The Chicago Inspector General has really let everyone down in Chicago due to Mayor Lori Lightfoot stopping criminal and administrative investigations of clout-heavy campaign contributors. Lori has demanded low amounts of money so she would not have to divulge the identity of contributors. Many people helping with Lori’s campaign have received targeted Federal money for Covid-19 relief. Almost every person getting this money is black and from a single-parent household.
Lori has demanded these ladies to work her campaign in a phone call frenzy of current Chicago City employees. It was brought to my attention Mayor Lori Lightfoot has demanded all the current phone numbers from every department commissioner. I will release a call phone soon from Mayor Lightfoot’s racist River North campaign headquarters.
The Inspector General has sat on an employee at the Office of Emergency Management or Office of Emergency Management and Communications. The Department is not communicating the need for its employees to live inside the boundaries of Chicago. Allegedly Ulises Cardenas, a foreman of electrical mechanics. He oversees employees that repair and maintain Police and Fire radio and computer communications. Many pictures show he is at the City of Evergreen Park, just outside of Chicago. He is allegedly not far from Mount Greenwood. He is close to Duffy Park after work on many days. I know many phone calls have been made to the Chicago Inspector General. I hope Mayor Lori Lightfoot allows all City workers, including the Chicago Police and Fire Department also, to live away from the crime in Chicago. I called Mr. Cardenas’s boss, and he seems to be looking the other way.
This is part one of the story.
I would like to remember my friend John Cuneo of Norwood Park Chicago. John suffered with a unknown illness for about three years. John was a writer and Journalist. John ended up at WGN studios. John was at a much higher level of professional style in the trade. Not all of us want to spend the time to achieve a level in the business when a solid gut punch will serve the same purpose.
John was one of the best drummers I have ever witnessed. I am a professionally trained classical bass player. John’s level or artistry was witnessed by me at the Bahry home in Park Ridge, the Cuneo home in Norwood Park as a young guy. John would play with Scott Bahry an awesome keyboardist and Chuck Kawal one of the finest guitarists I ever met. Listening to these guys was a lifetime memory. Since I was a sheet music reader, I could never rock with them. Sad.
Not long ago, I visited John and he was short on time because he was taking care of his mom. What a saint. I also remember I would joke play air drums to have John play an unneeded fill during one of his rehearsals; he would make it sound like it belonged in the song. I remember Scott would look up like “why did John add that”. John was one of the most amazing persons I ever met. You do not forget people like John.
I find it spooky I just went into the Sun-Times on a whim and found his obit. WTF is that. Again, that guy could play drums with a level of unmatched artistry.
Joe Ferguson left the Chicago Office of the Inspector General with no self-respect. What an asshat. For 12 years Joe chased political headlines to make his nasty nose in the newspapers. There is no doubt that piece of shit, used his position to gain revenge against his enemies. The Chicago Inspector General was so shitty, even a failure like Lightfoot had to tank that failure. Funny how Joe Ferguson went crying to Fran Spielman after he was let go to save face. Joe went to Axelrod which shows he is a beggar, a showoff, or a plain fool. Joe failed to conclude significant changes for the long-term health of Chicago. His hands were tied, and he claimed a check, Chicago style.
Now Joe Ferguson wants to find another check after claiming at least two government pensions. Joe’s interview told was a failure he was if you understand inside politics. Did Joe stop Alderman Burke? No. Did Joe stop the unfair discipline that every city worker is subject? No. Joe failed to investigate hundreds of complaints lodged by city workers trying to make Chicago better. Joe refused to interview the complainant and thought so highly of his skills, that he cherry-picked cases he could easily win. Joe also picked investigations to keep college kids and others on the payroll. Nice waste of money.
No past or current Chicago Inspector General will ever be in the same class as David Hoffman. David is the best of the best.
The new clown in charge of the O.I. G. is Deborah Witzburg. Nothing will change under her unless a retired Federal Judge oversees the intake complaints. Just because she looks like Karl Malden does not mean she will get results. One of the O.I.G.’s most important tasks is to stop political hiring. My understanding of powerful Jewish interest went to bat for Deborah. So, Deborah is a political hire? So, Deborah will stop disciple issues in the Police Department, and hiring problems city-wide when she used clout to get her job? Deborah needs to investigate her former boss before she looks anywhere else. But she will not. Nothing in Chicago changes.
Lori has another puppet, again.
