We got Rahm for four more years

At least on my part of the south side there were a number of Chuy Garcia signs and then over the past weekend on street corners I observed some "Fire Rahm" signs - even posted a pic on Instagram. Then I wonderd if this was more about the Mayor than Chuy.

The media seemed to have been telling us that people were angry with Emanuel. They wanted change and him out of office. Perhaps for a moment Garcia was getting some momentum after drawing a runoff with the incumbent.

Then today came and Emanuel was able to pull off a win. In addition these results from WTTW shows that a number of incumbent Alderman especially two for sure on the south side have been defeated.

In the 2015 election both in February and today we have seen some turnover there will be a number of new Aldermen on the new Chicago City Council. Many of these new Aldermen contested open seats and of course many defeated an incumbent Alderman. So time will tell if there will be change on the city council.
