    Protesters march down Stony Island Avenue in favor of a CBA ordinance to combat displacement as a result of the Obama Presidential Center in 2019 [Maxwell Evans/Block Club Chicago]

    Voters in the 5th Ward overwhelmingly support the implementation of a community benefits agreement (CBA) for parts of South Shore that will be affected by the construction of the Obama Presidential Center, but the two aldermanic candidates in the April 4 runoff to replace retiring Ald.
