Welcome to the Chicago Cloutwiki
This site is designed to provide basic information on the political history and background of Chicago's political leaders. The information gathered here is a combination of original reporting and publicly available information assembled by Aldertrack's professional reporters. When possible, we include links to articles.
The inspiration for this site is David K. Fremon's Chicago Politics: Ward by Ward, an unparalleled snapshot of 1980's Chicago politics.
To get started, try using the search box at top or choose one of the categories on the left. As you explore, you'll find entries in red. They have not yet been written, but we hope to get to them soon.
