City Election Officials - Learn from the NFL!

The NFL’s preference has been for warm locations, because people enjoy warm weather – and, frankly, warm pleasant weather encourages folks to go out and do things. Elected officials in the City of Chicago pay lip service to wanting a robust election with high voter turnout. Is anyone fooled to think that holding a City election on February 24th encourages voter participation? Its not just the cold weather on election day that is of issue: consider the frigid weather conditions during the crucial weeks leading up to the election – early voting, and candidates canvassing neighborhoods and standing on and around El stations to meet voters. Do you really want to shake hands with a candidate and discuss issues when your fingers are so cold you fear they might fall off?

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.
