  • And to top things off not one member of the NRA is ever involved in this type of insanity. So good people of Chicago - STOP BLAMING GUNS.

    If you want lay blame for America's blighted cities and crime problem look no further than Bill Clinton's signature on the NAFTA agreement. No jobs equals more crime, it's as simple as that.

  • Guns are not the problem. Gun laws are the problem. Stricter and tighter gun control is what America need.

A Letter from George Dear 12th Ward Family, ...

A Letter from George Dear 12th Ward Family, It has been an incredible summer in the 12th Ward. We have come together as a community to celebrate music, art, our environment and more. Even though July is normally a very hot month we still have more celebrations. I'm working side by side with the Chicago Police Department and C.A.P.S. to create events in our parks to deter crime. As the saying goes, an active park is a safe park. I have a special message on immigration. As an immigrant I understand the complexities of a judicial system that wants to invite new Americans from across the world yet political obstacles prevent this. I abhor the separation of families at the border and have created a resolution to put pressure on those that are standing idly by. I personally invite you to call or come to my office to speak with staff regarding any questions you may have on immigration. We will keep our ward residents safe-citizen or not. We are all Americans. I have worked hard to create local employment through many years of negotiating and cleaning up this ward. There are local jobs flourishing and I call on all of you to heed the call to work right here in your home Ward. Below are several new local businesses hiring. Watch for updates as even more businesses open their doors in the 12th Ward. My office is your office, so please stop in on Monday for Ward Night until 6 PM or make a courtesy call. I’m here to serve you. 12th Ward Service Office 3476 S. Archer, 773-523-8250.
