Hey Mayor: Students talk mayoral priorities

You may be noticing more political ads for Mayor Rahm Emanuel as the February municipal elections inch closer. Obviously, the election will decide if Emanuel gets a second term or not, but what exactly do Chicagoans want the next mayor to do? This year’s annual Mikva Challenge Soapbox contest asked young Chicagoans just that: "If you were the next Mayor of Chicago, what is the first community issue you would tackle, and why?" WBEZ’s education reporter Becky Vevea joins us with some answers to what students are saying, and King College Prep student Brenda French joins us. (Flickr/LWP Kommunikacio)
