    How Can Elected Officials Create Jobs In Poor Neighborhoods?

    in Women

    Citizens are frustrated with the absence of economic growth in drug infested, crime ridden communities. The easiest way to get elected as alderman in such areas is to promise to bring "jobs". But is that a realistic promise? What does it really take to convince businesses to move into a high crime area? How does an "entrepreneur" generate revenue among the unemployed? How does one compete with the ever thriving drug business run by well financed street organizations that are propped up by a hidden hand that no one seems willing to expose? This week we'll talk to candidates that are promising to change such frustrating conditions and we'll give voters a chance to ask hard questions and determine whether they are getting real answers. Today's guest, 15th Ward Alderman Toni Foulkes, explains her vision for the struggling Englewood community.
