Hundreds of Senn supporters visit Ald. Smith

From Chi-Town Daily News:  Hundreds of students, teachers and North Side residents gathered outside an alderman’s home last night to protest plans to reorganize Senn High School…

“Ald. Smith, you were elected to represent us,” said Father Dominic Grassi of St. Gertrude Catholic Parish. “You have not come to the table, so we’re going to bring the table to you.”

Father Paul Koch of Ebenezer Lutheran Church rang the bell at Smith’s home as the crowd sang, “This Little Light of Mine,” but no one answered. He taped a letter to her door invoking Jesus’ instruction to “let the little children come to me.”

“We pray that you have a change of heart and recognize the value of diversity and the potential of all youth in our community,” it said.
