Dear Mr. Heilman:
A group of concerned citizens, along with local business people have asked me to be spokesman and organizer of the candidates' forum since the Oak Lawn Chamber of Commerce has removed themselves from this responsibility. However, the men from the [Johnson-Phelps] Veterans of Foreign Wars have volunteered to sponsor and let us use their meeting room as a venue. Moreover, the prestigious Union League Club has offered to be an impartial moderator.
It seems there is ongoing conflict with your scheduling. I know you said you have a fundraiser this Thursday. Therefore, in order to once again accommodate your schedule we will move the candidates forum to next Wednesday, March 27th, from 7 to 9 p.,. at Johnson-Phelps VFW Post 5220, 5214 S. 52nd Ave.
Most candidates that I have talked with, including members of your own slate, are anxious to address important issues that effect the well being of the Oak Lawn community. I know that you feel the same was as depicted by a recent letter you sent to Dr. Bury that was subsequently published in the Patch. Please, Please contact me as soon as possible as time is now running out with only three more weeks till election. You can contact me by either responding to this email or by calling my cell at 708-969-6484.
