23rd Ward Hopefuls Make Their Pitches At Archer Heights Civic Assoc. Event

Our thanks to the Archer Heights Civic Association for
Martin Arteaga and his wife, Michelle
including a candidates forum within its February 11 meeting, held at the UNO Veterans Memorial Campus, 47th and Kildare.

The roughly 130 people in
Anna Goral speaks with voters
attendance heard from two of the 
three 23rd Ward aldermanic candidates. (Alderman Michael R. Zalewski was a last-minute no show, with AHCA officials expressing surprise and confusion over his unexplained absence.)

Other no-shows who AHCA officials said had earlier
Arteaga and GRCL President Rick Techman
confirmed were Mayor Rahm Emanuel and Cook County Commissioner Jesus "Chuy" Garcia.

Also on hand and speaking were 14th Ward Alderman Edward M. Burke, who is running unopposed for re-election; 22nd Ward Alderman
Goral and HCO President Joann Williams
Ricardo Munoz, who is running for re-election; and 22nd Ward aldermanic hopeful Robert Martinez.

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.

Our plan was to shoot and present unedited video of each of
Arteaga supporters at the door.
the three aldermanic candidates in the 23rd Ward, in their entirety. Below is what we shot in that regard.
