    The Issues

    Campaign finance questions already dog this election, even before we have "real" candidates.

    The next mayor will face a firestorm over business, wage and property taxes. Mayor Street's stumping for Safer Streets. But can a mayor make the city safe? The city needs to create more of them. And the next mayor will have to figure out how. How can the next mayor keep neighborhoods growing - without hurting city dwellers who stayed put through tough times?
