South loop and burns

Will burns who will be the new alderman in the south loop needs to learn the boundaries and needs of the citizens. He refuses to respond to comments or questions. It's time for a change. He has one agenda and that's to vote lock step with Emanuel. We need cops not bike lanes nor a Lucas museum.
