It all takes place this Friday, May 3rd, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Vote early at the 49th Ward Service Office, 7356 N. Greenview (at Jarvis), and then join me for fried chicken and liquid refreshments (including margaritas, beer, wine and soft drinks).
This is the fourth year of my “participatory budgeting process” in which I give residents of the 49th Ward the power to determine by direct vote how to spend the ward’s $1 million infrastructure budget. Vote for the ward improvement projects you would most like to see implemented this year and then join us from some food and refreshments.
If you can’t make it for my Follow Me on Friday event, or simply don’t feel like socializing, that’s ok. Early voting is taking place until 6 p.m. today (Thursday) at my Ward Office and tomorrow (Friday) from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. You can also vote early today (Thursday), from 3:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m., outside the Sheridan Road entrance to the Loyola “L” station.
Of course, the official Election Day is this Saturday, May 4th, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Chicago Math and Science Academy, 7212 N. Clark. In order to vote, you will need proof of residency (e.g., driver’s license, state ID, signed lease, etc.).
