  1. Committee Updates

We are proud to introduce our new Treasurer Zoby Soto. Zoby has been a resident of Avondale for some time, and we are happy to have her serve on the ANA board. On June 20th, ANA also had a meeting with the Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) to discuss the Belmont Blue Line renovation. We are communicating with the CTA in respect to signage, proximity issues, ride share drop-offs, and other concerns the community has expressed. If you have any questions or would like to learn more, please do not hesitate to email us, message us on Facebook, or visit us at our upcoming meeting. We want to ensure that all community members have an equal opportunity to voice their concerns.

6. Presentation:

ANA also welcomed 33rd Ward Aldermanic candidate Rossana Rodriguez-Sanchez to speak about her vision for the 33rd Ward. As en educator, activist, and community member, Rossana spoke about community issues in regards to education, immigration,  employment, foreclosures & evictions, among others and why they are important issues an alderman should address. Rossana is the founder of the 33rd Ward Working Families and works alongside the organization to address community issues in the 33rd Ward. Rossana is up for the 33rd Ward Aldermanic seat against Ald.Deb Mell for the upcoming 2019 Chicago aldermanic election.

Please also note that ANA remains a non-partisan organization and does not endorse any candidates. All candidates, however, are allowed a space to speak to residents about community issues.
