  • Not a good alderman. Hope he doesn't get re-elected

  • Martwick? Can't they find someone else?

    Nick Sposato is a good Alderman and should be re-elected. We are fortunate to have him in our ward, especially when compared to the Aldermen of some of our neighboring wards. He is from the area and although not perfect, he always tries to do what is best for the constituents of his ward.

    I like NS as a person. However, I'm not a fan of retired public servants serving on elected seats. they'll vote on money issues protecting city/county/state pensions over basic common sense money issues protecting non union constituents every single time.

  • We dont get to choose between Sposato and Arena -- this is not about Arena. I ask again - what ha Sposato done for our ward? A genuine question, not a snarky insult

  • Marx -- I ask again, what has Sposato done for the ward? What has he used the alderman's discretionary income to do (we don't have voter imput on this, as some wards do). Will he make a statement condemning the Patio's booking of a noxious right wing troll? Has he helped make a decision about the status of the new school -- k-12 or middle school? Has he worked to bring businesses to Irving Park n. of Cicero? If so, or if he's done other good things, he deserves credit. Since he does not seem to do very well with communicating to constituents, I just don't know.

  • What has Sposato done? Well, he made all those nice white saw horses emblazoned with his name.

    I don't believe NS puts tiff funds to vote for certain infrastructure enhancement projects like other alderman do. I really wish he did and quite frankly, can't understand why he doesn't. Tons of crappy streets (most of Long not by portage), endless miles of unwalkable sidewalks, tons of curbs in terrible shape. And, as far as the sidewalk fix share program? Total half is thanks. I'll wait till a kid falls, breaks something and sues the city. NS is lax on basic infrastructure projects. Where does that "allocated" TIF money go, anyway?

  • Sposato is terrible. He has no clue of what's going on in the ward. Doesn't support business. We need an involved progressive Alderman like Arena who supports art, new business, progressive infrastructure: bike lanes, community beatification, safe pedestrian walkways.

  • Annette? Annette Sposato, is that you?
