One of my mature friend called this morning to inform me that she was glad to see some repairs being made at the car repair shop located on the West, north hand side of the street of Jackson and Pulaski.
As I drove pass to my surprise I found out it's another fast food joint possibly a (Maxwell) stand. Boy, she was not happy about that! She stated that no in the community was inform of the new business surfacing in their back yard. She stated that no one wants to smell onions ALL day and EVERY day.
She's applaud and discussed at her re-elected alderman Ervin.
This area is filled with senior citizen who are afraid to come and now you give the corner boys a new place to hang out and have random shoot outs.

Information

In respect to several comments, you are correct regarding investigating where the TIF funds are being spent. However, there are options for small businesses when the bank loans are out of reach: Accion Chicago ( loans are from $500. to $100,00) up to 72 months and Lisc Chicago ( loans are $500 to 2.5 million dollars) and a small number of grants. The information is not really being given to the masses...

Also on a different note, was the cheerleading/dancing program ever started in EGP? If not, are there any similar activities in the community? I did check with the park district. Thanks.

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!

    She may b a special Ed teacher who is active in community issues.

    Go to jjfor28.'com her site.

    Look around and see the scourge of blight in28

    All who do not rally to get new representation deserve to live in the deplorable conditions we suffer under,

    Do your best to help us break the scourge in 28 over the past 24 years.

    Nobody can deny stats.

    The best tools are early voting where one can register And Vote on the same day. Go to the bBoard of elections site for requirements and ID. Going to a polling place outside of the ward is a Good idea to escape the spies and any potential intimidation and retaliation.

    Rumors abound about rough intimidation by thugs and how scarey it is. Others talk a out someone showing up at their door asking them to recant their signature to get on the ballot. Those are also fearful.
