it's a shame...

When I joined everyblock I was hoping that this would be another way to get information and stay connected to the neighborhood and whats going on thru honest and caring neighbors...

What this has turned out to be for the past few months is nothing but a forum for folks to down each and every person running for alderman...this forum has turned into a joke thanks to folks making up fake accounts, accusing candidates of everything under the sun, etc....

When I joined everyblock I was hoping that this would be another way to get information and stay connected to the neighborhood and whats going on thru honest and caring neighbors...

What this has turned out to be for the past few months is nothing but a forum for folks to down each and every person running for alderman...this forum has turned into a joke thanks to folks making up fake accounts, accusing candidates of everything under the sun, etc.

Thanks to all the honest people on here who try to bring information about the neighborhood to all of us so we can be informed citizens looking out for the best interest of our neighborhood. ..and to the rest...stop littering our forum with garbage,filth and ridiculousness about this upcoming election...this last go round that was posted half of the comments were deleted by everyblock...it just goes to show there is not an intelligent conversation going on when half of what was said can't be seen...stop it already! Take your garbage elsewhere!

Before anyone even thinks of posting some ridiculous hurtful comments let me say this..I'm not endorsing anyone for alderman..my account is real..and I have lived here for over 25 years...I'm a TRUE neighbor to Garfield ridge..this is my home....

  • Well I'm glad I'm not the only one who feels all this has gotten out of hand....the bad thing is these folks r getting kicked off every block and jump on again under a different name/avatar...

  • We on EVERYBLOCK make it what it is. If you don't want to talk negative then don't. If you have positive news or comments then write them. You're complaining like the ones your complaining about. Do you have something positive to add to Everyblock? I do and have. We can...

    We on EVERYBLOCK make it what it is. If you don't want to talk negative then don't. If you have positive news or comments then write them. You're complaining like the ones your complaining about. Do you have something positive to add to Everyblock? I do and have. We can talk about the best can opener or the best grocery store or how a mean neighbor said hi. Figure out something good to talk about and skip the complaining, just don't read what you don't want to read. How does that sound. That's what I recommend. This is a free place to express yourself whether good or bad it's still a good place to discuss incognito. Don't complain to take it away, please.

Setting the Record Straight on Arteaga

Martin Arteaga will not address several issues:

Does he live in his parent's attic in order to run for Alderman of the 23rd Ward? All while having his real residency with the Mother of his child in 2117 Broadway St Blue Island. He also has his old drivers licence registered there.

You can find more information about him here: http://www.dirtsearch.org/cgi-bin/toolbar.cgi?fname=Martin&lname=Arteaga&statename=Illinois for free.

You can also view his criminal record with multiple arrest from 2007 to 2012. Charges are Domestic Abuse,...

You can find more information about him here: http://www.dirtsearch.org/cgi-bin/toolbar.cgi?fname=Martin&lname=Arteaga&statename=Illinois for free.

You can also view his criminal record with multiple arrest from 2007 to 2012. Charges are Domestic Abuse, but was dropped to a misdemeanor in a plea bargain. His ex-wife was on a date after breaking up with Arteaga. Arteaga then approached her date and beat him pretty bad. He also has a second conviction that was dropped to probation for being in a violent altercation.

For the record I use to be affiliated with the Arteaga Campaign. Not at the management level, but would go help out often. I live near his parent's house where until recently never heard of Martin Arteaga. His Sister suggested I help out to help add to my resume. I decided to stop going in because both my kids would come with me at times & one of them found drug paraphernalia while helping clean Mr. Arteaga's car. His office also reeked of Alcohol and Cigarettes. On top of catching Arteaga's staff posting on here several vicious attacks.

I was reluctant to post anything on here since the attacks are vicious, racist, and bigoted. However, the voters and citizens of the 23rd Ward deserve better. Here I was thinking I was electing a young, vibrant, latino to be our next Alderman. Sad to find out the hard way you can't trust a book by it's cover.

Fake profile people we are not interested in your cowardly post. We do want to hear from Team Arteaga on his criminal violent activity & his residency.

There is a picture attached with Mr. Arteaga's vehicle of his home in Blue Island. Anyone know what agency he should be reported too?

  • Sally S. neighbor

    HDO is very much alive and it's very much UNO

  • We need to know the truth pretty in pink! Does he or does he not live in the 23rd ward! I came on this site just to follow what's going on and I believe every candidate deservs a fair shot but Mr. A did not get my vote and never would!

Plows Not Plowing

Plows are driving down side streets with plows up, a couple inches above the snow pack. They are dropping salt, but why no plowing? There was a Streets and San pickup truck trailing the plow.

  • me

    @ Jackie Moon. DUDE!!! If you don' like the thread, move on! We're talking about city services here that were not rendered. Even tho trucks/plows were here they did not put the plow blades on the ground. What's up with that?? And as far as it being 20 inches, it...

    @ Jackie Moon. DUDE!!! If you don' like the thread, move on! We're talking about city services here that were not rendered. Even tho trucks/plows were here they did not put the plow blades on the ground. What's up with that?? And as far as it being 20 inches, it doesn't matter. The trucks were here!!!!! They did not do their jobs! You must be a Rahm supporter cuz only he and his supporters would try to cause problems on a thread where everyone is being nice, no fights and just voicing their opinions. For some streets here we need the 40 degree temps just to get rid of the piles of snow & ice STILL on the streets that the city did nothing about!

  • @me..you took the words right out of my mouth. THANK YOU 👍

things Ald. Z does

look at all of the curb work being done, look at all the sewer work, look at the street repaving, the 23rd ward has the FASTEST graffiti removal of any ward, even with only 2 tree trimming trucks the trees are getting trimmed when scheduled, the length of time it takes it the cities fault, the garbage is picked up on schedule, the only way to get businesses is with tif funds, but if those are used the same people...

  • Chuck I know you're a real person from GR and as much as you dislike Arteaga you don't talk as much sheet as some of these fake profiles. No one can come up with that much and be that annoying which leads me to believe that's his ex-CM. I make fun of Paulino's weight that's about it. I take care of my body so it disgusts me how people let themselves go.

  • Oscar Gigo Campillo aka Alex Capio

    Chuck we need a big strong man around us tomorrow just in case anyone tries anything. Can we count on you? We don't bite unless you want us to
