Voters in 14 Wards across the city will chose their aldermen in the April 5 runoff races. The <a href="http://www.cityofchicago.org/city/en/about/wards/25.html">25th Ward</a> is one of those 14. It's on the southwest side, and includes the Pilsen, Chinatown, University Village and Tri-Taylor neighborhoods.<br /><br />The candidates are incumbent Alderman <a target="_blank" href="http://www.dannysolis.org/">Danny Solis</a> and community activist <a target="_blank" href="http://morfinfor25thward.com/">Cuahetemoc Morfin</a>. The two have met before. Morfin almost forced Solis into a runoff in the 2007 municipal election. In November's election, Solis won 49 percent of the vote and Morfin 28 percent.</p><p>Both men spoke with host Alison Cuddy about their ideas for running the 25th Ward.</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p><em>A correction has been made to this story.<br /><br />Correction: An earlier version of this story misspelled Mr. Morfin's name. </em></p><p><em><br />Music Button: Radiokijada, &quot;Manoteo en Menor-Tremor Mix&quot;, from the CD Tremor: Para Armar, (ZZK)</em></p></p> Tue, 22 Mar 2011 12:31:00 -0500 http://www.wbez.org/episode-segments/2011-03-22/25th-ward-candidates-solis-and-morfin-debate-runoff-election-84067
