This is nothing new. I was a CPS student in the 80's and all the local politicians would go to the school to get kids to put up signs and go door to door for them on Saturdays. The school not only allowed it, they encouraged it. Teachers would give us "extra credit".

Of the remaining candidates, can someone please tell me who has the best policies for reducing the crime in Chicago?

I honestly am going to be a single issue voter this time. Whoever has the most convincing plan to tackle crime gets my vote.

How anyone could actually vote for her I’ll never understand.

Worst thing to happen to the city since the Fire.

Either Kam or Vallas will get my vote. Currently researching both. Lori’s last minute “OMG, my haterz!!!!???!!!” campaign just shows how hopelessly out of touch she is.

I’m supporting Brandon Johnson. He has a strong stance on key issues that align with my beliefs. He also has the backing of other progressives in Chicago and orgs like CTU

It’s funny for her to even ask when CPS and the CTU hate her.

This really isn't the scandal people want it to be, this is standard campaign stuff. They got a flyer in their inbox.

This should immediately disqualify her from public office. This is absolute insanity
