Two additional candidates enter 48th Ward race on final day to file

According to the Chicago Board of Elections website, two additional candidates today submitted petitions/signatures to officially enter the 48th Ward Aldermanic race and be placed on the ballot: Phil Bernstein and Jose E. Arteaga.

Phil Bernstein is an independent economist and small business owner who has vowed to donate 1/3 of the Alderman salary to charity. You can learn more about his campaign at bernsteinforalderman.com.

Unfortunately, we do not know anything at this time about Mr. Arteaga, nor does he seem to have a campaign website.

The deadline to enter the race was this evening, so the final count of candidates will end at five.
