Progressives, parents react to Karen Lewis decision not to run for mayor

WBEZ interviewed people regarding their thoughts on Karen Lewis' decision not to enter the Mayoral race.

Here's the link.https://soundcloud.com/wbez/progressives-parents-react-to-karen-lewis-decision-not-to-run-for-mayor#c=0&t=0:00

My comments come in at about 3:15.

  • Amara who?

  • robin in WRP misanthrope

    Valerie - that was not my intention! I have a tremendous amount of respect for Karen Lewis; I heard her speak last year in Evanston and was blown away! I am saddened by her illness, and sending lots of positive, healing energy her way. That said, I never took her seriously as a candidate for mayor

    Antonio - Amara Enyia is running for mayor. I believe that she is the best candidate for mayor since Harold Washington

This council has a great deal of power under Senate Bill 51. The problem is companies almost never show up. They have to have something to advocate for. This is the council that decides rather companies receive waivers for BEP participation. There are many other issues that they deal with. My only suggestion is that when you go to the council have your company in position to do business. Make sure you are in good standing with the state. It is always helpful that you are certified with CMS as a BEP company.

Presidential Library

North Lawndale is its own unique entity; a community full of the good and too much of the bad. Out of that community, desperate for social relevance, a committee was formed; formed to regain that relevance and more. It was our bid, your bid, the bid born, developed and presented by our community that formed a partnership with a major university.

North Lawndale is its own unique entity; a community full of the good and too much of the bad. Out of that community, desperate for social relevance, a committee was formed; formed to regain that relevance and more. It was our bid, your bid, the bid born, developed and presented by our community that formed a partnership with a major university. This is something that is crucial to realize; our community, your community, my community, rose up and dared play with the, “Big Boys” and here we stand. Out of 13 contenders, from New York to Hawaii, here we stand in the Final Four. That is something for all of us, young and old, to be proud of; one of the few times on the national stage in a positive way since Dr. King and here we stand; a real contender. New York, Hawaii, the University of Chicago and City Hall are all looking at North Lawndale right now. What do we do with this unprecedented attention? Walk with Pride, North Lawndale
Here’s a little background on the status of your bid. http://www.gazettechicago.com/index/2014/10/uic-is-finalist-for-obama-presidential-library/

  • SIR SEL OF NORTH LAWNDALE AND BEYOND I'm a community filth and fear fighter

    That's what I'm talking about, Paul. The anointed spirit says, "Well, we didn't get the library, but we can still build something, and something else and something else.

    You are absolutely right about my passion and purpose to engage, initiate, promote and sustain a comprehensive clean up campaign designed to start from the inside out.

    Please invite me to your next meeting.

  • As North Lawndale moves forward with its Library bid, in partnership with UIC, there will be several joint community outreach events. I will do my best to make notifications.
    But we don't have to wait for formal events. We have earned the right to use the great and powerful tool of the Library. Let's use it.
    EVERYBODY, energize your circle of friends and supporters; get them excited about the Library and what it can do for your cause.
    In the mean time, visit and promote our Facebook page.
