Ward
 
Great
 
Debate
 
Questions
 
not
 
included
 
in
 
the
 
January
 
29,
 
2011
 
Debate
 
The
 
first
 
sets
 
of 
 
questions
 
are
 
from
 
students
 
from
 
Uplift
 
Community
 
High
 
School
 
in
 
Uptown
 
(Located
 
at
 
900
 
W.
 
Wilson
 
Ave,
 
Chicago,
 
IL).

What
 
would
 
you
 
do
 
to
 
improve
 
schools
 
and
 
education
 
in
 
the
 
46th
 
ward?
 
James Cappleman:
I
 
will
 
focus
 
on
 
3
 
levels:
 
 
Statewide:
 
I
 
will
 
work
 
with
 
State
 
Senator
 
Steans
 
to
 
push
 
for
 
reform
 
at
 
the
 
state
 
level,
 
for
 
more
 
equitable
 
distribution
 
of 
 
state
 
funding
 
for
 
education.
 
 
Citywide:
 
As
 
a
 
former
 
public
 
school
 
teacher,
 
I
 
know
 
that
 
a
 
good
 
principal,
 
good
 
teachers
 
and
 
involved
 
parents
 
working
 
together
 
is
 
the
 
recipe
 
for
 
a
 
successful
 
school.
 
We
 
benefit
 
when
 
children
 
attend
 
schools
 
closer
 
to
 
their
 
homes
 
because
 
parents
 
are
 
more
 
likely
 
to
 
get
 
involved.
 
To
 
facilitate
 
this,
 
I
 
will
 
help
 
our
 
neighborhood
 
schools
 
expand
 
to
 
become
 
community
 
centers.
 
Schools
 
could
 
be
 
places
 
for
 
public
 
meetings,
 
CAPS
 
meetings
 
and
 
other
 
events.
 
Art,
 
music,
 
and
 
physical
 
education
 
programs
 
need
 
to
 
be
 
restored,
 
not
 
only
 
to
 
give
 
more
 
balance
 
to
 
a
 
child’s
 
education,
 
but
 
also
 
to
 
lengthen
 
the
 
school
 
day.
 
46
th
 
Ward:
 
I
 
will
 
assist
 
schools
 
with
 
improvements
 
using
 
menu
 
funds
 
and
 
grants.
 
I
 
will
 
work
 
with
 
each
 
school
 
to
 
develop
 
and
 
implement
 
needed
 
programs
 
to
 
help
 
students
 
become
 
more
 
prepared
 
as
 
adults.
 
As
 
a
 
member
 
of 
 
the
 
Youth
 
Committee
 
established
 
by
 
State
 
Sen.
 
Steans
 
and
 
State
 
Rep.
 
Harris,
 
I
 
found
 
that
 
many
 
students
 
and
 
parents
 
were
 
not
 
aware
 
of 
 
afterschool
 
programs
 
that
 
already
 
exist.
 
I
 
will
 
publicize
 
this
 
information,
 
and
 
use
 
some
 
of 
 
the
 
ward’s
 
discretionary
 
funds
 
to
 
help
 
fund
 
scholarships
 
to
 
students
 
who
 
can
 
most
 
benefit
 
from
 
these
 
programs.
 
I
 
will
 
also
 
help
 
to
 
expand
 
these
 
programs
 
so
 
that
 
more
 
students
 
are
 
able
 
to
 
participate.
 Molly Phelan:
I
 
strongly
 
believe
 
in
 
the
 
power
 
of 
 
education
 
to
 
open
 
the
 
doors
 
to
 
opportunity
 
for
 
individuals,
 
families
 
and
 
communities.
 
I
 
also
 
believe
 
that
 
every
 
child
 
has
 
a
 
fundamental
 
right
 
to
 
a
 
world
 
class
 
education,
 
and
 
that
 
the
 
quality
 
of 
 
a
 
student’s
 
school
 
shouldn’t
 
depend
 
on
 
the
 
color
 
of 
 
their
 
skin,
 
their
 
zip
 
code,
 
their
 
parent’s
 
wealth
 
or
 
political
 
connections,
 
or
 
the
 
luck
 
of 
 
the
 
draw
 
in
 
an
 
admissions
 
lottery.
 
