Race for 1st Ward Alderman

Challenger elected

The 1st Ward includes all or parts of Logan Square, Wicker Park, Ukrainian Village, Noble Square, Humboldt Park and West Town. Ald. “Proco” Joe Moreno, who was first appointed to the seat in 2010, narrowly avoided a run-off against three challengers in 2015. Key issues in the race include transportation, development and housing affordability.

Moreno faces Daniel La Spata, an organizer with the Logan Square Neighborhood Association with a master’s degree in urban planning and public policy, who has been pressing Moreno on campaign donations from developers and affordable housing in the ward.


Candidates appear in ballot order.
