    "Do you think Rahm's contractors' people are out there beating the bushes for him in these last few days?"

    We've gotten about a dozen calls from Rahm's side. Nothing from Chuy.

    Tho Chuy did make an appearance outside my kids school shortly before the first election--there are few parents in the hood who are very pro-Chuy, and presumably orchestrated it. Believe that that is mostly about the school board--which cannot be a bona fide elected body w/o action from Springfield.

    John: I agree that debates are probably the best way to get a sense of the candidates. As far as Harold Washington goes, we would be lucky to get someone like Harold again. Never was the Mayor's office as open to community groups as it was during the Washington administration. He knew that he had to get white and Hispanic votes as well as black votes to get reelected, so he spent his time in neighborhoods all around the city. I knew people in his economic development office and they all were very dedicated to bringing resources into the neighborhoods. Garcia just does not have the same voter base as Washington did, nor does he have the same sheer charisma. That is not to say that Garcia isn't very dedicated to making neighborhoods a top priority. He is, and that's his strongest suit. But I got to see Washington close up, working a crowd, and he drew energy from being with people like no politician I have seen since. He loved people of all colors.

    P.S. As a side comment to people running for office; All things being equal I will vote for the person who does not call the other candidate names. The "At least I'm not as bad as xxxxx" is a red flag. Kind of like the ISIS slogan; "Hey, at least we are not Comcast"
