Ending the Occupation

RPB prediction: Joe Moore, incumbent Alderman and known violator of campaing law, will face a run-off elelction in April after getting less than 50% of the votes cast in today's election.

The run-off will be between Moore and either Democrat Jim Ginderske or fellow challenger Don Gordon. While it is no secret that I support Mr. Ginderske, at this point I would be foolish to say which of the two men will face off against Moore. Both have run strong campaigns. Both are to be congratulated.

Time will tell, and time is now very short. The long wait for a Free 49th Ward and the end to the Moore Occupation may finally become reality. The ward has waited 16 years. Ginderske or Gordon, either way we will be better off without the corrupt, time wasting, heavy handed Joe Moore. May God Help Us All.

The Chicago Tribune and the Chicago Magazine named Chicago News Bench one of Chicago's best blogs in 2008. (It was called "Rogers Park Bench" at the time.)

"[Chicago News Bench] opines on Rogers Park and the 49th Ward in his fiery blog, RogersParkBench.Blogspot.com. His mix of cynicism and skepticism targets public figures such as Mayor Daley and Alderman Joe Moore." ~ The List: The best the Web has to offer Chicago, Chicago Magazine, Feb 2008

"Great example of hyperlocal news coverage" ~ Mark Josephson, CEO, Outside.in

"The Bench is a terrific blog, covering issues from the national to the regional and very local (Rogers Park), and is a thumping good read." ~ Chicago Bungalow
