Research scientist and community activist Marianne Lalonde is making another run for 46th Ward alderman, four years after forcing outgoing Ald. James Cappleman (46) into a runoff and losing by just 25 votes. Lalonde is a political organizer who helped start the progressive Lakeview Uptown Independent Political Organization and is an energy efficiency professional. She has also served on the Associates’ Board of Sarah's Circle, the Illinois Environmental Council's Young Professionals Board, the North Lake Shore Drive Study Task Force and on advisory committees at Clarendon Park and Uplift High School, according to her website. She has said the COVID-19 pandemic exemplifies why it’s important to have someone with a scientific background on the City Council.
