SHARE Quinn’s Galewood neighbors aren’t a fan of his dandelion forest

Gov. Pat Quinn won’t be winning any Green Thumb Awards from his neighbors anytime soon. That’s because they’re complaining that the yard of his home in Galewood is overgrown with weeds — and is desperately in need of being cut.

DNAinfo Chicago says the condition of his lawn is a serious source of aggravation for Quinn’s neighbors.

One of those agitated neighbors says there are “footlong dandelions all over.”

Worst on the block. … I don’t know what’s worse, the front yard or the back, the neighbor said.

Quinn’s spokeswoman, Brooke Anderson, says that Quinn is a good neighbor and that taking care of the lawn is “on his to-do list.”
