Nearest rival was Yokoyama with 10%, then Bolden and Scott, then Rumsey, then Miguest, with Williams trailing at 1%.
The six candidates who attended the forum were Will Burns (A.B. '95, A.M. '98), Brian Scott, George Rumsey, Normal [sic] Bolden, Adam Miguest, and Lori Yokoyama. Bolden said reducing regulations would be a better way to attract more businesses than increasing development. "Force banks to lower their lending standards. We have to lift the restrictions government is placing on these businesses. We may need to loosen up fees for start-up businesses and pay the fees later," he said. Norman Bolden, owner of Norman's bistro and Room 43, suggested auditing housing developments and building on vacant lots. Scott, Bolden, and Rumsey advocated for youth programs and mentoring instead of gun control. "I believe we currently have an area where people are willing to go beyond 53rd Street," said 4th Ward candidate Norman Bolden, who operates two businesses on 43rd Street. Members of both neighborhoods need to find ways to solidify the links between the communities, he said. "What better way to do that than to build small businesses along all of the commercial corridors that connect the ward?" "On 43rd Street, hats off to Norman Bolden," 4th Ward aldermanic candidate and state Rep. Will Burns (D-26) said, adding the next 4th alderman should work to keep businesses lie Bolden's in the community and expand retail on 43rd Street, 47th Street and Cottage Grove Avenue. Norman Bolden boosted his campaign with $445 of his own money, and then gave his campaign another $1,500 of his own funds shortly after the beginning of the year. it si Bolden's only reported contribution thus far. Burns' efforts were matched by businessmen George Rumsey, who developed a following in Hyde Park, and Norman Bolden, whose 43rd Street businesses have drawn both Hyde Parkers and neighbors. Both Rumsey and Bolden deserve credit for their hard work and determination. we are certain that the race was more informative and that whoever is elected will have a better sense of the 4th Ward's needs because of their participation. Bolden brought tot he race an emphasis on the need to ease the way to small business development in the ward, especially north of 47th Street. Should Burns prevail, we hope to see both Rumsey and Bolden back in four years with an assessment of this work during his first term. Norman Bolden paced in front of Shoesmith an hour before the pols closed passing out cards emblazoned with "Punch 53" in large, red type. He confidently predicted he would take the election Tuesday night, but conceded Burns might be able to force a runoff. As of press time, Bolden was tied for second with Lori Yokoyama, both with 9 percent of the vote. After teh votes were counted, Bolden said at his camping party at Norman's Bistro that he was surprised there would be no run off with any of the candidates. Businessmen George Rumsey and Norman Bolden both put together serious campaigns and introduced important issues Burns should take seriously as he attempts to demonstrate that he is the alderman for the entire word and not just for the powerful interests that lined up behind him. Former alderman and now Cook County Board President toni Preckwinkle continues to cast a long shadow in the ward -- indeed, she even continues to serve as committeeman -- and Burns' brief flirtation with appointment to the interim position during the campaign made her preference Clear. His astute political move in declining that position shows some promise in Burns' independence. We need to see more of the same in the future to assure residents the ward is not being run from the county president's office. Two smart campaign positions -- on by Bolden, the other by Rumsey -- can send a clear signal in that direction. Norman Bolden, who owns two businesses in the immediate area, was able to peel off votes from Burns and capture 42 percent in the neighborhood.

Norman Bolden, Former WGCI Radio Exec and Owner of Room 43 Planning Another Run For 4th Ward Alderman
Norman Bolden is a former award winning radio executive at radio station WGCI and currently a local proprty owner which includes ownership if the new popular banquet facility called Room 43, and again it appears that Norman Bolden is planning another run for Alderman of the 4th Ward. Friends of Bolden began to call around and let his poosible plans be known to run again, after a headline story appeared on the front page of a major Hyde Park newspaper which featured what many viewed as a sure thing, the announcement that if current 4th Ward Alderman Toni Preckwinkle is elected in November as new President of The Cook County Board that current 26th District Representative William Burns would be the choice to replace her as 4th Ward Alderman. As a long time community activist, Norman is concerned that elections have become more and more about the core groups that elected officals court to while the masses of local residents remain disconnected and apathetic, but now a silent majority that if lifted up and engaged can truly elect new leadership that looks out to empower the least of the 4th Ward residents. Friends of Norman Bolden who contacted me indicate that they would like to see Bolden run again as a candidate who seeks the votes of the majority of the residents whose silent majority is capable of electing new leadership and a new vehicle for lifting up the issues that they think have been ignored for years and not represented by the core group of voters that have continually supported Preckwinkle, and would certainly continue to be the base of support for Will Burns if he is appointed and then elected as new 4th Ward Alderman. In examining the background of Norman Bolden, his life and current business career seem to sure reflect the type of elected official he would like to see in a new 4th Ward Alderman, for Bolden appears to be one of the least of those who worked hard and since 1999 Norman has been working to create jobs and small business opportunities for local Ward residents by transforming former vanact storefronts into viable businesses and now attractive real estate. Bolden has risen from working from a mailroom to the executive suites, but kept his commitment to local empowerment by providing affordable housing and employment for individuals who are often considered unemployable and who would otherwise be homeless. Norman views his poltical work as a natural extension of the work he has been doing for years as a private citizen and as a community activist. Norman feels that his election as a real"people's candidate" to the Chicago City Council brings a real grassroots economic empowerment agenda that he and his work have already proven can provide jobs and housing, which has helped to make the 4tth Ward more vibrant, without large scale displacing of Ward residents and without restricting economic opportunity to only those who are politcally well connected. Would we be in for another shock in the 4th Ward if Norman Bolden was selected or elected Alderman over the perceived shoe-in of Will Burns? Norman Bolden and friends just asked me to help spread the word that Bolden is planning to be a candidate too.
