39th Ward Alderman Debate?

Finally there's competition for the job. Anyone know if there's a debate in the works?

  • Robert Murphy, thank you for the offer to discuss your vision, it is appreciated.

  • Just a suggestion to anyone who may be involved in the planning of the debate. I think it would be helpful to those residents not able to attend the debate if a webcast, video and/or transcript is made available. Thanks for organizing this! Looking forward to it.

Speed Limit Cameras on Foster

How can we volunteer to have Foster Avenue, between Elston and Kimball, set as the first area to test the speed-limit cameras?

This section of Foster is clearly posted as a 30 MPH zone, yet because of the large area of parks and little parking there is a very large amount of speeding down this street. It's a real threat to pedestrians, senior citizens, children, bicyclists, and other using the public streets.

This would be a good place to test the system. Speed limit signs are clearly posted along the route and new signs wouldn't even be needed.

    Ok so we all know about the graft for the well connected and the claims that this all has been "For the children" and the ridiculous light timings that could not be explained Well the facts are in and the cameras do not improve safety. They are all about the money. http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/watchdog/redlight/ct-red-light-camera-safety-met-20141219-story.html#page=1 FIVE HUNDRED MILLION in fines! How many lives has that affected?

  • Bob Kastigar 15 Years North Park, bike rider, retired

    The Tribune and Redlight stories are misleading.

    They note that the number of T-Bone accidents have been reduced (which is good) but then go on to complain that the number of rear-end accidents have increased.

    Rear-end accidents occur because of drivers driving to fast and following to closely, not because of the Red-Light cameras.

    Slow down, keep your distance, and drive safely. Quit looking for someone else to blame.

Candidates for 39th Ward Alderman

I've been studying the 39th Ward candidates for alderman, and while I am still undecided since anything can happen between now and the election, I have been impressed by Robert Murphy. He seems to have a handle on the issues of the Ward and appears very passionate. I am still open to hearing more from Joe Laiacona and Mary Hunter.

If you're interested in knowing - Murphy, Laiacona's and Hunter all have Facebook pages, and Murphy and Laiacona have twitter...

I've been studying the 39th Ward candidates for alderman, and while I am still undecided since anything can happen between now and the election, I have been impressed by Robert Murphy. He seems to have a handle on the issues of the Ward and appears very passionate. I am still open to hearing more from Joe Laiacona and Mary Hunter.

If you're interested in knowing - Murphy, Laiacona's and Hunter all have Facebook pages, and Murphy and Laiacona have twitter too. I tried to find a FB page or twitter for Alderman Laurino but I don't think she has either.

If anyone has any thoughts on any of the candidates, I would like to hear any views. You can also private message me if you like.

  • Susan, OId Irving Anna commented in another thread:

    http://chicago.everyblock.com/politics/dec16-39th-ward-alderman-debate-6565538/

    "Several community associations are discussing co-sponsoring a debate. Effort is being spearheaded by the Hollywood Park--North Park group. Location would be Northside College Prep auditorium. No firm details yet."

    I look forward to attending,

    From reading Kathleen's comment, it confirms that some areas of the 39th Ward receives better treatment than other sections. My area seems to be one of the forgotten areas.

Robbery just happened

I was just told by a friend that there was a robbery on her block on the 4600 block of North Kasson in Mayfair.

A woman came home from shopping and was unloading her packages from her car. While unloading, she left her purse in her unlocked car. Two teens, one white and one black stole the purse from her car and ran. She saw them but could not stop them.

Just wanted to send out a warning to please be careful everyone. Don't leave anything of value unattended for a minute. When unloading, turn off your car, take your purse, lock your car and your trunk.
