Four candidates (Chico, Cooper, Del Valle and Emanuel) expressed concern that changing Soldier Field’s name could dishonor veterans. “I am a proud United States Marine veteran,” Cooper says. “I would not trust private industry to show respect to military veterans.”

* That’s between the owners and the community.
** That’s between the aldermen and the community.
*** “Any proposal on these issues must be evaluated objectively to determine whether and how they would benefit taxpayers and they must include community input.”

Meeks declined to respond.
