Whoooooaaaa what a fucking shock!!!!111!!111
And here’s the thing…I like Deb. She’s fine, whatever. I would never have voted for her. This ward is something like 40% Hispanic and only 20% white. This ward is mostly working class. So why do we have another white, wealthy person representing us? There were so many great people who put their names into the running (a lot of them were community organizers, and we all know how Emanuel feels about that), and this whole thing was just such a farce and disappointment.
And as if it even needs to be said, the former Alderman Mell was absolutely horrible. I went to a community meeting about violence in the area and he straight up said, “I wish I knew what was going on in your neighborhoods.” Ugh. He also was part of the Vrdolyak 29, which, no comment. Let’s hope his daughter is better. At least until the elections in 2015. Hopefully someone actually runs against her then.
