Follow The Groundhog’s Example: Stay Indoors

Every year, in February, we wait to see if Punxsutawney Phil, the world’s most famous groundhog, will predict six more weeks of winter. Huge crowds have waited for Phil’s prediction each year since 1886. For Phil, seeing his shadow predicts six more weeks of winter-like weather. More often than not, he sees his shadow and goes back inside.

How can Cochran say that he's SURPRISED by the Runoff in the 20th Ward?

Cochran says that he's SURPRISED by the Runoff in the 20th Ward. Not sure why since he was FORCED into a Runoff in the LAST 20th Ward Aldermanic Election by Che Rhymefest Smith. He assuredly really is NOT ready for this Runoff!

Willie Cochran Surprised by Runoff in 20th Ward, but He Says He's Ready
http://www.dnainfo.com/chicago/20150225/woodlawn/willie-cochran-suprised-by-runoff-20th-ward-but-says-hes-ready

Mayor Rahm Emanuel and 20th Ward Ald. Willie Cochran are both headed for a runoff election on April. 7.

Willie Cochran has also publicly endorsed Mayor Rahm Emanuel for re-election.

  • In Che Rhymefest Smith's defense, he was diligent and persistent and he really did try. You don't get 45.4 percent of the votes without putting in some major efforts. Cochran won by about 200 votes and WE KNOW EXACTLY where those votes came from.

    ***SIGH***

    As a former Precinct Captain of the 20th Ward 26th Precinct, when former Alderman and Ward Committeeman, Arenda Troutman, went to prison, I was one of those 20th Ward residents who VOTED FOR WILLIE COCHRAN! I BELIEVED in him because I bought into his aggressive and progressive campaigning. Where I made my mistake, I DIDN'T GET INVOLVED. I just went to the polls and voted and I HAVE NEVER BEEN MORE DISAPPOINTED IN MY LIFE at the DISCONNECT between Alderman and the community, not to mention at being treated like the Elected Official is doing us a favor and that we the people need to seek him out instead of him being transparent and accountable to those of us who voted him into office.

    I HAVE STORIES which include mishaps with someone in Cochran's camp. This individual was an ACCURATE REPRESENTATIVE of the Cochran Administration, a perfect extension to who this man is. He's a liar and a bully and he uses STRONG ARM tactics to get what he wants or thinks he deserves. He made a serious mistake when he barked at my door. I AM A FIGHTER, WILL NOT BE BULLIED & I'M NEVER INTIMIDATED! That is why at 51 years of age, I am heading to law school in the Fall so that I can FIGHT for the weak, the disenfranchised, and the manipulated AGAINST bullies and systems like the Cochran Administration.

    I'm working DIRECTLY with Kevin Bailey. Needed to ensure that I wasn't making the same mistake. I messed up not getting involved in Che Rhymefest Smith's campaign. However, I AM MAKING UP FOR MY MISTAKES NOW. I ADORE Kevin Bailey. Unlike Willie Cochran, KEVIN BAILEY IS A MAN OF INTEGRITY AND MERIT who genuinely want to be of service to the people of the 20th Ward and he was ALWAYS the most viable candidate to run against the incumbent.

  • Willie Cochran doesn't believe enough in himself or his own campaign which is why HE TELLS THE VOTERS LIES about Kevin Bailey. Cochran is MANIPULATIVE and has had a monopoly over a certain group of people in the 20th Ward. As a 19 year resident and former Precinct Captain, I...

    Willie Cochran doesn't believe enough in himself or his own campaign which is why HE TELLS THE VOTERS LIES about Kevin Bailey. Cochran is MANIPULATIVE and has had a monopoly over a certain group of people in the 20th Ward. As a 19 year resident and former Precinct Captain, I know EXACTLY what he did in his runoff with Che Rhymefest Smith and what he thinks is his ace in the hole in this RUNOFF. He says that he's ready for the RUNOFF with Kevin Bailey. He is NOT ready. Instead of him doing somersaults at winning his last re-election, he should have taken the time to LISTEN to what being forced into a RUNOFF actually meant in the first place, what were voters saying to him, those who didn't vote in favor of his re-election in only his 2nd Term in office. Instead, he beat his chest in victory and continued business as usual. SURPRISED that he's in a RUNOFF AGAIN in what would have been his 3rd Term in office, that speaks volumes about this SAD AND UNSCRUPULOUS MAN! He doesn't care about his constituents, he is clearly not listening to them, and he is OUT OF TOUCH with them...by design.

