Chicago Alderman, 46th ward, IL
Marianne Lalonde is a PhD scientist, a community leader, and a compassionate neighbor, running for City Council in Chicago’s 46th Ward. She aspires to be 46th Ward Alderman because she feels strongly that her diverse ward should be inclusive and accessible for all members of the community, regardless of socioeconomic status, race, ethnicity, or mental health status. She is a champion of increasing access to neighborhood assets, affordable housing, and for gun violence prevention. Marianne would be the first scientist on Chicago’s city council, where her technical expertise will serve her not only to advocate for science based causes like sustainability, but to view data critically and effectively.
