Ald Burnett needs to go!

Compare our two west loop alderman:

Ald Solis listened to the west loop residents regarding the planned apartment buildings that were proposed for the Charmichael's site. He got it rezoned:

Compare that to Ald Burnett - who has not responded to residents to concerns about a project proposed for 111 S. Peoria.

Elections are in February and Burnett's opponent is Gabe Beukinga:

We have got to get Burnett out!!! All he cares about is lining his pockets!

  • Agree with Larry and PJChgo. The sad fact is that Burnett knows he is very likely to be re-elected despite his conduct in the West Loop. He's got enough votes on the west side of the 27th ward to win the election and doesn't need to win any approval ratings...

    Agree with Larry and PJChgo. The sad fact is that Burnett knows he is very likely to be re-elected despite his conduct in the West Loop. He's got enough votes on the west side of the 27th ward to win the election and doesn't need to win any approval ratings in our area. His public comment to his Gabe Beukinga during the Nobu community meeting, "I'm gonna kick your butt", proves his confidence. Just compare his style to Solis'.

    I would challenge Samuel Caplan on how well Burnett handles community concerns. Samuel, are you speaking about the Medical Marijuana dispensary that he approved without considering the community's concerns? Are you thinking about how he's handling the proposed landmark of Fulton/Randolph district despite local business owners' clear opposition? Are you referring to the the repeated requests coming from the community about having more transparency to new developments, which by the way, he publicly shrugs off? Or are you impressed with the way he lacks having the common courtesy to respond to local community concerns documented in well drafted letters sent to him? If you truly believe he is responsive and attentive, then I would seriously question who you benchmark his behavior against.

  • I am hoping Gabe will put on a strong campaign and get Burnett out. I am hoping as a community we can get the word out and get someone other than Burnett. If not, I am afraid the west loop will become the south loop (density, no community feeling).

Veterans Day: Tuesday, November 11

In 1968 Congress determined that in 1971 the fourth Monday in October would be the new date for observing Veteran's Day. Such chaos resulted with different states holding Veteran's Day in October or November that in 1975, legislation was voted on to return the celebration to November 11 in 1978.
