Lewis University                 Cochran has been in o ce since 2007, but Smith said
                               he believes it is time for the South Side community to go
                               in a new direction.

                                  One reason Smith decided to seek o ce is so he
                               could help provide a safe environment for his children
                               growing up.

                                 “My son wants to play in the park across the street,
                               but because I can’t go out there and supervise him at the
                               moment, he has to be a prisoner in his own home,” Smith
                               said. “When we were young, we could go out and not only
                               ride our bikes through the park but the whole city. How
                               did it come to a place where my son can’t go in the park
                               to play without me having to sit there watching him?”
                                 If elected, he plans on incorporating his music career
                               into the community to help children have an outlet of
                               expression they might not have otherwise.
                                 “[I’m] going to be doing weekly youth rap sessions,”
                               Smith said. “We’re going to bring in youth from the com-

                               want to live, the kind of neighborhood they want to live
