In 2008, Ald. Joe Moore, 49th, asked Duncan's office to reconsider an admissions case involving the relative of one of President Barack Obama's campaign advisers. The student's application to a prestigious public prep school was rejected, and the family said it was because he had missed too much school after falling ill with mononucleosis.
Hope, Change and the usual excuses.
Contrast that Progressive Butt Kisser's weasel work to that of a real elected official.
Helping a working man get an education for his kid is what being an elected official is all about.
Tom Tunney is a solid guy!
Joe Moore is a Progressive Gas-bag and Fois Gras Foe. Do the Math . . .well that is if you went to a Catholic school.
Ald. Tom Tunney, 44th, said that in 2008 he tried unsuccessfully to help the doorman of a condominium building in his ward get his daughter into Gwendolyn Brooks College Preparatory Academy.
The man, who does not live in the 44th Ward, was one of Tunney's employees in the early 1980s.
"He asked me for help. … He had said to his daughter, ‘If you get good grades, someday you will be able to go to Gwendolyn Brooks.' She got good grades and didn't get in," Tunney said. "I know the family. They are very poor. They have never been supporters of mine or anything like that. I was trying to help an impoverished kid."
That is what being an elected official is all about.
