An Aldermanic Election in the Air?We ought to have a vigorous discussion of the issues. There are many issues. What ideas does each candidate have for reducing the mega city budget shortfall? What changes can we expect with a new mayor and what role each candidate envision him having with a new administration? Is participatory democracy a good thing or does it unduly democratize decision-making that an alderman ought to be making on his own? What challenges does this neighborhood face in the area of public safety and coping with gang issues? How do we stimulate investment and further develop retail corridors, perhaps focusing the discussion on Howard Street? How do we help those who are facing any one of the numerous challenges in the area of housing - rental and home ownership? What about the TIF/RIF that one candidate has proposed?
