Candidate Forum Report
We, at the Chatham Avalon Park Community Council, were pleased to attend a Candidate Forum at the New Covenant Missionary Baptist Church at 77Th and Cottage Grove Avenue on Saturday, November 14, 2009. Property taxes and the moratorium on the increase of them have ended this year. Jobs expected from the federal stimulus grants to the state did not materialize in the black community in Chicago. Candidates discussed the issues of the day in these areas for the upcoming campaigns for the February 2, 2010 Democratic primary.
