Alderman Smith will NOT seek re-election

Its official, per the Chicago Sun Times, 48th Ward Alderman Mary Ann Smith will not seek re-election after 21 years. Smith says she is tired of “trying to be all things to all people.” She also states she loved doing it, but she is looking forward to focusing her time toward environmental actions and the arts. Mary Ann Smith has done a lot for Edgewater and the City of Chicago since 1989, and we have no doubt that she will continue to do so. We thank her for 21 years of service & dedication to the Ward and wish her the best in her future endeavors.
