COUNTDOWN TO THE SHOWDOWN By Mary L. Datcher

DEFENDER STAFF REPORTER

It’s clear that there is no “love lost” between Mayor Rahm Emanuel and Cook County Board Commissioner Jesus ‘Chuy’ Garcia as both men battle for Chicagoans’ vote on April 7. Between the multiple endorsements from various community and union organizations as well as legislative leaders, the dance these two are doing to get the Black vote would make a call girl blush! Over the weekend, both candidates attended the Black Women’s Expo and talked to the audience, predominately women of color ranging from grandmothers to young adults. Each candidate arrived well-timed (so as not to run into each other) but in enough time to leave a crowd of well-wishers behind. On Saturday evening, the mayor attended the DuSable Museum of African American History’s “Night of 100 Stars Gala” along with Governor Bruce Rauner, both working the black socialites and business leaders. But for the last few days, the mayoral candidates have debated their viewpoints over a series of discussions to appeal to the mainstream audience and also specifically the Black community. Is there such a thing as a “Black and Brown” coalition or alliance in Chicago? Last week’s Mayoral Forum held at Chicago State University (CSU) was the only public platform where both candidates appeared to address a predominately Black audience separately. There was a minimal turnout of about 300 people that showed up at CSU. As people

Tension was in the air. The only forum that specifically addressed the African-American community and involved both candidates was almost cancelled due to a pending confirmation from the Emanuel camp; however, the invitation was accepted on the day of the event. Moderated by ABC7 political analyst and reporter Charles Thomas, he was aided by a panel of CSU’s professors and students who had a set of questions to address both mayoral candidates. The panel included CSU professor of Af-

BUSINESS

Lessons Learned:

“The Bidness of Spin” By Mary L. Datcher Darlene Jackson aka DJ Lady D is one of the most sought after DJs in Chicago who happens to be a woman. Walk into Chicago’s House of Blues Foundation Room on a weekend night and the first thing that hits you when you exit the elevator is the melodic, soulful house grooves that resonate throughout the intimate room. Behind its DJ set-up is a petite, beautiful, caramel skinned woman rocking tight coiffed locks, looking chic and in control of the equipment and the music. Currently, Lady D celebrates the 20th anniversary of her career and will be embarking on a summer tour to promote her new music project, “All Night Long” on Carillo Music. When she’s not producing or spinning at an event, you can find Lady D teaching young girls ages six to 16 the art of being a DJ for the non-profit organization, Girls Rock! Chicago, where she’s been on staff for the past seven years. We caught up with the busy mom, producer, songwriter and record label owner to get a deeper perspective on the lifestyle of a female DJ. CD: How did you get into the music business? Lady D: I had a few friends around me and I had equipment at the house. My son’s father was a DJ. He was always out and I was always home so I began to teach myself some things and learned how to play. I had a friend who is a big promoter in New York now but she and I used to get together and play. She was promoting DJs at this shoe store, Soul Junkie, over at Clark and Belmont. So one day, she invited me to play and I did. A lot of promoters that day came down to see me. Charles Little was one of promoters who saw me. He ran

a promotions company called PURE. PURE was the biggest thing back then; they had all of the club spots and threw the raves. He saw me that day and said, ‘You are amazing and highly marketable! You are going to be a star!’ So after that, he started booking me -- everywhere. I began to get a reputation around Chicago and then a reputation around the Midwest. Afterwards, I began to travel nationally and then internationally. CD: How did that transition to doing production? Lady D: The things that I did production-wise were more collaborative. I was working with Ron Carroll, Mark Grant, Demarcos Lewis. Working as a writer and poet, lending my pieces to production. Spending time in the studio, I began to learn things myself as well. Especially around 1999 to 2000, I got a job at a record label, SHR -- Strictly Head Recording also known as Underground Construction music. I ran a label for Deep House called After Hours. Through observation, I learned a lot of stuff. That’s when software began to be more ‘user friendly’ and easier to manipulate. CD: What have been some of your challenges being a Black female DJ in the business? Lady D: Well, as a woman there’s always a challenge in being taken seriously. People want to know your ability before you’re asked to come on board. With a man, there’s an assumption that you already know what he’s doing. With a woman it’s, ‘Do you know what you’re doing?’ I try to establish upfront what my experience and pedigree are because without that, you get it from the security guy too. Being a Black person, there’s certain expectations to play for your own community. But also being a Black person who has always been down with my community. I’ve been able

Darlene Jackson to cross a lot of boundaries and cover a lot of ground. I have never ‘pigeon holed’ myself from the very beginning. If I was asked to play a rave, I didn’t say no. if I was asked to play at lounges, I didn’t say no. If was asked to play at festivals, I didn’t say no. I did it all.

Chicago’s Female Spin Doctor: DJ

By Mary L. Datcher When you talk about DJs that have a very unique and eclectic taste in their music, there are many that will claim that style but few can blend in a way that elevates the room. DJ Fathom falls into this lane where

her unique style of blending soulful beats, old school B-side tracks with current favorites allows her to stand on her own. Fathom was one of the first female Black DJs that began to develop a name for herself in the trendy Chicago Northside bars and nightclubs almost 20 years ago. She has maintained her visibility through branding and merchandising over the years and continues to spin at key parties and special events. Having to work as a DJ in a market that has an abundance of male DJs, it hasn’t always been an easy road for her. We caught up with DJ Fathom to talk about her journey and how she continues to maintain her visibility in a challenging profession. CD: How did you start out spinning as a DJ? DJF: I was introduced to turntables in the basement of my boyfriend’s house. At the time, we were in high school and his brother was a DJ. I tried to blend records and that’s what lured me in after that. Also, Lil Louis made me want to make people feel like he made me feel through music, during his residency at Medusas. CD: What is your inspiration behind selecting your playlist?

