Rep. Guzzardi rips Ald. Moreno for mailer

Friday, Feb 8, 2019

* Ald. Moreno mailer…

* Rep. Will Guzzardi (D-Chicago)…

Alderman Joe Moreno recently sent campaign literature that included my name and likeness. The alderman did not receive, nor did he request, my consent to appear in this mailer. And while the statement made in the piece is factually correct — he did support my campaign in 2014 — I believe the mailer makes a misleading implication. I have not endorsed Alderman Moreno’s re-election campaign. I have been increasingly troubled in recent years by both his personal and his professional conduct. I urge voters in the First Ward not to confuse my appearance in Moreno’s literature with my support for his candidacy.

Moreno, of course, has a few other problems to deal with.

…Adding… Press release…

Today, in response to State Representative Will Guzzardi’s statement indicating Joe Moreno had not received his endorsement for reelection or even permission to use his likeness in a mailer sent to 1st Ward voters, 1st Ward Aldermanic candidate Daniel La Spata, released the following statement:

“Joe Moreno continues to make news this week for all the wrong reasons. It’s shameful that he’s trying to mislead 1st Ward voters and distract from his record of selling out our ward by engaging in the machine-style politics that have held this city back. But he’s not fooling anyone.

“1st Ward voters see right through his misdirection and excuses. They know Moreno’s failed record and they’ve seen his character, especially over the last week. That’s why in 18 days they’re going to throw him out of office and support my campaign. Our ward needs an alderman focused on making housing affordable and improving our schools, not one constantly distracted by personal problems and controversies.”

    Actually , Alderman Moreno’s problems are bigger than what’s he’s been making news lately on. Being a distinguished member of Chicago’s Zoning Committee along with Alderman Solis and Alderman Burke has occupational risks…

    Wow i like it when a guy steps out and tells the truth. Good for him. Proco must mean self destruction

    Unsurprising. He ran a candidate against Delia Ramirez and resorted to just about every underhanded trick you could. He gave her $100k. And she still lost by 30 points. I’m not sure why there isn’t a more credible candidate running against him.

    That is a highly educated ward, and I’m sure they’re all hearing about their upstanding Alderman.

    =while the statement made in the piece is factually correct=

    Rep. Guzzardi is a public figure. The Alderman said he supported “progressive outsiders” like Guzzardi and Kaegi (how one can call Fox an outsider/progressive is beyond me) and put out a mailer to drive that home. I see nothing wrong with this piece.

    That is not saying I support Proco. But c’mon, this is politics. Why are people getting so soft in the political arena?

    Proco Joe still has the coveted Chicago Tribune and Chicago Sun-Times endorsements.


  8. - Paoli - Friday, Feb 8, 19 @ 1:51 pm:

    The Sun Times also endorsed Marty Quinn - statesman exemplar of intelligence and virtue in public service.


  9. - Levois - Friday, Feb 8, 19 @ 2:27 pm:

    Yeah Ald. Moreno over the years seem quite big on abusing his power as an Alderman. Mr. “you will be on your knees begging”.


  10. - TopHatMonocle - Friday, Feb 8, 19 @ 2:31 pm:

    Reminds me of when Ira Silverstein mailed a piece with Lou Lang’s endorsement, only for Lang to say “Hey I didn’t endorse you, but now I am endorsing your opponent”. Even after all this I’d still bet on Moreno winning big.


  11. - Three Dimensional Checkers - Friday, Feb 8, 19 @ 2:35 pm:

    Moreno is irredeemably horrible, but it will be very hard for La Spata to beat him in February with no money. Stranger things have happened, but I doubt it. I wonder why more of the many previous also-rans in the ward didn’t throw their hat in there again.


  12. - Steve - Friday, Feb 8, 19 @ 2:43 pm:

    Moreno may win but this will probably be his last full term. He’ll probably be busy with other matters dealing with a different branch of government.


  13. - Suburbanon - Friday, Feb 8, 19 @ 3:17 pm:

    Proco is a Pandora’s box of trouble. The car is only the tip of the iceberg. He is the “Progressive“ version of the Chicago way. Same story, different cover.


  14. - Fax Machine - Friday, Feb 8, 19 @ 3:30 pm:

    Moreno is not wrong - he did stand up to Berrios by being one of the first elected officials to endorse Guzzardi and Kaegi and he has every right to make that known.

    He probably should have included a subtext under the pictures saying use of the images does not imply endorsement by the individuals.


  15. - Three Dimensional Checkers - Friday, Feb 8, 19 @ 3:50 pm:

    How can a person charge their own campaign fund for “consulting?” Does this involve a lot of third person talking?

    =Proco Joe still has the coveted Chicago Tribune and Chicago Sun-Times endorsements. =

    He’ll need to very selectively quote that Sun-Times endorsement. Probably should leave out the parts that say he’s “annoying” and “silly” and should “dial it down”, and that they’ll be watching that “stolen” car story.
