Three Aldermen to Speak to Garfield Ridge Residents About New Ward Map's Meaning

Alderman Quinn
Chicago's new ward map and what it means for people in Garfield Ridge will be discussed at two public meetings on Monday, October 15.

Thirteenth Ward Alderman Marty Quinn will speak at a meeting of the Garfield Ridge Civic League, set to start at 6:30 p.m. in the library at Kennedy High School.

Alderman Burke
Quinn will then join 14th Ward Alderman Edward M. Burke and 23rd Ward Alderman Michael R. Zalewski at a meeting of the Garfield Ridge Neighborhood Watch, set to start at 7:30 p.m. in the underground meeting room at Wentworth Park.

Alderman Zalewski
"In recent months, a lot of people in Garfield Ridge have had questions about the new ward map or expressed dissatisfaction with it; but it is what it is, and the important thing at this point is to make sure that the three aldermen who will represent our community work together for the good of Garfield Ridge," stated GRNW President Al Cacciottolo at a recent public meeting. "I have already seen quite a bit of evidence to suggest that's exactly what will happen, and we will be well served. But what we're doing Monday is giving the aldermen an opportunity to give us their views directly, and give Garfield Ridge residents a chance to speak with them face to face---not only about crime prevention, but about city services and community improvement in general."
