Just hours before Alderman-elect Ameya Pawar is set to be sworn in as Alderman of the 47th ward, Center Square Journal sat down with him to discuss a number of topics, including the transition process, the building of a ward council, his staffing situation, and the question of office space.
CSJ can confirm that the Pawar organization has been working on outfitting the office space directly north of the old 47th Ward offices in the old Jazz Record Mart location. In addition, the 3-person staff will include Charna Epstein as Chief of Staff, former Mary Ann Smith staffer Ernie Constantino and a third staff member that has yet to be determined – so feel free to keep sending those resumes.

As we said in our first podcast in March, we hope to continue these regular conversations with Alderman Pawar, so if you have any questions or concerns about the 47th ward you’re welcome to contact us. Thanks for listening!
