On our win:
"It has to be one of the biggest upsets of recent Chicago political history."
-Justin Kauffman, WGN
The media has reported on our win as "unexpected." We did start off with long odds, but by the time of the election, the win wasn't unexpected to us. That's because we talked with so many of you 33rd Ward residents who told us that you wanted positive change. Thank you for voting in that change.

Interview with Wayne Besen
I am proud to be endorsed by Alderman Carlos Rosa
and endorsed and adopted by Northside Democracy for America.
On March 3, I appeared at a forum sponsored by northwest side neighborhood associations. I talked about what I would do as committeeman. My opponent also came and spoke. We debated the future of the Democratic party in Chicago.
