Sposato jumping ship

I hope the 38th ward gets what was given to the 36th ward. Not much.
There has been no improvement in the 36th over the past years. We hoped Nick would have stuck to his guns to help clean up the ward. Oh well guess not. It is easier to just go to a ward that has more union residents. Less responsibilities I guess. Good way to get a nice pension.

  • Minerva what unsupervised youth dealing with drugs in our neighborhood are you talking about? I have gone to the meetings and all of the youth that were there were children of members or reside in the dunning community.

  • Lisa36, did your neighbor friend even go and talk to him or was she too upset that she did not get things her way? If it is a major issue for the city, why not call 311?

Too close to home.

Does anyone know what was going on at the corner of school and Pacific at 8:30 AM today, August 2nd? Two squad cars were blocking School. They had a guy cuffed on the ground.

Chess in CPS Schools and Beyond, like Libraries and Parks, Too!

Chess provides a fantastic way to develop critical thinking and plus through strategic play. There is a current movement to bring chess to every CPS school and it would be great to bring on board all of our neighborhood kids soon.

Where is Alderman Nicholas Sposato?

Why isn't Alderman Nicholas Sposato on everyblock for Ward 36? I know Tom for the 38th is (I Used to be in the 38th and we got remapped)

  • The biggest issue was the cut and hack of the 36th, then he jumps to the 38th (which is now MUCH larger). It is clear that favors are being done and once again, we are punished. I just hope the voters in the 38th are smart enough to see what it is and not reward this deceptive behavior.

  • Mike, I am in the 36th and voted for Alderman Sposato. I think he is a fine Alderman and would be thrilled if he is still my Alderman when my address is changed to the 38th. I will vote for him again if he runs.

School Street Now Made of Swiss Cheese!

All we need is some bologna to make a giant sandwich. Seriously there are so many many potholes between Orange and Pontiac that motorists are swerving around them, then they almost hit bicyclists who are also swerving to avoid the potholes. We have reported the potholes to no avail. I am guessing the city is getting ready to redo the whole street because they have been methodically working on all the corner curbs/ramps, one intersection at a time, for a month or so. BUT, in the short term we have some real axle breakers there, terrible safety hazard. Why can't the city fill them in with something, anything? before someone gets hurt!

  • Page is awful between Belmont and school! It's impossible to swerve around them if someone's parked on the street.

  • Land of the Free, Home of the Brave United We Stand Together

    Yo where's my man Cullerton!? School Street between Osage and Pacific is where the big ones are. I guess 311 ate my request because they did nothing. Thanks.
