If you live in the 46th Ward, we encourage you to vote for up to six of the nine proposals eligible to receive a million dollars of the ward's menu money. This is the only week voting will be open, to all ward residents 16 and older. Show up with an ID at the alderman's office (4544 N Broadway) Monday, Tuesday & Thursday, 9am to 5pm; Wednesday 9am to 7pm; and Friday 9am to noon. You can also vote this Saturday at Uplift High School, 900 W Wilson, between 10am and 2pm.
If there's a particular proposal you feel strongly about, send us something explaining why it should get your neighbors' votes. We ran one yesterday about #7 (traffic calming on Leland). We'll run one blurb for each proposal. Dazzle us!
But the most important thing is, get over to the Ward Office or Uplift and VOTE! Here's a sample copy of the ballot you'll be using:
