  • Dave- Scott is anti-status quo in that he refuses to vote along with Rahm's left-wing lackeys on the city council, so you two should really be kindred spirits!

  • Joe Lake Facebook, Twitter, Klout, EveryBlock, Yahoo Groups

    In 2007, Scott Waguespack defeated formen Ald. Ted Matlak (appointed as alderman in 1998) by 121 votes. The Ted Matlak-Terry Gabinski-Dan Rostenkowski-Joe Rodtenkowski regime had run the 32nd Ward for nearly one hundred years. That's status quo.

Wrightwood Park Dog Friendly Area

I always see dogs running around at Wrightwood Park, with and without a leash. I have a dog myself and was thinking about starting the process to create a dog friendly area at Wrightwood Park. I looked up how to start this process and I think it will require a grass roots effort, including public meetings and site and usage surveys. I wanted to know if anyone has attempted to do this already and if anyone would be interested in supporting this cause. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated! http://ward32.org/wp-content/uploads/2010/03/Dog-Park-Instructions.pdf

  • i think as long as everyone picks up dog poop , people are fine. the problem is that when kids come home with poop on shoes parents complain.. that brings police and they have to enforce the leash laws.
    also barking can get peoples attention a few condos around park

    As for the money trail you will find it here: https://www.elections.il.gov/campaigndisclosure/contributionssearchbyallcontributions.aspx.

    With regard to the Tribune's endorsement for the 2nd Ward, it is clear that they did not do their job investigating the backgrounds and campaign contributions of all the Aldermen, unless of course they are turning a blind eye to everything they have reported on over the years including the parking meter scandal.

I hope the voters of the 2nd Ward get out and vote if they haven't already done so. They will also find it may be more difficult to vote because when they redrew the boundaries they did not bother to place any of the polls within walking distance or consider the use public transportation to get to their polling stations. Just look at the 18th precinct. Over 1000 voters in the SoNo Condo and SoNo East towers have to drive or walk 1.4 miles to vote at the Salvation Army on Clybourn. There are no buses or trains. Maybe Uber can step up to the plate on this one!

    I am not fond of Kass but he is right on this one and that is exactly why he is endorsing Stacey Pfingsten for Ward 2. https://twitter.com/jzliberty/status/568963130908413953
    Anyone who has to raise hundreds of thousands of dollars from outside interest groups and receives no money from the Ward voter's themselves says a lot.

Tire and other auto related thefts

My Honda CR-V spare tire was stolen in June 2014 on Altgeld/Racine, so I put a locking lug nut and a cable lock on my new spare. This morning, I noticed theives tried to steal my spare tire AGAIN, but thankfully the locks prevented it. I definately recommend securing your tires. I also had my catalytic converter stolen in April 2014, so that has an alarm on it too. Very frustrating.

7 days to remove Rahm, 7 ways to remove Rahm

I’m running for Mayor because I love OUR city. But from neighborhood to neighborhood people tell me we are headed in the wrong direction. Our current mayor doesn't care about safe streets and strong neighborhoods.

Rahm Emanuel has the support of corporate investment bankers and his cronies on Wall Street. That's because his policies make them richer every day.

What we do have is people -- people who knock thousands of doors, make thousands of calls, make small contributions, and create conversation about the race wherever they go.

Time is short. We have less than a week to go until Election Day. I need your help to ensure our vision for ONE Chicago.

- Bob Fioretti
/
Election Day, Tues. Feb. 24, is just 7 days away!

7 DAYS until we take back our city from Rahm Emanuel and his corporate buddies.

7 easy WAYS to do it!

1. Phonebank daily at our offices located at 1043 W Madison St (Central Office) or 319 E 79th St (Southside Office). Shifts are 9am-12pm, 12pm-3pm, 3pm-6pm, and 6pm-9pm.
2. Get together 5-10 friends at your residence and hold a call party this weekend! Call Team Fioretti, we can help you get set up.
3. Canvass your neighborhood door to door ensuring that your neighbors know about Bob and his agenda.
4. Pass out campaign literature at local events, local CTA L stops, or the local grocery store. Spend an hour before or after work on your way!
5. Distribute literature at an Early Voting polling place and on Election Day at polling places.
6. Be a poll watcher on Election Day.
