Why Does Naisy Lie?

If you've met Naisy at all, there's a good chance that you've come away with the same impression. She's eager, she wants you to like her, and she'll do or say whatever to make that happen.

She's a natural politician.

In Chicago, that is not always a good thing. One of the whatevers that Naisy has said involves her length of residency. Again, we discover that Naisy is deliberate in passing off the lie that she's lived in the ward 30 years, or all her life. A friend brought me this piece of literature that was left at his home. It's the same old piece, but with Naisy's signature, which came wrapped in a copied piece aimed at seniors. Her residency-lie is Naisy approved:



Naisy may believe that, in Chicago, it is acceptable to mislead the public. Ald. Stone does it, so why can't she? No one really cares how long she's lived in the ward. It's difficult to understand why Naisy would print up so much campaign literature with such an error unless it was a deliberate attempt to mislead us. We know that it is deliberate given her supporters repetition of the lie. 30 years was repeated over and over. The last Naisy supporter who mentioned it to me was astonished when I said that Naisy must have had a very long bus ride to high school from the neighborhood.

Naisy's apologists are tired of the story that Naisy has attempted to mislead us. Character and integrity may not be something that they look for in a candidate. Honesty may not be a shared value in the community. Other things may be more important. I just can't think of what they are. Can you?

She is terrible… I can not believe she would do this. What is worse is that she thinks we are too stupid to realize that she has lied.

interesting. When other discussion groups in the neighborhood have been 'hijacked' by spammers or people claiming to represent Dolar or community groups organizing candidate forums, all you care about is the missing high school years of one candidate! Your friend must have received the literature that was sent out BEFORE the other ones were corrected. And they have been corrected.

She hasn't lied. She moved here from the Phillipines at age 3, lived here with her family in the 50th ward, went to a local grade school, and moved away with her family when they left the state when she was a teen. Her family always kept her childhood home and she moved back into it when she became an adult. She has lived here as a neighbor of mine for at least ten years. Since this explanation is far too wordy for a campaign brochure, "thirty year resident" pretty much sums it up.

It is clear to me that between Dolar’s lies and Brewer’s bigotry that Stone will win again. It is interesting that people Dolar and Brewer think that they are best people for the job of alderman, when it is clear that they have no idea how to run a campaign let alone a ward in the city of Chicago.

So sorry about letting the spam through. There are two interesting points here that I was trying to make: first of all, Naisy knew that her campaign was misleading the public, and secondly, that it was something that the Dolar campaign was still putting out there.

If this has been corrected, that's terrific.

Willow makes the point I've heard before: it's not really a lie, it is somehow explicable. That's absurd. Just because her family owned a home in the area does not make Naisy a resident. That she feels that she can claim this is what is offensive. If she lived in the neighborhood when she was going to high school, she would not have gone to Rutherford. That the Dolar campaign feels like it can continue to maintain this fabrication demonstrates a lack of honesty and integrity that at least I expect from my elected officials.

If I wanted a liar, I would vote for Ald. Stone.

I think the Brewer campaign needs to reduce your salary, if this is the only mudslinging you can manage against Dolar.

I know several people who moved away (e.g., for school) for a few years. Because their parents kept the house in the neighborhood, they still considered themselves part of it and identified with it. I don't get your obsession with this.

NAISY lies because she has no issues and lying is the FINAL ACT of a desperate campaign.

So one candidate's four years away from her childhood neighborhood(rounded off in years because it's easier to say than 26)are more important than the impending closure of the Dominick's on Ridge,empty storefronts that may or may not have Stone signs plastered all over, lack of programming for poorer youth and seniors in the ward, overcrowded schools, lack of recycling and crazy traffic as well as political intimidation by candidates?? Say it ain't so, JS!!

Years ago, when the Dominicks still existed on Kedzie and Pratt, there was a service that would take seniors to the store to grocery shop. Does this service still exist?

