August meeting: more aldermen, more candidates -- come!

We're looking forward to our next meeting: we'll hear from aldermanic candidates CM!Winters-Palacio (21st Ward), Maurice Robinson (29th Ward), and Maureen Sullivan (11th Ward); as well as Jason Patt, who is running for sheriff in Lake County.

We'll also vote on endorsements for Sheila Simon, Mike Frerichs, and Denice Davis (running for alderman in 46th Ward).

The other item on the agenda will be action days for our endorsed and adopted candidates -- it's time to get involved and get some work done.
