About This Event:
Northside DFA has invited candidates in the IL-02 special election to respond to written candidate questionnaires. A few have decided to do so, including Sen. Toi Hutchinson and former Rep. Robin Kelly. Former Congresswoman Debbie Halvorson, the other frontrunner, has so-far declined to respond to the written questions and her campaign has said neither Halvorson nor a representative will participate in the NDFA forum.
NDFA has a verbal commitment from the owner of the Green Olive to host the forum there.
When? Saturday, February 9, noon to 2:00 PM
Where? Green Olive, 13501 S. Avenue N, Chicago (Hegewisch)
Who? So far, in addition to Hutchinson and Kelly, Anthony Williams and Patrick Brutus have responded to the questions. Both the campaigns of Ald. Anthony Beale and Joyce Washington have expressed intent to respond.
Transportation: There is plenty of parking and the Green Olive is near the train station (South Shore, aka "Northern Indiana Commuter Transportation District", the Metra equivalent that goes to South Bend, IN) and the #30 CTA bus stops one block away.
Please RSVP for the event. The bar does have a capacity of 90 people. We would like to keep track of how many seats we have to offer the public. Also, NDFA wants to coordinate so people can travel together.
You can RSVP in one of several ways:
1) Through this online poll (best) http://www.doodle.com/tuu6ube48fzcnbm3
