Proviso Probe

Monday, April 23, 2007

M08, meet candidate for Congress on Saturday [IL-04]

Congressman Luis Gutierrez (D-Chicago) is retiring. The district includes Stone Park and a portion of Melrose Park.

Three elected officials are known to be interested in running for the seat: Cook County Commissioner Roberto Maldonado, Alderman Ricardo Munoz and Alderman Danny Solis.

Former Northlake Alderman Eddy Garcia will hold a meet and greet for Munoz at Garcia's restaurant, Los Cazadores, 1113 Lake, Oak Park on Saturday morning at 10:30 AM. Garcia invites concerned voters to come and ask Munoz about issues affecting the suburbs.

Garcia will host Maldonado and Solis at future dates.

The district connects Latino neighborhoods on the North Side and South Side by rapping around the 7th Congressional District (downtown, West Side, Oak Park, River Forest and much of Proviso Township). After the 2010 Census the map will be adjusted. The 4th Congressional District could include more Proviso precincts after the remap, the same precincts or no Proviso precincts.