4 April 1-7, 2015 • THE CHICAGO DEFENDER

DJF: I have digital crates that I add to and pull music from, unless it’s for a special event or project. As I spin, I’m always thinking of random tunes that will lend more to the musical experience. CD: Why is Chicago considered a ‘break or make’ city for DJs? DJF: Chicago breeds DJs. However, compared to other cities, our rate of success isn’t great enough. I don’t think Chicago really sees being as DJ as more than a hobby -- to have us be known for ‘making’ it. We need more DJs to be successful at leveraging their brands to maximize on bigger opportunities, as well as sharing their blueprints in order to have others win. It means my work is not done so I’m now inspired by this. CD: How do you create balance for yourself? DJF: I don’t know if one who is in pursuit of changing how things ‘work’ for the artistry of the DJ can quite balance it. I’m focused on taking care of my spiritual, mental and physical health. Eating healthier, getting exercise and simply resting have become very important to me. CD: What have been some of the

Fathom

challenges as a female in a male dominated industry? DJF: I’ve been blessed and cursed by being associated with some of Chicago’s best male DJs. My experience has been challenging, not because men don’t think you’re good; it’s because some are very insecure about sharing the lane with females. I’ve seen some of my colleagues more interested in what you can ‘do’ for them over how we can build a more significant presence for our scene. I am finally getting to a place with some big brothers who are interested in collaborating for the betterment of Chicago and its music scene. CD: Are there some upcoming projects that you’re working on? DJF: My goal at this point is to bring all of my brands and art together, in a multi-media, dimensional fashion. I’m working on original music, writing and producing, as well as visual arts. I’m also learning more about the industry and furthering my business reach in the hopes of positioning myself and to be able to mentor younger people -- especially young girls who are coming up and want to pursue entrepreneurship and create music brands. www.chicagodefender.com

JUST A LITTLE R_E_S_P_E_C_T!

E NOTES By Kai EL’Zabar

Defender Executive Editor Is it me or did last week appear to be the Black American Forgiveness Week? It was an amusing spectacle featuring Common, Mo’ne Davis, Oklahoma State Senator Anastasia Pittman and Isaac Hill, president of the OU Black Student Association forgiving white people for heinous behavior committed against Blacks that evolves out of the insidious racism that is woven into the social fiber of American culture. The newsworthy incident involved Levi Pettit, one of the leaders of the University of Oklahoma fraternity, as captured on video participating in a fiery execution of a traditional racist chant about the fraternity’s pride that it will never have a “nigger” member. Pettit was expelled from publicly Oklahoma and the Sigma Alpha Epsilon chapter was shut down. But Pettit made a public performance of his apparent regret, stepping before lights, cameras and microphones last Thursday in Oklahoma City to tell the world how “deeply sorry” he was. I couldn’t help but think, “Yeah right.” Truth is he was caught on video, reprimanded publicly and for that he’s regretful. I doubt very seriously if he laments what he and his fraternity apparently embrace as purity. The point is, will they be nominating any Black candidates soon/next year? I think not and if they do, I hope that Blacks have enough self-respect and pride to say, “Thanks, but no thanks.” Now the Levi Pettit incident followed just a few days after Mo’ne Davis asked Bloomsburg University to reinstate baseball player Joey Casselberry who was kicked off the baseball team for calling her a “slut” in a tweet after it was announced that Disney will do a movie about Mo’. As classy as her publicly expressed compassion was, the university refused to reinstate him. As they should—to have reinstated him would have been an acknowledgement of condoning such behavior. So rapper/actor Common, who portrayed the Reverend James L. Bevel in Selma is now a civil rights leader? One would think so after he sorely offered that racism could be ended

if Black people could “forget about the past” and extend a “hand in love” to white people. What? Have we not always done that? Phaleeze! I am thoroughly disappointed. Why should we forget our past that seems to repeat itself over and over? Forgiving does not call for us to publicly pardon them or acknowledge their plea for we are not the source, but rather their God to whom they seek forgiveness. We forgive others for our own salvation, not theirs. While some Blacks were moved by these demonstrations of the forgiving hearts that many of us possess, others noted that apologies are often empty and usually motivated by self-interest unlike the innocence of Mo’ne who is just a child in this arena of wolves. Be very clear about the foundation upon which these acts -- whether they are the police murderous brutality against unarmed Blacks, the blatant disrespect of President Barack Obama or the diarrhea of the mouth spewing their hatred towards Black people -- is built. They feel comfortable and safe to act and speak accordingly because steeped in Catholicism from which modern day Christianity evolved, is the belief that upon their deathbed they can ask God for forgiveness and all is forgiven. When Jesus was nailed to the cross, next to him also sentenced to death by crucifixion were two thieves, one who accepted God at the hand of Jesus and was forgiven his sins. Throughout history we have witnessed white men seeking forgiveness upon death after they have done the most horrendous of crimes, including acts during the Crusades, the Holocaust, the African slave trade, the Civil Rights movement and acts against children, homosexuals and women. Crusaders would force pregnant women to accept Jesus then cut their babies out of their wombs only to kill the women after they suffered both pain and loss. We are well acquainted with the sort of crimes they committed during slavery and the Holocaust and continue to do. So pardon me if it appears that centuries of living under the weight of racial terrorism have conditioned Blacks to respond kindly to any gestures seemingly apologetic or remorse on the part of whites even when it’s not authentic. I say, forget the apology; what are we going to do about it? I mean how do we teach our children that we don’t give a D_ _ _ about what they think about us. We don’t care to be legitimized or sanctioned by them. Just respect us. In other words I don’t care that Petit said, “I am sorry, deeply sorry for all the pain that I caused. Although I don’t deserve it, I want to ask for your forgiveness. I will be deeply sorry and deeply ashamed for what I have done for the rest of my life.” Our work is not with these people. Clearly our work is with ourselves and each moment like this just informs me that we have a lot self-forgiveness and love to work on.

