Re: “Marty Quinn, 13th Ward

I am a CPS teacher at Hubbard (in the 13th ward), a resident of the 13th ward, and a full-on taxpayer. During our recent strike, I called Mr. Quinn's office and lo and behold!! He returned my call!! He told me how he sided with the teachers (his wife is a clinician in CPS, he explained, and his family has many CTU members, he explained). I appreciated his support, and invited him to join us on the picket line the next day or any future day during our strike. He politely? declined, saying he didn't want to "put himself out there," but reassured me he supported the teachers. After all, he said, he hadn't signed the letter to the union attempting the call off the strike. I invited him again to join us on the line, right near 63rd and Pulaski (under the Big Indian...), and he declined again, saying he didn't want to get involved.

Just the facts, ma'am.
