On Thursday, September 16, Berwyn held it’s 1st All Berwyn Committee Candidate’s Forum at City Hall. Before the meeting, we met Treasurer Debi Suchy, an active member in the Berwyn community. Suchy, who holds several positions, told us about several upcoming events in Berwyn. Oaktoberfest and Hobyfest and the 26th Annual YMCA Community Fest were only a few examples off her multi-colored calendar. She even invited us to the Roosevelt Road Business Association meeting which is being held at 8:30 a.m. on October 13th.
After a few more community members and council chairs joined us, the meeting began. After the Pledge of Allegiance, 8 new members of the Berwyn community were sworn into office, which was about half of the people in attendance. The next order of business was the upcoming election in November. Due to scheduling conflicts, only two candidates were able to come and speak, Robert C. Grota who is running for Cook County Assessor and Scott K. Summers who is running for the Illinois State Treasurer. .
The committee meets on the 3rd Thursday of every month and is open to the public.
