45th Ward Candidate forum set for January 26

Per Facebook message received from Meril Miller, a consortium of neighborhood organizations are co-sponsoring a candidate forum for candidates running for Alderman in Chicago's 45th Ward.

The forum is scheduled for Wednesday January 26 at 7:00pm (with, Miller says, a "meet and greet" at 6:30) at the landmark Copernicus Center, 5216 W. Lawrence Avenue. According to the Old Irving Park Association website, Ben Joravsky of the Chicago Reader will serve as moderator.

Candidates vying to replace outgoing Ald. Patrick J. Levar are (in ballot order):

Don Blair,
John Garrido,
John Arena,
Anna Klocek,
Marina Yolanda Faz-Huppert,
Bruno Bellissimo, and
Michael Fitzgerald Ward.

Miller advises that groups sponsoring next week's forum include the Copernicus Center, the Jefferson Park Neighborhood Association, the Portage Park Neighborhood Association, the Old Irving Park Association and the Mayfair Civic Association.