If one can say their life was an open book, then LisaRaye McCoy would probably agree that hers has been on display ever since she made her feature film debut as Diamond in the Ice Cube directed film, The Player’s Club, nearly 18 years ago. Since then, we’ve witnessed her acting career gradually gain momentum from the large screen playing opposite Omar Epps in The Wood and other films -- RhapLisaRaye McCoy sody, All About You and Go for Broke. Her most familiar connection to households is her role as Neesee James in the CW sitcom, All of Us which had a comfortable run for almost five years. During this time, she never missed a beat as the first lady of Turks and Caicos Islands, married to Michael Misick, the island’s first-ever premier. After a very public and messy divorce in 2008, the Chicago native immediately brushed herself off and dove into her work. Through her entrepreneurial spirit, she’s had her own reality show, launched a jeans collection and hair care line, as well as segueing into the romantic comedy series, Single Ladies on VH1. Just recently, she can also add ‘director’ to her long laundry list of talent. In February, McCoy made her directorial debut with the independent film release of Skinned at the Pan African Film Festival in Los Angeles. Sharing co-director credits with Avery O. Williams, a writer-director and professor at Morehouse College, the film was produced by fellow Chicago native Sharon Tomlinson of Studio 11 Films, Divine Entertainment International and Lot 10 Productions. It also features Van Vicker, Jasmine Burke (Drum Line 2), Brad James (Tyler Perry’s For Better or Worse), Drew Sidora (The Game, Step Up, Crazy Sexy Cool) and newcomer, Cycerli Ash. Shot in Atlanta, Skinned tells the story of Jolie, a young girl who is so uncomfortable in her own skin and the stigma of what so-

ciety places on dark skin that she uses skin lightening creams to alter her complexion. The film is slated to be released in select theaters nationally. We talked with McCoy on her new projects and how her personal and professional milestones have been a catalyst to her success. CD: Tell us about your experience co-directing and acting in the independent film, Skinned. LR: It was a fantastic opportunity in so many ways. Not just being the boss on the set, but also showcasing both angles of my creativity coming into play. I was able to direct and bring out what was needed from the actors during their performances. I nurtured them the way that I would like a director to work with me. I received that treatment and nourishment from Ms. Debbie Allen when she was the director on the set of All of Us. I knew how and what kind of director I wanted to be. The storyline was good, breathing life into the scenes of this movie creatively was great as well. It’s an independent film so you start out slow and on the low budget side, but the kick-off of the cast was phenomenal. CD: Do you find the transition from actress to director is something that you can carry for your own future projects on the production side? LR: Believe or not, I felt more comfortable behind the scenes than I really do in front of the camera because of my maturity. I’ve been in the business for the last 15 years and now I have a little more fire in me. It’s exciting to me because it’s new.  Just being in that position where I can call the shots for something that I created brings a certain amount of freedom to you. I am ready to pass the torch and do something different while staying in show business. With this role, I didn’t have to stay in the makeup trailer before ‘action’ starts. As a director, I just showed up to be ready to work and bring the creativity to life.  CD: People seem to find a real connection to you. Who do you credit for your ‘down to earth’ attitude? LR: My father was a ‘people’ person and a paraplegic, so he handled his business from the bedside. He would have a lot of

meetings from the bedroom. So, I would see him get up with very little sleep from the night before and wake up so ‘happy-golucky.’ All the time! I never saw him wake up mad or mean with any discomfort. Everyone liked him and he helped everyone so as a kid, you really don’t understand what that gift means. I grew up learning how to keep that together. Coming from a two-parent family, my mother was the housewife, but she was also the strength and backbone of the family. From her, I learned how to be a girl, a woman, a nurturer and a cook. She keeps me grounded to this day. CD: What kind of advice can you offer to younger actors who are seeking a career in the film business? LR: To stand strong because we do get to that desperate state when we just want to be on television – we feel like, we want to be famous. I understand it; it sparks and stems from something. Once you get into it, you have to realize it really is business behind the ‘business’. The show is the ‘show’ but if you’re lacking the business, you’re going to lose anyway. A great personality and having morals will go a long way. CD: How do you sustain balance in your life? LR: Having God, family, a good circle of friends and your conscience are balance for me. You know when you’re doing something that is not good. Our conscience reminds us, if you listen to that inner voice and stop continuing to be complacent, then change may come. I am on a spiritual journey right now. I was baptized about nine months ago. I think even the bad experiences help you. When I came out of my divorce, I thought at first, ‘Oh my God, how did I get here?’ It put me on my knees and God asked me, ‘Are you ready to listen? Are you ready to give me the reigns of your life instead of the reigns that you’ve taken?’ I had a great amount of success, but now I’m learning that it is easier to turn it over to Him. Be able to build my strength with the wisdom to be able to tackle the things I know are going to come into my life. Life has its ‘ups and downs’ and ‘valleys and peaks’. When you know that, you don’t have to get ready for what you know is coming. I want to stay ready.

