A big 'shout out and thanks' to the Gale Park Advisory Council for a very well planned, organized and conducted, open community meeting, to discuss the future of the GP Community Center. A special tip of the hat to organizers and council members, Eva McCann, Toni Duncan and Sister Cecilia Fandel, for a job well done to inform the community on the issue. Believe me, your dedication and hard work on behalf of our neighborhood, does not go unnoticed and is greatly appreciated by all. Additional thanks to Jasson Perez, SEIU, Local 73, for his support and comments! FYI; the sentiment of those attending, based on the public comments from about 20 residents in attendance, was 20 to one AGAINST the plan to 'privatize' the new, as yet unopened Gale Park Community Center. And, least we forget, we want to thank Alderman Joe Moore, for NOT making it a priority to get the Community Center opened in time to provide Chicago Park District summer programing for ALL. Another job well done in the best interest of your constituents, Joe. NOT!
