Endorsement Tracker

Here are the aldermanic endorsements that have come in since our last "Endorsement Tracker" post, on Friday, March 18th.  As always, if you know of any new endorsements we may have missed and can document them, please email us.
  • Molly Phelan received the endorsements of City Clerk-Elect Susana Mendoza, Chicago Association of Realtors, and Chicago Fire Fighters Union Local 2.
  • James Cappleman received the endorsements of Gay Chicago Magazine and Ald. Scott Waguespack.
The full list of endorsements is in the sidebar to the right, and more will be added weekly until Election Day.


  1. No worries UU, thx for the hard work. (doing alot of blogging tonight, stuck in Indiana)

  2. Has anyone reached out to Michael Carrol to ask who he supports? I ask since he has great knowledge of crime prevention and clearly the candidates are making that the number one priority. His endorsement might carry a lot of weight.

    As usual thank you UU for keeping us informed!

  3. Now since UU is apparently not running stories on fundraisers I'll post a comment.

    See I can be productive. I'm not alllll about the sarcasm.
