look at all of the curb work being done, look at all the sewer work, look at the street repaving, the 23rd ward has the FASTEST graffiti removal of any ward, even with only 2 tree trimming trucks the trees are getting trimmed when scheduled, the length of time it takes it the cities fault, the garbage is picked up on schedule, the only way to get businesses is with tif funds, but if those are used the same people that complain about lack of business are the same ones that complain that tif funds were used, there are no schools that have been shut down in the ward and over crowding is minimal, the lack of police is the mayor both present and pasts fault, Kennedy HS is no longer a school that has major student bused in it is mostly students inside a border, it also has a IB program which is more advanced than honors and I am proud to say my daughter, nephew and cousin are all enrolled in and my daughter is getting all A's and I attribute that to the education she received at Byrne, there is a blue ribbon campaign to show support for the police Zalewski was out tying ribbons to trees and light posts and also paid for most of them including for people in the 13th ward until Quinn started supplying them also, were Arteaga or Goral out there doing this? how many ribbons did they tie up???? and while I am at it, how many ribbons did you put up Chuck Hughes?? the new east end of the ward is getting those services that they were not getting before and the residents know this, and Arteaga is taking credit for these services getting done, drive through the east end and find graffiti, if its there call the ward office and see how quick it is removed, find it in another ward call that office and see it takes days to get it removed, street light outages are taken care of quickly also, I dare all of the fake Arteaga posters to point out where I am wrong on any of these, can not be done, these are issues not personal attacks, prove me wrong

  • Chuck I know you're a real person from GR and as much as you dislike Arteaga you don't talk as much sheet as some of these fake profiles. No one can come up with that much and be that annoying which leads me to believe that's his ex-CM. I make fun of Paulino's weight that's about it. I take care of my body so it disgusts me how people let themselves go.

  • Ryan Rhodes Lovin' My Gigo

    Chuck we need a big strong man around us tomorrow just in case anyone tries anything. Can we count on you? We don't bite unless you want us to

This is is taken verbatim from a yesterday post on the Archer Heights Civic Associaton Face Book Page.

As was announced at the AHCA meeting this past Wednesday - 47th Street is to be closed from Pulaski Rd., east to Archer Ave. for installation of new sewers. From Alderman Burke’s office we now have the details.

The Department of Water Management will be installing new sewers on S. Harding Avenue from 47th Street north to 46th Street, and on west 46th Street from Harding to Hamlin Avenues . This new sewer will serve the area of Archer Heights from (N) 45th Street, (S) 47th Street, (E) Hamlin Ave. and (W) Pulaski Rd and is designed to improve drainage and reduce risk of flooding in that section of our community.

This project will start on Monday, February 2nd and run through February 6th (weather permitting) and 47th Street will be closed from Harding for three to four days to connect the existing sewer. Traffic will be detoured along 47th Street - Pulaski Rd. and Archer Ave. Everyone will always be able to reach their home or business. Outside of working hours (7:00 AM – 4:00 PM), a lane will be left open for LOCAL TRAFFIC ONLY. Thru traffic will not be allowed at any time and NO PARKING will be posted during work hours.

Please remember the schedule is subject to weather conditions and may take longer. For any questions please call Alderman Edward Burke’s Ward office – 773-471-1414.

Also announced at the Wednesday AHCA meeting was the closing of the 47th & Kedzie intersection also for sewer installation. We do not have any details on that project at this time.

  • What THE HECK DOES A MEXICAN RESTAURANT ON Pulaski Have TO Do WITH A STREET CLOSURE??

  • Debbie W. Live in Archer Heights....Love my neighborhood

    I know it has nothing to do with the strret closure but i was in shock. I'm sorry if i offended you.

    I'd like to see a good authentic Cuban/PR or Tapas Restaurant out this way. We always have to go downtown or the northside. Just no more Mexican restaurants. There's just too many.

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 also view his criminal record with multiple arrest from 2007 to 2012. Charges are Domestic Abuse,...

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 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?

    Enough is enough already! I can't believe you went as far as posting a picture of someone's home. I only met Martin at the pumpkin patch but I went to high school with one of his cousins. Their family is very humble and are hard workers. I called her regarding all these posts and she assured me they all come from his ex campaign manager. Which makes sense because all the negative comments come from soxfever51, david devine, Mary from the block or barrio and fake Martins and now Garfield Ridge Nurse. Then they're all thanked by the same people. This is what happens when Rahm closes down all the mental health clinics. Get a life and get some help!

23rd Ward Issues and Candidates

I was reading the platform of Martin Arteaga. Is there anything original there? Seems like Martin just took the research and material from other candidates and rewrote it.

Change? Your using president Obama's slogan? Really....?

Martin, you are only debating what Anna uncovered last election, where is your own material?

  • Only thing Martin Arteaga has done is hire an attorney to knock out the second Hispanic candidate, Paul Vallarreal, because he is relying on statistics that state the ward is 67% Hispanic. Those statistics only go by last name, which in many cases aren't even accurate. On the second note, he doesn't realize that only 15/20% of those numbers actually vote.

  • Fat Martin Corn Carts Rock!

    I also moved some of my stuff from Blue Island to my parents attic so I can for Alderman
