Weekly Update for the Alderman – May 11, 2018

 May 11, 2018

Dear Neighbor,

This Teacher Appreciation Week I want to take the time to thank the outstanding teachers in our community who put constant effort into helping our students become great individuals. These teachers make a big impact in the lives of the children in our community and city. I truly appreciate how they provide a positive voice for the future generations of our nation.

On Tuesday, I joined Mayor Rahm Emanuel and Principal Mary Beck at Senn High School to announce a 3 million dollar capital improvement for the school. This renovation project will involve critical updates to the classrooms, the career and counseling suite, locker rooms, the gym, and the front entrance. The project was funded through tax increment funds from the Clark-Ridge TIF. This investment provides a step forward to improve the school and support Senn students. I want to congratulate Principal Beck, and the rest of the Senn faculty and staff on continuing to provide a great education for its students, through their outstanding education and International Baccalaureate and their Fine Arts programs. With this renovation, students will keep succeeding and growing in one of the best schools in Chicago. To learn more about Senn’s recent advancements please watch this video.

This past Wednesday, the Andersonville Farmers Market, located on Berwyn between Clark and Ashland, opened to a variety of vendors such as Defloured Bakery American Pride Microfarm, First Slice Pie Cafe, and more. Join me in finding locally sourced produce every Wednesday from 3 to 8 pm through August 29 and from 3 to 7 pm September 5 through October 17. Andersonville is now home to a podcast called #AlwaysAndersonville: The Podcast, which features local business owners on weekly episodes. Farmers Market manager, Joan Oberndorf, will be featured alongside Kate Williams of Chicago Patchwork Farms on a bonus episode of #AlwaysAndersonville: The Podcast. Take a listen.Lastly, I would like to wish a Happy Mother’s Day to all of the mothers in our community. The foundation of where we are today as a community was built on the dedication and involvement of many moms (and a few dads) who got involved to make our diverse neighborhood a great place to live. I want to thank all the mom for all they do for our community. Enjoy the weekend eating at one of our local restaurants, shopping at a local business, or watching a theater performance. 

Sincerely,

Harry Osterman
Alderman, 48th Ward
