Tonight the alderman is sponsoring a public safety meeting so the West Ridge community can meet Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson and the commanders of the two police districts that protect West Ridge residents, Roberto Nieves of the 24th and Elias Voulgaris of the 17th.
Petition circulators will be available outside the Horwich Center so you can sign the petition in support of participatory budgeting if you haven’t already done so. You will need to know which precinct you live in, and that info’s available on your voter’s card. We’ll be on the sidewalk rather than on the Horwich property so as not to be in the way as people enter the building.
The meeting is at the Horwich JCC, 3003 West Touhy, at 7 p.m. tonight.