I
 
agree
 
with
 
President
 
Obama
 
that
 
our
 
public
 
schools
 
need
 
fundamental
 
reform,
 
and
 
I
 
agree
 
with
 
all
 
the
 
experts
 
that
 
we
 
must
 
lengthen
 
the
 
school
 
day
 
and
 
school
 
year
 
here
 
in
 
Chicago.
 
As
 
the
 
daughter
 
of 
 
a
 
former
 
Uptown
 
social
 
worker,
 
I
 
am
 
committed
 
to
 
working
 
with
 
our
 
neighborhood’s
 
schools,
 
community
 
groups
 
and
 
churches
 
to
 
expand
 
after
 
school
 
programs
 
that
 
keep
 
kids
 
off 
 
the
 
streets,
 
away
 
from
 
gangs,
 
and
 
engaged
 
in
 
learning.
 
We
 
must
 
set
 
high
 
standards
 
for
 
students,
 
parents,
 
administrators
 
and
 
teachers,
 
and
 
ensure
 
they
 
have
 
the
 
resources
 
and
 
support
 
they
 
need
 
to
 
achieve
 
them.
 
I
 
support
 
programs
 
that
 
set
 
goals
 
for
 
teacher
 
achievement
 
and
 
reward
 
or
 
remove
 
them
 
based
 
on
 
scientifically
based
 
measurable
 
 
2
 
|
 
P a g e
 
results.
 
But
 
we
 
also
 
have
 
to
 
recognize
 
that
 
when
 
an
 
entire
 
school
 
or
 
school
 
system
 
is
 
failing,
 
its
 
administrators
 
and
 
policymakers
 
that
 
are
 
failing,
 
not
 
the
 
teachers
 
on
 
the
 
front
 
line.
 
Finally,
 
I’ll
 
work
 
to
 
keep
 
class
 
sizes
 
low
 
and
 
direct
 
more
 
tax
 
dollars
 
to
 
our
 
classrooms.
 
A
 
recent
 
audit
 
of 
 
the
 
Chicago
 
Public
 
Schools
 
spending
 
found
 
that
 
leaders
 
spent
 
$800,000
 
on
 
questionable
 
expenses
 
like
 
alcohol
 
and
 
limousines.
 
That
 
money
 
should
 
have
 
funded
 
more
 
teachers,
 
not
 
perks
 
for
 
administrators.
 
That
 
is
 
why
 
I
 
will
 
work
 
to
 
cut
 
the
 
CPS
 
Central
 
Office
 
budget
 
by
 
15
 
percent,
 
freeing
 
up
 
$25
 
million
 
to
 
go
 
to
 
our
 
classrooms
 
where
 
it
 
belongs.

What
 
would
 
you
 
do
 
to
 
address
 
root
 
causes
 
of 
 
gang
 
violence,
 
such
 
as
 
poverty,
 
unemployment,
 
and
 
lack
 
of 
 
opportunities,
 
particularly
 
for
 
youth,
 
in
 
the
 
46th
 
ward?
 
James Cappleman:
Much
 
of 
 
my
 
work
 
over
 
the
 
last
 
decade
 
in
 
the
 
46
th
 
Ward
 
has
 
focused
 
on
 
the
 
quality
 
of 
 
life
 
for
 
families.
 
Much
 
of 
 
the
 
root
 
cause
 
for
 
youth
 
getting
 
involved
 
in
 
gangs
 
comes
 
from
 
a
 
sense
 
of 
 
hopelessness
 
and
 
not
 
being
 
able
 
to
 
clearly
 
see
 
an
 
alternative
 
path.
 
What
 
I
 
will
 
do
 
as
 
alderman:
 
 
More
 
school
 
participation
 
in
 
the
 
Cease
 
Fire
 
program
 
and
 
the
 
Explorer’s
 
Program,
 
which
 
is
 
a
 
program
 
to
 
enhance
 
the
 
relationship
 
of 
 
the
 
police
 
with
 
youth.
 
By
 
bringing
 
police
 
and
 
youth
 
together,
 
the
 
walls
 
of 
 
hostility
 
can
 
start
 
to
 
break
 
down.
 
 
I
 
will
 
also
 
work
 
strongly
 
with
 
the
 
schools
 
to
 
encourage
 
the
 
implementation
 
of 
 
anger
 
management
 
programs
 
and
 
assistance
 
that
 
can
 
help
 
youth
 
cope
 
with
 
stress
 
and
 
conflict
 
in
 
a
 
non
violent
 
way.
 
