The order is complete for the 48Th Ward Aldermanic Candidate list. I was happy to find a total of five candidates. In order of registration these are the following names, Patrick McDonough, Harry Osterman, Steven Cheraska, Jose E. Arteaga, and Philip Bernstein. I was in line at about 4 something and had ticket number 33 the first day of filing petitions. Remember that could change on December 1, 2010. I admit I was waiting for Philip to get on the ballot and I saw his name the last day, what a relief. Philip is going to improve the quality of the debates in the wards. Today, I called Philip and re-invited him over to my place and film a half an hour so people can get to know him better. Philip accepted. Philip is going to ask Michael Volpe again to host. Michael Volpe asked Harry, but Harry has intermediaries and will not return phone calls. I also want to invite Steven and Jose over for a free photo shoot and a half hour video to assist their campaign. The 48Th ward needs change and some debate on the issues a.s.a.p. I had a wonderful one plus hour at Columbia College and videotaped the event. I will post it soon. I spoke to the class on issues facing the City of Chicago and the 48Th Ward. I hope a stooge from the 48Th insiders do not challenge the candidates again, this is an insult to all of us. Let the debates begin, Patrick McDonough.
