Chicago 2nd Ward runoff election forum video
There's a runoff election April 7. If you watch TV, you've might have heard about the mayor's race. But if you live in the 2nd Ward, mail carriers bring daily reminders about the aldermanic runoff. Candidates Alex Pattison and Brian Hopkins squared off March 24 at Columbus Elementary school, in a debate moderated by the Chicago Tribune's Hal Dardick and Greg Hinz of Crain's Chicago Business. Thanks to CAN TV for video of the event, and to principal Wendy Anne Oleksy, organizer Steve Niketopolous and EVA co-sponsors the Noble Square Home Owners Association, the Ukrainian Village Neighborhood Association and the Wicker Park Committee.
