change in ward 13

Who else think that we need a change from the status quo. sound off here and let your voice be heard.

  • Do you have specifics Carlos or are you just looking for change for change sake?

  • You need change to progress. If there is no change things become stagnant. Plus its time that we take our community back and away from the politician own special interest.

  • So in other words change just for change sake.

Alderman for the 13th ward in the upcoming election

I've worked for the City of Chicago for 15 years, as a watchman, laborer, and the last 5 years as a ward coordinator under the Department of Street and Sanitation.  As a ward coordinator I was on the frontlines and had a chance to work closely with the Ward's Alderman. I had an Opportunity to be at the Alderman's side and assist in the day to day operation of a Chicago City Ward. I've been active in politics for the last 30 years from the grassroots up and am no stranger to Chicago politics.

I'm currently seeking to run for the seat of Alderman of the 13 Ward. I've lived there with my wife Kathy and 4 sons for 13 years. I'm currently a volunteer patient advocate at the University of Illinois Medical Campus. My goals for the 13th ward includes preventing violence in our community, providing vital services, and cleaning up our neighborhood, to bring a real change to the City of Chicago, and by offering my experience to better serve our community.

    Morally corrupt! come on. In 2011, one of the candidates against Quinn didn't file the correct paper work, so he was removed from the ballot by the Election board and the other candidate didn't have enough signatures to get on the ballot. Also, I believe they signed the same petition...

    Morally corrupt! come on. In 2011, one of the candidates against Quinn didn't file the correct paper work, so he was removed from the ballot by the Election board and the other candidate didn't have enough signatures to get on the ballot. Also, I believe they signed the same petition as the Alderman's and perjured oneself. And was removed by the Chicago Board of Elections which is independent of Mike Madigan and anyone you think is conspiring to not have somebody on the ballot.

    Lifelong, I think you need to take a course in politics. Politics 101.

    If you decide to run for office you have to follow the rules. Plain and simple.

    Your pathetic and a cry baby.

Madigan - Quinn Service Office doing great!

The Madigan - Quinn Service Office should be commended for the great work they do for our community!

  • I see the Madigoons attacking residents again.laughable how they are trying to make a rubberstamper look good.

    I'm just looking for facts, not just " they are the best" and he "knows his people".

    I'm just looking for facts, not just " they are the best" and he "knows his people".
    Still don't know what that's supposed to mean. But I'm sure you have more than enough police at 67 & Kolin, there are no illegal rental conversion units there, your taxes are the lowest in the city - it all just couldn't be better. So go ahead and promote your guy.
    Again, if the service office responds to your requests, isn't that what they are supposed to do?
    I think we are both expressing ourselves, don't get offended if I just do not agree with you.

Computer Fraud

I've been receiving calls from 953-267-6390 pretending to be from Windows Operating System. They are very hard to understand but the caller wants me to go to my computer and they will show me what is wrong with me computer. They call constantly and a couple years ago they claimed to be with Microsoft. Has anybody else received this call?

    I don't think you gave out too much information. Giving out information is like opening or locking your front door. If someone wants in. They are going to get in.
    Mostly you lock the door to keep the casual goofs from messing with your world.
    Of course those goofs can do a lot of damage if they use a sledgehammer on your door.....or on your Visa card.

    I would not tell them that I have a 1,500.00 Apple computer instead of a regular 500.00 computer but....they don't care what kind of computer we have....they want our Visa number....then they can buy many computers. Thanks neighbors! Pat B.

Former Aldermanic Candidate for Chicago’s 23rd Ward, Anna Corral, endorses and joins Martin Arteaga’s for 23rd Ward Alderman campaign.

Corral, a health professional and community activists in the south west side of Chicago, had previously launched her campaign for Alderman in the 23rd ward. After several conversations and meetings with the Arteaga Campaign, Corral decided to “join forces” and work together to bring the much needed change in the 23rd ward.
“I found myself asking people to support my campaign or Martins. It was clear Martin had an organized campaign team and support from all over Chicago. Joining forces to work together for the 23rd ward and bring the change we need from the current administration made sense.” Said Corral.

Corral will join the Arteaga campaign as Community Outreach Director. “Having Anna’s endorsement and join our team is an honor. She cares a lot about the people in the 23rd Ward and like my self is a concerned parent and citizen who is tired of seeing the communities of the 23rd Ward being neglected.”

The 23rd Ward includes Midway International Airport and parts of Garfield Ridge, Clearing, Archer Heights and West Elsdon. But in the 2015 election, the ward also will spread south and east to take in parts of West Lawn, Chicago Lawn and other neighborhoods. The reconfigured 23rd Ward will see its Hispanic population jump from about 47 percent to around 67 percent.

  • I agree and thank you for posting. Look forward to meeting you and everyone else someday.

    I am known at the 13th Ward Office, 813-833 Beat Meetings, Archer Heights and West Elsdon Civic Association, and I am acquainted with the 13th Ward Alderman.

    Before you ask, yes I have met with Martin Arteaga in person. I did see him at the National Night Out at West Lawn Park last Tuesday, along with everyone else, mentioned above. I did a quick mingle, because I was a member of the crew volunteering.

    That's what I expect of a politician, to get out there to be seen, known and assist.

    No, I'm not running for office, my marketing and research skills keep me busy enough.

Alderman for the 13th ward.

The people outcries for change in Chicago. But to move forward you must have change.the age of the old machine is dead and career politicians are dinosaurs and set in their ways ,while they are in office this city will not see any change . We all need to be part of the solution to bring the citizens in this great city out to vote on the next election. Show we have voice and we need to make that voice a strong one.
