    Garcia was viewed as being an obstructionist in opposing the expansion of UIC as well as all the local jobs and contracts that came with it. Garcia rejected all that to prevent "gentrification". It was a bad decision and the voters didn't agree with him. Garcia got dumped and fell out of politics for a full ten years. Eventually he got on the county board working for Toni Preckwinkle. But for what it's worth, Preckwinkle, who knows Garcia better than anyone else at this point, has refused to endorse him. What does she know about him that she's not saying? Preckwinkle is being very coy about withholding her endorsement.

  • pattymelt is mostly in charge

    @Avast: "He got voted out after a single term in the state senate. Guess the constituents weren't too impressed."

    That is incorrect, he was elected to two terms, in 1992 and in 1996:

    He lost in 1998 to a guy with a lesser 'stache:

How much do you tip movers?

What's the going rate for tipping movers?

  • I recently used Schlep (www.schlep.it) to move an armoire; they were fantastic and the cost was $80, so I tipped $10 for each Schlepper.

  • I have always ordered lunch for the crew and tipped based on their individual performance( I have moved 3 times in 15 years) the median tip being $30.00.
    Hope this helps!

Permit question

We are in the process of buying a new duplex in Lake View (yay!) and once everything is finalized will need/want to do some work on the unit including updating the kitchen and maybe some work on the above garage deck. I know a lot of the work will require city permits. Does anyone have advice on navigating those waters? We've only rented till now so I have no idea what we are getting into. Also any suggestions for designers and/or contractors is greatly appreciated! TIA!!!

    Claire,
    Most if not all architects are familiar with the permit process in Chicago and can give you information about it. We deal with permits all the time. The city also has information on their website here: https://www.cityofchicago.org/city/en/depts/bldgs/supp_info/a_guide_to_gettingstartedapermitoverview.html

    Claire,

    A brief summary of what requires a permit in Chicago, nearly everything except interior finish work, i.e. adding tile back splash, replacing drywall, etc... Depending on what you are doing for the kitchen you may or may not need a permit. If it requires plumbing work, electrical work, the moving, demolition or adding new walls, it will need a permit.

    For the garage deck, it also depends on what you are doing. If you are just replacing boards, you might not need a permit, but replacing the entire structure or adding a deck will definitely need a permit.

    The city does have an "easy permit" process for minor work that does not require architectural drawings. Supposedly they issue a permit the same day, compared to a few weeks to months with the standard permit application route.

    I am an architect with my own practice. Feel free to call me at 312.945.6208 and I can discuss this further.

    Cheers,

    When we replaced our roof and roof deck, the contractor handled the permitting process. However, we did have them pay an expediter so we didn't wait forever for the permit.

  • d3 NOH

    The building department in this city is so corrupt it's amazing. Pay an expeditor or it's 3+ months. Total corruption, still continuing under Rahm.
