Surely you have heard about Mayor Daley...

He plans to retire at the end of his term. The next municipal election is in 2011. We have candidates here in the 6th seeking to make a run and then we have to contend with a mayoral race without an incumbent.

The mayor surely had a good quarter of a century sitting on City Hall's 5th Floor, but he feels like it's time for him to move on. He's been taking a beating since he was re-elected in 2007, but that's not to say he doesn't have a positive legacy.

Our city is going through tough times. The economy isn't doing very well, the city is struggling to generate revenue for various services the city provides. Jobs are a little difficult to come by currently. Just as importance is the concern with regards to violent crimes in our city. So the new Mayor of Chicago will have some challenges to face. Something all aspirants will have to consider.

A question to ponder: How might the 6th ward fare under a new mayor?
