Allegations flew during the Chicago Sun-Times editorial board’s meeting with candidates running for alderman in the 36th Ward.
There were allegations from candidates that opponents were related to the Berrios family or put in the ward by Mayor Rahm Emanuel. There were allegations the ward has been neglected since the incumbent alderman, Nicholas Sposato, is running for reelection in the 38th Ward.
And the Chicago municipal elections still are a month away.
The 36th Ward includes Galewood, Montclare, Schorsch Village, Belmont Heights, Belmont Terrace and Schorsch Forest View.
You also can hear from those candidates who filled out our questionnaire in their own words and read highlights of the discussion, below.
