Ald Joe Moreno, crook or dummy?

sound off here and be sure to vote Joe out on Feb 24

  • Joe Kopera Logan Square resident since 1961 (54 years in Jan)

    Nothing like going to the debate and having one of the alderman's thugs come up to you, shake you hand and then he tells you "THERE WILL BE REPERCUSSIONS" just because you are wearing a sticker for one of the challengers. I don't take kindly to threats.

  • Moreno lost my vote forever when he spoke out against the teachers strike. He seems like a shady guy all around. I do like his ideas for a dedicated bike lane on Milwaukee, but that's not enough to sway me, not to shake the feeling that he's smarmy. I hope both of them are forced into a runoff and lose.

Jay

Almost midnight and some dude keeps yelling "jay" outside near grand and may, but I cannot see him! Is he locked out? Is he drunk? He is now honking. This is awesome.

Custom cushion for window seat - vendor recommendations?

Hi, neighbors,

I am looking for a business that makes custom window seat cushions. Would also possibly have them make new covers for my outdoor cushions in the spring. Does anyone have any recommendations?

Thanks!

  • Bell Upholstery on Sedgwick (around 1400 N) does a nice job and is very reasonable. I had a bench reupholstered., need pad and support, etc. Get specifics on hours because he closes for lunch.

  • Thanks, Kathy!

Not cool, Moreno

Is it normal for campaign volunteers to canvass door-to-door at 8pm? We were putting our 6 month old to bed and got our buzzer rung...twice! My husband ran outside and gave them the what-for. The goons seemed less than contrite.

  • 1st Ward Alderman Proco Joe Moreno

    Hi Alya,
    Sorry for the disturbance. It is common for campaign volunteers to canvass at times when it seems likely that residents will be home from work. I'll speak to our volunteers personally to address this specific complaint.
    Thank you for the feedback.

  • All our volunteers have been asked to not canvas past 7pm. I, too, am a mom and in general, feel residents are settled for the evening by that time. Have also reminded all volunteers that NO literature is to go into mail boxes. Have seen some literature (not ours) slid in the boxes. Working towards Feb 24 -- unless we have a run off, residents should not be bothered after that date! Don't forget -- 1st Ward Debate Jan 29, 7pm at Wells High School.

  • I, too had an incident about a week ago-I believe they were campaigning for Jan Schawosky. I probably spelled that incorrectly. Anyway, they laid on my buzzer like the building was on fire and woke me up. (I had the flu.) I just said "no thank you" and they went away. I should have gone downstairs and explained to them why this behavior was unacceptable. Can't believe they think this is ok.

How Taxes/TIFs in the 27th Ward have been spent

I went to this last time, and it was very surprising how our taxes/TIFs in the 27th Ward have been spent. They are having another free/public meeting. This time the meeting is in the Near North with plenty of free parking. I highly recommend attending.

Saturday, January 24, 11:00am - 1:00pm
Marcello’s ~ Father and Son Restaurant
645 West North Avenue

Here is the URL for more information:

The meeting is being hosted by Gabe Beukinga, candidate for 27th Ward Alderman, and Tom Tresser of the CivicLab TIF Illumination Project.
