SW-side Continues to Bury Head in Sand as Gov Quinn Gives $50,000,000 for Trails

As a former resident of Archer Heights and a former board member of the Archer Heights Civic Association, .... I told you so!

http://www.dot.il.gov/press/1%2030%2013%20ITEP%20-%20RELEASE.pdf

When will the leaders of the Sw-side wake up? When will the people of the SW-side (Archer Heights, Garfield Ridge, Clearing) wake up?

As a former resident of Archer Heights and a former board member of the Archer Heights Civic Association, .... I told you so!

http://www.dot.il.gov/press/1%2030%2013%20ITEP%20-%20RELEASE.pdf

When will the leaders of the Sw-side wake up? When will the people of the SW-side (Archer Heights, Garfield Ridge, Clearing) wake up? There was a reason why I championed for a bicycle and nature path for many years. There was a reason why I repeatedly sought to meet with Ald.Burke, Ald. Zalewski, Cong. Lipinski. There was a reason why I repeatedly tried to get the 'leaders' of the AHCA to support a bicycle path. If only for the reason to give energetic youth someplace to blow off steam rather than by breaking into garages and other 'crime'. But then the local papers wouldn't have much to write about.

Everyone knows (or they find out the hard way after years of trying) that to get anything done in Archer Heights one needs to have the 'leaders' figuratively present the idea on a platter of promissory votes to who ever is the alderman at the time (pick one from the above). The more pomposity the better. Yes?

One prostitute, two prostitute, three prostitute, four. Apparently there isn't enough time between counting prostitutes on 47th & Cicero or trying to get a 'senior discount' from the local politicians to champion any other cause.

The SW-side, Archer Heights specifically is the land where politicians go to retire before they retire. It's a community where one with just a HS education is comfortable. Check out the last census. Wasn't Gov Quinn a guest at the AHCA meeting earlier this year?

A bicycle path people. It's easy. Have the conversation, interest and preliminary design on the shelf ready to go for moments like this!

    I am the new supervisor at Strohacker Park. Like many people already said, I personally can not fix that park in one day. I did submit many work request to Chicago Park District. Also requested for big capital budget improvements for 2015/2016. There are over 250 parks in the city and work order requests are submitted daily. Little patience here. This park is not a $500 fix. Little things can slowly be done but other things need budget approvals. So far we are getting new playgrounds in Fall of this year and I think that's a big step in the right direction. This park stayed unstaffed due to economy crisis few years back and budget cuts. Many business shut downed, many people lost their jobs, including park employees, and many lost their homes. I am still young but I do understand that when economy is bad, then there is not much that we can do. Economy is slowly picking up, Chicago Park District secured some funds and they are doing everything in their power to fix over 250 parks in the city of Chicago. Give me a chance as a supervisor to fix it up. Chicago Park District is aware of the situation. To my knowledge, I am the NEW supervisor and I am the ONLY one with Chicago Park District that will do something about it. If ANYONE has any issues or concerns about this park, please see me. I grew up as a kid at the parks, my parents worked 10-14 hrs shifts so park was my 2nd home. I learned sooo much from park staff at the time and with the love of the park patrons and the staff I made my decision as young kid that this is what I want to do in life. I want my 2nd home to be also 2nd home to many kids in the neighborhood. I worked soooo hard to where I am today. I started with the parks as volunteer since age 13 and started working once I turned 16. Park is my life. 15 years later I am here fighting strong. I don't have to say much more. Chicago Park District is not only my job, it's my passion and most important it is my life, my one and only life.

  • You will do great things because your passion drives your spirit. I will not say good luck cause I don't believe in luck. Its all about working hard for what you believe in. I will be in there soon to lend a hand if you allow it. Take care.
