We are out gathering signatures on our petition to bring participatory budgeting to the 50th Ward!
As you know, the alderman declined to attend our meetings or to signal any support for our initiative. We are moving forward.
We will be at the July 4 parade at Indian Boundary Park on Monday, July 4, beginning at 10 a.m. PB50 will host a lawn sign decorating event for kids, who will be able to decorate a lawn sign to take home or take a kit and lawn sign home to decorate later. All materials will be provided by PowrArts in support of the PB project. Lawn signs are available in two sizes for a small donation.
Margaret of MarGREAT’s Lemonade will be with us. She’s a 12-year-old entrepreneur earning money for college by selling her homemade lemonade, which was a great hit at the Devon Community Market the last two years.
On Tuesday, July 5, PB50 will collect signatures outside the Northtown Library from 5-7 p.m. and then attend the CAPS meeting with out neighbors scheduled for 7 p.m. at the Library.
Petition circulators are going door to door, and we are on track to get 40% of the signatures we need in just the next 10 days! Contact us if you haven’t signed yet (Ladymurphy1@yahoo.com).
Signing our petition is a great way to celebrate Independence Day!