Speaking up for the West Side: Commissioner Richard Boykin By Mary L. Datcher DEFENDER STAFF REPORTER

If you’ve lived in Chicago long enough, then you know that it’s not an easy city to live in. Most Chicagoans will challenge anyone who says anything bad about our city without really understanding its deep, rich history. The city has a notorious reputation for being one of the most segregated cities in the country -separated by its ethnicities and by its side of town. Meet a Chicagoan in another part of the country and immediately the question is asked, “What side are you from? West Side, North Side or South Side. Out of all of the sides, no side of town gets more heat or eyebrows raised than the infamous West Side. New Cook County Board Commissioner Richard Boykin understands this and had become accustomed to the raised brows long before he was elected to the 1st District. He served as chief of staff for Congressman Danny K. Davis for a number of years before going back into the private sector as a partner in a law firm. His district includes a great deal of the West Side (Austin, Garfield Park and Lawndale) and the Western Suburbs (Bellwood, Maywood, Forest Park, Oak Park, Broadview and Westchester). He succeeded Commissioner Earlean Collins who decided not to seek re-election after 16 years. The battle that Boykin faced wasn’t an easy task, not having the support of Mayor Rahm Emanuel or Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle. Now, since his term began in December, Boykin has been on a public mission to familiarize himself with his constituents. After releasing a report of his first 100 days in office a month ago, Boykin went on a promotional tour that rivals a new rap artist on tour – meeting with community organizations, appearing on radio programs, conducting one-on-one interviews, visiting county facilities and hosting town hall meetings. He is determined to raise eyebrows in a positive way when the West Side is mentioned. “I didn’t get elected by the people downtown. There were a number of people that were against me including the mayor and the current president of the Cook County Board along with others. I got elected because of the people. That means that you can’t buy me. I’m not bought; I’m unbossed and unafraid.” www.chicagodefender.com

Richard Boykin Photo Credit: Mary L. Datcher Born in Mississippi and raised by his father on the South Side in Englewood, Boykin immediately understood the complexities of his surroundings and at the same time developed an interest in public service. After college graduation, he returned home becoming an intern for Congressman Bobby Rush, going on to work for former Senator Carol Mosely Braun and eventually working for Congressman Danny K. Davis in 1996. “I always considered Davis as my second father; no one is better than Davis as far as being a public servant,” said Boykin. The pamphlet that Boykin and his team, distributed to residents outlines his legislative track record, including passing initiatives calling on the governor and state legislators to provide additional funds for mental health treatment, calling for the General Assembly to support SB 105 to restore funding to the Childcare Assistance Program and addressing predatory mortgage lending tactics of big banks targeting minorities and poor individuals. He touches upon jobs for youth by working with Brookfield Zoo to connect over 1,000 jobs within his district as well as dealing with criminal justice reform. One of his tasks

is addressing the concern of the interrogation compound headed up by the Chicago Police Department at the Homan Square facility on the Near West Side in the old Sears Roebuck building. Boykin has made several inquiries into complaints by people who were held under the shield of the CPD as a “Black Ops” set-up. Most of the suspects interrogated had been suspected of drug trafficking or more “under-the-radar” crimes. Suspects held were predominately Hispanic or Black males allegedly detained without attorney access. “As chairman of the Human Relations Committee, these allegations are troubling because detainees talked about being brought to the facility and held up to 24 hours without access to counsel. You wouldn’t expect this in the United States of America,” said Boykin. After protests and concerns from the community, Boykin was granted a tour of the Homan Square police warehouse where to his amazement, it was eerily quiet and only a couple of people were seen on the premises. He explains, “No one was in the interview rooms or lock-up. There were cameras in the interview room, but the cameras had been installed a year ago. These allegations were nearly two years old; the lock-

up room looks like a cage that can hold up to 12 people. Very strange and odd. I left there with more questions than answers.” Not able to find the answers to these questions, he contacted the Department of Justice for a formal investigation because it’s important for accountability like the citizen allegations in Ferguson, MO and New York City. Boykin has pointed out his concerns to the current Chicago Police District Commander Penny Trahanas (11th District) and the Independent Police Review Authority. But nothing is more disturbing in his viewpoint than the former CPD commander, Jon Burge. “The Chicago Police Department has a long track record for violating human rights. You don’t have to look far; Jon Burge violated hundreds of Black men and tortured them for over a 20-year period. He went to jail for perjury – not for torture. Some of his victims are still in jail today. Until there can be accountability for the police actions for these individuals, there can’t be trust in the community.” The West Side is no different than the South Side; it’s suffered school closings, public safety issues and, most importantly, the lack of economic growth. “Our children are struggling. When you look at Austin, East or West Garfield or even Lawndale, they are struggling. They haven’t had the investment that the

people residing downtown have had. I’m about inclusion. Why not spread some of the monies around for local investments. What about stimulation of jobs?” Feeling frustrated about Mayor Emanuel’s performance, Boykin adds, “He’s been guided by the 1 percent. He’s like a bull in a china shop. The members of the school board have been able to get contracts when others have not -- especially the brown and black people.” The mayoral runoff election is less than a week away and it has created a political divide in the city. He believes his fellow Cook County Board member Jesus ‘Chuy’ Garcia is the best candidate that shares a common goal that he’s striving to reach. “I think Chuy’s campaign represents hope. I think it represents help for those that are considered ‘helpless.’” Some have speculated Boykin’s aggressive moves are a segue into running for Congress once his mentor Davis retires from his 7th District Congressional seat which serves a great deal of the West Side and North Side. He chuckles and explains, “The congressman will be the congressman as long as he wants to. I am not in discussion about that. He’s been like a father to me and I feel he has an extra bump in his step.”

