The 4th Ward stretches from Downtown to Hyde Park along the lakefront and includes parts of Kenwood, the South Loop and Bronzeville. The ward is also home to mayoral candidate, Cook County Board President and former Ald. Toni Preckwinkle’s powerful political base. Ald. Sophia King was first appointed to the seat in February 2016 after former alderman Will Burns left to take a job at AirBnB. She was then elected in a February 2017 special election to fill out the remainder of Burns’ term, avoiding a runoff race.
King faces off again against real estate attorney Ebony Lucas, who lost to King in the 2017 special election.
Candidates appear in ballot order.
