If you haven’t heard del Valle’s name on the evening news alongside Rahm, Gery and Carol’s, that’s because he’s been labeled a “second-tier candidate,” by the media, according to Don Washington’s dangerously-informative Mayoral Tutorial. Because del Valle doesn’t have much money, the mainstream media has determined he’s not worth covering.
Why are we having him on the show? Well, he’s also the candidate with some pretty substantial ideas on issues like TIF reform, education, jobs and public housing. In short, as mayor, he says he’d continue doing what he’s done his whole career: help the little guy.
