...decided it'll reach more people who are entirely FED UP with this character's

'contributing' to this site, when the only thing he contributes is his diatribes, put-
downs, juvenile name-calling, etc. (don't believe me?-- have time to waste-- click on any of his names aliases (you will see below in part of one of his past posts) and you
can read through (quickly!) all his sordid commentary.

Now, you can join me in MUTING him-- and all his Frankenstonian creations here:
(and you can MUTE and ALL his names by clicking on each and every one-- they will take you to each tagname page, you just scroll down, and you will see at the very bottom, a button to click to 'mute' him-- and having to see any further comments he posts under these various tagnames.

At the VERY LEAST you will not have to deal with this 'off--balanced' individual who
believes he is SO sharp (when he is nothing more than a little 'Cyber Bully'.

So, without further adieu-- you are invited to join me in removing this guy off this site
(and if he will not be removed by Everyblock by citing of his bully-game, he CAN and
WILL be MUTED-- by me). I NEVER want to read his ignorant comments again.

The following quote IS indeed, an excerpt of one of his past postings on Everyblock.

"My name is Alexander Oscar Campillo Capio aka Gigo. ...I create false accounts like David Divine, Garfield Ridge Nurse, Ty Webb, Maryfromtheblock,Pandora's Rack,abc_773... I just change the names or create new ones since they get deleted. I am also trying to make Goral look bad because I want people to vote for Zalewski."

  • Chucks still here--

    I get it that they're "two different" sign-ups on this site (as their public profiles here indicate-- which anyone can click on by clicking onto the tagname). That STILL does not mean the same person could not sign up under various tagnames (even IF

    Chucks still here--

    I get it that they're "two different" sign-ups on this site (as their public profiles here indicate-- which anyone can click on by clicking onto the tagname). That STILL does not mean the same person could not sign up under various tagnames (even IF
    they also invented some of those tagnames or actually 'appropriated them/stole them' from others on this site, by claiming so in their comment (at bottom).

    And, EVEN IF they ARE 2 validly different people, anyone with some insight can detect that they speak with 'one voice' (& a harsh, derogatory, non-contributive,
    trouble-making one at that)!

    Don't believe me, go and read through all their posts & especially attacks on others (usually bullying put-downs of anyone who dares disagree or challenges them). THAT in itself is the definition of a 'Cyber Bully'. and is not only AGAINST EVERYBLOCK's stated policy in running this community blog, it
    is a hijacking and a destruction of valid community input and interchange among people.

    That is why it is at this stage, a MOOT POINT whether they are the same
    or different. The original fellow who posted this, used BOTH those tagnames (so, he
    either invented them, stole them or IS them under false pretense).

    Any which way, the commentary posted through the election cycle was EXTREMELY negative (and much if not most of it was perpetrated by this person & these tagnames as reprinted here):

    The following quote IS indeed, an excerpt of one of his past postings on Everyblock.

    Isn't it interesting Chuck, that BOTH those tagnames you refer to that I recently muted, are staunch Zalewski supporters too. You must be aware of that....

My Everyblock topic is the same headline used on Sunday,

Mark Brown. Here is the link (once again posted, for others) to read that full article:

http://chicago.suntimes.com/news/7/71/384388/southwest-side-alderman-resorts-race-baiting

I realize at least one commentator here already posted it, but it is important enough
to bear repeating; & remind constituents of the 23rd Ward that the incumbent
alderman is SO utterly corrupt, that has to be singled out in a major newspaper, for his lies, treachery,bashing of fellow aldermanic candidates and inciting racism to boot-!

It is clear, Z-- is beyond the point of redemption and he and his pathetic politics has got to leave this ward.

He deludingly must consider that-- repeating his corrupt tactics (similar
to his behavior in the prior election cycle four years ago) served him (and him alone) in the past, so, these vicious tactics bear repeating (and also, dreaming up even new ways to attack and bring down his opponents; even if it means falsely defaming them or attacking their very livelihood)!

My gad already, when are we going to wake up in this Ward?! This man should have been ousted long ago (and I said so then; he should have been removed when the corrupt Daley mayoral legacy ended-- who he was a lock-step lackey for, even as he is now is the same, for the Rahm-bomb game).

It is obvious, his lack of attendance at several ward candidate programs was a spit-in your-face, 23rd ward. As long as he can hold on to his 'tiny fiefdom', he doesn't give
a whit (even if he had any wits, except for corrupt politicking) about you or me, or any respect for his challengers names or reputations. as his cartoonish, buffoonery passing as mailers has shown.

Why he even stooped to inciting racism as 'a campaign slogan'! How pathetic can a politician be? Well, the irony is we already KNOW...

  • abc_773 ABC is easy as 773

    It's hilarious that you're citing a comment as a fact to invalidate what I have to say. A comment is an opinion and certainly not a credible source.

You should be ashamed...

