Ward remap: Could a Black Alderman lose their ward?

From a variety of reliable sources, one of these three Black Aldermen may lose their ward in a deal cut between the city council's Black and Hispanic Caucuses. These negotiations also include Rules Committee Chairman Richard Mell and note that the Rule Committee does have authority over the city ward remap.

So the following Alderman who could lose their wards are Toni Foulkes (15), Joann Thompson - a former Cook County probation officer (16), and returning Alderman Michael Chandler - who previously worked for the city's water department (24). Still at current there is no news as to whether or not this would impact the remap of the 6th ward with respect to the neighborhoods of Chesterfield, West Chesterfield, and Roseland Heights.

Stay tuned!!!!
