Gery Chico calls for 10 debates in the neighborhoods
After filing 50,254 signatures, mayoral candidate says the time to debate is now
(CHICAGO) Mayoral candidate Gery Chico called for at least 10 debates in the neighborhoods of Chicago on Monday, after filing his petition signatures at the Chicago Board of Elections. Chico filed 50,254 signatures and will unveil the first major issue proposal of the campaign this week.
"I am calling for all the candidates to commit to at least 10 debates in Chicago's neighborhoods before the election," Chico said. "The future of our city is at stake and Chicagoans deserve nothing short of a full and vigorous debate of the issues. Let's debate ways to create more jobs, make our streets safer and fix education and let's debate them now because Chicago needs a mayor who is ready on Day One."
