IVI-IPO Candidate Questionnare & Sun-Times endorsement

Concerned Citizens of Chatham: IVI-IPO Candidate Questionnare

Worlee posts the responses to IVI-IPO questionnaires from both Ald. Lyle and her challenger Roderick Sawyer. He gives a hat-tip to Uptown Update.

Also the Sun-Times will stick with their endorsement of Ald. Lyle in the April 5th runoff election. Here is their original endorsement in time for the February 22, 2011 municipal election
Ald. Freddrenna M. Lyle is in a tough fight to hold onto her seat against five opponents, including Roderick T. Sawyer, former Mayor Eugene Sawyer’s son. The ward, which includes east Englewood, Chatham and Park Manor, is struggling after a recent spike in crime. We’re backing Lyle. She’s smart, devoted to her ward and a newly constituted City Council needs her fire — though we urge her to use it more sparingly. It’s good to see several quality candidates running, locals who care about stabilizing their ward. In particular, we were impressed by Cassandra Goodrum-Burton, a lawyer who has a strong grasp of city issues.
BTW, early voting for the 6th Ward run-off continues through March 31st. Go no further than our Whitney Young Branch at 79th & King Drive.
