Spotlight: An Insider’s Perspective on Chicago’s Upcoming Elections

Register Today

Pension crisis. Schools. Public safety. Downtown development. Neighborhood economic growth. These are just some of the critical issues that are front-and-center in our city’s hotly-contested mayoral race and municipal elections across Chicago. They are also the critical policy conversations that will drive the future of our city.

Join the Metropolitan Planning Council and The Daily Line for a conversation about the February 26th elections that goes beyond the “horse race” and instead discusses the issues impacting our city and region. City Hall and political reporters Heather Cherone, A.D. Quig, Craig Dellimore and pollster Jason McGrath will provide an in-depth look at what the candidates are saying and the impact that will have on the race and Chicago’s future.
