Quote for Mark Brown's article… Notably missing from this list is Harry Osterman, an aldermanic candidate in the 48th Ward, who was the beneficiary of a campaign mailing sent this week to 48th Ward voters on his behalf by For a Better Chicago.
For a Better Chicago indicated earlier that it might mail out campaign materials "independent" of a candidate, which arguably would not trigger a disclosure requirement. Such mailings are very expensive and could make For a Better Chicago a major player in the closing days of the campaign. Some opposing political operatives believe the group is holding back the bulk of its money to make a stronger play in the April 5 runoff.
Dear 48Th Ward Voters, you have 5 candidates for Alderman in the 48Th Ward. Please stop the machine.
The 48th Ward Democratic Party will be meeting on February 5th at 2 p.m. at Margate Park Field House for the purpose of making an endorsement in the race for Alderman.
Patrick McDonough is running as an independent. I am not one to pass up a beautiful woman's invitation, and I do not intend to change! I will not attend the event, thanks for the invite.
