Dear 2nd Ward Voter

,
Hello, I’m Stacey Pfingsten. I entered the race for 2nd Ward Alderman for you. I wanted
to make sure you had an experienced, independent candidate backed by the people and not the
political machine. Tens of thousands of dollars have been pouring into this race from special
interests*: lobbyists, developers, and out-of-state donors, to my opponents backed by Rahm,
Daley, and Madigan. There is a lot at stake.

PROVEN EXPERIENCE
On the campaign trail, I have gotten to know and listen to many of you. I have heard frustration
with pot hole filled streets, rat-infested alleys, red light cameras, and a scarcity of good
public schools despite high property taxes. While working in the current 2nd Ward office for
Alderman Bob Fioretti, I initiated the rat sterilization test pilot for the City of Chicago and
brought resolution to many constituent concerns. 32nd Ward Alderman Scott Waguespack and
I have partnered on issues ranging from advocating for an elected school board to landmarking
buildings like St. John’s Lutheran church in Ukrainian Village.
PROVEN INDEPENDENCE
Thanks to your support I beat an aggressive machine-backed challenge to stay on the ballot.
Working for two of the most independent aldermen in council, we fought against the mental
health clinic and school closures, against ill-planned privatization, and for greater TIF
transparency. I am proud to be endorsed by Alderman Waguespack, who was one of only five
aldermen to vote against the parking meter deal.

I have pledged to not accept developer contributions now and once in office.
We need fresh leadership free from corrupt pay-to-play politics.
Our 2nd ward neighborhoods and our city should not be for sale.

As your Alderman I will fight for our communities and for greater fiscal responsibility for our
city. As Alderman Waguespack has said: “I know Stacey will make the tough calls on behalf
of taxpayers.” And I will.
I would be honored to represent you. Our victory will make it clear that a different kind of
politics is possible in Chicago. Your vote for me on February 24th will make that happen.
Thank you,
