36th ward aldermanic election candidate information

My home address was changed from the 38th ward to the 36th ward without any input
from me. Now I have an alderman that I did not elect. I see lots of information about the 38th and 45th wards. I need some information about the candidates for the 36th ward.
Help!

  • @Anita

    I would love an opportunity to come meet you and speak to you and your neighbors regarding the new 36th ward. As mentioned earlier in the thread, Steinmetz College Prep is hosting a candidates forum on Feb 5th at 6pm, in the meantime please visit my website to get some additional info on my candidacy.

    www.gilbert2015.com

    Looking forward to hearing from you.

    Respectfully,

    Gilbert Villegas
    36th Ward Aldermanic Candidate

Let's call our Alderman Ariel Reboyras and complained, so please call him starting MONDAY at 773-794-3095 before the zoning change or he gets his license!!

This corner has children coming from high school, from St.Barts, and it is ridiculous to put another car wash at such a busy intersection. A few years ago I was walking with my children to the Chinese Kitchen and watched a driver run the green left turn arrow and nearly killed a handicap person in a wheelchair, proceeded to jump the curb and landed in the metal fence destroying it. This is a crazy enough corner. No more car related traffic traps!!!!

Commercial transportation for seniors who can't walk well

If you have senior who can't walk more than 25 feet with a walker, and can't use stairs anyone have first hand knowledge of a company that can come over scoop the senior up get them into their van transport to a local doctor's visit then bring them back after the appointment and deposit the senior back into their place at home?

They want me to move since I am the first neighbor speaking out for the rest who are sooo tired of all their drama in sooo many years. The police know them very well since they have been there on many, many occasions but not with me. I heard that making a complaint with Arena won't get me anywhere from previous complaints people made on different incidents. Will going to the Caps meetings help me? I will not move since I love my apt. and the area and all the neighbors except for them. I will not bow down to them.

Ald. Nicholas Sposato's Service Office From the 38th Ward to your kitchen table

What's wrong with the above account which commented twice today in a Portage Park thread. The above account was open in 2012 and up to May 2014 events held in Ald. Sposato's 36th Ward were occasionally posted. When did Ald Sposato take over the 38th Ward? Guess Sposato doesn't need to earn the support of the 38th Ward voters he just moves in. Hay Nick how bout showing 38th Ward voters and 38th Ald Cullerton a little respect?

Jefferson Park Transit Center To Get $25M Renovation

The $25 million renovation of the transit center at 4917 N. Milwaukee Ave. — which includes stops for nearly a dozen buses, the Chicago Transit Authority's Blue Line and Metra's Union Pacific Northwest Line, is expected to include an improved bus turn-around, new canopies, lighting, escalators and stairs, officials said.

http://www.dnainfo.com/chicago/20150123/jefferson-park/jefferson-park-transit-center-renovation-get-5m-from-tif-districts

The Renovation will be funded in part by $5M from the Jefferson Park and Portage Park TIF Districts.

During the station renovation, a new crosswalk will be installed across Milwaukee Avenue, Brugh said. Plans for the crosswalk have been in the works since May 2013, when 45th Ward residents set aside $125,000 of Arena's discretionary budget for the project.

Hi there neighbors! We are looking to adopt a puppy next month and I was wondering if anyone has a suggestion or past experiences to draw upon to help me decide where to adopt. Here are a few facts about us:

-We will only consider adopting. We do not believe in "designer" dogs.
-We have a large yard with 8' high fencing.
-We are adamant about getting a young puppy so that we can peacefully introduce it to our 2 cats and 4 chickens. The dog MUST get along with the other animals and be able to be in their presence unsupervised without threat.
-We are looking for a large breed with protective instincts.
-We are looking to spend no more than $300 for adoption fees.

If you've adopted, I'd love to hear what your experience was. Did you have a good experience? A negative experience? Why? Any HELPFUL comments are appreciated. All off topic comments will be ignored.

Relocated car on Pensacola

There is a car on 5500 block of W. Pensacola that the city website says was relocated from 5600 block of W. Pensacola. No city sticker, but has plates and an expired Elmwood Park vehicle sticker. Grayish slate color Lexus 4 door. FYI, it has a flat tire. Just FYI for anyone who owns it it or might know who does. It has been there about a week. Thinking it might be someone who works around here since it has no city sticker.

  • It was not relocated in front of a business, it was relocated FROM in front of a business. Someone would have called it in as abandoned soon. I was trying to help find the owner.

    I have seen only two threads asking for good quality meats and veggies. I see far more complaints about how much low quality food costs. Including one about finding cheaper meat compared to jewel. You get what you pay for. We get ours from the family farms that come to the farmers market. All of the meat is ethically raised and processed. The costs are only slightly higher. A pound of chicken runs $6-$7. The veggies are non-gmo and little or no pesticide.

    Whole foods step 4 is also a good choice. However, even step one is far better quality compared to jewel. The up front cost to switch to non-gmo and organic food was costly. Now that it's done our food bills are very reasonable.

The 2014 file is called 2014 Program, found close to the tab's bottom on the left side.

My past links referred to a pdf file instead of the Capital Improvement Program tab, which became obsolete with any subsequent same-year data update.

Once the chosen year file is open, hold CTL key as you press F key. Then enter Ward: 36 to get to the first line of the ward detail. You will find that all 2014 Ward 36 dollars were spent on infrastructure, mostly street resurfacing. No park district expenses.

To find Ward 36th's park spending, you have to go to 2013 and 2012 Menu Report. In 2013, both Shabonna and Hiawattha playlots got $310,277 in total. In 2012, Shabonna got $85,301. These park playlots got multiple sources of funding, grants and ward matching.

    After last years severe winter the streets were in very bad shape so after speaking with members of the community we decided to use the bulk of the 2014 menu funds on street resurfacing. In 2012 and 2013 I allocated funds to improve our local parks. For Hiawatha Park we worked with the Chicago Park District and split the cost 50/50. For Shabbona Park we worked with St. Rep Arroyo and the Chicago Park District to split the cost 3 ways. These park improvements are not only great for the children to have new playgrounds but help improve the neighborhood as a whole which will help attract more families and businesses to the area.
