Public Newsroom 114: Alderperson Accountability in Austin

August 15, 2019 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm America/Chicago Timezone
Austin Community Academy High School
231 N. Pine Ave. Chicago
IL 60644

It’s been 100 days since city council elections, and to celebrate the Public Newsroom will be hosting a series of workshops all August on alderperson accountability. The series will be tackling two questions in wards around the city: What has your alderperson been up to since taking office? How do can we hold city council accountable in between elections?

We’ve co-designed activities with Chicago United for Equity and powered by work from City Bureau’s Documenters program ( to walk attendees through these questions. We’ll unpack what committees your alderperson is on as well as budget spending, service delivery and development in your ward.

This week we’ll be in Austin talking about the 28th, 29th and 37th Wards—including Alderpeople Jason Ervin, Chris Taliaferro and Emma Mitts respectively.

This workshop will be hosted in room 107 in Austin Community Academy High School. Attendees can park on Pine and enter through door 1 or park behind the school and enter through door 8. The latter has wheelchair access.
