Chicago is going through a rough patch at the moment – or is that an understatement? We all know that. Maybe NOW is the time for us to learn from past mistakes and begin to move forward as one community. These three Aldermen agree: James Cappleman (46th ward), Pat Dowell (3rd Ward) and Ariel Reboyras (30th Ward).

The Mayor has been talked about – over and over…but at one level it’s really the Aldermen who run the city, or at least I think so. Do they really? And what don’t they do? Are those 50 Aldermen a rubber stamp for Mayor Emanuel? All among the questions I ask.

I believe Chicagoans are sick of the divisiveness and ready to move forward. I know I am #ChicagoProud (we discuss what that hashtag means).

Every time we wake up, there’s bad news. But I suggest there’s more than twice as much good news – and I’m ready to hear about it. Are the Aldermen in agreement?

If you are cynical (and I can understand if you are) about Chicago Aldermen – this conversation may change your mind.
