CHANGE Illinois Action Fund statement on remap deal
CHICAGO, IL – If 41 or more elected council members proceed with a backroom map no Chicagoan has seen, the people of Chicago will have been completely and blatantly disrespected and dismissed by the very people who are supposed to represent them.
For years, people in Chicago have made it clear they want a say in shaping their wards and their communities. For so many elected officials to turn their backs on the people and break their repeated promises in order to yet again serve their own self interests is beyond disheartening. This Madigan/Kasper map serves the Chicago Way and nothing more. The people deserve far, far better.
