Do you want to feel good again about democrac...

Do you want to feel good again about democracy and voting? Each year, I receive over $1 million from the City's "Aldermanic Menu" Program to spend at my discretion on infrastructure improvements in the ward. Rather than me deciding how to spend the money, I turn the decision-making power over to the residents of my ward through a process known as “participatory budgeting.” Community volunteers come up with proposed project ideas and the entire ward votes on the proposals they would most like to see implemented. I agree to abide by the results of the vote. The process for determining how to spend next year’s budget begins NOW. Over the next two weeks, I will host six “Neighborhood Assemblies” (five in English and one in Spanish) throughout the 49th Ward where people learn about Participatory Budgeting and begin to brainstorm ideas on projects they would like to see in the ward. The first assembly takes place TONIGHT (Monday, April 23rd), 7:00 p.m., at Sullivan High School, 6631 N. Bosworth (between North Shore and Albion). Come early before the meeting at 6:30 p.m. and join us for free pizza, courtesy of J.B. Alberto's. https://www.ward49.com/news/decide-how-to-spend-1-million-of-your-money-participatory-budgeting-begins-tonight/

Feds: False Change Of Address Moved UPS Headquarters To Rogers Park Apartment

Apartment 2 at 6750 N. Ashland Av. became the address for UPS corporate headquarters in October, after the man who lives inside filled out a change of address form at a post office, according to a federal affidavit. UPS corporate mail then was redirected and delivered to the apartment.

    Feds: False Change Of Address Moved UPS Headquarters To Rogers Park Apartment
    CHICAGO (CBS) - UPS headquarters might be in Atlanta, but for almost three months, hundreds if not thousands of pieces of its corporate mail were delivered to a small unassuming garden apartment in the Rogers Park neighborhood in Chicago. That corporate mail included tens of thousands of dollars in business checks.

The next round of participatory budgeting is about to begin! This is when you and your neighbors decide how to spend over $1 million in improvements for the 49th Ward. Each year, I receive over $1 million from the City’s “Aldermanic Menu” program to spend at my discretion on infrastructure improvements in the ward. Nine years ago, I implemented a “participatory budgeting” process in which the residents of my ward decide directly through popular vote how those tax dollars are spent. Since then, scores of cities across the nation have emulated our process and just recently Participatory Budgeting became the subject of a PBS documentary. The process for determining how to spend next year’s budget begins NOW. Over the next two weeks, I will host six “Neighborhood Assemblies” (five in English and one in Spanish) throughout the 49th Ward. The first assembly takes place Monday, April 23rd, 7:00 p.m. (complimentary pizza served at 6:30 p.m.) at Sullivan High School, 6631 N. Bosworth (enter through the door in the middle of the block). If you can’t make this assembly, there are five more to choose from.

I welcomed to the 49th Ward today Bob Kingsley, who is the owner of GreenGate Chicago, a medical cannabis dispensary that provides much needed relief to people who are diagnosed with debilitating medical conditions. The dispensary opens officially on Tuesday, May 1st, but today Bob hosted an open house to give neighbors an opportunity to look inside the beautiful medical facility at 7305 N. Rogers, meet the team who will be dispensing the medication and learn more about the Illinois Medical Cannabis Pilot Program. They are also signing up eligible recipients for a medical cannabis card. One of my City Council colleagues prevented Bob from opening the dispensary in her ward and I was happy to step in to fill the void by supporting his facility in the 49th Ward.

Comcast Xfinity dumping Big Ten Network in much of U.S. — but not the Chicago area

Red Rush's 1963 Loyola NCAA title call remembered: 'We won! We won! We won!' »

    Comcast Xfinity dumping Big Ten Network in much of U.S. - but not the Chicago area
    Comcast says it is dropping the Big Ten Network, co-owned by the 14 conference schools and Fox, from its Xfinity service in states without Big Ten schools. While Chicago-area Xfinity subscribers will not be affected, the move means fans and alumni who are Comcast customers in so-called out-of-market areas would lose access to the channel.

    Get lucky with a Friday the 13th tattoo
    What better way to celebrate the upcoming Friday the 13th in April than with a commemorative tattoo? Although it might seem contradictory to honor a holiday for the star-crossed and accursed, the tradition supposedly dates back to sailors - known for their "old school" body art - who tattooed the number "13" to ward off bad fortune.

A memorial service will be held April 30 at Pub626, 1406 W. Morse Ave., Chicago.

    Darryl Warren, actor, comedian and musician, dies at 72
    Darryl Warren was a longtime Chicago actor and comedian who got his start in show business playing congas and drums with the Chicago-based band the Buckinghams. "He was a great drummer, musicologist and linguist and it was all self-taught," said comedian Tim Walkoe, a longtime friend.

    Bill, do you understand that the theater company mentioned in the original post is NOT Chicago Shakespeare Theater? The locations mentioned in the original post most likely are the only ones in which Midsommer Flight will be performing "Two Gentlemen of Verona."
