This is a picture of Deborah Franks, Patrick McDonough, and Illinois State Rep. Jack Franks (D-McHenry). Jack is a class act and a great radio personality. Thanks for the nice time Tom Roeser. Make sure you watch Can-TV February 14, 2011 at 8:00 pm channel 21 and February 16, 2011 4:00 pm channel 21. We talk about Chicago’s 48Th Ward.
I am happy to report, we are assisting Tamara Edwards to take over more hosting on Chicago Clout. As long as she stops calling me a snitch and remembers it is called a Whistleblower!!! I am sure this will give me more time to produce shows. Michael McGann will host “Ask Your Plumbing Inspector” with Kristina Lee. Please enjoy!
The 2011 Blizzard was another feast for Mayor Daley’s “Hired Truck” pals. Nothing like an emergency to rape and scam the Chicago Taxpayers again. Chicago has never learned its lesson and continues to make the non-union scabs and suburban trucking companies millions while Chicago residents sit at home and starve. What a going away present for Daley and his 11Th Ward goons. This weekend was a prime example of union city workers sent home while members of Local 150 continue to load the “Hired Trucks”. Chicago Teamsters get part-time work thanks to paying for the excess and debts Daley piles on the back of folks struggling to make ends meet. Daley leaves poor blacks and Hispanics with no future or job while the suburban trucking companies prepare to pillage the city to bankruptcy. What did the Union Teamsters and Operating Engineers do about this? Much of this work is under supervision of union workers/ What are you doing? Now some unions think Rahm is the answer, better think that one over again. Will the Office of the Inspector General investigate if prevailing wage, living wages and benefits are paid to these scabs? We also need to watch out for kickbacks. Photo by Chicago Clout Inspector.
Gloria Martinez of Peirce School in Chicago forgot to get back to Patrick McDonough a candidate for Chicago's 48Th Ward. I wanted to get some picture time and meet and greet the kids. Gloria said she would need to contact some higher ups. Geat how America works for some folks better than others. I better ask Mary Ann Smith to see what the holdup is!!! This pre- 8Th grade school is one of the better in the Edgewater area.
The City of Chicago needs to review the lack of oversight with mayor Daley's trucking and towing contractor pals. By the time the 'review" is made, we will be broke. How can contractors work and City workers sit a home and stave? The Daley family eats well and the middleclass eat table scraps.
The Chicago Sun-Times has been in a Rahm Emanuel stupor for far too long. The Chicago Sun-Times has been outrageous in its blatant support of Rahm Emanuel for mayor of Chicago. I have watched the newspaper threaten appellate court judges and press the Rahm agenda. They forget they have a duty to inform the public. The public was never informed of the real technicalities in the Rahm Residency case, selling the ignorant on making the case "let the public decide". The newspapers have not given a fair chance to the public sponsoring the debates we all need. The Sun-Times endorsed a candidate in the 48Th Ward without giving a single compelling reason. Today, I got a phone call from a Sun-Times writer, Stefano Esposito. He asked me, 'What about my lack of vision for the 48Th Ward"? He asked that before asking my vision for the 48Th Ward. The Sun-Times and I go back for over a decade, I assisted in many stories. I kept away from the Sun-Times because of possible ethic violations. I am a member of a professional journalistic society. The Sun-Times has blown any credibility in Aldermanic races and the 48Th Ward with splendor. Their choice in the 36Th Ward is a farce. I think the Sun-Times is trying to sell the snow job on the 48Th. The Sun-Times should demand debates in all wards.
The Office of the Inspector General and the Shakman Monitor were answering the phone again as employees' ramp up the allegations of fraud and misconduct. Several current employees complain the old warriors of Rahm Emanuel's congressional race were looking and receiving promotions like there is no tomorrow. In the days of old, people knew the promotions would go to certain workers, but the reward was overtime. Now, the campaign workers want the promotions because the O.T. is a thing of the past. At Chicago Clout we reported Daley's contractor pals are raking in the cash which could funnel loot into Rahm's campaign. In fact, Chicago Clout has received complaints from City contractors about phone calls recommending a donation to the mayoral campaign. "You like how things are going now", said the caller. In the January 2011 pay envelope, employees were given the notice from the Shakman Monitor. I again remind the City workers to call and get things on the record. I want everyone to know, nothing has changed for the better at the City of Chicago. The Chicago Taxpayers are on the hook for millions more in lawsuits. I have a feeling if we vote for Rahm, we will have a Daley incarnate. Patrick McDonough (Shakman Monitor Phone number 1-312-422-0001
During the Chicago Blizzard of 2011, Chicago Firefighters were looking for Fire Hydrants in case of a fire. They were also digging them out of the snow drifts. Many of Chicago’s Fire Hydrants are frozen solid and do not work. I guess more people need to die before the problem is fixed. I am glad Daley is leaving, the next mayor of chicago has a mess.
