36th Ward run off candidate forum

36th WARD, Monday 3/23, Candidate forum for Alderman in Chicago's 36th Ward. The debate was organized by the Bel-Montclare Community Organization. The candidates are Gilbert Villegas and Omar Aquino. The moderator is Alonso Zaragoza.

  • Alonso Born and raised in the Cragin neighborhood.

    In some cases like the 36th (and 29th also), I would just put the money issue aside and base my decision on ideas and answers they've given. In both Wards, both run-off candidates have accepted money and support from politicians and special interest groups so it's not like one is donation is worse than the other. Sometimes it comes down to a simple gut feeling and not actual data.

  • MontBen Nordica est. 2009

    I agree if you're talking about challengers. With incumbents, there is a record to examine for evidence of back scratching. The voters of the 36th definitely have a big job ahead of them and the hardest part starts the day after the council is seated.

Solution to this &#^#&ing TV Bill!

Our cable TV is too expensive for what we use, and it just went up. We need good Internet for work and school, but we only watch a few channels these days. I was researching options. Mostly ATT, Dish TV, Directv and Comcast are in our area. I found a site that finds service with TV channels you watch: www.10channels.com. It found a TV/Internet combo that would saves us $55/month with a switch to Direct.

There's also a good option for ATT. I am going to call the number and make the change. Just wondering if any of you have Directv or ATT Internet? Any advice is helpful!

  • Whenever my rates go up - I'm with Comcast - I call the "discontinue service" line and tell them their rates are way too high for me. Then they review my package and ALWAYS give me a better deal - usually about $20 less than what I was paying before. This strategy should work for most any service provider. Good luck!

    Go away spammer. Mark unneighborly.

  • Gloria B South Austin

    I have ATT internet. Speed is not comparable to Comcast, but it costs less and I can live with that!

Fast Internet and Best TV Provider?

I need your advice. We are paying so much for cable from Comcast and only watch a few channels. I've been looking for something better in our area. My brother told us about www.10channels.com where you choose channels you watch, then it finds matching packages in your area. Is Comcast the best provider for Internet? I am either going to lower my tv package or switch to DIRECTV and keep Comcast Internet. Thoughts & Recommendations?

  • gpblight 15 Yr East Garfield Resident

    For,those who don't know...smart Tvs may eliminate the need for cable. The Tv itself hooksup the owner to a myriad of Free contemt including apps, new chanels like Huffington Post and other non channel broadcasts. cable will be dead when consumers can get the content they want from FREE Smart tvs.

  • Interesting, thank you.
