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.

    Lots of Man love in here... Just saying. LOL Im 5'2 and weigh 115 lbs. Oh yeah I am a bully. Again, ZALEWSKI asked to reward a grant of $3 Million Dollars to SHOP-n-SAVE, who is not union, and pays low wages unlike srobertsk preference of grocery store Jewel-Osco which they have one near SHOP-n-SAVE & an ALDI. ZALEWSKI then took several contributions from SHOP-n-SAVE and other companies that received TIF grants as well. These are facts. Yes, I did find that

    You might call it donating for "political stability", but I call it unethical. What I do agree with you is that this is not illegal. However, not long ago is was not illegal to hire someone based on their sex/race/religion/sexual preference; it was also not illegal not to long ago to apply Jim Crow Laws at the voting booth.

    Personally, srobertsk, I apologize if you felt bullied. As a female I often feel harassed even at the Senior Center where I volunteer often.

    I also agree with you two on their not being a need for a "Disaster Hotline". I think it would make more sense to get volunteer community members to have a neighborhood disaster task force to help alleviate any emergencies that the busy 311 lines can't get to. Then ask for donations from businesses for supplies and what not.

  • how can a woman be bullied by a man on the internet?? I can see in person but sitting at a keyboard the male and female are on an even playing field, and any person albeit male or female must have security isues

Three Stray Cats Seen on Friday & Saturday

Late Friday evening, on the 5100 block of Neenah I saw a medium-sized black cat. On Saturday night, I saw a light-colored, medium-to-long-haired cat on the 5100 block of Nashville. It looked thin and distressed. I also saw a white, gray, and orange cat on the same block a moment later.

Neighbors, if your cats go missing, put out fresh food and water for them every day to keep them close. Here is a very informative article about finding lost cats and/or dogs:

Fundraiser for disabled children in the 23rd Ward.

In the past few weeks ‪‎AlsIceBucketChallenge‬ became one of the biggest charity events ever. That event made me think how I can help our community. Let’s paraphrase the saying ‘think locally act globally’ and turn our attention to disabled children (0-15 years old) who live in the 23rd Ward and need our assistance and support. Every child deserves a happy childhood. Therefore, my ‪campaign‬ team and I are planning to organize a fundraiser to benefit these children. If you know any disabled child who lives in the 23rd Ward, please contact our campaign office by September 10, 2014 by sending an email to: friends@AnnaGoral.com.

Black and white stray cat on 54th and Nashville

I saw a stray cat, mostly black with white chest, on the 5400 block of Nashville at about 11:15. The cat was small, possibly a nearly-grown kitten, and I couldn't see if it had a collar. The cat paused when I tried to approach it, then ran away.

Please, neighbors, keep your cats inside and be aware of them when you open doors.

Our amazing team of community organizers started with just 10 salons and now we have more than double that. Team A23 is all about working with the community to benefit the entire 23rd Ward both east and west side of Cicero Ave. This is the kind of leadership and community outreach you can expect when we get Martin Arteaga elected to be the next 23rd Ward Alderman.

With many families struggling and living paycheck to paycheck in the 23rd Ward of Chicago we understand how costly “Going Back To School” time can be for families. That is why A23 Field Organizers went out to Local Hair Salons in the 23rd Ward to help offset the cost of Haircuts for Back to School at just $5.00 MONDAY TO THURSDAY starting August 18th-21st & August 25th-28th . Just present your school ID or print the coupon below and give to one of the following participating Hair Salons below.

Call for an appointment or if you have any questions call the Martin Arteaga for 23rd Ward Alderman’s office at 708-505-9166 or email info@arteaga23.com.

Working together we can bring the CHANGE the 23rd Ward needs! Thank you to all the hair salons and barber shops that have participated.

Please visit our website at www.move23forward.com for a complete list of salons as we continue to reach out to local businesses.

    Yep, Hammertime..I am here also! Jen was not demonize get anyone, but simply asking how giving away their services is helping the financial crisis of the business owners andtheir employees. For example, if I owed a salon that offered this deal for $5 and my usual price is $10 for a haircut, where is the other $5 dollars coming from? Did A23 supplement this effort by paying the deficit or just expected the owners to take a loss? Most salons and barbershops rent chairs to stylist and barbers, so they can service teir clients. Subsequently,they earn money in order topay their rent to owner. If stylists are asked to reduce their fee, it reduces the money they have to pay their personal bills and the rent to the owner. Again, stop getting bent out of shape, because someone calls your person to the carpet on an issue. This should be a warning to voters that A23 is about fluff and might skirt the issues once in office!

  • Actually most of these salons had similar promotions going on and were happy to join in. They had the option to say no, pick 1 day, or all 4 days. Of course there were people who said no but the majority of the salons that didn't participate was due to the fact that they were short staffed. Personally I think that with 40 salons this promotion was a success and we appreciate and thank all the salons/barber shops that participated. :-)
