(A Message from Tom Sharpe, 46th Ward Democratic Committeeman)


I wanted to make sure you knew that you could vote early for 46th Ward Alderman any day except Sunday between now and March 31st.  The 46th ward’s early voting location is Truman College at 1145 W. Wilson in Chicago — voting hours are 9 AM to 5 PM. Please bring a government issued photo ID with you to vote early.

As we prepare to elect a new Alderman, the stakes have never been higher for the 46th ward.  James Cappleman is the only progressive candidate in this race and the clear choice to fight crime and create businesses and jobs.

James was recently endorsed by IVI-IPO, one of Illinois’ largest and most respected clean government groups, Equality Illinois PAC, an organization championing equal rights for LGBT residents, and the Chicago Teachers Union, representing our city’s educators.  He also received a stirring endorsement from the Chicago Sun-Times:

“In the runoff, we’re backing James Cappleman, a former teacher and social worker with deep roots in this fiercely independent ward. Cappleman has a broad and detailed vision for attracting businesses to the ward, fighting crime and giving residents a greater say in ward decisions. Cappleman and opponent Mary Anne “Molly” Phelan, a real estate and tax attorney, don’t differ significantly on the issues but do in experience…we prefer Cappleman because we believe he would be more independent. Cappleman already has many long-standing, constructive relationships in the ward and has displayed a willingness to reach out to those with whom he disagrees.”

James also has the endorsements of the 46th Ward Democrats, Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky, State Senator Heather Steans and other respected Democratic leaders.

As a testament to the fact that James can build bridges with many communities, a number of James’ former competitors from the first round of voting are hosting a fundraiser for him on Sunday:

You’re Invited To A Unity Fundraiser For James Cappleman
When:  Sunday, March 20, 2011
Where: Holiday Club, 4000 North Sheridan Road
: 6:30 PM
Suggested Contribution: $50

The Unity Fundraiser is being hosted by former aldermanic candidates Scott Baskin, Emily Stewart, Andy Lam, Befekadu Retta, Caitlin McIntyre and Diane Shapiro. 

The Host Committee has pledged to match dollar for dollar the first $1250 raised to support James Cappleman in his bid to become the next Alderman of the 46th Ward. 

Come out and learn why James has garnered the respect and support of so many former aldermanic candidates.
