Hello! My name is Rebecca Zemans. I’m the new Area 5 representative to Alderman Ameya Pawar’s 47th Ward Council. I created this blog so that it will be easier for everyone to find news about meetings, events and general excitement around our lovely neighborhood. Area 5 is geographically situated between Montrose and Lawrence, Ravenswood to Ashland. Currently, I own a home and a jewelry business all of which are located in Area 5.
Alderman Ameya Pawar’s vision for the Ward Council is to have us inform him as an advisory council so that we can influence his decisions for items such as budget and zoning and maintain the extraordinary character of the 47th ward. To do that, I need your help. Please follow this blog or email me at eastravenswoodrep at gmail.com to get updates. We need everyone’s voice.
I’m very much looking forward to meeting and working with all of you.
Thanks for reading,
