Race for 23rd Ward Alderman

Incumbent reelected

Ald. Silvana Tabares is seeking a full term representing the 23rd Ward, which includes Garfield Ridge, Clearing, Archer Heights, West Eldson, Chicago Lawn, West Lawn, Marquette Park and Gage Park. A former state representative, Tabares was appointed by Mayor Rahm Emanuel to replace Ald. Mike Zalewski when he retired in 2018. She faces Paul Villareal, Jr., who has criticized machine politics and vowed to reduce crime, property taxes and focus on the revitalization of Archer Avenue and 63rd Street.


To win, candidates must receive more than 50 percent of the vote. If no candidate reaches that threshold, the top two candidates will advance to a run off on April 2.

Percentages are based on the available ballots tallied by the Chicago Board of Elections. Percentages listed do not indicate a winner until all ballots are counted.
