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.

    There aren't many meals more nostalgic than a bowl of cereal. Whether you prefer the first still crunchy bite or slurping down the leftover sugary milk, a meal of Fruity Pebbles, Cap'n Crunch or (in the healthier families) Cheerios brings back memories of Saturday morning cartoons and lazy Sundays without a care in the world.

Preschoolers at Goddard Schools located in and around Chicago, IL showed off their projects and experiments at the School’s Science Fair.

The children explored STEAM learning (science, technology, art, and math) as they participated in science experiments and created projects. Some of the projects included demonstrating how clouds produce rain, soaking pennies in different liquids to see which one cleans the coins the quickest and observing how apples aged and reacted to various solutions.

The Science Fair encourages children’s natural curiosity in STEAM learning by allowing them to explore topics that they are interested in.

“The Science Fair is an excellent way for children and parents alike to experience first-hand a bit of our play-based learning at The Goddard School,” said David Raye, owner of The Goddard School located in Third Lake, IL. “STEAM learning teaches children to collaborate, communicate, be creative and think critically, which are 21st century skills that are necessary skills no matter what career path the children choose later on in life.”
