A biking, walking and transit champion running for re-election to city council on Chicago’s North Side needs your help.
Alderman Harry Osterman has successfully partnered with neighbors, block clubs, small business owners and community stakeholders to improve public safety and attract new businesses, adding vibrancy and jobs to all corners of the diverse communities of Edgewater, Andersonville and Uptown in the 48th Ward.
Harry has been an active transportation champion throughout his tenure as alderman because he believes that promoting walking, bicycling and upgrading transit service creates healthy and sustainable communities. He has established a cyclist/pedestrian working group and will be hosting community meetings on the Red/Purple Modernization program this spring.
Over the last 8 years, his team has vastly improved the infrastructure in the community by repaving streets, adding new lighting, new bike lanes and pedestrian safety measures like speed indicator cameras on Broadway and Sheridan, all designed to make our community safe, livable and walkable. Alderman Osterman led the effort to build the new Argyle streetscape, the first shared street in Chicago, to promote walkability, safety and vibrancy.
Alderman Osterman now asks for your help and requests you to bike, walk, or take transit to volunteer so that he is re-elected as your active transportation champion in city council. He could use a hand on Election Day 2/26. Please remind your friends and family to Vote!
