Post Questions for the 2nd District Congressional Candidates
In much the same way we executed the Minutes with the Mayor series on Chicago Heights Patch and Homewood-Flossmoor Patch, we're planning to ask the candidates questions from their potential constituents.
The race for the Illinois Second District Congressional seat is arguably one of the most important races of the year for those of us who live in the district.
With Election Day just two months away (sooner for you early voters) it's becoming increasingly important to know more about these candidates and their plans.
Incumbent Jesse Jackson Jr. has had a rough year to say the least, and his opponents, Brian Woodworth and Marcus Lewis, are looking to unseat a man who has held the same spot for nearly 18 years.
Over the past two months we've heard plenty of comments on Jackson's health, but we have not heard much about the candidates' platforms and plans. What makes these three so different from each other? Are any of them deserving of federal elected office? If so, who will do the most for the district?
In order to make your decision at the polls just a little easier, we'll be reaching out to all three candidates to have them answer your questions. So ask away!
Post questions in the comments that all three candidates can answer. After we've racked up enough questions, we will conduct a poll to determine the top questions and relay them to the candidates in an interview.
