BOLD MOVE OR JUST A STUNT?

Former Alderman Martin Oberman and Roosevelt University's Paul Green on Shrinking City Council: MyFoxCHICAGO.com

  1. I like the idea on the surface. But having it come from Emanuel makes me think. He's probably just using it as a political stunt. He wants to get the aldermen in line as quickly as possible. A good offense is the best defense. It's also a diversion. He can work behind the scenes to get his agenda started while everyone is talking about this. He's tricky. It will be interesting to see what else he has up his sleeve.

  2. After watching the above video, we could DEFINATELY remove 25 Aldermen and their staff's!

    A little known fact is that each Alderman has two fully staffed offices. One in the Ward and the other at City Hall. YES CITY HALL. That's 100 office's for 50 Aldermen, a total waste of taxpayer dollars.

    A cut to 25 Aldermen with just a Ward Office would save Millions of our dollars.

    Let's face it, most of us almost never get any use out of the Alderman. When you call for anything, they tell you to call 311!

    This issue needs to move forward fast!
