Chicago Tonight: 6th Ward candidate forum

[VIDEO: Part 1, Part 2] The first segment (duration 8 minutes) embedded above on WTTW Wednesday night featuring not only Roderick Sawyer who we already knew was appearing on Chicago Tonight. It also included Ald. Lyle the lady he seeks to replace on the Chicago City Council.

The second segment is web exclusive video that you can also access on the WTTW 6th Ward runoff page. It was a continuation of the discussion in Part 1. Duration is 8 1/2 minutes.

In both segments there is a good discussion. Ald. Lyle caught my ear about turning our neighborhood schools into community centers offering social and educational services after school to not only the students but also to their families or the rest of the community. Sawyer mentioned the land where the Rhodes Theater once sat and noted that nothing sits there now. Especially noting that the retail on 79th Street is stagnant.

So went from more local issues here in the 6th to more city wide issues such as level of city services or where the city might be able to cut spending or raise revenue.

Also note that Roderick Sawyer will appear on Garrard McClendon's Off 63rd Thursday night at 6:30. I hope to encourage you all to call in with any questions for the challenger Roderick Sawyer. Whether you talk to him on the phone or otherwise offer Garrard a comment on many of his FB pages.
