Rogers Park Community Council Announcement

Rogers Park Community Council Announcement SMALL ACTS ADD UP TO LIFE CHANGES Dear Friend, In my four years as Executive Director of the Rogers Park Community Council, I have personally witnessed how meaningful the service provided by our program staff has been for the scores of clients who have passed through our doors.

The Next Alderman of the 49th Ward

The Next Alderman of the 49th Ward By Edward Mcclelland: For the last month, there’s been a rumor that Gov. Pat Quinn is considering appointing Ald. Joe Moore as head of the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency. Moore has been on the City Council since 1991, tying him for fourth most-senior alderman, and he has long been open to a new job. In 2000, he ran unsuccessfully for Clerk of the Circuit Court. Last year, he considered running for state representative.
