Race for Chicago city council. Candidate positions on key issues

I am running for low-income people and working families in the City of Chicago and in the 1st Ward who have continually been left out of the political process that affects them most vulnerably. As our current alderman has prioritized greedy developers, many of our working people in the 1st ward have struggled to afford their homes, have been displaced from their schools and disconnected from their communities. While my opponent has disregarded the needs of our community, I have been working with the Logan Square Neighborhood Association, the Jane Adams Senior Caucus and Friends of the Park to develop the the skills necessary to run a transparent and inclusive democratic government in our ward. I will bring a radical anti-displacement housing plan, advocacy for deeper CPS and community investment to our public schools, community led zoning and participatory budgeting to our ward.

Hurricane Florence could threaten US

(CNN) – Hurricane Florence is still on track to hit the East Coast of the United States this week — and two other big storms are brewing right behind it.

Florence, which was upgraded from a tropical storm to a hurricane on Sunday, was in the Atlantic Ocean, about 1,400 miles from East Coast. It was moving west close to 7 mph, about 720 miles from Bermuda, the National Hurricane Center said.

Helene was also upgraded to a hurricane on Sunday, the center said, but neither Helene nor Tropical Storm Isaac are expected to hit the mainland United States. Isaac, which was moving toward the lesser Antilles in the Caribbean Sea, could bring heavy rain and become a hurricane overnight, CNN meteorologist Tom Sater said.
