Moore spent $945,839

Retiring Aldermen Could Create Clout Vacuum

Russ Stewart, Chicago Daily Observer, 17 April 2009
"Moore is desperately seeking an escape hatch from his aldermanic post, which he has held since 1991. In 2007, Moore spent $945,839 and eked out a 251-vote runoff victory over Don Gordon. Moore’s 2011 prospects rank between dismal and non-existent. The alderman, age 50, fervently hopes that U.S. Representative Jan Schakowsky (D-9) runs for U.S. Senator in 2010. ...

Gordon is running again. If Moore ejects or retires, he’d likely support David Fagus, the ward’s Democratic committeeman, for alderman. Other candidates may include community activist Katy Hogan and ... loser Jim Ginderske. Moore had $59,265 in his account."
