Brewer Gets AFSCME Endorsement

The Brewer blog reports that Greg Brewer has received the endorsement of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees Council 31. [PDF] This is probably the endorsement hinted at in earlier comments.

95 Comments:

As a former AFSCME member, I think this is an appropriate choice. Much congratulations to Greg Brewer for earning AFSCME's support. I hope it isn't just an in name endorsement and that he gets cash and people out of it.

AFSCME union motto should be that "they hsve never saw a grievance they did not like". If you were to ask officals of the building/ trades unions their opinions of AFSCME, they just roll their eyes. AFSCME is upset over the lack of a big pay raise for their member. Well if the city would not have to spend so much money litigating such frivilious grievances, there be more to spend on employee pay raises.

Litigating frivolous grievances like Alderman Bernard Stone's lawsuit against the city when he fell on a broken curb in his own ward? A curb that he was responsible for fixing?

Yeah, sure, AFSCME is the one with THAT problem. Give me a break.

Would that reason be that you've never found the caps lock key?

Or is there some other reason?

And what can I do if I don't like it?

I hate guys who shake down people who don't agree, who use intimidation to hold their grasp on power, and who only decide it's actually time to do their jobs for three months every four years.

Bernie - I don't hate Bernie. I feel sorry for him. He could have retired with dignity and gone to his house in Arizona.

But he didn't.

So now, we - the people of the 50th ward - are going to make him retire.

Here is what DFA's website says about DFA:

About DFA
What is Democracy for America?


Inspired by the presidential campaign of Howard Dean, Democracy for America (DFA) is a political action committee dedicated to supporting fiscally responsible, socially progressive candidates at all levels of government—from school board to the presidency. DFA fights against the influence of the far right-wing and their radical, divisive policies and the selfish special interests that for too long have dominated our politics.

DFA has a long-term goal to rebuild the Democratic Party from the bottom up—it will take time, but we must start building a base now for the future.


Hmm, sounds pretty good to me! Unless you're a REPUBLICAN like STONE!

Good for the 50th? I say GOOD FOR NOTHIN'!

You should go over the Bernie's web site. It's a real hoot.

"Improved our community by creating Warren Park and the Warren Park Field House in 1978."

1978? And I wonder what Howie Carroll would say about that?

"Increased safety by creating the 24th Police District and led the construction of the 24th District Police Station in 1977."

1977? And the building is almost ready to be replaced.

"Spearheaded the creation of the Birchwood Sewer System in 1978."

1978? And don't we pay taxes for sewers?

"Reduced traffic and congestion by extending Kedzie Avenue from Albion Avenue to Howard Street."

Then we made it one way because he was so pissed that the courts tore down his wall.

"Fought for tenants rights by raising the minimum heat ordinance in 1979 from 55 degrees to 63 degrees."

63 DEGREES! They're lucky to have any heat at all.

Bernie's web site is as fun as CAPS MAN.

Gentle friends,

A blog, such as this lovely one, is a wonderful place to discuss the issues and to present facts about the great 50th ward. Democracy is a wondrous activity. Getting involved in creating a better community is a noble pursuit.

So, in the spirit of freedom-loving and fact-filled fun, let us all devote more energy toward constructive criticism and less cap-full criticisms.

We all do realize that playas don't hate. Since we are all active in the ward due to a desire to make this a better and improved community, let us show the love.

Now, I do humbly admit that bigotry and blasphemy have a place in a bungalow or two, but, let's pray tell, enforce some civility in our comments.

So, fewer caps and more concretes are always welcome in our desire for democratic discourse!

The objective there was to take away the fact that Greg Brewer was endorced by AFSME. That person was successful (as far as this blog goes).

I'm all for free speech but I'd suggest to JS that he censor that fella. He will drive away your visitors and ruin your blog. You might consider other options but he seems hell bent on ruining this discussion.

Congrats again to Greg, he is lining up those endorsements.

Speaking of racism, sexism, religonism (if there is such a term)....there is plenty of it in this race.....I'm not saying anyone is using it in their campaigns, but I have never seen a City that votes Based on ethnicity more than Chicago does.

