Ward 16 : Foulkes New Leader
Alderman Toni Foulkes likely successor
CHICAGO, IL - Ogden & Fry, conducted a 1-Question Poll on behalf of Aldertrack, Wednesday, February 11, 2015 for Alderman of the 16th Ward with 215 respondents.
Respondents were selected by random sampling of likely voters.
This Englewood Ward was difficult to poll because of a very high rate of disconnected phone numbers, however Toni Foulkes lead is statistically significant. Foulkes who is currently Alderman in the 15th Ward had decided to challenge incumbent Alderman JoAnn Thompson in the new 16th Ward. Due to the unfortunate passing of Alderman Thompson, Foulkes has a commanding lead.
The data does not support further conclusions, such as the likelihood of a runoff or runner-up.
Since most activity in Municipal Elections occurs in the last 2 weeks, there is still room for further development in this race.
