So the results are in, and the runoff is scheduled:
Chicago Teachers Union Race Moves to Runoff WBEZ: Twenty
thousand teachers across the city voted in Friday's five-way race. Just
300 votes separated Stewart and Lewis, the two top vote getters...Teachers
union race headed for runoff Sun Times: Stewart
was already campaigning on those woes -- and her six years of
experience, as president and at the negotiating table -- in asking
membership to retain her... Teachers union president, challenger in runoff
Tribune: The president of the Chicago Teachers Union will face
the head of a education organization in a runoff election after none of
the five candidates got 50 percent of the vote.
What do you make of the top two contenders, and who are you going to
(or would you) vote for and why? What specifically can one candidate do
that the other can't (or won't)? I get that the two have different histories and come from different camps but am not sure I understand how -- realistically -- one is going to change things over the other. Or maybe this is just anti-incumbency.