    IT IS TIME FOR HIM TO CHANGE CAREERS, ONCE AGAIN!

    Todd Agosto, as tax paying, voting Bronzeville resident stakeholders, we have never asked politicians for permission to create or implement visions and plans for the future development of Bronzeville, as an emerging African American heritage tourism destination!

    That is why we have been relatively successful and effective in our sustainable (20) twenty year protracted struggle, to develop Bronzeville/Black Metropolis as a premier African American oriented heritage tourism destination.

    The question today is, which of the two candidates campaiging for Mayer of Chicago, will present the best platform that serves the economic, business and civic engagement and empowerment issues effecting African American communities in Chicago?

Commentary from this EveryBlock Chicago account holder.

My name is Michele Evans-Brock.

This account was initially created IN SUPPORT OF 20th Ward Aldermanic Candidate Kevin Bailey.

I later started supporting Mayoral Candidate Willie Wilson. Now, during the RUNOFFS, I am supporting Mayoral Candidate "Chuy" Garcia.

This is NOT the account of ANY of the above mentioned candidates and they therefore are not able to respond to candidate related questions of voters.

***GENERAL STATEMENT***

I personally do NOT and will NOT engage in discussions, especially to NEGATIVE responses of which the responders have long sense been MUTED or will be MUTED. To do so is unproductive use of valuable and productive time and pulls unnecessary focus from what I, as a supporter of these candidates, am working to accomplish.

Those who do not like me or MY CHOICE of candidates, I'm unsure how many times they feel that they need to express their NEGATIVE views, perceptions, and assessments, but, they can feel free to continue doing so WITHOUT my participation.

These posts are meant to reach the UNDECIDED and to provide enough information for the UNDECIDED to maybe make a decision for my candidates and also to keep current supporters updated on current events with the candidates campaigns. They can also read the negative responses and make whichever decision that they feel in their hearts that they need to make.

THANK YOU and GOD BLESS!

Sincerely,

More dirty politics in the 6th Ward

According to Glen Fulton, president of the nonprofit Greater Englewood Community Development Corporation, Brian Sleet, chief of staff to Ald. Roderick Sawyer (6th), called him today and told him he needs to "be careful."

Fulton said Sleet was referring to him supporting 6th Ward aldermanic candidate Richard Wooten over Sawyer and indicated that if Sawyer is re-elected Fulton's organization should not expect any support from Sawyer.

"They were very close and I didn't really see anybody else out there," Radcliffe said. "It's just ironic, we were both in the same area at the same time and we don't know why the shots were fired, but they were fired. Someone could've been killed. One of my campaigners could've been killed. ... I could've been killed."

After Bailey spoke with police, Radcliffe, the current Morgan Park baseball coach, and Bailey both agreed they should leave the area.

"I went up to him, shook his hand and told him and his mother to be careful. We said it wasn't a good time for us to continue this," Radcliffe said.

Radcliffe, posted on his campaign Facebook page that he and his campaign members were "in great danger" Saturday.

"Ernest was out campaigning ... with his campaign crew when a shooting broke out," the post said.

Like Bailey, Radcliffe said the incident was an example of why they were seeking to become alderman.

"This is the reason our community needs to elect a new alderman because of the danger our community is in," Radcliffe wrote. "Ernest will not be scared off by no one. Ernest will stand his ground and continue to fight for his community while others are sitting by doing absolutely nothing."

