Aldermanic candidates

Did anyone get a call or visit from someone saying they were running for alderman?

I got a call on my cell phone (our buzzer and phones are linked) from someone claiming they were, but I cannot find any information about anyone running in the 25th ward and am now suspicious about these visitors.

I don't see a list, anywhere, of any candidates - has anyone heard info about this, or been visited by anyone?

  • Jason Ervin is 28th ward alderman (not sure who Irwin is). Also, the aldermen get shuffled, they don't suddenly choose to lose an area or gain areas. It's redistricting. Happens often.

  • NAFSBUC Walking my Fitbit and Flatcoat 10k steps/day

    OK, my bad, it is Ervin, not Irwin who will now have tri-Taylor and University Village, but he still approved a high rise in the middle of the historic district, against the wishes of the neighbors.
