If you live in the 48th Ward and have been feeling left out by the many, many candidate forums in the 46th Ward, we've finally got one for you. The Tenant Leadership of Mercy Housing is holding a forum on Wednesday, February 2nd:
"I want to extend an invitation to you as residents of the 48th Ward on behalf of the Major Jenkins and Delmar Tenant Leadership. Next Wednesday, Feb. 2nd, Tenant Leadership will be hosting a 48th Ward Forum at the Major Jenkins Apartments at 5012 N. Winthrop in the Community Room from 6:00pm-8:00pm.
All five of the candidates running for 48th Ward Alderman have been invited, and we have received confirmation from Harry Osterman and Steven Chereska. Tenant Leaders have prepared a structured forum with questions posed to the candidates regarding Affordable Housing, Neighborhood Safety, Jobs, Accountability, Mental Health Services, and more. Upon completion of the structured program, there will be a 30 minute reception for audience members to speak individually with candidates.
