Take the Pride Parade Survey

440px-Rainbow_flag_and_blue_skiesFrom Alderman Tom Tunney, 44th Ward:

"Each year, City departments meet to recap what went well and what can be improved upon after each Pride Parade. I have created a Pride Parade survey to hear from you as we continue to examine the pride parade route and evaluate all options for next year, which could include a move downtown. Please click here to take the survey. It will be available until Friday, September 5 and we will follow up with feedback from the survey."

ELVN encourages all its members and residents of the 44th and 46th Wards to take part in this survey.
