Ward Map Changes

How will the remapping of the wards affect the next election? The 28th ward seems to have grown quite a bit reaching close to UIC now, and encompassing the business area on Taylor. Will the population have changed much? Does this present challenges or opportunities for those running? What do you think?

  • I live in the Tri Taylor area and find it hard to believe none of the professionals in the area has any interest in running for 28th ward alderman.
    Professors, teachers, policy makers, public health and government officials live and or work here. ..and no one is running against Ervin.

Alderman Ervin :Bloody Streets of the 28th Ward

Ervin has failed again. The past week was a bloodbath in which 20 shootings happened in and around the 28th ward.
Ervin's father was a police commander. You would think the ward would get better police protection.
I talked to some officers that work in nearby police stations. Some white cops won't do police work because they believe Ervin is a racist that will get them fired.

A few black officers believe Ervin will attack them as Uncle Toms. One also said Ervin supports gang drug sales.

Whether this is all true or not, the violence bloodshed and drug activity is all saying one thing
ERVIN HAS TO GO !!!

  • gpblight 15 Yr East Garfield Resident

    The ward is composed of majority who are welfare types. How can we get the welfare types to oust their patron?

    It doesn't occur to them that kids killing kids, schools where no education occur, streets too dangerous to walk, disgusting filth and growth throughout the ward...has anything to do with their elected leadership.

    How can someone wake them up so that THEY will have better futures for them and their children?

    Any ideas?

Looking for Ms. Ernestine King of The Garfield Park Chamber of Commerce.

The community badly needs the services provided by the Chamber, it was evident in a meeting today. Ms. King please reconsider reopening the Chamber or if you are no longer interested, would you kindly mentor someone?

Thank you,
