Meeting with Governor Pritzker and Mayor Lightfoot
We are still waiting for a date for the planned public meeting with Illinois Governor J. B. Pritzker to demand State action on two issues affecting our families and neighborhood:
- Funds for continued rehabilitation of vacant homes and apartments.
- Treatment, not incarceration of non-violent persons suffering from addiction or mental illness.
GOOD NEWS – The new Mayor, Lori Lightfoot, has committed herself to meet with the public on how the City of Chicago should become more involved in improving our neighborhood.
St. Rita Parish and SWOP are collaborating with United Power to plan these public meetings. Negotiations continue with the Governor and the Mayor to set the time and place. Plan to be at these meetings. Your voice is needed. Check the Bulletin in coming weeks for more information.
