Three more candidates seek city posts


Two challengers have stepped into the race for 3rd Ward alderman and one is looking to take over the city clerk's job in Evanston in next spring's election.

Alex Block and Alex Morgan are circulating petitions to challenge incumbent Melissa Wynne in the 3rd Ward. And Devon Reid is seeking to unseat incumbent Rodney Greene as city clerk.

Block is a 2010 ETHS grad who was on the debate team while attending Miami University in Ohio. He also organized an online petition drive against the sale of the Harley Clarke mansion.

Morgan is field and training director for the Progressive Turnout Project. He's a 2011 graduate of Kalamazoo College and has worked for Teach for America. He's also communications director for the Democratic Party of Evanston.

Reid, in 2011 became, at 18, one of youngest candidates to qualify for the ballot in a Chicago aldermanic race — in his unsuccessful bid to become 26th Ward alderman there. He's chair of the Millennial Political Action Committee and has also been active in a group trying to encourage food waste recycling called Plates Over Waste.
