In the Jackson Park Watch Update sent out yesterday, we erroneously stated that 5th Ward Alderman Leslie Hairston, who has recently announced her support for a Community Benefits Agreement, had been re-elected. However, as of this moment, the 5th Ward race has not yet been resolved, and William Calloway (who is a long-time supporter of the CBA initiative) is challenging the vote count.
We apologize for the error.
