"Federal indictment of alderman, Edward Burke, for amongst other things allegedly extorting a campaign contribution on behalf of my opponent, Toni preckwinkle, she does the voters a full explanation not only for this contribution. But for all the contribution raised or given to her by at Berkeley, welcome to the microphone, Paul Vallas. Stopping by wwl sus afternoon. Mr vallas. Thank you, sir. Would you laborat- on your statement? Well, let me point out that I think anybody affiliated with Burke really should withdraw from the race. Who would that include Gary, Chico? There would include Mendosa definitely because you know, obviously Medusa was. A race. He hasn't been convicted of anything. Yeah. But at the end of the day, you know, I think all these individuals are tainted look, there was an article the other day that talked about I think it was my whole operas Routier Coney talked about Burke f- staining from voting on on because there were conflicts of interest were he he may have been representing those individuals who had contracts before the council like four hundred sixty three times. And that this was like this was a record. Welcome reconcilable for a powerful public official to also recommend a law firm, which you should hire to do business with the very city represent. No, it's not, you know, but let me point out. I wanted to make the point that, you know, Chico when he was at the school board Epstein over five hundred times or he recused himself over five hundred times, this is part of the pay to play culture here. It's all about, you know, you get contracts you make political contributions, you sustain the political industrial complex and and. It's always been that way. And it always will be that way. It's why the the political industrial complex kind of circles around certain candidates who who who will be who will help perpetuate the status quo. Ten years ago. Here down. You're just at Chicago state. You were down in New Orleans been in thick of this before what makes us particularly susceptible to this sort of deal. Well, you know, part of the reason is the longevity which people have served in these positions for term limits. You know, the best the quickest way to achieve campaign finance reform is to limit people's terms in office. Not only not only the mayor. But the city council at the end today. It's public service. These are you know, we should be turning individuals out. We should never have individuals serve as in critical positions chairmanship of committees for decades for that matter, you know, the mayor's terms should be limited to to to to. I think the city council. Terms should be limited. But what happens is these positions become so lucrative? Look. You know, they not only make a lot of money, and they have great pensions, and they have great healthcare, but with the automatic privilege, the aldermen are like in many respects like noble, so like the nobles in Braveheart remember fifty aldermen in. Well, look somebody wants pointed out the alderman Moore's ward alderman, more has more. Individuals in his ward in Butch includes Englewood, then then kill him at city at city has seven members of city council. I think the problem is do we need automatic privileges. I mean, do we need to provide the alderman with the type of resources, they are the most they are the strongest alderman in America easily game in comparison with the committee men in New York the assembly, Mandy. And we have these are feifdoms these are little kingdoms. You're right. So I'm not suggesting that you could get by with a smaller city council. But it's also what the alderman are have the power to do the automatic privileges. Their their ability to dictate who gets to locate their business who gets to expand their business who you know, what the zoning what the how the how zoning in the ward is going to apply to certain businesses that are looking to expand are looking to relocate. What do you think Paul Vallas Paul Vallas is here wwl's he's a declared candidate one of the declared mayoral candidates before Rahm Emanuel decided to step away from reelection. Which was crazy..
