The City of Chicago Department of Water Management has a great important duty, to provide safe drinking water. Part of the job is making sure all employees are trained to look out for dangerous situations that could leave Chicagoans with an un-protected water system. Today while investigating a home on the 1100 block of Menard, We found a contractor hooked up to a fire hydrant and dug up a front lawn to connect to a (B-box) Shut off valve in the parkway. I asked the contractor what they were doing and they said, “They took it upon themselves to locate a leak”. The contractor had no permission to work on this supply piping. The leak desk was not aware of their presence. When I took pictures, they quickly drove away. The card they gave me had the name William Doyle a Field Technician for ADS and IDEX companies, I recall this company with nice contracts and good connections with the Chicago Water Department. Last time I saw them, a worker was sleeping on the job. I informed the leak desk, the Inspector General, Plumbers Local 130 Union, and the Laborers 1092 Union. It really takes some balls (for lack of a better word) to touch a Municipal Water System with no permission and no Plumber’s License. Of course, if these guys get hooked up with the right goons from the Plumber’s Union, they can “get” a Plumber’s License. I also touched again with Robert Walsh of the Plumbers Union regarding the use of unlicensed Investigators, this practice must stop. It must stop and not by illegally giving Plumbing Licenses away to people that drop money or do politics. Protect your job Chicago Union Workers. Patrick McDonough
Mayor Daley covers Chicago’s Boys Town Statue with Condom
This picture was taken in the North Halsted area of Chicago. As many gay men get older they travel a little further north to the Andersonville (48th Ward) of Chicago. Gays have always been staunch supporters of the Democratic Party and Mayor Daley. Pardon the pun, but I think this statue is aimed more towards the man and not the women. I never gave it a second thought but Mayor Daley has failed to give enough jobs to gays in Chicago. I also think Mayor Daley should allow gays to marry in Chicago. I would like to put a condom on the bean in Chicago because it is ugly and the STD’s are a curse to both straights and gays. Maybe someday Chicago leaders like Ron Huberman and future Chicago Mayor Patrick Daley should hold hands together and demand equal rights for gays. Obama needs to address this issue soon. Mayor Daley needs to address the VD issue in Chicago, Catholic or not, it is time. Photo by Patrick McDonough.
Make sure you read about Chicago Clout contractors tied up with the Department of Water Management and O'Hare Airport. Mr. McDonough, you give money to both Illinois political parties? Why?
