Are you going to Vote for John G. Mulroe for 10TH District Senate in Chicago, Illinois?

John G. Mulroe 1.jpg A few days ago, Ronald Bober, a famous Investigator for the City of Chicago Department of Water Management just got done with lunch and was greeted with a great big “Hello” from John G. Mulroe a candidate for Senate in Illinois. He is a fine upstanding breath of fresh air in the Democratic primary to take over for James “FEDS at the Door” DeLeo. I have not made up my mind in this race, but John would be a strong choice and any friend of Mary O’Connor 41St Ward Committeeman, is a friend of mine. John was very interested in hearing what the Chicago Water Department crew had to say. We need more politicians that are able to do so. Please contact John and see if he would be a good candidate to represent you and you community. Go to his website here: http://www.mulroeforsenate.com/ Photo by Patrick McDonough

Chicago Park District Green Briar and Warren Park Holiday Hootenany

CPD Green Briar Park Holiday.jpg The Chicago Park District has a wonderful musical program at Green Briar Park and Warren Park. December 11, 2009 was the first performance for my son Patrick, a gifted young guitar player. I am happy Patrick will join the musical program very soon. Cutbacks in the Chicago Park District are very short sighted. These music programs are great for unity and fellowship for people of every background. The Music Instructor was Emery Joe Yost and the Park Supervisor was Timothy Gibson for the evening program. When I was a young lad, I was part of the City Wide Youth Orchestra, as a bass player. Money spent on these programs is well invested, they teach kids to work together and understand teamwork. Green Briar Park is located at 2650 West Peterson. I look forward to covering more of these concerts. One of the best parts of the show was watching ll the proud parents. Photo by Patrick McDonough

Chicago CBS 2 News goes "Old School" on the competition

Many people in Chicago spent a decade or more watching Bill Kurtis and Walter Jacobson on channel 2 News. A while ago, I mentioned on Chicago Clout the plans at the news station to bring back the viewers. One of the bright spots at the news station is Dave Savini and Michelle Youngerman. Please watch Dave’s latest story, click here; http://cbs2chicago.com/video/[email protected] I was a little surprised to see Ms. Youngerman come forward on her personal health situation, that was very brave. I hope this channel continues to put the beat down on Mayor Daley and question his motives. Walter Jacobson was in spectacular fashion with his perspective. ABC 7 is still the king of news in Chicago and they have a great staff, but CBS is aggressive and motivated. I think one of these stations should hire a Chicago City Employee to give a fresh perspective once a week, do you? You know a look from the inside; I think I better start on the treadmill for my new post!

Did the Tadin Goons bite off more than they can chew? Hired Truck Boss back to feast!

Hired Truck Program.jpg Fran Spielman was back on top of her game today tying in Mayor Daley’s friend and family program, Mike Tadin’s goon enterprises, and the Building Department special inspectors for the 11TH Ward. What do I mean? Tadin an 11TH Ward Goon, is entering into the house building business. If you have money to launder, this is the business the IRS is too uninformed to watchdog. Fran Spielman also put together theft of water from the Chicago Fire Hydrants. Amazing. It seems to me the pieces are almost all together in the Tadin, Daley, Water Department pimps and players. The script; if Tadin is going to build home, all the city building inspectors on the project know to find nothing wrong. This project needs to be watched by the Office of the Inspector General with a close eye. Tadin made millions with his scab trucking company; expect unions to shy away from enforcing a 100% union worksite. The part of the story Fran nailed was related to ABC 7 News special with Plumbing Inspector/ Whistleblower John Swietczak exposing the stealing of water from Fire Hydrants. Chicago Clout also demands an investigation into the way the fines were imposed by the Department of Water Management against contractors caught pilfering water from Chicago taxpayers. Michael Tucker, son of retired Plumbers’ local 130 enforcer Paul “RC” Tucker, had his plate full yesterday with an all day Building Department meeting at Chicago City hall. Michael Tucker got a nice ride up the promotion ladder, and needs his workload increased. Chicago Clout also demands a review of the websites he has visited the last few years. Chicago Department of Water Management brass has failed again enforcing rules and regulations. I say fire all the goons Daley sent from the Police Department to hush to dissention at the Water Department. Feel free to ask Michael Tucker how he got his job and promotion and make sure you call 1-312-744-3764 if you plan on taking water from a Chicago Fire Hydrant. See attached story below.

Pressure Washing Systems clean up Mayor Daley's Departments

Pressure washing systems 1.jpg Pressure washing systems have been on Chicago Clout’s radar for a very long time. They have washed backhoes and trucks at the City of Chicago Department of Water Management for years. It is no secret they have been reported to the Chicago Office of the Inspector General for flagrant violations. I cannot list them right now. When I approached this company, the workers could not speak English. I contacted the union that covers this bargaining agreement, they did nothing. For years they have washed Chicago’s City Hall sidewalks. The same contractors tied to Blago are tied to Mayor Daley. Do you find it funny how they only talk about certain connections and not others? The City of Chicago is corrupt beyond repair; I just wonder why nothing is done. Chicago Clout is years ahead of the corruption curve, and we will always stay ahead of the top stories. We have more on this company that needs to come out soon, let’s see if the new leadership at the Chicago Office of the Investor General follows through. This picture was taken at the Department of Management yard in Chicago, this company came onto government property with no identification check, they rolled right in.

David Hoffman for U.S. Senate meeting at the Chicago downtown headquarters

David Hoffman U.S. Senate.jpg Tonight was a very good start for the Chicago branch of David Hoffman’s organization in his quest to become the next U.S. Senator from Illinois. I admit I did not look very nice tonight when I arrived to his meeting but was welcomed. I have had such an untrusting opinion of Illinois politicians for so long; I never thought I could trust again. I really and truly trust David Hoffman and the group he assembled to get him into higher office. I was excited to see a large and diverse group of people that want David to succeed. I also noticed Alderman Joe Moore present; Joe was one of the earlier Chicago politicians to endorse David Hoffman. Alderman Moore was a great help in answering legal questions on David’s petition drive. David gave a great speech and pep talk to the troops. I want to give a disclaimer on this website, I intend to support David Hoffman’s bid for U.S. Senate in every way possible. He is the best candidate, but most importantly, he can deliver the victory for the Illinois Democratic Party. I was also very happy to see Chicago city employees donating their time for petitions and donating money. David’s mother Carol personally welcomed the supporters at the door of his headquarters. If you want to improve the system, contact Mr. Hoffman’s campaign office and get involved now, click here: http://www.hoffmanforillinois.com/index.asp Lets keep Obama’s former seat .
