    1 point I think seperates the 2 and that is prior community involvement. O'connor started the Turkey Trot and was active in the Chamber of Commerce. People can say "oh no big deal" but that Turkey Trot is fantastic event and has raised 1,0000's for charity. This year they gave over $70K to Chrons and Colitis Org. She is clearly a community member and active and has proven that fact. That is a +1 in my book.

    So I look at Napoliano and I don't see the same prior involvement.

    In regards to the last 4 years in office I preferred Doherty but I think she deserves another 4 out of the 2 to see what she can do. 4 years is not alot of time on the job.

    I truly still believe its a popularity contest and their power is limited.

  • "41st ward, 15th precinct, no judges showed up to open the polls on time? That is a shame."

Was our mail in cold storage?

Today (February 24) I received a greeting card posted first class on Feb. 2 and several other important pieces of mail posted at the beginning of the month. My question is, who's in charge over there on Northwest Highway and how can they lose mail for three weeks? I guess I should consider myself lucky though as I did receive the multitude of mayoral and aldermanic election materials.

    We have the same problem over and over. Charge bills that never come, news
    magazines that are out of date, no mail for three days in a row and then a huge pile.
    ANd our mail generally comes between 6 and 7PM if at all.....

  • We have the same problem with mail in Norwood Park. Some days we get no mail at all. Magazines and other mail comes late.

Alderman O'Connor

Now that the aldermanic election is 2 days away, It is hard to believe that the anti Alderman O'Connor dialogue that was so prevalent a few months ago on Every Block has literally dwindled to nothing when ideally it should be building to a fever pitch heading into Tuesday's election. In her four years in office, our surly, do nothing alderman has been nothing but a go along puppet for Mayor Emanuel. Her office staff has been non-responsive and argumentative...

Now that the aldermanic election is 2 days away, It is hard to believe that the anti Alderman O'Connor dialogue that was so prevalent a few months ago on Every Block has literally dwindled to nothing when ideally it should be building to a fever pitch heading into Tuesday's election. In her four years in office, our surly, do nothing alderman has been nothing but a go along puppet for Mayor Emanuel. Her office staff has been non-responsive and argumentative when requesting their assistance. She has no accomplishments to show for her $100,000+ part time job performance as alderman, and she she has been ineffectual in the airport noise debate. Days before the election then, it is not surprising to find crammed in our mailboxes, 5 -10 glossy photographed filled fliers of her promoting her do nothing self. Some even paid for no doubt by Emanuel, her puppet master. You can tell how utterly clueless and out of touch of our representative she has been by the fact that she includes photographs of herself with Emanuel in her mailings. Like that is going to draw her more votes!? Obviously, I would like to see either of the other viable candidates, Lomanto or Napolitano win the election. But you really have to wonder how realistic that will be with the proliferation of O'Connor yard signs and like I have said the absence of any current anti O'Connor dialogue.
