How the candidates stack up on urban issues

With the big primary right around the corner, I thought it might be a good time to break down the major candidates’ perspectives on cities. Why not? It’s the major focus of this blog, and if you’re reading here, you’re probably interested in how the next president might help improve (or erode) our urban centers.
To avoid controversy, I’m going to rely heavily on quotes pulled directly from the candidates websites. I’m purposefully ignoring issues like education, immigration, and crime, because everybody’s got a plan, but I’m a lousy judge of which one will help cities more. That’s not saying those issues don’t have serious impacts on urban areas, it’s just saying that I’m not a teacher or police officer.
