Luis Arroyo made his chops at the City of Chicago Department of Water Management. He also made his name as an Illinois State Representative. While at the Department of Water Management making a large salary, Luis was best known as Donald “the convict” Tomczak’s doorkeeper. How the heck Luis got away with the Hired Truck program and the contracts at the Department of Water Management can only be answered by Mike Madigan, Alderman Ed “slimeball” Burke, and the Chicago Inspector General. It was a really nice run doing little except making deals while at the Chicago Water Department while taking a large easy job as State Rep. I had the heat on his ass for a while, but I had a nice relationship with him and let some things slide. We had some pictures with him when he called for service at his office. I agreed to lay low. His luck ran out on him.
With all the dough he had, I surprised he was looking for some peanuts. Luis is on the Illinois transportation committee with DOWM alumni John “Hired Truck” D’Amico and DOWM new star Jawaharial Williams. Wait for all Department of Water Management employees and State Representatives? Yes.
Funny as it seems, Luis really hosed his son, Luis “say nothing” Arroyo Jr., the current Cook County Commissioner. Ole Junior left his job as an office statue at the North District truck drivers at the Water Department. What a great job, pulling your pud all day while everyone else works their ass off. Now that pops is fucked, Commissioner Conner better make some room back at the North District. The Puerto Rician political powerhouse is doomed. Lori Lightfoot keeps many Illinois State Representatives on the City payroll full time. These goons make piles of money. John D’Amico just retired from the Department of Water Management after banging the taxpayers for 30 plus years. Amazing. Hidden at the Jardine Plant. Come into work, take a city SUV, sedan, and then vanish. D’Amico, you think you can slip away from the kid? You got court soon.
Luis, Luis, Luis, you got away with murder for a long time. You also screwed my homeboy and childhood friend Mr. Munoz. You forgot where you came from and forgot your homeboys at the Illinois Workers Compensation Commission.
Please look forward to John D’Amico and the Sandoval scams. John C. D’Amico should return all the ComEd dough. Bada Bing, Bada Boom. Payback is a bitch. The transportation scandal is hitting home, Mr. Conner. Duck, Duck, Goose.
Chicago Clout has reported the water in Chicago is under serious question. In fact, hard work we have completed exposed the way the Department of Water Management refuses to ensure the water in Chicago is always safe. I am proud a dismissed lawsuit has been reinstated and the lead in the water is going to be brought forth for facts. It is time for accountability.
At Chicago Clout, we just told you the filtration Plants are
still in the dark ages. Many of the equipment is broken, shorted out, or plain
not working. We told you about the Roseland Pumping Station and the poor
response from the Water Department. Once again, on Saturday, October 12, 2019,
the same station broke down and low pressure was called into Chicago Clout and
Chicago Water Department.
The Southside of Chicago lacked adequate water to fight fires, and folks could not flush their toilets. Twice. This released deadly poisons in the water mains and lead. As a Licensed Plumber and Plumbing Inspector, I was again stunned no Plumbing Inspectors were rushed to protect the Chicago Potable Water Supply. More on this story soon.
Now they are making a movie about the Chicago water system poisoned in a three-hour movie. I have been consulting on many projects to make sure accuracy and realism comes through. Once a T.V. star, always a T.V. star. I would like to know when the newspapers and T.V. stations are going to report this mess.
Shame on the Department of Water Management again. On October 2, 2019, Chicago Clout received frantic calls for water in the Roseland neighborhood. The pumping station shut down and many people had little or no water. Many people are not aware Commissioner Conner has been misplacing needed repairs to the stations that provide potable drinking water for millions of people. Mayor Lori Lightfoot and her staff has been informed and were gobsmacked. The neighborhood is a very, very, poor neighborhood with many black citizens. I called an old friend at the Jardine Plant and was told, maybe if those people pay their water bills”. Department of Water Management employees told me that Mayor Lori Lightfoot keeps the water on, and folks are not paying their bills. The Department of Water Management makes millions and millions for the city coffers and the hit is taking its toll. The investment into infrastructure starts in the white neighborhoods and then trickles down into the ghettos.
When the neighborhoods have the water shut off, the water in
the buildings flows back into the water mains. Many residents complained of
having “blue water” in their drinking water. This happens when bowl cleaners
are in the toilet tanks and the backflow occurs. The fire stations were
furious. I asked if quality control and the Plumbing Inspectors were dispatched
to this emergency, NO. The water shutdown forced another round of lead into the
drinking water when the water mains were turned on.
Many of these poor blacks and senior citizens were unaware to flush the water system and no-boil order was made. No newspapers or T.V stations were told to make the public aware. I also received many calls about black water and very, very, dark brown water. Someone needed to tell Commissioner “Coo Coo” Conner how to run the water department. You can not rely on Alderman “Blackjack” Austin to tell you what to do all the time.
