Please enjoy this picture of Senator James Meeks and Gery Chico at the Catholic Charities Thanksgiving 2010 at 721 North LaSalle. Both of these men served the homeless and are also running for Mayor of Chicago. I do not recall Mayor Richard Daley ever humbling himself to serve anyone else besides himself, his family, and friends. One of these two men would make a much better Mayor of Chicago. Both of these men had very civil conversations and Senator James Meeks had a wonderful conversation with Sunny Chico. Both of these candidates agreed to appear on the Chicago Clout T.V. show during this election cycle. A great leader should humble himself to fully understand the plight of the needy, times are not looking very bright in Chicago due to economic hardship. I am just happy to see these men working together for the common good during this Thanksgiving season. God Bless. Photo by Patrick McDonough

(Response) Save your hate for the other guy! What you wrote is not appropriate for Chicago Clout.
Oh but all your hateful comments are appropriate for Chicago Clout. The man IS a gay hater, stop avoiding that issue or is this what you would do as an alderman, avoid the issues if they don’t suit you? It’s not hate, it’s a fact and just who is the other guy you are referring to? (Response) Why do you post hateful things on this website. The man was serving homeless people a thanksgiving meal! Poor starving people with no home. What were you eating on Thanksgiving?
November 27, 2010 (CHICAGO) (WLS) — Two people running for Chicago mayor participated in the first-ever Small Business Saturday, a nationwide effort to encourage shoppers to support independently-owned stores and restaurants this holiday season.
Carol Moseley Braun, operates an organic beverage firm, visited stores in Chicago’s Lincoln Square and Ravenswood neighborhood.
Gery Chico visited a North Side small business. Chico said 80-percent of Chicago employers run small businesses.
“I think it’s a very, very important part of Chicago: the entrepreneurial spirit. My administration will work very hard as it promotes job creation to focus on our local neighborhoods and our commercial strips,” said Chico.
“We can cut the red tape. We can roll out the red carpet for small businesses that locate in the neighborhoods, creating jobs in the neighborhoods. We can help them with financing,” said Braun.
Early indications suggest Black Friday sales were good for both small and large business. TV sets and toys were big sellers.
Again, it’s not hateful, it’s a fact but I guess you don’t like facts..
What was I eating on Thanksgiving? I was at the Dincin center, how about you? (Response) Hope ya get better. I will ask Mr. McDonough to pray for you.
November 28, 2010 (CHICAGO) (WLS) — Mayoral candidate Gery Chico is urging the legislature to pass a bill that would allow civil unions.
Chicago met with members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community at a North Side restaurant Sunday. The bill, which may be considered by the general assembly this week, would make civil unions legal for same sex couples in Illinois.
Chico also said if elected Chicago mayor he’ll work to allow gay marriage in Illinois.
