At MPC’s 2010 Annual Luncheon on Monday, June 21, Illinois’ U.S. Senate candidates Alexi Giannoulias (D), Mark Kirk (R), and LeAlan Jones (Green) had the opportunity to explain their platforms for supporting the Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning's efforts in metropolitan Chicago, advancing the Livable Communities Actto create more sustainable communities nationwide, funding Illinois’ massive infrastructure needs, and keeping our water supply – the envy of the nation – safe and abundant.
Chicago Sun-Times Washington Bureau Chief Lynn Sweet kept the crowd of nearly 900 Chicago-area corporate, civic, government and community leaders entertained, as she poked and prodded each candidate to provide clear answers to the four questions MPC provided the campaigns in advance, as well as to some “bonus” questions she had up her sleeve.
