The North Lawndale Alliance asked 24th Ward residents who live in North Lawndale to grade their elected officials on a scale of A to F, with A being the highest, and F being the lowest. As with school grades, the A represents superior performance; the B represents above average performance; the C represents average performance; the D represents below average and the F is a failing grade. The grades are subjective, and are based on the respondents' own experiences and perceptions. Respondents were simply asked to grade their elected officials, and no other background information was provided on specific issues or examples. Participants also had an opportunity to share comments as to why the grades were given. This was optional, and not required. The comments are included in this report, and were copied verbatim without editing. The poll was developed using the Survey Monkey application. The poll was available online between April 8, 2013 and is still available as of the date of this report (February 26, 2014). Links to the survey were posted on EveryBlock Chicago-North Lawndale, Facebook, Linked-In, Twitter and the Lawndale Alliance, Policy on the Ground and the Staying in the Loop blogs. Nearly 2,700 e-mails were sent to North Lawndale residents. Of this number 26 people responded. The following are results as of February 26, 2014. While the number of people who responded is very small, the feedback is useful and should not be discounted, even though the results are not scientific. We recently conducted a poll of Democrats considering voting in the 2014 Illinois Republican Gubernatorial Primary, to see who for whom they might vote for Governor. Even though the sample size was very small (18 people), the results were remarkably similar to what the Tribune found in their poll. The results of this poll will be shared with elected officials and 24th Ward residents. It is our hope that our elected officials will take the feedback seriously, and begin to develop strategies to better serve the voters.
