If Chicago City Council members got graded for how often they show up to required meetings at City Hall, the average alderman would get a D. That’s based on a joint analysis, by WBEZ and The Daily Line, of City Council attendance records between the start of the current term in 2015 and the end of last year.
On Tuesday, Chicagoans will decide which aldermen deserve another term in office — and the six-figure salary that goes with it.
Before you vote, enter your address and search for your alderman’s attendance rate.
