DescriptionAfter 44 years, the Mell family dynasty in Chicago’s 33rd Ward has ended.

The new era will be led by newly elected Ald. Rossana Rodriguez Sanchez (33rd), one of six members of the City Council’s new socialist caucus.

Ald. Deb Mell (33rd), daughter of legendary Ald. Richard Mell (33rd), has conceded to Rodriguez Sanchez after a partial recount showed her 13 votes behind.

When Rodriguez Sanchez is sworn in on May 20, it will be the first time since 1975 the Northwest Side ward that includes parts of Ravenswood Manor, Avondale, Albany Park and Irving Park has an alderman with a last name other than Mell.
