After last Monday's rancorous informal Common Council meeting, Alderman Eileen Halloran (Fifth Ward) declared she would not seek reelection. Since then she has reconsidered. Yesterday, Halloran informed Gossips that she would run after all.
That leaves only the First Ward, which after the wards were redrawn in 2017 is the largest ward geographically, with only one candidate seeking to represent the ward on the Common Council: Rebecca Wolff.
There are two weeks left to gather signatures on designating petitions. Only thirty-two signatures are needed to get on the ballot to run for First Ward alderman.
