Artists for Migeul Del Valle

February 10, 2011 7-9pm

Co-Prosperity Sphere

3219 S Morgan Street

Chicago Il 60608

Join us Thursday February 10, 2011 from 7 to 9pm for a chance to meet and ask Chicago Mayoral candidate Miguel del Valle some questions regarding the arts in Chicago.

We have joined a group of concerned citizens who find Miguel’s progressive stance on the issues as our ONLY alternative in this historic and important election for Chicago’s next Mayor.

If you believe that money cannot buy an election and if you believe you have a voice when it comes to choosing a candidate that aligns more closely to your interests than the other candidates, please join us.

We want to ask Mr Del Valle what he will do to promote the arts and culture in Chicago and get him to re-create an independent Department of Cultural Affairs in Chicago. We also want to know how he can help creative industries in Chicago and see if he has plans to improve the state of the arts in Chicago.

We are conducting an art raffle during the event to benefit Miguel’s campaign. As you know he refuses to accept campaign money from businesses that have contracts with the city. So your help will go a long way.

Please come by.

Spread the word.

We usually do not throw our hats in for any politician. A real grassroots campaign can make a difference..

Don't forget to register to vote.

We were checking out Steve Vances awesome local Bridgeport neighborhood blog and came upon his suggestion that you register to vote.. thanks steve:

From his blog:

"While you await the results of my interviews with the three Aldermanic candidates, please ensure you’re registered to vote in the 11th Ward. If you recently moved within Chicago, you need to update the Chicago Board of Elections with your new address so you get a more convenient polling place AND so you can vote for the 11th Ward alderman.

The election is on Tuesday, February 22, 2011. You have until Tuesday, January 25, 2011 to register to vote or change your address. If you don’t change your address in time, you have to vote at your assigned polling place."
