Mayor Daley gives more work to Hispanic workers as Chicago Union Workers sit home and starve. Most people need to look at all the construction sites on Chicago streets. Almost every worker in the North side of the city is Hispanic. Where are the women? Not good enough Mayor Daley? Where are the blacks Mayor Daley? Not good enough? Construction jobs to people just speaking Spanish is out of control in Chicago. Go to the 5700 block of Lincoln in Chicago. See if what I say is true. Look at all these stories below. I am not against Hispanic folks, I am asking about a balance for all people. This is out of control in Chicago. Mayor Daley is out of his rocker. We need the FEDS to overlook all the minority cuts and no bid contracts. Do it now in case the Chicago economy gets worse. You will really have big problems than. Photo by Patrick McDonough
Devon Reid is a fine young man running for Alderman against a well-known Chicago Hispanic Politician. Mayor Daley has transferred a lot of jobs and wealth to these communities because the Hispanic community is sure fire votes. Roberto Maldonado is abusing his position by attempting to persuade folks he is the go to guy. I know he was a go to guy when a couple of water department employees got caught up in theft and Hired Trucks, that was before a much better Office of the Inspector General. I think most Chicago citizens know this silly goose is really sending out campaign flyers. Devon Reid is new to the game, but caught on quick. Remember, after the election, you will not see any more of these flyers. The Hispanic community is fed this junk all the time. Sad. Call 311 not that silly goose Roberto. I covered this in Munoz’s turf a few years back. Patrick McDonough
Flowers on the public way look very nice. Mayor Daley loves his flowers and the contractors that install them. One of my favorite pictures has Alderman’s Mell daughter and a special friend that got tons of contracts because she is a woman. Mayor Daley has control of millions of dollars by making unemployed people feel bad for knocking a no bid contract. A massive amount of money is directed to no bid minority companies thus bypassing a proper honest bid. As long as a front company looks over the work, the real theft continues behind the lines. As long as people are afraid to offend someone, the game continues. I still cannot understand why a major sewer supply company acts as a front and has a minority company with a Hispanic name supply sewer precast to the Department of Water Management marking up supplies for no reason. The City of Chicago should buy directly from the large vendor and save taxpayer’s millions. Chicago is broke, but the Chicago mob is still getting its cut. The Daley crime syndicate still skims the loot in the name of rightness. Enjoy this picture of this company that has Hispanic workers I had a hard time understanding. They had fire hydrant adapters and wrenches and the workers told me they take the water from fire hydrants. Mayor Daley wants water meters in homes, but the contractors take water for free. I am sure a markup is charged to the end user. I hope Daley offers our undocumented workers to China; there is no work or soup kitchens for unemployed Chicagoans. I called for Plumbing Inspectors but they are too busy to respond. Photo by Patrick McDonough
Most people know the fastest way to save lots of money in construction is to avoid safety rules. These actions backfire when someone gets injured or killed. I have talked about the complete and total reckless disaster at the Milwaukee Avenue, Cicero Avenue, and, Irving Park construction area. Mayor Daley packed this project with minority companies that are not working fast enough. Day after day, week after week, year after year, this project continues. It looks as though Daley is using taxpayer’s money to train Hispanic workers that speak very little or no English. As Americans starve, Hispanics are working all over Chicago in publicly funded projects. It gets worse every year. What a scam. I hope these companies pony up for Mayor Daley’s re-election. This is the new version of Hired Truck Scandal. I never see women or blacks on these sites. I never see gay workers. What a joke. Mayor Daley is heading to China to sell some more assets. It is all a joke. Other countries stopped coming to Chicago due to corruption and mis-management. This company has gradall equipment rolling into the lanes with no flaggers or barricades. I called Chicago emergency 311 and nothing was done for the public yesterday of today. If you are white and out of work, do not go to this jobsite, honky. Photo by Patrick McDonough. (Funny Story) A City of Chicago Department of Water Management boss that had a best friend fired so she could get a promotion, called in to one of the districts to announce he/she was heading in. Trick learned from Daley?
I know Mayor Daley is absolutely out of control in Chicago, but this is a new twist. I was called after work Saturday to look into a bunch of kids painting Fire Hydrants in Chicago. The kids were doing a fairly nice job and even took the time to place tape on the threads of the ports. I made sure some police showed up as everyone should when people tamper with the potable water supply. This is a major priority after 9/11 and posters at work inform us to not take this lightly. The kids told me they were doing a project for an Eagle Scout that was not on the site. I got another story about something to do with Alderman Doherty. I am not sure but they said they have written permission from the Alderman of the 41st Ward to paint Hydrants. The Chicago Police showed up after calling the leak desk and I let them know what was going on. The Police officer told me he painted hydrants red, white and blue during the America’s bicentennial when he was a kid. After the cops left, I talked to a man that is a Union 14 painter out of work over one year. It is a shame Daley and Doherty are having kids paint hydrants as working men starve. This is an interesting story; it just depends on your point of view. Is politics involved? I know I do these things on my own time, it shows what a great guy I am! Remember you silly gooses, do not touch the drinking water in Chicago unless you are an employee of the Department of Water Management, a phony minority company approved by Daley, or you have direct permission from the Commissioner of Water Management.

