Kirk/Rush tours the Englewood neighborhood

Via Sen. Kirk's Instagram
The pic to the left shows US Congressman Bobby Rush and US Senator Mark Kirk listening to Englewood families during their neighborhood tour yesterday. It appears they still disagree on some of the solutions, they at least publicly vow to solve the issues that exist in Englewood. During their tour there was no press and it was by bus with a police escort.

Below are some various videos of coverage of this tour. NBC Chicago has the concluding press conference.

CBS Chicago had a remote from 63rd/Halsted with Sen. Kirk and Rep. Rush

ABC 7's Charles Thomas also reported on the tour of Englewood

Finally FOX 32 also reported on this tour the video here was film before the tour was scheduled to start

We shall see if any lasting solutions will come of this tour from two of our representatives from Washington. Hopefully more resources will come in for that community. Resources to work on the crime and of course resources that will provide for more economic development. And I also expect that the many community orgnizations that exist in Englewood will continue to work hard for that neighborhood as well.
