Candidates answered questions on Hahn Street, TIF, sustainability and getting along.
The three Elmhurst aldermen vying to be Elmhurst's next mayor participated in the League of Women Voters candidate forum Sunday afternoon. Questions posed to them from both the League and from audience members focused on tax increment financing, how they would work to bring the council together and development of Hahn Street, among other things. One of the first questions asked by the audience was, "Do you have aspirations for higher office?" Elmhurst's former mayor, Pete DiCianni, was elected to the DuPage County Board before finishing his term as mayor. All three candidates answered, without hesitation, that they are not seeking higher office and would serve out their full term if elected. Related: City Council Candidates Tackle Finances…

About a dozen voters braved the rain Wednesday night to learn a little more about DuPage County Board candidates in Districts 1 and 2. Candidates shared their ideas on such things as the environment, flood control, the DuPage Airport Authority and county consolidation—at least as much as their one-minute-per-question time limit would allow. The forum, sponsored by the League of Women Voters of Elmhurst, also offered an opportunity for a few subtle jabs between candidates. Only two out of the six candidates running in DuPage District 1, Republicans Paul Fichtner of Elmhurst (incumbent) and Sam Tornatore of Roselle, attended the forum at Community Bank of Elmhurst. Absent were Republican Donald Puchalski of Elmhurst (incumbent) and Democrats…
