With a new Mayor taking office , the Mayoral Tutorial website is being retooled. The site aims to educate the public on good public policy, critique the performance and policies of our Mayor and the City Council, maintain an investigative function on all of the Mayor’s campaign investors and their work with the city.

From guest posters like comedian Will Durst,  to some of the best investigative reporters and activists in Chicago, you can be part of ” the battle that never ends” that is our quest for democracy.
Don Washington, the site’s founder, says “You’re either fighting for something or losing everything…Get off the bench. Show up. Play games. Learn things. Have fun.” Here is a video of the initial Mayoral Tutorial.