WHEN: FEBRUARY 21, 2015 at approximately 4:40pm

LOCATION: Intersection of 63rd St. and Evans

CHICAGO, IL - On February 21, 2015 at approximately 4:40 pm, Kevin Bailey, candidate for Alderman of the 20th Ward, was at the 20th Ward's Early Voting location greeting voters. Suddenly, without notice or warning, a group of young men raised a gun in the direction of Bailey, and without saying a word, fired the hand gun in Bailey's direction.

Kevin Bailey was not injured in this incident and is filing a police report.

During the course of the campaign, Kevin Bailey and his campaign team have received numerous threats and attempts at intimidation. “I will not be intimidated, I will not be afraid," Bailey said. "These are the issues of our community, and I refuse to hide or let up on the fight to establish a better and safer community and continue to challenge the status quo. And incidents like this only serve to fortify me to ensure that resident and visitors never have to endure threats to life and property.”

    Until a few days ago, waging a write-in campaign for 20th Ward alderman was not on my ‘to-do’ list. I hadn’t deemed a write-in campaign viable because of the massive apathy throughout the ward. Obviously, I’m thinking differently now. Two reasons: the library and Rahm. Overflow crowds at all the public forums where the Obama Library is concerned indicates there is, at the very least, a lot of people paying attention to that one issue. And chances are, they’ll vote. As for the (anti) Rahm group, I’m not so sure. While there is palpable, shall we say, dislike for the incumbent mayor prevalent in the 20th Ward, it’s hard to predict if that means people will come out and vote against him. Some studies indicate people tend to not vote at all when feeling negatively about a candidate or an election. In other words, it’s hard to know if the same people who say, “I hate Rahm ‘cause he closed the schools”, will vote. I certainly hope they do (vote) and I hope they realize that the ultimate form of protest at the polls is the write-in vote. It will tell the entrenched politicians (Republican, Democrat, whoever), in a language they can understand, that you can never be taken for granted again. When a write-in ballot is cast the political ‘tremors’ will not only be felt in the 20th Ward, they’ll feel it at City Hall, in Springfield and in Washington, D.C.. (Oh yeah, he’ll be paying attention.) We should give the entire Machine establishment somethin’ they ain’t never had. Let us reject not only City Hall’s chosen candidate, let us reject and repudiate the entire system that creates him (the incumbent) and others who want to be him (challengers that engage in ‘dirty tricks’). We have to not only break the Machine, we must demonstrate, in the strongest way possible, our total disdain for what it hath wrought. WRITE-IN: JEROME A. DAVIS, 20TH WARD ALDERMAN.

    . . .and here's what some voters are saying/thinking:

    Yesterday afternoon I found two fliers, folded together and inserted in the fence above my mailbox. One was a copy of the flier that began this thread (a photo of that flier is linked above by Todd A) and a second was a Kevin Bailey campaign flier. Both were on exactly the same paper stock/size: 8.5" x 11" glossy magazine style paper. This does not conclusively prove that the Bailey campaign is responsible for distributing the lie-based hit piece on Cochran represented by the first flier, but it is consistent with that theory and also consistent with a pattern of "press releases" from apparent Bailey campaign operatives that make sensational claims against other 20th Ward aldermanic candidates, or scaremongering inferences, without weak or zero supporting evidence (e.g. see “Press Release - Attempted Shooting involving 20th Ward aldermanic Candidate, Kevin Bailey.” Or The ILLEGAL PRACTICES of 20th Ward aldermanic Candidate, Andre Smith). It is notable to me that the Bailey campaign has so far taken no steps on this thread to clarify the issues raised or distance themselves from the deeply unethical and outrageous claims contained in the anti-Cochran flier. Because of this pattern of activity, I am not confident that Mr. Bailey’s actual identity is even remotely related to the identity he is seeking to promote vis-à-vis his official campaign fliers. Far too much of Mr. Bailey’s campaign material seems to focus on unsupported innuendo and either passively accepted or actively promoted slander. I hope the gentleman is not as deeply flawed as the materials that seem to be promoted by his campaign, but so far, the evidence is not encouraging.

    All the more reason(s) to bypass the balloted candidates. Separate yourself. WRITE-IN: JEROME A. DAVIS, 20TH WARD, ALDERMAN.
