CHICAGO—(ENEWSPF)—August 19, 2016. Democracy In Action Chicago will present ‘Is Chicago Broke?’ on Sunday, August 21. The event will take place from 1:30 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the Sulzer Regional Library, 4455 North Lincoln Avenue in Chicago.
Mayor Emanuel claims we cannot afford many services without drastic tax increases. But are there other ways to raise revenues that are progressive and not regressive? Come hear Tom Tresser, Dick Simpson, Jackson Potter and Amara Enyia talk about their essays in the book, “Chicago Is Not Broke: Funding the City We Deserve.” They will speak about how Chicago got where we are now and viable alternatives to create the city we deserve.
Presentations will be followed by a Q & A session; book signing (price $12); leadership session on how to research relevant topics; and a crowd source research time for interested people. Attendees are encouraged to bring lap tops to do research.
Full details on the book and the authors are at www.wearenotbroke.org.
