Chicago, elect this man:
39th District: Elected in 2002, Democratic Rep. Maria Antonia Berrios has had plenty of time to prove she’s the real thing and not just the daughter of Cook County Assessor Joseph Berrios. But colleagues almost invariably describe her as a go-along, get-along legislator, and her positions on the issues, per our candidate survey, are heavy on calls for further examination and light on actual solutions. Will Guzzardi, a 24-year-old comparative literature major from North Carolina who worked briefly for Huffington Post in Chicago, is working the neighborhoods hard, pitching himself as an independent candidate who’ll be accountable to voters. We disagree with him on many things but admire his direct answers. Guzzardi is endorsed.
