    She may b a special Ed teacher who is active in community issues.

    Go to jjfor28.'com her site.

    Look around and see the scourge of blight in28

    All who do not rally to get new representation deserve to live in the deplorable conditions we suffer under,

    Do your best to help us break the scourge in 28 over the past 24 years.

    Nobody can deny stats.

    The best tools are early voting where one can register And Vote on the same day. Go to the bBoard of elections site for requirements and ID. Going to a polling place outside of the ward is a Good idea to escape the spies and any potential intimidation and retaliation.

    Rumors abound about rough intimidation by thugs and how scarey it is. Others talk a out someone showing up at their door asking them to recant their signature to get on the ballot. Those are also fearful.

why west side of Chicago not historical?

I been in Chicago for over 40yrs and I currently live in West Garfield neighborhoods and IM appaul that Obama didn't pick other neighborhoods for historical District. What about K Town, North Lawndale,Austin. We are suspose to come together not stay divided and with Pullman being name makes me wonder do anybody see all crimes in all neighborhoods or do we have our blinders on. President Obama should never have to pick due to his previous address he should put libraries in Chicago westeside,Washington,&Hawaii. We should at least get library in North Lawndle since Pullman beat us out as historical. When we gone fix Chicago instead of remodelling it..ijs smh.

28th Ward: Why We Need A New Alderman

This is first in a series of posts
advocating the removal of Jason Ervin as 28th Ward Alderman.
Point 1: Appointed Not Elected
Ervin was forced upon the 28th Ward by its former undistinguished Alderman Ed Smith. The ward declined dramatically under his tenure. Blight, unemployment and extraordinary levels of violence was the norm.
The ward has had little input into its political leadership. Daley appointment of Ervin has increased its decline, while communities adjacent to the ward...Wicker Park, Austin, Little Village, and Near West, has sustained economic ,community and commercial growth.
Next Point.. Ervin and Public Unsafety

28th Ward Write In Alderman Candidate

What are we going to do?
Allow the worst Alderman in the city to
win by default?
Can we force him into a run off?
Are we going to support write off candidates?
Are we going to allow Ed Smith and the political machine to exploit the senior vote?
Do we toss in the towel?
Do I need to finally list my property and get out of the 28th ward?
Please advise...

  • Did Ervin even receive ANY endorsements?
    Who are we going to write in, and when are the write in candidates going to get serious about campaigning?
