Race for 3rd Ward Alderman

Incumbent reelected

Four-term Ald. Pat Dowell has represented the 3rd Ward since 2007, an area that includes the South Loop, Bronzeville and Fuller Park. She’s faced criticism for her stance on CPS’ controversial plan to close National Teachers Academy and convert it to a new South Loop high school, a plan that has been scrapped for now.

Dowell faces Alex Willis, a healthcare policy analyst who supports community benefits agreements for large developments in the area and says wealthy developers have "taken over the political establishment in Chicago."


Candidates appear in ballot order.
