    Bruce - plenty of comments on the facebook posts about the FmF suggest that you are wrong.

    Phil - Rogers Park businesses don't care about trump supporters not patronizing them, so no loss there.

We're pleased to report Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky will be our featured speaker at this tonight's monthly meeting of the 49th Ward Democratic Party.

Join us TONIGHT (Monday, February 19th), 7:00 p.m. at the Loyola Park Fieldhouse, 1230 W. Greenleaf (2nd floor).

With everything going on in Washington, there is no shortage of topics to cover. Jan plans to talk about the devastating Republican budget and her alternative Budget for All plan, the so-called "tax reform" plan recently passed by the Republican Congress, which Jan labels a "tax scam," and, of course, immigration reform and protection of the "Dreamers," whose cause Jan has championed for years.

Jan will also respond to questions from those assembled, so please feel free to bring your questions on topics of concern to you.

You will also find out at the meeting how you can help ensure that the Democratic Party nominates progressive Democrats who can effectively take on Bruce Rauner and the Republicans in this fall's election.

Property taxes = corruption

Confirmed, mine trippled since 95.
Unsustainable.

  • Phill "Obama wants to know everything"

    Chicago is structured like that, Democratic politicians love heavy taxation for home owners (The socialist concept has always been to tax the successful) then use that money to support people that always vote for the Democratic party. If they need more money, then they take it from drivers when they go to work, using money making machines like speed cameras.

  • Phill "Obama wants to know everything"

    I disagree with Bruce in one thing, though, Do not mute Michael Archangel. His comments are very entertaining and they will bring a smile to your face and make you have a happy day filled with happy feelings.

The 49th Ward Democratic Party Board of Directors last night finalized our list of endorsed candidates for the March 2018 Primary Election.

The Board voted last night to endorse Pat Quinn for Illinois Attorney General, Maria Pappas for Cook County Treasurer, Frederick "Fritz" Kaegi for County Assessor, and Martin Durkan for a six-year term as a Water Reclamation District Commissioner.

Each of these candidates received a majority of the votes at last Saturday's 49th Democratic Party endorsement session in which the members of the party voted on whom to support, but failed to receive a two-thirds membership vote necessary to earn them an automatic endorsement.

Under our rules, contests where no candidates receive a two-thirds vote are referred to the party's Board of Directors for further deliberation.

Quinn, Pappas, Kaegi and Durkan join an all-star slate of progressive Democrats led by our endorsed candidate for Governor, Daniel Biss.

Illinois residents have few choices for relief besides dangerous opiates

Emailed from Kelly Cassidy,

Illinois residents are suffering with chronic pain conditions and have few choices for relief besides dangerous opiates.

Gov. Rauner has called medical cannabis a "dangerous drug". He simply doesn't get it: when people in pain can't use cannabis, they often have to turn to addictive opiates. He wants to waste your tax dollars appealing a court order requiring that chronic pain becomes a qualifying condition.

With your help, we can get his attention and make him understand that this is a huge mistake. Can you please share this

Biss wins big at 49th Ward Democratic Party endorsement session

Illinois Gubernatorial candidate Daniel Biss emerged as the big winner at Saturday's 49th Ward Democratic Party endorsement session. Biss garnered more than two-thirds of the membership vote, which entitles him to an automatic endorsement.

Also winning the progressive Democratic organization's nod, were State Rep. Kelly Cassidy, who received the unanimous backing of the organization's members, Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle, County Commissioners Larry Suffredin and Bridget Gainer, County Sheriff Tom Dart, County Clerk candidate Karen Yarbrough, and Water Reclamation...

Illinois Gubernatorial candidate Daniel Biss emerged as the big winner at Saturday's 49th Ward Democratic Party endorsement session. Biss garnered more than two-thirds of the membership vote, which entitles him to an automatic endorsement.

Also winning the progressive Democratic organization's nod, were State Rep. Kelly Cassidy, who received the unanimous backing of the organization's members, Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle, County Commissioners Larry Suffredin and Bridget Gainer, County Sheriff Tom Dart, County Clerk candidate Karen Yarbrough, and Water Reclamation District Commissioner incumbents Debra Shore and Kari Steele and candidates Kimberly DuBuclet and Cameron Davis.

None of the candidates for Illinois Attorney General, Cook County Treasurer or County Assessor received the two-thirds vote required for an automatic endorsement. Water Reclamation District Commissioner incumbent Martin Durkan also fell short of a two-thirds vote. Pursuant to the party's bylaws, those races were referred to the organization's Board of Directors for further consideration.

Unlike the vast majority of Chicago ward organizations, the final endorsement decisions of the 49th Ward Democratic Party are made by the volunteer members of the organization, not the ward committeeman. The members gather in an open meeting, hear from the candidates and cast their vote by secret ballot. Committeeman Joe Moore agrees to abide by the results of the vote.

    We had a great turnout Saturday for a marathon session of hearing from and questioning the candidates in the March Democratic primary. Billed as a 4-hour session in advance, it lasted a bit more than 6 hours, after which the ballots had to be counted.

    Thanks for sticking it out until the very end, Helen!

Where are the good job at in Rogers Park?

Im not going to lie to you guys I want a nice job in my community. I mean sometimes I dont mind the travel from work and back, it kind of eases my mind, but I would love it better if there were more jobs that pay well here in Rogers Park.

Where are the job opportunities? 😓

  • robin in WRP I support a 28th Amendment 4Free & Fair Elections!
  • Is indeed job really legitimate

  • robin in WRP I support a 28th Amendment 4Free & Fair Elections!

    Indeed aggregates positions from other websites, along with positions posted by companies directly to Indeed. You can also try simplyhired.com, but their search function is less targeted. Many smaller businesses use craigslist.org. Nonprofits often use Idealist. Some companies only post positions on their websites; these positions are often picked up by Indeed and Simply Hired, but not always.

    You need to treat finding a job as a job.

    Good luck!
