State Rep Bob Rita currently has four positions. The 28th district has over 16% unemployment. He needs to give some of these jobs to the unemployed. There is no room for greed in Illinois government.

Mr. Rita is so involved with the local scene, which is very commendable. Democratic Committeeman, Calumet Township Supervisor, Micro Manage the city of Blue Island, his Cook County job. He does not represent us adequately in Springfield. Calumet Township Tax Assessor Seth McCormack would be a logical replacement. Rita out, McCormick in.

Committeeman = NO Pay volunteer, 2 meetings a year
He hasn't worked at Cook County for over a year

Is the Honorable Bob Rita, a full time State Rep? He has no other commitment,outside his daily perfunctory duty as State Rep?

Help make Roseland better

Roseland is a dangerous place. It has been a place where low-income people have been dumped, mental illness runs rampant, angry and desperate young men with criminal records flounder, women with low self-esteem manipulate lonely relationships, too many people are hooked on drugs and alcohol, and a racist attitude by African Americans is isolating the community from any hope. Until we stop denying this fact, the community will never do anything to better itself.

I have lived and pastored in this community for eight years. I know the sins of the community, but I also know its graces. Gwendolyn Brooks College Prep is one of our gems. Our alderman, Anthony Beale, to his credit, has guided its foundation, making it a cornerstone to the “New Roseland.” This community has very efficient city services, great police and fire protection, terrific parks, a sufficient transportation network, schools that have picked themselves up and are serving the needs of this community, wonderful churches and ministers, a hospital that continues to serve the community to the best of its ability, and mostly hardworking residents who are trying to make a good life for their families.

Still, visitors to Roseland place their lives on the line, because at anytime one of our “stupids” may act out and do harm. But please know they do not define the entire community, and we need the presence of visitors to challenge our good people. Families in the community need to identify problems in their families and get the help before tragedy occurs. The community needs more mental health and alcohol/drug rehab facilities that can get the people the help when they need it.

Peyton College Prep had reason for not wanting to play in Roseland. Don’t condemn them, but work to make Roseland a better place. Stop denying the sins, so the healing can occur.

Funding at the state level IS gone. All state agencies are scrambling (DHS, DMH, DCFS) attempting to make do with significant short falls. The pension system is broken debt is at an all time high. A vote in Springfield is expected, as early as today. Help IS NOT on the way. TIME TO DO MORE WITH LESS.
Its a scandal

State Representative Robert Rita promised these people jobs. He has not delivered. They must not be a blood relative!

Rita only represents his and the Dems agenda - he doesn't care about ...much less represent ...our interests.

In Crook County is there anyone that really will represent the constituents interests and needs?

“I believe that most of your family-oriented organizations thought, erroneously, the majority of the African-American community is behind a liberal agenda, period,” Bishop Lance Davis, senior pastor of the New Zion Christian Fellowship Church of Dolton, told the Chicago Sun-Times last month.“They found out the African-American church is very conservative.”

Rep Bob Rita is for Gay marriage. He has moved far from his Church. He is supporting this Bill quietly.

Part of a deal he made with Tom Hawley.

I signed a petition for someone running against Rita. Didn't ask the name, it really did not matter. Anyone would be a huge improvement.
