20-year veteran of the CPD
Willie Cochran was elected in 2007, replacing Alderman Arenda Troutman who plead guilty to fraud charges.This is ironic, given that Cochran was indicted in 2016 on thefts from ward charity. He is currently battling corruption charges and will not be running for reelection in 2019.
He has contributed about $50,000 to his own committee but has paid himself over $130,000 from the same committee. He receives donations from non-profit advocacy groups such as the Chicago Committee that promotes minority attorneys in the city and A Better Chicago that supports non-profits that assist Chicago education. 
Note: The People's Lobby endorsed Jeannette Taylor for 20th ward alderman.
