Race for 27th Ward Alderman

Incumbent reelected

Despite objections to her petitions, candidate Cynthia Bednarz will be on the 27th Ward ballot next month — a move that means powerful Ald. Walter Burnett Jr. will face a contested race as he seeks his seventh term. A key ally to former Mayor Richard M. Daley and Mayor Rahm Emanuel, Burnett voted with Rahm 100 percent of the time. The diverse — and booming — 27th Ward includes parts of the West Loop, Greektown, Garfield Park, the Near North Side, Old Town, West Humboldt Park, West Town, the Medical District and Goose Island neighborhoods.


Candidates appear in ballot order.
