All This Money

It's amazing how it turns up when the mayor needs to buy votes:
  • Mayor Daley on Wednesday committed $276 million -- from low-income tax credits, bonds, loans and tax-increment financing subsidies -- to finance construction of 2,673 units of new affordable rental housing.

    The 29 developments in line for city financing include 11 for seniors, eight for families and five for single-room-occupancy or special needs residents.

How about taking that $276 million and closing the $220 million hole in the budget that Daley and the aldercreatures are attempting to cover by raising taxes on bottled water and everything else under the sun?

Or how about this Total Compensation Summary crap that we had to sign for this week? We were laughing out loud at the line item labeled "Pension Plan." This line item reads in the neighborhood of $15,000, yet we know for a fact that the pension plan is funded at under 52%, meaning that this is nothing more than a lie put to paper.

Doesn't anyone in the media have access to an accountant that could point out the BS that the mayor passes off as budget numbers?

Why is the city sending us a 2006 compensation summary stating they paid up on our pension when they have not?

I look at all the low income housing that was built in the early & mid 1990's around Humboldt Park area (Beats 1422/1423)they looked so nice and upscale. (Some even had woodburning fireplaces and whirlpool tubs.)

Now, I go into some of these same units and see that they are so trashed and worn out, that they'll have to be torn down by 2010 or face condemnation proceedings.

It's unbelievable. Some of the kitchens have 10 years of "fried chicken" grease on the walls and cook-tops. Maybe some general housekeeping skills classes should be mandatory, before getting "affordable housing." (handouts)

Way to go Daley..flush more hardworking taxpayer $$$ down the TOILET!

In the big scheme of things does the CPD really generate enough money to be self-supporting?

Im on furlo so I havent seen the 2006 compensation summary. I still write a few parkers here and there, but its just to those who park in Handicap spots. Those are personal to me, and thus will get a hanger.

The mayor never paid back the 9 million for tearing up the Megs Field Airport. Go after the property owners who leave abandoned houses on the block. Every block has between 5-10 on each block in the getto. WTF?? And the lazy alderclowns won't do a damn thing about them.

When I opened the envelope after getting my check I thought " what city propaganda" We don't have a contract so they smooth you by saying they pay you 120,000 a year so don't ask for more, we're paying you more than you're worth.

Slightly off topic:

Commander of the 003rd District, John Franklin is checking ALL ticket books for every watch nearly every week! He's basically FORCING his people to write tickets. I was even told by someone who hasn't wrote an alarm in a while too "write more." They told him, "I haven't been called to any alarms lately, sir." He said, "well, next time you hear one, volunteer." What kind of idiotic SHIT IS THIS?!

Is there somewhere in the GO that states WE HAVE TO WRITE TICKETS?!

I thought it was at OUR DISCRETION?

John Franklin, you are trying to force a LAZY district to do work. Fuck writing tickets. What about people that ACTUALLY WORK?! You really consider writing tickets work? Writing tickets and doing TVB's is for people who want to avoid being out on the streets.

I remember though, you're the same commander that is overally concerned with all the idiots on 75th street. Calling dispatch to have cars come write parkers on 75th street. Then dispatch has to say back to you, "sir, we are in a rap, we have 20 jobs pending and cars are asking for backup."

John Franklin, talk to 006th district. You'll hardly ever see a 006th district car on 75th street. THEY ARE TOLD TO AVOID BECAUSE OF ALL THE PEOPLE. You are so concerned with 75th street you even put up a car (372/306w) on midnights specifically for that area.

You are smoke and mirrors Franklin. You talk a good game and you make a good presentation, but that's where it stops. The only thing changing your district is the University of Chicago buying and developing all the land from 67 to 60th, cottage to stoney.

I read sometime back that a major Eurpoean City has yearly inspections of its low income housing units. If the unit is not being properly maintained the resident is forced out.

Just a thought.

As a young copper (circa 1967) I remember going into the Taylor Homes and finding apartments that were 10 time nicer then the one I grew up in. A mere 3 years later when I left the Duece the place was turning into a ghetto. BBQ's in the bathroom - garbage tossed over the side of the balconies, etc. etc. etc.. All the while we were told that it wasn't the residents fault because "they weren't taught not to do it." Seriously, that was the excuse dejour back then.

What society needs is a infusion of a basic concept called responsibility. Without responsibility no one can be expected to thrive anywhere. Lets hold all citizens who recieve a helping hand from the taxpayer exhibit a reasonable amount of responisbility.

Got to go - Marlin are running off John's Pass this AM.

To all you kids back there in Chicago - Keep Your Heads Held High, Don't let the fools get the best of you. They tried in the late sixties with those of us who held up the honor of the CPD at the Hilton, don't let them do it to you.