Yes lets get back to AFSCME. This is a union who's Executive Director recently said as he has in the past, dont cut jobs to balance the budget raise taxes.

This is the union, while the other trade unions were willing to have their members take an unpaid day off to avoid lays off and balance the budget, was filing grievances because the city ended it water cooler contract to save tax payers money and balance the city budget.( frivilious???) By the way the money saved on that contract was enough to keep the jobs of 3 AFSCME represented employees,

So I guess Greg Brewer would be in favor of raising property taxes so employees can drink bottled water.

Gentle friends,

Trade unions and trade unionism are a beautiful legacy in our great city. Of course, given conundrums of modern life, differences do arise as to how to balance municipal budgets and such. But let us take heart in that Mr. Brewer, and others, who have experience in balancing needs and issues of different groups and communities can handle this important task.

Now, certainly, one could think that unions and union members should, as in Chicago vernacular, take the heat, but it would seem that cooler heads may prevail in an open process such as budget hearings with public participation and town hall meetings leading up to budget deliberation.

Why, pray tell, would we think that union members should bear the brunt of a budget that has not even been conceived by such parties?

Methinks that there are many keys to many doors that would unlock the way forward to budget bliss in our great city. We should all look for the union label but not necessarily look for just the union label whence it comes time for budget cuts.

Let us all kindly take a look at property taxes and budget balancing. Methinks that one need not give rise to the other. Or, put another way, let's see what is effective and efficient government rather than cut off the union positions and only those. Why, it may be that some of our duly appointed patronage chiefs should take a pay cut or kindly search for new positions in other sectors that may be able to afford such expensive services.

Not really, but I could see how you might get that impression if you were to evaluate this race based on this thread.

Of course this is America and race is always an issue. I'm proud that Rogers Park folks get along pretty well most of the time. The rumors of racial conflict in Rogers Park are greatly exaggerated. On the ground, this race is mostly about basic good government issues that cross racial lines.

I could be wrong but I think JS will allow points of view from any of the candidates sides. Until that goof-ball got in here the discussion was at least civil.

It is very tough to have a message board or blog totally free of moderation. People that disagree with you or your point of view (especially in politics)will ruin it for you and the rest of the decent people that use it. I've been through that wringer a time or two.

Why do you equate opposition with hate? Because that's the party line. Literally.

Stone knows he can't win unless you believe that your world is threatened. All the masters of propaganda do this. His machine is old and decrepit. He has few people who will get out and work for him. It's much easier to build a false reality around a tired old man and a tired old machine. It's called the bunker mentality. Stone both lives and works in a bunker, so he's done it to himself.

Did you get your nap today?

THE OPPOSITION TO STONE ,ESPECIALLY BY THE BREWER CAMP,IS BASED ON CREATING ANGER WITHIN A COMMUNITY THAT IS NOT ANGRY.THE 50TH WARD IS A GREAT EXAMPLE OF DIVERSITY THAT IS THE AMERICAN DREAM WITH ALL DEMOGRAPHIC GROUPS LIVING IN HARMONY,A HARMONY THEY DO NOT LIVE IN ELSEWHERE IN THE WORLD.BERNARD STONE IS THE REASON FOR THIS .HATE AND ANGER IS HOW THE FAR-LEFT EXTREMISTS OF THE DFA-WHO HAVE ALREADY HIJACKED THE NATIONAL DEMOCRATIC PARTY,WANT TO RIP THE 50TH WARDS CITY COUNCIL SEAT AWAY FROM THE PEOPLE OF THE WARD AND INSTALL THEIR PUPPET,BREWER,TO DO NOT ONLY THE DFA BIDDING BUT ALSO THAT OF AS YET UNSEEN OUTSIDE FORCES.THE DFA IS A FASCIST ORGANIZATION THAT CLAIMS TO BE FOR DEMOCRACY BUT THEY SUCCEED ONLY WHERE THEY SPREAD ANIMOUS AND DISCORD AND THEN THEIR "SAVIOR"CANDIDATE RIDES IN TO "SAVE"THE "PEOPLE-JUST LIKE A SPAGHETTI WESTERN

How much did the 50th end up paying for the construction and de-construction of "Bernie's Wall"?
