Race for 6th Ward Alderman

Incumbent reelected

The 6th Ward includes all or parts of Chatham, Englewood and West Englewood. The son of once Mayor and Ald. Eugene Sawyer, incumbent Ald. Roderick Sawyer was elected to his father’s seat in 2011. Voters in the ward want to see results — economic development, crumbling infrastructure, and local businesses lacking support are all key concerns. They’ll look to their next alderman to address policing issues, too, as some residents say they’re tired of the wards’ kids being treated like criminals.

Sawyer faces Deborah Foster-Bonner, an accountant and block club president.
