Chicago City Workers and Local 130 Plumbers protest Todd Stroger to fire Tommie Talley

City of Chicago Political hack, Chicago Department of Water Management Boss, and John Daley Goon, Tommie Talley, was under fire today at the Cook County Department of Transportation. These workers showed up at 6:30 a.m. to demand Tommie Talley’s immediate termination . Chicago Plumbers want to know how the Plumber’s Local 130 allowed this man a journeyman’s card despite never working a day as a plumber. According to a Local 130 Plumber, “You can buy a Plumber’s License in Chicago if you know Dan McLaughlin, James Sullivan, or Robert Ryan”. “It is great; you don’t need to know shit about Plumbing”. Tommie Talley was ordered to see the Office of the Inspector General after the “Hired Truck Scandal Broke and Mayor Daley ordered a phony investigation”. The Chicago Inspector General Alexander Vroustouris let many of Daley’s political hacks off the hook, the F.B.I let many of these goons off the hook, and continue to raid the taxpayers last few pennies. Please tell Todd Stroger to review the way Water Department Women were treated and given preferred positions thanks to Talley. Union Local 1092 black women were given inside office jobs despite possible Shakman Violations. We will “Rally to Fire Talley” no matter where the County hides him”, declared protesters today. Tally also allowed some workers paid lunch with clout. The next protests are scheduled downtown at the Cook County Building.

Is Mayor Daley's contractor Christy Webber wasting water?

Christy Webber Wasting Water/ Chicago Clout Today was another mess for Chicago taxpayers thanks to scams by Mayor Daley friends and family contracts. Anyone driving down Peterson Avenue near Keating would have witnesses an accident that might have been caused by a water leak from the Landscaping maintained by Christy Webber Landscapes and Central Sprinkler Company. I have made Chicago Clout insiders aware of another one of Mayor Daley’s preferred contactors making unneeded expenses for broke Chicago taxpayers. This massive tanker of water uses two workers to drive around and water plants despite it being late in the season. The two workers were watering the plants on October 8, 2010. Not a bad thing you say? Before you start you hating, The City of Chicago paid to have a sprinkler system installed. The Sprinkler system is maintained by Central Sprinkler from Elk Grove. Some of these sprinklers are flooding Peterson causing dangerous conditions. Why in the hell would Daley hire a company to take Chicago City Water from a Fire Hydrant, load the water into a tanker, and then hire two workers to water plants? Why does this scam really stink to high heaven? Why does the sprinkler system not work? Who approved this contact extra? Are idiots running Chicago? Why are the Chicago drivers in danger as they cruise through Peterson Avenue? Today, Chicago City workers were not paid, but Daley’s private contractors continued to do nothing? The Chicago Unions controlled by Daley really did a number on everyone, again. Photo by Patrick McDonough

Daley shoveling taxpayer'smoney to private companies before he skips out of office.

National Sewer Company On October 7, 2010, at about 10:47 a.m. Mayor Daley sent National Power Rodding out with City Department of Water Management employees to investigate a hole on Laurence Avenue near Alderman “Hired Truck” Laurino’s offices. The Department of Water Management employee allowed this company to attach a hose to the Fire Hydrant with-out backflow protection despite Municipal Advocates General’s multiple demands for Water Safety in Chicago. The end of the hose was sticking into the hole made by a sewer wash-out. Many people wonder why they get sick after drinking Chicago’s water. The city engineer was informed by me, channel 7 news, and the Chicago Department of Environment of the multiple violations to Chicago’s drinking water requirements. Nothing was done. The engineer said, “the department is still working on complaints I have made before”. If you review the websites watched all day by the Plumbing Inspector in charge of these contractors, you will find complete and total negligence to the taxpayer’s drinking water. Also, the Chicago Office of the Inspector General is not investigating due to lack of manpower and Daley’s mismanagement of the Department. The Federal Government has let all of us down due to politics. I am still waiting for an interview into complaints made about Smith contractors. I am still waiting for an investigation into the water quality tests from a high rise building on Diversey Avenue. How many more cover-ups can the department continue to make? Private contractors left caution tape, belt buckles, sand, debris, with wood dirt and leaves for people to drink in water mains. Daley departure cannot happen soon enough, time to look deep into all these political hacks destroying Chicago. Photo byPatrick McDonough an his day off, again.

Will Daley leave Chicago soon enough? We he take his suburban Contractors?

M&A Cement Works, Inc 1/ Chicago Clout Many Chicago taxpayers are out of a job. Jobs are nowhere to be found. While this happens, many high profile Chicago bigwigs enjoy the high life at the Drake Hotel. Obama might not understand the desperate conditions in Illinois. This is another company working on Chicago Streets. The company is located in the suburbs. If you look close, you will see many OSHA violations. The concrete dust is everywhere and the worker has no respiration protection device. This company is M&A Concrete Works, Inc. Some suburban cities are not happy with this company. Now they are working in Chicago. This was on Cicero Ave. a State Road. I hope this company gives some campaign contribution into Daley’s friend and family plan. I hope some Chicago City workers and Unions take notice. Photo by Patrick McDonough
