Zalewski Crook

Me take lesson Chuck Hughes! Chuck Hughes Tardo Lika Me! Chuch Highrs Win! Zalewski crook!?!

  • Stand4truth Property owner

    Yep...Lynnchex..there's certainly more! That's why I've been saying, "do your homework on all the candidates!" Both incumbent and wannabes. Public records are a beautiful thing, you just need to look.

  • HammerTime Sup with it

    Zalewski needs to go! A fact is he went Bankrupt because he gambles. A fact I want to know is if a "wannabe" or challenger (if we are speaking facts)Paulino Villareal got fired from Sheriffs Department? What do you think Chuck Hughes?

Response to SW Post on Zalewski Flyer

Joan,

In response to http://www.swchicagopost.com/2014/09/help-wanted-alderman-with-brains.html?m=1

You grow a back bone and show the flyer instead of your opinions and do what any good reporter would do and tell all the facts.

Zalewski is using tax money to feed his pockets.

You seem to stay idol when it comes to Zalewski.

Report on his bankruptcy, gambling addiction, and what a crappy Alderman he is.

You are not here to be pious, but to report all news,

For all those that have not seen the flyer it's attached.

It's Official, SW-Side No Longer Part of Chicago

Had someone, anyone, wandered over to the communities of Garfield Ridge, Clearing, Sleepy Hollow, Elsden, Archer Heights and even Brighton Park, this wouldn't have happened.

http://www.usatoday.com/story/money/business/2014/09/03/50-best-us-biking-cities/15017309/

Mr. Arteaga
Ms. Goral
Mr. Hughes
Mr. Zalewski
Archer Heights Civic Association
Garfield Ridge Civic League

Any comments?

Campaign literature focuses on crime, grade-school age activities, seniors and veterans. What about a little focus on those who ride and want to ride a bicycle either to/from or through the SW-side?

  • Hi Chet 606,

    I work for Martin Arteaga's campaign.

    Just ran into this post and would like to meet with you when you have time to discuss either in person or over the phone.

    My email is info@arteaga23.com.

DISASTER HOTLINE for the 23rdWard!

When a disaster strikes, people look for help and expect to get it from their elected officials. These past several months, we have faced cruel weather conditions where heavy rains and gusty winds left many residents with flooded basements, downed trees, damaged roofs, downed power lines and broken gas mains. Many of these conditions could be life threatening. People lost electricity, needed additional trash pick-ups, required prompt assistance to have sewers opened up, etc. It is unfortunate, that in 19...

When a disaster strikes, people look for help and expect to get it from their elected officials. These past several months, we have faced cruel weather conditions where heavy rains and gusty winds left many residents with flooded basements, downed trees, damaged roofs, downed power lines and broken gas mains. Many of these conditions could be life threatening. People lost electricity, needed additional trash pick-ups, required prompt assistance to have sewers opened up, etc. It is unfortunate, that in 19 years of alderman Zalewski being in the office, residents have not gotten the assistance they deserve, but help is on the way.
If elected, I will create an aldermanic DISASTER HOTLINE with open phone lines, not just a recording, to assist and provide information to residents of the 23rd Ward. My aldermanic staff and I will answer phones from 6am till midnight during any emergency to provide answers, take requests and expedite outage repairs. The residents would be able to call my office to find out when electricity will be restored, downed trees cleaned up or how to get assistance in pumping water from their basements. These are issues the public deserves to be helped with. It is just the right thing to do when people need help.

    Ms Goral, I like the idea of being able to report, access and receive timely information during a disaster but such services are generally available be it through Com-Ed, Chgo, FEMA, .... Having a clearing-house layer of mgmt that in my guess will say, 'call Com-ed,, heres the #" really does no good.

    Rather, the community services I would like to see accessible during a disaster, are pretty much the same as during happy times, just tightened up a bit. e.g.,

    1. Mobility. Getting around on a bicycle could be convenient. Power and docking info may be out for DIVVY bicycle stations but let's take that chance. Next, striped bicycle lanes that the community is already used to and a bicycle shop or two along Archer.

    2. Gathering places with tables, maybe heat, water or something warm. Independently-owned cafe's up and down Archer from Pulaski to Harlem. Cafe's are also a great place to access wifi if necessary.

    3. Independent family-run restaurants. See cafes above.

    4. Things may be cheaper at big-chain hardware stores, but it's the walkable neighborhood hardware stores that will be needed. Highlight them now and increase their on-site staff so that there are plenty for repairing window panes, ....... A note on hardware stores. I find it difficult to walk into and stay in a hardware store that has on display especially right by the cash registers (for easy cary-out) all those lawn chemicals, sprays, weed killers, .... How does staff manage to breath Scott's poisons throughout the workday. Imo, a hardware store w/o forcing a customer to be exposed to lawn chemicals is greatly appreciated.

    5. One of the first things people do immediately post a disaster is wander the streets. See Mobility and Cafes above.

    But why focus on disaster. Rather, let's focus on quality of life. See bicycles and cafes above.

    Was that you I saw at the Divvy station on Michigan & Oak?

How much money did Alderman Zalewski lose in Vegas and boats?

Re: Was Aldermanic Candidate Paulino Villareal fired from the Sherifs Department?

Is this true?!?!

Re: Yesterday I volunteered to register new voters in Southwest Chicago. As an Hispanic Woman I found it offensive when a Caucasian Man told me, "I guess its your guys (Meaning Hispanics) turn to take over according to Paulino Villareal". He then explained to me that Mr. Villareal is a candidate for Alderman in the 23rd Ward.

Re: Yesterday I volunteered to register new voters in Southwest Chicago. As an Hispanic Woman I found it offensive when a Caucasian Man told me, "I guess its your guys (Meaning Hispanics) turn to take over according to Paulino Villareal". He then explained to me that Mr. Villareal is a candidate for Alderman in the 23rd Ward. He told me to google a video that circulated online via social media: http://youtu.be/PMFlYdv8Wbw and then another of him answering questions from what seems to be a reporter: http://youtu.be/D-8gXm3p9f4. The man then ranted about Mr. Villareal's losing his job as an officer for a gun related incident, abusing his power, and beating his wife. He then went off on how Mr. Villareal stated that if he were elected, he would put on a bullet proof vest, carry a gun, and patrol the streets.

Since I had never heard of this, all I could tell this man was that I would look it up. Then explained to him that I might be of Hispanic Heritage, but I am an American,educated, Tax Payer, who served my country. Then told him that Mr. Villareal does not represent most Hispanics view. We are not trying to take over!!! We have the same American Dream as the next person, no matter their background.

After watching the videos I was speechless that Mr. Villareal spoke as if he had a "Latino Manifest Destiny" to prove. So I am not sure what or who to believe. Just hope Latinos/Hispanics don't just vote for him because of his race. After all look at how Alderman Solis sold out the Latino/Hispanic community in Pilsen.

What I do know is that as a Latina/Hispanic/American/Woman/Human, Mr. Villareal will not be getting my vote. Especially if he is rumored to been fired for abusing his power as an Officer and abusive. I hope those are just rumors, but even then just from watching his stump speech and interview his point of being "Officer Alderman" is ludicrous.

It takes more than a Spanish Surname to win my vote!

  • Thank you, 'Lady of Fire', for your open-minded, thoughtful and informative stance.
    Refreshing to come across in this ward...I too have seen this video and it impacted
    me likewise....
