From WBEZ Chicag (you can listen to or read the story here):
Politicians around the city are making their final push for votes in Chicago’s mayoral and aldermanic races. The 26th ward on the city’s west side is home to something of a David and Goliath story with an 18-year-old going up against an experienced politician. Though this David is unlikely to beat Goliath.
It’s Saturday afternoon just a couple days before the election and 2548 W. Division is all closed up. There are rolling shutters over the windows as well as the door. This is Alderman Roberto Maldonado’s campaign office and it’s not exactly a beehive of activity right now though Maldonado doesn’t have much of a political challenge in this race.
REID: My name is Devon Reid. I’m running for alderman in the 26th ward. I’m 18, I’m at Wright College. I’m studying to be a high school history teacher.
