Recognized this cat?

This cat is looking for it's home and is lost wandering outside. It would like to find its way home, or is looking for a foster home before winter arrives.

Not sure of the gender. Very passionate and affectionate, loves to be pet.

Response to SW Post on Zalewski Flyer

Joan,

In response to http://www.swchicagopost.com/2014/09/help-wanted-alderman-with-brains.html?m=1

You grow a back bone and show the flyer instead of your opinions and do what any good reporter would do and tell all the facts.

Zalewski is using tax money to feed his pockets.

You seem to stay idol when it comes to Zalewski.

Report on his bankruptcy, gambling addiction, and what a crappy Alderman he is.

You are not here to be pious, but to report all news,

For all those that have not seen the flyer it's attached.

  • If I recall, he also has/had cush comraderie with the CTA, and also, the then private contracting corporation that set up the infamous traffic cameras. Weren't these outfits also big donors to his re-election campaign last time?

  • Hammertime, first time i seen flier-well done.

DISASTER HOTLINE for the 23rdWard!

When a disaster strikes, people look for help and expect to get it from their elected officials. These past several months, we have faced cruel weather conditions where heavy rains and gusty winds left many residents with flooded basements, downed trees, damaged roofs, downed power lines and broken gas mains. Many of these conditions could be life threatening. People lost electricity, needed additional trash pick-ups, required prompt assistance to have sewers opened up, etc. It is unfortunate, that in 19...

When a disaster strikes, people look for help and expect to get it from their elected officials. These past several months, we have faced cruel weather conditions where heavy rains and gusty winds left many residents with flooded basements, downed trees, damaged roofs, downed power lines and broken gas mains. Many of these conditions could be life threatening. People lost electricity, needed additional trash pick-ups, required prompt assistance to have sewers opened up, etc. It is unfortunate, that in 19 years of alderman Zalewski being in the office, residents have not gotten the assistance they deserve, but help is on the way.
If elected, I will create an aldermanic DISASTER HOTLINE with open phone lines, not just a recording, to assist and provide information to residents of the 23rd Ward. My aldermanic staff and I will answer phones from 6am till midnight during any emergency to provide answers, take requests and expedite outage repairs. The residents would be able to call my office to find out when electricity will be restored, downed trees cleaned up or how to get assistance in pumping water from their basements. These are issues the public deserves to be helped with. It is just the right thing to do when people need help.

    Ms Goral, I like the idea of being able to report, access and receive timely information during a disaster but such services are generally available be it through Com-Ed, Chgo, FEMA, .... Having a clearing-house layer of mgmt that in my guess will say, 'call Com-ed,, heres the #" really does no good.

    Rather, the community services I would like to see accessible during a disaster, are pretty much the same as during happy times, just tightened up a bit. e.g.,

    1. Mobility. Getting around on a bicycle could be convenient. Power and docking info may be out for DIVVY bicycle stations but let's take that chance. Next, striped bicycle lanes that the community is already used to and a bicycle shop or two along Archer.

    2. Gathering places with tables, maybe heat, water or something warm. Independently-owned cafe's up and down Archer from Pulaski to Harlem. Cafe's are also a great place to access wifi if necessary.

    3. Independent family-run restaurants. See cafes above.

    4. Things may be cheaper at big-chain hardware stores, but it's the walkable neighborhood hardware stores that will be needed. Highlight them now and increase their on-site staff so that there are plenty for repairing window panes, ....... A note on hardware stores. I find it difficult to walk into and stay in a hardware store that has on display especially right by the cash registers (for easy cary-out) all those lawn chemicals, sprays, weed killers, .... How does staff manage to breath Scott's poisons throughout the workday. Imo, a hardware store w/o forcing a customer to be exposed to lawn chemicals is greatly appreciated.

    5. One of the first things people do immediately post a disaster is wander the streets. See Mobility and Cafes above.

    But why focus on disaster. Rather, let's focus on quality of life. See bicycles and cafes above.

    Was that you I saw at the Divvy station on Michigan & Oak?

    If Mrs. Goral will implement such an idea as a local emergency contact center, what is the harm to have a more localized reach for such information? I myself would prefer getting a real person on the line locally, to provide needed information, instead of getting an automated response, an operator in Khazakhstan, a continous busy signal, or one of the all-time worst-- 'elevator musack' on a scratchy tape loop!

    Seriously, this often happens when the public tries to access a big-daddy entity during such as Com Ed during an outage or other crisis time (i.e. Com Ed, which btw, is increasingly acting like BIG BROTHER with its so-called 'Smart Meters' takeover-- have you seen those spooky co. flyer inserts-- photo of a smart meter and the words
    "Hello there.")?

    But, I digress...back to a local hotline for area emergencies. Why not be 'plugged in' at the local level with such real-time information/assistance? If Mrs. Goral is concerned enough to swing this-- and I don't see why not-- then all the better for the community she would serve. Btw, her idea, does not preclude
    other ideas being implemented as well in the community, such as Chet 606 suggests, above...

    The point is, I have stopped contacting my current alderman-- for any help-- long ago,
    when I got no response to my letters, notes, emails in the past, about various issues-- and when I got a couple of very rude responses from his phone staffers. And that bit of flim-flam from the alderman, led me to take my vote and go elsewhere....
