Mayor Slays Competition
In other ballot issues on Tuesday, challenger Antonio French trounced incumbent Ward 21 Alderwoman Bennice Jones-King in a north city race that featured lots of ol'-fashioned mudslinging. Elsewhere, Joe Vaccaro beat out a crowded field to win an open aldermanic seat in south city's Ward 23.
Every other incumbent won his or her election. As I mentioned yesterday, voter turnout was light. Just 32,000 people bothered to cast a vote, or 14 percent of the total electorate. Check out the entire results, here.
