I’m not even going to work. My wife’s car swerved into oncoming traffic but she’s ok. It’s a mess and a lot of the schools don’t want to cancel because they’ve already used enough snow days.

Our election will be a runoff between the top two candidates right? Hate that I cant remember how this works and I've been here like 16 years.

Have no idea who to support. Kozlar was the only person that said "yes" to the question on this WBEZ quiz about trying to solve the pension crisis, even if it means screwing current and future city workers. I mean that's our biggest problem from a budget standpoint right? But he has no chance and boarder xxx-xxx-xxxx says he is a weiner and I believe him.

if you guys are on the south side ever, i would try to find a copy of the South Side Weekly, they've been putting a lot of energy into profiling candidates as thoroughly and objectively as possible.

also
this thread/account is good. i thiiink this guy works or helps out at city bureau? I know the City Bureau folks like him.
I know what you did last summer, but i just don't give a shit

runoff unless one candidate gets over 50% of the vote (fun fact, rahms re-election was the first time we've actually had a runoff)

I am not deciding who to vote for until the day of the election, too much shit keeps coming out to make an informed decision. extremely disappointed with this crop of candidates, not a true progressive leader in the bunch.

lightfoot or enyia i guess? and neither has an actual chance. what a nightmare. might just leave the mayoral ballot blank on the general and vote against daley or mccarthy in the runoff if it comes to that

Lightfoot can win, I think there's a very decent chance she sneaks into the runoff at #2. Enyia's campaign is a total shitshow and I wish she ran for Alderman in Austin instead of running citywide again.

lightfoot is making a late break for sure, the sun times endorsement was a big lift. i'd still take preckwinkle over her though

Somebody give me the dirt on Chico. My mom, who is not registered in the city, but who’s opinion on these matters I value highly, has been pulling hard for him for a long time now. I think Enyia is my real pick but I’m also trying to gather as much info as possible on everyone else for when this inevitably comes to a run off.

well, a large plank of his last run for mayor was getting the Super Bowl to be played at Soldier Field on the first weekend of Feb, so that's basically how big of a dipshit he is that only has a career because he was part of Richard M Daley's circle

Chico sucks. Two bit punchline of a politician who runs for everything and loses. In deep with burke and the other corrupt Chicago politicians. I have no confidence in enyia after we learned more about her previous experience. Toni is probably our best bet.

Yea I mean, I already knew the Daley connection. We’re fucked. I can’t believe the best I’m realistically hoping for is Preckwinkle making it to the run-off, jfc.

Yeah, I dunno what is the reason this all went side-wise, is it how much the machine is still lingering around? It's basically an infectious disease that is fucking over whomever it touches at this point, feels like we won't truly get a real progressive set of politicians until the old machine hanger-ons (Burke, OConnor, Solis, even Madigan) are completely gone from the political scene

I believe it will eventually happen but these dusty old farts are refusing to let go, it's really discouraging

Wtf on earth? People are still getting shot, dying on the street from untreated illnesses and soliciting for crack in front of my apt in uptown. Whitewashing the conditions for people in uptown because some of the ravrnswood/Andersonville shine wore off on Lawrence and broadway makes my stomach turn. Uptown has a lot of resources for the homeless pop. but the writings on the wall when I see shit like that. Anybody got a clue about the 46th ward race? I gotta get active

i think it was just a bunch of factors folding in on itself. first you get rahm's surprise announcement not to run for re-election. i kinda thought he was doing it because he was worried he'd get hammered during his campaign about the laquan macdonald coverup and could potentially lose in a humiliating way. it's clear now he got out because he saw the hammer coming down on burke and knew the fun times were over and he needed to get out before he got pinched.

that left a vacuum and no way was the machine gonna let a bunch of nobodies who were running hail mary campaigns against rahm, so preckwinkle and mendoza jump in, and either they didn't know the feds were taking down city hall or they foolishly thought they could shrug it off. so the machine is consuming itself and may have mortally wounded susana and toni, leaving has beens like chico and daley to fill the void.

so the machine is flailing, and the grassroots campaigns are all in disarray as well. i wouldn't be surprised if no one breaks 15% in round one. we are so fucked.

i like marianne lalonde and will vote for her, but erika wozniak seems most likely to force a runoff with cappelman.

Holy shit look at this poll

In the poll, conducted in both English and Spanish from Feb. 11-13, Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle barely leads the 14-person pack with 14 percent of the vote.

Following her are:

Bill Daley: 13 percent

Susana Mendoza: 12 percent

Lori Lightfoot: 10 percent

Gery Chico: 9 percent

Amara Enyia: 7 percent

Jerry Joyce: 4 percent

Willie Wilson: 4 percent

Garry McCarthy: 3 percent

Paul Vallas: 2 percent

Bob Fioretti: 1 percent

LaShawn Ford: 1 percent

Neal Sales-Griffin: 1 percent

John Kozlar: ----

The leader of the pack was "Undecided" at 19 percent.


Shit is wide open
