Nowotny to Run for Alderman in 46th Ward

The 46th Ward on the city's North Side is a hotbed of political activity. Highly organized and home to many of the city's good government activists, the Uptown centered ward can be relied upon to seethe with invective come election time. The entry of Don Nowotny, the Ward's Streets and Sanitation Commissioner, into the race to replace long-time alderman Helen Shiller, ensures we won't be disappointed. Nowotny's entry also means the race will have at least three openly gay candidates--creating the potential for Chicago's City Council to have two openly gay aldermen.

Updated to improve my geography reputation; original post included Edgewater.

Ramsin,

I am seething with invective reading your post.

The 46th Ward at no point enters Edgewater.

It is entirely in Uptown and Lakeview. Mostly Uptown.

Please correct your horrendous error before I am overwhelmed with invective and cease to exist.

Toodles.

Ah, the perils of ward and neighborhood boundaries. Considering I was born in Edgewater and lived in West Rogers, you'd figure I'd get the boundaries right by now.

The last thing I'd want is provoke the ire of you irascible Edgewater Uptown types.

Thanks IP

This is a story of life, love, and property damage. It is a story involving crystallized water, piled some 19 inches deep. The story forces us to confront greed, manipulation, logistics, and physics. The characters include the legendary and the ordinary, from Rahm Emanuel to a bus driver whose name we'll likely never know. More...

When the Room Is Small and You Stink

When he aped his mentor Bill Clinton in his inauguration speech, one could guess that Rahm Emanuel would be going to an old playbook that may not work for him in the long run. Rahm Emanuel may have unwittingly learned... More...
