It’s the final countdown! Chicago’s municipal elections are next Tuesday. Voters will get to pick from 14 candidates to be the next mayor and pick someone to represent their neighborhood too. This week, WBEZ’s team of political reporters will answer your last minute questions and introduce you to a person taking his job as citizen very seriously.
Reporting by Linda Lutton, Dan Mihalopoulos, Claudia Morell, and Becky Vevea. Editing by Cate Cahan and Alex Keefe. Production by James Edwards and Becky Vevea.
Each week at On Background, WBEZ’s team of political reporters brings you the backstory on the week’s big story. Host Becky Vevea and guests take you inside the back rooms of Chicago and Illinois government to better understand the people, places and forces shaping today’s politics.
