Ald. Waguespack's Parking Meter Politicking

The Parking Ticket Geek

The Geek is an idiot, who gets a lot of parking tickets, and knows how to fight back.

32nd Ward Alderman Scott Waguespack is kicking off his 2011 re-election campaign with the help of Chicago's parking meters.

Waguespack, who was one of only five votes against the infamous parking meter lease deal and has been quite outspoken on the issue, has put together a very clever invitation to an upcoming fundraiser.

Our friends over at Chicagoist (where we originally found out about the event) questions whether the alderman is starting his fundraising campaign too soon.

But, considering Waguespack has not made any friends in the current administration, he probably needs as much of a financial head start as he can get. Although, his minority opinion in the city council on the meter lease fiasco, that not surprisingly frustrated the majority of Chicagoans,  should end up being an issue he can ride to victory next February.

Although, I don't think the alderman should be counting on any political donations from LAZ Parking, Chicago Parking Meters, LLC or Morgan Stanley.

The alderman's "The Meter Is Running..." event takes place Thursday, March 4th, beginning at 6 PM at the Lincoln Tap Room, 3010 N. Lincoln Ave.

Not that I don't want him to be reelected... but Waguespack should take his immediate, vocal and correct stance on this issue all the way to Mayor of Chicago. He might as well be Bruce Wayne in Gotham City the way the rest of the alderman rolled over for this deal.
