Aldermanic Candidates

By reading EveryBlock and Galewood.net, I learned there are 5-6 candidates for Alderman in the 36th Ward. Villegas, Vittorio, Vazquez, Zaragoza, Aquino and Tenuta.

It's only 3 months until the election.

Villegas, Vittorio and Vazquez are the only three of the group who have made any effort to reveal themselves or any platform to the community. Villegas is the only candidate that I have noticed putting himself out there and showing sincere interest.....with the other two V-guys close behind in...

By reading EveryBlock and Galewood.net, I learned there are 5-6 candidates for Alderman in the 36th Ward. Villegas, Vittorio, Vazquez, Zaragoza, Aquino and Tenuta.

It's only 3 months until the election.

Villegas, Vittorio and Vazquez are the only three of the group who have made any effort to reveal themselves or any platform to the community. Villegas is the only candidate that I have noticed putting himself out there and showing sincere interest.....with the other two V-guys close behind in enthusiasm. Although a lifelong Chicagoan and primarily a Democrat, there is no way I can support the 26 year old candidate with little life experience just because many of his relatives are machine politicians. Call me cynical but ......

I mistakenly responded to a candidate in the 29th who told me to write to him because his platform would be too long to post on EveryBlock. Another said to look him up on Facebook. (I don't have a FB account because I don't want one; hello?)

Want to win an election guys? Tell us who you are personally, what you've accomplished, how you can make a positive difference and what you can do for your constituents. What makes you the man for the job?
