Invitation to Candidates in Contested 49th Ward Committeeman Races

Better to present that question to the existing candidates for 49th Ward Committeeman (both Democrat and Republican – yes, there is a contested race for Republican 49th Ward Committeeman as well)? Three questions come to my mind: a) What does a Committeeman do? b) Why are you the most qualified? c) Why should we care?

We are Family – and Village too.

There are plenty of decent and talented young people who live in this challenged neighborhood. These kids can potentially have a decent life and future – yet so many lack direction and positive interaction with adult mentors. Not all mentoring relationships can and will result in great success – that depends on a variety of factors, and the commitment that both the mentor and the mentee offer to the relationship.

About the Author

Mike G's photoMike Glasser

Mike has a long term relationship with Rogers Park, having lived here at various times in his life, most recently returning to the neighborhood in August, 2009. While living here as a third year law student, he remembers drunken nights at Biddy Mulligan’s and hosting a couple of memorable parties that he, hypocritically, now forbids his own tenants from having. Years later, after completing his stint as a lawyer, Mike started investing in apartment buildings in Rogers Park (and elsewhere), and soon after, did what many newly divorced real estate investors do: he moved into one of his buildings. In 1992 Mike was one of the founding members of the Rogers Park Builders Group, an organization that he eventually headed for six years, until yielding those reigns three years ago. Around a decade ago, on a whim, he reserved the web site “,” which he has been developing ever since, and which co-hosts RP BizArts networking events. Mike is the proud father of three wonderful children, Amy, Mitch and Ella.