Most City of Chicago Department of Water Management employees are hardworking, hard-drinking, heavy eating, and crazy after years of working in an insane environment. The Department of Water Management breeds racism and hatred. We were hoping Andrea could change this environment. Anyone living in Chicago knows that racism is part of the culture and upbringing. If you think Cheng and Leroy Lightfoot is going to repair Chicago by providing phony minority contracts, you are not very bright. There are powerful interests that control the city; the power brokers want the mob cut, the politicians cut, and the criminals cut.
Suspect promotions are causing much trouble for multidecade employees.
The City of Chicago Department of Water Management is attempting to install water mains on significant streets. In theory, the pipe jobs should save taxpayers lots of money. Many knowledged workers are retiring, and the replacements are subpar. The Department of Water Management is not ordering basic supplies to make the pipe jobs competitive. Many pipe jobs are at a standstill while waiting for water main products like megalugs, pipe, transition joints, fittings, and backfill. Millions of wasted union workers are at a standstill.
The DOWM, under the direction of Cheng,Cheeks, and Matt Quinn must be held responsible for mismanagement and poor planning. While the City workers do nothing, the private contractors are loaded with supplies and doing the job. Rumors are the contracted suppliers are attempting to get a surcharge due to President Joe Biden’s economy.
We must also look closer into promoting Tony Falada and A’Donna Murry to big positions at the Chicago Water Department.
Tony was a low-ranking water plant operator in the burbs and received massive promotions in the department. Tony is now the Superintendent of Construction and Maintenance for a billion-dollar operation. More on this later. It calls into question the politics that still drive Chicago Water. Also, A’Donna Murray, with little leadership skills, was promoted to General Superintendent. What is in Chicago water? I see no common sense.
Lori Lightfoot was to return as Mayor again, but she is fucking up Chicago at a record rate. We are also going into Lightfoot’s Joliet deal very soon, reelection is nearing, and the guns are drawn.
The Chicago Inspector General went after Andrew Szorc a member of a famous political family. Andrew was a low-paid Ward Superintendent from the D’Amico and the Laurino-controlled 39th Ward.
Let’s get some history and the amateurs did not figure out what is really going on. Allegedly the Szorc family is part of the 32nd ward “Punching Polacks”. Szorz and his family have lived great off the patronage provided by Dan Rostenkowski. Gabinski and Matlak were instrumental in providing jobs to the “Punching Polacks” that fought ward by ward for every vote. I saw these pols working these voting stations, rude and disrespectful to every person walking in.
Allegedly two more Szorc (s) are at the Department of Water Management and have got up the ladder. If you really think clout is dead in Chicago, you are stupid. Rumors these goons worked had for Don Tomczak at the Department of Water Management. I still laugh when I see sewer workers as General Superintendents over the Water Department. Rahm Emanuel moved this family up the chain. Working for Rahm always paid well. The current Commissioner at the Department of Water Management Andrea Cheng P.E. still controls patronage but concentrates her efforts on no-bid contracts. Andrea is covered by Mayor Lori Lightfoot, the worst mayor in Chicago history.
Allegedly the Szorc family parents also made it on the city payroll. The street fighters always got rewarded with jobs for their family. My problem is the transition from vote theft to a position of public service.
Who are the “Punching Polacks” you ask? Many Polish immigrants worked shit jobs such as bathroom attendants, laborers to Italian bricklayers in Chicago. At night they would go to bars, get in fights, and do it all over. It was a right of passage every immigrant would go through when they entered the big city. According to many insiders at the Jardine Plant, Robert Szorc is going to leave his position soon as General Superintendent of the North District because of the way his brother was treated.
I would like to ask John D’Amico and Marge Laurino how Drew Szorc got from the 32nd ward to the 39th ward. Amazing. I understand Richard Szorc will be leaving soon, the Department of Water Management will be worse off without him He worked hard and gave honest days work for his pay. I would watch him work that white pickup truck in front of Saint Juliana and every street in Chicago.
When the Chicago Office of the Inspector General was sent to do a hit piece on Andrew, he already was a marked man from something else. What are Richard’s ties to Julie Hernandez-Tomin then and now? Allegedly Mike Szorc took the General Foreman of Laborers exam at the Department of Water Management position. Amazing. Allegedly Szorc father went from laborer to a Department of Water Management Plumber Inspector and his mother was a sewer clerk. I would really like to think Andrew was not a Jew Hater, but a 32nd ward tough in a new world order. The new ways are really dirty and in your face, but legal. https://www.israellycool.com/2022/05/15/antisemitic-dumbass-of-the-day-andrew-szorc-retired-chicago-ward-superintendent
