let me begin by saying that, I am no longer a candidate for Alderman of the 23rd Ward due to Martin Arteaga's Challenging my petitions. Well I can honestly say he was better off leaving me on the ballot as when I was a candidate my target was the incumbent alderman, Well my focus has changed and I will definitely be placing all of my concentration on the candidacy of Martin Arteaga and exposing him for who and what he is. HEY MARTIN REMEMBER OUR CONVERSATION, THAT YOU WANTED TO USE THE ALDERMANIC SEAT AS A STEPPING STONE TO RUN AGAINST MARTIN SANDOVAL, OR TO POSSIBLY RUN AGAINST SPEAKER MADIGAN.

Also anybody who thinks that I have another username here on this system, you are wrong. I have nothing to hide, if you have something to say or ask me just ask me directly.

Now back to Martin, tsk tsk, lying already to the people of the 23rd wd. Well my friend from Pilsen, I will be discussing your campaign on a daily basis here on line and to any group of voters that will listen. Remember Buddy, you wanted to be in the public eye, so now deal with all of the truths that are going to come out.

and for those of you who think that I am just being a sore person about being knocked off the ballot, you are wrong, I am MAD because I really wanted to help all of the Children of the Whole 23rd Ward not just the East side or the West Side, but all of the 23rd Ward, and Martin Arteaga decided to question the voters of the 23rd ward, by challenging their signatures, because they printed their names, or because the "i" wasn't dotted or the "t" wasn't crossed & now Martin has the Audacity to ask for their vote and send a messenger to ask for my endorsement, Definitely not going to happen buddy.

I have my Business in the 23rd Wd, My Home in the 23rd Ward, and My Family in the 23rd Ward, Yes Martin "FAMILY", I UNLIKE YOU, I AM MARRIED & MY WIFE & DAUGHTER LIVE WITH ME IN THE 23RD WD.

First of all Let me tell you I don't want any of my kids or grand kids anywhere near a pervert especially at the library. Wow! what a moron you are! This is as bad as arteaga not answering his possible domestic battery arrests. Secondly, I read a couple of your responses to the suntimes, and tribune questions (when u actually were a candidate) and let me ask you, did you graduate grammar school? It almost looked like a 1st grader answered the questions! Did you really think people were gonna vote for you? Oh how is that 10grand goral loaned you to fight off the challenge!!! LOL

I have on been on here a week..

All this negativity is why people don't like politics. Good people probably don't run because of this kind of senseless bashing. It's absurd for some people to think one candidate will win because he is of a certain race. I do believe there should be a representive government, but they should be qualified. All I see on here is negativity, many seemingly fake profiles, and spite. I am happy with my Alderman, but I don't I live in the 23 ward. Please don't make everyone on Everyblock suffer through these never ending posts. Let's talk about pizza, dog parks, or local events.

Zalewski Putting Sings Against Owner Wishes

Today Michael Zalewski's people came to my house and asked if they could put a sign up on my lawn. I respectfully informed him that I was still looking into the candidates and that I didnt feel comfortable saying yes at this time. A few minutes later to my surprise I had a Zalewski sign in front of my lawn. This was very upsetting to me and founded it very disrespectful that they did not respect my decision. To further...

Today Michael Zalewski's people came to my house and asked if they could put a sign up on my lawn. I respectfully informed him that I was still looking into the candidates and that I didnt feel comfortable saying yes at this time. A few minutes later to my surprise I had a Zalewski sign in front of my lawn. This was very upsetting to me and founded it very disrespectful that they did not respect my decision. To further add to the distress, I also found two signs on my next door neighbors home. This was surprising to me since my neighbor is on vacation in Europe and I am house sitting for them. This act of deception is not what I expect from my alderman. Thoughts?

Who to vote for Mayor?

My bad taste in politics did open my eyes on the importance of voting and how it can effect my childrens future & safety in the home we provide for them. This will be the first city election I plan to vote in. I am guilty of only voting for President and always vote democrat (& sometimes only because the name sounds hispanic or female ;/).This time I am doing my homework and reading up on all the issues and...

My bad taste in politics did open my eyes on the importance of voting and how it can effect my childrens future & safety in the home we provide for them. This will be the first city election I plan to vote in. I am guilty of only voting for President and always vote democrat (& sometimes only because the name sounds hispanic or female ;/).This time I am doing my homework and reading up on all the issues and even look into the judges lol.

The one I have a hard time with is who to vote for Mayor? The current Mayor is doing a fair job, but people all around are struggling because of his actions like closing 50 schools & being so pompous. Alderman Fioretti I know very little, but I agree with him on many issues. I did hear that he is a cancer survivor and always admire that. Commisioner Chuy Garcia I really never heard of until recently. My first thought is to vote for him because he is Hispanic. Then I actually met him and I must say he just did not do it for me. I do like that Karen Lewis supports him. To be honest the rest I don't feel have a chance and I do want my vote to count.

Any good feedback that can get an undecided voter on which way to vote?

    I don't have the faintest idea who my precinct captain even is! I haven't seen one in years but i did find out that some precinct captains gave out hams here in the 14th Ward at Christmas! At least "Rudy" is taking care of his area.

  • Thank you everyone. Think it's between Bob or Chuy... What is the difference?

Did Martin Arteaga Not Think We Would Find Out??

Martin arteaga WHO IS THIS GUY??
I am reposting this from the 23rd ward everyblock page because this needs to be seen here. In my opinion This individual needs to be exposed before people go to the polls and possibly vote for someone that has numerous skeletons in his closet. If this is true, shame on you Mr. arteaga. Explain yourself!

  • If you started a rumor that Arteaga was arrested for impersonation I might believe that, but the more vehement these accusations are the less I believe them.

  • David Divine everybody jump jump

    Brian you don't know your boss' number? Or is Arteaga in cook county again???
