Take this list with you when you vote to help you make an informed decision.
In the 49th Ward Democratic Party, the members of the party, not the elected officials, make the endorsement decisions. They are progressive-minded volunteers, not paid political workers. They make their endorsement decisions after hearing from all the candidates in an open and democratic process. As the 49th Ward Democratic Committeeman, I heartily support their recommendations.
Finally, we can use your help in the final weeks leading up to the election, as well as Election Day itself. These endorsements mean nothing unless people know about them. Your help is critical in getting the word out. Please reply to this email or call the 49th Ward Democratic Party at 773-973-4949 and we’ll sign you up!
Regardless of whom you support, I strongly encourage you to vote.
