Tuesday evening, Kim Walz released the following statement on the race for Alderwoman in the 46th Ward:
"I am endlessly grateful to my supporters who put their faith in me and my campaign. I also want to thank my friends, family, team, and our amazing volunteers for their unwavering encouragement throughout this journey. None of this would be possible without them, and I am so grateful for their support.
"Over the last few months, I’ve listened to people across the 46th Ward speak about the issues facing them and their families – they want safer streets, more affordable housing options, and better support for people with substance abuse or mental health challenges, or who are unhoused.
"I will do whatever I can to support Angela in bringing people together to enact real progress on those issues and more to make our neighborhood a stronger, safer place for everyone.
"From a young age, my parents instilled in me the importance of service, and I look forward to identifying additional opportunities to improve the community I call home."
UU Note: As of late Tuesday night, there has been no statement from the 48th Ward's Joe Dunne on his race with Leni Manaa-Hoppenworth.