Fran Spielman wrote a great piece on a Chicago Park District boss that got fired when a male stripper was entertaining ladies in another room at the Wentworth Park District near Mayor Daley old home in Bridgeport. The fired park boss will be on Chicago Clout in a couple of weeks. Chicago Clout promised more stories and we deliver. Mayor Daley is the boss of the Chicago park District.
To put in simple terms, Mayor Daley is spending hundreds of millions of dollars in repair sewer systems to avoid problems in the future. Deadly chemicals are entering our water system as the contractors spay sealants into our waste water system. The old system of bricks and re-enforced concrete when properly installed lasts hundreds of years. So why are we coating perfectly good sewers with deadly chemicals? Because, Daley can and no-one will stop him. Did anyone release the contents in the buckets sprayed onto our sewer system? No. Are all the yuppies screaming bloody murder? No. Will these repairs fix the manholes like the one pictured above? No. Will these coatings repair existing broken sewers? No. Will someone get rich? Yes. So while Daley and the goons split up these contacts, our cars will be destroyed by broken basins and big holes all over the city. Again, the repair that needs to be done is put on hold. Arrowboard and barricade companies are making a ton of money renting to Chicago gathering dust on streets. The City of Chicago is out of barricades to cover new holes in the street and private contractor are stealing these barricades for use on their personal jobs. I guess when you have a couple of decades of hiring scams, everyone pays, and pays. My future story is how city workers got screwed last Friday with no pay while privates cashed in!

Friday was a day off for most Department of Water Management Employees. The 48Th Ward was packed with major repairs from Mayor Daley contractors today. Chicago Contractors were working Saturday at time and one half!!! One of the contractors that sparked an interest with me is Smith Maintenance. Smith, as far as I remember, was involved with Daley in the Chicago Harbors. As far as I can make it, Daley gave a multi-million dollar deal to Benchmark Construction to dummy up the sewers and basins in Chicago. Jay Levine, the chief correspondent for CBS 2 Chicago, was real close when he was on to Kenny Construction and the Sewer lining deal. Again Jay found another sub-contractor doing the work. This contract is a phony patch and a real nice deal for another one of Daley buddies. The variation on the theme is Benchmark Construction, which sub-contracted Smith maintenance. Smith is completing the work for Daley contractor of choice. The almost 30 million dollar sewer contract also has Minority Business and Woman’s owned Business’s cut of about 28%. So the question is who is doing the work? Why continue to have work for minority contractors when people are out of work? In this picture you will also see, American Surveying Consultants. Mayor Daley likes Hispanic owned businesses to handle the engineering. Unemployed Chicagoans are too stupid I guess. I will make one thing very simple to those who do not understand Chicago politics. Daley has a special systems for contracts, bids, racket protection, and phony minority cut-ins, right until payday. If you get a ticket for pollution, shortchanging the terms of the contracts, the house drain inspectors will look the other way, the Chicago Department of Environmental Inspectors like Mark Pantaleo will not write tickets, Chicago Department of Water Management staff will not enforce the contracts, the Office of the Inspector General will do nothing, and Scott D. Sachnoff, Senior Counsel of municipal Prosecutions Division under Mara Georges, will allow staff to cut deals prior to the actual court date and times. This is how money is made in Chicago folks, when Daley’s friends get the bid, they do not enforce the rules. I think the FBI needs a little phone call, got a dime? Photo by Patrick McDonough
Many people in Chicago are struggling to make ends meet. Thanks to Mayor Daley and his insane desire to sell everything for a quick profit, we will give our children a grim future. Daley continues to lie to the press and the press continues to warn us. One of the greatest problems is the constant promotions to political family members and hacks. One of the positions that make us sick is Alderman Crothers brother. It is great to be the Alderman’s brother, but nutty Daley put a gun and badge in the wrong hands. Daley does not want average citizens with a gun, but this loon carries 24/7? In the rumor mill is the promotion of General Superintendent at the Department of Water Management. The promotion might be reposted because one of the clout dummies did not interview well. The Shakman monitor allows reposting which is a scam. This is a moral buster. Enjoy Daley2011, the City is worse by the minute. Patrick McDonough
Mayor Daley and his goons have one powerful weapon that controls the elections in Chicago. Contracts. Mayor Daley and his family prospered despite the boom and bust cycles of the economy. The FEDS never took the time to take apart the miracle minority fortunes made almost overnight. The Office of the Inspector General never made any connections to the upper Daley family confidents that decide who gets what and when. When a minority company is blessed by Daley, they show up all over the State, County, and City. The Chicago Unions keep away and workers are paid well below prevailing wage. The insiders have their flavor of the day, when the ice-cream melts so do the contracts. John Kass wrote a great article about Morales, it is below for your entertainment. Morales rests in jail and no reporter asked Daley what he knew; they did not want to offend Daley. No reporter asked Daley if his administration launched an investigation into the City officials that had contact with Marco. I guess they do not want to offend Dick Tator.
