Since taking office, Alderman Cappleman has made it one of his top priorities to businesses in his ward.


    Alderman Cappleman created a Zoning & Development Committee and uses Participatory Budgeting which decides how ward menu money is spent.

Dear Neighbor,

In 2011, it was my honor to be elected Alderman and have the opportunity to serve the 46th Ward in Chicago’s City Council. It’s been nearly four years and I’m as excited as I’ve ever been to have this job.

Since being sworn into office, a lot of work has been done. We have partnered with residents, community organizations, businesses and other community stakeholders to strategically address the problems facing the 46th Ward and implement long-term solutions that are fair and work to the benefit of everyone in our community. (You can read more about my priorities for the 46th Ward here.)

While a lot of work has been done, there is still a lot of work to do and I’m not backing down.┬áIt’s for this reason I am asking for your support as I seek re-election this February 24th. You can stay up to date with campaign happenings by signing up for our newsletter, volunteering for the campaign, or making a donation.

Thank you for your continued support. With your help I know we can continue to make the 46th Ward the best home it can be for all of its residents.
