A total of 210 candidates filed petition signatures to run for an aldermanic seat across the city’s 50 wards and Monday marks the final day to file objections to get any of the City Council hopefuls kicked off the 2023 municipal ballot.
And while this year’s more than 200 candidates may seem like a large number of people running for any office, it’s almost the exact average of the number of aldermanic candidates who filed petitions to run in the past four municipal elections. Still, with a big swath of alderman retiring at the end of this term or running for mayor, some say they expected this year’s aldermanic pool to be higher.
