Since the beginning of September, I’ve been hitting the streets with my “Satellite Service Office.” This is where my staff and I set up a few tables outside and meet with 49th Ward residents, taking city service requests and hearing other matters of concern.
Perhaps you’ve already visited one of my outdoor mobile offices. If not, you’ll have more opportunities this month. I’ll be stationed at various outdoor locations on Saturday and Sunday mornings throughout the month of October.
Joining me will be community volunteers from the 49th Ward Participatory Budgeting Project who will share information about the upcoming Neighborhood Assemblies. They’ll answer your questions about our innovative democratic process in which the residents of the ward decide public spending priorities.
Stop by to learn more about participatory budgeting or simply provide me with a city service request or issue of concern.
Please note I’ve added a few new Satellite Service Office locations this year. On Saturday morning, October 13th, I’ll be greeting my future constituents at the Devon Market, 1440 W. Devon (at Greenview) and onSunday morning, October 14th, I’ll be saying hello to the new members of the 49th Ward family outside St. Ignatius Church at Glenwood and Loyola.
The new ward boundaries will soon take effect and many folks who shop at the Devon Market or attend mass at St. Ignatius will be new 49th Ward residents. Say hello to your new alderman!
Below is the Satellite Service Office schedule for the rest of October. I will be at the following locations from8:30 a.m. to 12 Noon:
