Once a year, Ald. Patrick O’Connor takes his act on the road and holds a series of Town Hall meetings. For area residents who were carved out of the 47th Ward during the remapping process and deposited into the 40th, these public gatherings, which kick off June 11, are one way to get the lay of the land and meet your new alderman.
O’Connor, who’s been representing the 40th since 1983, is expected to deliver a State of the Ward address and to answer questions from attendees. The local police commander will also be on hand along with representatives from Streets & San and the Building Department.
