Race for 16th Ward Alderman

Challenger elected

Ald. Toni Foulkes is running for a second term representing the 16th Ward, which includes all or parts of Gage Park, Chicago Lawn, Englewood, West Englewood and Back of the Yards. Foulkes is facing a re-match from 2015, when she defeated Stephanie Coleman, the daughter of former Ald. Shirley Coleman and the ward’s Democratic committeeperson. Much like in the 2015 race, the candidates are focusing on issues of economic development, safety and education.
