The incumbent of Ward 49 continues to have spiritual revelations. He led the battle to stop the war in Iraq. He led the battle to ban selling foie gras from his deep concern for the ducks of the world. He has campaigned far and wide for his beliefs. Daring to go where no alderman has gone before, our incumbent defied the law of the land. He led the battle charge for the ‘big box’ or living wage. Defying the ultimate master, Mayor Daley, our incumbent demanded better CTA service for us.
He found a higher spirit recently in the confines of the storefront church of Good News where he attended the whole service. So profoundly was he moved by the spirit, he dropped a check for an unknown amount in the offering basket.
The day before, the Lincoln Park residents, owners of Jamaica Jerk, were empowered by the incumbent’s courage. Spirit moved them to serve a breakfast buffet for our low income neighbors to deepen the bond and guide the incumbent to another level. Since it’s a ‘progressive’ spirituality, catering has replaced fishes and loaves. A New Age has truly dawned on Rogers Park.
As hundreds of us witnessed on WTTW, Joe gives back to the community. The Spirit has banished the days of patronizing those less fortunate with a meal for a vote. Gone too are the days of accepting money from developers. The pay to play mentality has been cleansed from his politics. He will go forth with the strength, courage and the will to say NO to anyone with a checkbook. Gone too is the mentality of disregarding election laws.
Going forward, stepping into a church on an election year will be for spiritual cleansing to receive guidance. As in the days of yore, the fasting and vigil before being knighted by the king, our incumbent has humbled himself before the Spirit.
The cleansing of the soul, the epiphany of Joe Moore
As the winds of winter pound the waves of Lake Michigan against the shore, roses bloom in the midst of Rogers Park.
Spirit, guide our incumbent to the next level…Citizen Joe.
