Veterans salute aldermanic candidate Richard Wooten

A group of veterans attended a Friday fundraiser at Montford Point for sixth ward aldermanic candidate Richard Wooten, who is an Army veteran himself.

The Chicago police officer and associate pastor said he plans to have several more fundraisers until the Feb. 24 city election.

    Officer Wooten well-represented the CPD and 6th district as a CAPS representative. He always was well-informed, inclusive, respectful of neighbors attending the meeting, and very helpful. Officer Wooten and the Tactical Officers appeared to take residents concerns seriously. They seemed to produce the best results in following up on neighbors concerns. Yes, they were doing their jobs, however, they seemed to have that "lagniappe" spirit of going the extra mile, or at least of doing a thorough, complete job.

    On another note, CAPS could have been a great program had it been fully-funded with provisions made for police officers to attend. Who knows whether a real CAPS program--meaning full staffing, funding and participation--could have led to less violence, and fewer shootings and murders.

Should CPS teachers be allowed to work a second jonb as a Chicago cop?

Veteran Chicago police officer Richard Wooten has mixed views on a recent report by the inspector general for Chicago Public Schools. In the annual report the inspector general found that two teachers were also working as police officers. As a result, CPS is now considering whether to prohibit teachers, assistant principals and principals from working as police officers.

Recently a developer proposed building a hotel on vacant land at 76th and State Street despite opposition from local residents and community groups.
