I've written a little bit about the Chicago government on this blog and hopefully with the help of the Chicago Tribune we can talk about those who have seats on the Chicago City Council. In 2000 Rick Kogan and Charles Osgood who I assume is a photographer in the Tribune (you might have seen his work in the Sunday Tribune magazine) made a visit to each of Chicago's 50 wards. They plan to do the same in 2006, the only difference is they're doing so just before the next municipal election.
Check out Kogan's column from New Years' Day and hopefully I'll have some more good stuff to report from there.
Meet the Aldermen by Rick Kogan from Chicago Tribune.
It also appears that there are already two pieces on two south lakefront aldermen.
