Phil Bernstein speaks at EBNA

48th Ward Aldermanic candidate Phil Bernstein spoke at last night’s EBNA block club meeting to both EBNA members and non-EBNA Edgewater residents alike about his campaign. Phil began the evening by outlining his qualifications for the role which include an education in economics (including an undergrad and graduate degree, along with PhD coursework in the field), experience with large public works projects and his experience as a small business owner. Phil also spoke about initiatives and issues he would address at the local and City Council level, if elected, including cutting costs/expenses, revamping the property assessment process, economic development within the ward, reducing crime and pushing for vouchers in the education system. In addition, Phil vowed to donate one-third of the Alderman salary back to local charities, open 2 ward offices with a new staff and seek input from the entire community on issues by posting information & proposals on the web.

The meeting was well attended, thanks to both Phil Bernstein for accepting the invitation and EBNA President Killian Walsh for moderating and opening the meeting to the entire Edgewater/48th Ward community.