The importance of the mayoral runoff election on April 7 By Robert T. Starks

Why vote on April 7? Here are some very practical and essential reasons for voting in this crucial election. Fundamentally, we are all citizens and as citizens we have a civic and moral responsibility to vote in our own interests to assure that our civil rights and social needs provided by government are equally met. Black citizens represent the largest voting bloc of registered voters in the city. Political experts and pundits all agree that the Black vote will determine the outcome of this election at the aldermanic and mayoral levels. This is an opportunity that Black voters should not and cannot pass up given the fact that the future direction of city government will have a profound effect on the Black community. In addition to electing a mayor who will serve for the next four years, we will elect 13 aldermen who are in an aldermanic runoff that could potentially reshape the tone, tenor and direction of the City Council. We

must not forget that this city’s governmental structure has a history of a strong City Council and a weak mayor. However, since the days of Richard J. Daley (1955-1976) to the present, with the exception of the mayoralty of Harold Washington, we have had a strong mayor and a weak City Council form of government. Political scientist Dick Simpson, in a UIC study of the Chicago City Council, showed that Emanuel received an average of 91 percent support of the City Council members voting with him which resulted in his having virtually total control over the City Council. This degree of control has resulted in some serious mistakes, including the closing of 50 schools, the introduction of speed light cameras and the closing of mental health facilities. The election of 13 independent aldermen in the runoff would help to reverse this trend and give political control back to the constituents in the wards and bring balance to city government policy making. The fate of the city lies in the balance as we ponder who we will vote for in this election. We are given a choice between incumbent Mayor Rahm Emanuel and his opponent Cook County Commissioner Jesus “Chuy” Garcia, who has served as an alder-

man and state representative before running for commissioner. Garcia enjoys the support of the president of the Chicago Teachers Union (CTU) and other unions, many prominent members of the Black community and progressives in the city and around the nation. While Garcia began his campaign with a small amount of money primarily donated by the CTU, he has been able to raise considerably more cash since February 2015, but nothing to match the Emanuel war che st. The mayor is well connected, after having served as chief of staff to President Barack Obama. He has the support of a large number of high profile Blacks including some ministers. Reportedly, he has a campaign war chest of some $30 million. He has spent almost half of that on an endless number of television, radio and print ads designed to trash Garcia. Emanuel has admitted some of his mistakes while in office and apologized, but has promised little, if any, change in his approach to governance if re-elected. On the other hand, Garcia’s campaign has depended upon rallies and personal appearances to promote his election. It is only recently that he has been able to air commercials on tele-

vision and become aggressive in debates and forums. He has promised major changes in the approach to city government. He has accused the Emanuel administration of being focused on the 1 percent to the neglect of the 99 percent of Chicago citizens. Thus, depending upon the candidate that you now support, you must take that next step on or before April 7th by casting your important ballot. Our vote should reflect our choice for the person that we think has the vision and the ability to implement that vision. We have a myriad of problems in Chicago that will require bold and creative approaches to place this city back on a progressive 21st century trajectory. Chicago’s problems that must be addressed immediately include: police abuse and brutality, huge city deficits, public transportation, education, crumbling infrastructure, lack of affordable housing, needed TIF reform, pension debt, need for fairness in city jobs and contracts, as well as comprehensive tax reform. All of these issues directly affect the Black community. Thus, the April 7 election outcome will depend heavily on Black voters going to the polls. Remember, Black voters are in the drivers’ seat!

The Small Town with the Big Voice: Mayor Vivian Covington By Mary L. Datcher Traveling in the Far South Suburbs, 30 miles southeast of Chicago, is a small town that sits between Park Forest, Monee and Crete in Will County. University Park has become the home to Governors State University and approximately 7,129 residents according to the U.S. Census 2010. The town has become its own slice of life. Since 2011, the village has seen some escalating changes since the current Mayor Vivian Covington took office. A resident for 20 years and a trustee on the village board, her passion and love for her hometown have put University Park on the radar for state funding and economic development programs. One of the first projects that she undertook was securing $20 million in grant money. Some of the monies were used renovate to bus shelters that weren’t in compliance. This use of funds did not put a financial burden on the residents of the town. She explains, “The shelters also have advertisements inside them which brings us revenue for the village. With that money, we’re going to start our pilot bus service for the village because after 6:00 p.m., there is no bus service in University Park. This was one of the main things I wanted to do.” One of the distinct changes that residents noticed was having

a new zip code: 60484. “We’re no longer a part of Park Forest which was taking a large part of our count on the census population side. We’re in Will County, not Cook County anymore. That also decreased our cost for insurance including auto and home,” said Covington. Covington is not your average mayor; she is a graduate of Eastern Illinois University earning her BA in business administration with a minor in computer science and she is working towards her master’s degree. A 32-year technology specialist, she is currently employed with the Veterans Administration where she is the subject matter expert, a management role that oversees important global technology related programs. Her experience in the technology industry has been a contributing factor for University Park’s entry into the digital world. “We have generated $436,000 dollars in savings converting our technology over leasing equipment. We’re now on the worldwide web where we have certain areas in the village that are wireless. Instead of delayed printers, we have network printers. No more fax and copier machines; this has saved us tremendously,” she says. Governors State University has become an essential partner in helping to build visibility and value to the village. Established in 1969, the school sits on 750 acres and

originally started as a four-year college but was reduced to two years until last August when it was declared a four-year university. Covington takes great pride in her strong relationship with the GSU’s president, Dr. Elaine Maimon. “I’m a trustee and one of the biggest things is working with Dr. Elaine on making Governors State University a college town. It was a senior college, now it’s a four-year university. We have a beautiful relationship and a mutual agreement on how we can help each other to increase our population.” During her term as mayor of University Park, Covington helped to work out an 80/20 deal to fix the main road leading to GSU which resulted in $400,000 that

was granted by the GBDB Advisory Committee which she sits on. The village has a partnership with one of the largest industrial parks -Governors Gateway Industrial Park -- which is responsible for new street lights as well as the Christmas decorations during holiday season. The town sports a cable broadcast program, WUPC Channel 4 that teaches young students how to work behind the scenes in the television broadcast industry. Along with hosting the first carnival and farmer’s market, University Park is best known for its beautiful 18-hole golf course and country club. With a busy schedule, Covington is the only African American mayor of a town in Will County.

