  • Ok, I'll start....

    "Attracting a high quality, affordable supermarket that provides fresh produce. The 26th Ward is a food desert and the lack of a supermarket is detrimental to the health and well being of the residents."

    He receives a "F " for Economic Development.

    He receives an "A" for attracting a 4000 congregation Mega Church.

  • Ok, I can keep going....

    "Maintaining and improving delivery of city services. Although graffiti removal, garbage pick up, street light repair, potholes, etc. are not "glamorous issues" they are vital to the quality of life of the residents of the ward."

    He receives a "F" for delivering city services.

    This summer it took more than 8 weeks to replace our broken garbage can. After calling his office several times we were told that the City of Chicago was out of garbage cans. REALLY???

New Democratic Party

The new democratic party's primary objective this election season is to assist me and other potential candidates win elections in 2015. Now I'm planning an event next week to outline what the Chicago New Democratic party is, our benefits for participating in it, and the roles we can play in it.

The NDP is strongly pro-government, upbeat about the country's ability to solve problems and an individual's ability to get ahead through hard work, approve of regulation and environmental protection,...

The new democratic party's primary objective this election season is to assist me and other potential candidates win elections in 2015. Now I'm planning an event next week to outline what the Chicago New Democratic party is, our benefits for participating in it, and the roles we can play in it.

The NDP is strongly pro-government, upbeat about the country's ability to solve problems and an individual's ability to get ahead through hard work, approve of regulation and environmental protection, more positive about business than other Democratic-oriented groups, and generally liberal on racial issues

I have lots of information about my campaign, but it does not reflect the role of the Chicago New Democratic party, I opted on having two to three events exclusively about the Chicago New Democratic party next week (so you can view this as advertising).

Because the party hasn't officially started yet and I don't even know if I'll be one of its' officers... I stayed away from writing anything about the future political entity
