David McDonough visits Frosty the Snowman

David McDonough and Frosty the Snowman.jpg
My son David McDonough was walking on the lake today and his old buddy and pal Frosty the Snowman posed for a picture. It was very foggy up north and I was able to take some spectacular pictures. I enjoy time with my children. In a few short months, Frosty with be near to help keep “Deep Water” floating. I really enjoy Wisconsin in the winter. Could someone please tell me when Moy’s Chinese Restaurant will be finished? I hope everyone has a Happy Holiday, Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year. 2008 should be a splendid year.

McDonough Family Des Plaines.jpg
Please enjoy the McDonough Family of Des Plaines Illinois shoveling their walk. Fox News Chicago covered the family and asked them about the proposed new ordinance demanding Des Plaines Residences to keep their walks clear or pay a $750.00 fine. Ian McDonough is against this ordinance.

Chicago Clout and Patrick Daley Update

The heat is on Patrick Daley big time. The Chicago Department of Water Management Vactors are out rusting and Metropolitan Sanitary Services are taking Chicago City Workers jobs and pensions. The Feds are on this one big time, I will write more on this issue in three weeks. Mayor Daley, will you go to jail for your son? More on some contracts soon. Patrick McDonough.

Chicago Department of Water Management in Hot Water

Chicago Department of Water Management Fire 2.jpg
3440 North Osage was red hot due to the actions of Foreman John Kolomay. John Kolomay never gets out of his truck to supervise his crew. John is usually in in the crew cab smoking cigarettes and drinking Dunkin Donuts Coffee. John loves coffee and cigarettes. I hope John will enlighten us all about his buddy and pal Tony Laurino and the North District Water Department politics soon. A laborer was refilling a pump with gas, the pump was running. The pump pushed the gas towards two parked cars and totaled them. John knows quite a bit about the Chicago Water Department politics and Donald Tomszak, I guess they will call this an accident. The IDOL and the Chicago Inspector General has been alerted. This is a Chicago Clout Exclusive, thanks for covering Channel 2 News. click here : http://cbs2chicago.com/local/water.main.break.2.619058.html Photo by Patrick McDonough.

Good Grief John Kolomay and Robert Mrofcza

Chicago Water Management Fire 1.jpg
Today at about 12:20 p.m., the Chicago Department of Water Management started two parked cars on fire. I am demanding to know why a dump truck was ordered with shoring? John Kolomay does not use shoring, ever. Also, I am demanding to know why John Kolomay, the foreman on the crew did not make sure his crew was protected with fire extinguishers. This will be a (taxing problem) for John Kolomay in three weeks. Photo by Patrick McDonough

Merry Christmas Chicagoland from Chicago Clout and Guitar Hero 3

Wii Guitar Hero 3 Chicago Clout.jpg
I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year 2007. I got one of the first Wii systems this summer and thought it was very nice, I enjoyed the tennis and bowling. This Christmas, Sean McDonough my famous brother bought my kids the Wii Guitar Hero 3 “Legends of Rock”. I asked the kids if I could try the game and they set me up with “Lars”, a hefty guitarist. This Guitar Hero is the equal of giving the Grand-kids a drum set, a pellet gun or something bound to drive the parents insane. By dinner, I wanted to be a guitar hero and smash the guitar on stage so I would not lose my hearing. It seems like a fun game and the kids will play all day if you let them. I hope your Holiday is full of cheer. Pray for Honest Government next year. Photo by Patrick McDonough.

Chicago Clout Official Audit Results Over TWO MILLION HITS

Chicago Clout, a website started out of frustration and an unfair termination from the City of Chicago, is on target for two million hits this year. TWO MILLION HITS!!! My first article was about Mark Brown, a famous Chicago Sun-Times Columnist. However, the site crashed and some of the original articles were not put back in proper order. I forwarded the formal audit to Mark Brown so he could review the results. Chicago Clout has been imitated and copied by many Chicago Newspapers hoping to capitalize on this website. Chicago Clout has been helped mostly by the Avila Family, the McDonough Family, Tony Joyce, Can-TV, Chicago City Workers, Mark Brown, Fran Spielman, Laurie Cohen, Todd Lighty, Gary Washburn, Ben Jarovsky, The Loevy Family, Carleen Channel 7 news, Fox News, Victor Crown, Dave Savini, Phil Hayes and Channel 2 News, Alderman Ed Smith, Alderman Moore, Amy Le, Angie Channel 5 Chicago, Ivan Tomic, J Terrence Brunner, Charles Walker, Dermot Connolly, Bill "Doc" Walls….. I have so many people to thank, I will need to make a better list when I have more time. This site has never taken a single penny of money from anyone, I have paid for this to help others. This site is for Chicago City Workers. Wait I know who else helped, look for your name soon, Patrick McDonough.

Mayor Daley's 11th Ward Subcontractor Sleeping on Job 12/20/2007

Mayor Daley's Subcontractors sleeping.jpg
On a prior post dated January 25, 2007, I outlined some inside contract deals at the Chicago Department of Water Management. I showed how Chicago, under the Daley Machine allows companies to change hands as the heat approaches. The post was “Chicago Water Management Contractor Update”. Today, I passed a company van with a juicy contract with the Chicago Department of Water Management, a contract that takes work away from Chicago Citizens with Union benefits. The man in the van had no idea I was taking pictures of him. I notified 311 and they told me someone from the Chicago Department of Water Management will contact me, they never did. I called the Chicago Inspector General and reported this incident. I bet this will be covered up. This is part of an 11th Ward Tire Company.
