Re: “Incumbent alderman Michele Smith is fighting for her political life in the 43rd Ward

Caroline Vickrey is not authorized to practice law. She was the Vice Chair of a Local School Council. Alderman? Her plan won't improve traffic. It will merely kill businesses on the Lincoln corridor. She is behind the lawsuits against Lincoln Elementary School and the CMH development. A lawsuit to prevent our children from having enough seats at the top ranked neighborhood school in Illinois? A lawsuit to prevent enough density to support the businesses on Lincoln Avenue. She showed up to protest the new playground at Alcott. She advocates for kicking Lasalle magnet out of our district, the top magnet school in the state and home to several hundred neighborhood students as well. The start and the finish of her campaign can be summed up as "I am against our Ward schools receiving money and I am against businesses having enough local residents to support them if either get in the way of the sun shining on my backyard.

Michelle Smith has worked tirelessly to support our schools. She has been key in Lincoln High School becoming wall to wall IB, Alcott getting their field of dreams, Newberry getting a new playground, and Lincoln getting enough seats and an update to the entire facility. AND YES there will be a playground both on the ground level and on the rooftop.
