Chicago City Council: Don't Give Away Our Parks!

The Green Party of Chicago says, Aldermen, Don't Give Away Our Parks -- Vote "No" to Rahm Emanuel's Grab for Public Lands

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel wants the City Council to give away acres of public land from either Washington Park or Jackson Park for the creation of the Obama Presidential Library. 

The Obama Library should be in Chicago. But it should not be taking our public park open space, especially when there are better options that don't give away public lands.  

Let's tell the City Council to Protect Our Parks - and reject Rahm Emanuel's attempt to give away public park land!

    I am an aldermanic candidate in the 11th Ward who is for the Obama library being built in Chicago, but not on our public park land.

    DO NOT give up public land for buildings! Use lots already vacated…not park land.
