I had the honor to interview Michael Scoggins of Killer Seafood. Michael’s famous business was wiped of the map in the City of Mexico Beach, Florida. Michael has been giving his time day and night to the people attempting to put the City of Mexico Beach back on the map. He is making food for people attempting to put this disaster behind them. Hurricane Michael and the damage will not go away anytime soon. Please help Chicago. Be part of the #850strong folks. Michael is one of the chef’s at “Camp Happy Tummies”.
Please help. Chicago should make its presence known. I am not taking any donations on Chicago Clout. Go to Killer Seafood Facebook page to learn more.
In Chicago, the 14th Ward has many concerned citizens. The 14th Ward has an active IPO or an Independent Political Organization. On November 9, 2018, at Nightingale School in Chicago, the IPO made an amazing presentation of the health of the 14th ward. In the presentation, the group outlines all the necessary statistics that tell you what the makeup of the Ward is. Facts included the wealth, lack of wealth, the neighborhoods, the poverty levels. The facts also reflect the minority makeup, resident’s financial situation, and a number of residents on food stamps. I feel the reason for the fact giving secession was to relay the facts based on information provided by government agencies.
One of the most telling sources of information is from the Illinois Sunshine Organization. I hope the residents in the 14Th ward understand the massive campaign donations to Ed Burke are pay to play. All this money goes in Burk’s pocket and his wealthy pockets. The 14Th ward needs massive campaign infusions and Burke failed to deliver. Burke took almost every penny from organizations outside the ward. Burke took lots of money from President Trump and many Republican organizations tied into companies that do business with the City of Chicago.
Just like the Irish went to bat for the Irish many years ago, the Hispanic majority must come together to elect Hispanic leadership to reflect the ward. Burke is out and outstayed his welcome. Reach the 14th ward at firstname.lastname@example.org Just get the facts.

The City of Chicago needs young fresh talent to revitalize the neighborhoods of Chicago. One of the wards in need of leadership is Chicago’s 14th Ward. I was impressed by Jose’ Luis Torrez as he was very passionate about his ward. Jose’ has left no stone unturned, he has been knocking on every door and listening to everyone in the ward. Jose’ is also bi-lingual and very well educated. Jose’ has the pulse on the 14th ward.
Jose’ nearest rival is Jamie Guzmán. Jamie is also well spoken and bi-lingual. Jamie is smart and sophisticated. Jamie would be our second choice for the 14th Ward.
The 14th ward has been left in a state of disrepair by Ed Burke. Burke has used the Aldermanic position to reward his fellow alderman in different wards to increase power.
When I asked Alderman Austin why this was, she said, “That’s the way it is”. Burke has used his position to reward his family and friends. Burke has no clue any more and fails to deliver the goods. The residents in the 14Th Ward want someone that looks like them, talks like them, and fits into the community. Burke has left the 14th ward lacking the amenities the rich wealthy wards take for granted. What a shame, Burke kept all the cake for himself and his suburban elite friends. Burke could have planted businesses that do work with Chicago in his ward. Shame on Ed.
The City of Chicago and the State of Illinois is under “termination orders” from the J.B. Pritzker transition team to terminate the corrupt leadership at the Illinois Workers’ Compensation Commission in Chicago. Constant complaints since Rauner ordered nazi termination rights of injured union workers will begin in earnest soon. Many injured workers were expecting a fair day in court and instead the workers’ compensation lawyers association have been instrumental in destroying fair settlements that were supposed to benefit injured workers. The system is so corrupt the Federal Government is needed to step in to protect people with no rights. lawyers are making deals that benefit themselves for a quick dollar. Lori Lightfoot, Paul Vallas, Garry McCarthy, Willie Wilson, and Susan Mendoza promise an immediate change to Alderman Burke and the Corrupt Committee on Finance corruption. Alderman Burke and Mayor Rahm Emanuel are in Federal Court with their political lives on the line. Candidates like Jose Luis Torrez for 14th Ward Alderman are aware of the evil Alderman Edward Burke and his political goons fixing races.

