Political quiet period now through Tuesday

With a few exceptions, The Bulldog is taking a political quiet time now through Tuesday. This is important to persuade candidates to give us time to digest any last minute mud-slinging.

This doesn’t mean that we won’t still talk to candidates or can’t be persuaded to allow some news to be posted. However the threshold is much higher for the next two days.

The news isn’t on hold. We established a page for you to read political news from other sources here: http://www.wellesparkbulldog.com/other-local-news/2237

The Facebook page will be updated with news on a regular basis. And, if you are a Facebook member you can use the comment feature of Facebook to discuss news there.

About Patrick Boylan

Patrick grew up near LaFollette Park on the West Side. He contends that the very best Italian beef sandwiches are made on the West Side and has a strange love of the flat pizza from that part of the city. Patrick led The Bulldog to win seven journalism awards in 2011, including four awards to Patrick as a solo or a team member. He is very proud of The Dog's coverage of politics and schools in the neighborhood. Patrick wrote for the Times of Northwest Indiana as a stringer covering Cook County Government, for the Chicago Tribune as a stringer on the Chicago Wolves and for ChicagoNow as a writer before starting The Dog. He wrote for four years for ChiTownDailyNews.org as a media commentator and spent about 20 years in operations at city newspapers, including nine years as owner of his own distribution company. Prior to that he spent about nine years in public relations. Patrick has a Masters degree from the University of Colorado. He attended Eastern Illinois University for undergrad and Weber High School and St. Peter Canisius grammar school. The two-flat he owns was built in 1912 and has never been featured, to his knowledge, in any major motion pictures despite having a way-cool garden. Patrick purchased the property in 1994 and "couldn't afford to buy it now." His daughter is a college student in California. He lives in the house with his wife, Jane, and two cats who often sit in on his phone interviews.
