"Because you believe in Chicago that no matter the black you live in the neighborhood that you call home who love who prey to whether you were born here, or you came here that this city wants you the city needs you, and you are a part of its future. To everyone who voted for me. And even those who didn't know that. I see you. I hear you and I'll never ever stop fighting for you. Susanna Mendoza coming out and saying she's conceding started out by saying, Justin. Yeah. She's disappointed. She's not giving up yet. It sounds to me. Like, she's she's there's a point right now. She's about nine percent with about seventy six percent of the vote. A very distant fifth-place make up what she'd have to make up to get even close even closer talking about thirty thousand votes with only twenty three problem from the beginning when it was clear that she was giving up a job that she should have followed through on. Because it seemed that she was a touch greedy to get into another one before there was a lot of questions about, you know, did you you knew you're going to run for mayor and they'd leak that right before her election for comptroller, where here she had already leaked the commercial that she was going to run that was it was a very bad sort of roll out of that. And it made voters question her Cam, we have not heard the last one system, and does she she is, of course, still stay controller. And I imagine that we will see her running for secretary of state down the line or something on congress. She she is a young. She's a she's a better campaigner than I think that we saw in this entire campaign. She came on pretty strong at the end. I thought she was doing pretty well. I thought you did really well. TD forum debate last week. I think this is a setback for knows. I think we have probably seen who asked like Bob fioretti, we've seen the last of Gary, Chico. Probably as a Bob fioretti. Yeah. Mccarthy is less than one percent. And. Yeah, and Gary McCarthy are for as long as he has been in the race to pull less than three percent. There's really not Willie Wilson still has any kind of impact and local politics or is he done running for office. Let's see have left to pass out. Probably a lot of forty four thousand votes, right? Place. And I'm just I wanna put it out there. The seventy eight percent of the precincts reporting after I mean, you have to continue to think Willie Wilson has a shot. Even though it is a long shot to be only four percent down in the actual place. I know you don't just long math. But I'm just saying he for forty four thousand votes to be on know twenty three thousand votes behind the third place person. It's it's it's a stress. It's possible. But it's, but it is an impressive showing him. I'll I'll say that. I think that he Susanna Mendoza and Anamar as well. Who is right now in about six plays renting is Ron last time. Yeah, I'm looking forward to the dollar per vote tally that comes in at the end. Actually, just does he run for congress? Does he run for office or some? I mean, I I don't know. I I don't he has certainly has some supporters. I want to get into the I think the story lines here. Obviously we're talking about the mayor's race. And that's important. You know, you look at the treasurer's race. And it looks like it's going to run off. There are incumbent alderman and not machine alderman that are going down tonight alderman. Joe Moore in the forty ninth war and got his bucket by Maria hadn't who was the progressive candidate young African American woman who Rogers park embraced. And it's it's interesting to say that because you would never think that they would not embrace alderman. Joe Moore who has been there alderman for decades. He was he was the thorn in mayor Daley side, it was him and Helen chiller that would always be the forty eight to two over and over and over and during the Emmanuel administration more changed his tune and said, you know, I'm going to get more done by working with the mayor than being against him. Rogers park said no, we don't want. None of that. Well, you know, there's this moment in time nationally as well as locally where the political mood is shifting the standards are shifting you talk about Mendosa running for one office, and then running for another that is historically commonplace. But it's not gonna fly right now. And there's a lot of things these alderman who may not be machine by an old standard. There's no machine gotta bring up another alderman who looks like he's going down. And this is not a Chicago machine alderman by any stretch, forty fifth ward alderman John arena who had who had one and very close elections on the last two go rounds. I think there was a runoff, and they were talking like three hundred votes. It's getting trounced by his opponent Jim Gardner