The 47th Ward Democratic Organization is here to serve our community on Chicago’s north side—our neighborhoods, our schools, our blocks. We do it by helping residents vote and identifying the candidates who will stand up for core Democratic values like opportunity and equal rights for all. Sometimes residents hear a lot about well-publicized races for president or governor but don’t hear enough about less glamorous races that have a big impact on our lives. The 47th Ward Democratic Organization works to serve this community’s residents by electing good public servants up and down the ballot. “Rosenfeld and Pawar have joined forces. They are united in an effort to combine TIF funds with corporate dollars to improve their neighborhood schools to attract new families to the 47th Ward and keep them there.”
