Campaign Signs - no permission.

So I thought to put a campaign sign on someone's property you had to have their permission? Did this change? We came home from a walk the other day and there was an OMAR AQUINO sign on our neighbors lawn. Our neighbors do not live in the house and it is currently boarded up but the house is far from abandoned. I asked them if they gave permission for the sign and they said no. So my question to the...

So I thought to put a campaign sign on someone's property you had to have their permission? Did this change? We came home from a walk the other day and there was an OMAR AQUINO sign on our neighbors lawn. Our neighbors do not live in the house and it is currently boarded up but the house is far from abandoned. I asked them if they gave permission for the sign and they said no. So my question to the Aquino campaign is why would I vote for you if you cannot even follow simple campaign rules? I you'd like to get your message out to my neighbors contact me directly (I head up our block club) and we can set up a meeting. Another candidate has already reached out in this way. I don't know if I personally will vote for him yet but I do know that I appreciate that he would rather talk with myself and my community than slapping a sign where he thinks no one will care.

    Good Afternoon neighbors! Thank you for bringing this to our attention. I am proud to say that my great volunteers only put up signs when they receive explicit permission from a resident or business owner. If one of our volunteers has placed a yard sign in an inappropriate place, please reach out to our campaign office at (773) 844-9481. We will remove the sign immediately.

    Alonso, Chris and Omar are all smart guys and I have the utmost respect for all three. I do believe I am the best candidate and I look forward to discussing why at the debate on February 5th. The 36th Ward deserves more than finger pointing and name calling though. Lets make sure that yard signs are placed appropriately, but after that can we please discuss issues that are relevant to our neighbors. Thank You!

    Finger pointing? Hmmm...I see this as an issue...a big one in fact, because if you (general term for candidate) can not follow simple rules during a campaign how can I trust you to listen to and take care of my needs once in office? I'm happy to boast that our...

    Finger pointing? Hmmm...I see this as an issue...a big one in fact, because if you (general term for candidate) can not follow simple rules during a campaign how can I trust you to listen to and take care of my needs once in office? I'm happy to boast that our block is an active community that has worked WITH our current Alderman (Tim Cullerton) to find solutions for problems from cleaning up a vacant house and aiding the city in evicting gangbangers from rentals in the area. These solutions have benefitted not only our block but the community as a whole.

    Speaking for my house, we are looking for an Alderman who takes our concerns, no matter the severity, seriously and is willing to work with us to find solutions instead of trivializing them.

    Gilbert, I appreciate that you took the time to write here today and I look forward to hearing why you feel you are the best candidate. Your campaign manager has been in touch with me and we are trying to set up date and time for you to address our block club as well as Chris and Alonso.

Understand perfectly

Yes, there are certain snippy people that need to be
relieved of their duties for awhile….they are rude
and much could be said, but the truth of who they are
would start "a fire". It is enough that I can determine
and avoid by calling in again and speaking to someone
else. I do that with all jaded first responders in any field.
