Chicago Public Media and the University of Chicago’s Institute of Politics are hosting two forums with the city’s mayoral candidates. First up, at the University of Illinois in Chicago, we pose voter questions to five candidates: Mayor Lori Lightfoot, U.S. Rep. Jesus “Chuy” Garcia, former CPS CEO Paul Vallas, State Rep. Kam Buckner, and Ald. Sophia King.
On Thursday Feb. 9, we’ll host the second part of our forum at the University of Chicago with the remaining four candidates: Organizer Ja’Mal Green, businessman Willie Wilson, Cook County Commissioner Brandon Johnson and Ald. Roderick Sawyer.
