The most recent Block Captain meeting featured local and state politicians. Scheduled to arrive but MIA was 10th ward alderman Joe Vollmer. In attendance, Senator Jeff Smith, State Rep 67th District, Mike Daus and 15th ward alderwoman, Jennifer Florida.

An announcement was made about the next meeting scheduled for November 19th which will showcase neighborhood talent: artists, musicians and crafts people will be showing and have their work for sale. 10% of the sales will be donated to the block captain fund.

Block Captain Kim Cole.
Still my hero.

Tim Garret, TGS resident talked about his gallery storefront that will be opening on Morgan Ford Road next month.


Jennifer Florida, 15th ward alderwoman, was excited to see me with a camera. Oh good, she said, I don't have a picture of me with Jeff. Whew, had she leaned any further to the left she would have been in the his lap.

J-Flo was using a crutch and bets flew around the room: Would she continue to appear in public with it until after the next election? I don't live in J-Flo's ward and if I did, I would have sign the recall petition. I have extensive issues with J-Flo as an alderwoman. Her defunct blog http://jenniferflorida.wordpress.com/ says it all and that all is nada.

Mike Daus, (TGS homeboy) took the lead and talked about his responsibilities as State Rep for the 67th ward. He politely resisted Jennifer Florida's attempt to go off point and start an unrelated argument. http://67thdistrict.blogspot.com/

Senator Jeff Smith looking more like a rock star then a politician. If you haven't seen the film, get it quick http://www.mrsmithmovie.com/

Jeff talked about three recent bills; Social Security, Education, and the Economic Development Package - He voted in support of Paul McKee which will ensure he won't get reelected (according to word on the street)

Steve Smith of the Royale is in the back standing next to Jan Clinite.
Mike Colona is in the foreground, he's going to run for State Rep, 67th ward (Mike Daus will be termed out in '08)
