Ward Remap Town Hall tonight at Malcolm X College

I know this is short notice, but it's worth mentioning if you can make it tonight to Malcolm X located at 1900 W. Van Buren (actually right off the Eisenhower Expressway).
Want to have a say in how your community is represented on Chicago’s City Council? The Chicago City Council Black Caucus will be hosting a town hall meeting on the new proposed ward map for the City of Chicago at 7PM this Thursday, September 29th, 2011. The Town Hall will be held at the Bruce K. Hayden Center for the Performing Arts, at Malcolm X College (1900 W. Van Buren). Alderman play a central role not only in setting public policy for the city that affects residents, but also in providing essential public services to neighborhoods and residents.
BTW, I learned at the recent Roseland Heights meeting that the neigborhood is to be drawn into the 9th ward and Ald. Beale has already made overtures to that organization. That being said the President of the Roseland Heights Community Association is talking as if "it's a done deal".

Also, another RHCA member last night had a copy of the West Chesterfield newsletter one of the articles is that they have a petition to express their displeasure over being drawn out of the 6th Ward and into the 9th Ward. Their FB page has a post about a meeting on Oct 4 at 6 PM to be located at 9351 S. Michigan Ave. Hopefully I can see if I can see the mood of that organization and/or get a copy of their newsletter.
