Kick off your Halloween weekend festivities with a fun event that will support the 49th Ward Participatory BOOdgeting Project. Showcase your Halloween finery. Don your costume (or not) and join us at the Glenwood Bar, 6962 N. Glenwood, Saturday, October 30th, 4:00 to 7:00 p.m., for Halloween treats, drinks and fun!
A $10 door fee gets you a shot of witch’s brew, and along with a raffle, you’ll help support the Participatory Budgeting Project’s outreach efforts.
The 2010-11 Participatory Budgeting process is off to a great start. Over 60 neighborhood residents have volunteered to serve as Community Representatives and will soon begin the process of selecting infrastructure proposals to place on the 2011 ballot.
Over 1,600 ward residents voted at last April’s Participatory Budgeting election. The 49th Ward Participatory Budgeting Leadership Committee and I want to double the voter turnout next year and get every sector of our diverse community to participate. The Aldermanic Infrastructure Menu cannot fund outreach efforts. That’s why we’re depending on you to support the cause of democracy in the 49th Ward!
So join us for an afternoon and evening of revelry to support the 49th Ward Participatory BOOdgeting Project!
