Michael Volpe got many of the facts correct on Hired Truck Scandal. I hope that he digs into this story deeper. If you want to learn more insider facts make sure you read this article. His blog is called Thee Provocateur. I met Michael last night, my first night out in years. ckick here: http://theeprovocateur.blogspot.com/2009/08/deconstructing-hired-truck-scandal.html On another note, was happy to see Mick Dumke fighting with Alderman Stone. Stone will need to start a fight with a new Inspector General. Last night, I also met Brad Flora of the The Windy Citizen, he is a nice person (a cool dude), go to his website here: http://www.windycitizen.com/ they took pictures of the night click here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/ennuiislife/sets/72157622040935747/ I also met a editor of a great website, Anna Tarkov, go to Daily Daley, click here: http://www.windycitizen.com/blogs/dailydaley I want to do a TV show with Anna, she has great humor. More on this later. Patrick McDonough.
I hope all the city workers during this difficult time can reach into their pocket and support David Hoffman in his bid for U.S. Senate. Please click here and help, http://www.hoffmanforillinois.com/ I met David Hoffman when three city workers spoke in front of the Federal judge regarding our mistrust of Chicago to implement fair hiring. It was Bruce Randazzo, Frank Anton, and I that told the judge the city is not to be trusted. I also asked the Federal Judge if the City of Chicago would provide the Office of the Inspector General with additional funding. David Hoffman enjoyed that request. I am going to make a contribution to David Hoffman and I hope everyone can dig in and help. Let’s reward people that respect the taxpayers. My bone to pick with the Office of the Inspector General is the taking of furlough days; I want a complete independent Inspector General in Chicago. Crime takes no day off in Chicago, neither should the Inspector General. Chicago Clout has some unfinished business with the I.G.; I hope these concerns are still a priority. Good luck, Mr. Hoffman.
