Candidates Jonathan Nieuwsma and Diane Goldring, the top two vote-getters in the 4th Ward aldermanic primary, will face off on the April 6 general election. Both candidates are newcomers to City Council, having ousted incumbent Ald. Don Wilson (4th). In separate interviews with each candidate, The Daily Northwestern gathered their stances on key policy issues throughout the city, from affordable housing to policing. The candidates’ answers have been lightly edited for brevity and clarity.