Today was another great City of Chicago political day. Chicago Clout was invited to visit the Campaign Headquarters of Paul Vallas. Paul Vallas has been a public servant helping the City of Chicago for many years. During his service, there was no major drama, a real change of pace in Chicago.
Today, Paul Vallas was shooting a commercial for his Mayoral campaign. Many candidates would be under extreme pressure, but Paul kept everything under control. Imagine being in a room, with every word and action under scrutiny. Imagine every movement, every word under bright light and video cameras.
After the video shoot, Paul Vallas made time to introduce himself and explain some of his views on issues facing Chicago. Considering all the things going on, it made me comfortable he could multitask flawlessly. This goes well to his future leadership as Mayor because Chicago will need to oversee many problems.
I hope many Chicago residents, businesses, and city workers get off their rear ends and commit to Paul Vallas. Mr. Vallas was spot on the issues affecting Chicago City Workers. Please visit Paul Vallas’s headquarters at 621 South Plymouth Court just a little south of downtown. The headquarters are large clean and well kept. The new main phone number for the headquarters is 312.940.2847
Mr. Vallas committed to reach out to all of Chicago and you can call and schedule a meeting. What a great treat to have Paul Vallas speak to your group. As the campaign continues, I am sure the ability to meet and greet will be tougher. I was also impressed with Chris Kelly, Deputy Campaign Manager, Peter Ortolano, retired City of Chicago Hoisting Engineer. I am most proud Paul Vallas committed to Chicago before the current Mayor announced his departure.
City of Chicago Department of Water Management was rocked by allegations of overt racism at the North District Department of Water Management when Paul Hansen, son of former Alderman Hansen, sent racist, homophobic emails on Department email servers. Even though the Chicago Inspector General knew about these problems for over 10 years, nothing was done. The North District Water Department was subject to from page news for over 20 years by political journalists like Fran Spielman and Mark ‘retired?’ Brown and others. There is no excuse for the cover-up made by Mayor Rahm Emanuel all these years, but politics always trumped moral righteousness.
The North District Superintendent has always been run by political hacks (in my opinion) in the past. The job entailed shaking down workers for bribes, assigning easy work for the unions and the management, and provided expedited service requests for Alderman and the Mayor’s Office. Nothing in this position’s past supported qualified licensed and skilled qualities that would have made the department run better.
On October 16, 2018, Commissioner Randy Conner approved Andrew Bonaparte to take the position of North District Superintendent. According to many employees, Andrew has been one of the finest ADS in the history of the Department. Some local politicians are furious at the appointment. Many department employees refuse to take orders from a “fucking nigger”. The racism is already started with the “N” painted in the bathroom and quickly taken down. Pictures have been sent to Chicago City Council, the Mayor’s Office, and the Inspector General today. Despite the fact, Andrew is the first ever Superintendent to have all qualifying educational necessaries as required by the Chicago Plumbing Code, the racists are in full swing. Workers are demanding an investigation by Plumbers’ Local 130 and a public release of the racial graffiti in full cover-up mode.
When Randy Conner finally got things right, I must give him his props. It took courage to appoint Andrew Bonaparte to this position, but it is about time. Maybe the Department of Water Management can allow this black man to guide the Department back to its old glory.
Many Chicago Catholics are looking forward to Anne Burke to take over the Chicago Catholic ongoing problems she failed to fix last time she attempted. Again, Chicago Clout wants to tell Anne, stop looking the other way when your husband is shaking down vendors in Chicago for political donations. Anne, you stink as a justice, and you are in no place to tell anyone right from wrong. Anne is a justice because eddy made the call, the Chicago way. Pay to play, the only God the Burke’s pray to. I have a quick fix if you want to stop the Catholic Priests from molesting your children, stop going to Catholic Church and schools. You can’t change a sex pervert any more than you can change the Burkes. Talk in the mic Anne.
