Voters elect to repeal ban on rent control in Chicago

Members of the Pilsen Alliance and other community groups fighting to lift the ban on rent controls in Chicago celebrated long into the night at Simone’s Bar and Grill, 960 W. 18th St., on March 20.

At a community meeting in mid-March at the Little Village Library, 2311 S. Kedzie Ave., Sigcho and Malone both argued that the kind of gentrification that has been hitting communities like Pilsen often hurts homeowners and apartment landlords as well as lower- and middle-income renters.

SMALL BUSINESS OWNERS OF PILSEN: Meet Isauro...

SMALL BUSINESS OWNERS OF PILSEN: Meet Isauro Barrera, owner of one of Pilsen’s hidden gems, Barrera Shoe Repair. A fascinating part of my visit to Isauro’s shop happened while we took photos of him for this Small Business-Owner spotlight. We must’ve taken at least a dozen of him behind his counter; in back near his machines; standing in front of his shop— all while he maintained a focused expression. Then I asked him to take a photo sitting on top of his shoe-shine bench—where all his customers have sat for over two decades, and suddenly he couldn’t control his ear-to-ear grin. I asked what’s so funny, and he said, “I’ve never sat here.” Isauro left Mexico for Chicago at the age of 14 and instantly picked up odd-end jobs as a shoe shiner in the loop. He was particularly good at what he did, and caught the attention of professional shoe repairmen, (including an Italian, a Polish, and a Mexican), who all took him under their wings at different points of his life. He learned a different skillset from each of them, making him a skilled and versatile shoe repairman. But you wouldn’t know this from the humble shoe shop he opened 18 years ago, which I assure you shouldn’t be judged by its cover. Isauro’s shop doesn’t have a website, nor an FB page (yet), but what he lacks in marketing savvy, he makes up for in heart. “My goal is to teach the young folks the work I do here for two reasons: The first, the shoe repair industry is becoming a lost trade; secondly and more importantly, I think it’s important our youth have opportunities, no matter what their story is. Everyone deserves to learn a trade… and a second chance.” Learn more about Isauro’s services, which include luxury handbag repair; Air Jordan restoration; and shoe redesign, (applying an entirely different fabric to your shoes). 312.265.1078 - 1004 W. 18th St. #SmallBusinessOwners25thWard #25thWardChicago #PrideofPilsen #Community


  • Maybe Alderman Solis Office will actually assist this small business as many others in the 25th Ward to be compliant with federal, state, and local accessibility requirements. To many in the area a Non-Accessible business is missing the opportunity to succeed, and not being a good neighbor.

SMALL BUSINESS OWNERS OF PILSEN: Meet Edna J...

SMALL BUSINESS OWNERS OF PILSEN: Meet Edna J. Vazquez & Jeffery Lung, owners of Pilsen’s newest fitness studio, Vive Healthy Sport and Nutrition. Shortly after being re-introduced to Jeff and Edna by my daughter, (aside from learning Edna is from my same home town in Monterrey, Mexico,) I realized this husband & wife duo is likely the fittest couple in town. Between the two of them, they’ve run thousands of miles in races as accomplished ultra-marathoners. For those who don’t know what this means, (like me,)— it means they run 100 mile races. (Yikes!) Additionally, Jeff is a seasoned boxer and Edna has raced across the globe in Spain, China, Belgium, Venezuela, Chile, Africa and Antartica, before life brought them both to Pilsen. Today their mission is to build a strong community through physical activity and healthy lifestyle education. The three values that guide their holistic business model is Inspiration, Integrity & Innovation. “Our experience with ultra-marathons has served as a metaphor for life; the long distances, the ability to meditate and accomplish your dreams with optimism in spite of all that’s around you. We believe that with ultra-marathons, just like in business, the same principles: risk, perseverance, strength, resistance, hard work, concentration, dedication, faith and an unrelenting drive, are all required to move to the next mile and milestone.” Learn more about Jeff & Edna’s profound health philosophy and their group fitness & nutrition classes: www.vivehealthysport.com - 312.624.9947 965 W. 18th St. #SmallBusinessOwners25ward #PrideofPilsen #25thwardchicago #health #Fitness #community #MiPaisana #EsDeMonterrey

SMALL BUSINESS OWNERS OF PILSEN: Meet Elisa ...

SMALL BUSINESS OWNERS OF PILSEN: Meet Elisa Ochoa, owner and dentist at Pilsen Smiles, a practice located on 18th St. & Morgan. “There is a huge disparity in the Latino community in terms of health care. There’s often a lack of communication between the doctor and patient. I remember times in my childhood when I was called on to translate the English spoken by health care providers (bankers and other professionals) for my parents, who migrated to Pilsen from Mexico. As I got older, I knew I wanted to work more hands-on in these situations to make it easier for families like mine.” Elisa Ochoa designed a business model to serve her Latino Community. She works early morning and late evening hours to accommodate the schedules of her working patients; she provides a kids room for parents unable to secure child care during their visits; and offers access to payment plans for those in financial need. Proud of the community work Pilsen Smiles brings to 25th Ward. P.S. Help me congratulate Elisa on her pregnancy. It's a boy!
