The Chicago City Council Zoning Committee effectively put a hold on Ward 45 Alderman John Arena's plans for a much-debated high-rise apartment complex in his Jefferson Park neighborhood because after a seven-hour meeting, not enough panel members were still around to vote recently.
Barry Bebart was recently appointed 39th Deputy Ward Republican committeeman for the Northwest Side GOP Club, reported club Chairman Matt Podgorski.
A group of Jefferson Park area residents have formed a political action committee in hopes of unseating Ward 45 Alderman John Arena in 2019.
The Northwest Side GOP Club has built a base from which to go after Democratic domination in the city: a new downtown office that it will share with Niles Township GOP members and from which conservative candidates in state and local elections can launch their campaigns.
Some politicians try to catch flies with honey. Chicago Ald. John Arena (D-45th) douses them with vinegar.
