Erika Wozniak Forms Committee to run for 46th ward Alderman

CPS teacher Erika Wozniak has formed a committee to run for Alderman. Renner Barsala of Haymarket Books is on board to work on her campaign, likely as treasurer. Wozniak is vehemently against the TIFS that Ald. Shiller created. Both of the above mentioned are new residents of Uptown. Should be a fun election season!

    Wow -- is this thread negative. Is Cappleman feeling threatened?

    Based on everything I've read, Ms. Wozniak is an Uptown resident and a teacher. She appears to have an interest in helping to create a thriving community with strong services for the ward -- especially public schools. I followed the sign controversy and am familiar with ONE Northside (which has several members of the clergy from various faiths on its board, so I'm not sure how one can make an argument that they have a "commie agenda").

    Obviously people who have commented here want to organize against her candidacy (or possible candidacy -- I don't see anything announcing that she's formed a committee). That's your right. But the smear campaign appears to be pretty thin, if your main talking points are that the possible candidate threw a "hissy fit" and that she has "commie supporters."

    As for me, I'm going to go outside to enjoy the sunshine. Seems like some of you should do that as well.

    K,
    Thank you for the tip. I’m already enjoying my day.
    There is no smear campaign. Let’s wait and see, as for One Northside, you skipped over the reported abuses, or is the fact that they have clergy from various faiths mean that there was absolutely no abuse. Selective reading
    Doesn’t make anyone informed .
    Enjoy your day, no need to further the discussion as we clearly disagree on many levels.
