Free Legal Assistance For Any Contestable Red Light Violation, Parking Ticket And Ordinance Violation
Since the Mayor and the City Council agreed to lease the Chicago parking system there has been a rise in the cost to park and an increase in the number of parking ticket violations. Some of these violations were groundless, but some residents of the 27th Ward chose not to contest them because they did not know their rights or did not want to take the time to contest. The Campaign for Change has a solution for both of these issues facing the 27th Ward.
Free Legal Assistance For Contestable Ordinance Violations
The Campaign for Change believes that the Alderman should be working to help the people of the 27th Ward. Free legal assistance on a groundless parking ticket, red light violation or ordinance violation is a great place to start. The legal assistance would give residents free advice on Administrative Court cases for violations that occur in the 27th Ward. An attorney could be available one day per week for legal assistance at the court. Hearing dates on a parking ticket, red light violation or ordinance violation for 27th Ward Resident can be rescheduled to accommodate an attorney, if needed.
Red Light Violation And Parking Ticket Amnesty And Bill Of Rights
Another way to benefit the residents of the 27th Ward is to implement an amnesty program and a Parking Ticket Bill of Rights. The amnesty program would forgive the first three parking ticket and red light violation occurrences each year. The Parking Ticket Bill of Rights would enable residents of the 27th Ward to recover some of the expense for having to appear at the Administrative Courts for a groundless parking ticket or red light violation.
How The 27th Ward Alderman Can Provide Residents Free Legal Assistance
An Alderman gets roughly $90,000 to use for renting an office and hiring staff. In many cases including the 27th Ward, the money is used by the Aldermen to upgrade to luxury vehicles and to hire relatives and campaign supporters.
Instead of using of this money to benefit the Aldermen, their relatives and their campaign supporters, at the Campaign for Change we believe this money should be used to benefit the 27th Ward. We propose the installation of a virtual office for the 27th Ward. In addition, a portion of the expense budget can be used to hire attorneys to provide free legal assistance to the 27th Ward residents. At the same, the Alderman can offer 24-hour access and better support for the 27th Ward.
