Homeless Center on Southside of Chicago

Hello everyone. My name is DeLancy. I would like to know everyone thoughts on having a Homeless Center on Southside of Chicago? I would like the community input on this issue.

  • DeLancy Madkins Agape's goal is to open a homeless shelter.

    Mr. Ramsey, I truly like to thank you for your response , but I respectfully disagree . Yes I agree about the drug users and alcoholics, but some of these people feel as that is that last resort . Not everyone wants help, we know that . That will be...

    Mr. Ramsey, I truly like to thank you for your response , but I respectfully disagree . Yes I agree about the drug users and alcoholics, but some of these people feel as that is that last resort . Not everyone wants help, we know that . That will be the reason why we will do extensive background. Our organization is seeking the ones who wants help, not the ones looking to abuse the system . I understand your concern sir, but let's be honest here, not everyone is in the same boat . I asked that you give us a chance . Someone who wants to initiate a CHANGE. Please visit our website at agapehrc.org. I look forward to hearing from you.

    I agree with Mr. Ramsey.....our property values are low enough already...do not need something like this to further depress the value of our investments.....sorry NIMBY.

Auburn Park

Hello, I'm a reporter for the South Side Weekly, a news magazine that covers arts, culture, and politics on the South Side. I'm currently writing a story about the history of Auburn Park and I'm wondering if anyone has any stories, memories, or experiences about the park. If you spent time there as a child or still swear by it, please get in touch with me before 2/1!

  • Would you consider interest in an upcoming blue ribbon initiative similar to that of Mount Greenwood-Chicago, but here in our area to write about?

  • Irene Casey single dog lady

    I grew up in Auburn Park. It was a great friendly neighborhood.
    Moved to Mt. Greenwood in 1965.

Now that the catholic church has admonished Pfleger, Glenda is saying that she works for her failed non-profit, What About The Children (W.A.T.C.H.) who was kicked out of the S.O.S. Children’s Village for failing to provide the proper services required by the grant. Can you say CORRUPTION! Glenda was using the money to pay herself, her cousins and brothers to provide educational and mentoring services to our youth, but no one had the appropriate training to provide the services that were required by the grant. When the families and village officials began inquiring and asking Glenda to produce the documents, she immediately got the W.A.T.C.H “outta” there.

The question I was told to ask: who is paying Glenda’s salary while she is running? My fly on the wall couldn’t truly say but they think it’s either the individual businesses or combination of Rahm’s cronies, Larry Huggins, Everett Rand, Elzie Higgenbottom and Leon Finney.

Stay Focused! Wait until I share what I am hearing about what the Glenda camp, and Rahms Super-Pac is about to unleash on David Moore. It will be hurtful, but it won’t stop the 17th ward residents from electing one of their very own. It’s mostly lies and half truths tangled together to mislead the voters, and use fear tactics targeting women and seniors not to vote for David. Many worse people with personal problems have been elected and have not served the community in the manner in which David has served.

    One poster talks about scandals on one hand, but supports a candidate that is crazy and morally depraved, while at the same time not providing any evidence that the current alderman has done anything corrupt and is anything other than an upstanding family person and educated far beyond what the current candidates have to offer.
    The post that is sock-puppeted by David/Jazmine ("Janelle"), is ridiculous . David must be off of his medication.

What is going on in the 17Th Ward Race?

It is great to have friends in high places. I get to be that fly on the wall that have I always wanted to be.

Word has it that Rahm Emanuel admires David Moore and has great respect for how he has single handedly toppled the 17th Ward Leadership. This includes neutralizing the Great White Hope, Father Pfleger who has been privately admonished by the Archdiocese of Chicago for getting directly involved in the 17th ward race, while using their resources and grant money to help finance Glenda Franklin’s campaign office among other countless things.

Miss Glenda, who is directly tied to the failures of the Alderman’s office, has had to change courses about the work that she does. When Glenda abruptly left that Alderman’s office last spring to begin her run for office, Father Pfleger gave her a high paying job at the taxpayer funded resource center so that she could continue to have an income while campaigning on the centers time instead of doing any work. We used to call that Ghost Pay-rolling back in the day.

    Ghost payrolling ? Isn't that what you are doing on the payroll of Larry Rogers while campaigning ?

    Upon further reading of this disjointed, rambling, psychotic drivel, it sounds more like something David has written himself, hiding behind the name of a made up woman. Or it could be the trampy Jazmine Mc. C - who was also fired, like David, and now has an axe to grind.

