BREAKING-Susan Sadlowski Garza Victorious
in 10th Ward Upset
Reform Candidate Beats the Machine
CHICAGO-With 100% of the vote reporting, reform candidate Susan Sadlowski Garza has defeated corrupt machine incumbent Ald John Pope in the 10th Ward.
Garza, a Chicago Public Schools counselor, received 5587 votes to 5533 votes, based on all 36 precinct returns.
Badly outspent by the Pope forces, Garza was able to gut out a win based on a people-powered movement that advocated against the corporate control of the 10th Ward.
"Nobody said it would be easy, but, in hearing the voices of people who have been ignored for so long, we together were able to upset the status quo and chart a new path for the forgotten 10th Ward," Garza said early Wednesday.
"Absentee ballots have yet to be counted completely, and our campaign will remain vigilant in observing the process by which they are handled and counted, so the voice of the people is not stolen."
A Press Conference has been scheduled.....
