FOX Chicago: Aldermen From All 50 Wards

I got wind of this series via Progress Illinois. I remember in 2006 ago I blogged a few profiles of Chicago Aldermen that were courtesy of Rick Kogan from the Tribune. All of the 50 Aldermen who were profiled. I blogged about two who were actually retired next year such as Ted Thomas who retired and Shirley Coleman who lost her re-election bid.

I look forward to seeing Alderman Lyle's edition of this series, but let's show one from close to home with Sandi Jackson from the 7th Ward. You can watch her vid. here as well.

What the series seeks to cover is what issues are important to Chicago's Wards. Perhaps you might have some issues in mind and share them here. Write a comment or send an email.

I have a few ideas economic development (especially job creation or the creation and development of businesses), education (especially for elementary and secondary school students),  and crime (especially discussing prevention in addition to the investigation and prosecution of crimes).

I just know these aren't the only ones so let the world know about your ideas!
