TATUM knows that the people of the 26th District deserve the best possible representation and;
1. Ranoule is very concerned about the future relationship between the newly appointed CEO of The Chicago Public Schools and The Chicago Teachers Union.
2. Ranoule will give a report on his testimony at the recent Illinois House Redistricting Committee Hearing in Chicago that took place yesterday at Chicago State University; he will discuss his position calling for certain measures which will insure fairness and Transparency in the redistricting process. The future of the African American, Hispanic and Asian communities are at stake.
3. Ranoule will call for the question as it relates to the clear LACK of Transparency and fairness as it relates to the upcoming process and candidates considered for filling the vacancy of Will Burns, the current State Representative in the 26th District and now Alderman-Elect of the 4th Ward of Chicago.