who really is representing the non progressive factions in Jefferson park and Porsche park in the northwest side. But John arena who was a popular member of the progressive caucus. Does not look like he's going to be reelected in the fall. Forty fifth looking down the line. You see a lot of other big aldermen who may be forced to run off. I think of alderman in the thirtieth. Ward alderman O'Connor in the fortieth word another alderman that is getting beat or and looks like he's not coming back. As pro Joe Moreno, he alderman the first ward who has been in that that seat for at least two terms that he was on the bubble. And he was he was, but but he's getting his is he's losing an election to an to an unseasoned opponent who had a scandal of his own. I think the sometimes put his challengers scandal on the front page of the paper. So just interesting to see some of these household names and city council that will not be returning and twenty look at the ones who are what are they doing? Right. There's straddling as I was starting to say earlier, Pat Dowell old school and she'd been around for ten years. She had a progressive challenger who is a week challenger perhaps. But. Mixed reviews in the neighborhood the business with closing in. She had to backtrack, but she stood up on the seventy eight and people applauded her and thanked her. She's come across as thoughtful and responsive to the community despite support for the seated mayor Sophia king's king know, they're solid. They're done. A lot of the southside Ward's I want to go out west northwest side. Deb mell, the Mel dynasty devil is as winning by by ten votes. There's definitely going to be run. She's going to have a really interesting run off with with Rosana Rodriguez. Sanchez who is the Alexandria Cossio Cortez of this of this election in Congo. She's a young very passionate Hispanic woman and moderated the thirties reward automatic forum, and she has some very theatrics supporters. That's going to be a real knock down drag out battle. And here's a good ones as well in the fifteenth ward. And there's alderman Lopez who had a number. Challenges forty eight point five percent of the vote trouncing his his opponents in the fifteenth ward. But not enough to get a run off at this point. Avoid a runoff. Yeah. So very interesting there with all the other way to look at all this is that the reason the ones who are staying could be that the turnout was low. They were estimated elections was history. Maybe thirty percent be the lowest turnout probably maybe in history. If it hits thirty percent. It's gonna go. L go a little higher. But people who were not voting are are telling us that they aren't very interested in the in the office holders of long tenure either. And when they don't vote that throws the field open to all these young progressives. Walter Jacobson, March Halpern, Eric Zoran. Let's do this. Let's get an update on the results with Andrea. And then we'll come back, and we'll continue the conversation. Andrea. What are we got their results? We do we've been talking too much about mayor. Let's have some of these automatic race is the projected winners now are coming in. Because the votes are just overwhelming in the third ward. Pat Dowell being declared the winner with sixty eight percent of the vote the fourth word Sophia king moving to the seventh ward Greg Mitchell there the eighth ward Michelle Harris nine four Anthony Bill hangs on to that seat in the tenth ward Susan Garza holding on there as well. The eleventh ward Patrick Daley Thompson with seventy five percent of the vote to just with seventy five percent of the vote. They're being declared the winner in the thirteenth ward. Martin. Quin moving up to the eighteenth ward, Derek Curtis. These are all these are all the projected winners now because they're just running away with the vote in the nineteenth. Ward is an interesting eighty five percent of the vote today. Doers. Fifteen percents of Matt OJ hanging on in the nineteenth. Ward there on the south side twenty-second ward, Michael Rodriguez being declared the projected winner in Twenty-three Silvana to barris being declared the winner in that ward and twenty-seven. Walter Burnett hangs on Twenty-eight Jason Irvine at twenty nine Chris Farrell. Telly pharaoh rather and moving up to the thirty fourth war, thirty fifth ward, rather Carlos Ramirez. Rosa with sixty percent of the vote forty one. Anthony Napolitano winning that seventy to thirty percent over his challenger, Tim Hennigan in the far northwest side, forty word Harry, Ostermann forty nine Maria hadn't fifty Deb Silverstein. They're the winner. So there's some of the projected winners now on the automatic races. We'll have much more on your election coverage here, it's election night on seven twenty WGN..

