CHICAGO (CBS) — The 1st Ward alderman on the city’s North Side will be Daniel La Spata.

Joe Moreno, who has been the alderman for the 1st Ward since 2011, was challenged by Daniel La Spata and a write-in candidate Justin Tucker.

Recently Moreno had been in the news for filing a police report on a stolen car. Moreno later admitted was a misunderstanding between himself and a girlfriend who said she was allowed to borrow his vehicle.
