    Will we go to the election stations and have the municipal elections rigged again as in 2007? I hope not. Repeating what happened in 2007 will increase anger and frustration, and leave people with a sense of worthlessness.

    Mr. Maani did a very nice job. He was a great leader. He built a very nice relationship with the city of Chicago. God bless him and his family.
