The 48Th ward in Chicago has been poorly served by Mary Ann Smith for a mighty long time. Any slop Mayor Daley served up to Mary Ann Smith was eagerly gobbled down. Mary Ann was at the trough for far too long. Two candidates could not even get on the ballot last election, because of Mary's staff of political experts. I really wish Mary Ann Smith would have spent that time looking over proposals the Daley Administration dumped on us. Mary Ann would blindly vote for everything and anything. Many parts of the ward vastly improved thanks to the massive cash influx during the last couple of decades. Andersonville is a great neighborhood. Many improvement have been made to the ward but the decay is evident more each day. The infrstrucure in crumbling, sewers, water main leaks left for weeks are on the increase. 48th Ward Superintendent Conrad Suerth has been one of the bright points in the ward. Conrad was a ditchdigger at the political Chicago Water Department. Connie dumped ship after the Hired Truck Scandal. My concern for the ward is political gadfly Harry Osterman, a real windbag, useless as they come. Harry will be back with the same old machine politics destroying Chicago. The only bright spot is a guaranteed job for Conrad Suerth. The 48Th Ward needs a fresh face ready, willing and able to address ward problems. I am happy Mary Ann Smith is going out to graze. Bye, Bye. Patrick McDonough, the pride of Andersonville.

Firt of all Pat, Conrad was a Water Department Laborer not a ditch digger. As a matter of fact he was quite a good Laborer, he showed up every day on time and performed his duties as was required. Second, he did not jump ship as a result of the Hired Truck Scandal as you imply and again you make statements in that manner to twist things around to your liking. Report the facts as they are and not as you seem to see them. (Response) I published your post line for line no corrections. Laborers are ditch diggers, Maintenance Engineers are janitors. Are you offended digging a hole? Anyone that could retire or jump ship after Hired Truck Scandal hit the Water Department did.