She chairs the African American Women’s Mayors Charter in addition to being a member of several Mayors and Managers Associations in the South Suburban and Will County region. She is currently working on bringing a bank, a full service grocery store and a hotel to the small, burgeoning town. No stranger to tragedy, in the beginning of her first term, she lost her daughter, who had served in the Iraq war, to cancer. She explains her perseverance and the importance of being a great leader, “You have to be exposed, you have to be participating and you must be available at all times. I have a good rapport with people because I care.”

MAYORAL HOPEFUL After leading the charge to implement the Mayoral Term Limits Referendum for Country Club Hills as legislation to re-establish control of Country Clubs Hills Municipal Government, Alderman Vincent Lockett threw himself into the race for mayor. When asked why he is the best candidate, the veteran alderman is quick to say, “I have the most experience and the best leadership qualities reflective in the work I’ve done for the community.” Newly elected as alderman of the 2nd ward in 2005, he focused on learning and mastering how the government works and how Country Club Hills’ tax dollars were being spent. It was during this time that he discovered discrepancies in relation to the expenditures under the leadership of Mayor Dwight Welch. So in 2009 he initiated procedures to identify the concerns. He was with met resistance and continued to observe Welch abuse his position and disrespect the Vincent Lockett citizens of Country Club Hills. This led to personal attacks on his character, yet Lockett continued his pursuit of the truth and demanded change and accountability. Lockett explains that he supported the leadership of a new City Treasurer in 2011 and consequently his perseverance resulted in the actual financial circumstances being assessed. With a new team of aldermanic leadership, they worked diligently to reduce the budget, approve funding for a forensic audit and hire outside counsel to assist them in moving forward. What was ultimately revealed is that from 2007 – 2010 the Country Club Hills Amphitheater, the city’s outdoor entertainment center, had revenue of approximately $4,627,000, yet the expenditures were approximately $410,405,000. Welch also allegedly was responsible for wasting $5,700,000 of the city’s tax dollars due to negligence.

Lockett’s team’s priority was to reverse the city’s mismanagement and better serve the citizens by seeking a positive outcome. He points to his commitment and dedication that opened the door to a more effective and honest government that Country Club Hills now experiences. If he is elected, his goal is to continue his past hard work towards a more effective and efficiently run city. Lockett cites that after the first tax anticipation/loan approved and the annual budget was expanded without any improvement in city services, he was one of two alderman who continuously voted against this unlimited borrowing by their elected leaders, two of whom are currently running against him. Lockett says that Country Club Hills needs a leadership that is invested in the ultimate well-being and good of its citizens. He promises that his tenure as mayor would be a welcomed change to the previous mayor’s selfish shenanigans of 24 years of deception. Lockett says under his leadership transparency would be disclosed and the operations of the city would be an open book to citizens. As of 2013, the total population of Country Club Hills was 16,886 people. The population growth rate is lower than the state average rate of 3.31 percent and is much lower than the national average rate of 9.71 percent. The Country Club Hills population density is 3,420.31 people per square mile, which is much higher than the state average density of 221.55 people per square mile and is much higher than the national average density of 81.32 people per square mile. The most prevalent race in Country Club Hills is Black, which represents 87.13 percent of the total population. The average Country Club Hills education level is higher than the state average and is higher than the national average. THE CHICAGO DEFENDER • April 1-7, 2015 11


LOCAL NEWS Showdown from Page 2 supporters were there in his favor as people cheered from the audience -- a very blue collar crowd of supporters and a handful of Hispanic attendees. He walked towards the stage, assured and confident in his approach, as he shook people’s hands along the way. He was the first candidate to take the hot seat. One of the first questions addressed was on the topic of fixing schools or replacing them. Charles Thomas asked Garcia, “The mayor has used a replacement strategy. Are you a fixer or are you just replacing schools?” “I believe in order for Chicago to have a robust system of public schools everywhere in Chicago, we need to invest significantly. The Chicago Public Schools are underfund-

ed and we suffer from a structural deficit related to how we pay for our educational system. The formula is to raise property taxes every few years,” said Garcia. Garcia never provided a solution to the problem of fixing or replacing the schools but pointed out the general budget deficit so Thomas asked the Cook County Commissioner what he would do differently in Springfield. Covering issues that ranged from jobs, to public housing concerns in the CHA, to public safety, the question was raised on Garcia’s commitment to hiring 1,000 new police officers and where monies would come from. Garcia explained, “We begin with taking half of the $100 million that we’re presently spending on overtime for police in Chicago and begin

hiring the new officers and training them in community policing.” He then added that it will take time and it will not take place all at once. Taking questions from the audience, Garcia’s time eventually ended and there was a 20-minute break to prepare the stage for Mayor Emanuel’s entrance. In between the change, Garcia’s community and political supporters descended on the candidate with swarms of cameras capturing every greeter. The “hug fest” included a very happy former State Senate President, Emil Jones, Sr., for whom the CSU building is named. Other familiar faces in attendance included former Alderman Dorothy Tillman, Alderman Natashia Holmes (7th Ward), and City Treasurer Kurt Summers. As Garcia left, so did some of his supporters as folks followed the Cook County Commissioner seeking a selfie and a hug. The changeover was noticeable as more suits appeared taking their seats awaiting Mayor Emanuel’s entrance. Once again, Rev. Sylvia Jones took the podium warning the attendees of the “no booing” rule to begin the second part of the forum. This was the first openly public mayoral forum that allowed Chicagoans to submit questions and to verbally express their appreciation or dismay for each candidate. Just like a Cubs fan entering a White Sox ballpark, Mayor Emanuel entered, walking towards the stage and was greeted with a collection of “boos” from CSU’s stands. Once onstage, Emanuel greeted each of the panelists and the moderator and removed his suit jacket as he immediately sensed it was not going to be an easy audience to charm. Shortly thereafter, a small group of protesters disrupted the beginning of Emanuel’s discussion with a protest of the history of the Chicago Police Department’s corruption and were escorted out of the venue by State Police officers. Trying to appeal to the diverse, hard-working residents in the audience, Emanuel immediately talked about his immigrant grandparents Blacks from Page 5 l­egislation was bad for business. Seattle’s mayor and Connecticut’s governor banned their employees from traveling to Indiana to do business. Indianapolis-based Angie’s List CEO announced that his company was going to halt plans for a $40 million expansion in the state’s capital.

