Does Michelle Smith ever respond to anything?

I’ve emailed her twice about issues in my ward and received zero response. Even after I’ve followed up. Does anybody else have this experience? I thought this was the whole point of an alderman.

  • Nick, that's the same email address I've always used. There is always an immediate response but never follow up. I have also called several times and been told I would be called back and that never happened. I get that there's lots of big stuff going on in our ward and Michele may be busy with those, but her staff needs to be able to handle these ordinary day-to-day issues and has not.

  • She almost lost the last election by not being true to her ward of property owners. Won by only 35 votes and they were in senior centers. So don’t forget to canvas the many senior housing facilities we have in the ward. Also you can talk to her in person, She’ll smile and nod her head and that’s the most action you’ll get from your conversation. She’s as phony as they come.

New gifted/selective enrollment private school

There is a new gifted school that will be opening near the West Town area this fall, focused on the social, emotional and academic needs of gifted students in the top 2%. http://www.mage.education/. Please pass this on to anyone who suspects their child might fit that category or is high scoring on standardized tests such as PSAT or NWEA, that's looking for alternative options.

  • absolutely right, Robin. This is a selective enrollment private school. It is not affiliated with Chicago Public Schools. It is not a charter - charters are open enrollment.

  • All private schools are selective enrollment. Nothing new to see here.
