Alderman Michael Zalewski's intimidation begins

Source: Anna Goral - Facebook

The same day I have placed my political sign on the lawn next to my building it was taken down and I got ticketed by Chicago Department of Streets and Sanitation.
(photo 1 and 2)

I just wonder if Alderman Zalewski got his ticket since his signs have been on city property (57th & Central) since last Monday, and they are still there today.
(photo 2 and 4)

The office of Chicago Department of Street and Sanitations is only 2 blocks away from where Zalewski’s signs are, so they must have seen them…

  • If anyone in the right mind actually looked at the photos.... It is not a ticket. So anna please stop telling people it is. It clearly says on there that it's a notice and it explains why u got a notice. So quit spreading rumors

  • Marty Arteaga Convict, Carpet Beggar, Major UNO Supporter

    Anyone know where I could get a gram of kush? Then we can head over to my HQ and spark up so you all can stop crying like little babies.

Chicago mayoral candidate and progressive Ald. Bob Fioretti (2nd) is putting a spotlight on the controversial, mayor-backed $55 million tax increment financing (TIF) project for a new Marriott hotel near McCormick Place.

Aldermanic candidates and members of the Bridgeport Alliance, Pilsen Alliance, Prairie District Neighborhood Watch and Reclaim Chicago joined Fioretti and fellow progressive Ald. Scott Waguespack (32nd) for a Wednesday morning press conference near the corner of Cermak Road and Prairie Avenue to "denounce the $55 million in TIF money given to Marriott Corporation for a hotel and complex near McCormick Place," according to a release....

    If two- count 'em, 2-- Starbucks (and we all know how expensive their drinks and other store items are-- items that we don't REALLY need to survive- coffee addicts not included here) that will exist only several blocks apart can make it in this area, why not one Whole Foods (that sells food--and lots of more nutritious, organic food, that we all need to survive-- that would 'do a body good"...and a family too)? And what about catching those health-minded Midway tourists to buy their 'health-food' at a
    nearby W.F.'s.?

  • Chet 606 Rogers Park, NOHavana, CE

    There are plenty of people in and out of AH that would appreciate quality food. Plus the traffic to/from Midway and commuters who drive to AH to jump on the Orange Line. Not everyone needs or is expected to shop at WF, but for those that want to, bring it on!

TAMALE LADY

there has been a lady selling tamales on 47th and keating, is there a way to stop this?
do we really want 47th to become 26th st?

    And before you cry for help, those "poor mom and pop" stores are doing just fine. There's nothing that says you can't have both. And as...

    Look: let's not start with that bullcrap about liberal and conservative cause it's old and played out and serves no one in the community!
    And before you cry for help, those "poor mom and pop" stores are doing just fine. There's nothing that says you can't have both. And as for the person selling food outside using the alley and not washing his hands .....wake up! That happens in "brick and mortar" places too!
    You really care about brick and mortar stores? Then help your community get rid of the criminal element first... THEN the competition.

    Christian, Consider investing in what one wants first 'the light' , THEN addressing what one doesn't want 'the Dark'. Concentrating on the dark or the 'criminal element' throws the energy and focus on the criminal element draining our energy and creating a void. The light needs to be there and ready to fill this void otherwise other criminal elements do. Build what one wants then watch these dark elements fade away.

    Sarcasm is also a tool for the dark. Funny in stand up or youtube where one could see facial expressions and tone of voice, but on blogs, EB, email, sarcasm unconsciously tears people down. This is often used by politicians as over time it leads to hopelessness. Then they came in with a solution, or promises of a solution, or a part of a solution and bingo, they get the votes and the problems continue.

    Most effective community activism happens with positive desires are expressed and fought for.

    I suspect the original poster vanny79 is one of the last hold-outs of the traditional SW-side efforts to keep things from changing as I pick up a racial tone in his 26th st comment.

    Let me know where one could pick up some organic tamales on the SW-side & I'll share a meal with you and pick up the tab.

    Focus on the light.

Traffic control 47th Uno

School (Uno) on 47th they need traffic management authority not private security company stopping or directing traffic .

    I agree.

    Ricardo, I suggested this before. Build a bicycle path along the Sanitary & Ship Canal between Harlem and Halsted and watch a significant of traffic along 47th decrease as commuters take the bicycle path instead. It happens with the lake front path and the path in Skokie.

    Also, much of the traffic on 47th I suspect is people avoiding the train grade crossing on Archer & Knox (but I like prefer grade crossings over a massive dump of concrete like on North Ave in the West suburbs) AND traffic trying to get up and over the Stevenson I55 Expressway. It would be ideal, yes a wide span, to have several overpasses from From Forest View, Stickney, Cicero, to 47th without any ramps to/from the Stevenson - like along the Eisenhower Expy in Berwyn. Yes outside the 12th, but it would significantly positively impact the quality of life along the SW-side including your ward.

tamale lady

how do you stop a lady from selling tamales on the street?

  • I called the aldermans office , then they said they would call the 8th district police station, I was actually thinking about calling the station myself

  • Archer Heights Guy Long time resident.

    Both the prostitutes and cart vendors are illegal and people should be calling 911, not 311.
