Aldermanic Candidates Make Their Pitch at Garfield Ridge Civic League Forum

Our thanks to the Garfield Ridge Civic League for staging a candidates forum at St. Jane de Chantal's Ward Hall on Wednesday, January 21.

The nearly 100 people in attendance heard from two of the
three 23rd Ward aldermanic candidates. (Alderman Michael R. Zalewski was a last-minute no show, with a political operative offering the crowd a medical excuse.) Plus two mayoral candidates were represented. Second Ward Alderman Bob Fioretti was received warmly, and 22nd Ward Alderman Ricardo Munoz spoke briefly on behalf of candidate Jesus "Chuy" Garcia.

The Southwest Chicago Post was there with camera and
tripod, recording the event, for the thousands of Southwest Siders we serve and who were not there.

We shot the event gavel to gavel, C-SPAN style, with almost no editing, so you can see and hear the candidates for yourself and draw your own conclusions, rather than read a filtered version in a newspaper.
