Ald. Brookins on CAN-TV's Political Forum...

[VIDEO] He appears with host Dartesia Pitts taking about a variety of topics and especially about the ward remap. I'm sure many of you have your own thoughts about this subject, but no need to get hostile. Especially since many of us are unhappy with the recently adopted map.

EDIT: He gives a special shoutout to the residents of the Sixth Ward who have been vocal to their opposition to the ward remap. This was in response to a caller question about the remap who noted that years ago the   21st ward used to go all the way to Cottage Grove. Also under Eugene Sawyer, the 6th went no further south than 87th during the 1980s under Mayors Washington and Sawyer as noted by Ald. Brookins.

OH and Worlee's comments on EveryBlock as "Concerned Citizen's of Chatham" with a question about constructing a bridge over the Dan Ryan at 85th Street. This was fielded by Ald. Brookins!

Another question from EveryBlock about why Brookins didn't take any part of Englewood and left the natural boundaries of Chatham along State Street on the east side of the Dan Ryan. The question suggested that Brookins was dismissive of the wishes of Chatham residents.


  1. Sixth Ward Blog = gutless pussy.
    That is why you're bitch-azzed ward got played in the remap.
    Censor this, bitch !
    Or be the coward that you are and post it without the opportunity for rebuttal.

    Now let THAT go, hoe!

  2. Casey we know that's you! You're commenting under an anonymous handle which makes you even more of a punk. If you stop trolling and have something worthwhile to say then maybe your retorts are worth a rebut. For now however, I'll just have to settle for showing off your stupidity or cowardliness!

  3. Well Anon- what is your real beef here? It's not the remap and not that former Alderman Lyle lost.