Once, sometimes twice a week me and my family visit my in-laws. During these visits we take them to the grocery store to get stuff. Today was no exception. I parked no longer than 10 minutes to get them, only to find someone spit all over my car door, and rubbed it under my door handle!
I did not take anyone's spot, and there was enough parking for at least 5 cars. No I did not p.o. any one, as I only know a couple of neighbors, and they know why we are there.
My in-laws live on 50th and Keeler, and have been there 10 years now, this has never happened before!!!!

EARLY VOTING: Convenience...or just more time to 'disappear' votes?

Since this 'concept' of early voting was first implement, I have had a leery feeling about it.
Even though I did early vote a couple of times, still, I always wonder IF my vote will be counted (that is, if ANY vote gets counted these days-- metaphorically-speaking) ;~}

Yes, early voting 'appears' to stream-line the process of voting (e.g. preventing long lines, etc.) and, as I recall, there was a BIG campaign to convince the public of that.

Yes, early voting 'appears' to stream-line the process of voting (e.g. preventing long lines, etc.) and, as I recall, there was a BIG campaign to convince the public of that.

Nevertheless, this was instituted at the same time there was also bedlam taking place, over the break-down of voting machines on voting day, the suspicions that machines (manufactured by private contracting companies) were pre-tampered with, etc. Soooo... it is not a difficult thing to consider that this 'early voting' option might also have been invented to 'tamper' with voting results. These are my thoughts
on the topic...

In the interest of taking an informal poll, what are your thoughts on the matter?

Here's an excerpt to whet your whistle--
"Garcia — who’s now one of four challengers seeking to unseat Mayor Rahm Emanuel in the Feb. 24 city election — supported Mayer Brown despite a personal connection to the firm involving his adult son Samuel Garcia. Court records show Samuel Garcia had been arrested in 2007 on a felony charge, accused of attacking two off-duty police officers on the South Side — and lawyers from the downtown law firm represented him in the criminal case for free."

Or daley II, that took a job with the lawfirm he hired to represent us in the parking meter deal. we all no what a great mayor he was.

Setting the Record Straight on Arteaga

Martin Arteaga will not address several issues:

Does he live in his parent's attic in order to run for Alderman of the 23rd Ward? All while having his real residency with the Mother of his child in 2117 Broadway St Blue Island. He also has his old drivers licence registered there.

You can find more information about him here: http://www.dirtsearch.org/cgi-bin/toolbar.cgi?fname=Martin&lname=Arteaga&statename=Illinois for free.

You can find more information about him here: http://www.dirtsearch.org/cgi-bin/toolbar.cgi?fname=Martin&lname=Arteaga&statename=Illinois for free.

You can also view his criminal record with multiple arrest from 2007 to 2012. Charges are Domestic Abuse, but was dropped to a misdemeanor in a plea bargain. His ex-wife was on a date after breaking up with Arteaga. Arteaga then approached her date and beat him pretty bad. He also has a second conviction that was dropped to probation for being in a violent altercation.

For the record I use to be affiliated with the Arteaga Campaign. Not at the management level, but would go help out often. I live near his parent's house where until recently never heard of Martin Arteaga. His Sister suggested I help out to help add to my resume. I decided to stop going in because both my kids would come with me at times & one of them found drug paraphernalia while helping clean Mr. Arteaga's car. His office also reeked of Alcohol and Cigarettes. On top of catching Arteaga's staff posting on here several vicious attacks.

I was reluctant to post anything on here since the attacks are vicious, racist, and bigoted. However, the voters and citizens of the 23rd Ward deserve better. Here I was thinking I was electing a young, vibrant, latino to be our next Alderman. Sad to find out the hard way you can't trust a book by it's cover.

Fake profile people we are not interested in your cowardly post. We do want to hear from Team Arteaga on his criminal violent activity & his residency.

There is a picture attached with Mr. Arteaga's vehicle of his home in Blue Island. Anyone know what agency he should be reported too?

  • Sally S. neighbor

    HDO is very much alive and it's very much UNO

  • We need to know the truth pretty in pink! Does he or does he not live in the 23rd ward! I came on this site just to follow what's going on and I believe every candidate deservs a fair shot but Mr. A did not get my vote and never would!

    @ Jackie Moon. DUDE!!! If you don' like the thread, move on! We're talking about city services here that were not rendered. Even tho trucks/plows were here they did not put the plow blades on the ground. What's up with that?? And as far as it being 20 inches, it doesn't matter. The trucks were here!!!!! They did not do their jobs! You must be a Rahm supporter cuz only he and his supporters would try to cause problems on a thread where everyone is being nice, no fights and just voicing their opinions. For some streets here we need the 40 degree temps just to get rid of the piles of snow & ice STILL on the streets that the city did nothing about!

Street plowing

Does it seem like over the last few years the city has severely cut back on salting the streets? Seems to me they have a great deal. Even the expressways!! Also it seems when they do plow, They don't scrape down to the street as well. Daley at least did a better job of it!

  • Rahm sucks, sorry, I said it, I can't help it, that's how I feel . . .

  • Daley made sure the streets were plowed and alleys. Rahm could care less.