and their story of finding a better situation for their family. Not taking the bait, Thomas asked the Mayor, “Why is the City of Chicago so segregated if various nationalities have similarities and why don’t we love each other?” “I actually don’t buy that we don’t love each other,” said Emanuel. “We’re not going to be the city or want to be the city for our kids if we don’t find our commonality,” he added. He wouldn’t back down off the school issues which have been the driving point of his critics. Emanuel explained, “Our kids had the shortest school day in America. In four years, we’re at a 70 percent graduation rate because of the hard work of our principals, teachers, parents and students. In two years, we’re going to be at 82 percent – one of the leaders in the country in any major urban system,” said Emanuel. The mayor went on to clarify the $1.3 billion investment in current and new schools. According to a University of Chicago study, at least 93 percent of CPS students are going to a better academically performing school than their previous school. During certain points throughout his time, the crowd eventually calmed down the “booing” and began to listen, but one could sense the mayor’s discomfort of being placed on the hot seat. He showed a different side of himself when he admitted to jumping the gun on re-naming Stony Island Avenue after the late civil rights leader, Bishop Arthur M. Brazier, and naming a new high school being built on the Near North Side after the first ­African-American President, Barack Obama. He recanted both, saying he heard the cry of the people and therefore realized he jumped too soon. In observing the forum, it was clear that the reason Chicago is experiencing its first mayoral run-off election is because citizens want and need to be heard. Listening to the people of Chicago is not only important but it is also a significant

part of any public elected official’s job. Different developments have materialized from Garcia’s past position as the Executive Director of the non profit organization, Enlace and the deficit that was filed in the organization’s 2009 federal tax returns of $657,462 dollars. It is not shining a good light on the concern of financial management under his direction. In addition, recent developments also revealed the Cook County Board Commissioner’s campaign support from Chicago businessman, Mike Joyce, son of former alderman, Jeremiah Joyce who was a constant opponent of Mayor Harold Washington during his term in office is now backing Garcia. Joyce’s company, Chicago Aviation Partners held the concession contract in O’Hare’s International Terminal for 19 years before the City of Chicago awarded the contract to Westfield in 2011. This loss created a battle between the Joyce family and Mayor Emanuel but has created record high profits of $43.1 million in the last three years from the Westfield takeover. With less than a week away from the most watched election since the presidential election, the entire country is paying attention for several reasons -- a loss for the Rahm Emanuel camp is a blow to President Barack Obama’s administration. If the mayor does not win, it will show the president’s influence was not enough to get his former chief of staff back in City Hall for a second term. This election has delayed the announcement of the Obama Presidential Library and until a victor is elected, Chicago is on the international radar. Most importantly, if Chicagoans elect its first Hispanic mayor, the question becomes, “Will Blacks have the visibility in his administration as they’ve had in his campaign?” If so, then it would be the reality of a “Brown and Black” coalition and not just a cliché.

er education and America are all about. And there is, of course, a social media response: On Twitter the hashtag is #boycottindiana. All that outrage has focused Gov. Pence’s mind like a hanging. He was claiming that Indiana’s RFRA law was no different from the one in Illinois and the other 18 states that passed one. Pence left out the part about those other states having a separate law that specifically protected LGBTs from discrimination, while his state does not. You can be fired in Indi-

ana for being gay. Over the weekend, he was asserting that the law wouldn’t be changed. Yesterday he held a press conference to announce that maybe it would. He’s having his legislature revamp the onerous law. “Clearly, clearly, there’s been misunderstanding and confusion and mischaracterization of this law,” Gov. Pence said. “I abhor discrimination.” Right. Don’t stop paying attention yet. Arkansas passed its own religious freedom law yesterday. www.chicagodefender.com

2015 Mayoral Survey Report RESEARCH DESIGN: A poll of 1,003 Interviews amongst registered African American voters in the Chicago Mayoral Election on Tuesday, April 7, 2015. Data collection took place during the dates of March 25 – 26, 2015. The survey was conducted via Computer Assisted Telephone Interviews using a 60/40 mix of landline and cell phone users. The research targeted a statistical sampling of African American voters across the city wards of Chicago. The accuracy level of results is +/-3.2%. In addition to the poll, a concurrent study consisting of 6 In-Depth Interviews amongst African American registered voters. The sample included two likely voters per candidate and one undecided. The interviews took place during the dates of March 28 – 29, 2015. The interviews were conducted by telephone and averaged 10 minutes in length. The results presented in this report should be interpreted as a reflection of voter sentiment during the time of data collection. Results may change due to significant events that may occur before the actual election date. This research was commissioned by WVON/Chicago Defender; analysis and data collection by C R Market Surveys /Solomon Group; sampling design by McKeon & Associates.

SUMMARY OF POLL RESULTS: Of those polled, 46% of African American voters would select Rahm Emanuel if the elections were held today.

