Re: “Aldermania!

This is pretty bad reporting, as you didn't mention those two other candidates in the 47th ward. The only thing Pawar might have going for him over Reichel and Jacks is the Trib and Sun Times endorsement, but Reichel rejected all corporate news endorsements on principle (Green Party candidate).

I will be voting for Reichel, as he is a Green (I will never vote for another Democrat in Chicago in my life) and he actually has an overarching worldview that puts this city's economic and social malaise into context. Furthermore, he supports a financial transactions tax and the introduction of a pollution tax so as to help close the budget shortfall. None of the other candidates in this race have addressed the need to find new revenue streams.

Re: “Post-Stroger Politics

I agree with Eddie: Quigley's head doesn't seem to be in his job in Washington. He has been a virtual nonentity in Washington and can't seem to figure out where he stands on any of the major political issues: health care, housing, foreign policy. He may have been better off in local politics. I will vote for the Green candidate against him: Matt Reichel.
