Those of us who live in the Ward and have to actually deal with Yonan on city business hope he dies as soon as possible. He is an ignorant creep with entitlement issues who thinks he can dictate how the rest of us live in the Ward while blatantly violating the law himself.
When he dies I will sh*t on his grave.
Wow....that's pretty bitter...an old proverb says that bitterness rotts the bones....you should get help for that. I'll pray for you.

Are you freakin serious????? Cry me a river!!!! DO you want an itemized list from all of the people in this city about what we have been enduring financially, emotionally, and physically
so we too can be exempt from paying for the meters? You are off your rocker...just like Mr. Yonan-you have a sense of entitlement that is off the charts and think that your personal issues automatically give you passes that the rest of us
in this city would NEVER GET!!!! Clearly your family is so used to the entitlements that come with having a family member in the 44th Alderman office that you have lost your grip on reality. Let me make this perfectly clear...I am not special because of my age, or my financial, physical or emotional hardships over the past few years-and I assure you there have been more than a handful, and NEITHER are you or anyone else! Tunney votes for the parking meter hikes and his staff just skates without even paying-WE TAXPAYERS HAVE HAD ENOUGH!!!! ARR WE CLEAR NOW?????
Wasn't trying to make anyone feel sorry for anyone, just trying to bring some clarity to the situation as it was definately misrepresented. But it appears everyone on this board is bitter and judgmental. I guess in the end it doesn't really matter because considering what has been posted, it doesn't matter what people like you think. I mean really...look at how ticked you are about something that is so small in the larger scope of things happening around the world...but maybe you cope by focusing on the petty stuff. Or maybe you allow yourself to get angry about these smaller issues because in your own life you feel out of control....hmmmm....maybe it's time to see a shrink.

ądon't give a crap how old he is. Clearly you are related to the old fart that is squeezing taxpayers for his parking fees. You should both be ashamed of yourself and your never ending BS. He should be prosecuted for FRAUD-anyone else using the city sticker like that would be prosecuted. The clout in this city needs to stop. If this guy is back in the 44th ward office, Tunney will have major problems...as in more than he already does from the taxpayers in this Ward. We have had enough of CLOUT and freeloaders-Mr. Yonan is guilty of both.
Wow, you figured out I am related to Zodak....you are soo smart. How did you figure that out? You must be a rocket scientist.

Tunney may not have known but he still needs to go. His own pockets come before his constituents.

Why the vitriol-- is it because he got caught?-- or is it because now there will be less moola? anyway you look at it, it is still stealing -- and then perhaps as Dems it is o.k. huh?