VOTER INTERVIEWS: Supporters of Rahm Emmanuel: Bettie B., a 66-year-old retiree in Chicago’s South Shore community, says Rahm’s “strong track record of running government” and his work with President Obama, “proves he is the strongest candidate for mayor.” She contends she is satisfied overall with Rahm’s performance as mayor, citing his work to increase the minimum wage, provide tuition for community college, and not increasing property taxes as some examples of helping Chicago. While she is mixed about the public school closings, she says they were “necessary choices” to move the city forward. When asked the reasons for not voting for Garcia, she states: “All he (Garcia) talks about is the prior administration and fault what they do, but he has no platform or explanation for what to do different.” Lakeisha B., a 31-year-old single mother in Englewood, agrees. She recently attended a Southside debate between the two candidates and says that it was there that she began to switch her support to Rahm. “There’s a lot I do not like about Rahm, but right now he is the best qualified to lead the city. Garcia doesn’t really have answers for how to get this city out of trouble. We’re facing pension reform, high crime and debt. That’s why I have to go with Rahm.” Lakeisha also believes the run-off is good for the community. “I think after this election Rahm will think twice about taking the African American vote for granted. We can vote him in, and we can get him out.”

While Rahm shows the lead, there is a large percent of undecided voters (almost 20%). Results show that over 50% of the 46 years and older segment favor Rahm Emanuel; while Garcia shows strong support amongst the younger segments. The key is who is most likely to vote among the undecided.  Historically it has been older voters, making Rahm the more likely winner of this race.

Felicia B., 28, a graduate student in Hyde Park, is also undecided but says she sees merit in both candidates. “… Rahm is more qualified to bring new business and improve the economy. But Garcia will represent different kinds of people – rich, poor and minorities.” She says that both are equally important to run the city. She is hoping for another debate to help decide. 2015 MAYORAL POLL QUESTIONNAIRE 1. Which of the following best describes your race or ethnic background? TERMINATE IF NOT AFRICAN AMERICAN S2.

For Tracie J., 39-year-old nurse in South Shore, the school closings is her key reason for choosing Garcia.

“What he (Rahm) doesn’t realize is that closing so many schools can destabilize a community. These schools have been a historical fixture for these communities, and now there’s a void. It’s just another example of how he’s out of touch with underserved communities.” She says that Garcia, in contrast, is from the community. “He’s one of us. I think he’ll better relate to what’s going on around here, and how these changes are really affecting people.”

Daniel S., 22 on the west side says he also plans to vote for Garcia. “Rahm’s plan is to make this a city for the rich and run poor blacks out to the suburbs. I think as a minority, Garcia would work for everybody. He will bring balance to the city.” When asked to speculate about voter turnout within his age segment, Daniel says the reality is that some of his peers “are too caught up in their own problems, what they are going through. They’re not seeing how this election is really going to change things from them. So some don’t vote.” Undecided: Ricardo W, 31, in Chatham is undecided but is leaning towards Garcia. When asked why, he says, “I just don’t like Rahm. He has done many

things that rub me the wrong way…like the red light cameras and school closings.” However, he says that he needs more information about Garcia before making a final choice. “I don’t know a lot about him but I like that he’s a minority. I think he’ll be more for Black people.”

It is always the result of high intention, sincere effort, intelligent direction skillful execution, and the vision to see life’s challenges as opportunities. This afternoon the Chicago Defender recognizes 50 WOMEN of Excellence nominated by Chicago Defender readers. A blue ribbon panel of impartial and anonymous judges had the arduous task of making the final selections from the hundreds of names submitted. We salute each of the women whose credentials were submitted who are not listed this year, as well as the thousands of women known and unknown who reflect excellence daily.

Who are the Chicago Defender WOMEN of EXCELLENCE? Today we honor women who inspire others through their vision and leadership, exceptional achievements and participation in community service. They are women who exemplify, stature, poise grace and inner beauty. They do it all while maintaining the delicate balance of managing their various leadership roles as professional, partner, wife, mother and teacher. They are leaders, motivators and educators. They are entrepreneurs, corporate executives, civil servants, and other professionals. They are women who have made their mark in society and are reaching forward by reaching back to assist those who want to move ahead. They are women who dare to dream the impossible and then work to make it happen like Madame C.J. Walker and Oprah Winfrey. They are women of conviction like Rosa Parks, and Angela Davis. They are women who persevere like Fannie Lou Hamer and Serena/Venus Williams. They are women of honor like Shirley Chisholm and Coretta Scott King.

Additionally, Flowers voted to outlaw firearms in schools and to ban military-style assault weapons and high-capacity magazines. To strengthen our neighborhoods, Flowers passed legislation to increase loans to minority-owned and minority-operated businesses. Flowers also led the movement to rename Calumet Expressway after Bishop L. Ford, the first expressway in Illinois named after an African American.

Debra Simmons Peterson Debra Simmons-Peterson is a native Chicagoan who was raised on Chicago’s Northside in the Cabrini Green Public Housing Projects. After high school, she attended cosmetology school. Simmons-Peterson’s career started at Rush Presbyterian St. Luke’s Hospital in the Transportation Department as a summer worker. Out of nearly 30 years of working at Rush, she spent 20 years as a union steward which allowed her the opportunity to communicate daily with Local 743 members and work together to resolve their issues. In 2003, she left Rush to pursue opportunities as an entrepreneur. Always loyal to her true passion, in 2008 Simmons-Peterson returned to her beloved Local 743, serving as a union representative. This position gave her invaluable knowledge about the daily operations of the Local Union as well as its membership.

As leader of the Women’s Committee, Simmons-Peterson organized a massive clothing drive to benefit women living in shelters who are trying to re-enter the work force. Her biggest accomplishment to date occurred in December 2013 when Simmons-Peterson made history by becoming the first African American female to be elected as president of Teamsters Local 743. Her “Have a Voice Slate” won this election by one of the biggest margins ever seen in the history of the Local Officers’ Elections. Under Simmons-Peterson’s administration, a new concept of membership meetings has been implemented where in addition to the regular monthly general membership meetings, the Union also holds individual member meetings at various worksites as well as quarterly meetings for the members in Waukegan who cannot attend the regular monthly meetings at the Union Hall. Her favorite phrase and the one she continuously to lead with is “None of us is as strong as of all us.”
