Election coming up. Be smart people. Be weary of Candidates.

During this election time with campaign ads swarming our TVs and constant critiques of a variety of elected officials and other candidates... I am in constant confusion and frustration on who to vote for and why I should.

After reading some posts I came upon one of a candidate running near where I grew up. I had seen this individual among many social media accounts promoting this facade that I found sensible. But, today I encountered an experience that happens to many voters like myself. This individual disguised himself as someone who could "Change" the 23rd ward. But, instead tonight I saw a reoccurrence of the same old politics we see every day in this country... a Fake.

This individual made a promise to other individuals and evidently did not follow through. What does that say of his honesty and integrity? It doesn't help that he has how many lawsuits against him as well. Anyway, my whole rant is that its disgusting and atrocious to see how this individual feels he deserves to be a representative of my family members and he cannot even pay his campaign staff.

This is a huge warning that only foreshadows a character that will say anything to you for a vote and for something in his interest. All i see is ulterior motives. Many of these young kids are interns and are already indebted in a long list of unpaid tuition. This guy can raise money for his campaign, but he can't pay his staff. What kind of a boss are you to have your staff do this in return?

Martin Arteaga, you're clearly not a man of your word nor are you a man of virtue. If this fight has gone this nasty that your web designer did this in retaliation, what kind of a boss are you? I will not vote for you this upcoming election and I hope you do not have the audacity to show up at my friends' houses either. It's a disgrace to have us fooled.

On behalf of Matthew 7:15, all I can say is you're a "wolf in sheep's clothing." PAY THOSE PEOPLE.

Arteaga Rumor Mill

I understand that there is some mudslinging going around, after all it is Chicago Politics. Don’t believe the “he said-she said” rumors. (BTW, I think the caricature of me is hilarious: )

Let me set the record straight:

1. I have ZERO convictions on my record. Check the record if you would like. Chicago Election Code states that a convicted felon cannot be elected for Alderman.
2. I have lived in the Southwest side for 23 years. If I didn’t...

I understand that there is some mudslinging going around, after all it is Chicago Politics. Don’t believe the “he said-she said” rumors. (BTW, I think the caricature of me is hilarious: )

Let me set the record straight:

1. I have ZERO convictions on my record. Check the record if you would like. Chicago Election Code states that a convicted felon cannot be elected for Alderman.
2. I have lived in the Southwest side for 23 years. If I didn’t live in the ward, I wouldn’t be on the ballot. It’s as simple as that.
3. Please note that a lot of these rumors are being purported by a person that was fired by my campaign because they were caught stealing $. His dishonesty got him fired. He is a chronic liar and a thief. He said he would go work for Zalewski, so I’m assuming that’s why he’s trying to blast me and Anna Goral.

The following people are the same person: Soxfever51, David Devine, Marty Arteaga, NE Mommy, Joan of Chi, Utalkin2me, Hammertime, JeremyChicago, abc123, Leslie Nope, Lynnchex, Aaron Cheselske.

Please note that I will not be going back and forth on any of these posts or giving them the time of day. If you would like to talk to me in person, I invite you to come by my headquarters at 5215 S. Archer Ave. You can find out more about our campaign at www.arteaga23.com or www.facebook.com/move23forward .

There will be a Garfield Ridge Civic League Candidates night where you can feel free to ask any questions on January 21st at St. Jane de Chantal Church. I look forward to seeing everyone there. Thank you and God bless.

Martin Arteaga

  • Pretty in Pink, you must be a volunteer for Arteaga's campaign. Hey by chance are you the Volunteer who's son is doing Federal time for Drug Trafficking ? Who is a high Ranking Member of the Satan Disciples Street Gang, who's family was mentioned on the cable program on the History Channel called Gangland ? Please you or Martin please answer.

  • David Divine everybody jump jump

    Pretty in Pink you been privy to the Arteaga OG kush I see. Hey smoke up and maybe you can forget about your hip. You have some nerve doubting voters have enough intelligence to see Martin Arteaga for the dirty politician he is. He has been arrested for domestic violence and does not pay his bills. On top of it all he does not live in the ward. Unless you count the spare attic in your Moms house a place for a grown man to live.

