Worried family member here... Need opinions not smart comments & insults.. I have a family member who has a 3 & 1/2 month old baby who was born 6 weeks early & had to stay in hospital for 2 weeks. She has not even been taken back to dr for her 6 week shots. Does any moms out there care to voice their opinion on the parents who don't think they need to take the time to get the baby her shots?

The baby was probably the first in line to start getting a government check and then more and more money for each baby after baby. As the babies get older they will be turned out to be raised in the streets. We can surmise that there is no babydaddy around as usual?

Raised knocking doors for House Speaker Michael J. Madigan’s political organization on Chicago’s Southwest Side, Ed Moody became an early favorite once he tossed his name in the ring to replace the late Joan Murphy for 6th District Commissioner on the Cook County Board. Ed and his twin brother, Fred, considered Madigan somewhat of a father figure. Their mother died when they were 14, and their father was an alcoholic. The twins worked in Madigan’s political organization since they were teenagers, eventually gaining a statewide reputation for an ability to flip votes.

Moody's first precinct captain gig began in 1988, for Worth Township Committeeman and State Rep. Harold “Bus” Yourell. He also had a county job as a technician engineer the Highway Department. He became a precinct captain for Madigan in 1991 and has stayed active in the organization ever since. After his time at the Highway Department, Moody became a Cook County Circuit Court Coordinator in the Office of the Chief Judge.

His brother, Fred, got a job in Circuit Court Clerk’s office (he later went on to help manage campaigns for Dorothy Brown). Fred was also appointed by the Cook County Board to serve as a trustee of the Stickney Sanitary District in early 2017. Ed voted present.

Moody was elected School Board President of Chicago Ridge District 127.5 in 2007, and beat a longtime incumbent to become Worth Township Highway Commissioner in 2013 as part of the Community First ticket. His wife, Vicki, who also works for the Clerk of the Circuit Court, later replaced him as Highway Commissioner.

Despite facing seven challengers for the 6th District County Commissioner seat in the fall of 2016, Moody says Madigan didn’t have to lobby any of the suburban Democratic committeemen for support–he was already well-known for his political connections and experience. He has announced plans to retire after two full terms.

His re-election in 2018 will likely not be as easy, despite support from Madigan and Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle. Moody was one of eight commissioners who voted to approve the county’s penny per ounce tax on sweetened beverages. Commissioners who voted in favor of the tax are likely targets for the American Beverage Association and other business groups.

His district, which includes portions of Chicago Ridge, Hickory Hills, Oak Lawn, Palos Hills, Alsip, Blue Island, Crestwood, Oak Forest, Tinley Park, Matteson, Richton Park, Palos Heights, Worth, Bedford Park, Justice and Bridgeview, has a growing African American population.

Moody and his wife live in Chicago Ridge, where they’ve raised their nephew, Ryan.

NO, sorry to bust your bubbles, but they are not on welfare, & the parents are together & happy. They just don't think baby shots are more important than their time it takes to go get them, I guess. As for Ed Moody comments, you all go start your own thread. Can anyone on Topix EVER stay on topic??? All I wanted was to find out if anyone agrees with me, that they are taking a huge risk, or if they think shots are over rated....
