24th Ward: No incumbent had a worse showing on Feb. 22 than Ald. Sharon Denise Dixon, who got just under 20 percent of the vote. This was a huge field, and that modest showing was enough to get her into a runoff with former Ald. Michael Chandler. Voters are frustrated here. Chandler got just 13 percent. So the last two aldermen in this West Side community got just one-third of the vote combined. We like Chandler. We backed him when he lost to Dixon four years ago. Dixon had promise, but a lot of local supporters have given up on her and this ward has not progressed on her watch. Our endorsement goes to Chandler, who has had four years to reflect on why he lost voters' support. We think he has learned from the experience.
So here we have it Tribune and Suntimes are going with Chandler over the current alderman!
Just wanted to share this info...... we need people to get to the polls!!!!!!
