ENTERED OFFICE: Rookie—again. Defeated incumbent Sharon Denise Dixon, who had defeated him four years ago.
PREVIOUS LIFE: Alderman from 1995 to 2007
WHY HE WANTED THE JOB BACK: Hard to say—this is one of the poorest, toughest wards in town.
PROSPECTS: Not good. Invariably this ward will get sliced and diced in the coming remap.http://www.newseum.org/todaysfrontpages/hr.asp?fpVname=IL_HOY&ref_pge=lst
