Race for 39th Ward Alderman

Race goes to runoff

After running the 39th ward for 24 years, Ald. Margaret Laurino won’t be on the ballot this time around.The ward, which encompasses all or parts of Albany Park, North Park, Hollywood Park, Mayfair, Sauganash, Edgebrook, Old Edgebrook, Gladstone Park, Indian Woods and Forest Glen, has been in the Laurino family for decades, and new candidates say that has benefited some pockets of the ward — but not others. Candidates have vowed to focus on crime reduction, affordable housing and creating more equity in the ward, so folks in Albany Park have just as much access to ward services as those in Sauganash.


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.
