A quote from Joe Moore's website "He is a full-time alderman who puts in long hours to ensure he and his staff provide quality service and advocacy for all the residents, businesses and other stake-holders in the 49th Ward. A fighter for peace and justice, Joe works hard to maintain a diverse and vibrant community where everyone has a voice in decisions that affect them."
Peace and Justice! Let's not forget the recent stabbings that occurred on his block. Crime is on the rise, and you are working full time and you can't stop it? My Grandfather was an Alderman, and back in his time, he had a regular job and was still able to serve the citizens of his town. Are you too good to work along side the common man! Of course why would you, when you have a recession proof job, that pays you $100 grand a year, plus whatever you get in donations. Also, I'd like to add that Joe Moore's inability to save a Rogers Park Icon "The Adelphi Theater" in spite of a grass roots organization of Roger Park , who wanted to preserve this Rogers Park gem and offered to buy it. Instead, Joe Moore catered to the Greedy Land Developers, and now what is left is this dangerous gang playground, graffiti and junk filled pit where this fine Landmark "The Adelphi" used to exist. So you don't listen and serve all the citizens of Rogers Park. See citizen video here,

"There was very little fire at all. Our guys did a good job, did the best they could, but she was already dead," Chicago Fire Chief James Thompson said at the scene. "We're still investigating the cause, but we did find smoking materials around where she was, and that may have something to do with it," he said.

Here here, Mr. Morton. I can't get over it either
jackiejaeger, I do not believe that we should get over it.
The demolition of the Adelphi Theater was not only a tragedy that destroyed culture, history and architectural beauty in Rogers Park.
Alderman Joe Moore's blind support of the demolition shows his lack of screening and research of developers who are altering our community. This particular developer has a long history of foreclosures and unfinished projects.
These misinformed decisions have created a pattern of unsecure demolition sites throughout our neighborhood.
Developer donations of thousands of dollars to the Citizens for Joe Moore organization only fuels this real issue.
Getting over it allows career politicians like Joe Moore to keep getting re-elected year after year. He banks on the general public being unconcerned or complacent about earlier issues by election day, which allows this behavior to continue for an extended four years.
