Follow me this Friday, September 21st, from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m., to vote early at the 49th Ward Service Office, 7356 N. Greenview (at Jarvis). After you vote, join me for fried chicken, mac and cheese and liquid refreshments (including margaritas, beer, wine and soft drinks).
This is our tenth participatory budgeting election 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 for some food and refreshments.
