Sitting Alderman Daniel La Spata Endorses Nick Ward for 48th Ward Alderman

 

Edgewater, Chicago, IL -- Only a few weeks after incumbent Harry Osterman announced his retirement, candidate for 48th Ward Alderman Nick Ward announced an endorsement from Alderman Daniel La Spata.

Alderman La Spata said: “Nick has proven that he’s ready to fight for working families, not only in the 48th but across the city. I can’t wait to serve with him in the City Council!

Alderman La Spata’s endorsement adds momentum to Ward’s people-powered campaign. Nick entered the race for 48th Ward Alderman in January 2022 and has since raised over $63,000 and knocked over 5,300 doors. He is endorsed by the independent political organization 48th Ward Neighbors for Justice.

Nick Ward said: “I’m honored to receive the endorsement of Alderman Daniel La Spata. Alderman La Spata is a champion for environmental justice, affordable housing, and enhanced cyclist infrastructure. I look forward to working with him in City Council to fight for working families across the city.

Alderman La Spata was elected in 2019 to represent the 1st Ward, which includes the neighborhoods of Logan Square, West Town, Wicker Park, Bucktown, Humboldt Park, Ukrainian Village, and East Village. He serves on the Committees for Environmental Protection and Energy, Housing and Real Estate, and Pedestrian and Traffic Safety. He is a member of the Progressive and Socialist Caucuses.
