Last night at Weegees

CTU Prez Karen Lewis called on the Mayor to raise taxes on the wealthiest Chicagoans rather than closing schools.
As advertised, we had lots of fun and raised some dough for the CORE Caucus of the CTU. Speeches were short and sweet. Lots of love and community building over good food and drink(s).

DNAInfo was there. Writes reporter Victoria Johnson:
Michael Harn, 45, a truck driver who came to show his support, said he thought Lewis and CORE have done a great job over the last three years, and wants to see them come back. "They ran the most successful strike in 100 years," he said, adding that failing to re-elect Lewis would be like "the Cubs winning the World Series and not bringing the managers back."
