SORT BY Relevancy
For the first time in Ferguson’s 120-year history, the City Council will have three African-American members, but even so, Tuesday’s election was less than a clear victory for the throngs of volunteers who poured into the city in a last-minute push to sway voters.Perhaps the most significant aspect of the results for Ferguson City Council was that 30 percent of the city’s 12,738 registered voters cast ballots — more than double the typical turnout.
The high turnout did not favor two candidates supported by protesters: Bob Hudgins and Lee Smith.St Louis.com
Mayor Rahm Emanuel won his fight for political survival Tuesday and vowed to be a “better mayor” in a second term because of the scare he got from Jesus “Chuy” Garcia.
With 98.5 percent of the vote counted, Emanuel had 55.7 percent to Garcia’s 44.3 percent. The turnout was roughly 40 percent, up from 34 percent on Feb. 24. That was not high enough and nowhere near the outpouring that Garcia needed to unseat the deep-pockets incumbent. Chicago Sun-Times

Candidates for office agree that economic development is the key to ending crime and poverty. The question we're asking today is what skills do YOU have that will attract businesses to your community? Do you know how to resolve issues regarding security, employee wages, and health benefits? What incentives can you offer, what points of negotiation have you considered that would attract both major chain stores and locally owned small business to set up shop in the area you want to represent? Beyond greatspeeches and a slick ad campaign, on this Election Day we want to find out what skills does a person really need to help run a city? Mayoral Candidate Jesus "Chuy" Garcia discusses his vision for Chicago anf Fifth Ward Aldermanic Candidate Robin Boyd Clark discusses her goals to create economically self sufficient communities.
Census figures indicate growing numbers of Latino citizens, based on new births and new immigrants. On issues such as immigration reform, multilingual education and minority set aside programs for contractors, African Americans and Latinos often find themselves pitted against each other as rivals for jobs, contracts and economic resources. Among men, both groups are often the recipients of racial profiling and media stereotyping as criminals. There are white gangs as well as African American and Latino gangs, yet when issues of gang violence are addressed white males are not the targets of police crackdowns, black and Latino males are. Chicago Mayoral candidates Jesus "Chuy" Garcia and William "Dock" Walls address the relationship between African Americans and Latinos and how it will affect this year's election.

"While the center of the city has flourished tremendously, we need to see the same vitality in Chicago neighborhoods and promised to hire 1,000 new police officers.There really is a contrast between the central business district and the neighborhoods,the editorial board. "Over the past few years in particular the contrast has sharpened. ... The neighborhoods have been left behind."said Cook County Commissioner Jesus "Chuy" Garcia.
As the mayor sat in the middle, his four challengers sat feet away, repeating a theme that Emanuel was more focused on downtown, and not so much on Chicago neighborhoods.
"Emanuel closed 50 schools, he has closed the mental health clinics in Chicago," said William "Dock" Walls.
Ald. Bob Fioretti, 2nd, had a chance to make headlines. He promised me before the debate that he wouldn't "back down" from his allegations earlier in the week that the mayor all but killed an investigation into a strong-arm robbery of Rahm's teenage son.
A new poll released Monday by Ogden & Fry, conducting weekly polls for the mayoral race, it appeared Garcia could force a run-off election.The poll showed Emanuel with a clear lead and 39.5 percent of the vote, Garcia with 18 percent, Wilson with 11.1 percent and Fioretti with 7.5 percent.
The Victory Research poll of 806 “likely Chicago voters,” showed Emanuel leading with 36.4 percent of the vote. Fioretti was in second with 18.2 percent of the vote and Garcia in third at 12 percent. Wilson and William “Dock” Walls followed in fourth and fifth place with 8.6 percent and 0.9 percent,here was a margin of error of 3.45 percent.
