Alderman Anthony Beale has declared war on Englewood Hero

Englewood Political Task Force, P.E.A.C.E, Action Coalition of Englewood, Alderman Toni Foulkes, Alderman Rod Sawyer, and Community Residents will protest the removal of some of the Honorary Hal Baskin Street signs Friday, July 15, 2016, 3:00 PM., at the P.E.A.C.E Community Center. 6455 S Peoria St. Chicago.

On June 22, 2016 an ordinance was introduced in the Chicago City Council bestowing the honor of naming 65th street, between Halsted and Racine, Honorary Hal Baskin St. Signs with the name of Hal Baskin were placed along the designated area Friday July 1st and an official unveiling was held Saturday July 2, 2016.

Now comes word, Alderman Anthony Beale thinks there are too many honorary street signs along 65th Street. The city removed some of the signs today. The community is outraged. “What is the point in doing this after the signs have been printed and placed? asked Darryl Smith, spokesperson for the Englewood Political Task Force. It’s obvious Anthony Beale or someone he’s acting on behalf , has a bone to pick with Hal. This is a total disregard and blatant show of disrespect to the Englewood community and the Aldermen that represent the two wards.

Alderman Beale has angered the many residents of Englewood and throughout the city of Chicago whose lives Hal has touched. Hal has been a living example of what you can do when you turn your life around. If Anthony Beale wants a fight, we will give him one. This time, he have pushed us too far and we will push back..”