"I thought his Kaga police department didn't extraordinarily good job. All the way through this whole Jesse small length deal. Our superintendent Eddie Johnson went out of his way to say even in light of this hopes the next time this sort of instant is reported now, of course, the Chicago police department will continue to investigate all reports of these types of incidents with the same amount of vigor that we did with this one. My concern is that hate crimes were now publicly he met with a level of skepticism that previously. Didn't it didn't happen. No, I'm not I'm not a believer in hate crime legislation in general, but I get what he's saying. And he was deeply offended, and he was insulted that the city was dragged through the mud. I'm left hanging. My head and asking why? Why would anyone especially an African American man? Use the symbolism of a noose to make false accusations. I believe in supporting the police, and I'll tell you more on how you can do. So this coming weekend as we welcome Haldeman Mantos shea back to double the us before we talk about the fundraiser forgive behind the vast alderman. I wanted to get your take on your thoughts regarding the Chicago police department. I thought they did a pretty good job very measured reasonable response to these allegations from this actor, and I thought they played it almost perfectly your thoughts. I agree with you on a percent shot. You know, this is just another example of the strong leadership. We have and superintendent Johnson through to spend obviously, a difficult trying a couple of weeks, and you know, once again. Men and women the Chicago police department. Rose above and they've done a terrific job. Both on this issue painstakingly working through the evidence and taking their time and um. I'm I'm very proud to say that I'm strong support of the Chicago. Police department alderman O'Shea, I think Eddie Johnson has tipped his hand and said I'm done, and you know, this is going to be my last hurrah kind of you know, in right off into the twilight here relatively soon. But would you urge whoever the next mayor is to maybe keep Eddie Johnson on for a while? I think if we were able to keep Eddie Jobson's police superintendent with whoever the next mayor's that would be good for the city is well respected the women and women on the job. He's he's a strong leader is quiet leader. And if and if he decides on his terms that he's had enough a long story career, that's one thing. But I would hope that he would be there certainly through a transition. Just to keep things steady within the department nineteenth.

"I'm Don clapping in the WGN newsroom. Ready to join the conversation live whenever a story changes on Chicago's very own seven twenty WGN. thanks for being with us. We're going to talk a little bit about tits and why we should care and what a tiff is. And what a back to the basics ordinances all going on in your city, and you need to know what is going on forty fifth. Ward alderman, John arena joins us. How you doing alderman? Oh, I'm so sorry. How are you? Issues this time of night. No problem. I'm doing very well. Thanks for having me on. Hey, first of all I hear at a not so secret a secret that's not so secret anymore. I know you were huge bears fan. Yes. And you were at the game yesterday. Yeah. Me and my brothers have season tickets, and we got a chance to go down tailgate for a little bit. Enjoy the wonderful sky. Go weather and and then enjoy a great game. I hear you guys have always do a nice tailgate. Yeah. We we've been practicing at this number of years now. Now is this one of those steak and lobster tailgates or is this Bradshaw. Burgers. And I make a mean Popper we call them mud jalapenos stuff with the good things and wrapped in bacon. Oh that sounds really good. I have a friend who has made a tailgate maybe like a year or so ago. I thought I was going to go for hamburgers and hot dogs. I'm not kidding, you trim cocktail, and they did like a surf and turf they were grilling steaks out there. I think tailgating is getting a little more. Hi, Ed Soldier Field. Well, we're the self-services lot. So it's a little it's still still pretty Rupe? Rough out there. But it says a lot of fun. It is boy. And you know, what what a game you saw. Holy cow. Yeah. It was. Yeah. It was definitely was a great defensive effort. You know, we we know the offense is struggling with a couple of things. But a lot of the pieces are there now as we've seen over the last couple of years, we're in a place now where we're nine and four were, you know, looking at a playoff berth. And and who knows after that, I think they're gonna take the Packers this time. I really do. I think we're in position to do it this year, and that's really exciting. So that's the next game. We're gearing up for I hope so anything special at the pair at the Packers tailgate this weekend. Trash talking. I'm sure. In terms of the the menu. We haven't figured that out yet. That'll be Friday, right. Friday saturday. Yeah. Figured it out over the weekend. And then get ready for Sunday. Well, the reason we wanted to have yet. First of all we have to talk a little bit about tiffs and people are gonna go. Oh my God. What's a tip? First of all explain what it is. And why we have to care why we should care so to do with our property taxes are controlled so we pay our property taxes. Generally, if you look at your property tax Bill, it divides it up, you know, what percentage goes to schools and parks to the general corporate fund for you know, the funds the operations of