Aside from a massive self-funded campaign effort, the incumbent in the race for Chicago’s 43rd Ward remains the candidate drawing the most money from donors even as the previous alderman has endorsed one of his opponents. The ward includes Lincoln Park, Old Town and Gold Coast.
Ald. Timmy Knudsen (43) has served as alderman since September following the departure of former Ald. Michele Smith last August. Mayor Lori Lightfoot picked Knudsen, former chair of the Chicago Zoning Board of Appeals, out of 17 applicants to succeed Smith. Some of those applicants are running in this year’s election.
