One year after taking office, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel will host his third #AskChicago Facebook Town Hall meeting to solicit questions and suggestions from residents.
Chicagoans can submit questions in advance of the virtual meeting, which will be put up for public vote to determine the most pressing issues for the mayor to address.
"This first year has shown that while Chicago's challenges are great, the power of this city to tackle them is greater when we all work together," Emanuel said in a release promoting the meeting. "I look forward to hearing from the public again as we continue to shape Chicago's future."
Monday marks the last day questions and votes will be collected. The event kicks off at 6:00 p.m. on Tuesday, May 1, and will be streamed live on the Mayor's Facebook page. WGCI’s Tony Sculfield and Nina Chantele from “Tony Sculfield and the Morning Riot" will co-host the meeting.
Current questions leading in the polls confront the mayor's position on food trucks, education and traffic control lights.
Have a question? Chicagoans have been encouraged to submit them at AskChicago.org. The town hall will be streamed both on Facebook and via a LiveStream.com page. If you want to watch with a crowd, check out the list of remote viewing locations here.
