Please join Alderman Roderick T. Sawyer for a 6th Ward meeting focusing on our transit cooridors on the South Side of Chicago. Alderman Sawyer believes that strong transit corridors are necessary to stabilize our neighborhoods and is seeking public discussion on how the community has interacted with the transit system.
Saturday,
February 25, 2012
10 a.m. to Noon.

Chicago State University’s
Cordell Reed Student Union Hall,
95th and King Drive.

A host of transit projects and public safety matters on the South side have been ignored and deserve our attention to help stabilize neighborhoods, improve the economy, and generate city revenue. This forum is just the next step toward the goal of improving our transit corridors in the community.

  • I'm a happy for a discussion on this topic. My daughter was jumped on the cta bus on 79th and the Dan Ryan by girls she does not know. Nothing was done about. The bus driver did not call the police and nobody on the bus tried to intervene. I am tired of adults being afraid of children. It's time we stop having the "do for myself" attitude and look out for others as well. We are dsestroying ourselves as a people every day and each and every one of us seems to be standing idly by watching it happen. SAD we cant get mad when some other race talks about us.

  • If you attend the forum, please ask someone at the check in to point out Mr. Brian Sleet, chief of staff for the 6th ward. Please bring the situation to his attention.
