    Kudos to our Elgin City Manager for mastering Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/cityofelgin) and Twitter (@ElginIL) to give us residents live updates from 3:00pm 02/01 thru current times 02/02. Our automated phone calls from EPD worked well to inform in the past 24-hours as well! The snow crews are doing a fine job clearing our streets, our residents are banding together to clear sidewalks and driveways… I am very proud of Elgin today!

  2. I’m with LF! The facebook updates have been great! Not getting the EPD calls, but then again, our land line is messed up right now. Streets are being cleared much better and faster than I had imagined and I think every sidewalk on my block is passable now. Great job, Elgin!

    I find it a little sad this valentines day to see 5 full pages of foreclosure notices in the Courier News for Elgin, yet only 1/2 a page related to jobs. “It gets better” - right? It obvious many in Elgin are suffering this winter and are part of the ‘unseen’ majority in this troubled economy.

      So true, Gibster. The media trumpets the idea that we’re in “recovery” and we’re supposed to believe it just because they say so even when the opposite is true…Sound like 1984 to me.

    I am humbled and honored to be part of the city council election this year. I am not on Facebook. However, I’d like to invite you to find out more about me on my campaign website: http://www.chinforcitycouncil.com I notified Chuck Keysor that I was not able to attend the OCTAVE Forum due to my unexpected hospitalization. I look forward to meeting and having more conversation with you.
