Win '15: A Message from 10th Ward Alderman-Elect Susan Sadlowski Garza
On behalf of my entire family and our campaign staff, I would like to humbly thank everyone who made this historic victory possible. To everyone who volunteered their time, offered donations, made phone calls, WE made this happen! To those who canvassed the neighborhoods of the 10th Ward and took the time to speak to their friends and family about this important election, WE made this happen! To those who labeled envelopes, typed emails and entered data, to those who brought food to the office for our volunteers, WE achieved this victory together! To all the people who took the time to volunteer on Election Day, WE DID IT-TOGETHER!
Our victory is one rooted in people power. Together, WE took on the powerful forces of corporate influence currently dominating our City's government. By pulling together, WE successfully harnessed the widespread desire for a better community which exists across the 10th Ward. What WE have achieved together these past few months, must be celebrated and viewed as an achievement of the people, by the people!
I am very excited to have the opportunity to serve all the residents of the 10th Ward as your Alderman. I am eager to build relationships with all residents and business owners in the 10th Ward, and to have the chance to move OUR Ward forward,
In the coming weeks, we will focus our efforts to ensure a smooth transition of office. I'll be reaching out to you for your help and support. Your continued participation and engagement in the decisions that directly affect you and your family will be critical to serving your needs and in effectively addressing the myriad of concerns across the Ward. Do not hesitate to contact me with any thoughts or concerns.
Please accept my gratitude regarding this victory, and I hope you will join me in an effort to move The 10th Ward forward
In Solidarity, Susan Sadlowski Garza 10th Ward Alderman-Elect
