Mark your Calendars!

Please mark your calendars for Feb 19th & 20th for two candidates forums I have organized.

The forums will take place and will be hosted by;

• Saturday Feb 19th from 2 – 5 pm at the Irish American Heritage Center,
4626 N Knox Ave, Chicago, IL, in the Erin Room, their Grand Ballroom.

• Sunday Feb 20th from 5 – 10 pm at the Veranda Restaurant,
5700 W Irving Park Road, Chicago, IL in their main dining area.

Refreshments and hors d’oeuvres will be available at both forums, cash bars.

The forums will be an Open Meet & Greet style, whereby average citizens may walk directly up to the candidate and meet the candidates, one-on-one, in an open, no pressure environment. A unique experience.

The candidates and their current attending status at time of this print are as follows…

As with all the candidates, a staff member has also been invited to assist and answer for the candidate in their absence.
