January meeting coming up:next Tuesday, January 8 - start the new year right

Happy New Year! Let’s hope this year sees everyone with much joy and peace – and sees a resurgence of peace around the world, as well as better times for all of us.

Meanwhile, here in Chicago, we meet again next Tuesday, January 8, at the Lincoln Restaurant (4008 N. Lincoln, parking in rear off of Irving Park, two blocks from the Irving Park Brown Line stop). As always, we meet at 7 pm, with a 6 pm dinner/social hour beforehand.

We’ll be talking about “Redistricting: one year out” with an emphasis on the redistricting in the city. To that end, we’ll hear from a speaker from MALDEF (Mexican American Legal Defense and Education Fund), as well as Alderman Bob Fioretti.

The other topic for discussion will be plans for the debate for the candidates in the 2nd Congressional District. There will be one vote for voting members to consider: whether we agree to vote at the February meeting on endorsement of candidates in the 2nd Congressional District special election based on hearing them at the debate.

So come and join us, and participate in the discussion. We look forward to seeing you there!
