Fioretti Rolls Out TIF Platform, Blasts Marriott Hotel TIF Project

Chicago mayoral candidate and progressive Ald. Bob Fioretti (2nd) is putting a spotlight on the controversial, mayor-backed $55 million tax increment financing (TIF) project for a new Marriott hotel near McCormick Place.

Aldermanic candidates and members of the Bridgeport Alliance, Pilsen Alliance, Prairie District Neighborhood Watch and Reclaim Chicago joined Fioretti and fellow progressive Ald. Scott Waguespack (32nd) for a Wednesday morning press conference near the corner of Cermak Road and Prairie Avenue to "denounce the $55 million in TIF money given to Marriott Corporation for a hotel and complex near McCormick Place," according to a release....

Alderman Michael Zalewski's intimidation begins

Source: Anna Goral - Facebook

The same day I have placed my political sign on the lawn next to my building it was taken down and I got ticketed by Chicago Department of Streets and Sanitation.
(photo 1 and 2)

I just wonder if Alderman Zalewski got his ticket since his signs have been on city property (57th & Central) since last Monday, and they are still there today.
(photo 2 and 4)

The office of Chicago Department of Street and Sanitations is only 2 blocks away from where Zalewski’s signs are, so they must have seen them…

  • Arteaga,worker says,it Debbie kelly,---worker from uno.Anyone hear also?

  • If anyone in the right mind actually looked at the photos.... It is not a ticket. So anna please stop telling people it is. It clearly says on there that it's a notice and it explains why u got a notice. So quit spreading rumors

47 th & Keeler

Hello, the traffic in the morning is crazy. Crossing 47th street down Keeler is merely impossible. There is a sign that clearly reads " do not block intersection", but nobody seems to care. Is takes me 15 minutes to cross 47th street because nobody wants to let me through. Mind you, I don't like to be an aggressive driver. I think having stop signs on the intersection of 47th and Keeler can help, or at least traffic patrol. Who can I suggest this to? Thank you.

  • This is a constant issue that the city will not look into people are reporting issues daily and the do not look into it.

  • Mary on the block mommy mode

    That is horrible. I feel hopeless, but I will not stop!

    If two- count 'em, 2-- Starbucks (and we all know how expensive their drinks and other store items are-- items that we don't REALLY need to survive- coffee addicts not included here) that will exist only several blocks apart can make it in this area, why not one Whole Foods (that sells food--and lots of more nutritious, organic food, that we all need to survive-- that would 'do a body good"...and a family too)? And what about catching those health-minded Midway tourists to buy their 'health-food' at a
    nearby W.F.'s.?

  • Chet 606 Rogers Park, NOHavana, CE

    There are plenty of people in and out of AH that would appreciate quality food. Plus the traffic to/from Midway and commuters who drive to AH to jump on the Orange Line. Not everyone needs or is expected to shop at WF, but for those that want to, bring it on!

TAMALE LADY

there has been a lady selling tamales on 47th and keating, is there a way to stop this?

    And before you cry for help, those "poor mom and pop" stores are doing just fine. There's nothing that says you can't have both. And as for the person selling food outside using the alley and not washing his hands .....wake up! That happens in "brick and mortar" places too!
    You really care about brick and mortar stores? Then help your community get rid of the criminal element first... THEN the competition.

    Christian, Consider investing in what one wants first 'the light' , THEN addressing what one doesn't want 'the Dark'. Concentrating on the dark or the 'criminal element' throws the energy and focus on the criminal element draining our energy and creating a void. The light needs to be there and ready to fill this void otherwise other criminal elements do. Build what one wants then watch these dark elements fade away.

    Sarcasm is also a tool for the dark. Funny in stand up or youtube where one could see facial expressions and tone of voice, but on blogs, EB, email, sarcasm unconsciously tears people down. This is often used by politicians as over time it leads to hopelessness. Then they came in with a solution, or promises of a solution, or a part of a solution and bingo, they get the votes and the problems continue.

    Most effective community activism happens with positive desires are expressed and fought for.

    I suspect the original poster vanny79 is one of the last hold-outs of the traditional SW-side efforts to keep things from changing as I pick up a racial tone in his 26th st comment.

    Let me know where one could pick up some organic tamales on the SW-side & I'll share a meal with you and pick up the tab.

    Focus on the light.

  • Best thing would probably be to contact the school administration or attend a board meeting if they have them, and bring up the issue. Or, let the Alderman know.

  • Mary on the block mommy mode

    Thank you all. I will definitely be addressing this to the alderman and school administration.

    Also, much of the traffic on 47th I suspect is people avoiding the train grade crossing on Archer & Knox (but I like prefer grade crossings over a massive dump of concrete like on North Ave in the West suburbs) AND traffic trying to get up and over the Stevenson I55 Expressway. It would be ideal, yes a wide span, to have several overpasses from From Forest View, Stickney, Cicero, to 47th without any ramps to/from the Stevenson - like along the Eisenhower Expy in Berwyn. Yes outside the 12th, but it would significantly positively impact the quality of life along the SW-side including your ward.

I can't say I was depressed, but I was seriously disappointed, and disheartened, not only to learn Rauner ($40 million-and-counting-a-year, Rauner) won the IL governorship, but that the DEM party was turned topsy-turvy on its head, and that the REPS virtually 'hijacked' our government as a democratic republic!

Definitely, I was suspicious of Rauner's win being rammed through so fast (I truly am not a fan of either party, but prefer Dems any day, to what Reps offer, esp. THIS MAN who is going to be our state nightmare-- starting with his promise to push through that Keystone Pipeline, along with all his Rep cronies now in office.

But, how to wade through all the information and disinformation, all the months of campaigning, etc. to trace where it all took this disastrous turn? Well, fortunately, another person has looked into it, and here, I post a link to an article a friend sent me just yesterday, I couldn't have researched and stated things better by this fellow, so here is a link to his full article (and well worth reading):
