we've got signatures, help us get to 5,000 by July 7, 2012
We the undersigned understand and respect your desire to address multiple needs and requests of the citizens of Chicago in a time of difficulty, particularly financially.
As you had outlined during your campaign, TIF dollars are available to spend on necessary services, and the safety of your citizens--our fellow citizens--is decreasing.
We urge you and your committee to expedite the consideration of TIF fund expenditures and to include a disbursement to expand the Chicago Police Department's officer force by 1,000 to address the growing concern and needs of the citizens of Chicago.
We appreciate the amount of responsibility you have undertaken in leading our city of Chicago. Safety and security keep citizens alive and in Chicago, and it is our hope that you consider at length the importance of securing the safety of our future generations.
Thank you for taking the time to review our petition proposal, and we look forward to hearing from you.
