rick perlstein had a post yesterday about how the top five are all within the margin of error of first and that this minimizes the importance of voting for toni as an anti-daley gesture as daley may not even make the run-off. vote your real preference in the primary, vote strategically if daley makes the run-off.

these candidates are pretty indistinguishable to me and i'm not even seeing a point in casting a mayoral ballot. if it comes to it i'll begrudgingly vote against daley in the runoff

everyone should be voting for their alderman though, your vote actually counts quite a bit, and most wards have at least one candidate worth supporting

thread:


even considering gambling as a revenue stream sucks ass but at least JB is prioritizing a progressive income tax and legalizing it (weed).

i'm ok with gambling just because i think vices should be legal. people will always gamble, drink, hire a sex worker, and take drugs no matter how many restrictions you put on it so might as well legalize it all.

also the fact that he's already factoring legal weed into his budget proposal makes me think they get that shit passed in the spring session, the language has already mostly been written already. maybe i'll be hitting up my weed shop by the end of the year?

i'm just weary of any legalized gambling as a regressive tax on the poor. dunno how sports betting compares to, say, the lotto or video slots.

like clearly people are gonna do what they're gonna do and i don't think you should get locked up for informally betting on a game or playing poker, but state-sanctioned gaming extracts more wealth from low-income communities by orders of magnitude. it's cannibalism.

this BEZ investigation from January on how governmental revenue from video gambling has fallen far short of initial projections since 2009 single-handedly changed my mind about legalizing gambling in Chicago. I used to be pretty blase about it - who cares, sure, can't hurt - but this now seems like absolutely terrible, regressive policy. very glad we don't legally have it in this city

damn, Rep. Kelly was a top aide to Preckwinkle in the county right before she ran for the House in 2013. increasingly convinced that Lightfoot has one of the runoff spots locked down

you know this race is depressing when your best case scenario won't even make you happy. if michelle obama announced a write in campaign today she could blast through that 50% threshold like it didn't matter.
