Re: “Hey, Mayor Rahm, reopen the mental health clinics!

Rahm won a second term because 1) Preckwinkle refused to run which no one still understands why because she would have creamed him in the election 2) Karen Lewis got sick (or Rahm followed an old KGB trick and put plutonium in her food) and was forced to drop out 3) Chuy Garcia was a truly horrible candidate. Uncharismatic, lackluster who couldn't give a seech to save his live and was disasterous in the debates and 4) faced with those two options no one came out to vote basically giving what little votes to Rahm. One other thing remember that it wasn't Chuy who forced Rahm into a runoff but Willie Wilson with his 10% of the vote whch was all protest against Rahm. If it wasn't for that Rahm would have won the primary and beat Chuy and there would not hace been any runoff

Re: “Do Chicago voters have Rahm-related buyer's remorse yet?

I wish I could make it on May 5th but I can't due to another commitment but let's face facts Chuy was a lousy candidate who ran a lousy campaign. (Though Quinn's re-election campaign was even worse. He practically begged Rauner to beat him) In other to start a movement you need someone who is inspiring and charismatic to lead it and Chuy sure as hell wasn't it. he had all the excitement of an accountant. I think Rahm could have easily been beaten (even he had all outspent everyone) if he had been up against a more aggressive candidate who had some real answers that voters who latch on to. And I'm convinced that he was not Karen Lewis' first choice to run in her place. She's a lot smarter and savvier than that and I believe she she asked others but they turned her down before Chuy agreed

It's not the red lights but those damn potholes that still haven't been repaired is why I'm driving 20 MPH
