Race for 2nd Ward Alderman

Incumbent reelected

Some say it looks like a horseshoe, some say it looks like a lobster: The very gerrymandered 2nd Ward includes all or parts of Lincoln Park, Old Town, Wicker Park, Streeterville, Bucktown, Gold Coast and the Ukrainian Village. Ald. Brian Hopkins was first elected 2nd Ward alderman (to Bob Fioretti’s old seat) in 2015.

Hopkins is running unopposed this time, and the controversial proposed Lincoln Yards development — a development he’s signed off on — continues to be the ward’s hottest issue.


Candidates appear in ballot order.
