Residents in the communities surrounding the 46th Ward are now approaching their own aldermen regarding Ald. Shiller's plans that adversely affect their communities. (Think of Ald. Mary Ann Smith's staff member, Nancy Meyerson, speaking out against Labor Ready at the Zoning Board, and reps from Ald. Gene Schulter's office sitting onstage at the Town Hall meeting about Uptown's crime.)
If only residents of the 46th Ward had an advocate to turn to....!
As a follow-up to our Wilson Yard meeting hosted by Graceland West, we are organizing a group of neighbors to attend the open meeting session at the Alderman's office on this Wed. (9-10-08) at 7:00 PM. We hope to discuss with him how this project will impact our neighborhood. Please join us at the 47th ward office, 4237 Lincoln.
UPDATE from the comments: "PLEASE NOTE: The meeting with Alderman Schulter for September 10 has been postponed until further notice. Alderman Schulter is out of town."
The quoted material is from a mailing sent by Graceland West block club. The Fix Wilson Yard organization suggests a final sentence of "If you want more information on how this project will impact the community and how you can help, go to www.fixwilsonyard.org."
