Endorsement Tracker

In the waning days of the campaign, there's only one aldermanic endorsement that we're aware of during the past week.  As always, if you know of any new endorsements we may have missed and can document them, please email us.
  • James Cappleman received the endorsement of David Hoffman.  "Reform leader David Hoffman, the former Chicago Inspector General and U.S. Senate candidate, today strongly endorsed James Cappleman’s campaign for 46th Ward Alderman. Cappleman, a social worker, former teacher and community advocate, is in the April 5th run-off election to replace retiring Alderman Helen Shiller. Hoffman won the 46th Ward by 11 points in his February 2010 Democratic U.S. Senate Primary bid and is respected throughout the city for his clean government credentials, his anti-crime advocacy and his strong stance against the City’s controversial parking meter lease deal.  “James Cappleman has what it takes to fight crime and help reform Chicago City’s Hall,” said Hoffman, also a former federal prosecutor who fought gangs, drugs and gun violence prior to serving as Chicago’s top anti-corruption official. “He supports critical ethics reforms and has the depth of experience necessary to tackle crime in the 46th ward. He is the type of tough, reform-minded leader that we need in the Chicago City Council.”
The full list of endorsements is in the sidebar to the right, and more will be added weekly daily until Election Day.

  1. I have tremendous respect for David Hoffman. Squeaky clean record and strong reform credentials. This is an awesome endorsement.

    And if the senate primary season had lasted even just another two weeks, I think he would have squeaked by Gianoulias, and very well could have gone on to beat Kirk. He was CLEARLY the better candidate.
