    I forwarded Jasmines' she took herself off the write in because of a suit from the incumbent. I forwarded she relayed that she lost her appeal and was not on the ballot.

    She does not seem to be able to be consistent enough to keep those informed who would vote...

    I forwarded Jasmines' she took herself off the write in because of a suit from the incumbent. I forwarded she relayed that she lost her appeal and was not on the ballot.

    She does not seem to be able to be consistent enough to keep those informed who would vote for her or support her.

    Many,of us,spent,time and money trying to help her. She however had other plans that she,did not share universally with us.

    She also did not have advice from anyone who knew how to run or manage a campaign. She told me she,had,retained an attorney whose advice she was following.

    There is some truth that learning how to play the game and win is a political skill. Without it, one will never win.

    We have to face it. Nobody wants the job of alderman of 28.....who is skillful enough to be a guiding light and lead us out of the abyss.

    I want to know,where the angry Kedzie corridor people were????? Did they cote today? I didn't see many of their faces.

    The academy awards,ceremony gave a standing ovation for Selma a couple nights ago.....where were the black voters of 28 today??

    Where are those who are so angry they can't wait to get in an angry group and rabble????

    We need outsiders because the insiders are hopeless.....

    70% of,the neighborhood is EMPTY...do your best to get a friend to come and live here!!!!It is all a numbers,game.

The Businesses Donating to your Alderman in your ward

Here is a link of the most Recent Donations to 24th and 28th Ward Aldermen. A Deli gave Ervin $5000.00.. I had no idea that this particular deli did this much business. When you start finding out where your Tax dollars are going to, you may get upset enough to finally VOTE!

Tri-Taylor Community Association Needs A Logo

Hello,

The newly formed TTCA needs a logo for materials, letterhead, banners, etc.

Is there anyone in the community who would be willing to design
something, or maybe several people could submit different designs for
the newly elected board to choose from? The logo should be in jpg or
some other electronic image that could be put onto our letters and other
materials that we post or send out.

I'm betting the hood has some folks who are pretty good...

I'm betting the hood has some folks who are pretty good at designing
such a thing and could help us out with this.

Please send your designs or inquiries to me at this e-mail address hendrick@uic.edu or http://www.uic.edu/cuppa/pa/

We would like to have the logo within the next 3 weeks.

Thanks

Becca, TTCA Secretary

Press Release
February 9, 2015

Announcing the WRITE IN CANDIDACY of Jasmine Jackson

Jasmine Jackson, a candidate for 28th Ward Alderman, filed her Write In Candidacy Feb 4, 2015 with the Board of Elections.

Armed with a growing grassroots campaign, this Dark Horse Candidate intends to come from behind and defeat the incumbent Jason Ervin. Ervin is the protégé of Ed Smith, who held office for over two decades. During the last 25 years the ward has suffered massive population loss, closings of businesses, schools, and transportation. As a result of inadequate services and resources, neighborhoods are designated blighted areas, and violent crimes have increased- much of which goes unreported.

To date, all candidates who filed the required petitions for Alderman of the 28th ward were disqualified by the Board of Elections. Most due to signature challenges. Jasmine Jackson filed a Circuit Court Case which has been transferred to the Appeals Court. She believes she can win the challenge. Court delays are also a favorite trick in the political toolbox of Chicago Politicians.

Challenging signatures of opponents is the most common challenge an incumbent will make. With no opponent the incumbent is assured of another 4 years in office.

Jasmine Jackson is making a serious effort to win and make sure the 28th Ward receives equitable services and resources, policing, economic development, housing, and competitive schools. Dilapidated buildings and vacant lots in the East and West Garfield Park neighborhoods in the 28th Ward document decades of neglect. New residents who were remapped into the 28th Ward will be horrified at the service and dismal record provided by the incumbent. Jasmine Jackson is requesting strong media and community support.

“Residents of the 28th Ward have been left behind for too many decades!"

Please give this campaign the kind of exposure it deserves.

    U see. More pontificating than work of substance. Where are the dozens of angry Kedzie corridor meeting Wh stomped and hollered at Marshall HS.

    None have participated in this meaningful way to REMOVE an inCumbent thro.ugh the democratic process.

    We get what we deserve because pontificating, bafooning, whining, debating, is cathartic and an emotional release. This then paralyzed the ward and freezes us in our Blighted condition where crime runs rampant.

    The only viable candidate is Write in Candidate Jasmine Jackson.
