Supporters of the Latino Caucus-backed “Coalition Map” proposal to redraw the city’s 50 wards are hoping for a vote on a modified version of their map during the April City Council meeting. The vote is a last-ditch effort to try to force a restart of the referendum filing process for June 28 ballot so they can incorporate changes to accommodate a new ally, and opposers of the map call the new tactic a “stunt.”
Chicago voters are already set to choose the next ward map during the June Primary Election. But the 15 aldermen led by Ald. Gilbert Villegas (36) proposed an ordinance with a tweaked version (O2022-913) of the “Coalition Map” proposal during Wednesday’s City Council meeting.
