ED, District 209 comments [D209]

Today District 209 held a press conference for the new sign at PMSA. Did anybody go?

Also, tonight's board meeting will interview superintendent candidates.


  • why in the hell do they need a press conferance to announve changes to the school sign?????
    Who is in charge of the asylum called 209????
    When will Yarbrough, along with the Mayors of Proviso stand up to Welch and Libbka and tell them to stop there antics, and to stop the public barrage of worthless propaganda, and start spending time,money and energy in educating the Children????

  • Well ever since Bozo retired, everyone has been looking for a replacement,now finally we have found them, Welch is Bozo and Libkka is Cookie!
    Good graces, it's the Bozo show at 209,led by our favorite clowns Bozo(welch) and Cookie(Libbka)!

  • What about Lightford on WVON talking nonsense about the politics in Proviso, but was reluctant to denounce how the board members have stolen from our children. She had the nerve to get upset with the caller for asking a valid question! WHY?
    Lightford should be upset and MAD ASS HELL with the politcans that have raped this community and educational system!

    The schools she attended as a child are now failing future generations. Ms. Lightfoot don't get mad at your constinueints...JUST DO SOMETHING!

    She is pitiful! Why does she have so many solutions to the Chicago school system, but can't manage to fix her own!? I am so tired of these two bit BLACK POLITICANS!

  • Lightford is the most useless hack,welfare queen in politics today! She should consider filling in the gap between her teeth, because she can't help it that she can't fill that large empty area between her ears!
    Stupid is, what stupid says, what stupid does=Lightford!!!!

  • Carl, I request that the last two blogs posted be removed immediately. Immediately.

  • Do not remove the comments in question!

    If these people are put on blast for the world to see...then maybe they will decide to do the right thing and actually do meaningful work with the community in mind...

    Lightford and Welch's records will follow them through out their political careers...and rightfully so!

  • The most appropriate way to address criticism is to rebut it or ignore it.

  • To State Senator Lightford,
    Can you please outline what you believe is the problems for the failings schools in your district, specifically in your own home town of Maywood,such as district 89 and 209 ? Also add in what the problem is at district 88?????
    Also what commen sense solution do you have to help remediate those problems in our district??/
    Do you agree that we should have a CEO of education(Libbka) and not a qualifies superindent? What's your taske on hiring individuals with previous arrest records to work in schools??? Do think it's to little for the taxpayers to spend over $14,000 per pupil in 209?? What role should school boards have in dictating school issues....Hiring employees(such as janitors) ?
    Do you think the current board majority at 88,89 and 209 have done a good job or a bad job, and why??
    Please respond,because all of maywood and proviso want to hear your take on the situation, since you are the head of the Senate on education!

    By Anonymous Lightford please respond, at 4:43 PM, August 02, 2006  

  • I am still waiting for Lightford's response. I guess she has no reponse!I guess she thinks 209,89 and 88 are running just fine, by her no reponse she says it all!

  • Waiting for Lightford's response is like waiting for Godot. We will probably see Halley's Comet again before Lightford responds to anything. SHe might respond right before her next electtion, like she always does, pop up six months before the election to be the phony ass she truly is.

    She will never come through for our community. She stated on WVON that she meets with the superintendents of the community, and I believed she named Cynthia Broughton's name. Well, yeah Lightford will meet with her to cash the check Broughton gave her for her campaign. Also, it is a shame the teachers union gave Lightford so much money. What in the hell has she done for her own damn community. She can talk a good game about Chicago schools and have remedies for CPS, but what about her own closet. She has too many skeletons in her own closet to clean it out. She is a HUSTLER just like her mentor Gene Moore.

    I can't believe someone as honorable as Rev. Meeks can't see right through her.

  • It's not reasonable to expect a public official to respond to a question on Proviso Probe unless s/he is participating in the particular discussion in question.

    I invite you to make written queries of Sen. Lightford and other officials. If you send me a copy and the subject seems newsworthy and the questions respectful, I may post them to Proviso Probe to help raise the issues publicly.
