Carol Mosely Braun wants to undo the famed Daley parking meter privatization deal. Essentially, this is her Obamacare. Maybe she should start a new political party (how about the "Meters Are Too Damn High Party?") and steal a bunch of the pay boxes and dump them in Burnham Harbor. I'd cover it.
Candidate Rahm has also talked about how he would be in favor of food trucks, which is still being discussed in the backrooms of Mayor Richard Daley's City Council.
As more and more candidates start to release their initiatives and ideas to the press, we will see more and more of Mayor Daley's accomplishments called into question. Let's face it, after the midterm election, it's become fashionable to run on the almighty "repeal" platform.
Candidates wanting to undo previous administration's policies is nothing new, but it does give us the opportunity to have fun at their expense.
So together, as a Chicago community, what should candidates be looking at to repeal?
I'll throw out some good candidate talking points, you can add.
- I would repeal Navy Pier.