First the service still exist to take seniors to Dominicks, Jewel etc. It run by the Council for Jewish Elderly I believe.
As for the Domonicks closing on Ridge, if you dont get enough business, then the owner Safeway will close it. So I guess lack of shoppers is Stone fault?

If you recall safeway has been having lots of labor problems with their unions. Same unions that support Brewer. Same type of issues that is why it took so long for city union employees to get a new contract. Oh but that Stone fault to?

Lack of programming for youth and seniors. Lets see up I know of after school programs at Boone, the YMCA, The JCC and Park District for youth along with some cultural center on Devon.

As for seniors again the JCC, YMCA, Park District Council for Jewish Elderly but again that Stone Fault.


As for empty store fronts have you ever look at the rent charged by the building owners compared to similiar locations on the Northside? Again thats Stone Fault.

So Brewer, Dolar or any other Alderman can set rent rates?


Naisey can't get how long she has lived in the Ward right, that Stone fault?

The idea that the Dominick's on Ridge is closing because of Union problems is absurd. Anyone who has lived here as long as I have, knows that particular store was a well kept and high quality supermarket up until Safeway bought them. Poor quality produce,too many out of date labled foods and general lack of upkeep followed and as a result forced many nearby residents to grocery shop outside of the ward. The fact that the Dominick's on Kedzie,the Jewel on Howard and Western have closed before this latest one without any replacement for the 50th ward speaks volumes about the lack of advocacy and leadership of the current alderman.
By the way I've seen Stone shop at the Lincolnwood Dominick's and that store employs many of the "problem" union workers that used to work on Ridge.

Last time I looked the programming for seniors On LIMITED INCOMES was at Levy Center on Lawrence. To use JCC or YMCA (not cheap-PARK District is great but the classes fill up and they don't have enough staff)which may have scholarships requires asking for them and some may not want to do that. Why can't the programs that exist at city centers be expanded to the area that people ACTUALLY live in? The cold weather does not make it practical for people to go out of the ward to take advantage of the services. Ditto for the library. It's well-used and could benefit from an expansion.

That Dominicks as a whole has had union problems ever since it was bought by Safeway. Safeway over paid forthe company and tried unsuccessfully to see Dominicks about 1.5 years ago.

The Ridge store closed because it was loosing Money, but I suppose that is Stone Fault? That location is not verg good for retail as there is nor public transportation.
If you have not noticed Dominicks has closed about 30 stores in the last 2 years.

You said "Poor quality produce,too many out of date labled foods and general lack of upkeep" is one reason for lack of shoppers. But that is Stone Fault?


Safeway brough on their own problem with the unions, over paying and poor business decisions but that is Stone Fault


As for senior programs, I believe the Department of Aging is opening a center at Warren Park soon which will probvide programs..and Yes that one is Berny Fault or I should say his doing.

Anon,you're having a problem following my argument as well as spelling poorly with your posts. You stated that unions were the problem with the closing of the Dominick's on Ridge. What I'm saying is that the employees at the Dominick's at Lincolnwood, the Dominick's at Gateway Crossing in the 49th ward, and the Jewel in Evanston operate under the same salary structure as the 3 stores that have closed in the 50th. If Stone wants to run as an alderman who throws up his hands and says "I have no control" over a situation where a ward that has over 50,000 residences should expect no major supermarkets in their ward....well good luck with that platform.

the labor problems between the union(s) that represent the employee at Dominicks and Safeway along with Safeway's poor business decisions have caused safeway to close almost 30 stores in the last few years. If you have poor products, poor service and growing competition, you loose custumers. The Ridge Store was loosing Money.

Sorry but that not Stone fault. However I did hear Alderman Stone speak in the closing and he said that he is working on find a replacement retailer.

I can tell you first handing experience being involved in lease negotiations, you can't make such information public. So no Alderman Stone is not throwing up his hand but working as he always does.

But please continue to blame Alderman Stone for all of your problems.
