  • I have resolved that the 28th ward, with few exceptions, are happy and content residing in a filthy drug ridden environment, governed by corrupt and inept public officials.

    I find it disheartening that the 28th ward could not produce a viable, legitimate candidate for alderman.

    I have resolved that the 28th ward, with few exceptions, are happy and content residing in a filthy drug ridden environment, governed by corrupt and inept public officials.

    I find it disheartening that the 28th ward could not produce a viable, legitimate candidate for alderman.

    Fortunately for me, i was able to carry out my plan to move from the west side, from the 28th ward, into a healthier community and environment. I was able to sell one property, and retain the other in the event I decide to move back into the ward.

    project north lawndale, gpblight, and others have my full and continued support in effecting positive change in the 28th ward.

    I cannot express the disappointment I feel towards Jasmine Jackson, and others for their inability to mount and engage an active campaign.

    Keep the fight going, I will support with words, thoughts, deeds and $$ when the 28th ward takes itself seriously.

  • Project North Lawndale Why are the W.Side Alderman Paid for NOTHING?

    I understand Mediabites! sometimes happiness is more important. We put in over 7 years in your current area. We have never felt more peace where we are now than ever before. Fortunately I do not live in your ward but was passionate enough to see change in that area. I...

    I understand Mediabites! sometimes happiness is more important. We put in over 7 years in your current area. We have never felt more peace where we are now than ever before. Fortunately I do not live in your ward but was passionate enough to see change in that area. I wish you luck. I have some idea of this need to have many of the negative people in one area so that the rest of the City appears "better" ..perhaps wards 28,24 are those area. Englewood is growing faster than your area. This says a lot about the leadership and lack of those who care there

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.

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 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
