Some five months after Richard M. Daley’s announcement to step down as mayor, it is almost time for Chicago to move on. Tuesday voters will have the opportunity to cast a ballot for a new mayor and in many cases, a new alderman.
Monday, Eight Forty-Eight wanted to know what’s on voters' minds as they prepare to vote. Who's excited and who's turned off by the election? What’s got people headed out: The issues or the personalities? Who are Chicagoans voting for and why? Host Alison Cuddy was joined by an excellent group of journalists: WBEZ political reporter Sam Hudzik, Chicago Tribune political reporter Rick Pearson - and Chicago Sun-Times columnist Mary Mitchell.
