Joe Dunne Concedes 48th Ward Aldermanic Run-Off

In a statement released Friday, Joe Dunne conceded the race against Leni Manaa-Hoppenworth:

"April 7, 2023


Earlier today I called Leni Manaa-Hoppenworth to congratulate her on winning the election for Alderperson of the 48th Ward. Although the Board of Elections continues to count mail-in ballots, this morning's tally made it apparent that the outcome of the race will be in her favor.

It has been my honor and privilege to have received so much support from our community over the past months. Old friends and new have helped to carry my campaign forward and I am proud of what we have accomplished together. However, now is the time to acknowledge that a majority of the voters in our ward have chosen a different candidate.

I have enjoyed working with each and every one of you to articulate a vision for the future of the 48th Ward that celebrates our diversity, keeps our homes affordable, and our community safe for everyone.

Thank you all for your support. And, as always, thank you to my family for their patience and endurance throughout the campaign.

Yours truly.

Joe Dunne"
