Cook County Budget Town Hall

"Via Commissioner Bridget Gainer’s office"

Cook County Commissioner Bridget Gainer created a “Citizens Guide to the Cook County Budget” to provide a road map for taxpayers to the $3.5 Billion dollar annual County budget. After consistently hearing from her constituents, local neighborhood groups and Chambers that good information on the County budget was impossible to find, Commissioner Gainer organized a presentation that breaks down the $3.5 Billion dollar budget into information people really need: where does the money come from, where does it go, and who makes the decisions about how to spend it.

Residents of Uptown and Edgewater are invited to attend the Town Hall and weigh in on county spending. This Town Hall is sponsored by the Business Partners - Chamber for Uptown, the Edgewater Chamber of Commerce, Andersonville Chamber of Commerce, Buena Park Neighbors (BPN), North Uptown Neighbors Association (NUNA), Neighbors of Edgewater West (NEW), Edgewater Beach Neighbors Association (EBNA), and many other local groups.

The Town Hall will be held: Thursday, January 13th at 7pm in St. Augustine Hall at 1345 W. Argyle St. Please contact Mike Simmons in Commissioner Gainer’s office with questions: 312-603-4210 or This email address is being protected from spam bots, you need Javascript enabled to view it Commissioner Gainer’s legislative district covers all of Uptown and Edgewater.
