The Chicago Tribune has published its endorsements for the city elections. Regarding the 50th ward, it said:
Ald. Bernard Stone has represented this ward for 33 of his 79 years. He has had a long and rich career, and the council has often benefited from his direct, plain-spoken advice. But he seems to have lost some of the drive for the job. His opponents argue it's time for a change, and they're right. He has three challengers: architect Greg Brewer, businessman Salman Aftab and Naisy Dolar, a diversity training consultant and former director at the city's Commission on Human Relations. Dolar's years as a community leader have prepared her for this. She has a broad platform for improving her city and her community, and she's an energetic political newcomer. Dolar is endorsed.
Meanwhile, Greg Brewer has gotten the Chicago Reader's logo on his front page. Not as an endorsement, but because he accepted Stone's debate challenge published in a Reader article.