the city our libraries things like that. And what changes when you're geographically and a chest. A tip is started in the first year of its creation. It's kind of a bar where the the the amount of money that's coming in in that particular year. And then over the course of twenty three years, it's assumed that property values will go up and income from your from your. Property taxes will steadily increase, and that's the increment. So from where you were in your one to where you are, you know, later in the life of the tiff there's an amount of money that's taken and set aside into a special fund, and that money can only be used for infrastructure projects physical projects within the boundaries of tiff that's defined at the beginning of the test. So if there's a school in your tests like in my case, we have sure is high school is in the Portage park. So we're currently building a putting three million dollars into a new sports fields for that school. That's a real tangible improvement. We can use that money for the other thing that chips can be used for is to incentivize development projects with the private sector in places where we wouldn't normally see that development happened in this moment in time. And this is where we can we can use these things. Well, and sometimes there's been examples where we haven't used them. So well, and what what we're doing. We recently we we were asking for some real clarification on when we use tip for private development to making sure some fundamental checks and balances are adhered to to to give Arkansas which wants more assurances that they're they're they're tax payer money. Their tax funds are being used wisely and not being used to grant privileges to developers that they really don't need to incentivize a project. Okay. So I was at the finance committee meeting today, we were all there. Basically for alderman Burke, it was his first his first public appearance since the FBI federal agents in his offices so stayed for the the meaning, of course, and you were there was an ordinance being proposed. I called the back to the basics ordinance. Explain what that is. And that you're trying to get past today. Explain first of all what that does. And what that is. So what that does is is literally get back to the basics of what tips were created to do at by the state legislator, and in this in the state law that created the ability for us as a as a municipality to make it says that we have to define and limit the creation of two that are considered bladed. Now, that's a legal definition. It's not a kind of an emotional definition of what we might one person might consider versus another legal definition in the in the originating legislation, and we are we are asking in this ordinance to make sure that we go back to that. Basic definition, the definition of blight has been kind of created a been used as a more subjective term in our opinion. And and. And so when people look at a shift being created on downtown on, you know, LaSalle street, there's many reasonable people would say that is not a blighted area that has opportunity for investment that people will come in and renovate buildings and create businesses and and locate their corporate headquarters downtown because it's downtown Chicago others might argue differently. Our position is that we wanna define what light is. We look at blade as places where there isn't the potential for investment where nobody is going and hasn't gone for many many years to invest and try to rebuild economies that have fallen flat in our in our city southside, Westside, vacant, lots old warehousing areas things that aren't getting investment or have been sitting derelict for years. Our ordinance basically such that. Standard. And then says there's a term called but four-test meeting will this project move forward. But for the city investing some of this taxpayer dollars in the project itself. So we're just trying to set and clarify what the standards are not only for taxpayers, but for the developers themselves, you know, to say, look, here's where a project would have would rise to qualifying for tiff. And here's where a place where it wouldn't. And as we go forward from here. Use those standards more transparently. Okay. I mean, it it. It sounds confusing. But if you listen, very carefully, it makes a lot of sense. So you have to prove that the site blighted as you as you mentioned meeting, vacant or absolute it has the past the but for test because right now tiff is notoriously used in financially stable or even thriving neighborhoods. And this is the big, you know, this is the wow moment, which many of us know, it is handed out to development. Companies that could adequately financed the projects in question through private funding. And I think it prevents favors to. Exactly we want. We want transparency we want a clear standard that this administration or any future administrations will all be held to. And and we think the ordinance kitschy that there's difference of opinion there from the administration. And that's why I think you saw some of the actions you saw today I want to ask you about that to you tried to call it for a vote. It was well, we'll tell you what happened. But it's something that everybody knows especially everyone should know period. But especially in Chicago now with this back to the basics ordinance that you're trying to push through. And we'll tell you what happened today in council chambers can hang on for a second alderman. Absolutely. Okay. We'll be back after this on seven twenty WGN. Check.
