    Don Gordon

    A life-long Chicago resident, and long-time community activist, Gordon began teaching courses on political reform, transparency in government and Chicago political history at Northwestern University in Spring 2009. Gordon was an aldermanic candidate in a hotly contested run-off race in Chicago's far north side 49th Ward in 2007. His first book, “Piss ‘Em All Off: And Other Practices of the Effective Citizen”, is based on 30 years as a community organizer and his experience running for political office. He has just completed his second book on transparency in government, published by Prometheus Books and due out Spring of 2014. Both his books and his courses reflect the insight and experience of being inside the belly of the beast of Chicago politics.