    One can tell from the ignorant catch phrases used throughout the post, and the others, that David will say when he thinks he is among friends (because his org HAS been infiltrated). Words like "back in the day", "stool-pigeion", "great white hope", and other key words that unmask him trying to write and cover his tracks.

    Very transparent "Lil' Bit" - and still have a problem with women it seems.Except the loose woman who allows you to sleep over from time to time over on West 80th street by the train tracks.
    Or the chumps at the Chicago Crusader rag that print whatever you or Del Marie sends them.

    Once the REAL David Moore is exposed, he will go back into hiding in his home, which is not in the ward, by the way, and people will have to bring food to house like what was done during his many bouts of mental instability "back in the day".

The Glenda and Rahm team will use his misfortunes to say that he cannot be fiscally responsible in turning our community around. That is some B.S. David has gone through some things that many of us in our community are going through and he is still standing.

That’s the type of person I want to see as my leader, not some weak puppet who has not overcome any challenges on his or her own. I personally know, that after Glenda left the responsibility of raising her children after a failed marriage, and came back to Chicago only to use the relationship of her mother who worked in the 17Th Ward Democratic Organization to get a secretarial Job at CHA; before being moved to work in Latasha Thomas’s office to keep Terry Peterson abreast of what was going on in the office because he felt Latasha was a poor alderman, as Glenda was taking prescription Prozac on a daily basis. Nevertheless, what does these personal shortcomings that we all have has to do with anything. I personally know a lot more about Glenda Franklin and if they continue to personally attack David Moore, I will be more than happy to share them. All I can say is, that some of the Pastors in the ward better talk to their girl and her camp because I will name names.

  • So Davids mother was a tramp, he had no father, he has illegitimate children and nieces/npephews, as well as being illegitimate himself. A family with no morality. Yes, that is exactly what the ward needs.

Sounds like we have a true leader in our midst and he is from us. I am even more excited about supporting him.

Therefore, Rahm and the Glenda Franklin camp will hide behind the Super-Pac that will go by different made up names similar to: Women Against Domestic Violence, and a few others targeted specifically at David Moore.

Look for 8 mailers to start hitting the 17th Ward houses within the next two weeks demonizing and tearing down David Moore and not focusing on the issues. The plan is to start putting them out close to early voting so that David Moore and his team will not have a chance to respond and disprove the lies while people are early voting.

I am hearing the following:

1. They will bring up the old false domestic violence allegations leveraged against David Moore trying to make him out of a batterer and woman beater. This didn’t work last time and it won’t work this time. Not only was David a victim of false arrest, but he has never been convicted of a crime, and all of the false charges were dismissed. It is just another strategy of negative white men, tearing down our productive black men who can change and positively influence other black men in our community. As a black woman, I stand and support David Moore completely.

2. They are going to lie and try and say that David Moore was fired from the Chicago Housing Authority. My source tells me that David was fired because of politics because David would not kiss butt to keep his job. However, I am hearing that the lie that the Glenda and Rahm camp is going to tell will be quite different.

  • Jeff Janulis CAPS Rep

    Rahm is laughing at David....and the fools like Larry Rogers, an ambulance chasing shakman crook that gave david a job out of pity...and Clay Evans, whose niece works for the Alderman.
    David is crazy and will say and do anything, including lie and post under assumed names, in order to try to win. No one is willing to come out front and endorse him because they know he is a certified mental case.

Again, isn’t that what they said about David with Bathsheba who God called a man after his on heart. Isn’t that what CIA said and reported about Dr, King in their attempt to destroy him, and the list goes on.

David's life experiences make him the best candidate. One who does not judge but understands the pain of his community. David has been testsed and for that, he has a testimony. You can't tell me what it's like to be hungry if you have never been hungry, or what it's like not being able to pay your bills if you are always getting preferential treatment.

I am sure that there will be some more false allegations intertwined with half truths, but I want more for my community so I am sticking with Moore and I won’t settle for less. If you support David Moore, stand with him and defend his honor and character as the new King Herod, Rahm Emanuel try to destroy one of our own who will and can save and turnaround our community. I’m punching 52 on election day. Will You?

Glenda was using the money to pay herself, her cousins and brothers to provide educational and mentoring services to our youth, but no one had the appropriate training to provide the services that were required by the grant.
