Dominic Longo Frank Avila Patrick McDonough

Doninic Longo Frank Avila Patrick McDonough.jpg
Dominic Longo made the All-Star list of Chicago Clout. Mayor Daley and Tim Degnan made a major mistake to remove this guy from power. Dominic Longo with his full head of hair and his Italian good looks is one of the most powerful political movers and shakers in Chicago Politics. Who are the Feds visiting as we speak? Who did the Feds visit last week? More work for Chicago top lawyers like Frank Avila. Longo is laughing now, don't you think? More to look at while the shredding is looked into.

Chicago Troubled Water Department Promotions

Chicago Water Management Bell.jpg
Brian Murphy got a promotion to a higher position in Mayor Daley's scandal ridden Administration. The new Commissioner of the Chicago Department of Water Management is John F. Spatz. Spatz is 19th ward native. I think Mayor Daley is circling the wagons and ducking into the closet. Please enjoy a picture of the bell at the entrance of the Jardine water plant adminstrative offices.

Frank Coconate's Children.jpg
June 20, 2006. Mark Brown of the Chicago Sun-Times did an article today that sure sparked my interest. Dominic Longo has proved to everyone his political worth until Daley's Administration started to put the squeeze on the alderman. Frank Coconate is having a fund raiser so please plan to attend. In the forefront is Frank's two daughters and his son.

Happy Father's Day 2006

Happy Father's Day 2.jpg
Dear Friends, I hope all of you spent time with your parents and your children. Today as in many Father's Day is a day we must never forget could be the last year with your parents. Many people I work with at the City of Chicago, has a parent that is sick, or very ill. I hope you spend as much time as you can, visiting, laughing, and loving. This year we are planning the Sixth Annual "Boat and Brat". This year will be different as we also plan a fund raiser for some fallen comrades that have lost their jobs with the Chicago Department of Water Management. Today is also a day to remember what is important, and it is not you. God Bless. Photo of "Deep Water" by Patrick McDonough

Burge Report Rally June 16, 2006

Burge Report Rally.jpg
The Cook County Criminal Courts Administration had one heck of a Rally on June 16, 2006. Most of Chicago's media outlets were on hand. Also Wallace "Gator" Bradley, Frank Avila, an Attorney for Aaron Patterson. Mayor Daley's name got dragged into this nightmare as he might have covered up this up as a States Attorney. Police torture, public corruption, and malfeasance. Chicago's other "Green side". Photo by Patrick McDonough

Chicago Highway Marking Contractors

Chicago Lane Marking Contractors.jpg
When the City of Chicago has the lines for the lanes painted in the main streets and side streets they hire a company located in South Elgin. ( Marking Specialists) Call 1-847-608-6614 for a company that takes work from Chicago City Workers. The Workers from this company do not need to live in Chicago, do not need drug testing, do not have GPS on their trucks, and do not have to pay Mayor Daley's huge taxes. These workers are so lucky as they do no need to put up with the scandals and corruption the Daley's made this city famous for. Location of photo: in front of the City of Chicago Central District Yard, Ashland and 39th street. Looks like privatization to me!! And you vote this administration in office?

Chicago Clout Mission Statement.

Some people employed by the City of Chicago have over time had difficulties while performing their duties. Needless to say, many people have been passed over for promotions and opportunities, for employment, for advancement, and for job satisfaction. A large amount of employees of the City of Chicago have given up going through the process of trying to make change, due to revenge and retaliation. Frankly, many City of Chicago employees feel shame and are very scared to come forward. In evidence is numerous cases of excessive drinking, drug use, and violence. I remember when my Father and Grandfather were employed by Chicago, and the respect and glamour the job used to own has lost it shine and prestige. Some Chicago Employees wish to turn back time and have as our war cry, "Take out the politics out, and put back the pride back in". Please continue to call me and I will make sure your concerns are directed to the correct parties and I will never discuss anything you want to talk about.

Sorich Trial/ Mara Georges/ Jennifer Hoyle

Jennifer Hoyle.jpg
On June 13, 2006, I was at the Sorich Trial. Durkin made mention to Jennifer Hoyle that is pictured above. Most of Chicago Media Superstars were on hand like Mark Brown, John Kass, and a great supporting staff from both Chicago Newspapers. Ms. Hoyle was joking during most of the testimony with numerous City Attorneys. Nice way to spend taxpayer money. Mara gave some answers that defied logic and drew laughter. Sad. Patrick Fitzgerald showed up just prior to Mara and sat down for a short few minutes until a check was handed to him. Earlier my daughter testified on behalf of the State of Illinois's Secretary of State regarding alleged fraud with a drivers instruction school. Honesty runs in the family.

Presiding Judge Ronald C. Riley

Judge Ronald C. Riley.jpg
Located in the Sixth Municipal District State of Illinois Circuit Court of Cook County 16501 South Kidzie Parkway Markham, Illinois 60428 is the home to Presiding Judge Ronald C. Riley. At the awards for community service, I met Judge Riley and found out he is the boss to Judge Martian E. McDonough, my godfather and my dad's brother. Judge Riley was like a Political magnet to aspiring candidates for office. I found him to be very reserved and a man of the gentry. I give Judge Ronald C. Riley a very high clout rating. Also pictured is Brigid and Sarah McDonough. Photo by Patrick McDonough.

Chicago JC DeCaux Bus Shelters Union Organizing

JC Decaux.jpg
JC DeCaux has a contract that over twenty years is going to add $307,500,000.00 in new revenue to the City of Chicago. The contract allows two extensions of five years each. Some workers want you to know they are fighting for a union contract. They are non-union and want to join the Chicago teamster's union. My god another non union company with a multi-million dollar deal working on Chicago Public Streets. And Chicago Unions give Mayor Daley money. What happen to the prevailing wage in Chicago. Is this another John Daley Hired Truck Scandal and low wage scab deal?. Let us look into this deal. Photo by Patrick McDonough.

Reverend Jesse Jackson Sr. Picture

Rev. Jesse Jackson.jpg
One of my favorite subjects for a great picture is Jesse Jackson Sr. The man dresses just as well as Alderman Burke. Jesse Jackson Sr. was a staple at union rallies as I was growing up. If the unions wanted press they made sure Rev. Jackson gave one of his speeches. This picture was taken in Rev. Jackson's personal office on April 16, 2005. I spoke about my termination from the City of Chicago. I also discussed the Rainbow Coalition. I was with my daughter Brigid. Jesse Jackson is a very kind person with hands that are very, very big. Reverend Jesse Jackson's clout rating: Mega Clout in wait. Photo by Patrick McDonough.

Tom Roeser WLS Radio 890 Chicago

Tom Roeser.jpg On November 27, 2005, I had the pleasure of talking to a very brilliant person that backs up what he says away from the spotlight. I also met Tom Roeser's lovely wife. For years, I saw Tom at church as did many other people as he is a devote religious person. His son-in-law was a friend of mine when I was a young child. Tom Roeser' Show airs Sunday nights at 8:00 p.m. on WLS Talk Radio A.M. in Chicago. The show is called "Political Shootout". Many in Chicago listen to a hour of sometimes rough and tumble political sparing. And if you call in you might get on the air! Tom Roeser web site is www.tomroeser.com Photo by Patrick McDonough.
