They might someday have a tiff over TIF districts, but 1st Ward Alderman Sam Hill and 4th Ward Alderman Dorothy Flanagan and in lockstep these days.
That's because America's cutest aldermanic couple is a dance team in the upcoming, nerve-wracking, tension-building Feb. 9, 2013, Dancing With the Geneva Stars event.
Presented here are photos from lessons and practice routines of our intepid ward representatives, who are lucky there are no other aldermen dancing or they'd be in violation of the Open Meetings Act.
This year's DWGS takes place 7 p.m. Feb. 9 at Eagle Brook Country Club. Open seating is $40 per guest, which includes hors d’oeuvres, dessert and cash bar and an evening of great entertainment.
The easiest way for you to make a reservation and vote is to go directly to the Dancing With the Geneva Stars website: www.genevarts.org.
Voting will continue until Feb. 8. One dollar counts as one vote.
Every year, the event has sold out, so make your reservations right ... NOW! The committee promises an evening of fun-filled entertainment with 12 local celebrities competing for your votes.
Also new this year is the chance to win an iPad. For $10, you can play the heads-tails game and go home a winner. And, finally, to end the evening of entertainment, there will be a twist dance-off followed by an evening of open dance.
There is a limit of 370 ticket reservations available. Ticket price is $40 for open seating, which includes hors d'oeuvres, dessert and an evening of fun entertainment. A cash bar is also available.
