In 14 city wards, no candidate was able to garner at least 50% plus 1 to avoid a run off. So there are run offs elections starting at 6 AM Tuesday. I
live in one of those wards. Look no further than The Sixth Ward to find coverage of the campaign in the 6th ward. In fact I was just made aware of this [VIDEO] from Progress Illinois (P.I.) Monday night. Interviewing both incumbent Ald. Freddrenna Lyle and her challenger Roderick Sawyer.
This election is important since there will be a change in regime at Chicago's city hall. We know what to expect with outgoing Mayor Daley, but who knows what the future will hold with a Mayor Emanuel. He talks a good game but I want to see what he will implement going forward. So in the 14 run offs to be decided this morning and into the evening, voters will determine who will represent their communities during the term of the Emanuel administration.
Let's hope that we will have made the correct choices going forward.
