For purposes of this Agreement, a political organization or party is an identifiable group or entity that has as its primary purpose the support of or opposition to candidates for elected public office.





|10 10|
Individual political activities are the activities of individual persons in support of or in opposition to political organizations or parties or candidates for elected public office.

(iv) In the event of any communication to the Chicago Park District by a City employee or City official in violation of Section 7.23(ii), or advocating a violation of Section 7.23(iii). the Chicago Park District will, as soon as is reasonably practicable, report such communication to the Hiring Oversight Section of the City's Office of the Inspector General ("IGO Hiring Oversight"), and also to the head of the relevant City Department utilizing services provided under this Agreement. The Chicago Park District will also cooperate with any inquiries by IGO Hiring Oversight related to this Agreement.


IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the Chicago Park District and the City, acting through the CPD have executed this Agreement as of the date first written above.
