Keep A Knockin' But You Can't Come In

A reader writes in:

According to Ald. Shiller's website, her office is open from 9am-11am on the first Saturday of every month, and it specifically lists last Saturday, May 3, as one of those days:
Alderman Shiller's Office Hours
Yet, my husband goes to her office this past Saturday at 10:30am and it was closed.


  1. Hee! The page starts out:

    "Helen Shiller has the best ward service office in the city," says long-time ward resident and former aldermanic candidate Charlotte Newfeld.

    I guess unless you actually want someone to be there on the days the office is, ahem, "open."

  2. I heard Charlotte yell at Helen's staff for no community notice about a zoning change in her Lakeview neighborhood.

  3. Sorry guys... I was on pigeon patrol.

  4. i know it was a joke...and i laughed..but we should probably not get in the habit of posting as "Helen Shiller." it doesn't seem right---especially if worse things are stated. sorry to be a killjoy.

  5. charlotte newfeld is just like helen - deluted

  6. I talked to the office the other day and they mentioned that they are open until 7pm for Cubs night games. I haven't tried, but worth a shot.