    Listen Linda! This race is not only about the kids, safety, corn carts, and over priced chocolate milk at Peaches. Its about me getting elected with Teacher Union Support and then cut deals with my UNO buddies and top Client of my failing construction company to open several charter schools in the 23rd Ward. Hey I love Charter Schools! So do my nephews who attend UNO Charter Schools and several of my donors that work for UNO. But this race is about a lot more than just that! More importantly, its about electing me for Alderman so I can move out of my parents attic and buy a house in the nice part of the Ward with my new big FAT Alderman salary. Elect me so I can finally afford to move my Baby Mamma from our house in Blue Island. Some of you cool people can even come to my parties when the Jefita is not around and spark it up. Oh yes and you can also help my drug and alcoholic campaign staff get paid city jobs. Hey then we can all play, "Started from the Bottom Now we Here" at my new big fat Alderman house in the nice side of the 23rd Ward. Not in the crappy part of the 23rd Ward where my parents live and i pretend to so I can be your next Alderman! Dude that would be sick and dope as heck! I can then start my huge development of Section 8 rentals in the 23rd Ward with Auntie Anna Gorral. So yes back to the point. You suckers in the 23rd Ward better get out and vote for Martin Arteaga for Alderman of the (sorry had to take a beer brake with my campaign staff)...

Martin arteaga/GORAL working with invitation homes for section 8?

Martin arteaga, Anna Goral are working with invitation homes to bring more section 8 to Garfield ridge and clearing. Martin arteaga has family members working for the company. Anna goral is working with arteaga in having her husband and family rehab some of these homes in exchange for a kickback after these homes are section 8 occupied. Known fact Anna goral doesn't care about our area because she lives in PALOS so what ever happens to us she doesn't care. Martin arteaga only cares what happens out east. Do u really want what 61st kedzie looks like over here???? I end my point.

Alderman Michael Zalewski's intimidation begins

Source: Anna Goral - Facebook

The same day I have placed my political sign on the lawn next to my building it was taken down and I got ticketed by Chicago Department of Streets and Sanitation.
(photo 1 and 2)

I just wonder if Alderman Zalewski got his ticket since his signs have been on city property (57th & Central) since last Monday, and they are still there today.
(photo 2 and 4)

The office of Chicago Department of Street and Sanitations is only 2 blocks away from where Zalewski’s signs are, so they must have seen them…

  • If anyone in the right mind actually looked at the photos.... It is not a ticket. So anna please stop telling people it is. It clearly says on there that it's a notice and it explains why u got a notice. So quit spreading rumors

Fioretti Rolls Out TIF Platform, Blasts Marriott Hotel TIF Project

Chicago mayoral candidate and progressive Ald. Bob Fioretti (2nd) is putting a spotlight on the controversial, mayor-backed $55 million tax increment financing (TIF) project for a new Marriott hotel near McCormick Place.

Aldermanic candidates and members of the Bridgeport Alliance, Pilsen Alliance, Prairie District Neighborhood Watch and Reclaim Chicago joined Fioretti and fellow progressive Ald. Scott Waguespack (32nd) for a Wednesday morning press conference near the corner of Cermak Road and Prairie Avenue to "denounce the $55 million in TIF money given to Marriott Corporation for a hotel and complex near McCormick Place," according to a release....

I asked how is that possible on a Sunday at noon..nobody was even there when I got there..they couldn't have been opened more than an few hours..her response matched the overall look of the place.." I dun know"... Ugh... Though its further from me...and only slightly better, I'm gonna use the popeyes at Ford City from now on.

The best ones I've been to for overall food quality, personality and appearance have been the ones on 95th street by Little Company of Mary, and the one on by 90th Harlem.

    I'd like to know this answer too please...most will not take toys unless brand new...I have sooooo much from my children and grandchildren. Thank you Peter for asking this.

They are even willing to arrange for pick up or of course you can drop them off at: 5732 South Lowe Ave, Chicago, IL 60621. If your interested in donating please call 773-351-3336 to speak to Brian Anderson; executive director. Hope we can help put a smile in people's faces this holiday!