 
Each
 
high
 
school
 
student
 
is
 
required
 
to
 
complete
 
a
 
community
 
service
 
project.
 
I
 
would
 
like
 
them
 
to
 
include
 
the
 
opportunity
 
for
 
youth
 
to
 
work
 
with
 
businesses
 
in
 
the
 
ward.
 
This
 
would
 
be
 
an
 
opportunity
 
for
 
students
 
to
 
learn
 
job
 
skills
 
and
 
establish
 
a
 
relationship
 
with
 
a
 
mentor
 
in
 
the
 
community.
 
 
I
 
want
 
to
 
provide
 
tax
 
incentives
 
to
 
businesses
 
that
 
show
 
success
 
with
 
getting
 
their
 
employees
 
without
 
a
 
high
 
school
 
education
 
to
 
become
 
successful
 
graduates
 
of 
 
a
 
GED
 
and
 
an
 
AA
 
degree.
 
We
 
all
 
benefit
 
in
 
the
 
process
 
when
 
everyone
 
has
 
an
 
adequate
 
education.
 
Work
 
with
 
the
 
community
 
colleges
 
to
 
help
 
students
 
get
 
through
 
the
 
student
 
loan
 
process
 
in
 
a
 
more
 
coordinated
 
fashion
 
and
 
have
 
them
 
focus
 
on
 
reducing
 
the
 
cost
 
of 
 
student
 
books.
 
Many
 
schools
 
are
 
already
 
considering
 
making
 
reading
 
material
 
more
 
readily
 
available
 
through
 
book
 
rental
 
programs,
 
iBooks
 
or
 
its
 
equivalent
 
via
 
the
 
Internet.
 Molly Phelan:
As
 
the
 
daughter
 
of 
 
a
 
former
 
Uptown
 
social
 
worker,
 
I
 
am
 
committed
 
to
 
working
 
with
 
our
 
neighborhood’s
 
schools,
 
community
 
groups
 
and
 
churches
 
to
 
expand
 
after
 
school
 
programs
 
that
 
keep
 
kids
 
off 
 
the
 
streets,
 
away
 
from
 
gangs,
 
and
 
engaged
 
in
 
learning.
 
I
 
also
 
support
 
a
 
longer
 
school
 
day
 
and
 
school
 
year.
 
Poverty
 
and
 
unemployment
 
are
 
also
 
rooted
 
in
 
poor
 
performing
 
schools;
 
please
 
see
 
my
 
answers
 
above.
 
Additional
 
major
 
causes
 
of 
 
poverty,
 
homelessness
 
and
 
unemployment
 
include
 
substance
 
abuse,
 
mental
 
illness
 
and
 
domestic
 
violence,
 
which
 
often
 
overlap.
 
I
 
am
 
particularly
 
alarmed
 
that
 
the
 
streets
 
of 
 
our
 
neighborhood
 
have
 
become
 
a
 
dumping
 
ground
 
for
 
people
 
with
 
severe
 
social
 
 
3
 
|
 
P a g e
 
problems,
 
and
 
that
 
the
 
state
 
is
 
cutting
 
funding
 
for
 
substance
 
abuse
 
treatment
 
and
 
a
 
host
 
of 
 
other
 
vital
 
social
 
service
 
programs
 
at
 
a
 
time
 
when
 
they
 
are
 
most
 
needed.
 
Fortunately,
 
the
 
46th
 
Ward
 
is
 
represented
 
by
 
strong
 
advocates
 
for
 
these
 
vital
 
programs:
 
Senate
 
President
 
John
 
Cullerton,
 
State
 
Senator
 
Heather
 
Steans,
 
State
 
Rep.
 
Sara
 
Feigenholtz,
 
and
 
State
 
Rep.
 
Greg
 
Harris.
 
As
 
Alderman,
 
I’ll
 
work
 
with
 
our
 
state
 
lawmakers
 
and
 
Governor
 
Quinn
 
to
 
protect
 
vital
 
programs
 
that
 
our
 
ward
 
desperately
 
needs
 
to
 
help
 
get
 
people
 
of 
 
the
 
streets
 
and
 
back
 
to
 
work.
 
