The meeting with Dan Rutherford with first responders is scheduled for February 1st from 0900 to 1000 hrs at the VFW at 9701 S. Kedzie Av. in Evergreen Park. Doors open at 0830 hours. Candidate Rutherford is the only GOP candidate to schedule meet and greets with first responders. I urge all of us to make the time to hear what this guy has to say. I am not endorsing anyone at this time. Lets hear him out. Once again, what do we have to lose?

This blog is one of my absolute favorites. The comment section is a trip. Highly recommended if you want to know what’s going on with CPD and the city.
Mike McKittrick was a Field Chief Paramedic who retired a year or so before I did.He died in Las Vegas this week. I had the pleasure of working for and with Mike for many years. He was the driving force for EMS in Local 2 and was directly responsible for nearly every advancement EMS made with the city for over 35 years. Younger members for the most part don’t realize the struggles we went through trying to improve our lot within the Chicago Fire Department. We fought long and hard for better pay, a career ladder for EMS, better equipment, you name it.
During all the struggles Mike was always in the lead. He was Director of EMS for Local 2 for many years and I can safely say that no other member had the knowledge of EMS issues that Mike had. We lost a great union man this week. Condolences to his family and friends. I consider Mike to be a friend and brother. Rest well Mike. Until we meet again.
