BGA’s Watson the Watchdog took the stage at Chicago’s 1st Ward Aldermanic Debate on Jan. 29. Watson greeted all four candidates before BGA’s Senior Policy Analyst Alden Loury moderated the nearly two-hour debate at Wells High School.

Watson turned on the charm greeting 1st Ward residents, posing for selfies with members of Wells High School’s JROTC program and roaming the locker-lined hallways.

Kudos to the more than 100 engaged residents who showed up to the lively debate! Don’t forget to vote on February 24!