Finally,
 
we
 
need
 
to
 
create
 
more
 
jobs
 
in
 
our
 
community,
 
and
 
I’m
 
proud
 
to
 
have
 
been
 
endorsed
 
by
 
the
 
Chicagoland
 
Chamber
 
of 
 
Commerce
 
and
 
local
 
business
 
leaders
 
because
 
I
 
have
 
a
 
detailed
 
plan
 
to
 
bring
 
business
 
to
 
our
 
community.
 
(By
 
Anonymous)
 
3.
 
Candidates,
 
as
 
you
 
are
 
all
 
aware,
 
the
 
aldermanic
 
staff,
 
particularly
 
in
 
the
 
Broadway
 
office,
 
has
 
been
 
a
 
lightning
 
rod
 
for
 
what
 
many
 
perceive
 
as
 
poor
 
and/or
 
arrogant
 
service
 
to
 
the
 
ward
 
residents.
 
Do
 
you
 
plan
 
to
 
make
 
wholesale
 
changes
 
to
 
the
 
aldermanic
 
staff..
 
if 
 
yes,
 
what
 
specific
 
changes...
 
if 
 
not,
 
please
 
give
 
us
 
specific
 
reasons
 
why
 
not.
 
James Cappleman:
When
 
a
 
number
 
of 
 
residents
 
in
 
Sheridan
 
Park
 
were
 
upset
 
with
 
public
 
safety
 
issues
 
related
 
to
 
the
 
Miriam,
 
a
 
Mercy
 
Housing
 
Lakefront
 
residential
 
building,
 
State
 
Rep.
 
Greg
 
Harris
 
and
 
Cindy
 
Holler,
 
the
 
president
 
of 
 
Mercy
 
Housing,
 
asked
 
me
 
to
 
serve
 
as
 
the
 
mediator
 
between
 
the
 
community
 
and
 
Mercy
 
Housing
 
staff.
 
The
 
problem
 
was
 
resolved
 
in
 
such
 
a
 
way
 
that
 
allowed
 
all
 
parties
 
to
 
leave
 
feeling
 
that
 
they
 
were
 
respected
 
and
 
their
 
voices
 
were
 
heard.
 
Best
 
of 
 
all,
 
the
 
issue
 
was
 
resolved
 
to
 
everyone’s
 
satisfaction.
 
I
 
will
 
require
 
all
 
staff 
 
working
 
in
 
my
 
office
 
to
 
abide
 
by
 
principals
 
that
 
assures
 
everyone
 
is
 
treated
 
with
 
dignity
 
and
 
respect;
 
no
 
excuses.
 
At
 
this
 
point
 
in
 
time,
 
I’ve
 
made
 
no
 
decision
 
on
 
aldermanic
 
staff,
 
but
 
I
 
can
 
assure
 
you
 
I
 
will
 
not
 
tolerate
 
rude
 
behavior
 
from
 
anyone
 
in
 
my
 
office.
 Molly Phelan:
I
 
believe
 
that
 
good
 
government
 
begins
 
with
 
listening.
 
While
 
other
 
candidates
 
want
 
to
 
create
 
a
 
complicated
 
bureaucratic
 
web
 
of 
 
committees,
 
sub
 
committees,
 
advisory
 
committees
 
and
 
neighborhood
 
committees,
 
I
 
believe
 
that
 
if 
 
you
 
pick
 
up
 
the
 
phone
 
and
 
want
 
to
 
talk
 
to
 
your
 
alderman
 
about
 
a
 
question
 
or
 
a
 
problem,
 
your
 
alderman
 
should
 
take
 
your
 
call
 
or
 
call
 
you
 
back
 
as
 
soon
 
as
 
possible
 
if 
 
they
 
are
 
not
 
available.
 
That
 
will
 
be
 
my
 
policy
 
as
 
alderman.
 
As
 
for
 
staff,
 
I’ll
 
hire
 
the
 
best
 
new
 
staff 
 
that
 
my
 
aldermanic
 
budget
 
allows,
 
and
 
expand
 
it
 
by
 
working
 
with
 
Truman
 
College
 
and
 
other
 
schools
 
in
 
the
 
area
 
to
 
create
 
an
 
internship
 
program.
 
I
 
am
 
committed
 
to
 
dedicating
 
one
 
staff 
 
person
 
to
 
working
 
on
 
economic
 
development
 
and
 
job
 
creation,
 
and
 
I’d
 
like
 
to
 
have
 
additional
 
staff 
 
focused
 
on
 
public
 
safety
 
and
 
education.
