Bernie and Sue.
If you’re looking for old-style, rough-and-tumble Chicago politics, get on the Skyway and head for the 10th ward.
That is where Sue Sadlowski Garza beat Alderman John Pope last year in an election that had all the drama you would expect when a Machine alderman gets challenged by progressive community and a teacher union activist.
However, in the 10th ward the politically dead don’t stay dead.
On March 15 there will be an election for Democratic Committeeman.
Sue is running for that position to further consolidate progressive politics on the East Side.
The Machine is running for the same spot.
Note: John Pope still calls himself the alderman.
Thank you for all of the great work you have done in the 10th Ward and continue to do!! https://t.co/UixzFo95f7
