The rich and the gerrymandered

Chicago’s 2nd Ward is currently one of the most gerrymandered, and one of the most prosperous, in the city. [1]

Hopkins was elected as alderman in 2015, after more than $1.3 million was spent on the race, making it one of the most expensive alderman races in Chicago history[2]. He formerly served as chief of staff to Cook County Commissioner John P Daley.[3] He receives money from real estate and entertainment interests such as the Illinois Hotel/Motel PAC and the Ritz Carlton, and property developers like Lakin Property Management.
