Details of the town hall meeting that just took place this evening are still trickling in, but the word from those who attended is that the turnout was phenomenal. We are told that Alderman Shiller sat in the front row with her back to the audience and did not say ONE word to those in attendance, not even commenting on what she is doing to help combat crime in Uptown. Representatives from the 47th and 48th Wards were there and spoke and were even on the panel of speakers, but not one peep from our own alderman. Were you there? Let us know what you saw and heard in the comments. Oh, and Christie Hahn from Uptown Business Partners...you rock.
Update: Fox Chicago was at the meeting. Their coverage can be seen here. The coverage is great until the end when the anchor mentions that Ald. Shiller was not on the panel but her chief-of-staff was. Another example of people confusing "Shiller" and "Schulter." Dan Luna from Gene Schulter's office was on the panel but Alderman Shiller's own Denise Davis was sitting in the front row. The 46th Ward was NOT represented on the panel.
