"A source sent me the following, which I understand was circulated to an email list of Aldermanic Candidate Retta's supporters. Have Alderman Smith and former Alderman Volini really already endorsed a candidate for the open seat in the 46th? If so, why the choice of Candidate Retta over the others?"
"Our first Fundraiser at the Ethiopian Diamond Restaurant was a great success!
We had so many supporters who attended. What made this event even more special was that I received the endorsements from our good friends in the neighboring 48th Ward--- Alderman Mary Ann Smith, former Alderman Marion Volini and former Committeeman Michael Volini. Also we had in attendance Cook County Clerk David Orr who spoke about the importance of getting involved in the electoral process by voting and urging friends and family members to vote.
The committee of this event, who put it all together, did a wonderful job. Our special thanks to Ethiopian Diamond Restaurant owner, Almaz Yigizaw and her staff for hosting this memorable event.
For those who did not make it, you can still mail your donation to Friends for Befekadu T. Retta, 5041 N. Kenmore Unit A Chicago, IL 60640, or drop it at the Ethiopian Diamond Restaurant. For farther information and upcoming events please visit www.retta46.com.
Thank you and On to Victory!"
