Re: “The Joe Moore Show: the 49th Ward

Ben Joravsky, as usual, hits the nail on the head. This race in the 49th ward will be about "big ideas" with a focus and range far beyond the ward's boundaries and "local." Maria Hadden is well-spoken and says the things this left-leaning ward wants to hear. But, can she build a ward office team and do the day-to-day grunt work of dealing with neighbor/landlord disputes, garbage and streets? Why aren't journalists asking these questions to Maria and purely focusing on Joe's record? The questions about his record are very fair and I do appreciate them. But, I feel as a voter I'm in a void of information with regards to the real background and accomplishments of his challenger. I've tried to research what she's concretely done in her non-profit professional work, but really can't find anything solid. Ben and/or Maya, can you help? What relationships does she have with local developers to ensure continued availability of affordable housing? She says this is an important local issue for her, but, what tools or experience does she have to deliver on that promise? Is Joe perfect? Not by a long shot, but he as proven to be quite effective with the "local" needs.

Re: “Best Ethiopian Breakfast

So true! Thanks Sam Worley for giving credit where credit is due. Dawit (David) & Yodit Bakele, the owners of Royal Coffee have an amazing place with amazing food. Yodit's omelets are something to weep over!
