No Expense Account
Just so everyone knows, an Alderman receives a $10,000.00 stipend per year and a $4,500.00 expense account. The former 3rd Ward Alderman spent the $4,500.00 in four months, which means that I have no expense monies. So, when you get a magnet or card or newsletter, please realize that the monies paying for those items come from my stipend or salary if you will. Also, Alderpeople get free health insurance. I have elected to not take the free health insurance.

Comments:
It seems really crazy and wrong that the former aderman could have spent all of his money in just three months. However, I am moved that you are willing to establish a third ward charity and would be willing to help get money, find people who need someting etc.
 
I can't believe that there was no stipulations on the spending. This is crazy! Thank you for your honesty and keeping us informed as to what really happened and what willbe happening. I for one look forward to the changes coming!! Count me in as a volunteer. I will contact you directly.
