Wheaton's Sanguinetti declares victory as new Illinois lieutenant governor |

WHEATON – Wheaton seems poised to have a familiar elected official serving near the top of the state government, as gubernatorial candidate Bruce Rauner and his lieutenant governor candidate and Wheaton City Council member Evelyn Pacino Sanguinetti have declared victory in their bid to become the leaders of Illinois.

Sanguinetti was viewed as a surprise choice when Rauner announced her as his running mate in October 2013, but has since been a large part of his outreach to both Latino and women voters statewide....

Early on Thursday morning, October 23, 2014, the Google Maps Street View Car was driving around the Chicagoland area mapping streets along the way.  To my surprise, I was walking around town, when I saw the Google Maps Street View back out of a Chicago alley onto Hollywood Avenue, mapping the alleyway and the traffic along Hollywood Avenue off the Lake Shore Drive in the Edgewater area by Lake  Michigan.

The Google Maps Street View Car from California is driving along the Chicagoland area filming street views.  Be ready to be on Google Camera and Smile!

City of Chicago :: Mayor Emanuel To Host Water Quality Summit With Great Lakes Mayors

City of Chicago :: Mayor Emanuel To Host Water Quality Summit With Great Lakes Mayors

Mayor Rahm Emanuel and the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence Cities Initiative today announced that they will be hosting Great Lakes Mayors in Chicago on September 24 for a summit on the protection and preservation of the Great Lakes in the wake of the recent water crisis in Toledo in which residents were instructed not to drink tap water.

“In addition to providing clean drinking water to millions of people, the Great Lakes serve as a critical economic resource for Midwest,” said Mayor Emanuel. “This summit will bring together the leadership of municipalities that depend on this fresh water supply to discuss strategies that will protect this vital water source for years to come.”

The summit will be co-hosted by the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence Cities Initiative, a bi-national organization dedicated to protecting and restoring the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence River. Discussion topics at the summit will include water quality challenges, opportunities to reduce water pollution and potential action items to protect our critical freshwater resources.

“The time for action is now,” said Mayor John Dickert of Racine, chair of the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence Cities Initiative. “The Cities Initiative must work collaboratively with all levels of government to ensure no other city faces a similar crisis with their drinking water. Water is vital and we need to act now to prevent this from happening again.”

The Chicago Department of Water Management, under the direction of Mayor Emanuel, is currently implementing one of the largest investments in water infrastructure in the City’s history. The City is on course to rebuild 1,000 miles of 100 year-old water mains. This investment protects our drinking water and conserves water by reducing the amount of water lost through leaks and water main breaks.

In 2012, Mayor Emanuel announced Sustainable Chicago 2015, featuring water and wastewater as one of seven major sustainability categories. Goals include a decrease of water use by two percent annually, enhanced stormwater management to reduce overflows and basement flooding and protecting water quality and enhancing access to Lake Michigan. In April of this year, Mayor Emanuel announced the first projects to be funded under his $50 million Green Stormwater Infrastructure Strategy, which will incorporate green infrastructure into existing and ongoing capital projects. Green infrastructure will protect the environment, help to reduce flooding and improve the management of rainfall and runoff.

Chicago continues to take major strides to improve the long-term sustainability of its water system and our waterways. These efforts include renewing water infrastructure, conserving water, greening water operations, and sustainably managing stormwater.

Mayor Emanuel’s record in defending the Great Lakes illustrates that protecting Lake Michigan is one of his core priorities. In one of his first acts in Congress, he introduced the Great Lakes Restoration Financing Act of 2003. The bipartisan legislation would create a Great Lakes Advisory Board to evaluate and address the needs of the Great Lakes ecosystem and provide $4 billion in federal funds for Great Lakes’ restoration and revitalization. He also introduced legislation aimed at stopping invasive species introductions, halting sewage contamination, cleaning up toxic pollution and restoring wildlife habitats in the Great Lakes. As President Obama’s chief of staff, Mayor Emanuel helped designate $475 million in federal funding for Great Lakes cleanup and restoration, and allocate $25 million in Recovery Act funding to fight invasive species.
