Mayoral candidate Bob Fioretti and Dr. Amara Enyia

On Friday, Bob Fioretti will hold a press conference in the Lawndale community both in honor of the neighborhood where Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. lived when he came to Chicago, and also to roll out an economic agenda premised on many of the principles of equity espoused by Dr. King.

The press conference will be held today, Friday, January 16 at 3414 West Roosevelt, at 11:00 a.m.

Speakers will include former mayoral candidate Dr. Amara Enyia, President of the Black Construction Alliance of Chicago Willie Thompson, and housing advocate Mark Carter.

“Chicago is at an important crossroads,” said Fioretti. “We have an opportunity to create a thriving economy that benefits all Chicagoans, but it requires us to establish clear priorities about where we invest our resources. We want to demonstrate that this agenda is about the residents in our communities who deserve to have their voice heard in city government.”

*A copy of the policy will be available on Fioretti’s website, www.BobFioretti.com at 9:30am.
