Here is the link to the WBEZ story by Chip Mitchell. This is followup to the last story.


Aldermanic Runoff Election for 31st and 36 Wards – Millie Santiago and Gilbert Villegas.

I took this images as I was working on the story for WBEZ – Chicago Public Radio.

Images were taken at victory party for Milly Santiago and Gilbert Villegas at the Logan Square Auditorium. I think this was probably the most important election besides the mayoral election. Long time deputy major Regner “Ray” Suarez lost to Milly Santiago. Also Gilbert Villegas won the election for the 36th ward. Members of the progressive caucus including Alderman Proco Joe Moreno celebrated with newly elected Alderman’s Santiago and Villegas.
